Today was a really good day. I was a bit shocked to realize that Liesl and I had slept in until 8. It was another rainy day, so we kind of took our time getting up and moving about. I had a nice cup of tea, watched some cooking shows, and stitched. It was so nice. I did get my chores done, but I spent the better part of the day relaxing, reading and stitching. Liesl thought this was a splendid idea and just napped next to me all day.
It just poured today. In fact, as I write this, it is raining so hard that I can not hear my television. It is just coming down in torrents. I put off my errands that I have to do until tomorrow. Hopefully, the weather will have settled down by tomorrow.
But I digressed. I got to stitch for a while today. It was nice to sit with it raining outside, little snoring schnauzer next to me, a hot cocoa (made with 2% milk), and me stitching away. While Liesl and I were able to squeeze in a walk (two blocks from home, the skies opened up and poured on us!), we spent the rest of the day quietly indoors. I was so happy at 5pm to have Nascar start again for the season with the familiar, "Gentlemen, start your engines!"
This ME pattern is so sweet. I am thinking that it also would be so cute in a little frame. I was noticing that the pattern, although it is a kit, provides the DMC numbers, so I can make more in the future. It does look so cute. ME has a talent for picking really happy colors and combining them into a palette that is really bright and appealing.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
