I've been sick for the last week, but in typical "me" fashion, I've been plugging right along - in other words, not taking care of myself... Last night and today my body finally said - enough! So... I spent the entire day on the couch. I watched a bunch of stuff on the DVR, napped, and did a bit of cross-stitching.
I had company. Kitten spent most of the day with me, sleeping of course:
Although when I turned on a dog show, she watched it with me for a little while:
This was my project for the day, other than resting, my latest cross-stitch model horse saddle pad. These pictures are from my phone, which has a pretty crummy camera, The thread colors here are dark brown, black, cream, and a golden brown. The rest of this (that is white now) will be the dark brown color that is on top and bottom. I'll have to get a better picture of it! I think this will be a pretty one when it's done. It is the 5th so far that I've stitched on 18-count cloth. They take a lot longer than the 14-count, but I'm liking the results. I already have my next pad colors in mind. They are fun to make:
Now it's time for some soup!
