MORE FALL & MORE KNITTING

Been busy here--
yesterday I actually got 2 'old' stitching projects framed--

The blessings one is a Bird Brain one and I got it stamped on the wash off fabric-
but do have to say--
I am not a fan of it--
first for me -- it is harder to stitch through and takes longer--
yet is saves alot of time of tracing the design--
second--
you really have to be sure that the thread you are using is colorfast--
mine was not, apparently--
cause it bleed in a couple spots when I had to wet the fabric to wash off the top coating where the design was traced on!!! ( did I make any sense here???)
the other is a counted cross stitch one I did about 3 years ago!!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
And here is my knitting for this past week--
The ear flap hats still need some kind of strings for tying and the little red hat --
 I think I may add a pom pom to the very top--
need to take a week off of knitting though!!!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
And a couple more fall decorating areas are done--
this is my dry sink as you come into the apartment--
last years wall hanging on my office chair--
the Halloween hexagon quilt on the back of the couch--
and look at what I found 'under' the couch???
Humm--what is that????
a half of a cat--
or the back end of a cat????

OK--I CLIMBED UP--

into the closet and got all the 'fall' stuff down--
and made a big mess on my bed-
so now 'who' is going to come and decorate my place with it all????

Did fuss a bit this afternoon--
did a fall arrangement--
Did the wicker table next to the computer table--
hung the fall runner outside the door--
and this one on the door--

Now to decide what to do with all the rest--
and I need someone 'tall' to come and replace the 2 quilts over the tv and computer table here on the wall with 2 of my fall quilts!!
I really need a taller stool--
it is just--
I would only use that stool about 3 times a year--
and would have to store it someplace in here for just that little bit of usage!!!
some of us have such 'real' problems don't  we?????

SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY

And once again it is Sunday--
and that means I get to 'share' my treasure hunt with everyone!!!

1. Book--
Not sure if this shows any of my 'photography' talent--
but is really was a good read--
and it showed me to not give up on my dream!!!!

2. Mail--
Mostly all I get in the mail is ads and magazines--
and a package or two--
if I order something!!
this last week I order a special camera holder for me to wear to
hold my camera!!

3. Star--
Don't you just love morning glories and how each one has a star within
it's design????

4. Saturated--
I live in an upstairs apartment--
and the other day we got alot of rain and when I looked out the window--
I realized that our sidewalk was 'saturated' in water!!!

5. Wall-
This is painted on the outside wall of one of the buildings on main street--
and seeing as this is a racing town--
what better than race cars!!!!

The weather here has finally gotten down into fall temps--
so it won't be as easy for me to get out and do photos--
but do hope to continue the game!!

Have a great Sunday y'all--
hugs, di and miss gracie

SHE CAME!!!

My stitching fairy actually came by--
But--she brought a couple of her 'friends' with her--
and I don't know if it was her--
or one of her friends-
but--
this is what I got--
instead of--
They must of gotten 'drunk' on my wool stash--
But their excuse was--
that squirrels are grey, too!!!
hugs, di and miss gracie
