The Ides are almost here:
|Ides of March cloth|
I promised myself that my Ideas of March would be done by the 15th and so it is.
Details of the cloth:

Most of the stitching is running stitch and the back split stitch.
I have to post my last fascicle pieces, 3-5. I'll work on that this week. Maybe do a silent Sunday post of nothing but images. I've prepared a few other cloths for the coming month and working of a little gifting project for a birthday. But my other pressing need is:
|Here today, boro tomorrow!|
I have to get better at posting...I am going to get better. Even though it's time to get the gardening going for 2012 I will, I will.
and in conclusion to remind us all:
Julius Caesar Act 1, scene 2, 15–19
And as Spring is here I bid you all to celebrate Lupercalia as well. It is the festival of purification. It is named for the she wolf that nursed Romulus and Remus. Young men would run through the street sans clothing and women would have their palms slapped (unclear if by the naked young fellows) to either ensure a safe delivery if pregnant or become pregnant if barren. Oh how simple those Arcadian days!
Cheers and thank you for partaking in celebrating the Ides...
