I am thoroughly depressed over the effects of Hurricane Katrina... why are people hurting so down there? And, I won't ask why.... I already know why... but I am so angry at those who are taking advantage of this country by gouging us at the pumps... when there is no valid reason to even increase gas prices. USA Today recently reported we have more gasoline reserves right now than we did at this time last year, but gas at the end of my street is $3.39 today.... hmmmm.... moving to the islands is becoming more and more appealing right now... I hate this helpless feeling that comes with knowing we are being taken advantage of... and worse, people are hurting and dying in the south...
And, tonight I just kept going with this sampler... I can see the light approaching at the end of the tunnel now.... sorry you cannot click it to enlarge it tonight. Blogger pics was acting up, so I had to use Photobucket instead.
Passione Ricamo's next release has been unveiled, and she is a beauty! Have you seen her? This is Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace. Oh my!!!! She is going to be a must stitch, of course!!! I wonder what fabric she will look best on.... ah, a sweet little distraction for me tonight!
I ordered the silk pack today for Just Nan's Love Letters - got it on sale, what the heck.
And Thea Dueck has released her latest freebie today - this is Connie, the 2005 Angel.... and she is stitched with DMC! Yes, she is actually an affordable stitch this year!!! If you want the pattern, sign up for free to her VS Club and download her :-) I already did :-) **If you have not already signed up for the VS Club, I want to plug it a little for you - her animated stitch diagrams are amazing!!! They are really worth checking out! You can access them after you sign up for her club.
And, I picked up the new Cross Stitcher (UK Magazine) - I couldn't find a pic on the net, nor did I feel like getting my camera out, so I got the pic off of an ebay auction - LOL!! Some cute Margaret Sherry stuff in it, as always :-)
Red Sox 7, Devil Rays 4 - that is a sweep of the series, and an increased lead to 3.5 games over the Yankees.... for now :-)
And, so how much will gasoline cost tomorrow??!!
