Hello you and hello March. Wow! February (and January) seemed to fly by. I turned the calendar page this morning and there are just 3 weeks till the Spring Equinox. Bulbs are beginning to show up in our yard - under the apple tree and in other beds. It is a hopeful sign.
I was only at my office for maybe an hour yesterday. On the drive there I saw protesters near a middle school that I pass. One of the signs read "Free the Smiles! Mask Choice" - what the heck? I guess PA has lifted its mask mandate but perhaps the school still requires masks? I don't know, but with all the crap going on in the world that seemed a little silly to me. And, for the record, I am continuing to wear my mask when I go to the library or the grocery store, etc. My choice.
Anyway, the afternoon got away from me. There was a lot going on work-wise so I never got a walk in (or a nap). Later, before dinner, I spent time looking at/going through yarn stash. Yikes! Of course I found skeins I had completely forgotten I had (I'm sure this happens to all of you too) and I'm wondering why I ordered more the other week and why I'm contemplating going to a LYS in a week or so.
Meanwhile it is TNT or Tiny Needle Tuesday, so let's see what has been stitched in the past week. Not a lot, but some progress has been made.
The dividing band I'm working on now is taking forever! It is squares of red and green. Each square is 4 stitches wide by 5 stitches tall. The solid filling takes time, but also switching colors pretty frequently slows things down. The lower case alphabet that started at the end of the last line will continue under the red and green dividing band. There will be another dividing band and then numbers (!!) under that and then (finally) I will get to the meat of this sampler...Adam & Eve and assorted birds and motifs and (finally!!) colors other than red and green. Soon, but still a bit of a way to go till I get there.
A Visiting Bird just had two small motifs added to it this past week. There is a bunch of solid stitching left on this piece, so it will be a little while before this one is finished. Luckily I'm still enjoying stitching on both of these pieces.
I've got a project I'm working on for work and Fletch and I plan to do a little grocery shopping this morning. I'd also like to schedule a pedicure. But first it's time for another cup of coffee. Enjoy your day!
