The sky cleared overnight and at dark thirty this morning, the crescent moon was shining brightly and there were so many stars visible from our bedroom window. It was beautiful. And, I spotted a deer browsing under the apple tree.
Now I'm up and have had a little coffee, put a fresh/clean tablecloth on the table, gathered up some things for laundry (which I will do once Fletch is up and out of the shower). I did get over to Colin's yesterday and watered the house plants and gathered up the mail (all junk) for the recycling bin. I also cleaned out the last of the condiments that were aging in the frig.
Now it is time for Tiny Needle Tuesday. More progress was made on both pieces this past week. More on the larger one, but the Cacti Triptych also saw a few additions.
More orange blooms have been added. There is a bit more green to be stitched (and more blooms) as well as the base of the Ocotillo.
My major focus was the big Sampler Aux Bouquets. Quite a bit more was added to this piece.
A tiny rabbit and leaf at the top; a pot with branches full of green leaves, a beetle (I love that beetle), more border at the bottom and an outline at the top where there will be something. Plus a few hearts scattered around. Here is a shot of the overall picture.
Still quite a bit more to do on this one. Both of these pieces will be coming with me on vacation (as well as knitting of course).
Today we will be picking up a few things at the grocery store to take with us on vacation. Since we are doing Air BnBs, we plan to do most dinners wherever we are staying - we will take steaks, hot dogs, salmon, etc. to cook. Plus veggies. And yogurt and eggs for breakfast. I'm taking my mini frother from our camper so that I can have frothed milk for my coffee. All the comforts of home! My bosses are all in meetings up in Boston today, so I should be left alone! LOL
Wherever this Tuesday finds you, I hope all is well and that you are having some fun.
