I am having a slow start to the month of March. I feel like February was a blitz of stitching and posting and March well, maybe I’m a little burnt out! Plus it is Lent and I do attempt to reduce my screen time and my indulgent hobby time in favor of more reflective and penitential activities. But I realize maybe some of you wonder where I have been and that’s part of it.
Also we were on Spring Break this week. We drove north to Flagstaff, Arizona, and to “Bearizona” which is a drive through wildlife park featuring, of course, black bears.
We saw their birds of prey show which was quite interesting and included this captive raised Great Horned Owl named George.
George is deaf so he is an exceptionally loud owl.
We continued our drive to the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. I have never been! It is hard to convey how enormous it is in a picture.
Then we trekked over to Carlsbad, CA to Legoland for the kids and that is always a great time. This is a lifesize elephant of Legos!
Overall that made about 20 hours in the car. Unfortunately I am not too good at stitching in the car because I get motion sick but I was able to get about half of my ornament done for the Ornies SAL. This is “A Star, A Star” by The Sunflower Seed from JCS 2008. I love this carol (Do You Hear What I Hear) and enjoy having the refrain reverberate around in my head while I’m stitching it. This is one of those projects I have planned to do for a LONG time so I’m really glad to have an excuse.
This weekend I’ll try to get to my other SAL projects and posts so expect a blitz next week!
