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.
