Stitching, Sunsets and Stripes... Oh My!

Its been a busy/hectic week (again!) I ended up teaching Taekwon-Do two nights in a row this week which left me with no stitching time the first half of the week.  I was completely drained by Wednesday and crashed for a good 4 hours.  I have found some stitching time here and there.


Here is where Art Deco Spirits stands as of this evening.  Its a long weekend so I have three days of stitching coming my way!  I'll be sharing part of this weekend with Bonnie, we're going to stitch while "the boys" (her hubby and my other half) watch movies and play video games.

We have had some fantastic sunsets the last two weeks!  I wanted to share a few of the shots from my property.

The Village from my driveway

Looking out back

The Village looking over my fence

This was tonight and I saw this spectacular red ray of light just shining down!  Wonder what it was shining over?


Also I forgot I had taken some pictures of Hunter lately, he had curled up in the sun on my red comforter that was draped on the floor.  He was just so adorable, you'd think I had set him up in a little studio!

Its the end of the week which means its time for another PhotoHunt!  This week's theme is stripes!

Before I looked up this week's theme I had taken a picture of the new slippers/socks I had just bought for puttering around the house.  They were so cute and a fantastic bargain ($2) that I picked up two pairs!  I find when my feet get cold the rest of me is cold, and these would fit the bill nicely!

I don't think I've ever seen such glorious sunsets, Dani--you really captured them beautifully. Love to see the photo of your Halloween kitty, too (I am a huge black cat lover!)... Your slippers look like they'll keep you nice and toasty as you stitch away these coming winter nights :)
