a nose-thumbing stone

 I sat down yesterday to stitch on a stone.  I pulled the lovely turquoise merino out of my stash and intended to use subdued shades of white and grey, reflecting the weather outside my window.  I had icicles in mind and a cup of tea by my side.

Instead, it seemed my subconscious was thumbing its nose at our grey weather and I reached for bright orange, yellow, and green instead.  I have something close to a circus stone going on with those colors.  I kept asking myself "where am I going with this?".  I still have some more stitching to do so we'll see how it ends up.
