A Little Stitchin'

10 comments:
Gentle Friends...  I finished up the "bar and roses" band and the black and white check divider for the next band........

....... then I thought I needed to work on "July" on the Prim Animal Sampler......


....so I hauled it out of the old WIP basket, and converted the called for DMC to WDW floss and started in on "July"  ..... I think I'll also do "August" to finish up the Summer months.......
_______________

It was a totally lazy weekend and I slept away most of Sunday......  lovely breeze and warm sun with the temps in the 70's make for one good ole nappin' day!!!!  Hope your weekend was as non-eventful!  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!

Take care,

Playin' Softball

16 comments:
Gentle Friends....Sunday after Mass were the last two softball games of the season.  Rico, along with Ernie and Matt are cheerleaders for the F-Liners part of the SFGSL - (San Francisco Gay Softball League) and the tradition with the team they come in drag for the last game..........

.... Matt made the outfits and from left to right.... Ernie, Rico and Matt........

... not only do the cheerleaders do "dress up" but the team does also.......



.... all the teams in the League have sponsors and the F-Liners is sponsored by The Edge, a bar in the Castro.... 



... even though they played the two best teams int he league, they did a great job and had a super day out on the field in the sun!!!

......  the entire team .....  it was a great afternoon with lots of sun.....
 I am still burned a bit and red faced.

Gentle Friends, I finished up the black-work band and moved on to the roses and bar band..... 
here's a snap.....

.... I really like the way black-work looks and after I got going it seemed to stitch up quickly.

A Pooch Post

Gentle Friends, I'll finish out the week on a cute note........

......  warm socks and a quick who hound make for a darling snap!!  Lolly made a leap into the pile of socks before I got a chance to fold them up - she quickly settled down and took a nap.

Something New

20 comments:
Gentle Friends, a couple of weeks ago I went for my annual eye exam and found that as I have in the last year my left eye has gotten a little more wonky than the right and so it was time for a new prescription and that means new glasses........  

I must have tried about 100 different glasses on and waffled back and forth between stainless steel and titanium frames.......  eventually settling on....... 

on a pair that comes in this great triangular "collapsible" case

- it folds almost flat when not needed......
___________________________

....  here I am with  my new glasses, from Gucci.  I choose them in the Matte Blue colour with steel frames....  they feel quite a bit lighter than my other daily glasses and I like that the ear pieces have a bit of a grip to them.

Gentle Friends, I finished up the queen stitched strawberries....


......the little checked dividing line and have started in on the floral black work band.....  so, I guess my goal is to have the black work band done by the end of the week.....  it seems to move rather slowly, but looks interesting!!

Thrifty Thursday

8 comments:
Gentle Friends,  not much of anything going on around here.... it was very warm Monday - in the mid 80's.... then Tuesday it dropped back to the 60's with lots of wind and then yesterday it rained all day, so that was very nice.

Last Saturday we ran around and I found some fun things......

....  I found a great copy of an anime classic "Spirited Away", a little Peter Pan porcelain figurine -a favorite book from childhood and great Disney Movie so how could I pass on him, a nice older Belleek vase, a sweet little cup and saucer made in the German US Zone, and a little piece of tourist china from my favorite Chateau, Chenonceau built over the Cher river.  I've visited this chateaux a few times over the years and every time I go I become more and more taken with the house and gardens!!
