Happy Anniversary, Walking by Public Art, Jeweled Lines Afghan

Tomorrow this lady celebrates 46 years of marriage to this guy. (so young back in the day)
Pictures fade over time, and maybe we do too, lol.  My mother made my Wedding Dress, it's dotted swiss, and hubby wore a suit he'd just gotten back from the cleaners.  We got married outside in The Park of Roses.  We'll celebrate tonight by having a nice meal here at the house of steak, potatoes, and wine after cocktail hour with our favorite Martini's and Shrimp Cocktail.
Jeweled Lines continues to grown.  It's over the half way point now and measures about 34 inches.  I'm about half way through the dark green and next will be fun bright turquoise section.  Had an oophs and had to unknit about 13 rows, as I ran out of the dark green.That was a smaller skein than expected.  It's a skein I've had for eons, so no way was I going to be able to match it 100%.  Found something as close as possible at the store and since it's not right next to the other green section...it will get the job done.
**This is week 2 for me participating in Slow Sunday Stitching.  Had hope to find some pictures of some of my cross stitch projects (beyond the one in the last post), but haven't had time to look through old photo albums for pictures to share with some of you ladies who do cross stitch.  I do have a few quilt photo's I know I can share as time goes on.
A few days ago this was a scene on my virtual walk through Seattle on Walking4Fun.  I loved it and thought it worth share.  Some public art is just fun.  This 17 foot Popsicle has been there since 2011, designed by Catherine Mayer.  I think walking or riding past this would simply make you smile.
So, the headway with the foot and walking has come to a bit of a halt.  Was doing fine, in fact think PT was about to release me, when I started with some new pain.  Cuboid Bone is the problem according to my therapist.  Quite sore, swollen and a bit bruised, making walking difficult again.  I can and do walk, but not a good gate like I was.  She's hoping the manual manipulation to put it back where it belongs will do the trick.  She says sometimes The Cuboid Bone Falls down......No dancing tonight for me as hubby and I celebrate our 46th.

  8. Happy Anniversary!! Your wedding dress was lovely; what a treasure! Do you still have it? Your Jeweled Lines is pretty. It's fun to watch our projects grow, isn't it? I have a good deal of experience with broken bones in the foot/ankle. No fun. I'm sorry you've hit a block and hope you're back to *dancing* in no time!! Thanks for dropping by and visiting with me this morning! :)

  13. Happy Anniversary! Ugg to the foot. The body can sure be a pain in the butt, or foot, and not want to go back to its normal state.
