Sanctuary, Socks, and Rain

It's rainy and dreary here today with a cold front ("cold" being relative since it's 75-80 F) and the outskirts of Tropical Depression Beryl, which the cold front is kindly pushing away.  So, not a great picture-taking day.  Like I need help taking a bad picture.

It doesn't seem like I have been working on this much, but apparently someone has since I am 3/4 done with this page.

A couple of hours work on Nature's Little Helper.

Spring Forward socks are done.  And Monkey is started.

Earlier, I had the front door open and as I walked through the hallway, I saw a little face peeking in at me through the glass.  I think someone wanted in where it was dry.  Unfortunately, he ran off before I could grab the camera and all I got was his escape.

And the last bit is I caved in the latest HAED 50% sale.  I nabbed Cute As A Button, Ariadne, and The Astronomer.  Then as an after thought, I also got QS Rain Dragon.  And I need more charts like I need another hole in the head.  :D

Happy stitching under the umbrella today,


  1. Hello

    Lovely WIPs and your socks are fab!

    You can never have too many charts!

    Lovely little squirell!

  2. Great progress! And the rainbow is really beginning to pop now! See you tomorrow!

  3. Great stitching! And I agree too many charts are never enough!

  4. Your WIP's look fantastic and I love the color you used for your socks! I caved too...I bought all 4 of the Winkler charts that were on my wishlist...I know I will never have time to stich all the charts I already have, but they sure are nice to look at! lol


  5. Oh the squirrel is so cute! =)
    I love your stitching and your socks are gorgeous. Reminds me that I should pay some attention to my socks-in-progress ;-)
    The charts you bought are wonderful, I'm glad people always show their charts when the sale is done, otherwise I would buy something ;-)
