The wind is blowing again today, filling the air with sand that irritates eyes and lungs, and grits in your teeth. Back in the 1940s when the nearby Hanford project was in full swing, the wind would kick up like this and the people would line up to quit their job and get out of here, thus "termination winds". I can understand why many left this area as I just hate the wind. My children, who were all raised here, absolutely love the wind! Well, it's a good thing for them, as wind is a force we have to deal with, especially this time of year. I tend to hunker down in my house and watch the trees waving their branches at me - it's quite hypnotic! Now that I have older children who can drive, I can send one of them out to run errands when the wind is blowing, but I'm not so lucky this morning as she is at school. Thursday is one of my busy mornings ferrying kids around, so I put on my jacket, squint my eyes, and hurry in and out of my SUV as quickly as I can before I get a headache. So far, so good.
Well, stitching progress has been a little slow this week, but I have been working on Star of Wonder, and "P".
Just have to finish up the sheep and I'll be done with this little ornament that I've been doing with the stitchers at FGBB.
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on this "P"! I am really loving this floss too, it's great fun stitching with it.
I can't close without saying another big "Thank You" to Anne S. for passing along the chart and leftover threads of M Designs "Thistle Treasure Bag". Ever since my sister and I visited Scotland together, I've had a thing for thistle designs, and this little bag will scratch that itch!
