What's up?

Greetings folks.  Not having computer access whenever you want it has created more free time.  Amazing how much time we spend on devices, and I'm still in the dark ages without a cell phone. 
 
Anyway, while I was watching Raymond reruns, I worked up a design for Fall, don't want to stitch it, but thought you might.  I enjoy charting something different but if it's not a sampler or santa I just don't want it.  That's why I gave away all my pears.  I pictured a bright moon and leaves on a very dark linen.  It needs a little tweaking and when I pulled colors, I chose bright autumn.
Too much?  Bright leaves, bright moon, bright pumpkins, all else black.  There won't be a model to view and if you like it and want to stitch it, your fabric could be a blank canvas for your favorite fall shades.  I'll have it for you over the weekend.  I have no idea why I enjoy charting but not the result.  Odd duck ain't I?  It's like inventing a recipe without cooking it - could be good, could be yucko. 
So what else have I been up to? 
 
Stuffing hot peppers with cooked sausage and rice for the freezer.  The peppers come out better if I leave them raw, and I add the spaghetti sauce when I bake them.
 
A little bird watching.
And some landscaper watching.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For two days.
 
 
No car decision.  No computer repair.  Hope to resolve those issues soon.  Sure I will.
 
Missing a lot of posts and updates, but not the crap on Facebook.  Ever since Harry Reid admitted to CNN that he lied on the Senate floor about Romney and Koch, I have Snopes.com'd and Politifact.com'd everything I've seen.  Was surprised that more than half of the posts are fabricated or distorted.  More surprised at the number of people that pass it on and never check the facts.  That, I do not miss. 
 
If you'd like to take a shot at the untested chart, check back this weekend.
 
Hope you're having a nice week!

Darling chart, Marly--thank you! And, oh, I wouldn't have gotten much stitching (or anything else!) done with a landscaper like him around the yard. I wonder if he works within a 60 mile radius :)

Thanks for the chart. Looks like fun. Well your landscaper could come on over and do some work for me! I guess I would have been doing a lot of landscaper watching!

Yowza! That certainly is easy on the eyes. I have plenty of landscaping to do.

I'd like to have Mr. Landscaper in my back yard or anywhere else! Thanks for keeping your readers entertained, and the beautiful charts.

Looking forward to your chart this weekend! I think it be easily personalized with fall colors depending on the stitcher's preferences. Hmmm...nice landscaper.

I love that little chart. I don't think it is strange, I think you are just very creative. I love to stitch, but I don't really think I am being creative, only a little by changing the colors, etc.

Truus said...

And I do love the landscaper too and love the colors of the peppers.
Have a great weekend

Hah! While everyone loves the new chart and the landscaper, I'm interested in the hot peppers! We had this as an appetizer at Colao's in Erie a few weeks ago and just loved them.

I love the chart...

Karen Martinsen said...

I am one of those that does not have a smart phone and don't want one.
Being on the computer because of my 'business' is more than enough for me - and I don't deal or like the FB drama either. There's enough in this world to deal with than that.
Oh my - how on earth did you get such 'great' pictures of your LANDSCAPER! lol He's gorgeous!!!
Your chart is wonderful and I'm sure those that do this will want it for sure.
Blessings
Karen

Maggee said...

Yeah, yeah.. nice pattern...snopes dot com is vital, yeah...Those peppers look pretty good. Have never done that before, so might try it...I think everyone would like that. The rice is cooked too? The landscaper sort of looks like George Clooney, dontcha think? Snip out the ponytail... yeah, I can see that... He was posing, right?? Hugs!
