hello out there in blogland!! hope this finds all well and happy!!!!!! …and while i am on a happy note…HAPPY FALL!!! i know. in some places, including here , it does not feel like fall…it is our indian summer and humid to boot…yuchhhh. but not as bad as where my DS is working right now. arkansas…it was 105 F yesterday and apparently he got sick from the heat. i am sure he wasn’t the only one…hopefully they will catch a break and get some cooling off. we are to cool off tomorrow, back to a reasonable temperature for the area and time.
it has been a while since i have been on the blog, so time to catch up. the above picture is of a room darkening shade i am making for our “headache” room. it is a panel that someone gifted me, years ago, and i finally have a place to use it. the pic is misleading, my apologies, it is a burgundy red with goldtone and brown flowers. i have echo quilted around each of the large floral arrangements and am beginning the crosshatch quilting of the background. when complete i intend to make a roman shade for the particular window.this is a better picture, at least the colors are a tiny bit more appropriate! as you can see i have marked the background so as to attempt to maintain some semblance of regularity and spacing between the lines. so when complete, more pictures will be shown.
i was fortunate enough to get to go to colorado to see my DS, his wife and three children, the youngest is still a newborn, all 17 weeks! and , boy, did i have fun! the children are a treat…the eldest is the big sister to two little brothers. and she started school this year! she simply cannot wait to learn how to write and read. she is 4 and charming as the day is long. we have a mutual love of one another that runs very deeply!! i am still crying over leaving them and coming home. i want us all to live in a common area ;(. but anyway, she has two little brothers, and i mean little! the eldest is just 2, mothers day, and his new brother was born about mothers day this year!! they have their hands full!!! plus, three dogs…OMG!!!
..and they all share…virus’ with their Mimi!…Mimi came home with bronchitis, still have a bubble in my chest, after antibiotics no less…hope it decides to just go away and let me rest…
anyway, i have been having fun, and i really cannot complain. i came back to fall, i have not had a northern fall for a few years and i am truly excited! there are tons of sugar maples up here and they are promising to be spectacular! whoo hoo!!!
i will close down for the day, now, as DH is home and my elderly mother is hungry!
my wish for you all is happiness, good health, and a wealth of creativity!
until next time,
fiber art, fiber fun, fiber feel, CREATE!!!!
