Happy Daylight Saving Time all and if you are as cranky as I am about it, check and see if your state legislature has a bill pending to remove the twice-yearly time change. Mine does - it seems like we get this going on every year and we've yet to have one pass - which means its probably time to send some nastygrams to the Capitol Building and demand that they pass it this time around.
In case you're wondering what your hours of daylight would look like without DST, here's a really interesting article on the topic: Here's How Daylight Saving Time Affects Your Part of the Country by Michele Debczak
I personally would have happily done away with it years ago, but now that I've got a toddler who already doesn't sleep well, I'm even more militant about the need to abolish such an archaic and hazardous practice. For example, did you know that the number of car accidents skyrockets in the week following a time change?
Okay, give me a second to put my soapbox away... hang on...
Alrighty. On to the more interesting topics. For your viewing please, Tiger Chilling Out. This is an older picture but one that I hadn't remembered to share before now (I think). I'll be pulling this one out for this week's homework on my School of Magical Stitches SAL. The task is was to stitch on something with claws, because Buckbeak has claws. I'm hoping to polish off the tiger and make some headway on the half-stitches in the water this week.
The other half of the homework was to stitch something in brown, for the chocolate used to help heal from Dementor attacks, so I was able to actually start Hogwarts in a Bottle and I got quite a lot done!
I am however, excited to hopefully fill on some of the other colors later this week so that it actually starts looking like something other than brown blobs.
Its been a month of "New Starts" as I was also able to tie the Camelot Sample into last week's homework and make a decent start on it. I wish I could show you the thread list for this (I won't, because of copyright). The colors and blends take up 1.5 three-column pages. It's a doozy and it doesn't look like much now but I think it'll be stunning once I fill it in a bit.
I'd love to drop by your blog or Instagram and say hi, so please leave me a link in the comments if you are so inclined.
