Eight Years Ago Today ...

As I'm listening to the same radio station today (KDKA)as I was that day eight years ago, I can't help but remember what I was doing when I first heard about the horrors that happened that day. It's a day that I hope none of us will ever forget.

We can make it a "national day of service" as our president wishes, but I would really prefer to simply making it a "national day of mourning" or a "national day of let's just all get along".
Wouldn't that be wonderful if the entire world would agree to not fight with ANYONE for one day?

On a much different and happier note, I'm still finishing up the orders but I just couldn't help myself with this new design that I've bouncing about in my head. I just had to do something about it before the ideas moved on to something else.
So the wool was flying last night as I cut and snipped and arranged and I finally came up with this .......

Oh, I'm so pleased with how this tablerunner is going to turn out. The plaid wool that I'll used for his shirt is perrrrrrrfect. I plan to use a darker orange on that tall pumpkin and I'll overdye the wool that I'm using for his face so that it's a bit darker too but I'm just bursting with excitement to get started on the stitching part of this. I plan lots of details with spiders, crows, fall leaves and of course Sunflowers!

Also, for you Ebay customers, in the next few days, I'll be listing quite a few of my things that I"ve had packed away. I'll list them as "BUY IT NOW" and I promise, they will be CHEAP! CHEAP! Be sure to watch HERE for the listings. I'm hoping that they sell FAST so be sure to watch for bargains. Included will be quite a few fall/halloween things that I made last year and never got around to Ebay listing.
I have too much accumulated and need to clear out. It's just the start of my goal of becoming a bit more organized in this house.
Happy Day everyone!

I can't wait to see the scarecrow all stitched up. It will look grand. I love anything fall. So I can't wait to see what you list also.
