Sorry about being AWOL from my blog for a few days but we've been enjoyed a nice visit with our #2 son and daughter-in-love who live in BC. They decided to fly home for a wedding and we got to have them with us for three whole days! Needless to say the computer was the furthest thing from my mind!
Here they are, having fun, with the tree they planted at
One of the things I wanted to make mention of to you is something I read about on Mary Corbet's blog a few days ago. I assume many of you are familiar with the beautiful 'Inspirations' magazine, but perhaps you were unaware that they are in danger of having to quit publishing. It would be a huge blow to the world of embroidery if that were to happen. They have put a plea out there for people to please consider subscribing so that demise won't happen. They have come up with a novel way that makes it much more affordable for those of us that would love a subscription but can't pay for it all at once. It's a 'pay-as-you-go' plan, whereby you pay for each issue as it's published and you can stop at any time you like. Go to Mary's post HERE to read more about it. I have done the 'pay-as-you-go' and can't wait for my first issue to arrive!!
Thought you might like to see my current 'collection' of tarnished silver pieces. The piece on the left has a lovely lid so it's perfect to hold my sewing pins. The rest are holding assorted pencils, scissors and such. Would love to stumble across a large coffee pot that could be turned into a lamp. I'm sure I'll find one someday!
Today the quote is from Martin Luther King.... "If a man hasn't discovered something that he would die for, he isn't fit to live"
