This past weekend was a lovely, but busy three day mini-vacation. We celebrated our thirtieth wedding anniversary (oh my goddess, I can't believe it is that long!) on the 31st which I commemorated with the above little stitch designed by Beth Twist at Heartstring Samplery (http://thetwistfamily.blogspot.com/). I made a little cushion with it to hang on the connubial couch. I love reading Beth's blog and her designs are wonderful.
However, before the anniversary I had other adventures. On Saturday an old friend, Ruby, brought a , now, new friend, Sabrina, to visit. We went out to lunch, visited a couple of the local metaphysical shops and then went back to Toadstool Condo for tea and lots of chatter. Sunday was spent finishing both the little anniversary cushion and the "At Pemberley" piece designed by The Sampler Girl. That will also be stitched into a cushion - I'm running out of wall space! In the evening I was off in the Strega-mobile to Miami to Ruby's home for a dedication ritual. A lovely evening, a lovely ritual.
Tomorrow night, tarot reading for a few of the girls from school - everyone has love issues, sigh! I only have another week and I will graduate, then just studying for my state board in about a month. I'm definitely ready to finish although I will miss being with everyone I've grown close to over the last nine months.
As for this week - more magic, mayhem and a little potion brewing then off to the hair show in Orlando, another three day weekend!
And that is what's happening at Toadstool Condo!
