Hope everyone is having a great week! Mine has been fairly uneventful, which is nice for a change! lol .. we are surviving the kitchen mess and have confirmation dates for the installation of the countertops (4/22) and the refacing (4/23) .. I'm sooo excited, and a bit nervous about how it's all going to look. Chris and Monica (DS and DSIL) invited us over for dinner last night. Chris cooked Swedish meatballs with noodles and I brought a salad. It was very yummy .. he's actually a pretty good cook! lol .. and it was nice to visit with them.
I've been very very very bad in the stash buying department .. you'd think I actually had money to burn! lol .. but of course I couldn't resist a sale :) Down Sunshine Lane (Amy) had her 5 year anniversary last week .. here's a few things I got ...
I was thinking these houses would be cute stitched all together or would be fun to stitch for someone in the Fair and Square exchanges.
I'm becoming as addicted to Little House Needleworks' designs as a lot of you are! I love the fob :)
I was bored during lunch the other day and was surfing ebay. I found a lot of really fun pins for pinkeeps, yep I order a few .. especially when I saw these nifty tins .. and look, one tin has pearly finishes on the pins, but the other one has a matte finish .. I'm thinking they will give a real different look to a pinkeep.
Now for the starts ... being Spring, well at least that's what the calendar is telling us! omgosh we are supposed to get in the high 20's this weekend! lol .. anyway, I've been itching to start Earth Laughs by MDesign for a while now .. I just love the colors and the fabric for this one! Can't wait to start it this weekend :)
I'm going to start this one too this weekend, or tonight! lol .. This is from a retreat I took 2 years ago. The designer is Bent Creek (two sisters). They recently published this design for the public, so I figured it was time I get mine stitched! I'm participating in a SAL in the Bent Creek/Trilogy/Heart in Hand Yahoo group and thought this would be perfect. Look, I'm using a couple of the floss holder I purchased from Monique .. aren't they cute :)
Thanks everyone for their support and comments about my female issues. I have my hystocopy scheduled for next Tuesday .. oh goodie! lol
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I'm grateful for my adult kids ... they are my joy :)
