Well, here is my bit of progress on The Sampler Girl’s Pride & Prejudice Sampler along with my 2 finished Austen Samplers by the same designer. I’m planning a wall full of these designs. I’m just using random colors from my stash to stitch this, it is fun to work on a sampler without using the color key – I do look at the picture a lot!
Sharon shared her great idea of using beaded fobs as zipper pulls on mesh needlework bags. I also shared it with the needlework shop owner that is now carrying my fobs and she loved the idea. I hope for more orders from there!
Ethan has been so horribly cranky today. Happily Jerry was home for a bit between work and class so I ran out for a few minutes of peace and quiet. I stopped by a quilt shop that I rarely visit – they aren’t the friendliest to people who come in with a stroller and never seem to have anything I’m looking for, but they are on the same block as the cross stitch shop where I had to drop off fobs, I could walk to both without moving the car. I picked up two fqs. The one with writing has some references to Wuthering Heights on it that I can make out. I also stopped for a coffee and poured it into my cup when I got home!
This macaroni salad is a summer staple at our house. Tyler and Ethan love it (Kellen would rather eat dirt). It is a cucumber, a can of tuna, macaroni, and miracle whip. So easy and pretty yummy.
I downloaded 2 more books from Audible – they are having a great sale that ends tomorrow. Jerry wanted ‘The Lost Colony’ (Artemis Fowl) and I downloaded a book called ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ for me. I love listening to audio books when I stitch. We don’t have TV (we can watch dvds on a screen but no cable, dish, or reception of any type), so I often spend the evening either listening to a book or to music if I’m stitching. If you ever decide to sign up at Audible please give my email as a reference (firstname.lastname@example.org) or ask me for a referral please.
Still waiting on final grades to see if I finished with a 4.0 – I’m hoping!!
