Boy this first week of November has flown by! And, even though it is November, it is warm - my computer says it is currently 52 degrees. 52 degrees and it is not even yet 6:30 a.m. Strange and weird weather (again).
My office visit was brief yesterday - just as I wanted it to be. I was home before 10:30! I have my new fob and once again I am set up to print. We are doing away with our print servers at my office. When I send something to print it goes to the cloud. Then I can walk to any printer, tap my fob and then print whatever it was I had sent. I still have a small laser printer on a credenza by my desk, but for "big" jobs or color jobs I use one of our larger printers. Supposedly I can now print from any printer that is owned by my company - whether it be in Charlotte, Atlanta, New York or wherever. It all sounds a bit "big-brotherish" to me and I certainly don't understand how it all works (nor do I need to).
Meanwhile, it's Tuesday and time for a TNT update - finally! I think it's been around 3 or 4 weeks since I last posted on a Tiny Needle Tuesday. Not that there is a huge update. There were weeks where I did not stitch at all. Thankfully that busyness seems to have eased a bit now.
I have not carved out any time to work on the Cacti Triptych, but I will plan to have an update on that next week. For now, we will just deal with the BIG sampler - "Sampler Aux Bouquets" by Jardin Prive. Here's a shot of how the entire piece looks right now:
And a close up showing what was recently stitched:
More of the flowers at the bottom - still more to add there as well as leaves. And the letters D, E and F were added yesterday afternoon. I'm on the last chart for this piece and really am nearing the end, though there is still a lot of stitching to be done. Luckily I am still enjoying it.
I want you to know that Mabel is back to her old self - racing around the yard, chasing leaves, catching mice and voles and zooming up the apple tree. Yesterday she and a deer were having sort of a stand off. LOL The deer had come up to within about 2 feet of Mabel and was just staring at her. Mabel stared right back (with eyes like slits and her ears laid back). After the deer wandered away, Mabel raced up the apple tree.
Well, time for me to dry my hair and get a bit motivated to do some things. Perhaps another cup of coffee first. Have a fabulous Tuesday!
