Hello and Good Morning,
How are you? I am well. I slept well (8 hours - woo-hoo!) and believe I am ready to face the day. We ended up just getting our flu shots yesterday - the new Covid booster will not be available till mid-September. I'm still not clear why CVS scheduled us (since that's where we have received our other boosters, so they have our records....). Whatever!
Yesterday Fletch cleaned out the bird house where the wrens had nested. Not a very pleasing nest - lol
The little wren building it struggled to get twigs, etc. into the house. It provided for good entertainment watching him/her, but it also provided for sloppy nest building.
And, no frogs at the water feature yet, but some sparrows were sure having fun cavorting in the water yesterday!
(Taken through my kitchen window) At one point when I looked out there were six birds around the water and more waiting their turn! While Fletch and I sat on the patio a little later, they would not come in, but they were flying all around hoping we would leave so that they could get back to splashing and having fun.
Well friends, it is Tuesday, so time for a Tiny Needle update. A bunch of progress has been made. First up we have the cacti triptych:
It won't take long to finish the Prickly Pear portion. This is such an engaging piece to stitch - I'm loving it.
There was also some progress on the Sampler Aux Bouquets. First an overall view:
And then a close up of what was done this past week - a few more blooms in the vase and another winged friend.
The vase seems to be taking FOREVER to complete and I confess to being a bit weary of PINK. Fortunately I am still enjoying this piece a lot too. Good thing as there is still much to stitch on it. I think I am roughly half way through (yup - it is going to be a BIG sampler when completed).
Good news - the parts for my washing machine already came in! We got a call yesterday while we were out and about saying they could come today. However, we already have plans (and I'm sort of caught up on laundry anyway), so we are sticking with our Thursday date. Good to know that everything is ready though.
Cloudy and grey here today. Hopefully it will not get too sticky out. Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday - do something FUN!!
