It is cooler today. I didn't wear shorts as it was cold. There is a touch of fall in the air.
I managed to lose a tomato between here and the Farmer's Market. I don't know what happened to it. I just know that I can't find it. Dang. It was for cutting up on our turkey burgers on Monday. Oh, well.
I got the needle weaving done on one side of Ebony and Ivory.
I started the other two rows just to see what it is going to look like. I need to start the needle weaving on the other side of the middle band now. I want to cut the other pieces of linen and be ready to start some of the smalls.
Then I worked on the hard side of the mermaid's shell.
I made some progress even though it doesn't look like it. I want to start at an entirely different place today, the bottom of the shell - and see how far I get.
I feel like I need a break from these two projects. I want to start something new. I know I shouldn't. We'll see how long I can resist!
I got my Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue in the mail.
I have always thought that subscribers should get it as soon as (or even before) shops get it in. I think that is happening now. That's good. I looked through the issue and see several things I'd like to make. I have a soft spot for Pat Thode's santas. I really like the one in this issue ( it is the one to the right of where is says "all skill levels") although I think I'll leave out the tree.
