(I've had a lot of questions about Grocery Guild. It's not really called that...it is officially the South Bend evening meeting of EGA. We just happen to meet in the upstairs lounge area of our local supermarket...thus Grocery Guild.)
(Our local supermarket chain is quite lovely. Most of the stores are decked out with Side Door Deli areas that have grab and go meals, a Starbucks, and a "restaurant" area. The store that hosts our meeting has a two story "restaurant" area and we meet there once a month. Next to my Happy Chair and the Centre Township branch of the library, it's one of the happiest places on the planet Earth for this here spinster.)
So I finished the two leaves on the bottom of my canvas and moved on to the purple leaf in the lower right corner:
I really love working with silk ribbon, it turns out, and after last night's excellent class at Guild, I now know how to lock the ribbon onto the needle so that it doesn't slip through the eye with every single stitch! What a difference that made to last night's efforts!
In addition to being hepped up on the caffeine, I also fell head first into my latest library book, and I ended up turning out the light at 3:30 am. I'm reading Richard Russo's "Nobody's Fool" and am enjoying it immensely. I have "Everybody's Fool" lined up to go right after, so looks like I will get to spend a fair amount of time with Sully and Co.
That's the exciting report for today, kids. A little progress on a needlepoint canvas and a caffeine hangover. All we need now is a few loads of laundry and an afternoon nap, and Futzingday will be complete!
Hope you're more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed than I am today....WooHoo!
