I was looking at photos on my camera and realized that I’ve taken a lot recently but I hadn’t posted any here. So today what we have on tap is This That and the Other - a mash-up or a mixed bag or whatever you want to call it.
First, a few of photos from our visit to the Chinese Lantern Festival. I saw the advertisement and immediately put it on my list of things to do before they go away. If you know anything about me, you know I love twinkling lights, fairy lights, Christmas lights, lantern lights – and well, these were extra special.
Then there’s this:
It was my mom’s but before that it was my great aunt’s. It was built on August 6, 1914 – over 100 years ago. It’s in really rough shape so I’m not sure that it will ever sew again but the base is nice, so we might do something with it – a table perhaps.
The following was unplanned. I got a notion and dove right in. Sort of like Dug the dog from the Disney movie UP, “Squirrel!”
It’s a work in progress but I continue to document its evolution so there will be additional photos as time goes on.
On Saturday, I was on my hands and knees with a different project altogether. It was like putting together a puzzle without a picture to go by and no idea how to go about it. I actually had to look up a mathematical formula. My brain got tired! More on this in the weeks to come – I hope.
And finally, this little guy. Put the last stitch in just a few minutes ago.
And that is that. I hope all is well in your little corner of the world. Thanks for reading!
