Robin is right. It was a wonderful day here in Memphis. My stitching station affords me the pleasure of looking out into our backyard. The daffodils are coming up around this garden figure made by my Mother-in-law. Isn't it sweet?
I got a lot done today. And still managed to get my husband to take me out for dinner. I worked the bottom border. This is another case of "ignore the painted canvas". It is a fun and easy area to stitch. I used a size 26 Bohin tapestry needle to stitch the green corners so as not to open the holes to much. Then I worked on the green background that houses the geckos. I will make spiders tomorrow.
Below you will see my helpers. I don't know if they are just sunning under the Daylight lamp or really interested in what I am doing. On the left is Joel and on the right is Ethan (I believe you have met Ethan before). They are named after the film makers, Joel and Ethan Cohen. Sometimes Joel sticks his paw down to where I am stitching. Ethan just sits and blinks his eyes. They are otherwise known as "the boys".
