Tiny needle work
This one is coming along a bit slowly, because I chose to do lots of satin stitch, but it is looking good. As I've mentioned before, I love these mandalas.
We sometimes forget that we can drive two minutes to the beach, but yesterday I remembered that and went down to Cape Kiwanda. I wanted to take some photos to have more inspiration for sketching (yes, I'm sketching this summer; no, you can't see them because they suck).
First, I stopped by the Post Office and this was parked behind it.
Then I went down to the Cape and saw a dory come in. They stop by just gunning up on the beach until they stop. They blast loud horns when they're coming in so people can get out of the way because once they hit the sand there's probably no controlling them.
Then I wandered across the street from the beach behind the Inn at Cape Kiwanda. I had oyster crackers in my bag and rabbits to find. I found them.
Two wild rabbits. The top one was very friendly and eager to have crackers, the bottom one was more standoffish.
I started "The Marriage Plot" by Jeffrey Eugenides and don't know why I have always had such a negative reaction to the thought of him as an author. I really like this book, which was published in 2011, so I'm way behind the times. I think I tried to read "Middlesex" and didn't like it, but not sure.
Enjoy Wednesday! We are to have another drizzly one.
