Hi fellow sports fans and stitchers out there! Just a little note that today is Opening Day for the Baltimore Orioles!! I have a very busy day planned, but first I wanted to update my blog and let you know I'm still alive and kicking.
You haven't seen to much of me as I'm getting ready for more surgery. My days are filled with lab appointments, doctors visits, and physical therapy. I try to fit in a friend now and then, but I'm finding that more difficult as I get closer to the day of surgery. Today (other than ANOTHER physical therapy appointment) I'm setting all else aside and heading to Baltimore to see the Orioles play at their home opener. This is kind of a tradition in our household, it will be our 4th opening day!! DS's teachers are aware he'll be leaving school early, and are all jealous and want to go too. He very rarely misses a day of school, so I figure once in a while can't hurt.
Ok, on to the good stuff!!
I was able to finish the Sampler Romantique portion for this month FINALLY!! I really struggled with it, but finally pulled it off. Whew!
I finished the next part of the Spring SAL offered on http://novalee02.over-blog.com/ and was actually sent all the final parts when I explained that I would be having surgery before the final part came out. I'm not going to post any other parts until she has finished sending out the rest of the patterns to the others. I am so touched that she was so gracious to send the rest of the parts so I could finish before surgery, Thank you so much Carol!
I was able to catch up on the Oakhaven SAL with the owls. They are just too cute!! So here is the April portion!
I am caught up with the Tree of Stitches SAL being offered on The Stitch Specialists yahoo group except for the beads. They'll have to wait as I just don't have them yet.
There is also a hardanger SAL being offered on The Stitch Specialists Yahoo group and here is the second portion of that. I fear my cable stitches aren't like they should be, but I don't dislike this look, so I'm leaving it as it is.
Last but not least, is my UFO that I was able to work on last week. Nearly there!!
As promised here are the two Brenda Keyes patterns I spoke about, the Red House Sampler and the Country House Sampler. Aren't they beautiful?
DH went shopping the other day and brought home these beautiful flowers...they really spiced up my kitchen!!
Speaking of kitchens...this bad boy was found swinging on my bird feeder yesterday. Fortunately for the birds, his weight causes the openings to the food to close down so he can't steal their food. He tried very hard to get into that feeder the little rascal!! I know that squirrels need to eat too, but not at my feeders!! LOL
Hope you have a great day! I know I'll be having a blast at Opening day! It's supposed to be a beautiful day, though it's a little cloudy and rainy right now. I'll just let my smile be my umbrella!! LET'S GO O'S!!!!! *Hugs*
