Quiet Friday

I just finished reading The Silver Boat by Luanne Rice.  I really enjoyed it.  But I seem to be partial to books set on Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, as well as those set in South Carolina.  Dorothea Benton Frank, Elin Hilderbrand, Nancy Thayer all have written books set in these locales. 

I promised I'd share photos of the other members of our stitching group this post...
Betty does beautiful work. Some of her favorite designers are Barbara and Cheryl.  She has stitched several of their pieces and has them framed in her home.
Cathy is working on As the Crow Flies.  She is a talented stitcher, and has done several beautiful Prairie Schooler pieces as well as many others.

Dorothy is working on Winter by Cross Eyed Cricket.  She has recently completed a beautiful nativity piece done over one thread.  It looks like a painting. 

That completes our group.  We do have fun getting together to stitch. We were at Susie's house this past Monday.  She has just moved into a new house, that has a wonderfully large kitchen.  So we enjoyed a house tour before starting to stitch.

I have done more reading today than stitching.  But, I hated to put the book down, since I saw I was going to be able to finish it today.  Maybe I'll go look for a movie to watch and pull out my stitching.  It was really nice to have the day off today...  I got a few chores accomplished too, so the day wasn't totally lazy..

Happy Stitching!


  1. Nice stitching group! I know that feeling -- to read or to stitch. lol! Tonight stitching won out, but that's not always the case. This is why I like audiobooks. :D

  2. lovely to see other stitcher's happily stitching and what they are stitching on too :)... I read my books at bed time to chill out before snoozing :) love mouse xxxx

  3. What a great group of stitchers. I wish I knew more stitchers around me.

  4. So nice that you have a group that gets together! I only really have one other stitcher that is close to me.
