Social Distancing vs Introvert

I don't care if it's social distancing or not I am and have always been and introvert.  I was so excited to wake up this morning and not have to go anywhere.  I actually slept in until 9:30 this morning.  Most weekends I'm up and have things to go and do.  The normal grocery store trip or errands or whatever Bill and I find to do.  He has been home from work since Wednesday because he started with the chills.  We decided that he would stay home just in case.  I have asthma so we aren't taking any chances.  Yes, I'm still going to work because we won't can't shut down.

Anyway,  since I was home I figured I do some crafting.  I was going to do some painting but I need rubber gloves for my finishing step and just ran out.  They are not a necessity so it will wait.  Instead I decided to pick up my wool, needle, and thread.  Lately I have been on a pineapple kick.  I have been looking for just the right wool for it and finally found it.  It just shipped, but until then I decided to try one with what I have on hand.  I recently had a Facebook friend give me a kitchen trash bag full of wool.  She was cleaning out her stash and thought I could use it.  So, I went digging today.

Ready to stitch.

I got this far and kept thinking it needed more.

So then I decided to add some "embroidery" stitching.  I'm still not done with it.  I think I want to add some red in a border.  I have some ideas I will try tomorrow.

Remember when I said I have been on a pineapple kick?   Same pattern but I hooked it instead.

Once I get my new wool I have a different pineapple shape I want to use.  If I'm home again next weekend I may get to do that too. LOL.
