Wow, I cant believe it's been another month since I last updated my blog...so much has happened in my life and in the country. First, my heart goes out to all those affected by the terrible storm that ripped through the northeastern part of the country. We had some high winds here in western Pa, but got through it ok. My prayers are with all those who are still suffering and unfortunately I think the worst may yet be to come as the clean up begins.
At the same time the devastating loss in Benghazi Libya haunts my dreams...I wont go all political or anything but we need answers...especially those in the military who lost so much. The fall of 2012 has been a terrible one for so so many and I can only hope that winter will bring some relief. I am looking for ways to help where I can now that things have settled down with my mom (sort of). She has been home now for 2 weeks and things are still rough. I wont bore you all with the details and in comparison to what others are going through right now, well I will be just fine. The upside of this storm coming through my area is that it grounded me for a few days and I was able to get into the kitchen and dye some wool and work on some projects...I listed TONS of new wool bundles and this time I made sure I did my regular bundles and lots of 1/4 yard pieces so please be sure to check out my WOOL FOR SALE page.
I got a great little present in the mail the other day from my Aunt Linda...She saw this little penny rug in a shop while visiting Wooster Ohio and thought of me...Can you tell she knows me oh so well ???
It sure is a lot nicer than the little penny rug I tried to make earlier in October...I cant figure out how to get my stitches to stay "down"...anyone know what I am doing wrong ??? See how my blanket stitches seem to sit on top of my pumpkins instead of being closer to the foundation piece ???
I did get to spend a little time with the hubs before the storm and we spent some time out and about...poor guy has been working non stop (wish he got paid by the hour) and he kept saying we would definately get out to see the fall leaves, which is one of our favorite things to do in the fall...well week after week went by and so we finally just went to a park near our house and just took a nice long walk in the woods...I love the smell of fall, dont you ? And the crinkling of leaves underfoot ? Oh how nice it was to spend an hour or so completely uniterrupted with just me and the hubs...he took a ton of pics but I thought this one was kind of cute..
The hubs flat out refused to let me take his picture but I did just love this one he took...overcast days are my fall favorite...
Well I have loads more to tell you and am going to REALLY try to post MUCH more often...like I said, life has settled back down and I am hopig this time to be back to blogging for good ! I would love to hear from everyone..I have missed you all very much and have been comforted by those of you who sent me little messages of encouragement when you didnt see me post for awhile....I wish I could hug you all.
I am gonna scoot for today...gotta get something to eat...I have been sitting at the computer for hours, literally in the same place and now I am sooooo stiff !!! GRRRR
Until next time,
Grace to you,
