Oh my! What a good night's sleep I had last night. Thank God!! Honestly, I don't think I had much choice, but you never know.
And today, on this last Tiny Needle Tuesday of June 2021, I have a finished sampler to show!!
Gosh I do love how this one turned out. The design is called "How Does My Garden Grow?" by NeedleWork Press. I stitched it on 36 count linen using one strand of Belle Soie Silk Thread over two linen threads. The design is roughly 8.75" by 10.6". I finished it on 6/23/21.
I have not yet started a new piece, but I've picked out the Pomegranate Bird Sampler by Heartstring Samplery. Here is a picture of it:
Love the birds and the colors in this sampler. BUT...who knows? When I go to pull things out a little later I could completely change my mind. It would not be the first time - LOL.
Last year Fletch put a blueberry bush in our garden. This year we have our first crop:
Barely enough for a taste, but I did try one and it was delicious!
Oh! Fletch did get around to re-potting some of our houseplants yesterday. When he took the lemon tree out of the pot he discovered a large ant nest and tons of eggs! I'm not sure how they got there or if they came from the nursery where Colin & Mailing got the plant. But YUCK!!!! All new dirt and hopefully NO ants now.
I've another busy day ahead of me. My end-of-month things still need to be done (work-wise) - I never got to them yesterday. And, I have my pre-op appointment with my eye doctor. Believe it or not, I've already received a bill from the facility where my cataract surgery will be done next week. I'm just ignoring that piece of mail until I actually have the surgery.
Really though, all I'd like to do is curl up and knit, read, stitch, nap, etc. This guy kept me company last night:
Trying to decide which thing to take over: knitting or reading...or just succombing to sleeping - LOL.
