Whistle stop in the next couple of weeks. Happy stitching!

So today, while sitting in my kitchen with my cup of coffee, a little visitor appears. It's been really hot and by the looks he thought so too. He took a few minutes to rest and then went on his way. I'm thinking I may just have to make a hooking of him. The diagonal of the railing will make for a good composition, I'm thinking. Hmm.

Saturday was a raining day here, 4" of rain, not just a sprinkle. As I sat and had my morning coffee I was thinking about what still life designs I could come up with. I originally was thinking about fruits and vegetables. But then I realized that we had little in the refrigerator. I was not about to go grocery shopping in the pouring rain. We'll just make do with what is in the pantry. As I sat with my cup of coffee and my bowl of cereal, there's always cereal and milk in our house, I thought why not what is right in front of me. That is how "Black coffee with sugar please" came about. I sketched up a design but then had to put it aside for some other things that needed getting done. Sunday came and I pulled out my design, fiddled with it a bit, and then got it transferred to my linen backing. I did a bit of the hooking but then had to go do other things. I got back to it this morning and made good progress. I'm not done yet but got a really good amount done. Progress for now...
