your doggie is wearing some fancy pants - no crumbs for his diner tonight. the little yellow at the base of the bullion stitch is sitting quite beauteously.

i fancy the strip of paper laying on it all paper and stitch or is there some cloth there. it is hard to tell since i can't enlarge it but it has caught my eye...and i can't seem to pull it off the screen to get it back into my eye socket! ha ha...crappy day here. cool which i like but dripping drops of's not raining though this afternoon it is suppose to but for now just drippings. i do enjoy looking at you ledgers/drawings. they have a fascination about them - "now how did she do that?" HOW does she do it? petula

so here's what i think you should do: they make these storage trunks that can be used for seating when closed. they come in various sizes and they are portable...why not consider something like that - and then there is that room that will be vacated shortly too! sleepy today - me that is. as, i just love the patches - holes or no holes.

it is also said that if you put a sheet in the freezer before you got to bed and then put the sheet on the bed at lease you have it cool for a few...i usually take a bath of just cool water and don't dry off too much and lay down on a towel until i dry off - but that has to be extreme for me to do that - wear as little as possible - or nothing if possible...and keep the fan directly on you - that's how i've gotten through the night. so now you have to compile or this wisdom and make a reference tab... i love you little parsnip embellishments - i say parsnips because when i opened the page this morning i read parsnip instead of parcel for the header - so i've decided that it should just stay parsnips. light airy parsnips... what's that you said about heat head

i thought Mr. HWPB was going to take you out for some cake - ironing board...not for the stitch goddess - ice cream, cake, and streamers...i hope you wiggle your toes at least when your ironing...

we all know that you are the missing character from alice - the mad hatter cousin karen...lewis just didn't want the story to be too long and have too many queens in competion. i think it's marvelous that your brain is on fire - which would you prefer: light bulb head or brain freeze. i'm excited too - the cooler weather (please my goddess of weather) should reappear again someday and we'll all need a titivated pouch/pocket to sit our bod-kins in. the cloth is so refreshing to see - reminds me of freshness which has nothing to do with sweatness which is where i find myself in the melt down called summer. cheers little magic stitcher of 3...though i think you are older - at least 5.5.

have you ever seen a photo of nancy cunnard? with all of her bangles. maybe we should just wear our hoops and apply them to use when needed? i have already been to class so i'm late and i have sinus nose clog today. (i think that is a new swedish dance: the sinus nose you heels three times) honestly i haven't been drinking anything but coffee this morning - and an over ripe banana for breakfast! but i am trying to keep my head up as it is a lovely day here too and i need to enslave my sister who is still here for another couple of days to help me lay so barrier cloth in the garden and patch a few spots on mom's mortar on the house. this has nothing today with anything here today dose it...oh well...when you live alone you tend to talk to anyone who listens?!? i better say something related to todays post before i get carded next time. what i really like (luv) are the patches and the way the turned edges make them look like they have their own frames - they are miniature framed pictures in my nuttter's brain. i think it is affecting me - my dream last night. I was dreaming about "jack taylor" to PBS show with iain glen...i think it was exciting - you know at my age - well - let's not go there. sorry karen - i'm just one big blabber mouth today. Hello Deanna too. and anyone else who reads this - forgive the rambling of an old stitcher woman who's lost her shoes.

i have never tried macs so might have to check into that some as always is still the issue. i know that they are much better tool for creative people. the university, art institute, only used macs in the classroom. the library was transitioning to macs when i retired. i am something of a Luddite but always interested in learning something sure i would enjoy the mac. thanks deanna.
