Almost Forgot!

Seems I need to post on the first of each month and well, it slipped my mind.

How I wish I were snowed in at the moment. I like cold so much better than blazing hot! And then here is the overall with this one finished! It is filling in so quickly. 

Told you I just couldn't handle the light colored Sunday - so here's the re-do! Darker and bolder - more to my taste this way. Think my next day tag will be red.

I meant after Monday! I was shocked how closely the color called Halloween Eve (or Night - can't remember) matched Just Rust by CC. You almost can't tell the difference.

I've started on The Fourth and thought my purple polka dots would stand out on a Christmas Red background - seems it is waaayyyy more subtle than I intended. But, when it is placed with the other tags - it looks smashing. It will take me a another day or two until it is ready for its reveal.

Found myself in Bowling Green, Oh over the weekend. After living all my life in eastern Ohio - going up there seemed flat. But, watching storms come into the area was awesome. Then yesterday found us trimming trees and mowing the yard. Oh, and going to a child's birthday party - my first cousin twice removed for those with genealogy reference.

This weekend will find us attending a wedding reception for DH's step niece. I'm sure it will be an eventful time. That side of the family always keeps you on your toes! :)

Fireworks are going to be on the 4th and 6th in our area. I hope the rain holds off and we are able to watch. I love fireworks - it's the crowds that sometimes get to me. Our normal place for fireworks will be filled by the time we leave the reception so maybe we can get lucky and not have to walk for miles.

btw - today was the first time I have been able to return to exercising. My leg has finally stopped hurting. DH said the stitches look good although he thinks I may have a pucker. I can live with a tiny pucker on the back of my leg that I can't see - it has to be better than that ugly mole. Which the doctor called - both items removed were benign.

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July! And to those Canadians I know - Happy Canada Day!

I have this mini-gash on the back of my left leg . . as a result of a scoped knee, I got a Bakersd Cyst (which, the Dr said, is quite common) nly mine "migrated" down to my left calf and swelled like an SOB . . ended up in the hospital for four days, had it aspirated three times . . no pain meds and they used a horse hypo . . but I still asked to see what they took out . . it was pretty cool . . .ANyway, there was more liquid in the leg so the dr had to go in and, in his terms, "run his fingers around and wipe out whatever was left." I keep forgetting I have the scar until I do a twirl in front of a mirror. . . yours will be so much nicer . . mine includes the scar form the mole he removed.

You are right, SUNDAY looks better darker.

Love how the Tags are coming along! Still trying to decide if I want to get them all... I know I like Winter a lot better than summer. Glad the leg is doing better. Stitching will take your mind off it. lol

Catherine said...

I'm with you! I'd rather be snowed in than have to deal with heat. I need to live in Lapland : ) Your snowman piece is lovely!
