I want to mention to Faye , Rebecca, and others that are thinking of doing this piece, it is a lot of fun , BUT there are a lot of misprinted symbols of colors and placement. I ahve to keep referring to the picture of the piece to make sure I know where the mistakes are. Just so you know ahead of time. :) Any seasoned stitcher could figure them out easily though. Anyone working on it that has any questions , please feel free to email me. Just let me know in the subject line what it's about.
Here is just one of the few pictures I took of the lake itself. I was so entranced just sitting there and taking in the view and doing nothing that I didn't pick up the camera much.
I did have to take a snap of my two favorite guys though. Hubby Jack of course, wearing his silly hat a friend gave him at Halloween.....
...and the boy child , Alex , who is in desperate need of a hair cut but boks at me touching it! Is it the teen attitude coming through? LOL
Jack went walking the shoreline and found three bobbers , a couple of guys who flooded out the boat motor, and this little guy. He didn't stay on the blanket but about 20 seconds, long enough to take the picture. He was ready to head for the water again. Can't say as I blame him. If some big huge creature was carrying me around, I'd want to go home too!
Out around the lake area is this very old cemetery , that also has a section with several slaves buried in it. Being a genealogy and historian hobbyist, a stone caught my eye that we had to get a picture of. The base is one big solid piece and then splits where the angel is. I think when I go, I'd like to have one like it. Very peaceful looking don't you think?
***Yay! I just noticed that my headache is gone without medication or steriods!! ***
Yesterday Berit asked about the threads on Where My Heart Blooms. Sorry I wasn't clear the day before. There are two colors that walls of the house calls for . The symbols mark where they are to be stitched in different places , so there is the interesting color change through the stitching on the house.
Maggee also asked what issue the bell pull was in....It's in the Summer 1992 issue of Cross Stitch Sampler.
