I know I have been a lax blogger. Settling into home has taken a bit of time.
We have to give the mice their eviction notice, clean up after their winter's sojourn and establish ourselves as the rightful residents. Restocking the fridge and cupboards takes some time. Washing windows and general housecleaning ate up time.
We visited with our doctor - checking in - we're both fine, went to the dentist - gotta have pearly whites, need hair cuts - still working on that one - next week. We have made time to see our family and friends.
I have been spending some time with my BFF Beatrice as she adjusts to her new life alone. We have hung pictures, sorted boxes, had lunch, went on a day trip to Dani's (photos on her blog) and talked lots and stitched a little.
This afternoon our youngest son arrived with the two grandsons for the weekend. He has gone hunting turkey with his brother and we are going to watch the two little guys. Mommy stayed at home getting some well deserved me time.
I have managed a small amount of stitching. I finished an exchange piece that I cannot show you until it is received.
I picked up my Friendship Sampler RR and filled in some of the blank parts. I think I stitched 9 hearts all told.
Beatrice took it for a day and she stitched one of the remaining 4 hearts. The other 3 are all spoken for so it won't be long until this is a finished finish!!! I am adding a before and after photo so you can see the progress.
I also took a quick peek into Ann's shop and walked out with this little purchase. Ann says it has been in the shop for a bit but I just never saw it. It had to come home with me. I love it so much that I have the fabric and threads pulled to start it asap not withstanding my long list of other WIP's that are more urgent.
And the best part - Monday will be my 3rd Blogaversary. What a joy it has been. I have met some of the most wonderful people and have made many new friends.
I will be offering a little gift from me to one lucky person to celebrate this grand occasion. So - leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name on May 23 at the end of the day.
To"yorkiewith needles" please contact me with an email address re the possible Mirabilia RR.
That's it for this round. Hope all your frogs have their walking papers LOL.
