A Little Night Garden

Little Stitches

The floss I ordered arrived, and I started on the leaves.

I'm using a 'new to me' stitch (and let's face it, everything is pretty new-to-me when it comes to embroidery) called the Fishbone stitch on the leaves. It is fun to work and looks good. Plus I'm learning something new, so I like that.

I really like the blue color on this one.

Movie night
Last night we watched the movie "Free Solo" about Alex Honnald who climbs rock walls without ropes. The documentary focuses on his attempts to climb El Cap in Yosemite. It was really interesting but it got a bit draggy toward the second half but picks up again at the end.

I don't even remember what I'm reading now. OK just checked--it is called "Park Avenue Summer" about a young woman who goes to work for Helen Gurley Brown when she takes over Cosmo. I've just started but we'll see how it goes. It seems to be a bit of 'Mad Men' in the mag industry which might be ok.

Weekend plans
Weed whacking and winding yarn. That's not bad.

Enjoy the weekend!

I was going to comment on the blue!

I thought "Free Solo" was amazing. And I am stomach-droppingly afraid of heights.

There are several different stitches on the night stichery kit--I like it.

Not sure I could watch Free Solo. I get dizzy standing on a footstool. I love how the embroidery is turning out. That blue really is great against the black background.

Free Solo was so interesting. How one climbs and risks ones life is beyond me. I have some yarn to wind as well!
