As February Comes to a Close


I watched TV - "The Academy Awards" and stitched away last night!
It was a nice evening.  I'm famous for watching only one movie or so a year, this year the movie happened to be "The King's Speech", so I rooted for Colin Firth. I stitched away until the program awarded the top three Oscars and that took my full attention.


As the Oscars came to a close, a storm began to move in.  Lots and lots of wind - gusting to 40 mph.  Now the rain has come and it is a quintessential Oregon day.  Gray, with lashes of rain - pounding on the roof and hitting the windows - strangely I find it comforting - cocooning weather!  It does not appear to bother the critters - I counted several Quail and three Gray
Squirrels.  

Sometimes the feeders are even more active than usual during inclement weather.

At least there is enough for everyone!

This was a quick stitch... I wish I could do that while watching TV too. Though I watched The Oscars too last night, I was cleaning our bedroom at the same time.... but it was a good night!

Great stitching! And the Oscars is the perfect time to get some stitching in. You can raise and lower your head without missing too much.
