Stitched on 28 count "Tea" Linen with DMC
On Wednesday Nancy R and I got together at our LNS for a day of stitching, shopping and chatting. I was a VERY good girl and came home with only 2 new charts...."A Quaker Halloween Sampler" and the latest LHN Ornament of the month. I took "Behave" with me to stitch on and managed to get all but the backstitching done. I finished it up on Friday and now I need to find the perfect frame for it and get it off in the mail to my DD.
I also finished stitching a ornament for a Summer exchange and am in the process of putting it together. Can't share the picture until it arrives at it's new home.
I trying real hard to get back into my "rotation" so I can get this finished before the end of June. Page 4 only has a few more stitches to be finished then on to finish page 3, 5 and 6. I will not start on Quaker Halloween until this is done, or at least that's what I keep telling myself.
This project has been calling to me to start for a while now and since I also have the cute little mattress with it's pillow for the finish I decided to go ahead with it. It's going really well and should be finished by the end of next week.
Friday was our usual date night. Since Tracy had his regular check up with the heart doctor it was the perfect time for our date. After a earl dinner we headed for our favorite hang out, Fremont St. Tracy now has a new nick name (excuse the language) but now I call him "Lucky Bastard". He wanted to play the slots and of course I couldn't say No. It didn't matter what machine I picked to play he sat down next to me.....I lost and he won! He would give me the machine he was playing (and won on) and what happens.....I lose. Again he came home with more money in his pocket than he left home with....The Lucky Bastard (I'm lucky too, I have him).
On Saturday I met with Kathy from OC of our ILCS group for lunch. This was the second time we have gotten together (she was here last Fall) and it was like we had just seen each other last week. We had a delightful lunch and a great time chatting.
I'm still getting my stash organized (a never ending task) and have made some progress. Maybe by the end of the year I'll have it all done hehehe.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching
