First off, I want to thank you for your kind comments and encouragement while I go through this bumpy patch of work?no-work? Oh, there's more and I'll tell you in a minute. Second, even with making little progress on my stitching, I appreciate that I have new followers almost every day. I scratch my head a bit but I do appreciate your interest!
So, no stitching was had at my house this past week. However, I did work A LOT (at my job) so I had the good fortune to bring home this little mouse to my house! Meet Little Ted, my cross stitch mouse!
I love how his little left shoulder is holding the needle and floss. Actually,doesn't he look like he's doing the boogie-woogie? He's so gorgeous. Here are a couple of more photos.
Little Ted comes from the house of "Mouse Droppings", from the hands of Mama Susan! You can see more (and better) photos on Susan's blog. I just love him! Thank you, Susan!
Now, I will show you some watercolour from the book that Little Ted is sitting on in one of the photos above. The book was something someone donated at the library and I got it for 50 cents. It was without a jacket. It's called The Doyle Diary, published in 1978. I haven't read the story but I just liked the illustrations.
The style of illustration is "old-fashioned", isn't it? I don't think we see much like that anymore. I just love it though!
So, work - you'll laugh at this as that's all I can do. I found out that I may be cut from the project due to budget reviews. Ahhh, well, if you are scratching your heads, I can't blame you. I will just "go with the flow" and see what happens. I have been working a lot and will again this afternoon. I'll work while I can, and stitch when I can.
It's time change today. I loathe losing the one hour. It takes my body at least one week to adjust to it. Before I go down the path of griping, I'd better end this post! ;-) Thank you for visiting and be careful driving tomorrow - the day after time change, statistically, there are more accidents!
