I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Progress on A Right Spirit

I'm moving along on this piece and enjoying it.  I'm hoping to frame this one without too much "ripening" time after it's finished.

I received another LHN model to stitch so it will be taking priority until it's finished.  It looks to be another great design.  I'm afraid I'm destined to stitch it twice bc I love it already.

Speaking of models, Nikki at CCN released I design I stitched for her.  Very cute!  I love the little birdies.

You can see it here:

Singin' in the Spring

Last night was DS's last percussion contest.  It's beginning to really hit me just how soon he'll be graduating.  Here he was with his fellow percussion seniors (and a few that dropped band) when they first started band:

Seems like it was just yesterday.  Sigh.............................

Here they are now:

Today is DH's birthday.  He never wants anything but I'll drive up to near Houston to have lunch with him.  I'll stop off at a plant nursery on the way home.  May pick up a key lime tree to plant and we'll call it his gift. ;-)  He much prefers pies over cakes, so I'll bake an apple pie for him to have after we grill some steaks for dinner.  We're so exciting in our old age!  We find lately that we enjoy the simple pleasures.

Speaking of food, I tried a recipe I found on the internet for Pecan Pie muffins.  They were pretty tasty.  I really liked that they weren't overly sweet.

Until next time.....  Happy Stitching!
