Do you remember when I was making these with my hand dyed fabric samples?
The other day while I was at Home Depot, I was given this by the Glidden Representative.
We spent a couple of days down on the beach. I like collecting images as much as shell fragments.
A large piece of drift wood.
Cool looking barnacles and moss on old dock pieces.
And my shells all piled together.
On the way home we stopped by The Screen Door Restaurant, on James Island, for some yummy food. Everything on the menu sounded terrific. I opted for chicken and waffle with peach molasses. Oh my, was it delicious. Hubby got shrimp and Gechee boy grits. I will try them next time as the texture was more coarse like riced-potatoes. I'm not fond of the usual way you get grits, but these were good.
And for the creative side of things:
3 table runners have bindings done and are ready for gift giving.
Mondo bag #1 got a proper strap.
Mondo bag #2 got a little reworking. I took the bottom seam apart far enough to put binding on each seam so it can now be turned to either side and used. I then attached the straps.
I put bindings on the 8 stitch outs I did so they can be used as mug rugs, or pot holders. They would even be good for under a plant that might get over watered.
And for my Grandkids, some pillowcases.
These were all done with each kids favorite colors.
In looking over my intention list for November, I see that I completed many of my intentions. I also have added and completed several items. But, alas, there are quite a few that are still in the unfinished stage.
That's what life's all about, isn't it? You choose what you intend to focus on. Your month unfolds. You get some things accomplished. You do things that weren't even on your mind at the beginning of the month. You realize time has passed and important things have been accomplished and those that weren't, were not as important as you may have thought. You make new decisions for your next month, and move forward. And that's just the way it goes for me. How about you?
May God bless you with His Peace as we approach Christmas.
