I stitched some last night while we attempted to watch The Great Ziegfeld (next on our Academy Award list). Unfortunately, the disk got to about an hour into the film and quit. So, we’ll have to wait for a replacement disk. Today I have been nursing a migraine, so no stitching. I have spent a little time reading my Elizabeth Peters book (Lion in the Valley), which is all about Egypt and Amelia Peabody’s adventures whilst she and her husband excavate the bent pyramid. I took a break from reading and we went over to the Kimbell Art Museum to see their newest exhibit on Hatshepsut (the queen who named herself pharaoh).
It was an excellent exhibit and I am glad we went. The exhibit officially opens tomorrow, but they had a members-only preview today. This was our version of whetting our appetite for our trip to see the King Tut exhibit next month.
And when we arrived home, the mailman had brought me the newest Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers – Garden of Life. This is a beautiful design, and the colors are so pretty!
Sorry about the flash. This looks like it will be a lot of fun to stitch. Well, we are off to dinner for Mexican food (my favorite!). Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
I am grateful for my love and appreciation of art and history.
