Day 141 of 2018

I've done a little wardrobe redo. 
This is one of my favorite dresses, 
but it was a bit too short for my liking. 
The lace I added is from a shirt I bought on clearance 
specifically for this purpose.  
It cost way less than any lace I could have purchased at the fabric store.  
I sure hope it looks like it does in my head as I intend to wear it tomorrow.

Day 139 of 2018

Two cedar waxwings were perched high in our side yard tree this afternoon. 
The one on the left is showing you the little red spot on his wing. 
(zoom in to see his spot)
Now the one on the left is into some serious grooming while the one on the right 
finally decided to give me the profile picture I was looking for.

Day 138 of 2018


I am still stitching snowflakes.  This is definitely some slow stitching. 
The snowflake measures about twelve inches in diameter.  
The good thing about this one as opposed to the other two 
is that this one is a continuous line from start to finish.  
The only time I will need to stop is when I run out of the current piece of thread.  
The bad thing is that I may be at it forever.  
Only five and a half more spokes to go 
and then it's back to the others to finish the inside cut-outs.

We got married 43 years ago today. 
I love this guy more than ever.
