Much time has been spent in the last week or so trying to come up with an interesting, uplifting bit of a post to put up here. It's evident my brain cells have not been up to the task.
I do believe the general blogging atmosphere is in a slump right now, and I can't help but think it's because of the political atmosphere, both here in the U.S. and worldwide, that is affecting our daily thoughts, actions and plans for the future.
Yep, the X-stitching bug is still with me. The current project is an Easter motif piece which I've just barely started. "Happy Easter" in the center surrounded by bunnies, carrots, flowers, etc.
In the works is a new rag rug for in front of the kitchen sink made in dark blue to go with my blue and white January decorations. Good choice I made to use dark blue rather than white, eh? (Tongue firmly held in cheek.)
The first sock of the latest pair for Papa Pea is almost done. Because Mr. Big Foot needs big socks for his big feet, I wasn't sure this particular skein had enough yardage so chose to make the cuff, heel and toe of the contrasting gray color.
Today I'm determined to sandwich and start the quilting on this couch quilt that has been shaming me for months by hanging on my design wall in its unfinished state. I'll machine quilt it with an all-over meandering design. I think. But I could change my mind. But probably won't.
