I watched quite a bit of the inauguration today and really didn't sense any excitement or hope for the future. I found the inaugural speech to be confrontational. I found it to be insulting to President Obama and marveled at how he kept a deadpan face throughout Trump's tirade. Inaugural speeches should promote unity, optimism, and hope for the future. The only good thing I can say is it was short.
Feeling like I needed to do something orderly and relaxing, I hauled out an easy hardanger project from the November 2007 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine. It was the Coral Island piece pictured on the cover.
I continue to search for a practical hardanger project. That is, something other than doilies. Hopefully with quite a few kloster blocks, a few dove's eyes, wrapped bars, and possibly some other fancy stitches.
