Ahhh what a great weekend I had for stitching. I managed to stitch a few hours each day and enjoyed myself thoroughly. I would have stitched lots more today but my DH and I went out to eat and we went to Barnes and Nobles and Target to do some shopping. (which was lots of fun too)
Here is what I did this weekend....
This is my Prairie Schooler Winter Wind SAL. I still have one more line to stitch to complete part 1. Will do that tomorrow.
These next 2 pictures are of my Mystery Sampler. I received page 7 on Friday and completed stitching it this weekend. It was so much fun. The part I stitched is the start of a beautiful medallion motif. I just love the way it looks, but will have to wait till I get the page 8 and then page 13 to finish that medallion. Can't wait.
This last picture is Blackbirds Garden of Life SAL piece. It started on the 10th and I have 10 more days to complete the first section before I move on to section 2. I love the colors on this piece.
I bought myself a couple new cds, and 2 new books. One is a knitting book. I have wanted to learn how to knit for a very long time and I found this great book that I hope can teach me. It has nice pictures and diagrams, now to find time to use it.
Then next I bought this cookbook. Recently I got a brand new Crock pot that I really love. I have had them before but got tired of them collecting dust. Now I have discovered the fine art of slowcooking. What fun. I have already made a few really nice stews in it. With this cookbook I plan on getting a lot of use of that crockpot. I managed to look through it this evening and some of the recipes are look great. Even recipes for bread. In a crockpot?? Amazing!!!
