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.
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...LOL
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! :)
