Since we ended up not going to Baton Rouge, I kept Bryce Eleanor until a little after 1:00 this afternoon before returning her to her parents. Came home and straightened up a little, read, and...took a short nap!
Tonight I got started on the new embroidery piece of healing symbols. Symbols have always fascinated me, and I have two hefty books on symbols that I used when teaching literature--heavily highlighted and annotated with literary connections. The symbols I used in this piece are stylized reiki healing symbols--which I find interesting, especially the snake and spiral ones.There are two rows of coral stitches in a variegated perle cotton, then some metallic gold has been laced through the first one.
I've also begun reading Resolute, a historical account of the various endeavors to discover the Northwest Passage. Fascinating so far. After reading The Terror, a novel about the Franklin Expedition, I became quite interesting in the search for the Northwest Passage and the mysterious disappearance of the Franklin Expedition --both ships, the Erebus and the Terror--simply gone along with their crews, despite all of the rescue missions mounted. Another book on the subject and on my wish list is Frozen in Time, which I'll see if I can get on interlibrary loan.
Have some eyes pinned on the sock monster, but I'm not sure if they are what I'll end up using.
