Monday Monday ...

How was your weekend? We had a busy one around here, but a good busy. Saturday I spent some quality time at the local bead store ... oh my was that fun! Then it was home to laundry and a bit of stitching. Saturday night had date night with Ken and Lisa. We had a yummy dinner at Red Lobster and then it was off to see Book of Eli. I really enjoyed this movie ... it wasn't anything like I expected, but it was good. The story was very intriguing and Denzel was awesome, as he always is.

I did get some stitching in last week. I decided I wanted to stitch a couple of quick Valentine's Day designs after seeing some lovely finishes on Staci blog, she definately keeps me motivated! The first finish is by Erica Michaels, an old freebie of her's called Hugs and Kisses ... it was a fun stitch ... I think I'll be finishing it as a pinkeep ...
Next up is another freebie by The Stitcherhood. I stitched it over 1 on some coffee dyed fabric with Belle Soie's Tulip. Sure did turn out small lol .. I think I might be stitching it again over 2. In the picture is a new scissor fob I made ... had to have a Valentine's Day scissor fob!

I also stitched a little on Wizard of Oz ... I enjoy stitching on the quick little motifs ...


Thank you all for your birthday wishes! Not that I'm still celebrating ... but I can't wait for some stash that I bought with my birthday money and I've been told by a couple of friends to watch my mailbox ... oooohhhh I love surprises! lol

Are you stitching any Valentine's Day designs? I'd love to see them!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for red ...

These are so cute! Where did you get the W of Oz design? Or maybe I should say when - I googled it and came up empty. Even went on the designer's at several online shops - not there. Thanks!

they all look great! I did the Valentine last week & I pulled the tic tac toe one back out yesterday. I had started it last year & put it away when V day was over! Must finish!
I will have to show my brother the Wizard of Oz one! He loves that movie since he was in a play as a kid as the tin man!
