Finished

You know I really do mean to get on here and blog more then once a week. I just don't know where the days go lately. Maybe it's just cause it's Summer.


I finished Gourmet Garden last night. I really enjoyed working on it. For finishing this I treated myself to Scotland by HAED's. I've been griding the fabric for it at work all last week.

The other piece I think I'm going to be working on is Everyone's Nook by Ladybug Lane. I'd stated this a few *gulp* years ago on the fabric it called for 32 count Green Tea by Lakeside Linens and I didn't like the fabric at all so that is the main reason I put it down. I came across a Silkweavers fabric that I've decided to do the piece on it's a 28 count Cahsel Linen called Fern and I think the piece will look so pretty on it.

DH and I last Tuesday went and saw The Police in concert. I have to say it was a totally AMAZING night. I never got to see them when I was growing up so I've been waiting 23 years to see them. It's like a dream now that I've seen them. Can't believe it's really over. :)

Other then stitching I've been doing a lot of reading lately and have joined to sites Good Reads and Paperback Book Swap (my id is Jennifer23 if your a member and want to add me or you want to join)
