Nuggets of Joy

Yes, the grapes are as delicious as they look. Bunches of red flame grapes! The other vine, not as mature as this one, appears to be the good old green variety.

Stacy is doing very well, once again. Phew!

   Well, it looks like the dyeing and discharging of fabric has come to an end; the temp in the garage at 8am was 89 and it's easily hit 105 outside. So, the sewing machine was dusted off and seems delighted to be in use again. Some of these fabric mail art pieces might just end up being give-aways for the blog-anniversary that I've extended from the 20Th to the end of the month. Just leave a comment and I'll add your name to the list. (Thanks Doreen for all of the marvelous postage stamps! I'm finally using some of them.)    

Quote sent to me this morning. :)      "Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility."
-James Thurber (1894-1961)  (if I didn't laugh about the dramas, I'd be in a straight-jacket by now.)

Those grapes look absolutely luscious. Like your cards as well.I am trying to organise a give away as well but life and my mother keep getting in the way.
Off for a Grumpy Goddess weekend tomorrow but the traumas of getting it all organised sometimes make me wonder if it is all worth while. Of course it will be!!
Glad Stacy is back to normal but oh dear, your mother!
Lots of love and hugs.

Oh the grapes look SO yummy. Enjoy!!!
The fabric post cards are stunning. I adore the fabric and the embellishments of the stamps, painting and stitching. Wonderful!

I can only imagine that kind of heat. Here it is 62 and predicted to go up to 80. We do have a LOT of mosquitoes though so there is always something.
I think sewing sounds like a great plan given your temps. I'll be watching to see what creations come off your sewing machine.
