She has to wear a sock, of all things! She is not happy. The other day I discovered that one of the pads on her foot was very red and irritated. It looked like she scraped it on something. It was bleeding, so after a little clean-up and some neosporin, I grabbed one of my socks and on it went. And to add to the indignity, each time she goes outside we have to slip a plastic bag over her foot with a rubberband to keep the sock dry. Sensitive soul that she is, she actually went into a funk for a day or two. However, she has now come to terms with the whole thing. Sort of. She is like an elephant, though, she never forgets – which is why I am on the receiving end of that stare.
Aren’t these the most scrumptious colors? I went to Michael’s yesterday to look for a bigger hoop (couldn’t find one,) a needle threader (found it and it has saved my eyes and my patience!) and some more floss. They are so beautiful, I just had to take a picture.
I’m having so much fun on this embroidery stitchalong! To tell you the truth, I have not been motivated to quilt or knit in a long while. I did a lot of piecing when I was in San Diego last year. And I’ve picked up my knitting many times – knit a couple of rows – and then ignored it for weeks on end. This embroidery is so portable. I can pick it up any time and stitch a little square or two. Each of the colors of floss in the photo were about 30 cents each – much less expensive than yarn or fabric. I wouldn’t mind embroidering a pattern but I really like the free form style of embroidery. Okay. On to Square #7:
Have a wonderful Sunday. Ours promises to be sunny and in the low 50’s! Does this mean that Spring is on the way?
