I feel like we got absolutely no winter here. Winters are usually unsatisfactory anyway (I want ALL THE SNOW and at LEAST a solid three months of icy temps, but I'm too far south in Missouri for that), but this time, we had a touch of ice, a few cold days, and that's it. I feel like Santa forgot to visit my house on Christmas Eve or something.
I think the Spring temperatures are giving me Spring Fever, too. I'm restless. I want to clean all the things, start all the projects, finish all the projects, travel around the world, climb the walls.... And I'm in a weird mental place where I want to talk to people, but I also want to be completely alone. I was deep in the throes of this last night, and I solved it by talking to my dog. He's a good listener and low maintenance company, so it was perfect.
Anyway, I've been stitching:
The project I took on my business trip this past week was Whimsical Advent Calendar by The Primitive Hare. I finished the front designs for the first 5 days:
"Relativity" is apparently Einstein's attempt to write "The Theory of Relativity for Dummies" back in the 1920s. :D It's not dumb enough for me, though, so I have been struggling with it. I switched to "Spooky Action" for a (haha) easier read. It's about a phenomenon that, basically, challenges the known laws of contemporary physics (i.e., the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics). The book has turned out to be a sort of mix of science philosophy and science history so far, and I'm really enjoying it.
Once I got home, I was itching to stitch, and finally realized that what I wanted was something bright!!! and happy!!! and cute!!! So I started this:
(Another blue linen! I know. The reason I'm stitching on blue linen so often is that last year I discovered Stash Unload on Facebook and went crazy buying all the pretty fabrics I saw...and it turned out that I'm particularly attracted to blue fabrics. LOL woops.)
Oh, also, here is a cat in a backpack. I saw him at the airport; his family was moving across country and this is how he traveled.
