Why does it seem that it takes just as long to clean up from the holidays as it does getting ready for them?
I haven't had a lot of stitching time this week due to the boys being home for school vacation. I have been trying to find room for all the new stuff we got for the holidays and cleaning out the things we no longer need. I bigger task than I had imagined.
We went to see the movie War Horse which has had mixed reviews but I feel it was well done. I don't know why everyone looks for hidden meanings etc. . . in the movies. I like to watch them for enjoyment factor only. It told a story and I took it at face value. On a recent trip to a local Antique Mall I was lucky enough to find these flower frogs. I enjoy the hunt to find different colored ones and hit the jackpot. I got an onyx glass, green glass, and frosted glass. The clear glass one I couldn't leave behind because it was only $2 and a different size from the ones already in my collection. It was a fun shopping trip even though it triggered some serious allergy symptoms. No getting around the fact that I am allergic to dust mites.
On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to spend time with my NH Stitching Group. We spent the day at Carol's house. It's the mid point for all of us and she has the best new condo with lots of open space in a very quiet location. Perfect for stitching the day away. I worked on the Petit Samplings Etui and made lots of queen stitches all day. It was a lovely afternoon with friends, laughing and stitching and of course, snacking.
Carol is new to blogging and you can visit her at Stitching 'n Stashing. I hope to get some more stitching time in today and over the weekend. Happy Stitching!
