I had a stitching weekend all planned out. I was going to try and finish up the stitching for Mermaids of the Deep Blue, since the last X of the left mermie went in on Friday night. I thought, surely 2 full days of stitching will take care of the right mermie, so I took a quick pic with the iPod before scrolling it up on the frame.
HAH!!!! I underestimated the pull of S. Florida's gorgeous fall weather. You see, except for the summer months, when I only go out when I absolutely have to (yes, I intensely dislike the hot weather and I live in SFL... that's the story for another day, hehehe), I love spending time sitting on the balcony or the front patio. Since I don't have a floor stand (yet), that means stitching is out of the question.
Where was hubby during this clean up craze? Well, he had to fix a leak in my toilet. *giggle* Apparently the filler whatchamacallit thingy decided that instead of just doing the mundane filling thing it was made for, it also wanted to be a fountain! It's now in the trash... how's that for initiative? ;)
Then, he worked on putting up a picture light for my TW Peacock Tapestry. I have always said that this piece is the one I am most proud of and the poor little thing has been hiding in the dark all this time. Last week, we found the perfect LED picture light at IKEA. He spliced the wire into a wall switch and VOILÁ!!! All weekend long, I kept turning on the switch just to look at it. LOL!!!!
So, at the end of the weekend, I am still left with the overlit mermie picture from Friday night. Maybe it will get some attention tonight...
