However, it won't be a direct hit to our area. What we are concerned with is the wind. One tree knocks over a power line close to us and we could be without power for a day or so. (I was here when Irene came through [Mike was overseas] and we were without power for five days.) And it has been raining here literally all day. Poor little dogs hate it. Their muppety little paws just soak up water like sponges.
So what have I been doing to amuse myself tonight? Knitting, watching a movie (Tequila Sunrise-- a pretty decent movie for being twenty years old, although I've now heard enough light jazz sax music to last for quite a while), and surfing the internet, where I stumbled onto a great photo-editing site to replace the now-defunct Piknick (sp?). The site is PicMonkey and I found it thanks to Green Apples. I love her blog. She sews much of her own wardrobe, and her blog details her projects and the mods she makes. She also details a lot of her daily wardrobe, which gives the reader an idea of how the patterns she chooses work in real life. Definitely worth checking out!
Okay, so here are the photos I manipulated!
|It is hard to tell, but there is a wash over this. I meant the borders to pick up on the rose bushes behind me.|
|Love this effect, especially the fake film numbering up top!|
|Isn't the edging fun? It is called "craft scissors" and they have several different types.|
