In between stitching on exchanges, I've been working on Bent Creek's Joy and on CCN's Summer Joy .. I'll post a picture of Summer Joy over the weekend .. but here's BC's Joy so far ... I really love this piece! But then don't I say that about everything I'm stitching??!! lol
Hope everyone is having a great week .. enjoy your summer and getting lots of stitching done .. your blogs are certainly busy busy busy :)
DH and I are going to see Stevie Wonder in concert tomorrow night .. I am soo excited! We paid more than we should have for the tickets, but he is one of our most favorite music artist. We saw him back in 73, it was his Talking Book tour. In our opinion, Talking Book was definately one of his best albums ever .. a close 2nd would be Songs in the Key of Life. There's a song from Talking Book called You and I. I guess you could call this "our song" .. the first time we heard Stevie sing it live, it touched both of us .. ya know when of those moments when you smile at your significant other, lock eyes, squeeze each others hands and you just know it spoke to both of you. I really can't wait to hear him 30 odd years later, I hope he sings it. Here's the lyrics ...
"You And I"
Here we are on earth together,
It's you and I,
God has made us fall in love, it's true,
I've really found someone like you
Will it say the love you feel for me, will it say,
That you will be by my side
To see me through,
Until my life is through
Well, in my mind, we can conquer the world,
In love you and I, you and I, you and I
I am glad at least in my life I found someone
That may not be here forever to see me through,
But I found strength in you,
I only pray that I have shown you a brighter day,
Because that's all that I am living for, you see,
Don't worry what happens to me
Cause' in my mind, you will stay here always,
In love, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
In my mind we can conquer the world
In love, you and I, you and I, you and I
