...time for a bit of red...

Lots to do today....

...and still feeling drained after yesterday's marathon..

...but practice went well, and I'm confident that the concert will be marvelous!


Evenings are short and dark, and that means (well, to ME anyway)...

...that it's time to stitch some red :-)


Harrogate is looming, but, before that, I've got anothet two magazine projects to complete!


Sneaky peek at my worktable.....



I LOVE picking out all the threads for projects!

..and .....remember this little chap?




Well, he's got these for company now...



(should have a plan by the end of today :-o)




...and another chicken is being born.


I will indulge in a nice cup of tea later....

...with a slice of the Kugelhopf that I baked yesterday...

....lots of butter too!

Naughty.....but Yummy!

We are practicing for our choir's Christmas concerts, too, but on Wednesdays. Our concert dates are the same.

Red sounds and looks good.I am afraid we are geting hotter here. I like fires and cooler weather.

Recently I've begun to adore red. I even found a fun pair of red shoes at a local consignment shop -- and just LOVE wearing them! Love the warmth of the color, in all its shades.

Lovely shades of red Chris. I love the mixture of techniques.

Yes, rich warm colours seem the right things to be concentrating on in the winter months!
