It's just so gorgeous out there! Okay one more... It's over-exposed, and take with my cell phone from out at the lake on the weekend. Everything is so loose and lush right now as the grasses are going to seed. I don't recall summer being THIS long ever. This is taken facing the lake, and I wanted to remember it because it's calling me to stitch it some day. (There is a faint horizon, but I set the phone to very bright to capture the true colors of the foreground which I am interested in...)
I am sure that to you it looks boring and sad after those BRIGHT red leaves... but this was so soft and pretty when I was there. It really caught my eye. The kids couldn't stop touching it!
And now for the new gadget! I found these chalk leds at Periwinkle's (our local quilt shop). It only came in white, however I bought them and tried them out in a mechanical pencil, and as the photo shows: WOW.
For some reason, white chalk pencils crack and crumble every time I try to sharpen them. THESE are fabulous. I was told they are new. I hope they come in different colors to mark on white fabric. I love that I am able to always have a clean line without needing to resharpen! Sweet.
Oh! Good news! My littlest's kindergarten was changed from mornings to afternoons, so I get to go to the afternoon and evening guild programs all year round without needing a sitter! Woohoo! That means I get TWO guild meetings today. : ) How happy am I?
