I have started a winter hat and am using oatmeal colored yarn and some Lambspride in dark red. I may be changing needles soon, because I think I Went down too much and the yarn is hard on my hands at this rate.
I love the way this photo turned out. How Did I achieve this magnificence? Well, you must have a husband who simpy will NOT stop for photos very often. THis means you have to click on the fly. THe way the smoke and farmers’ dust from harvest were in the sky, really gave this a spooky look. I love it. It is undoctored and just shot like sepia.. LOve when that happens.!
So many of my blog pals are very good at stitching. These framed samplers are on sale at a off site auction this weekend. I’m not sure how I feel about this. Ond hand , if you wanted samplers, lucky you. THey are going for next to nothing. On the other hand someone worked so hard on this part of their creativity. It is almost insulting to see them sent off. What do you thini? Ive have a mind to rescue one…..
Then this blue Turkey , in glass showed up at the auction. Do I need a blue Turkey? I don’t think so. He’s a beautiful TOM as my Nana would say.
If you have not seen the Barkely Marathons on you tube, or some available channel, it is a wild movie. I highly recomment it. AL’s trying to get me to watch Shits Creek starting at season 3. She says, just figure it out from there.
Amy Beth, the Fat squirrel Speaks podcaster, spent a ton of time on her latest podcast on quiilting. Val and Nancy and Deb, I thought of all of you. She gives a lot of information , so It was not quite what I go to her podcasts for but she is so enjoyable to listen to , I didnt mind. She’s talking about making a quilted car jacket in a really cool shape! You may like it
She listens to a podcast called Almost Amish and Im’ going to give it a try.
FInally, I had something happen to me yesterday that made me feel good. I had asked for more addresses to help get out the vote, and they sent me more. Of the 20 I said I could get done by tomorrow, one of them had a Burnham Court Address in Texas. My mom and Dads house just sold …on Burnham Court in Illinois. I saw it as a sign from my mom. ALso , we heard an interview in Oklahoma, where someone said,
“donkey years ago”. My Grandma, My irish nana used to say that! She too has been present in obvious ways this week.
Ok. KNitting today. 1) Getting my leaf Cape back from Local LYS that didnt sell. 2)Keeping all Windows open and getting in the sun for perhaps a last time this season …..before it goes into the 60s. 3)Talking to my kiddos. 4) sunset paddle????
