I finished up Day 10 on Arthemise's Just Nan RR. I just love the colors in it. I decided to go ahead and start another block, since she has so many empty ones. Although I really wanted to stitch 8 Maids-a-Milking, I decided to opt for Day 1, since I'll be signing both blocks I don't think it would look as good with both right next to each other. So, the partridge is making an appearance.
Not much else going on stitching-wise, but have you seen the new Mirabilia, Mermaid of Atlantis? Gorgeous. I love mermaids, of course, and this one is a stunner. I've already pre-ordered her. It makes me want to get to stitching on Mermaids of the Deep Blue soon (not that I don't have several other projects on the go already!!).
Thank you all so much for your comments on my biscornu. I really enjoyed stitching it, and I did find it amusing that several of us decided to stitch Martina's designs for the exchange! I haven't seen any photos of anyone else stitching Manuela's Sunflowers, so I thought it was kind of fun to maybe be one of the first.
And Christine asked if I would recommend seeing Wicked - absolutely! The reason we had our tickets so far in advance is because when it was here last year, it sold out almost immediately. After that first set of shows sold out, they began selling tickets for this year ...so that's why we had our tickets for so long. If you've read the book (and if you haven't, go read it, it's great), the musical follows the same general storyline, but is not as dark, you might say. It's quite funny and the sets are great. I'll probably be picking up the soundtrack this weekend.
So that's all the news from here in Tornado Alley...it's been an interesting couple of weeks with all the storms and tornados touching down. Hope a house doesn't fall on me...
Walk to Rivendell: Pippin realizes it is the Stock-brook. The banks are low enough now for them to cross. The land on its south bank is wet and reedy. They reach a belt of trees, mostly oaks with a few elms and ash. Drops of rain fall. (Total Miles Walked: 50!!)
I am grateful for a wonderful life.
