Yesterday was SAL day with Barbi, and if you read my post yesterday, you know that we were a bit busy over here playing (oops... I mean organizing) my threads that I didn't have too much time to stitch, so not much progress was made...
I will admit though stitching her face and her skin with ecru and her eyes, sort of gave her a creepy ghoulish look, at least to me... She has sort of that goth look about her, and her eyes seem snakish to me... I actually had to cover her face while I stitched that one leaf! Call me crazy but she creeped me out late last night while I was up alone stitching... But I still love her, and I do enjoy working on her...so that is a good thing!
Also, if you remember my post from Friday we had a snow fall warning for our city... well nothing happened... we got it today instead! We got the wind they said, and the blowing snow but thank goodness we didn't get too much of the white stuff, or at least not here in our end of the city where I live!
We got just enough to cover the roads and the rooftops of the houses. I know we'll lots more later, but for now this will do...
Hubby also managed to redo our Christmas lights on Friday, we had such lovely weather, so he replaced all of them and actually rehung them all. We keep our lights on the house all year long, and just change out the bulbs as they become worn out or broken. However, this past spring/summer we had a really nasty hail storm that did a lot of damage to the garden and the lights, not so much the house, thank goodness.... and becuase of that he placed them in a different spot, a little lower and more protected.
Anyways, we did a test lighting tonight and here is our house all dressed up and ready for the holidays! We won't be actually turning them on regularly each night till Dec. 6th.
