At last, the fun of doing design. While I would be the first to admit that areas of basketweaved background can be immensely soothing, I am also the first to agitate for something pretty to stitch to break the monotony and keep my interest. First, I stitched all of the seaweed.
The British Open (golf) is this weekend. I intend to get up early to watch, but since they tee off about 4 a.m., that may be over-optimism on my part! It's amazing how good a pillow feels that early in the morning. However, I feel that a "push" is necessary, because my pace seems to have slowed the last 3 weeks. I am serious about being finished by August 1.
Mentioning watching golf reminds me of how often I have stitched to sporting events. I can often point to an item in the shop and recall what game or sport I happened to be watching during its stitching. And of course I have now added "blog stitched" to some things. Ah, the modern era arrives at Needle Nicely.
