Gentle Friends, I think I'll post today instead of tomorrow with some snaps... first up is CTA...
... as you can see I've gone back and made some stitching changes... one of the things that had been bothering me about this piece was the seagulls. I've live my whole life near the sea and I can't remember ever seeing all-white seagulls. I didn't care for them as charted but I was stitching away on them and so left them alone. Then I got reading over on the Facebook SAL and how other stitchers have dealt with them and I loved the different solutions... so I went back with my trusty seam ripper and ripped out all the original stitching... now the seagulls as I have stitched them are... "WDW - Grits" for the body, wings tipped and the eye is "WDW - Gunmetal", the beaks are "WDW - Daylily" the feet are "DMC 640". I am so happy I went back and did this. In redoing this stitching I'm a bit behind but this is, as with all my stitching, for fun a relaxation, and not a race!
It's Fall and I was reading on Natasha's Kitchen blog about Apple Pie and got a wild hair and had to make one... I couldn't find my pie pan, lord only knows where that has gotten too... so I hauled out the 9" springform and it worked fine...you can go HERE and read her recipe, it's very delicious and so simple!!
... we've gotten back some clear skies the last few days, I think I took this on Friday...
looking west to Twin Peaks.
Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
