Second Mushroom Girl

Almost all of her stitching was finished yesterday which left me beads and backstitch this morning. It could have been worse. I easily found where I had tucked the beads and tracked down the same chocolate colored silk that I used for backstitching on the previous Mushroom Girl

So here she is in all of her pink&red colors and beaded glory. 

Having less sense that usual, I decided that I really needed an Owl. So here is the start (38%) on You Got This by The ArtsyHousewife. The fabric is the remainder of the Autumn whatever that I used on the Haunted Clock I showed you a few days ago.

I didn’t even bother to look for any of the called for fancy floss, just went for the DMC substitution. Then thought about it and pulled out three Threadworxs for the blues, 2/3 for the browns, and something or other instead of 3865. I have maybe 40 stitches left on the Owl followed by the rest of the coffee mug and some plants curving up to frame the piece yet to stitch…

Obviously, I didn’t go anywhere or see anyone other that family!

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
