Hooting Away

It's day 4 of Ramadan here, and I think my body is finally getting used to not eating for 15+ hours. I'm not as groggy and achy as I was the first two days, and I actually have the energy to clean and cook and live life semi-normally. I'm so glad I took this month off work, though. I cannot imagine having the patience to teach right now.

Anyway, I have been making progress on Hoot. Really loving this project. I thought it was going to be a quick stitch, but there are so many little details on it, so many color changes, that it's taking me a while to stitch it up. That's okay, though - anything to distract me from food!

So I've now stitched half of this front side. I added the grass, the trees, the pumpkins, and the owls. I keep forgetting to mention, I'm stitching this with three strands over two, just for that extra coverage. I tend to do this with biscornus.

Only a few days left for the 4th July traveling pattern! You can sign up here.

Have some pie for me, please!
