The air feels somewhat fresher this morning. We had a major storm warning last night. There was wind. Also thunder and lightening. But we did not get all that much rain. Nothing measurable in the rain gauge. My brother and SIL in Delaware had a lot of rain though. Just depends on where you are I guess.
I slept in this morning and am on the groggy side, but let's talk TNT or Tiny Needle Tuesday. A few more things were added to the Sampler Aux Bouquets. A couple of new motifs and some more letters in the alphabet that was started a bit back.
I stitched the vase at the bottom yesterday afternoon and that was a PITA. It was so humid that the linen and the floss were both sticking to my fingers. LOL Here's an overall shot of where the sampler is as of today.
Still an enormous amount to be stitched. Luckily this is still fun.
I had mentioned that Colin sent me a cross stitch kit from Guadalupe National Park. This is what he sent:
And here is my start:
LOL - not much! The kit came with 18 count Aida cloth which I am unable to stitch on, so I dug into my stash and found a piece of 36 count white linen. I am stitching over 2 threads, so it will end up being the same size as the kit. I am using the threads provided in the kit - they are all DMC threads, so if I run out, that will not be a problem. Hopefully I'll have a bit more progress to show on this one next week.
Well, time for me to get motivated. I want/need to do some chores this morning (cleaning bathrooms and getting bath rugs and towels washed) before we go grocery shopping. First, however, I definitely need more coffee.
Wishing you all a lovely Tuesday - enjoy!
