Stitching Heals the Body

I swear it! I’ve been sick as a dog the last few days and really barely had the energy to do much more than watch River Monsters and Murder She Wrote. Man do I love that River Monsters! Lots of pretty locations and Jeremy Wade seems to be a pretty good narrator and storyteller. Besides that, it gives me a really good place to point out reasons #2-100 why I won’t get into any water other than a swimming pool and bathtub.

Reason number one? Jaws.

And Jessica in Murder She Wrote? Well, what can I say? It’s a brilliant show and I’m so glad that my mother introduced me to it. What I really love is that it’s a mystery show I don’t have to pay really close attention to. Unlike Criminal Minds. Though, God I love Spencer and Rossi. Great looking men. Yes.

But what about the title of this little post? Well, the other thing I sat and did while watching Jeremy and Jessica was stitching.  Lots and lots of stitching.

Ok, I skipped a day. But I was pretty darn exhausted. You can't blame me! More yellow.

You may be wondering why it is such a weird shape... Well, I'll explain that!

As you can see, that patch of yellow has really grown and grown and grown! I’m getting a little sick of the color… but I suppose I have to keep going if I want to get back to that pretty orange. Or start a new one. Here’s how I work. Perhaps it’s because I’m used to working with fewer pages, but I generally work page by page. See that straight line in the middle? That’s the edge of a page.

See? all the highlighting is what is done. I had progress today too!

I'm sort of working in the red circle I think... I'm pretty sure...

And so, I hope to post some pictures to DeviantArt once I actually get some recognizable progress… I mean, seriously, it still looks like a scary blob of yellow with a bit of orange floating about in the middle. We’ll see how far I get tonight. Maybe I’ll finish the top of the yellow and start working down the other side…

Bye Bye Yellow.
