So the first Spring Roundel is stitched.
This may be my favorite of the three--that is, until I stitch another, and then it will be my favorite, and so on. I do enjoy the way Barbara Jackson uses mosaic stitch for texture, and, as always, I love her color choices.
And in other news, the office held my retirement party today. I do have five more working days ahead, but some of the people who wanted to be there will be out of the office next Friday.
I have to say, it was a little surreal. I told Baby Girl it was like being present at your own funeral. People say nice things, bring you flowers, and then everybody goes to a reception and eats. Baby Girl said that in effect, you're the dearly departed since you're departing from the work life, so maybe the analogy isn't totally creepy.
Dearly Beloved just told me that I am too weird for words and it's probably a good thing I'm retiring.
He's likely correct on both.
