This has been a fraught week, with little stitching but with much studying, since school will be wrapping up in a couple of weeks. I spent the entire weekend working on a paper (an in depth analysis of accounting fraud at AIG with respect to offshore accounts and finite risk insurance--don't you wish you were me?) and didn't so much as pick up a needle. So tonight I'm cranky, but because I finished the paper, I'm going to go stitch in just a moment. What I did accomplish was a little stitching on the Christmas ornament by Blackberry Lane Designs. I'm working it over one on 32 count cashel (I think) with DMC. I like the linen, because it's just stiff enough. And I love the design.
We did have a dandelion party. I groomed the garden bed (yay for planting perennials last year--the ultimate timesaver is to have your garden grow its own flowers and not have to go buy more and plant 'em) and plucked out the dandelions for the bunnies, who generally adore them, and had a little party.
Discovery. Pink: Woooo! Par-tay!
Pink: Look! I know a trick! I can pull the tablecloth out from under the food without breaking a wine glass!
Peaches: What wine glass? There's wine? Oh! Maybe dandelion wine!
Pink: Ok, now that the dandelions are gone, we'll eat the tablecloth!
Happy week ahead, and don't eat the tablecloth!
