The pumpkins are ready to be squared up and sent off to Brenda! Whew what a job! I loved doing them! They took my mind off of things to come with my medical issues. I will get them ready for mailing tomorrow! I will miss them sigh..they are everywhere! kidding...but will do it again sometime I am sure.. :) I was able to use up some of my stash.
It was rainy today here! But boy was it humid! I wanted to change something about me, I was tired of being sick all the time! I read that book "The Secret" and keep the positive images in my mind. I really do! Has anyone read that book? It is a great book! I just keep thinking OK, it is just in the genes..so put it in God's hands..so what can I change? OH the color of my hair? SO YES! I did it! My husband will be shocked when he comes home! I have been blonde all my life...now I am well...drum roll...............
the box says...... well I figure summer blonde goodbye and I will go with... autumn or amber brown! Do I look Irish now? Oh boy I do! It makes my eyes look real blue now! what a shocker! Even Woody looked at me and ran into the sewing room and has been in there for three hours! I prodded him out by giving him shrimp! Yes and I wouldn't touch them, I took them out of the bag with a pair of scissors! So I can control the color of my hair so I will do that. Now I feel like I can handle something. Will it be the same color in the winter? I do not know. Maybe it will be hmmmm.... Winter Blue??? kidding....
I did my hair red for the Red Sox! Nah! I am not that crazy or am I?
Hey if it takes my mind off the things I don't want to think about it helps!
My next projects are a quilt for the two grand boys and I must say I received Judy Laquidara's new book Nine-Patch Extravaganza (http://judylaquidara.blogspot.com/) and the quilts will come from that book; a couple wall hangings; and to quilt what I have made. I ordered my book on Amazon.com. There are many size quilts in the book. It is well worth buying.
I need to also do my needle punch projects I started. Anyone out there like needle punch? If so do you add material around as a border? I like it like that, then frame it. I like a primitive look. Oh and a good book to read, just another thought, The Wednesday Letters. What a great story about commitments, morals and family values.
