The sun is out and the sky is blue. I slept a bit later than usual...Tyg was out all night and therefore wasn't meowing to go out at 4 or 5 a.m. And I slept well! Halleluiah!! Did anyone else watch the Ken Burns special on Hemingway that started on PBS last night (on for 3 consecutive nights...2 hours each night)? We watched and thought it was well done (as all of Ken Burns' productions seem to be).
Before we get into TNT (Tiny Needle Tuesday), what with April being Poetry Month, I wanted to mention that my friend Leslie just had another poem published! It is here: ohenry magazine and if you scroll down to Poet's Corner, her poem is "Industrial Fabric." So happy for her and proud of her!
Now on to our standing Tuesday date with my stitching. It is moving ever closer to the finish! There is still much to stitch...some more creatures and more letters, a leaf and a mushroom!! (or maybe it is a toadstool). Here is an overview:
This past week I stitched a moose, a second rabbit, a second fox and a couple of letters (R & W). Here are close ups of the new critters:
I know I say this every week, but I do love the way this is coming together. Also, I was so curious about whether or not the motifs at the bottom would match up that one day I basted from the bottom of the motif on the left over to the one at the right corner and YAY - they meet up perfectly! No need for me to fudge anything.
Still to be determined is the color I will use for my own 3 initials and I will also add 2021 somewhere. Any suggestions? I want the letters to not be the same green as the other letters...I could use another color from the sampler or use a completely new color that is not currently in the sampler. I'm mulling over ideas, but if you have thoughts please let me know.
Such a beautiful looking day - I'm hoping to get out for a walk and maybe do some archery. I did go to the office yesterday so that is not on today's docket.
Here's hoping your Tuesday is sunny and pleasant - enjoy!!
