Ants always remind me of these verses from Proverbs:
Go to the ant, thou sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer,
and gathereth her food in the harvest.
I spend my summers scurrying around trying to get as much done as possible--in ant-like fashion--so I decided to add the phrase, "Go to the ant, consider her ways and be wise" to the border of this design. I stitched this on a scrap of what I think is PTP Sand, using Caron Wildflowers Black Forest and Cardinal.
Speaking of being busy, I'm still working on my big sewing room rearrange. My work time has been pretty hit or miss because Mr. Wonderful has been on leave, and y'all know, it's hard to get stuff done in the house with a hubster under foot. The major part of the project is done, and I'm now down to those odds and ends that seem like small tasks, but that always end up taking nearly as much time as the big stuff. We had to cancel our trip to North Carolina because of Hurricane Florence, but we've rescheduled it for November, the tail end of hurricane season... and before blizzard season.
My head is swimming with thinking of all the stitching, finishing, and framing I want to do when I get the sewing room done. My goal is to have it done by the beginning of October. Wish me luck and stay tuned!
