Weekly Update


This week we are STILL getting snow... We had a record breaking 28.7 inches of snowfall in February which shattered the record of 27.8 in 1896. Just my opinion ~ that was a record we didn't need to break! I am tired of the snow and now we are under a winter advisory. We have been having thunderstorms this afternoon and tomorrow more snow showers. On the positive note, it looks like tomorrow MAY be the last of the snow for a while ;) YIPPEE

STITCHINGI stitched some more on the border for my EMS SAL this week; but it is pretty boring just doing the borders...so I took a little break from that and started L*K's ABCs of Parenting. I plan on stitching this twice; once for the daughter of my boss who is expecting twins in April and then again for my daughter. The first one I am doing is for the daughter of my boss and I am doing that one with DMC thread instead of the Crescent Colours that came with the chart. Of course I could not find a conversion chart for the Crescent Colours so I am just matching them up as close as I can. This is how far I am.
Doesn't seem like it will take to long to stitch...it's just finding the time to actually stitch.
STASH SHOPPING
I did manage to make it over to my favorite LNS Inspired Needle to get in a bit of shopping. This is what I picked up this time
Whispered by the Wind's Fugue, Lady K Needleart's Spanish Flair, Lizzie Kate's One Hundred Years and...
Together from Deanna Carter, Lizzie Kate's Hop Squared, Val's Little Stuff Kiss Me (which my son picked up for his girlfriend in Australia), Lizzie Kate's Coffee Crazy (which was something I won in a contest that the shop owner Cathy was running), and a piece of fabric to do my daughter's ABC chart on. Not to bad of a day! And I finally got to meet Cathy in person ;) Very nice lady; whom I hope I get to see a lot more of! LOL

BOOKS
This week I FINALLY finished Lee Child's One Shot and I also read Joanne Fluke's Gingerbread Cookie Murder. Normally I like these books that follow Hannah thru her crime solving antics but I was very disappointed in this one. Guess you can't like 'em all? I also listened to Tess Gerritson's The Mephisto Club and The Keepsake. Didn't really care for the beginning of The Keepsake but it got better as it went along. I will be listening to the next book in Gerritson's Rizolli and Isles series; Ice Cold but not sure what I will be reading. I also stopped into Borders on Saturday to see if they had anything good on sale but the good stuff is pretty much cleared out already. Did manage to pick up a few things for Jacob and a couple of Cross Stitch magazines though. I am going to miss that store; luckily I will still have one near work and another not to far away from my house...just not near where I usually shop but I guess I will go that way now! :)

Have a wonderfully blessed week and I will see you next time ~ hopefully with a lot more stitched on the LK chart! :)

I like how your blog left a house on my feedjit so I could see you. I wish others did that so i could visit them. How did you do that? I would like to do the same.
