Sunday ...

Hope everyone had a great weekend .. mine was pretty quiet but nice. Friday night DH and I rented Beautiful Ohio .. has anyone seen it? It was on OnDemand .. a IFC movie with Rita Wilson William Hurt. Very good, but off the wall movie. And I learned something new about Ohio during the movie .. you have a very pretty state song :) While we watched the movie I put the finishing touches on Good Morning (needed the charms) and finished up Rosy too .. they both were very fun to stitch.






I joined a new blog a couple weeks ago ... Monthly Finishes Challenge. Making a pinkeep was the challenge for March. This is the 2nd pinkeep I've made. This one went together much better than the first, but I still have lots of practicing to do before I would ever give one away :) I stitched this last October .. I thought it was perfect for a pinkeep ... and I added the needle that I stitched it with in the heart. I thought it was a cute touch.

I had picked out a couple of different fabrics/ribbons for this piece ... I asked Robert what he thought ... this was the fabric and ribbon he liked the most ... I love the flowers and the dots on the ribbon .. busy, but I think it works with the simple stitched piece.


and dammmm I really did iron this! lol


Sunday I worked on the L*K double flip-its .. hopefully I'll have a picture to share soon.

Thanks for all the comments about my colorful red laptop and the Tree of Me box ... I really do enjoy hearing from all of you :) Barbara I do think you should cross stitch yourself a new cover *smile*

I'm grateful for nice weekends ...
