A little randomness before turning the page to a new month. My pledge...please note, not a resolution...this year was to find a little joy in each day and clear the clutter that's accumulated over the past 36 years! Little did I know how much work was involved. Most days have been lovely, especially those spent with friends and family. However, one cannot stitch or be on a computer while purging. Instead of the home being full, the bins at the thrift store are. When I do come up for air, this is what's seen.
Unique Christmas morning alarm.
Lovely snow...no one to dine with...wonder why?
Small gift of stitching...adaptation from Blackbird Designs "Peppermint & Holly."
Thank you to each and every one for stopping by and saying "Hello"...it's always nice to hear from you. Here's hoping your days in this still new 2013 are filled with what ever makes you happy!
The car being towed twice (in shop 4 times at 2 different locations) and flat tire on second car is going to make for a stressful holiday. After all, there's been...
Finish work for friends
Not to mention shopping and the list of to do's. And yes, even a few cards mailed! Stress is not in the vocabulary...if it isn't finished, it will not be the end of the world. I have however, been re-thinking blogging. To blog or not? No stress, I will think about it later. Thanking you for stopping by and please know, much pleasure and even knowledge is gained while visiting your blogs.
How about you are you stressing or taking time to enjoy the Spirit of the Season?
To dance with squirrels...don't you think? Or at least one very good "witchy" friend to join you. Fancey Blackett & the Harvest Dance" by Pineberry Lane was finished over a year ago. Having found a frame in the stash, it is ready to share. Fun finish, fun frame and fun friend!
Thank you all for stopping by and not giving up on me. I will get back into the groove someday. Just know your comments are read and appreciated.
By the way, just when does one dance with squirrels?
And I still miss this lovely tree. As some of you may recall, last year the difficult decision to remove our "anniversary tree" was made. That decision was certainly not easy, but for a number of reasons, just had to be done.
Resulting in no tree and a bare front yard.
With a hot and dry summer, the front became nothing more than an eye sore. Do you know how difficult it is to pull into your garage with your eyes shut?! Inspiration, guidance and woman power begets a new front garden.
It isn't easy landscaping an incline, especially one with tree roots. However, it can be done.
The neighbors drive by, stop and say, "Looks good", "Different", "Lots of work"....Really, what can they say? I just don't think they understand...no one does much to their yards around here. Wonder what's said about the purple table setting in the midst of all??!!
Frost is coming soon and one more plant to get in the ground (providing no more jump into my cart) so that may be it until next spring. Guess I can dream and plan and maybe even think how I will work with my fanny not in the air...that so bothers the guy around here.
