Lonely Screaming Trees and Model Stitching

  • Posted on August 26, 2005 at 7:19 pm

Okay, so this is a private joke between me and my husband. It’s one of those classic cases of misunderstood song lyrics. Kind of like people hear “”scuse me while I kiss this guy” instead of “‘scuse me while I kiss the sky” in the Jimi Hendrix song. Except this one revolves around the Whitesnake song entitled Here I Go Again on My Own. The lyrics in this song that reference “lonely street of dreams” were misunderstood by my husband to be “lonely screaming trees.”

And now that I’ve explained the joke, how it relates to this post is just the continuation/finale of the tree saga. The tree company owner came out today and ground out a total of 8 stumps (from the 4 trees they took down yesterday and the 4 we’ve chopped down ourselves over the past 3 years) in 30 minutes. The grinder was a remote controlled, robotic number that was pretty slick.

Now all that remains of my precious trees are piles of ground-out mulch, sawdust and dirt. And all I could think of were the remaining lonely screaming trees. Wow, that was quite a long setup, wasn’t it? 😉

On a different note, I’d like to thank everyone for your kind comments on my stitching lately. Today, I’m going to share some models that I stitched over a month ago. They were released at the Nashville show at the beginning of August, so I can post my pictures now. Woohoo! These were stitched for Judith Tuttle of Twisted Oaks Designs. They were finished into ornaments with pearl cabochons for the faces.
