Finished right at my usual nightly quitting time, here, at last, is Part 10 of Medieval Town Mandala. I apologize for cutting off most of the gold ball at the top of the building at the top of the fabric.... This piece evokes so many emotions for me. I am frustrated with it. I spend so much energy struggling with this white belfast and trying to touch it as little as possible. As a result, it feels like each and every stitch takes twice as long as it normally would. And, this is the poorest quality belfast linen I have ever stitched on. I don't know why this one is so terrible, it has so many flaws in it. That evokes bad feelings for me. But I do love this project and cannot wait to finish it!
Although the day started off well, the afternoon again turned to thunderstorms, so no new photos from the garden. But I found in my file that Mike had taken some photos of small areas of the garden a couple of days ago. So, I figured I would honor a request someone had posted for a picture of the garden. This is a row of daylilies blooming atop a rock wall in the backyard. It is the primary view we get from our back kitchen window, and they are the first blooms I see each day as I prepare my coffee to bring to work...
All of Massachusetts and New England is all wrapped up in the Big Dig Tunnel Collapse in Boston on Monday night. Four three-ton concrete ceiling tiles fell and crashed onto a car in the tunnel that leads to Logan Airport, crushing a woman... her poor husband was able to crawl out with relatively minor injuries... but without his newlywed wife. This is so tragic and is yet another major difficulty with this debaucle they call "The Big Dig." This tunnel is now closed indefinitely, and getting to Logan Airport to fly in and out of Boston is much more difficult now!
While running mundane errands in WalMart today, I did have some fun looking in the DVD Dump Bin... after all, there were no decent new releases this week... and I got Screwed...a very funny, very silly movie with Norm McDonald that I love when I come across it on cable.... LOL
The first day in the new office was excellent!!! I will try to take photos soon.
****Hmmmm, I could be wrong, and I will double check, but it appears that Just Nan did not contribute an ornament to the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 10th Anniversary Collection. That's disappointing.... I just renewed my JCS subscription today, so I will receive the 2006 Ornament Magazine for free.... I love that deal each year!
