Busy, Busy, But Not Creating

A simple reminder of what it is I'm supposed to be doing today, but have yet to accomplish.  I spent most of today on the prowl for a cherry pitter and not just any cherry pitter but THIS cherry pitter. I finally purchased it at Amazon this afternoon after not being able to locate said beast locally.

Additionally after a very long search I was also able to order a part for my kitchen aide mixer that had unceremoniously broke.  I was very upset when I was told that my mixer was not fixable, more from the stand point that I had used it maybe a half dozen times but also from a green point of view... if you don't want appliances going into landfills then build appliances that can be repaired!

This little gizmo (called a blender coupler) stands between me and a smoothie, and it shall arrive sometime this week!  Now to purchase the face plate for my Champion Juicer, that hubs broke, and I'm set for a summer of smoothies and fresh juice.

I'm off to write and then maybe, just maybe stitch something this evening!

Solo Show Installed

For some reason I forgot to take a photo of the entire display, will try to remember to do so when I take the show down the end of January 2012.  Over all I'm very happy with the way the pieces look, I have to give credit to Diane Hall for hanging the pieces, I would have hung them in a straigh line and well that's boring!

Coneflower No. 2

Coral Coneflower it needs something what??? I'm debating a grain bin or maybe some bison, hmmm how about some bison trapped in a grain bin???? Now that WOULD be the statement that some are dyeing for me to make ;-)
