Gentle Readers thank you so much for all your kind words about ATS and M&B. Two fun pieces to work on - last night I worked some on an Exchange piece that will go out next week - I think that will take up most of this week - stitching and finishing.
Over the weekend we made our usual run around to the "shops" and "sales." It was pretty poor pickins' - but I did manage to find a couple of things....
I love engravings and finding an older one, with a great wash really made my day - This beauty came from the Goodwill in the Richmond - its an older piece in a great older beat up frame... and I found the little hand carved bird at an estate sale - burned into the bottom..... "Black Capped Chickadee" #51 11/90 JB on a pear wood base, John Berry. I have no idea who John Berry is, but this little guy is great and so he had to come home with me.
After Mass on Sunday we made a Trader Joe's run and then stopped off at a Farmers Market. I had my camera so I got some snaps...
You could tell it was fall with all the great Harvest produce...
There were lots of super pumpkins!!
........ orange was the colour of the day!! We picked up a double bunch of these great marigolds. On the way out I stopped and picked up a....
.... golden waffle, and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream was a treat for dessert after dinner!!
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks again for stopping by and for you great comments!!
