Yesterday we drove to Austin to move DS into his college apartment. It's almost a 4 hour drive from here so, as you can imagine, it was a long day. We discovered in Austin that we'd left part of his futon here at home so we'll be making another trip soon. At least he can sleep on the mattress on the floor until we can make it back.
On the stitching front, a model I stitched for Nikki at http://www.countrycottageneedleworks.blogspot.com/ and http://www.countrycottageneedleworks.com/ has just been released on her blog so I can finally share it. I loved this one! My kitchen has an apple theme and I suspect I'll be stitching this one again for me. Nikki seems to really be "on a roll" lately with lots of beautiful designs.
My birthday gift from DH this year was a StitchMate needlework stand and it just arrived Friday afternoon. I think I'm going to love this...and wonder what took me so long to ask for it. You can read about the stand here: http://www.cozycottage.com/
I also finished and sent another model out to Nikki this week so I'm back to personal stitching (when I have any time or energy left from band. I'm working on LHN's (Dianne Williams, Nikki's mother) designed this piece, Virtue Sampler:
I finished the Moonwalking with Einstein book (very interesting) and started another Erik Larson book, IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS: LOVE, TERROR, AND AN AMERICAN FAMILY IN HITLER'S BERLIN and am finding it very interesting.
Until next time, happy stitching!
