For almost two weeks now the Tri-Cities has been buried in a sea of cold, gray clouds as an inversion has stalled over the area. Temperatures stay about the same day and night, the gray skies never vary. When an inversion lasts this long, almost everyone's mood is affected, mine in particular. There's just no substitute for sunshine. Perhaps a storm in the Pacific will move our way soon and blow out the stagnant air. I'm hoping so.
Of course, there are bright spots inside, like finishing this little ornament by Scandinavian Stitches (2008 JCS Ornament issue) called Norwegian Reindeer.
And while we watched the last dvd of 24-Season 3 last night, I made up another kumihimo braid, this time using #8 perle coton and gold Treasure Braid.
I plan to continue experimenting with this technique with various fibers from my stash. It's a little easier to pay attention to fast-moving plot lines while braiding than stitching. :D
Has anyone with a Gmail account tried their video chat? My dd and I have been using it for the last month or so and we love it. It's such fun to see and talk with the grandchildren, see what they are working on or have Hans read to me. It was so easy to set up, Mystie and I just started experimenting one day and in no time we were in business. My computer doesn't have a built-in camera, since it's now quite ancient, so DH bought me an add-on for Christmas. I feel sorry for the grandkids looking at nana sometimes. :D
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. I do appreciate your spending some time with me, and especially your comments!
