Seattle and New Start!

Thank you to all of you who looked at my cute little owl.  I do appreciate the time you take to look at the blog and I love the comments! I got a message that my Part 2 of the Halloween Mystery Sampler was shipped on Sat.  That's good news! Meanwhile , I needed something to stitch between the parts of the Mystery sampler.  Every year I do a Halloween cross stitch  for my Grandson.  This year I'm doing one from the new Just Cross Stitch Halloween Magazine, Halloween Town.  I found great fabric.




I love the smoky look of this fabric and think it will do very well for a Halloween Town!

Last evening the SBA and I went over to Seattle .  I called it playing tourist.  We just went to the waterfront.  We had dinner and rode the new big ferris wheel.  It was lots of fun.  I'll just be quiet and let you see the pictures we took from the wheel.




Thank goodness these little things were air conditioned!!



Mt. Rainier  and the stadiums where the Mariners and the Seahawks play.


We are headed home on the ferry at sunset.


I will leave off with a view of the beautiful mountain. Hope you all have had a good week-end.

  7. Thank you for sharing your pictures of Seattle. The photographs are fantastic. My favourite being the final view of the misty mountain - so ethereal. Being British we don't DO Halloween with the same aplomb as our colonial cousins but your stitching is lovely.
