A Chilly Good Morning to You!
According to my phone it is around 15 outside. That is cold. Mabel is already out there running around. She woke me at 6, had a quick bite to eat and then wanted to go out. She puffs herself up and gets fluffy and warm. Yesterday (I don't think it made it out of the 20's) she was in and out about a million times. Meowing loudly on either side of the door. At one point I saw her run up the apple tree, so I went out with my phone to get a picture.
If you click to enlarge, you'll be able to see her little tufts at the tips of her ears. So darn cute.
Yesterday was an easy work day. Thank goodness! I felt worn out and took a good 1.5 hour nap in the afternoon, sleeping so deeply it was difficult to get going when I woke up. There was both stitching and reading that took place, as well as talking to a friend on the phone. There will most likely be another nap this afternoon as last night I managed to be awake from 1 a.m. till 4 a.m.! I hate when that happens!
Anyway, it is Tuesday, or Tiny Needle Tuesday, or TNT. There has been progress made on both samplers. First up is the red alphabet in the Adam and Eve sampler.
There are several more alphabets before I get to the interesting part at the bottom. The next horizontal line across though contains some green...so a tiny change from straight red.
The Visiting Bird sampler is coming along nicely. A lot of solid fill-in stitching, but I am loving the way it looks.
Where the break in the outline on the right occurs is where the legs and feet of the (visiting) bird will be. I may stitch them today!
These are both on 32 count linen, using DMC threads doubled. At times the thread seems a bit thick, but I think a single strand on 32 count is too little. At this point I'm not going to change!
I'm not sure what work will be like today. So far it is quiet. I'm making eggs and biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast - yum! There are a couple of errands I need to run today and whether I walk or not depends on the weather. The wind has been howling - all day yesterday and all night I could hear it. If that calms down I may be able to venture out. Time will tell.
Hoping everyone is having a great week! Stay warm and safe!!
