Charity Ball Report

I recently donated a necklace for the silent auction at the Junior Auxiliary Charity Ball in my hometown. As thanks, I received two tickets to the ball. I don't like to pass up a chance to get all dolled up, so we didn't have to be talked into going. We had a great time, and saw lots of people we haven't seen in a long time (hi Amy, if you're reading!). And the best part: My auctioned necklace sold for a whopping $170.00!!

I had to make a jewelry ensemble to go with my ultra-fabulous dress, naturally. For those curious readers, clicking on the necklace will give you bigger pictures.

Speaking of jewelry, I'm also getting ready to add a new line of pendants to my website, for the more frugal customers.

Now I have to find another excuse to wear that dress!!

Lament for Laura

I discovered in shock and horror that the stitching community has lost a good friend, Laura Watkiss, suddenly last Friday night. I did not know her in person, but she was one of the first people I "met" on the stitching boards. I followed her life through her posts, and her blog. Her gorgeous, stitched Kiss inspired me to fall in love with and stitch the piece. I have chatted with her a few times. It's hard to believe that she's gone. She was younger than I am.

My thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Neil, and her family. Laura, you will be missed.

Shed Some Light

Today's song exerpt is for J, a friend of old.

Is it so bad that it can't be fixed? No one can truly love me in all my flaws like you could, and did once. I need our friendship. Let's repair the broken path.

Shed Some Light

I'm falling apart again
And I can't find a way to make amends
And I'm looking in both directions
But it's make believe, it's all pretend

It's innocence within the maze
But I have chosen the wrong way
I'm still getting over who I was
There's no sense of trust, there's no definition of love

Shed some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And shed some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in
