However, I was home while I had daylight to stitch by, and I got five of the critters on the first two panels of "Can't See the Forest" stitched.
I was hoping to finish another tree, but I don't think it will happen tonight. I stayed up very late last night finishing one of the Sebastian St. Cyr mysteries (by C.S. Harris and I highly recommend the series but you really need to read them in order) because I figured I could sleep in this morning.
A neighbor's car alarm went off before 7 a.m. Then it went off again. Then again.
The lawn service arrived to cut the grass in the community. They started with my cul-de-sac. Under my window.
The phone rang with a call from someone wanting Anthony. I explained it was a wrong number. The phone rang again, still with someone wanting Anthony. I said sorry, still a wrong number. The third time I let the answering machine pick it up. At that point I was awake and was not going back to sleep, it was clear.
And now it's barely after 8 p.m. in my time zone but I am totally cross-eyed. So I am putting down the needle before I make a horrible error over one thread that will require painful reverse stitching.
