The sun was out yesterday and after such a soggy, grey, damp weekend, that was a joy to see. But, it was so windy that being outside was not pleasant. Fletch was out and about working a bit in the garden. I managed to walk out and cut more Lily of the Valley along with some Azaleas (gorgeous), but was really swamped with work, so stayed in at the computer all day. Today we are back to the overcast skies.
Now it is Tuesday morning and time for a Tiny Needle Update. Woo-Hoo!! The spotted stag has been completed. That darn animal seemed to take forever (and it did), but I love the end result, so all is good.
Do you see the little brown and red bird above the stag? Perhaps a robin? That is the latest motif. There are two more birds and a whole lot of gold at the bottom to stitch and then this baby will be finished. I make no promises as to when that might be. This is the beginning of a really crazy time for me at work (budget season), so I will not have much time for knitting, stitching or reading. C'est la vie. Anyway, here's an overall shot of Ellen Harrison.
Fletch and I will head out later to procure some groceries. I have a conference call at 11, but I think I'm going to skip it. After my two rather long calls yesterday, I don't feel like participating. Plus today's call could have upwards of 75 people on it! That is way too many. Instead, I will take the time to (hopefully) (finally) set up my new laptop. The peripherals were delivered yesterday morning, but I haven't even opened the box.
I was made aware of more organizational changes at work effective immediately. Some are a bit disturbing and it all makes me wonder if I can really hold out as long as I would like to. Time will tell.
Wherever this Tuesday finds you, I hope you are having some fun! Time for me to dry my hair and pour another cup of coffee. I'll be back tomorrow for Unraveled Wednesday!
