Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for your input - I knew all these great minds working together would basically agree with my crazy and obsessive lunacy. I worked on the cloud some more last night and think I will go with the smoother less striped version. Although I am working 1/2 stitches cross and then crossing them back the subtle shading of the GAST "Pebble" floss is still coming through. There are darker spots and lighter spots - kinda like the way clouds are - so I am sure I'll be content with the finished product. In regards to the "Burnt Orange" star - I will leave it until the end and either love it or hate it - and make a decision then - I love procrastination!!
I picked up my new glasses yesterday - and overall I am very happy with them - they sit nicely on my nose and sort of "clamp" on behind my ears with little built in springs at the hinge. Here's a snap (do look past the vulture feet and grey hair!!)
They are called "Madrid" and are by Etnia from Barcelona, the colour is Oxide. I really like the subtle little checkered pattern of dark brown and dark grey squares along the temples. There you go - my glasses for the next couple of years.
I find it odd that my little "toddler" scar gets more pronounced as I get older. If you look by my left eyebrow you see a scar from when I was about 3 and I was still unsteady on my feet. I banged my head or just fell onto the edge of a coffee table at my Great Aunt Mary's in Tarboro, NC - I have been told I bled profusely but didn't cry... and had to have 2 stitches. These are the only stitches I have ever had and hope to ever have, but the scar lives on!! Now, that's and odd bit of edgar trivia!!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by and for your super comments!!!
Do stop again!
