QUEASY LIKE A SUNDAY MORNING

I  made a lot of progress on Royal Gardens last night during a seven hour marathon of Game of Thrones.

The light yellow centers of those "crescent with tail" stitches are all woven!

I started to go a bit sideways on my colors last night and wondered if the whole thing is going to look like one big fat mess, but then I decided that I will just pretend this piece is a tribute to Prince and I moved on.

See?  Lemons to lemonade in one fell swoop!  Who knew that it could be so easy?

(But, isn't it interesting how we can look at one of our stitchy pieces or see a book that we've read and remember exactly where we were at the time?  I think I love that feeling...like there is something out there in the universe to remember our stories for us.)

Good Grief, Charlie Brown!  So much philosophising on a Sunday!

"Mo-ther, put down that iPad and fetch me my tea and toast, please.    Nothing good comes from you spending time thinking about things rather that catering to my every whim."

  10. Your stitching is beautiful-the only stitch I know is the x so I am in awe! It is so true that stitching is tied to memories and can bring them back with a rush.
