I've been a busy lady lately! I've still found time to get some stitching in though, so let's start there.
First up is Friendship Blooms by Blue Ribbon Designs. Mouse sent me this pattern some time back and said she wanted to have a SAL this year. I'm thrilled to stitch this, as I truly love Blue Ribbon Designs patterns, and as I go along I've found that I love the little patterns that lend themselves to being perfect smalls!! Once I'm through with this, I just might make a few little things, like scissor fobs or needle books, my mind is reeling with all the things I've been thinking. So without further ado, let me show you my progress and show you the small "box" that has been my favorite so far.
I've also been glued to the kit my dear husband gave me for my birthday last year. I have had my eye on this beauty for a few years, and now that the crazy challenge from last year is behind us, I'm making this a priority this year! I have a hard time putting this away at night, and I'm truly losing sleep over it, but I love how it's coming out, even though it's on the dreaded aida cloth!! So here is my progress on Winter's Majesty!
My guys have been going through hockey withdrawal since the negotiations have gone on for so long. Last Sunday they got tickets to the farm team for the Washington Capitols, the Hershey Bears. It was a long haul up to Hershey, PA, but the game was exciting even if we did lose. The good news is that the NHL came to a tentative agreement and there WILL be a hockey season after all. I'm sure I'll have a quiet evening soon if the guys can get tickets to see the Caps play. Let's Go Caps!! My son brought a friend along with him to the game, it was a fun evening.
My husband always jokes about Thomas who he calls a demon with fur, but I honestly think deep down they have a real love hate relationship. For Christmas he bought Thomas this cat condo, which he seems to enjoy. We find him running up the stairs, sleeping on the top platform, and scratching the living daylights out of (so many scratching posts, so little time) and FINALLY leaving my furniture alone!! We should have gotten one ages ago! After starting off incorrectly, figuring out our mistake, and finally starting in the right place, we put it all together in about 15 minutes. All of us breathed a sigh of relief and after a few minutes of sniffing and exploring, Tom settled in like he owned it...and I guess you could say he does! LOL
So...I guess that's all the news for tonight. I hope you all are enjoying the lull after the holidays and getting lots of stitching done! Till next time...
