Gentle Readers and Dear Friends your sweet comments once again are makin' my day!!!! Thank you so much!! - and - for the the new Followers thanks for following, I hope you enjoy my blathering!! - and - for the lurkers... thanks for lurking, I do like to know that you are there also! I also wanted to mention that in response to the overwhelming email requests and what I have seen happening all over the Blog World I have turned off the "word verification" and turned on the "Comment Moderation" - I think that will be easier for everyone. Some of the squished up words and numbers are just really too hard to read!
I got a box in the mail yesterday that had a couple of wonderful finishes I had Faye over at Carolina Stitcher whip up for me. I can usually accomplish most things I set out to do, but occasionally I know when I'm licked. So I turned to an expert in the field - I told her what I was thinking of and slam bam thank you ma'am she magically transformed my bits o'stitching into lovely pieces. I can only show one of them at the moment as the other has not not been sent and received.
I redid my Fall Table over with one of the pieces Faye made up for me... here's a snap -
As you can see I added a few more Fall / Hallowe'en things and now I'm all set for the Season!! Here is a close up of the table mat ....
I stitched this piece a few years ago and at the time I made it into a flat-fold. I was never very happy with the way it turned out - so - I ripped up the flat fold and sent the stitched piece the Faye and now I have this beauty. I can not say how great Faye is and her work is impeccable!!! I highly recommend her finishing skills!!
Yesterday at dusk we had the privilege of a double rainbow.....
.....yes, the sky was a purple/pink colour and although you can see the double rainbow in the snap - the real thing was just mind boggling. It lasted for about 14 minutes and then was gone. This shot is taken looking East across the Bay and toward the Oakland Hills and Mt Diablo.
That's about it for today sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!
