as yet unbaptized continues

I wish I could have spent more time with this one today (but I spent most of the day picking computer cooties out of my main machine and am now trying to resuscitate my son's laptop.Guess I know where the trouble started).. It's coming to life stitch by stitch  but I think I'm starting to stop.

Those little dark green rectangles had to go and that patch of blue just demanded to participate. Keep reminding me that french knots, as design elements, should be left to the end, like beading - and don't remind me that I have about 15 pounds of beads in a tub somewhere in the studio.

Folks are starting to settle in for the Stupor Bowl - I may watch the commercials, then again, why suffer through a game I don't care for to watch commercials for products I won't buy. Jim just told me that the Who will be performing at half-time. I wonder if all of the hordes of CSI(insert city) fans know where their favorites shows theme music came from. Hoping for a medley....

(PS - Hurray for the underdog Saints, the Who and the Coke commercial with the Sleepwalker. )

is the blue climbing in, or clambering out? i see a real conversation here: left speaking to right, spring to winter

Lovely! The blue so punctuates this piece, and the details are wonderful!

LOVE the blue. My hubby watched the stupor bowl (I much prefer your word for it) - the BBC showed it live here in the UK, meaning he had to stay up till 3.30am. I did the sensible thing and went to bed...

Just think this is so fine! That little blue is right at home.

Your humor is a good fit to mine. "stupor bowl", but I am glad the Saints won for sure.

This is lovely. I like the subtlety of the colors and the little flash of blue!
