Good afternoon . . . I hope you're all enjoying the first summer weekend of the year. In ultra-typical New York City fashion, summer arrived -- wham-o! Overnight. After a very cool spring, we're looking at 100-degree days this week.
Remember the days when we used to put away our summer/winter clothes? Not anymore. You just have to keep your Gore Tex hip-length parka next to the tank tops with the spaghetti straps . . . and dress accordingly.
I did a wee bit of stitching this weekend . . . nothing major. Just a handful stars, which seemed appropriate this Memorial Day Weekend. Do you find yourself reaching for "patriotic" stitching projects during national holidays?
We managed to see a few ships that sailed into the harbor during Fleet Week. The ship that captured hearts is this one we spotted from our rooftop. The USS New York (above -- click photo to enlarge) was commissioned into service in 2009. It was forged from tons of steel recovered from the wreckage of the World Trade Center.
Is there a floss that color? If so, surely it must be called Battleship Gray!
As you spend this day with your families and friends, I wish you a peaceful Memorial Day. Thank you for remembering the many men and women who have served our country. Warm hugs to you all.
