My trip is coming up real soon , less than two weeks away now and in preparation for that trip I have made myself some cozy pj's in flannel . I won't have Bill to keep me warm and I am such a cold ol gal ;-) My sisters and my Mom are really getting excited now and we are down to trying to decide what we need to pack . I did go out and buy a new jacket which is weather proof and has a hood for those showers we are most likely to encounter while in Scotland and Ireland . Want to see a picture of my pj's , they still need buttons , I have tons of buttons but none that will work here :-(
I am also working on my mystery quilt by Kaaren of the Painted Quilt , have started the long process of cutting the strips for the braid border , lots more to go for sure but this had to be set aside so those pj's could be completed .
I have had a few inquiries as to whether there would be a postcard swap in the near future , well yes there will be but I will need to schedule it for when I return in early October . If you wish to give me your name and address etc . now that will be fine but I will not be sending out partners names until after my little trip . It takes me a fair amount of time to set this up and I simply do not have that time right now but in the mean time you can start your postcards to send out lets say by the 20 of October . If you are real smart and get it made now I will get things set up as quickly as I can and they can be in the mail even earlier . Lets make the theme whatever suits your fancy , it can be fall or whatever creative idea you might have . I will need your mailing address , your email address and your blog address if you have one . I would really appreciate this info in a form I can cut and paste , it saves me a ton of time, thanks .
And now for a couple of nature photos I have recenty taken , this is one of my favorite roads to travel on so peaceful and the trees draping over the road way is a lovely canopy . This is pretty during each season of the year .
Along this road way I came across this fungus growing in an old tree trunk and couldn't resist taking the photo.
a little closer view
I find these facinating , the simpliest things make me happy .
This was also growing along that road way and I used my macro setting to take this picture , the bees were loving these bright yellow flowers . They are fairly tall plants ad I have no clue what they are ??
Off now to start on my border that comes before the braid , I will update you later as to my progress , oh yes I did go with the churn dash blocks for the corner stones which I am quite pleased with . See you later and thanks for stopping by , I will try to be a better blogger .
