Passing Away The Time

Let's see, Buddy and me have been squirrel watching.


and bird watching.

Squirrel watching tires him out.

Enjoyed a yummy breakfast (or two or three) courtesy of Nurse Heather and indulged in yummy chocolate covered strawberries from my penpal Shirley from Connecticut.

I supervised while Heather cleaned and re-arranged furniture.   I mean, if you can't stitch,.....then what?    We created a little stitching vignette.

I decided to work on a wool applique table runner.   Stitching the blanket stitch for these pieces has provided me some stitching time.    Even with magnification I find I tire quickly from stitching. The pattern called for some lazy daisy flowers and stem stitching but I added the buttons instead.


I am enjoying watching the splendors of Mother Nature.  Now that is what Sky Blue Pink is.



Shadows and light --

I frogged a shawl I had knitted a few years back and started an infinity scarf with the yarn.   This has proved quite doable without the aid of glasses or magnification.

I have watched two seasons of Sherlock Holmes with Benedict Cumberbatch.  I am now a fan.  
















I also discovered I have Starz and have been watching The White Queen.   This is adapted from the Philippa Gregory series which I have read and loved.

The last two days I have had contractors on the roof interfering with my nap-time!    My entire house was circled in caution (rather - danger) tape.  They have been installing our solar panels.    Two inspections to go and I should be 'on the grid' in four weeks time.   I do look forward to watching the electric meter spin in reverse!

Hey Robin!
Great update. I am glad that you are resting and healing. You are still doing some wonderful projects and watching some great TV.
Wow on the solar panels!

Hi Robin: Love Buddy at the window, he looks so intense, the after picture of him in his bed is a hoot, he looks way to content.
Your heart is lovely I like the buttons, your stitches are so good I do blanket stitch and they are never the same size.
Solar panels sound interesting, we have covenants in the golf course neighborhood, we cannot even have a clothes
happy Stitching.
