Sunday Stitching

After all the work outside, it was time to come inside and just sit. I filled up the sink with dishes and plopped myself into the recliner for some stitching. Stitch until the piece of thread I'm using is done with, do a load of dishes. I nodded off a couple of times in the 2 hours I spent stitching. Hard work and being out in the fresh air and sunshine will do that. Plus, I had ears to scratch. It was warm yesterday so I brought up the box fan from the basement and put it in the living room. The pedestal fan stayed up here in the back room so I hauled that out and turned it on to blow air down the hallway.

It didn't work. That's my go-to fan. I find the pedestal fan works best at keeping the air circulated simply because it's off the ground. I really was not happy at the thought of having to buy a know what? Electric fans work really well if they are plugged in. The pedestal fan had been on an extension cord which was unplugged from the fan. I didn't realize that when I moved the fan. Plug it in and it works perfectly.

The girls and I enjoyed sitting in the living room with a breeze from the fan. I got the rest of the sky filled half-way with color. It should be clear what the design is now. I have to finish the other half of the sky, details on the Eiffel Tower and the grass at the bottom. I really like how this turned out and I have plenty of time to get it framed for Christmas giving.

Beverage:  African Rooibos tea
