It is the day 17 start only a week and a couple of days late.   Honest I did start on March 17.

Here is another picture.

I had another project planned but somehow the purple robes of a wizard did not fit into the green idea of St Patrick’s Day and I changed my plans.  There is more progress but the darn phone crashed so the picture will have to wait!

Dreams and Clouds

Once upon a time there was a little line that grew and soared among the clouds.  He grew and stretched his wings.  He danced with the stars, chased the raindrops over the hills and disappeared along the milky way.

He hid on the moon and etched out a bed, stars and clouds covered his slumbering form.  A finger of sunlight tickled his nose,  kissed his cheeks and

He woke up to soar among the clouds and stars again!

J is for Joy

J is  for joy.  And it took me a while to figure this out.   I asked my friends and the one word that every one said was JOY.  So I pondered and tried hard to think of other words: jump, junior, jello, janitor… and I kept coming back to JOY.

JOY is the birth of a new morning;  the reds, the yellows, the pinks of the sun peeking its way through the eastern sky.  JOY is the blaze of color of a promise of a new beginning, it is hope, it is peace.

 

JOY is the start of a new project, from the beginning: IMG_0559 (1)

JOY is friendship, JOY is family.  JOY is love; it is whatever makes you happy.  So take what ever makes you happy and call it

JOY 

 

 

C is for Cross stitch

Cis  for CROSS STITCH ,  and thank you Jacqeline  for the idea!!  Today I am taking the fork in the road from my story.  But my reasoning is that CROSS STITCH just as important to my writing as any other distraction.  I can drift off and think about the next perplexing problem that Jake is experiencing as I stitch away.  It calms me down except when the frog comes to visit and his distinctive call of  “RIP IT RIP IT”  is heard and then I do get frustrated.

I have many projects and ufos (unfinished projects).  A few that I have posted here and there are more that have not made it onto the internet.   but yes CROSS STITCH is a very big part of my life.

This one is a free design from DragonDreams I follow her on Facebook  and I just love her designs.   I worked it on 16 count aida and it  is actually a finish for me !  The Little Line story on the other pages I have been posting is a loved project of mine as well. It is a design called Magic Dragon designed by Joan Elliott who has a site here too!

With CROSS STITCH  I can go on forever but…I won’t  Enjoy!!
