This morning dawned snowy even though they swore up and down we weren't getting snow until this evening. Guess what? It's raining now. So they were wrong and wronger. Of course, I also woke up with a sore throat and scratchy voice. I've done nothing all day and still had to take a nap at 2:00.
Thank you for all your kind words about the marquoir. As promised, I did turn to Dimple's Designs' St. Basil's Cathedral. Unfortunately, my neighbor came over to work on a project with the dude and I talked his ear off instead of stitching. (Don't look too closely. Those yucky stitches have some sort of blending thread in them. Which thus far only serves to make my stitches look like crap.)
Today I am practicing my French...knots that is. I'm going back to Teresa Layman's mermaid which I haven't worked on since 2009.
*This is the dude's motto for 2011. Thus the neighbor helping on the project.
