It took me all week to get this far, but here is my first CItA update. I am using the jewel-tone version of it. I think it's gorgeous.
I sat back this morning and thought, "Now that, Rachel, is a gorgeous piece of cross stitch." It's very different from my usual subject choices, but I'm always up for a challenge. And this is a challenge.
I am leaving the beading til the end. I am stitching this on a hoop and I don't want to crush the beads. Hopefully I can see straight.
We had a bit of a tease this morning. I woke up around 7, and there was the distinctive rumble of thunder going over the house. Our yard is so dry, and my flowers look so pitiful--the poor petunia has nearly given up the ghost--that any rain would be welcome. It was so loud that I brought the dog in, I thought we would get dumped on. No go with the rain. Acckkkk.
Oh, well . . .
