It is 10:00a.m., sunny and 28°. I have 2 more working days until Freedom Friday, when time is my own and the only obligations I have is to 2 poohs, stitching, reading, 4 movies, several phone calls from my mother, probably a trip to Wal-Mart to get a drawer storage unit on wheels and of course a trip to Hobby Lobby to get 99¢ Simplicity patterns. I might have an obligation to also go get biscuits and gravy from HyVee, they are pretty good, not a full order but a half order, mind you.
Can you believe I actually saw my collar bone it the bathroom mirror yesterday? Oh my gosh, something looked different as I turned to leave. I turned back around and lo and behold, there it was. I wore that pretty spotted leopard/cheetah sweater set "Santa" gave me for Christmas, which I love, and at work Beverly says to me to take off my jeans jacket and she remarked at how "skinny" I am getting. Well we all know I am NOT "skinny" yet, but there is definitely less of me! LOL!
I bought this lovely e-booklet from The Sampler Girl over the weekend. There are 9 designs in the booklet, so it was $2.00 a design, not bad, but I like most of them and can really see stitching most of them. Tanya (the lovely designer) also has a sweet Valentine offering on her blog "Valentine Crown 1787". You pick the colors and it is a fast little stitch, if you are a fast stitcher, which we all know, I am NOT! Check out her blog: http://atthehoneysuckletree.blogspot.com/
Okay designs don't get much cuter than this one! It is a free design and there are several color schemes and several different sayings you could stitch. I love it! Sheepies are SO cute!
Yes I am on top of the world looking down on my Lilac Thicket and I am as happy as I can be. I hope you are also on top of the world today! God Bless all my visitors to the Lilac Thicket, and may all your happiness infect the less happy!
