Progress on Shores...

Hello Stitchy Friends.

Happy Saturday to all of you.  I have been looking forward to this weekend. It will be a long one for us.  I had Friday off and will not be back at work until Tuesday.  (yipee!)  Mike has today off and is due back at work Tuesday as well.  Good planning on our part, since today is our 28th wedding anniversary!
Wow, the years go by quickly, don't they?  It doesn't seem like it should be that long.  But, we have a son that will be 24 this July, and a daughter that will be 21 in August. 

We are planning to go out for a nice dinner tonight, we haven't decided where as yet.  It's a beautiful sunny day today, altho a bit colder than what we've had of late.  We did receive about 3" of snow overnight on Thursday.  It made everything look so pretty.  I wish I would have taken the time to shoot a couple of pictures.  It was a heavy wet snow that clung to the trees, bushes and fences.  Not so pretty today, and it's melting quickly. 

I've been stitching on Shores.  I have been enjoying this piece.  I'm still on the third block. 

I am ready for Spring.  Last weekend when out shopping with our daughter, I found this sweet little basket.  It came home with me and sits on the table by my stitching chair.
When I was uploading these pictures from my camera, I found a picture of our son and his girlfriend.  I realized I haven't shared a picture of them yet.
Well, Mike is saying it's time to leave, so better close this post. 

Hope you're all having a great weekend, with lots of time with those you love, and doing what makes you happy.
