Baseball!


Sixteen days until Opening Day! I've don't bother watching the few spring training games that are broadcast on TV - the commentators seem to be so bored that they will yatter on about anything but what's happening on the field.

I dashed out of the office last night and forgot to take the current WIP off my cube wall. Unless I decide to start something new, there won't be any stitching at all this weekend which might not be a bad idea.
It's 'sposed to be sunny and 70 outside today. Sweetie took her first foray out of the house yesterday while Colin and I watched over her....just a few minutes around the front steps. While I was at work, she helped herself out the cat door and was staring in at Jim from the back deck demanding to be let in!

What size is this?

Reminds me of our Rothko discussion way back when. Are you going to leave it so beautifull plain?

"Fenway Park" is a tidy 12"x12". those little cross stitches are a hair more than 1/8th inch, all eyeballed of course.

Yes, this piece goes back to a whole series I did called "Rothkos Puppies".

The center piece of green has cool history. My aunt had a hunting lodge near Flint, Michigan. When she passed and the property was sold, I was given a box of cotton sheets that had been custom made for The Lodge...all since gone into the dyepots and various pieces of work. I can always pick out the high thread count but crude weave compared to modern cottons. Wonderful to sleep under and loved the dyes.
