Monday, monday....

Another week has flown by..  I'm still stitching on "Spring" by Cricket Collection.  The picture above leaves something to be desired, but you get an idea of where I'm at on the progress anyway. 

Yesterday we saw the sun, it was a refreshing change.  We've had a lot of cloudy, cool days with rain showers. 

We took a drive with a good friend of ours yesterday into the central part of Iowa.  While my hubby and our friend were out hiking around taking pictures, I enjoyed the sunshine and stitched.  I took some photos too, but am not as 'into' the photography as they are.  When I go with them on their jaunts, I always pack my cross stitch bag into the car.  I just didn't get as excited about photographing railroad bridges as they did I guess....ha!

I've been reading Brenda Gervais' blog.  I am enjoying seeing all the progress on the SAL of her eagle sampler.  What a great piece, and great design!  I haven't purchased the chart yet, but really do like it.

Visit Brenda's blog at With Thy Needle and Thread to read about the design and see the progress on the SAL on this beautiful piece.

Edgar is having a drawing for his blogoversary take a look at for the details. 

Thanks to all of you that take the time to read my posts and leave comments.  It is always a thrill to hear from each and every one of you.
