Yep, I cross stitched a clock or rather the inside of a clock.
This was such fun. Taking the clock apart and inserting the fabric was not as much fun but I love how it turned out. This is intended for the Arizona house as it is all in blues.
The free design came from leblogdecathy.canalblog.com and is stitched on 28 count antique white evenweave. You can see a different color version on my BFF's Beatrice blog.
I received a gorgeous set of Fair and Squares from Susan P. for the latest Fair and Square round.
And "The Lovelorn Sisterhood" is finished and ready for mailing tomorrow. This was a fun stitch and caused much laughter and many comments every time I worked on it while I was waiting in someone's office. I picked out a lovely green fabric with some flowers and pots yesterday to make this into a pillow.
DH and I made a trek to Ottawa to celebrate our friend Richard's 60th birthday and visited them at their lovely summer home on Clayton Lake. The wildlife there was amazing. If you have never seen a baby loon floating on it's mother's back, it is just the sweetest ever.
And here is a photo of the little one taking swimming lessons with Mom and Dad hovering around.
Richard did not put his boat in the water while we were there as there were two little robins in a nest by the tongue of the boat. I tried to take a photo but the mother kept swooping at me. And to our surprise and delight, as we were leaving the last day, we met a doe and her newborn fawn on the road. They were gone in a flash but what a treat to see them. Mother nature has indeed been busy.
Dani is coming Thursday to visit for three days while DH is off male bonding. I am looking forward to her visit and she and I will have those needles singing. We will also have some of the stitching ladies come by over those three days so there should be lots of laughter and lots of stitches.
