I picked up Halloween Cove again this past week and spent some serious time with it for a change. I'd neglected this one recently and getting back to it was so much fun! I really love stitching on this one and will miss it when I'm done which BTW should be very soon. I have one pumpkin left to stitch and after that what's left is one more spider web, the longstitching on the one spider and the fence in front of the one house. Not much at all! I also have a small repair on the ship. Somehow I managed to stitch an extra row on the hull. I discovered it when I went to do the long stitching on the sails and things didn't quite match up as I expected them to. How did I manage that? Who knows! That's what happens when you stitch when you're tired or when I'm too busy talking which is what often happens on Tuesday night stitching.
Speaking of which, we resumed our weekly SAL this past week at our new location. We're now stitching in a church hall not far from our previous spot. Having a larger area to meet in has resulted in allowing more people to join in the fun. We were running out of room at the bookstore and had to cut off any new people who wanted to join. Now we have lots of room in which to set up additional tables and chairs. After all, they can serve church suppers in the hall, right? So of course they can handle us! As a result we had I think it was 6 new additions including one brave male! Welcome to all the newbies and we hope we haven't scared you off and you continue to join us. The noise level for awhile was enough to scare anyone off, lol!
It's been a pretty soggy week around here. Any of you living on the eastern seaboard will understand that. We caught the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole on Thursday and ended up with some pretty serious rainfall. Although we didn't have the severe flooding that the eastern US did, many of my friends and coworkers ended up with flooded basements. Either the sump pump couldn't handle the volumes of water or a loss of power in some areas rendered them useless. We were so fortunate to have been spared. You'd never know what was coming after the beautiful sunset we had the night before. What's the saying....Red sky at night, sailors delight? Take a look!
Now I'm off to pack an overnight bag. I'm spending the night in a luxury hotel. No, I'm kidding! I'm spending the night at the sleep clinic in one of the Ottawa hospitals. Isn't that exciting....not!
Seems I might have sleep apnea. That would explain why I'm tired all the time. But what are the chances I'm going to sleep well tonight, all wired up?! Wish me luck!
