Spooky Welcome it is!

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on the Stitchy Weekend. Many of you were absolutely right - you guys know me so well! We have eight winners:
Congratulations to all!

And here is my Spooky Welcome before
and today:
So long my friends,

America needs healing

That's a new theme in NaBloPoMo and I'm shocked that NaBloPoMo got sucked in.. The whole media cries after Micheal Brown and, to tell you the truth, I do not see anything racist about that event. Sure, we all need healing because of this and that, but many of us need to awake to the reality and do not believe everything media is saying. It's a well known fact that they will twist anything to get more ratings.

Before the shooting police had no idea about the robbery but the guilty mind of Michael made him charge the police. Just imagine 6'4" tall 300 lbs guy is running towards you, not just running but beating shit out of you. Reports are saying that:
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun
So, give me a break - it doesn't matter if Micheal was black and police man white.  Darren was on duty and Michael attacked him. Maybe parents should pay more attention to raising children and teaching them good values, the Ten Commandments would be a good start. It would save a lot of tears later.

Stitchy weekend

I love long weekends! Today is a Discovery Day in the Yukon and the end of a long weekend. It happened that this was also a third weekend of the month so I was hermitting and stitching. It was easy to do due to rain pouring from the sky from time to time. Did I tell you that I love sound of the rain? I do! As you can imagine it was a happy and relaxing weekend for me. I finished 'A Vulture's Welcome' and now I'm thinking - what's next?

I have quite large pile of wips... have a look here and try to guess - I'll have a surprise gift for you if your guess is right!

So long my friends,

Full moon - WIPocalypse time!

Would the super moon made the WIPocalypse super too? I was trying hard to do something super for this update. I stitched like there would be no tomorrow hoping that I can finish my Vulture's Welcome. I didn't but I have made great progress:

This month theme is the oldest and the newest WIP. The newest you can see above, the oldest... I'm not sure. I guess would be something from my crazy January challenge. For sure I know what is my oldest UFO - Sailboats and Seagulls! I started this some quarter of the century ago and as soon as I locate that piece I will finish it - cross my heart! This is where I left it off in January 2012:

There is not that much left to finish, I have no idea why it is taking me so long.

My stitchy to do list for the next week:
  • to finish Vulture's Welcome
  • to locate the oldest UFO and get over with it!
So long my friends,

Stitchy update

There is so many things going in my head that I had to take a break and what is the best way to clear your mind? Stitching of course! I have finished the 'Cancer', a freebie from Stitch Alley

The head wasn't very clear so I kept stitching... From WIP pale I chose 'A Vulture's Welcome'. This is  where I left it off last March:

And as of today:

It almost looks like I'm half done - who knows maybe I'll be able to finish it this month.

So long my friends,

I just came back from our Mary Kay Seminar, it was fantastic! I had fun, I'd learn a lot and I'm very excited about my new venture.

Something had made me reflect on life... Look on the pictures below. The first one was taken some 20 years ago and the second just last weekend. Two same persons on both pics believe it or not. In my opinion Lorraine (lady in blue on the first photo) looks better now than twenty years ago. I can not say the same of me... twenty years ago I looked awesome now I look like !?#@. The difference is that Lorraine is a full time Mary Kay director and I decided to pursue career in accounting... Can I reverse the damage I have done to myself? What are your thoughts?
So long my friends,
