Thoughts for Thursday



When  I saw this I thought I could make it out of wool with some Spargoing...that is the issue no matter where you go you take your stitching brain with you.  The list is never ending!!!

I left early this morning to video the set up of the Tucson Quilt Show and it did not disappoint.  The show will have 300 quilts and 40 vendors and I can't wait till tomorrow to go see it again!  The Tucson guild is filled with talent!

Just to give you a taste...I fell in love with this quilt because not only is it beautiful but it reminded me of my friend Cakers and made me a bit home sick :)

Oh Boy....

I hit the door running this morning and totally forgot to post the blog...I swear the boss is going to fire me...oh yeah...I am my own boss!  I guess I deserve a raise!!

Jumped in the pool for my water exercise class and boy was it a bit nippy this morning...45 degrees.  Lucky for me the pool was heated.  Then when I got home G and I left to check out the Pima Air Museum which was fascinating.  So many planes with a variety of different functions.  And now I am back home for some stitching time.  This is going to be a wonderful week with the Tucson Quilt Show opening on Friday and I can't wait to share it with you :)

In between all that I stumbled upon a cross stitch chart that is screaming my name!  I am afraid because I have never done a HAED.  That is short of Heaven and Earth Designs.  They are what is called full coverage pieces and I don't know...seem beyond my ability.  But when I saw this one I swooned!!!

I didn't buy it...but, put it on my wish list.  What do you think?  I think I need to talk with my friend Becca about the program you can use on an Ipad to track your stitches and see if I could possible tackle this...I sure do love her!

Hope you have a wonderful rest of Tuesday and Wednesday and I'll see you on Thursday!

Mea Culpa Mea Culpa


It seems I have lost track of time and I keep forgetting what day of the week it is...the sign of either a busy full life or one that is a bit crazy, lol.  Most days I wake up and forget what day of the week it is...should I be worried?  The temperature is starting to climb...but ever so slightly and the view out of one of the upper windows is changing to that beautiful desert sunrise.


Each time we hit the road I learn something about myself and I have made some emotional growths even at my age!  We tend to want to stick to our comfort zones and patterns but I think challenging ones comfort zone is mind expanding.  Trying to things rather than keeping to the same ol same ol.

This last week a group of friends attended the performance "Showdown in Tucson"  Most of them had been to a performance at this theater before but it was the first time for both of us and we had a belly laugh of a good time!!  What an entertaining evening as this time performance poked fun at the oldie but goodie Westerns we grew up with.


The best part of traveling is seeing America and its peeps...
and I laughed when I saw this car...
now that is clever advertising!


One day G and I hit the antique second hand stores 
and when I saw this 
I knew I would have to cross stitch it...
somehow it made me feel good...
how about you?


May the rest of this week bring you 
new enlightenment about yourself and then peace.
