Greetings. Having a good day? If you're reading this, you're still with us = a good day. I finally gave up on summer and changed the closet from lightweights to heavyweights, and while sorting through sandals, came across a very old fashioned looking comfortable pair that I never wear. I said to myself that I should hold on to them because I'll soon be the old lady with the sensible shoes in the nursing home. Don't know where that came from but it really threw me off balance for the rest of the day.
My attempt at the more subdued Santa is a toss up. This is the photo from the leaflet and my finish.
I used a design from #88 which is on the lighter linen since I will be changing many of those too. I like the softer look and think it will be even better on the darker linen. But to tell the truth, I like them both. I lightened the face from 407/356 to 3773/3772 and changed the beard from white to 3866. His coat is 3860/3023, gown 3045, boots 3787, and greenery 3011. I'll probably continue changing some of the colors in the others, but maybe not the entire piece. Or maybe the entire piece. Or not at all. Depends on the mood I guess.
Went to the chiropractor this morning and my left side trapezius and upper back is nothing but knots and much higher than the right side. He never felt such tightness and I have to submit to the torture of a myofascial release on Tuesday. She tried a few weeks ago and I couldn't take the pain so she stopped. The procedure is done by a therapist and they go deep into the muscle to separate the layers, releasing the trapped chemicals and knots. Yoi. Just press lightly and I see stars! Digging fingers deep into it ..... may not be able to handle it again. There isn't anything you can take beforehand topical or otherwise since it is so deep into the muscle and trigger points.
My sister's birthday was this week, she turned 75. This was a few years ago - I'm the one with the dyed hair and the empty plate that contained four different desserts. She's not worried about comfortable shoes. She thinks she's moving in here for me to take care of her.
Think again sista!!

That's all I got today. I had a few emails that are no-reply and I wanted to respond here, but can't find them now. I did have a few questions about the book I showed, and if you would like more information you can find it on Scarlet Letter's website here.
There are two dozen sweet potatoes in the oven. I buy them on sale, bake, peel, wrap individually with Saran, and freeze in a large freezer bag. I hope to have some time left to paint a few boxes. Really want to get them posted for sale soon.
Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.
Thanks for visiting!
