You Are Going To Love This!

I have one very Lucky Girlfriend! And aren't we so lucky to share this at our Sewing Day last Tuesday! Gwen's Best Friend bought her this fabulous pic for her - read on and enjoy!

Here is a some work of the Earth from Above by Yann Arthus-Bertrand! - spectacular! The above I took at Gwen's place with my new camera - no flash required, so how great is that! These are wonderful cotton fabrics drying in the sun, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India!
See those tiny figures and their shadows in the lower left-hand corner!

This one I have snuck from the Internet! To see more of Yann's wonderful work, Google Images for Yann Arthus-Bertrand. I have spent literally hours browsing - great pain-killer on this very chilly day! There is so much written and pictorial interest surrounding this wonderful artist, so please have a little look if you are that way inclined.

This week has slipped by with no production - again! - lots of inspiration there though! I have a big black cloud hanging over my head in the way of medical bills - it is enough putting up with the inconvenience of being unwell, but worse still trying to sort out the red tape, lol! Maybe I will bite the bullet now and have a little think in the Sewing Studio tomorrow! Happy weekend everyone!

PS - oh, I am going for careful, gentle little drives in the car - I feel like a bird set free - I promise I will be extra careful!

One day at a time Lurline, just take it easy and enjoy spreading your wings just a wee bit.

Be gentle with yourself Lurline. Don't apply any extra pressure on yourself. Time is a great healer for everything not only recovery from surgery. I am sure we are sent worries to make us stronger in the long run but I know they never feel like that.
Hugs Deb

Deb said...

Oh Lurline, so sorry to hear that you are unwell again. And I sympathise with the medical bills - all that paperwork drives me insane! Take care.

you deserve it
medical red tape is just not fun
hope it all works out soon for you

What wonderful pictures! I'm glad you're taking careful, small trips in the car. Medical bills are such a pain, aren't they? Trying to sort them out and all that. And paying! Ugh! Hope it all works out. And that you get better soon. Hope you manage some sewing to cheer yourself up!

Glad you are starting to get out and about. Yes, do take care and don't overdo!

Hoping for some sunshine in your life to chase away those black clouds.

One of the wonderful things about the computer is that you can visit so many places without leaving the comfort of your home.
Enjoy the travels, and I continue to keep you in my prayers.

Be careful and beautiful days ahead.


Sometimes going to the sewing room is good--it can help your "mind" mend and rest while you are thinking about the next project or sorting through the fabrics and coming up with a new combo of colors or patterns---at least it always helps me!!!!
Best wishes---lots of hugs, Di
