Really! and sorry I couldn’t resist that…but it really described my visit to the Pacific Northwest. I think that I have finally caught up on my sleep by now.
See I can fall asleep with no problem at all, but when I wake up during the night either by a noise, having to go to the bathroom or missing my cats…well then I can’t get back to sleep. Toss and turn, read a little, check out the iPad, email and Facebook and hope that I will be able to get some more shuteye sooner or later. I am thinking about the class…did I forget anything? will they like the stitches? will they like the piece? will they struggle with what goes in the piece? Then after class was over, it was how much work that is waiting for me when I get home!
This picture was taken at Pikes Marketplace looking through the windows loaded with raindrops onto Puget Sound. To the left is the Seattle Great Wheel or reaaly just a ferris wheel as I would call it. It rained quite a bit while I was there, and even though I would have loved to have seen blue skies and sunshine…the pitter patter of raindrops was really music to my ears. Since it really never rains in Southern California!
So why was I in Seattle? To teach Welcome by Annie Lane at My Sisters Place! Thank you to all the stitchers that took the class, to Dorothy and Tom for wining and dining me in style and especially to Donnelle and Rick for granting my wish of taking in some sights, sharing lots of laughs and a glass of wine or two.
This completes my whirlwind schedule as I traveled to the 4 corners of the US and more…lets see Chicago to Dallas to Boston to Wilton to Atlanta to Phoenix to Seattle. And the cats are still speaking to me!
The World Series is over, tomorrow is Halloween and boy do I have lots of stitching to do! Breakfast at The Cottage, a trip to see Brenda Hart at A Stitch in Time on Saturday…
AlleyCat sends her best meows! and until next time…keep on stitching
