Good Afternoon Everyone, and hello from HHH Pennsylvania. Guess we are really in the summer mode now. Yesterday we had almost 2.5" of rain in 20 minutes!! And, 12 miles away at my office not a drop. I've started my 4 day weekend thanks to my office being closed today and tomorrow for the move (across the street to another office complex). So many things being thrown out and replaced! I was able to snag two wing back chairs that will look great in my son's & girlfriend's apartment in Pittsburgh -- they will be perfect by the fireplace.
Meanwhile, thanks to having the day off the Leopard is now stitched. My friend Carol who named the Parrot "Petunia" has also named the Leopard "Lenora." She is a beauty. Here is an overall shot of where the sampler is this afternoon as well as a close up of Lenora:
The cream color on Lenora's belly is so close to the color of fabric I am stitching on (same color as Petunia's feet).
Not sure where I will go next on this chart...I may start the ground beneath Lenora as there is SO MUCH of that to stitch...I may go back to the top right and start on the gorgeous, huge red flower, I may go to the right of Lenora and start outlining the lion (whom my husband has already named -- this time the creature will be a male).
Another day off tomorrow is a gift! I plan to visit my Dad and go for a walk with him (he's 93 and still going to parks to walk, etc.) and then out to lunch. Hopefully more stitching time and perhaps a nap (I do love to nap).
Hoping everyone is enjoying the summer (or winter depending on your hemisphere) and finding plenty of time to put needle and thread to fabric.
