I guess you could say I'm being a little slow these days. I am completely overtaken (is that a word?) by two of my projects. Truly I had forgot how much fun a Marty Bell could be. The Chaplain's Garden is coming along so well. Confetti stitches everywhere but I can really see where it is going now. And anxious to get started on it's mate.
And Le Marquoir is fantastic, too. I started it in the colors called for but frogged them all out and changed to brighter colors. Well, of all things, I went to a funeral at Our Lady of Mercy last week and spent a great deal of time noticing things. There was a banner to the left of the altar and the colors were magnificent. And the green on the kneelers is the same one I picked. Then I realized they were all the colors I was using on the Marquoir. I came home, loaded Google, searched liturgical colors and how amazing! I was instinctively using those colors. The only one I had not included was rose. It's going to be there now! It's really a beautiful piece.
We're watching the Gulf of Mexico now. Two trifling little storms there now and one biggy which looks like it's going up the Eastern Seaboard. But once they get started.........And I shouldn't say trifling because that's the best way to get a surprise-like Katrina.
