I figured I really should be working on Mermaid Heaven today, but decided instead to put some more time in on Celtic Winter. I can sense this one is close to finishing now, and I would love to free up more space in my rotation. I stitched a lot of grey today. I found out that you really need one full skein of DMC 169 to stitch Celtic Winter on 28 ct. I have a piece about four inches long left and it is only one ply. I am super conservative with my floss, and still only this tad bit left. I may have missed some of the "S" symbols and may end up needing to break into a second skein. Just some info if you are also stitching this project.
While out running errands today, Mike bought me a new stitching magazine :-) This one looks pretty good. There are actually a couple of appealing projects in this issue... whether or not I will stitch them, I don't know... but fun, nonetheless.
Well, tonight the spring like temps are tumbling and snow is forecasted for Monday... and cold temps for the upcoming week. We all know this is because Mike took his Corvette out of storage. My guess is that it will go back into storage tomorrow!!
Can you see my face?? When I went upstairs tonight to try to take a better photo of Celtic Winter, I noticed our black persian, Angus, was sleeping in one of the recliners in our living room. It is pretty tough to find his face, isn't it?? (Yep, we are those sorry type of folks who put sheets and throws over our good furniture when there is no company here! Heck, two of our cats - Angus and Ava - love to destroy furniture with their claws - sigh)...
