Gentle Readers and Dear Friends why does it seem that the weekend is so short and the weeks are soooo long??? I try not to ponder that age old question too much... it hurts my already overtaxed brain!!
We really did absolutely nothing out of the ordinary over the weekend.... a highlight for Saturday was running some errands. I did drop off an older stitched finish at the framers.... that will be ready in a couple of weeks. It will be so nice to get it framed and up on the wall - instead of rolled up and in a drawer!!
Saturday was a really lovely day here in SF - the weather was perfect - bright sunny and in the high 70's low 80's, depending on where in the city you were. I sort of cleaned house and watch the weather blow by - but that was fun also!! Sunday the weather fell into the high 50's and the fog rolled in over Twin Peaks... so everything was back to normal in about 24 hours - cool and windy!
I worked on Shores and finished up the "Pale Grey" on Block 8 - here is a snap of both Block 8 and 12 - I got the last square going.....
As you can see I am leaving the long stitched rigging on the ship on Block 8 until I complete all the cross stitching. Here is an over all snap of Shores...
I am totally stoked about getting to the last block... !! I also hauled out my next Hawk Run Hollow piece to start. I think I will go with Autumn at HRH as the next one to work on. I went over all my NPI Silks and find that I have about 1/2 of them already in my stash so I need to collect up the rest of them and decide on the Linen - then I can get going on that one. That may be my 2013 Start on January 1st!!
We stopped off after breakfast yesterday at the Alamo Square farmers Market and I got some shots over there....
The tulips where really lovely....
We picked up some Iris' and Sunflowers for the house...
and here's a quick Movie Trivia Question..."The calla lilie's are in bloom again..." who said it and in what film was it said......???
I'll wrap up today's post with the cake I made yesterday...
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by - do stop again!!
