Grapes Square

Here is my progress on the grape square of the bell pull.  You can already kind of make out the individual grapes in the cluster.  I really love the colors that Teresa Wentzler chose for the purples in this.  They are, of course, blended threads.  I am enjoying stitching this square and got quite a bit done while I watched The Voice tonight.  There is something about all of those beautiful songs that enhance the stitching experience.  

Tonight is pretty chilly.  Like, wear your socks to bed chilly. It is pretty clear outside.  I let Liesl out a little a while ago for the last time tonight.  I stepped outside, too.  Everything was so aglow with the moonlight.  I looked up at the moon and it just looked so bright and so beautiful.  I was in awe for the moment.  

It was pretty nice to step back inside, where everything was warm and cozy.  Every evening, as I get ready for bed, I put my lavender scented neck warmer in the microwave for a couple of minutes.  Then I put it under my blankets to warm up the bed while I finish letting Liesl out and putting all of my stitchy stuff away.  Everything is nice and toasty when it is time to turn in.  Plus my room smells like lavender, so it is so nice and cozy.  

So I am falling asleep thinking about all of the beauty and blessings in my day.  My sweet little dog, the gorgeous moon, the nice people at the smog place that not only got me in right away, but gave me a nice discount, too.  I made a super good dinner, talked to my best friend, and stitched while watching one of my favorite shows.  It was another blessed day, filled with miracles and wonder.

Hope your day is beautiful, too.
