This is a Debbie Draper Design freebie I have pulled from my freebie drawer in the studio to stitch with Crescent Colors Blue Lagoon Belle Soie. This is for a RAK. I can't remember where I got this freebie but I think it was put into my bag at a Pigeon Forge cross stitch store at one time. I think. I pulled this fat quarter from my cabinet to back a pillowkeep for it. I think it goes well together. Monochromatic. Silk. 32 ct linen.
It's just been a little bit of a blue week. I can't pinpoint it so much but life ebbs and flows and as I stitch this today watching the US start another war, it's just plain crazy.
That's just my opinion though and you know what opinions are worth. ;)
So the tension of it may be a little tight as I wonder why the President went on vacation the day he announces military action in Lybia. We are in 3 wars now? How do you enjoy a vacation or even the First Lady enjoy vacation while major disasters influencing the US and starting a war are going on ? Wha?
A Pentagon briefing this afternoon without our Commander -in-Chief? Wha?
I can't explain it. I have to digress here or I'll start a whole page of thoughts...LOL
And I bought something blue this week, well first is the chihauhau book mark. I had to go to Petsmart for Miss Abigail and randomly saw this really-cool book mark which reminded me of Ren actually and it came home with me.
Ren used to hold his paw like this and this little one also has a longer nose like he had. Abbie has a short little nose but this really brought back some memories with Ren.
I won this on Ebay, for 5 bucks. Looks like an old pair of Ginghers, never used and they are beautiful.
I have no idea how old these are but the box itself is cardboard and Gingher is on the top.
I know now they are in metal tins.
But for 5 bucks, I think I did good!
Back to blue stitching.
They just announced US has started missiles now.
