This will be rather chatty about a few different things. First, there is the update on Simple Gifts, a design by Karen Kahle.
Topic 2 ~ With the death of Muhammad Ali I was reminded of the time my deceased husband Gary told me about meeting him at an airport. It was during the time Gary was catching red eye flights between California and Maryland for his employment with IBM.
Gary said Ali was kneeling down talking to a child and was very gentle and gracious to him and parents. Ali even took the time to shake Gary's hand and they exchanged conversation.
Ali was on top of the world at that time and in the beginning of his career I wasn't fond of his arrogance and bragging. Soon I realized that was part of the psychological game playing with his opponents. Plus Ali did have the speed, talent and long arm reach to back it up. And, well, you must admit he was a 'pretty' man. In this reflection back to that time it was fun to remember bets that Gary and I would have on who was going to win. Rest in peace Ali.
Topic 3 ~ As all of you who read me on a regular basis know, I've always something planned 'for the next one on the frame'. Think I know what it is but not going to share that information just yet. After all, I've Simple Gifts to finish and bind first. Then will go back to my grandson's rug for a while. ..... .....
BUT, will also start a new one to work on at the same time and it won't be one from my stash. That is just a teaser for now to keep you all checking back. Don't bother to bait me with free wool or patterns because I'm not squealing. You'll just have to wait and see.
Besides, Tuesday the Sears service man will arrive and if weather is good I'll be cutting my field of weeds.
Have a great evening everyone.
