Progress and continuing adventures with Missy

Good Monday to you, gentle reader.   I hope you had a productively peaceful weekend.  I did somewhat respectably all things considered.  There was laundry (which even got mostly put away), and audio booking, and stitching!  Yay.  It's the little things.

Ethel came out to play for several rows of sky--- once I get some more sky in I feel like I'll be able to work on the various floral elements.  So far I have not gotten sick of blue.  If I feel that coming on I am going to switch to working on the flowers/balls in the grass to give myself some variety.  Do you get like that?  Just have to move to some other color or stitch because something is too boring for words?   [And, yes, i know Ethel is upside down.  That's how I was working on her, so it's how she got her picture taken so now if I flip it it looks totally wrong to me.]

Here's my new start from the weekend before last -- Amanda Lawford's "lovey dovey"--- I'm ignoring that title since I was raised by a pigeon fancier I know that this is not a dove.  this is a fantail.   The dark dots get crystals.  This guy is part of a series of 4 rhinstoned beauties -- a cardinal (also started), a blue jay, and a chickadee.

And to catch up on another episode of the Spokane life of my and Missy---

The WSFS banner was flying with pride over the past Hugo Award display.

Missy got a photo op with this year's Hugo award/

She also got to meet celebrity costumes --

Missy got to see preparations underway in Riverfront Park for the Chinese Lantern Festival.  She was vexed that she couldn't sit on the fence and have her picture taken with these beauties because there were giant signs saying the fence was electrified.  Little furry bear + electric fence = sizzling unhappiness.

She was mollified when I took her to the What's coming out from TOR panel.  You should see her new shopping list!

Bear hugs from Missy and kind thoughts for your day from me.  Thanks for stopping in.
