Weekend update

I was cruising blogs this morning before stitching, and found a reminder from Anna about a stitching challenge. I agreed to this and forgot about it. Found the image of the pattern a few days ago on my computer and thought I’d already missed it. I haven’t! Yay! So I’ll add it to my stitching rotation after the blogoversary stuff is done.

BoInk – you can see that my “fix” will work! I’m a little giddy. Not as much as I was Sunday evening when I finished that “foot”, but still. I may cheat and start a motif tomorrow. I think I’ve earned it.

Blackwork ornament – I’m playing with texture and thread plies. And yes, I’m making a one-sided ornament – I have several scraps of purple fabric that will make a nice back.
Do I have anything else to show? I don’t think so. So I’ll just show you all a picture from the baseball game from my trip to Seattle – a Ken Griffey, Jr. double. Gorgeous. And I can’t believe I caught it. Digitally 🙂

And a pic from our trip to the zoo on Thursday – this tortoise was hanging out next to his (her?) pool and looked up when I said “Hi, Tortoise!” (I will admit that may have been a coincidence.) So I got a great shot over the fence.

  1. Two well timed shots from your trip.

    Blackwork has always intrigued me. Doubt I'll ever get round to doing any, so I'll be interested to watch how you get on with it.
