Sydney was obsessing (that’s definitely another post someday) about something in the yard yesterday and was totally ignoring my efforts to call her inside. So, as I went traipsing out to see what was going on I was surprised by a lovely red rose. The bush had bloomed beautifully early in the summer and then stopped showing any signs of buds at all for well over a month.
This unexpected beauty now sits on my stitching table. What a nice surprise!
The Traveling Woman was soaked and blocked yesterday afternoon. It still seems a little damp, so I’m going to leave it for a while longer. I use fishing line and a few pins to hold the top of the shawls. My intent was to keep all the edges straight without points. But I just couldn’t seem to get the fishing line to work. Maybe it’s time to break down and purchase wires. Better pictures when it’s unpinned.
Have a great day!
