Don't ya just love Fridays? I think they are just the best.
I got up this morning and took the camera to take some pictures
of the last of my flowers. I am sick of weeds. So I expect, to just
tell my husband when he gets on the tractor, " Just Go For It."
It will be hard to say though. They do look pretty. I don't sew
fast enough but to do a sewing blog about once a month.
I left the flash on because you can see the colors better
I haven't seen my grand children in a while and I had finished school and
I was feeling very lonesome so I sent Meg a text and she came
over and she knitted and I hooked and we had a very pleasant afternoon
with the kids and then Kessie came over with her kids the next
day so I am a very happy Grama going into this labor day weekend. Those
of you that have grand children, does your grandma love tank get empty
like mine? I just get so lonesome for them as well as my kids I don't know
what I would do if I didn't see them on a regular basis.
I have had a thing about crows this year. I just love the way
they look and so I bought some patterns that had crows in them
because I thought they would be easy.
Maybe for normal people this would be easy. Can you see what
I did? I cut the fabric too small so It isn't centered. I even thought
about just cutting off the crow and using it as a patch. I am so challenged
when it comes to Counted Cross stitch. I have to do it in a room that
is quiet, has good light and I have to wear my head gear I got so I can
see. Then of course there is that whole counting thing. I can't count.
If I had to count things to cook dinner my family would starve.
But like the line from Galaxy Quest, "Never give up, never surrender," that is how I feel.
I know that someday if I keep doing it, someday I will be able to count. Then I will tackle linen.
Then the other day I got this:
It is a lovely magazine with some of my favorite patterns by
my favorite designers. I really have enjoyed looking at it.
I will make something out of it pretty soon. I just am tired
in my mind and counted cross stitch I need to be in top mental
form. I was in top mental form when I started the crow. Look how
it turned out. Rug hooking is so much easier because for one thing
I can see.
I love Labor Day weekend, because it is the push to start getting the hatches
battened down and get things cleaned up around here.
Here is my favorite verse for Labor Day weekend:
"There is nothing, better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot."
So we will be enjoying our work.
Have a lovely weekend,
