So... Thursday - I was exhausted and didn't have the heart to lie to you and blog about fluffy happy things because I did not feel fluffy nor happy. lol
I continued to sew. Things began to look up. I nearly completed another new piece. This one is based on a photo I took from the truck window while our family headed home after our last day at Pike Lake.
|in progress for my December exhibit: Home from the Lake|
The sun was getting low and every west-facing slope of the ground was lit up. It was so pretty. This scene brings back many happy memories... not only from that day, but from every summer that ever ended. The blooms in the front are wild mustard.
Late Thursday also brought a delivery! I forgot I had ordered a couple second hand books online. I love to read the words of both of these men. They are so heartwarming. Their paintings and photographs are so nostalgic for me. It was just what I needed - some soul inspiration.
|Books by the late Courtney Milne (signed by the author), and the work of Allen Sapp.|
I loved reading through these. They are like blogs. There are lots of photos, and little blurbs from each man describing the scenes and the situations. Heartwarming.
To top it all off, I got a badly needed therapeutic massage for my sore arms & shoulders this morning (thank you Joyce!!!). I then spent a quiet afternoon stitching with Margot. I feel pretty blessed to be doing that. She loves to share what she learned from Jan Beaney. I delight in seeing Margot's work up close and personal. Oh my. Oh my. I was embarrassed to show her my thread art! She sent me home with a bag of yummies too - a luscious assortment of yarns and fibres. So for today, I have Things I Love - many.
Now the dark sky is clearing to let the low sun shine through through my house. FINALLY! : ) The rain is done. I'm linking to Friday Felicities : ) See you soon!
