Wonderful holidays!

I am on holidays this week and isn't it nice that the sun began to shine? Today I went and spent the morning with my fellow stitcher Jayne. We had a project that needed to be completed. It is not done but hopefully soon.
I left her house around 1:00 and met up with my hubby and spent the rest of the afternoon on our deck having some wine and then dinner. Now I am putting on my pj's and having a quiet evening.
Two more sleeps and we are headed for Brentwood on the Beach, on the lovely beaches of Lake Huron. Four days of stitching on the beach.

4 more sleeps!

Hi everyone, well the ladies in The Stitching Sister's are getting pretty excited, we have 4 more sleeps and we will be off to Brentwood on the Beach for a fabulous week end of cross stitching. We will try to fit in time to go in the hot tub, sauna, and of course the salt water pool. It would be nice if the sun would shine and we could take time out to sit in the beach chairs and look out on beautiful Lake Huron, but if it rains then we will be content to sit inside and stitch and watch movies.

The million dollar view from Brentwood on the Beach!

Kentucky Derby Day!

~Happiest when stitching~

I am always happiest when stitching every day except on Kentucky Derby day. Some of you may not know but I am horse crazy, I grew up riding horses. My grandfather gave me a pinto pony when I was 5 years old, when I grew to a teenager I had a morgan mare, Angel, a Tennesee walking horse named Jojo, a buckskin quarter horse named Gunsmoke, and an Apoloosa named Montana. Every year since I can remember I have watched The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and The Belmont. I look so forwaed to it, my dear hubby always says but it only lasts a couple of minutes. That is true but what an exciting few minutes it is. I love it! If you have never watched tune in today it is worth the watch believe me! I will be glued to my TV that is for sure!!!!!
I will stitch tonight, not this afternoon.

The Royal wedding

I so enjoyed watching the royal wedding, Prince William and Princess Catherine both looked so very happy. Princess Diana would have been so proud to see her handsome son marry a lady he is obviously so in love with. Prince Harry seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself as well. My DH was working last night so I watched it all by myself and I loved every minute of it. I may watch it again tonight. It all went perfectly, there was an incident where a horse stumbled and the rider went flying but that was minor and I am sure not to many people noticed or so we can hope???
It was a fairy tale wedding and so beautiful. God bless them both!

Found my cable!

This is my latest project, one of my fellow stitchers finished this last year, I fell in love with it and knew I had to stitch it. It is fun to stititch and I am looking forward to the finished project. Let me know what you think.

Rainy Sunday!

Today was the day I was suppose to download some photos and let you know what I have been working on. Guess what I cannot find the cable to download from my camera to my photo program. I have searched and searched to no avail. Maybe sometime soon. I always leave the cable in my desk, where it is I have no idea. My DH never uses it so I cannot blame him.
DH is working this evening so I have lots of time oh well I guess I will have to stitch. Poor me, I guess a girl just has to do what she can do.
It was a beautiful day here yesterday but today it is cloudy, rainy and damp.
My friend Jayne came to stitch with me on Thursday, what a good time we had. She is just great and I love spending time with her. We are starting a project together at the retreat on May 27th. Our Stitching Sister's are counting the days, four days at the Brentwood by the Beach on the wonderful shores of Lake Huron. I hope we have good weather. If not we will have to stitch inside and not in our chairs by the water. That is ok too. We have a full house this year. So much fun. I will post photo's when we get home that is if I find my camera cable.
I am off to stitch, enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone!
