Taking A Mental Rest

...try Kathy's blog:

http://www.kathyscottage.blogspot.com/

She is serene and graceful, even in the middle of what obviously can be a hectic life. Her decorations and crafts have a certain quality about them -- and you can buy her work via etsy, as well. (Take a look on her blog's sidebar.)

I'm getting ideas already.

I even went and looked up her December posts -- hey, still on the Christmas thing -- including a wonderful photo of white feather trees surrounded by drifts of white and mother-of-pearl buttons. Beautiful in a dainty, frosty way.

What a relaxing break, even while I'm sweating through these two quilts I'm finishing up restoring. I stitch and stitch and STITCH, through 'Cold Case,' 'Law and Order' and umpteen hours of the Olympics. Someday very soon, I hope to send them on their way. They need to go, for both the client's sake (who has been very patient) -- and mine.

If these quilts don't leave, there may be someone running down the street, screaming and throwing needles and fabric bits everywhere....while she hums Christmas carols!

Well Cindy, it WOULD be kind of fun to see you careening crazily down the street flinging your stitching things...but I hope it doesn't go that far.
Hope you'll have some pics up from this coming week-end...

Just A Little Longer...

...and summer's over. I can't say I'll really miss this one. It's been full of packing and sorting, and dragging ourselves...
