"Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day
is the rest we take between two deep breaths."
I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Labor Day weekend and the end of summer. Well it is the end for some of you but today it was about 105 here. We do not see fall here in So. California until the end of October. We did relax and have a cook out one day but mostly I spent stitching. I can't show you one piece that I was happy to finish the stitching part (it was mostly black and I got a little tired of it) it is for a exchange.
Sunday evening a friend who volunteers at the Hollywood Bowl had 2 tickets and asked me to go with her. At the end of the season they give them two as a thank you. It is usually for the movie night. This year it was Movie Trivia hosted by Alex Trebek from Jeaopardy. He looked so handsome in his white dinner jacket. When we arrived we were each given three glow sticks in red, green and blue. Alex would give us clues about the next film clip and they would give us three choices on the screen each in a different color. We would hold up the glow stick to the answer we thought was right. It was so pretty to see thousands of glow sticks. After they would show a clip from the movie and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra would play the music to the exact beat as the movie. It really was a delightful evening. If you are not familiar with the Hollywood Bowl, it is hidden in the hills of Hollywood. Everyone comes with a picnic dinner with wine and such and enjoys a concert or performer under the stars.
This shows how is hidden the hills.
As we were waiting for it to start the sky got a little dark and suddenly this rainbow appeared.
In October I will be attending the Stitching Retreat in New Hampshire. I am trying to make a set of Halloween stitching accessories to take with me. This is all I have stitched so far.
I am trying to make a biscornu, scissor fob, and may be a needle book. I have the cutest new pair of scissors to make a fob for. I will show you those when I get the fob done. Meantime I have another exchange piece to finish.
Have you all been busy packing away all your white shoes, purses and pants now that Labor Day is over. Being born in Virginia from a very eastern family I grew up with no white after Labor Day. Here in California it is mostly unheard of. Especially since we are still in the 100 degrees and will be for awhile. Do you stop wearing white now?
Always keep love in your stitches,
