Peaceful Paradise

I've worked a little on Peaceful Paradise this week. After all the black writing, the little shots of color are especially fun to do. I'm working into a section below that's all color changes, and I'm looking forward to that.

I picked up this WIP and worked a bit on it also. It's an old Beatrix Potter kit I bought maybe 20 years ago. Unlike some projects after that amount of time, it doesn't feel dated to me, and I like it as much now, even if the subject is a bit childish for a grown woman to display.

Didn't Coke used to use the slogan, "The paws that refreshes?" This is Elvis compared to the size of a normal 12-ounce diet coke can. He didn't drink it, though; he's already hyper enough without the caffeine.

It's a cold and sunny Sunday here--perfect for a long cozy stitching session by the fire. BF has decided, however, that we should see a movie and go out for dinner. I really can't argue--it's nice that he wants to do that, even if I tend to be a bit of a hermit on the weekend. I'd love to stay home and curl up on the sofa with my stitching, knitting or a book though. Fortunately, tomorrow's a holiday for my firm, so I get another day off.

Your projects look very nice - I especially like the Beatrix Potter piece (I've always had a fondness for her illustrations). Your bunny is cute too!

I'm looking at the Beatrix to stitch for Jessica's baby room. We have to wait until we find out whether she's having a boy or girl, though. We should know this month...hopefully on the 4th of Feb. But, I think Beatrix Potter is timeless and for all of us, Glenna!
