We have a chance of snow in our forecast for today and tomorrow. Yikes! I'm done with snow. Why isn't mother nature?

You can see I have a new start - it's a freebie from Pelin Tezer called Moire. I'm doing it in HDF called Magpie Tears - all six of them. :-) It's a small piece less than 5" b 5" complete. I only have two colors to go after the one I'm working on now.

And here is my progress on Book of Ink Circles - part two. I'm going to continue to work on the outline of part one as time permits. But I'm not worried about getting to far ahead and the last time I tried to get far ahead I made a counting error and had to frog out what felt like hundreds of stitches.

This is a short work week for me - I took off Thursday, Friday and Monday. On Friday Clancy and I have an agility trial. I can't wait. I love agility trials. :-)

I've been working really hard at fixing everything the cement contractors messed up when they put in the new patio. I'm almost finished with the brick walkway in front of the patio. What back breaking work that is. Of every do-it-myself project I have ever taken on, doing brickwork is the worst. And this is the second time I've had to do this in two years. :-( Next up is fixing the lawn. Hopefully I will finish the walkway on Thursday.

Your new start is so pretty. Pelin's designs are the best!

I was blown away when I saw Moire on your blog. I stitched the same design in Jan/Feb in blues also, but a bit brighter because they needed to match the box I mounted it on (can't believe we had the same idea about mounting it on a box!) I do love the subtlety of the colors you chose - do you mind telling me more about the fibers? What is HDF? and is Magpie Tears a line or a color? Thanks, brdstitcher @ gmail dot com
