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.
