Day Two!

This will be a quickie as I haven't been sleeping too well lately and I'm headed to without further ado, here is my second crazy of the year.  I'm afraid it's not a very good picture. 

This is called Yvonne Richer Sampler and can be seen on this blog.  She copied this sampler from an antique and will give out the pattern pieces as you request them along with a picture of your progress.  I am stitching it on 32 ct. Ivory lugana over one thread.  I was a floss tossing floozy at my LNS the other day and the ladies working there so kindly assisted me with the colors.  I wanted it to look antique so we chose two shades of rose over-dyed thread and two shades of green.  I promise I will write up the threads later, I am too tired to run upstairs and look.  You can find the website here.

I still haven't worked out all the patterns I plan to stitch for my crazies, but hopefully by next weekend I'll have them all sorted out.  This week promises to be a busy one without any days off except Thursday and I have appointments all day that day.  I have to say, I'm not used to being this busy and I am getting extremely tired.  Hopefully next weekend the boys will take it easy on me and I can get some rest.

Today we went to the movies to see the new Sherlock Homes movie.  I have mixed feelings, as it WAS entertaining, though silly at times and a little confusing until all the loose ends were tied up at the end.  Would I recommend it?  Hm...that's hard to say.  We did see Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol over the Christmas holiday and I REALLY enjoyed that one!!

Ok, off to hit the hay so I'm ready for another 10 hour day at work tomorrow.  Will I find time to stitch?  Only time will tell...check back tomorrow and see!  *grin*  See you then!

Pretty sampler, I like the colors you picked and you have been working a lot! I've got Sherlock 1 coming in on Netflix so I can see the second one. Mark has been wanting to see Mission Impossible but I just haven't been too interested in it enough to go see it...I'm sure I will cave...all these "men" movies!
