Friday I'm in Love

Whew!  Good to sit down.  I had the day off today.  
They usually are eventful days.  
I started with having to take the super Shih Tzu to the groomers at 8 am.
Then on to do battle at Walmart.  I find Walmart a necessary evil.  I do try and go infrequently.
I needed to pick up a picture frame along with stuff I know is cheaper at Walmart.  
I don't buy their hype that they have the lowest prices on everything.  
They did have some quilt fabric on sale.  I bought this to finish stitching projects.
I like having stash on hand.  It was $3 a yard.  I got half yards.  
 The colors will come in handy.
After Walmart, had breakfast, picked Buster up, cleaned went out to lunch with Katy
and took a nap....awww nap!
 I did get a 5 x 7 frame for the Chessie and Me piece.  I did cheat to take the picture.  
I haven't laced up the back yet but, wanted to get the picture.  
 I have been working on the LHN Virtues - Faith.
At stitching group last night, I worked on my sister's birthday present.  
I can't show that yet.  
I do want it to be a surprise.  
I am going to do the sheep in the brown Wisper Thread I have.  
It really is the right color compared to the DMC the pattern calls for.

Doing some celebrating this weekend.  Monday is our 25th Wedding Anniversary.  Ed will be home and we are going out for dinner on Saturday.  We are planning a long weekend somewhere fun this fall since the summer is just too busy for Bob to take time off from work.

Thanks for the great comments.  Have a spectacular weekend!
Keep on Stitching!
I almost forgot, I won a autograft pattern from Norden Crafts Needle Bling Designs.  It is cute!


  1. Hello Monica,

    Congrats on your Anniversary, I hope you and your Husband have a wonderful day together.

    Happy days.

  2. Your Chessie finish is lovely. I avoid Wally World like the plague

  3. Congrats on your Anniversary! I hope you have a lovely day. Your new fabrics are so very pretty, and the sampler will be just right in that frame.

  4. My addiction to stash building includes fabric too, Monica! You have great colors for finishing.
    You found the perfect frame for Grande Old Flag. The sampler is lovely.
    Congrats on your anniversary. Monday is also my oldest son's 26th b'day. Doesn't time seem to fly?
    May you be blessed with many years together.

  5. Great fabrics and love the frame for your piece!!
