Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - OMGoodness when I opened up my gmails I was astounded at your kind thoughts for me and my "under the weather day." I was feeling "puny" (as my granny would say) all weekend and we pretty much stayed close to home. Now on to today - I turned 48....
What's so odd is that for the past few days I had really thought I was turning 49 - I am such a ding sometimes.... walking around in a total haze. Then this morning I thought I can't be 49 I have to be 48 and so I hauled out all my fingers and toes for the recount..... darned if the numbers and years (year?) just fell away like last years ratty hairpiece!!! So, now I have two more years in my 40's until I click over to my 50's. In fact I never think of how old I am or am I getting old as it is so irrelevant to my life - its a number that will not stop going up so who cares!! I have never understood those folks that are so completely obsessed with the year and time moving forward that they forget that this little bit of time we are given is for living and not brooding!!
I am going to keep it shortish today - and only show the stitching I got done on "Harvest Blessing" -
I am really enjoying this piece but the 28 ct linen is so "open" woven and using two strand of floss feels very clunky. But, this will look great in the frame I have for it, so 28 ct it is to be the size I need! Notice that cow? Lower left - kind of an odd little fellow. At first I thought it might be a dog, but he has some horns - so cow it is.
There you sports fans - thanks again for your kind comments. Look for my Birthday/Hallowe'en Gift-a-way in the next week or so!!
