I finally started the LK April Stamp. I didn't have all the WDW colors called for in the chart so used some DMC and other overdyed from my stash. A few hours more and this should be ready for the April Shelf.
stitched on 28 count natural Linen with
WDW, GAST, Dinky Dyes Silk
This is the project that the Frogs has so much fun with. I had lots of fun picking out colors for this one. I wasn't sure at first about the choices but the more I stitched the better I liked it. The centers of the flower were charted to be stitched but I thought the buttons were a cute addition.
Now I would like to do a different type of PIF with the chart. Just a couple of easy rules for this PIF.
1. Leave a comment here on my blog
2. You will have 4 weeks to stitch the chart and post the finish on your blog
3. After the finish post the PIF and send it on to someone else who would like to stitch it (with the same rules)
4. When no one else wants to stitch return the chart to me.
If more than one person would like to stitch this I'll draw the name of the next lucky person next weekend.
I also got into a finishing mood and pulled out this Needleroll and put it together. I had been trying to find the perfect ribbon but no such luck so just got some pink ribbon. I also finished two more projects but they are for the birthday exchange and I'll share them when the Birthday girls open their gifts. Did another little project but again it's a gift so can't share yet.

Friday was a busy day for us. Tracy had to have lab work done in the early AM. This normally takes forever since he has to wait and wait and wait. Well this time I decided I would try making a appointment for the blood test and boy am I glad I had that brain storm. We got to the lab and instead of going in with him I went across the street to Starbucks for coffee and some quiet time to just sit, read and enjoy my coffee. I barely got settled and my book open before he was done. Like anyone after fasting blood work he was hungry so we headed for the first place he saw for some breakfast and I started stitching on the LK Stamp while we waited.
Next off we went to do some shopping for the things for the Seasonal Shelf for April. JoAnn's was our first stop and a good stop it was. I found lots of really cute stuff and the best part was it was all on sale for 40-50% off. I even found the perfect pre-cut mat for my "Not Tonight..." project so it will be framed this week. We hit a couple of other stores and then came home with all our goodies and I spent the afternoon stitching while Tracy took a nap. When he woke up he wanted to go out for dinner (you know I didn't say "No dear, I'd rather cook" hehehe). We headed out to our favorite buffet to have a major pig out. After eating we sat down at a slot machine and got lucky. Within 10 minutes we had won enough between us to pay for dinner and a little extra to do some more tourist type shopping. Here is what it got me......
I just love them! I put one in the bathroom and the other two are by my computer. I am soooo spoiled
I'm back to working on the Monopoly SAL today and should have page 2 done today and maybe even start on the next side.
Well I've rambled enough for now so ....
Until Next Time.....Have a Great week with lots of Happy Stitching
