New Canvas Embroidery, Rocks, Balcony

Things are good. My tooth is slowly getting better...with the help of antibiotics. After going every day to the dentist for a week, the Dentist finally decided that enough was enough and gave me a prescription. This didn't really come as a shock; this is normally how my teeth problems are solved.

Not that I've had the opportunity much to lay around on the balcony, but one day this week was nice and warm and I got a chance to enjoy the summer like I want it to be! The only time I seem to read is when I'm laying around on the balcony. Needless to say, there hasn't been alot of reading going on this summer.

My rocks will be going into the polishing phase this afternoon. I am very pleased with the pre-work. I think they will turn out very nice. Abby Cat will be very happy when the polishing phase starts because the machine runs quieter and I'll be able to leave the door open to "her" room at night. No, she doesn't always go into the room where the machine is BUT she thinks she needs to just because the door is suddenly closed!

I've been working on the new canvas piece regularly. The size is really good for my regular sitting position...something that is very important!

I am really enjoying this canvas piece. It goes quickly, the colors are wonderful and the "3D" affect is awesome.

Hey lots of progress on your piece and I think you need to be reading more often....of course, I'd be sleeping....

Your new canvas piece is great! I especially love the TAST cast on example! Totally fabulous! It's fun to watch the rocks progress...and think about the tumbler out in the garage back in Slippery Rock.

Steve and I went to Mom and Dad's last weekend for a whirlwind, 24 hour visit. While there we saw Grandma, of course, and then went up to the old cemetery on this hill to collect a few epitaphs. It was a great trip.
