Quote of the week

RIP Nora Ephron, American filmaker, director, produce, screenwriter, novelist, playwright, journalist, author, and blogger.
"I could never be with someone who likes Joni Mitchell. 'It's clouds illusions I recall/I really don't know clouds at all.' What does that mean? Is she a pilot? Is she taking flying lessons? It must be a metaphor for something but I don't know what it is." (Tom Hanks, Sleepless in Seattle)

I finally got my frame for My Lady by Little House Needleworks so she is all done and already hanging on my living room wall along with my other LHN pieces. She is just the perfect addition. I'm anxious to start Star Spangled Garden by Country Cottage Needleworks but first I've committed to stitching a new model for LHN.

Everything I do is stitched with its color."

New stitching project...

My next cross stitch project will be Star Spangled Garden by Country Cottage Needleworks. I'm really looking forward to starting this one, as soon as I finished a "secret" project I'm working on. Sorry can't share more but there are eyes everywhere.

ADA Tour de Cure 2012

As he has for the past 10 years, my husband Patrick took part in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure here in Silicon Valley. Our personal goal was to raise $1K and thanks to your family and friends we raised a little over $1300. Hubby was part of the Lockheed Martin team which overall raised over $125K..and very close to their goal of $150K. I'm so proud of him for riding for me and others who live with diabetes.

Quote of the Week

"In times of grief and sorrow I will hold  you and rock you and take your grief and make it my own. When you cry I cry and when you hurt I hurt. And together we will try to hold back the floods to tears and despair and make it through the potholed street of life"
- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

New finishes

Last week I finished Mildred's Garden House by Blackbird Designs. Today I laced it and framed it and love how it turned out. My cross stitch finish for the week was My Lady by Little House Needleworks. I laced that one too, added the charm, and now waiting on the frame. I've been quite bitten by the stitching bug and now ready to tackle a new project and pick up my long forgotten Fairy Grandmother.
