STOP THE BUS---

 for Di in going outside twice a day--she is not getting anything done inside--and she needs to do a blog post--

so get out the iron and lets get the last blocks and such she has gotten done in the last 10 days and get them pressed and then do photos--so we can do this post!!!!

Good girl--

So here goes--

I got this 'free' embroidery finished--


I enjoyed stitching on this afternoon's after I came inside from being out on the patio visiting and now and then feeding the squirrel that would come up for a peanut!!

Also got the latest block from 'Joy's' site embroidered--

And I hope she doesn't mind--but added the lacey looking doily under the teapot!!

And this week I also finished the 'Jars' counted cross stitching--

This was really a fun stitchery--

And I did get the orange heart all appliqued on to the back ground piece--
I need to start some of the fancy embroidery on these hearts and I need to count them and see how many I have done--as I only did one in each color this year!!

Years ago--when I got back into knitting alittle I used to knit these '13' point dish cloths--
and the other day on a site-someone printed the pattern for them and I had to try and see if I could still do them--and I am happy to say--they came out perfect ---but---they are addicting--as there is a 3rd one on the needles now--and yes--there is still a pair of socks I am working on and a shawl-and the baby sweaters--
talking about the baby sweaters--I just sent out a box of 15 of them, with 2 hats, and several cute pairs of baby and toddler socks to the World Vision center!!!

And yesterday afternoon--before I visited out on the patio--I walked over to the Molly Mutts thrift store--took a few things over for donations---and yes--carted a few new things home--


a large fall type bird for decorating (now if the fairies would go down to the storage unit and take out the front stuff so I could get to my bag of fall things hanging on a hook in the back--I could actually decorate some--hummm!!!!!

and they have a Christmas area now in the shop and this little snowman guy wanted to come home with me--I tried to talk him out of it--but he insisted I needed 'him' for my collection--(but I do think he needs a couple black dots for eyes!!)

And the other night I was reading blog sites and it got darker off to the north of me--No rain--but I looked out and seen this--


a very intense rainbow--


Then a big flock of birds came and fly over top of that building and off to the south of here--
I see them often do this about this time of late afternoon--

The rainbow stayed for a long time--so pretty to watch!!

Oh and I got a new 'mouse'--I must be hard on my mice--I seem to need to get me a new one every 18 months or sooner--but what a difference a new one makes--I have already 'house broke' this one!!!!!

Well that's it for tonight--do take care and be sure to enjoy some nature this week--then post some photos on your site if you have one !

THINKING OF YOU TODAY--
HUGS, DI

  1. Ha! That last cartoon! Love the knitting and I too saw that on Jocelyn's site this weekend for the neat dish cloth. I think the added touch on the doily is perfect.
    I hear a chicken honking... must be an egg to retrieve.
