Frog, frog, frog

Yesterday on the train home, I was almost finished with the outline of the basket on Sunflower Charms when I found a counting error. So out it all came! :-) Normally with so many stitches in, I would find a way to compensate but it wasn't working in this case at all. But I fixed it and I like the way it looks now. I'll be starting on the border today. I can feel this one almost done.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do next but I don't think it will be a Blackbird Design as I don't have any kited up right now. I have the linen for Flee Market Souvenir but only a couple of fibers needed. I have the chart for With My Needle but no supplies. I just ordered Trix or Treat and Autumn Bouquet from SB&B but of course it's back ordered so who knows when I'll receive it. Maybe another Drawn Thread? I have all four the season arbors. They were partial kits so I have all the fibers - I just need the linen - all different shades of wichelt - twilight blue, lavender mist, natural and antique tan. I've also got a couple of freebies that are in my stash and I have linen and fibers for all of them also from my stash. I think that's what I'll do next as my small project. STASH IS GOOD! :-)

I'm not sure if I'm liking working on two pieces at the same time. I feel like I'm only giving each half of my care - that's not the case of course but it does feel funny. I'll just have to get used to it because I'm not schleping my Village on the train. It's just way to big and I can see my linen getting stained. I can finally see some progress on block 12. Maybe tonight after I finish the tombstone I'm working on, I'll start the tree to the left of the block. That will really add some progress.

Now today's puzzle:

You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed. On your right side is a sharp drop off, and on your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you. Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo and your horse is unable to overtake it. Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the Kangaroo. What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

GET YOUR drunk butt off the merry-go-round!

Sunflower Charms is looking lovely!

I'm switching back to VoHRH tomorrow and I hope to make some progress - there's a lot of green in my block and it feels neverending LOL!

Beautiful! I don't think I've seen a WIP of Block 12 yet, I can't wait to get to it now. :)
