Work was exceptionally quiet today so I was able to spend a good portion of the day stitching. My FCC is indeed proving to be a quick stitch. I'm really enjoying this piece in that I don't have to change threads or think a whole lot while doing it. It's a nice change of pace. I love the little birds and cats that are incorporated within the larger cat. However because it's such a quick stitch I'm getting that itch already! I've been going through my stash tonight looking for another small take-along piece. I've found a celtic knotwork heart that looks interesting as well as the summer heart freebie from Passione Ricamo. I wouldn't need to buy any threads for the celtic piece since it could all be done in one colour. I have quite a few Six Strand Sweets that I could pick from for this one. Think I might be leaning in this direction! My mind is gearing towards vacation and I don't really want to do anything challenging right now. It's nice to have something simple to stitch dockside at the cottage. I have the next two days off work so I'm hoping to tackle my Fairy wings again tomorrow. Wish me luck!
It turned out to be quite a nice evening considering all the rain we had most of the day. Bob and I decided to have our coffee in the gazebo after supper. The rain brought out the mosquitoes though and I ended up dousing myself in repellant. Usually we don't have many inside the gazebo but someone left the screens unzipped allowing all our bloodthirsty friends in! No pointing of fingers though 'cause it was probably me!! I'm starting to get a headache from the smell of the repellant now that I'm indoors. It smells like I bathed in it!! So at this point I will head off to the shower to remove it.
