A TUESDAY REPORT FROM MASTER STEWEY ANGUS WILLOWSWAMP, HIS VERY LITTLE SELF
My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's in the closet, wondering why all of her clothings have suddenly become two sizes smaller than they were pre-holiday. (Do you want to tell her, or shall I?)
I'm afraid that there's not much to report today, especially since we're at the four day mark of the new year and my stupid mo-ther has yet to enact any of the life improvement ideas that she had for making this year the best ever. There has been no dieting, no homekeeping, no organic food buying, and not one bit of organized stitching activity. In short, 2001 seems to be on the same unproductive and stupefying path as 2010.
She has, however, completed another section of Stitchy Aunt Laura's Color Study: One Long Panel, and I have to say that she seems to be loving every moment of this one. The stitches are interesting and complex (*) and the layered effect of both smooth and sparkly threads has mo-ther transfixed beneath her stitchy lamp for hours and hours at a time. (This is a good thing.)
Snow is spitting from the sky and I am hoping that we will get some accumulation soon. It just doesn't seem like January when you can see the grass.
I hope that this finds you well and that your little corner of the world is warm and safe and dry. Thanks for all of your lovely and insightful comments...please do come again soon!
With love from your pal,
* Mo-ther wanted me to tell you that complex doesn't mean impossible. The chart and instructions are wonderful, so even if you're a beginner (or a nincompoop like Mo-ther), you will be able to stitch this without one bit of trouble.
