After finishing the chickens, I've been working on "The Ark"...with any luck I'll be able to finish when I get home from Job #2 tonight! I meant to get "Labyrinth" out for DH, but it is so humid and sticky here, having all that fabric in my lap/hands just sounds gross. I'll stick with the project that fits on my scroll rods for now.
In other news, I bought the the latest issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine, the one with the ornament preview. I was less than impressed. I think there were 1 or 2 that I *might* stitch, but nothing incredibly unique or interesting. (If you are curious, my picks are Casey Buonaugurio's "Red Penguin" and Elizabeth Talledo's "Santa's Sleigh Ride." The two reindeer designs are runners-up.) And I was REALLY unimpressed with the rest of the patterns in this issue - usually I can find something I like enough to put in my "maybe" pile, but not this time. Too many flowers...a farm scene...religious verses...a patriotic teapot?? Blech. Maybe I'm going through a phase...or maybe the designers are...but not much I'm seeing lately makes me care about stitching.
