I'm glad it's Friday!

It has been a crazy week! Yesterday afternoon I had a doctor appointment and I was there for two hours! Geeze! I stopped on my way home at JoAnn's to get some outdoors thread for the new cover I need to make to replace the one the puppy destroyed. I guess right the color! When I got home the samples of the new vinyl fabric for the cover had arrived and the thread color match was spot on. Now I need to order 6 yards of the vinyl.
Wanda had asked me how my transplanted ornamental grass was coming along. It was spitting rain a bit, but I walked over and got a picture of it. It is bent over because I think it is reaching for sunlight. Here is what the fence line looked when I planted them and how it looks now
I had been working on my Friday night cross stitch project during the week this week. I just couldn't set it down. I changed the design just a bit. I put smaller hearts at the upper right and left sides, and instead of a heart above the bird I put a tiny skull. I would have put the year, but I was down to my last bit of floss to finish the skull. That thread at the right is all I had left of one skein I had bought of a hand dyed floss. My sister thinks she has some of that floss so she will look when she gets home. I need one strand about 10" to put the date on and I am not even sure where I would even stitch the year. I will have to think about that.
Have a great weekend! I won't be going anywhere on Saturday since all the streets will be blocked with the marathon. They run right thru where I live so traffic becomes a nightmare.

wow, that's cutting it close on the floss. I like the skull that you swapped for the heart....a little surprise.

Your grass is doing great along the fence line. That is a perfect place for it for a little privacy (or not having to see what is on the other side of the fence).

That skull is a fantastic substitution - just gives things a nice edge. The grasses make a very elegant line, don't they?
