I came thiiiiiiisss close to finishing Winter last night, but my eyes just would not cooperate. I came home from the d-chair and had a snack and a nap and then sat down to stitch and did so for a few hours, but those last few stitches will have to be plied today:
The love of my life follows and enjoys professional wrestling.
(Pause for a chuckle as you think to yourself "I wonder what Stewey would have to say about this little development?")
The truth of the matter is that wrestling was something that Rich and his son (also Rich) enjoyed together. Apparently, son Rich texted dad Rich to let him know that Shaquille O'Neal would be making an appearance, so the 76ers had to do their thing against Utah for a few minutes without my JB hollering at them to rebound and then shoot the bleepity bleeping ball.
Yup...it's all sports all the time around here, but I don't complain. My eyesight is such these days that I have to stitch with naked eyeballs, which means I can't watch the TV, so I stitch happily away and listen.
To baseball, basketball, football, cricket, soccer, tennis, golf, sailing, horse racing, and any other thing he wants to watch.
In other happy news, I did finish the background on the Mill Hill Snowflake in the d-chair yesterday. This means that I can try to finish the stitching on the third Winter Woods piece tomorrow!
We are in the midst of some gorgeous weather here in Hoosierville, and the sun is out and shining away. I am itching to get out onto the golf course, but need to bide my time a bit longer until my second shot has been administered and gone into effect, I think.
It's March, so that means green nails:
Oh well...can't please 'em all, I guess.
(She was teasing me, by the way. Marcella is actually one of us...a fellow stitcher and from Columbia. She is getting ready to start a gorgeous Dimensions kit of flowers in Mason jars, and I can't wait to see her progress!)
Wow. I've just bent your ear for eleventy seven days, Dearies! Sorry about that! I guess I was just so excited to have a little energy today that I had to come tell you all about it!
