Happy St. Patrick's Day ..

Hope everyone has a very green day :) The kids are coming over for dinner tonight .. corned beef, little red potatoes, brussel sprouts and corn .. yep my family likes brussel sprouts instead of cabbage! lol Here's a picture of my mantel in the family room .. nope I'm not Irish, but I love this holiday! ok ok .. I love all the holidays *grin* But in all fairness, my FIL's mom was Irish, so we do have some reason to wear green today .. other than not getting pinched!


Hope everyone had a great weekend .. mine was pretty quiet. Friday night we watched August Rush. Has anyone seen it yet? Very cute movie .. I was lost in the music! Saturday DH and I cleaned house .. yea, he's pretty good at helping, especially with floors and bathrooms .. really! Saturday night I stitched on Good Morning and we watched Stand By Me. Robert (youngest DD) had never seen the movie .. and it was still great after all these years :) Sunday was more stitching on Good Morning and watching the nascar race. And there was grocery shopping and laundry to do after the race .. and I started Rosy Life .. I'll post pictures soon :)

Thanks for all the comments .. nice to see some new readers .. thanks for stopping by and saying hi *smile*

I'm grateful for quiet productive weekends ...

Happy St. Pat's to you too! And a happy day unto you. I must be related, Maggie, I too love brussel sprouts. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I love your green display, and the little hats and HIH's St. Patrick's Day bird have to be my favorites. It sounds like you have had some fun stitching time!

:-D I like brussel sprouts too! Way better than cabbage. But what's that about getting pinched? Are you allowed a retaliatory jab with an embroidery or knitting needle?

Michele,
Love your St. Patrick's day decorations. Great stitching :)

I also like brussel sprouts (maybe it's a cross stitch thing -- cross stitchers like brussel sprouts).

Sounds like you had a great weekend. Hope this coming weekend is just a productive for you (except more stitch time and less housework).

Thanks for your comments on my blog, and YES, you can borrow Christmas Chick, you can have it actually. I'll drop it into the mail to you.
