In the next picture, the right hand leaf is a problem. I stitched it in the color marked on the chart, but when I looked at the picture on the cover, I saw the fill in color is actually a light green. I have yet to decide whether to frog it out and redo it or not. Sigh.
I got distracted by the ant and the little critter on the right side. Don't you love them? I ended up stitching away on the right side because of the cuteness, and then continued on until I decided I'd better catch up on the left side. Jane was nice to me -- the two sides, although similar, aren't exact copies of each other. Yay!
In other news, my father type gave me some wonderful presents for Mother's Day. He vacuumed and mopped the house for me! Yay! And he also gave me some flowers.
If you're wondering about the plastic, it's because there was a freeze warning last night, and there will be another tonight. Poor father type. Anyway, these spaces on our front porch are usually empty and nonplanted -- neither the father type nor I are gardener types. Last year, the areas ended up with long grass in them -- not exactly attractive! Well, I asked the father type if he could get rid of whatever weeds or grass might be growing in them this year, and he did this! He told me to come out to the porch to see his handywork, and there were the petunias. Unbeknownst to him, petunias remind me of my mother, who used to plant petunias on our front porch when I was small. So it was a nice way to remember my mother. (It's been almost 30 years since she passed away.) There's also a hanging basket with what we think are also petunias, but I neglected to take a picture of it. Hopefully the flowers will survive the cold tonight.
I hope everyone who celebrated Mother's Day yesterday had a good one. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I always enjoy reading your comments. Have a great week!
