In the best of weeks, Monday’s are never my favorite.
For some, there is lightness, brightness, and the promise of excitement up ahead. For me, unfortunately, this week, there is a list longer than my arm of all that I need to accomplish. Some of it has to do with getting mailing supplies so that I can get packages off in the mail. And, while I am so busy complaining, I might as well add – it seems when I need a box, Amazon as well as everyone else is busy tossing everything in plastic bags. When I need a bag, it is only boxes..
Some of it has to do with cleaning, never my favorite on the best of days. And the last of it has to do with DMC 310 – aka black. It is one thing to use it for outlining, and another thing when some bright and brilliant (cough, cough) cross stitch designer seems to believe that about a thousand stitch werewolf is needed as one of the monsters in a piece. I still need to fill in his nose and mouth so that he doesn’t look so weird as well as some ground. And the rest of his body – more black
It was a bit more fun adding a few stitches to the Cat & the Cook..
and the January Quaker is complete – the balance of non-black.
