Hi Fellow Stitchers!
It's Monday, and you know what that means? It's "Heart of America" SAL with Babs day!! I wasn't going to stitch today, but I woke up early, and then I remembered that I promised Babs that once the first 15 days were over, I would try to stitch on "Heart of America" from Little House Needleworks on Mondays. I actually got quite a bit done while DH was at the dentist and DS was sleeping in! Here's my progress so far...
It was a busy day today, DS wanted to see a movie, so we got ourselves around and headed to the Annapolis Mall. We did a little bit of window shopping, picked up something for St. Michael's weekend (Sorry St. Michael's buddies, you'll have to wait to see what I got *wink*), ate lunch, then went to see "The Green Hornet" in 3D. It was a bit...corny I guess, but full of action (to the point where I had to close my eyes a few times!!) and I'll admit, I had to chuckle a few times at some of the lines. The guys enjoyed it, so all was not lost...LOL I can see a part two in the future. LOL We left the theater, came home, packed the car with 10 cases of bottled water and other stuff for the homeless shelter (donations we collect from the church and deposit at the shelter once a week), grabbed dinner and ran to the shelter. Off to the grocery store for a few things we were running out of, and back home to check on things with my Mom who is still in the hospital in NY after knee surgery. (She is recovering but very slowly and could use prayers if you are the praying kind!! Thank you!) Now we are settled in for a cold winters night. Whew! But I have to say, I'm not as exhausted as I would have been a couple of weeks ago. It feels good to feel good!
Oh and before I forget, I did some stitching yesterday and have my third finish for the year!! This is Bird in Hand from Blackbird designs. It was one of the 15 challenge pieces, so I guess that leaves 13!! I'm working my way through the list...LOL
DS and DH are back to school and work tomorrow, with the storm on the way I'll probably just stay home and stitch...we'll see what tomorrow brings. Hopefully it won't amount to much as DS has mid-term tests this week and I would hate for him to have studied for nothing *rolling eyes and snickering*. World History is tomorrow...and I was helping him by asking questions...they are covering quite a bit this last half of the year. I'm glad it's him testing and not me!!
Ok, off to do a little more stitching and wait for Hawaii 50 to come on...I love watching and waiting to see if I can see any familiar sights. The first show I think they filmed down in Wialua where DH and I had a small apartment when we lived there. I think I recognized the sugar cane fields...anyway, we have fun reminiscing while the show is on. Have a great night!
