I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I have been able to make two more of my "Sleigh Bells" postage stamp blocks using bits of time here and there.  

one more of "Greylock Mts."

I find that slow going makes me really watch for joinings.  (Sometimes the "rain" blows sideways on my mountain top over the flowers...)

DH is getting better each day that passes; thank you all for your kind concern. 
Today we were able to do a boardwalk stroll--such a glorious Autumn/summer-like day...very hazy but beautiful.  Our trees have such a variety of yellows, pinks, peaches, reds, maroons--you name it.  Amazing colors.  A visual treat at every turn.  

MEANWHILE...back on the design wall......................

Georgie is mumbling again! Every time I pass by my room I can hear his whispers:   "My BACK is cold; I don't have anything there you know!  I need to get a backing before the cold weather comes in... I was out in the coldest cold before and I know what I'm talking about!!"  He is certainly a grumpy George... perhaps the fact that he has wooden teeth makes him testy...ya think?? ;--000

Maybe I had better get busy and back him soon...if only to quiet him down!  

Hugs, Julierose La Blageuse (Nurse-euse)

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
