Some Weekend Dancing

GR&DF I do thank you all for the kind comments on Fridays post. It was such a nice day at the Beach that the snaps were easy to get.

It was a great weekend for many dancing moments - as I started to channel Martha Graham - slipping into my tightest leotard outfit (with the help of liberal applications of Crisco!!) and I started into gyrations that frighten fish!!..... here are some snaperoos of the reasons for the dance and not of me in the outfit or of my gyrations!!

.......Bada.......
....Bing!

.......Bada.....

....Boom!!

"The Garden Path" - by Sheepish Designs
36ct PTP Days Gone By (?), using my silk conversion
July 6, 2010 - November 11, 2010

I was so happy to have this piece finish - as I had held off finishing it to have a stitching piece to carry on my trip south. With that off my plate - I could do more dancing as I had another piece lined up to start.....

Another sampler, but which one?????
__________

... and... for more dancing I got to pick up some pieces I had framed....

These three smaller pieces I have had for a long time and thought they might add to the sampler wall... two by La-D-Da and my Fall Squirrel - they look super de duper!! Ignore the fact that the wall needs a coat of paint - I just hate thinking about that as we rent this sucker, but we just might have to break down and slap some paint on the walls at some point!!

This is a better snap of the wall o'sampler.

I think that will wrap it up for today - I will get to some commenting on comments tomorrow.


I wanted to leave you with a reminder from the Christmas Chihuahua that there are only 40 more days until Christmas..... You can tell from the Lolly-nator's face that she was just loving this damn hat!!!

Do stop back again soon!!!

Tale care,
edgar

I did wonder where this post would going and if I would need a coffee or gin before reading the whole thing through.
Thankfully I managed without and realised there would be no need for dose of spirits to deal with your channeling of Martha (a spirit of another kind) and wow: what a fantastic sampler. Looking great, I just with my fingers were as quick as yours!

The Garden Path finish is wonderful - I had thought you had stitched one little sheep in black but upon closer inspection I think it's the sheep dog! Your sampler wall is amazing and what can I say about the look on Lolly's face - I can almost hear her saying - come on - take the picture and then get this darn thing off my head!

Annemarie said...

Love to see how you have framed and hung you samplers. I really enjoy seeing them all together like that. I have way to many pieces stuck away.

Wow the silks look wonderful, and look at that band edge almost glows.

Kathy said...

Your new sampler finish is just gorgeous. And I love, love, love your sampler wall. But best of all is that photo of Miss Lolly!! It is just adorable. That expression on her face is a scream!

Daffycat said...

GOOD HEAVENS, Edgar! That is a gorgeous finish! *happy dance* Congratulations.

Your photo of Lolly has me giggling. She looks rather surprised to have her picture taken. Don't you just love candid shots?

Congrat on your sampler finish, the visual of your happiness is a bit unnerving!!!

Beth said...

Garden Path looks wonderful! And now I'm embarrassed at how long I've been working on the BOAF sampler you just started and already are ahead of me!

Sharon said...

Holy Shmoley! There is a whole lot of beautiful in these pictures! Your stitching is so lovely and your wall of stitching is better than any gallery!
As always, I love your lil Lolly! :)
(BTW, we always go to the Halifax Festival, it's always amazing, but this year it was the same week-end as our son's tennis tournament...bummer! See you next year?) :)

DonnaTN said...
