When searching for a quick little project to keep me going up in the study I came across this pink little beauty. It's a bit washed out here and is much pinker in real life. It's a bit closer to it's real colour in this post.
Now that it is finished this little cross stitch is destined to go onto the front of a grocery bag/ shopping tote. It should make a bright splash sat on some navy blue!
Is there any more PINK out there?
I spent the evening up in the study with Hunney and when I had finished the Cherry blossom I pulled out my poor neglected Floral Trio and worked for an hour on that. I finished that leaf peeking out the top there and started on the last petal.
I don't know if I'll keep going with this or if I'll start on something else, once I'm done with the clematis. If you remember the third flower is a hydrangea, it looks picky, with lots of colour changes and I have another project lined up asking to be cross stitched, I'll see how I feel once I finish this flower.
Yesterday and today are supposed to be days off work, relaxing days! Note I say supposed. Yesterday I had two appointments in the afternoon. They were close enough together to make it a waste of time coming back into town between them, but far enough apart that I had over an hour to kill. As it was dry I went for a walk. I didn't take the camera as I had my book in my bag, thinking I may sit in the park and read, but it was too cold for that. I covered a lot of ground and did lots of zigging and zagging to fill in the time. Today will also be interrupted. I have to be at work at 2pm for a meeting, though I should be home for 4pm.
Am I the only one who gets antsy when quality stitching time is invaded?
Yesterday I saw Maria for the first time since before Christmas. I think it went OK, I feel like I didn't shut up for the whole hour and felt wrung out when I left, though today I couldn't tell you what we talked about. I think I'll leave that stuff alone today.
1) Cold DRY days.
2) Another little finish.
3) All the decorations are put away.
