I guess I am really getting old. While trying to relieve some of my "stash-buying withdrawal" I was looking through all the folders, notebooks and plastics sleeves I have filled with charts friends have sent to me. In the back of a very old brown folder I found this beauty. I am pretty sure it is from Jean, who I met through Cyberstitchers. She is very fond of owls. The only thing is, there is only this lovely photo and no chart. Have I lost the chart? Sent it on to someone else? Was it just a photo sent to me as inspiration? I do not know. Jean if you are out there ( I'll send you an embarrassing e-mail to confirm my stupidity also) can you explain this one. It really is a beautiful design. Any one of the animals individually would make a nice ornament.
Just hooked on the computer today for some reason. Maybe it is because I know my days are numbered as to how much "me time" I have left this week. Oh well, the marathon weekend looming ahead will make up for past Friday's snow day and next Friday's Easter holiday days off from work. Somehow it will even out and I may even come out ahead financially on this one.
Here is my latest Easter wishful thinking idea. This cake looks great, and not too difficult to make. I am the choco-holic in this house, so Joe would appreciate something of an alternative flavor. I watched a very interesting show on The Food Network last night about making corn beef. I wanted to try it for St. Patrick's Day, but the first step was "prepare brine and spice solution and soak brisket for 10 days". Oh well, another year shot on that one. It's all moving too quickly....everything except this pitiful dial-up connection.
Maybe I'll be back to post again tonight..................
