I'm so excited to have Summer Joy completed. I didn't realize I was calling it the wrong name for all this time! lol .. The only think I changed was the fabric. When I purchased the chart I had just finished Sunflower Sampler that I did stitch on the recommended blue fabric. I just love how this turned out :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was good .. busy but good. On Friday Lisa and I did our movie marathon day. We went to breakfast and started our movie viewing at 10:40am. We saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. We loved the movie! A wee bit long, but very good. Of course it was fasinating to see how well they aged both Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, but even more fasinating to see how they made both of them look younger! Then we were off to see Last Chance Harvey with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. Another movie I would recommend if you like enjoyable sappy movies :) Then we were off to have a late lunch and do some shopping before taking in the 7:10pm showing of Slumdog Millionaire. OMG what a great movie!! The story just grabs you and doesn't let go. It is profoundly sad learning about the slums of India, something you really only hear about but never really see. I think the director did an incredible job of showing us the slums. I would recommend this to anyone! It was a really fun day!
Saturday was spent doing house stuff .. no, Christmas isn't put away yet! argh!!! but I have had a lot of other stuff going on .. my goal is this weekend come hell or high water! lol Saturday night I headed for to Cheryl's house for a girls evening .. drinks, dinner, drinks and lots of laughter and a few tears. A couple of her friends are going home (Spokane and Chicago) after spending the last 2 weeks with Cheryl .. so we had a great send off for them .. so great I rolled in the house at 2:30 am! dammm we girls can talk! lol Cheryl has a great many friends, but most of us don't know each other .. this was just one get together to start getting us all connected, trading phone numbers and email addresses .. hope it helps to keep up all in touch and there for Cheryl. There really isn't anything like girl friends is there :)
Sunday I collapsed! lol .. did some stitching, watched a lot of football and did the laundry .. woo hoo! lol
I'm back to stitching on Bent Creek's Joy .. hmmmmm, I guess I'm into Joy right now! lol
I'm grateful for Mondays .. being over!
