Sunday Hunt…


It was another challenging week on the Scavenger Hunt…at least it was for me.  But I managed to get them all in.  And here they are:

Crossed:  I have been doing counted cross stitch for quite a few years now.  Here is a shot of one of my samplers completed in 1999.  I do finish a project occasionally.  This one was done, I thought, but at the very bottom of the sampler are four or five stitches that I forgot to cross (not shown here.)  I didn’t notice it until after it was framed.  Oh, well…


A Glimpse:  Here is a look into the Brookfield, Massachusetts town cemetery.  Isn’t this entry arch beautiful?  It is one of my favorite cemeteries to wander around in on a beautiful fall day
 as it is full of maples.


Handwritten:  I have terrible handwriting but manage to make it legible enough here.  This is one of my favorite quotes from Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows.  I will let you know here that we are off in a few days to travel the world again.  That’s what gave me the inspiration for this photo.  I might have time to post one more time before we leave but I have laundry and packing to look forward to so I might not be spending a lot of time with my camera and the computer.



Bliss:  Every morning my bliss comes in the form of organic, fair trade, dark roast coffee except when we’re on the road when I will drink any coffee as long as it contains caffeine.


Gray:  Here’s my grey Baggallini.  I love this bag!  I love its jaunty hot pink lining.  I love Baggallinis in general and carry nothing else these days.  I own one in each size for different occasions.  They never wear out and they keep me organized.  Well, sort of...  So here’s to my grey Baggallini!

The image of the coffee is stunning! So clean and bright! I also really like the cross stitch photo. I love cross stitch and always have several projects going. I can totally relate to discovering a few stitches are missing once its been framed or sewn into a pillow. The things that drive us crazy but no one else would ever notice!

Oh, I love the cross-stitch. I used to cross-stitch but now I embroider. It's easier. I also love the arch.

I used to do crosstitch BC (before kids) over 30 years ago. I found it very relaxing. This is beautiful work.
Love your handwritten idea!
That cemetery gate is pretty impressive. It looks like you should be entering a palace or something. :)
Thanks for your visit!

the image of that arch is indeed beautiful, but my favorite is the coffee. you've done with the coffee. you made it so artsy!!

You nailed it on each and every picture. I believe my last effort at cross-stitch was high school (still have it stashed somewhere) and my sister (who travels a lot) introduced me to Baggallini purses - I like the size of your gray one. But I believe my favorite is your handwritten - perfectly executed.
