Was all excited about the Rump Roast for dinner tonight.
It smelled divine while it was cooking.
It was medium rare....perfectly cooked for us!
But, it was shoe leather!
I hate that when it happens.
Even the gravy turned out great!
We were going to have beef sandwiches Wednesday for dinner.....shoot that idea.
I have a really busy week at work since my co-worker is on vacation.
Now I have to come up with something else....BAH!!
We got a lot of cleaning this weekend.
I figured I had to do it this weekend while there is still snow and Bob can't go out to the property.
Got him up on a ladder to clean fans and the tops of the kitchen cabinets.
I washed the decorative baskets and glassware that are displayed up there.
I also rung out the rag and handed it back to him.
I got Ed to wipe the baseboards, he has young knees.....his parents do not.
When we were done, we had a little lunch.
On the way to the grocery store, we stopped at a new coffee place.
I had a Magic Mocha, it was a Mocha Latte with the spicy kick of cayenne pepper.
I think that will be my drink there.
I did putzed in the sewing room today.
I got a few things put away.
I bought some square frames at Hobby Lobby last weekend I thought I could use to re-frame
La-D-Da's Spring Hare.
I used the frame it was in for something else.
Of course the frames weren't quite the right size so, I took it off the board, cut it and re-attached it.
My lines aren't exactly the straight.....heavy sigh....I have difficulty with lines and framing.
Now for the Sarah Braizear update.
I even ironed it so it would photograph pretty.
I think this is pretty much the area I worked on this week.
I wanted a close up of the vase
The center section
I am going to put it aside for a while.
I want to work on BBD Merrily, Merrily We Welcome Spring.
I also want to work on an Homespun Elegance There is a Garden I got from her Etsy shop.
It is a small piece that I picked some Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe thread that looks fabulous.
I will post it next week.
It isn't on of my stitch 9 challenge list but, I don't care!
I will come back to Sarah but, I need a break.
She is large and complicated since I'm doing it on 40 count.
I hoping for a smooth week.
It will be busy.
I hope I can stay awake in the evening long enough to get a little stitching done.
Hope you had a great weekend!
Keep on Stitching
