Weekend Update

The weekends sure do go quickly but we did our best to make the most of it. Saturday, after a nice breakfast out, we hit two used booksales in the cities of Sunnyvale and Cupertino. I now have my "Frankenstein" series by Dean Koontz complete and can't wait to start reading them. Wasn't till I got home that I realized that the book by Bertrice Small was #4 of 5 books in the Border Chronicles and Janette Oke/Davis Bunn book is #2 of a trilogy, so now I'm on the hunt to complete these as well. Sometimes the hunt can be just as fun as the read.
Once I got home I was looking for a chart for our Cake stitch-a-long (SAL) and before I knew it I had all my Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks designs spread out on the floor. I finally got them in number order and in bags. My husband took this picture to show my "obsession" as he puts it.
Sunday I got to spend the day at Madonna Needle Works in Morgan Hill with a few of my stitching buddies. A very dear friend of ours is moving to the Midwest so we met up with her to chat, eat, shop, and stitch. I worked on my Liberty - 1776 and I'm really close to having it done. I was determined to finish it when I got home but I was tired and after dinner fell asleep.
My lastest stash enhancement are Baked Goods, Summer Splendor and 1785 Samplings by Little House Needleworks and Sunflowers in Summer by Country Cottage Needleworks. I also picked up Remember Me and Bird in Hand by Blackbird Designs.

I believe, my friend, that YOU and I have a lot of the same obsessions...reading and stitching to say the least...but also CCN and LHN :))))

You are just tooo funny, Miss Milly. Time to start stitching all the organized charts. Where's that new wall going to be that Patrick is putting up for your completed projects?

Wow, you have a lot of charts. I don't think that qualifies you for obsession though... Glad you had fun at your get together. It's always fun to get together with stitchy friends. Wonderful shot of you all together!! And Liberty will be done really soon. It may even be done by now!! Hope you have a good week Milly!

Coni said...

The photo of you on the floor surrounded by all of your charts should be made into a poster and then hung in every stitchy studio! Now that's what I call bliss! Woo Hoo!
