I finished the Bent Creek snowman for the most part. I changed a few colors around .I haven't decided for sure whether or not to use cross stitches for the snowflakes or snowflake sequins. I better decide soon because I am really wanting to get this done so I can move on to something else.
Edgar's fog and theatre pictures reminded me of some we had taken so I thought I would post those. The fog picture was taken over Lake Taneycomo while we were at the Branson Landing.The fog had been thicker and looked really cool but by the time we decided to take a picture and walk down to the car to get the camera, it was starting to dissipate. I used to spend a lot of time in that area when I was a little girl. The Branson Landing shopping center wasn't there and there were some summer cabins down there and people used to go fishing there a lot. The cabins are long gone. I remember that my dad helped with the demolition of some of those .I was in kindergarten then I think and I remember finding someone's toothbrush and picking up rocks and fossils. It was a lot different back then.
This is a picture of the Lander's Theatre which is now houses the Springfield Little Theatre. A lot of people still refer to it as the Lander's . There are all kinds of stories that surround that old building. We were in there one day and was allowed to have an unguided tour. There used to be an elevator in there and it was closed when there had been a fire and hasn't been used in many many years. Now here is something that will make the hair on the back of your neck raise. At the time we were there they were getting ready to put on a production of 'The Diary of Anne Frank' and were getting the Nazi costumes ready in the sewing room upstairs.Just outside of that sewing room is where the old elevator shaft was and they now use it for a closet.There is a whole bunch of stuff in there and they seemed to never throw anything away. We found a stack of very old newspapers and started looking at them.One of them we found was had a story of the Nazi invasion on Austria on the front page.When we looked at the date of the paper it had the exact same day on it as when we were there, except of course for the year. We had the hair on our necks and armed raised up and had chills and we decided we were done with the tour. I would sware on a stack of bibles that it is true! One of the strangest things that has ever happened in my life for sure. We told the girl at the ticket office about it and she wouldn't believe it until my husband went back up the stairs and got the paper and showed it to her. She jokingly asked her boss when her shift was over.LOL!
Well I shall run along for now.Thank you for the comments, especially about the ones about my mom. You all are just so sweet!
'Til next time, happy stitching!
