A little too tired to stitch much today

I don't know if it was just because of being awake so early yesterday, or because I almost fell yesterday morning at the McDonald's on the way to Stitch N Stuff--I wrenched both of my knees and my thigh muscles hurt, but I stupidly didn't complain to the manager that if the friggin floor is wet from rain, it really is not enough to put a well-hidden sign that states caution wet floor where one can't see it and then falls--but I have not been in the mood to stitch.
I have been working on Mom's Halloween night today. It's a really fast stitch, which is why it's a good choice for me today. I am really enjoying the way the colors fall together, that beautiful rich purple against the gold and the orange. These are not colors that I would have necessarily put together if I were designing, but since I see them together I think they are STUNNING. I did tell my mom that this was not a pillow to get dirty or wet, though, it would be ruined.

Hi Rachel - thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about missing pics. I think I fixed it - can you check? TIA.

OK, just realized it wasn't you who caught it. My bad!

I can't wait to see this done! Who's it by and what's the name of the pattern?
Sorry about the fall, hope you're not that sore today!

Oh wow! What kind of material is that Rachel????

There are days when complicated or thinking takes too much and simple or little thought makes more sense ;o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
