Good Day! Good Day!

Today's writery thought is that Joe tells me that Billy "sucks executive dick"

There is no answer for that (yet) but Billy says executives have better taste - or was that "executives taste better"?

In other news, brain is being good and I have done many interesting and productive things today like changing the bird, washing up and framing some cross-stitch. It's a sampler that says "I only stitch on days ending Y" but I haven't got a photograph yet.

(don't worry, there will be a cross stitch pictures catchup shortly)

If anybody saw the mock-up newspaper but didn't have the super-vision to read it, the details of Joseph's extra-curricular activities is:

MacDonald High School Science Centre in Arson Blaze.

Principal fears high school vendetta behind devastating incident. Police questioning local youth, 15. Sources identify him as Joseph Mulgrew, Debate Team Captain, who won Local Shield with “High School is not High School: Why Drugs Mess With You and Your Grades” Prize student had previously staged “sit-in” protest against cream corn and was favorite for Student Politician

You likey? Me likey. There is a reason for this. And plot. And it gets weirder.

Cross Stitch Time! My current WIP is a little ambitious - Angel of Love

I have a deep and juvenile wish to write that as Angel of Lurve, which I am far too mature to actually type.

Newbies - buzzy is a cross-stitch nut. Expect posts. I have some catching up to do.

This pattern is called "Angel of Love" by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum of Lavender and Lace. It is something close to seventeen inches long, which is the size of my biggest frame.

It also is going to have 3000 tiny little beads on it. It never occurred to me to check the list on Marilyn's website so here am I, with enough beads to buy something better than Manhattan Island. I like beading, whether I like it once I've finished is another matter.

Currently, I am working on the Angel's skirt which is where most of the beads and metallic thread is. The designer helpfully points out Since the skirt of this angel is 90% beads and rich metallic threads, I consider the completion of this angel to be an act of love.

It's all very exciting (if you like embroidery) and (if you don't like embroidery) I share my enthusiasm with everyone. You might want to hide now...
