Oh my is it Sunday already. Our week vacation is just about over. It went way too fast.
My husband was out of town this week and though I miss him, it was fun not having to cook so much and to be able to just do nothing if thats what I wanted. Hmmm I think I did that most of all. It was a much needed relaxed week. I didn't stitch as much as I thought I would but that's okay, I did stitch some and I also found myself incredibly hooked on a couple computer games. Zuma and Bejeweled Twist. At first I thought what a waste of some wonderful stitching time but then it was fun. LOL So isn't that what vacations should be? Fun! One day I took the ride to Hyde Park to the LNS there. Though she didn't have any new market stuff yet, I really went there to get a new pair of much needed magnifiers. I misplaced the others ones I had and I have been worried that one of my dogs had them for a snack. Nothing would surprise me more, but I found them last night. Figures! So now I have a spare. I do like the new ones though, they are tighter and much clearer. The owner and I (Hi, Pat) had a wonderful time chatting, about new things and market, and family, what fun. It was good to see her, I had not gone there in awhile and last time I was rushed by you know who. yes DH who else. I also bought some much needed threads, some crescents, some WDW and some GA's so I left the store broke with my tiny little bag but it was wonderful.
Another day I went to Walmart, now you might say what is so thrilling about that. I went there ALONE, it was heaven, noone rushing me or telling me come here come here look at this. I just walked around and looked at everything. I took my time. I saw things I never saw before. Amazing! They already have Easter items out including the incredible cadbury eggs( Cathey, I bought 2 and ate them thinking of you, how many so far?) and Dove eggs. I didn't buy them because well if I bought the bag of them I would have ate the bag of them.
I stitched and finished those things in the picture there this week. Yes, I do like red. LOL The box is topped with a design from a Weihenberg Mystery, it's the very first motif. I decided it looked much better on this box. I have retired from Mysteries. HEHE at least for the meanwhile. Maybe I should rephrase that, I am retiring from HONKING HUGE mysteries. I have my Vierlanden Mystery from last year that I adore but its so huge, I just would love to stitch on some smaller pieces, smaller counts. The other 2 little items are floss holders, one for me and one for a giftie. I used Wdw garnet on one and a threadworxx red on the other. I just love that threadworkxx red, so pretty and one stitch at a time it just is so pretty to look at. I need to get me some more of these threads. I have another threadxx thread that I am anxious to use too with pinks and greens in it.
I wonder if we will even have school tomorrow since they say a Noreaster is on its way. We shall see. Will this winter ever end?
Happy Sunday, Everybody and have a wonderful week.
