Well, my days off this week were interesting anyway. DH had an appointment with a doctor that puts in defribrillators. I really liked the doctor, he was very easy to talk to and not patronizing at all as some doctors can be. He answered all of our questions and told DH to call him when he made a decision. DH is so afraid to go into the hospitol again that I told him to make the decision that he felt the best with. He really needs to have it done but I am not going to pressure him. He fears that if he goes into the hospitol again that he will not come home again. So I can't push.
Later Tuesday evening I went to my LNS and took a pulled thread ornament candle class. What fun !!! It should be pretty when I have it completed -- almost there. This evening I went back to the LNS and took the class from last week as I was working for that one. (Wednesday is Open Class ) I started a needlepoint bargello candle -- I enjoy doing bargello. This one is done on 13 mesh canvas and uses gold opalescent white and silks - 2 shades of soft green and 2 shades of rose. I love the way it is turning out. I will post pictures when there is more to see.

Saturday, October 10, 2009
It is hard to believe that October is a reality and almost half over. I just don't know where the time goes. I used to hear people say that time went faster the older you got and used to laugh. but, I am not laughing now. I just don't believe how fast it flies away. Oh well !!
I am still stitching. Not as much as I would like but stitchinng noe the less. Work and dreaded housework seem to get in the way. i just finished a bookmark for the JA Hardanger Bookmark Tutorial. I changed the design as I did mine on canvas instead of fabric. The design called for xs and eyelets on the sides but they got lost on the canvas. So I used cables instead and am quite pleased with the finish. the other bookmark is a design of my own. I did a weaved rose in the center for something different. I like the way it looks.
Here also is my progress on two of the Garden Fairies by Nora Corbett / Mirabilia. MOrning Glory Fairy is ready for me to add the metallics and the beads, while I was waiting for some of my beads to come in I just had to start Sweet Pea Fairy and love the colors in her skirt/dress. So I guess I will have two of them to add beads and metallics to. .
thank you for visiting my blog , I will try to post more often. take care andd enjoy the clean crisp air of Fall before Father Winter adds icicles to your nose. hee hee
