THAT'S BETTER

Aunt Chrissy vetoed the multi-colored approach because a) she knows me and knows that I was hoping for a monotonal look, and b) she knows color and saw that the warm threads were clashing with the cool tones of the linen.

So I'm in the Happy Chair, happily stitching away....a roast is roasting in the crock pot ( or crock potting in the crock pot), and Crocket and Tubbs are getting the bad guys off the streets of Miami.

What can I say?  Don Johnson always did blow my skirt up, and what's not to love about 80's music and tight white t-shirts?

Happy Sunday!

  1. Happy New Year to you all! I like the tone on tone motif better - it's soft yet refined. Enjoy yourself!

  14. Yes! monotone!!! As to the 80s, it depends on the music & who's wearing the tight white t-shirt. Love "Meatloaf", but don't want to see him in the t-shirt!
