Hi there fellow stitchers!
I had someone on Facebook ask me what snew today. LOL An old joke, but still gave me a chuckle today. I'll tell you what's new though...SNOW!! But before the weather got too bad, I had some stitching buddies over for the day.
Sonya and Astrid came over yesterday morning but as soon as they saw the first flake they hightailed it to their prospective homes. I'm so glad they came over for a few hours. It was fun spending time with other women, especially stitchers. Thank you ladies, it was the perfect ending of my week and I enjoyed every minute of it!! And it was even more special since it was the anniversary of the day Astrid and I first met. We have made time for each other nearly once a week ever since as we made fast friends the first time we met! And just look what Astrid brought me!!
I love orchids, but she specifically picked this one as it has five petals and is purple in color. Wasn't she thoughtful? I had such a crazy week I didn't have time to find her a gift, but I hope to find something before the next time we meet. Thank you so much, Astrid, I truly love the orchid!!
Sonya and Alice had kept me out too late the night before, we nearly didn't have anything for lunch the next day. She and Alice and I went to see Silver Linings Playbook. I don't know if we irritated anyone before or after the movie with our laughter, but I have to say, I dearly love my friends. I guess we have enough in common with marriages/kids/etc that sharing our experiences help make our own lives feel less chaotic and abnormal.
Thank you all so very much for including me in your get togethers. The time we spend together means more than you'll ever know!! You keep me sane...ok maybe not sane, but close enough for government work! LOL
So what have I been doing this week stitchwise? First up is Friendship Blooms. These are the most recent blocks I have finished. I think I'm a wee bit ahead of the others, but I know in the weeks to come I won't have as much time to stitch on this so I'm sure the others will catch up to me. Babs, Mouse and I are working on this as a stitch-a-long. It's always so much fun even though we live far apart to encourage one another as we work on the same project. The pictures I've seen of their stitching puts my stitching to shame. Check out their blogs by clicking on their names!
I've been working on Winter's Majesty more frequently, and I really love how it's coming together, but I really need to start some sort of rotation. I dearly want to work on some WIPs I started last year, and I need to get motivated on One Nation, the SAL I started with Astrid last year. I love the pattern, and can't wait to get it finished and up on my wall, but I have a mental block about stitching it! Any suggestions?
Ok, I guess that's all the news for now. I think next week I'm going to try to stitch on something different each day and see how that works. Keep your fingers crossed! Til then keep smiling and stitching!! *Hugs*
