Good morning! It's a fine Sunday morning in Olympic-land. People in this city are living in some kind of weird happy bubble, whether locals or visitors because the weather is so fine! (No, I'm not rubbing it in.)
For me, I try to avoid the crowds. My Olympic event yesterday was going to Michael's as they had a "20% off entire purchase" sale so I made a list of DMC floss for 10 projects and headed out. I got most of what I'd wanted which was a pleasant suprise. Then I sat in front of the TV and sorted!
Worthy of a Gold Medal, eh? ;-)
On the stitching front, I started a SAL with Jane on Be Kind and Be True, by With Thy Needle and Thread. Now, I'm fortunate that Jane is my partner as she is great with displaying her photos, artfully arranging them on her blog. The reasoning in my mind is I can always tell you "Mine looks just like Jane's! Go and look at her blog!" On the other hand, I know that my photos will pale by comparison to hers! ;-)
We are both starting from the bottom of the design. I am a bit more ahead of Jane's because she didn't stitch yesterday, but we are going to try and keep pace with each other.
I am stitching on a piece of 35 count HDF linen (no name). It is a bit more in the yellow-brown tones that the WDW Linen that Jane is using. This is a lovely stitch and I am really enjoying it.
Still quiet on the Nashville Market front, don't you think? I really want to get my hands on the Blackbird Design book!
I will leave you with some sunshine in a tulip to brighten your day and mine!
Thank you once again for stopping by. Your wonderful comments last time left me with big smiles! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
