June YOTA SAL Update



Hi Blogger Friends.  Its time to post our YOTA (year of the acronym).  It is being hosted by Pull the Other Thread and you can read about it HERE.

Finish #12

 The Library
Little House Needleworks
14ct Beige Aida
Started 2-18-10
Finished 5-31-13

I am so excited.  My next YOTA project is Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.  This was started 2-4-12 and never touched again.  If its as much fun as the Stable I may not stitch on anything else.

I have to tell you another story.  I was sitting out front last night about 8:15.  Dead silence.  No birds chirping, no kids playing, nothing.  I hear clop, clop, clop.  I'm just staring across the street at my neighbors yard.  Here comes a huge doe - walks across the grass - across the walkway - onto the grass and squats and starts doing her thing.  Two more deer walk up behind her and stop.  I haven't moved or made a sound and she snaps her head to the left and just stares at me.  She was in that position for about 2 - 3 minutes.  She finishes and they walk down the driveway and hop the fence into the field and off they go.  Now I tell you, I have lived up here for 43 years and have seen my fair share of deer.  BUT, this is the first time I have seen one squatting.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Kind of glad you matured before the age of film everything you see with your phone. Because I've got enough of a visual, thanks! ;) Nice finish. Love the sentiment.
