Hey, how was your day? Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around. Found myself a fun costume.
I wasn’t ready to do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.
My ribs are showing. You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby. LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST…. I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.
I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on. I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material
Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you. Multi-tasking at its best. You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits. They are rather clever. The party is just getting underway. Will go and be social. Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.
Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me. Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another. I love the connection we share. You are all the best!!!
Here is looking at you… “wink”
Fabric art, continued.
I was happy to learn today that the 2018 PL Calendars are here, and now available. After perusing the pages, I can’t wait to begin the new year. Plan ahead, if you are wanting to be able to send them to friends, Let us know how many you would like put away for you. Please note that the cost has been made the same all across North America. $3.00
Day of Peace ceremony will be November 1.st. 10 a.m
Let us take today’s lesson, Express Yourself Cheerfully, as a thought to carry forward into the whole week.
Remember as we begin a new week, that our relationships and the situations around us, reflect our own hearts and actions, like a mirror. When we change our surroundings, it will bring about changes for us personally too.
Happy week ahead.

Sometimes, you decide to cut out a hexagon. You have an idea. But before you can really get carried away, your creative self goes to work… and yes, you do hexagons, but this is what you end up with.
There is another step or two that followed, but the picture may or may not be completed, so… I leave you with the above. I wanted fall colours, and I’ve done a flower. We will have to wait to see what comes next.
Sometimes, we have to know when to stop, take a step back, and wait.
Happy week-end everyone!
Happiness is finding that the coloured hook and loop tape is on sale, buy 1 and get 2 free. I had not seen coloured hook and loop before, so I was for sure, having a few. Especially they were in the fall colours I was on the hunt for.
Took me awhile but I finally found the fat quarters, and when I did, I forgave the shop for hiding way in the back. They were all half price. I managed to find enough quarters in the colours I was wanting.
I’m even going to follow the “rules” and launder the pieces first before I start to cut them up and heat bond them. I am showing you the raw pieces, before I play with them. Hopefully I will eventually show you the end product. I have no idea what I will do with the tape, but the possibilities are endless.
I’ve also begun to work on the art/junk journals again .. fall is in the air, I always get a nudge from Mother Nature at this time of year, the vibrant colours she splashes all around us is enticing. Even the rows of golden rod and mellow yellows that dot the fields along the highways call out to me.
The unbelievable thrill of seeing the 1000 shades of orange/reds that wave from the hardwood trees that line the road, exhilarates.
My stash is slowly taking on the colour theme that I will work with. Yes I am excited at the pending creativity that is awake and churning to get going… anyone else out there feeling that zing that is floating around in the ethers of the bright fall days. Not to mention the crisp night breezes that lull us to sleep.
It has been a super great Thursday … hello Friday, I’m ready for you.
May the happiness of the season, float effortlessly your way. Appreciate and enjoy this season of harvest.
