Red sunrise

A shock of red sky
starts an overcast Sunday
Waiting for the sun
 
I just love the morning and evening skies...they can change in a blink of an eye. I have joined a new SAL...from The Snowflower Diaries. I am deciding on the fabric...I am hoping to get more stitching on Singing Bird today.
 

One side finished except for the heart which I will stitch on later. I really like this piece of linen...from who knows where and what. It is a fairly quick stitch so today should be the day for the next piece. This has been in my pattern collection for about a year or so...why did I wait to do it? I love the colors and of course it has beads......
and lavender threads. I am using DMC threads. I need to get a piece of Buckram for my bell pull, I will get that tomorrow after I drop Mr H off at PT. I am still deciding on what to do about a hanger. Gee, my New Year has started off pretty busy. I am now in count down until The Brother Alan arrives on the 27th. I look forward to his yearly visits. This is the first time he will be coming in the "winter", however, it is still nothing like his New England winters. Our weather has been a little cool. We have some tentative plans but we go with the day kind of plans. My stomach is telling me I need to provide it with food, so I guess I will say thank you for visiting with me. I am so lucky to count you as my friend...have a great day.

I am so tempted by the Snowflower SAL, Jacquie has done the first one already and it looks lovely.

Your Singing Bird does too.
