Monday, Monday...

Why does it seem like all good intentions get side-tracked? I was planning on spending all afternoon/evening stitching on the DT Game Board SAL. It was out... ready to go... Put a few stitches in. Chuck (DH) decides he should mow the lawn. No problem, but, as I go outside, I see the deck furniture really needs a good wash up. So... yes, I did that. A few more stitches in... Chuck asks if I want to go to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls to get a better feel of my new golf clubs. How could I refuse that offer? Back home -- burgers on the grill -- yummy -- and I'm ready to settle in for stitching! Get a few stitches in, Rick (son) calls... "Mom? I would like to get a new comforter for my bed, and stuff. Will you go with me to the store, and help pick out something nice?" Now, how could I refuse that?! Only thing, my son drives a jeep. It is always a laughing attack for me to get into the thing! He (with my help) picked out a nice black/grey shades patchwork comforter, sheets, shams, dust ruffle thing, and new pillows. (He has a thing for black). Back home -- can I just stitch now??? Becca (daughter) and her friend come home from a church youth function. Friend needs a ride home. :::sigh::: Took friend home, and gosh... now I get to pick up my stitching! It's ten o'clock and I realize I haven't accomplished hardly anything! Therefore -- progress today was practically nil!!! I stitched the 'P & Q' in the top border. Started on the house block twice under the BCD. (had to frog the first time -- miscounted) No picture. Not enough done to show any progress!! I will insist on my stitching time next Sunday!

Today I am goofing off, trying to decide whether to work on CCN Ladybugs and Bumblebees, or try out one of the new threads I got from Nancy, with a little freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs. I think the freebie is going to win out!

Have a great Monday! Thanks for reading...

Sometimes that the way it goes - good thing it is a "no pressure" SAL!

Looking forward to seeing a pic of that freebie you are stitching!

I think our stitching on Sunday will never happen -- b/c of Mother's Day. I got MIL gift in the mail (Monday) and need to get ahold of my Mom. I found a gift for her & would like to get it over to her.

Hey GF, don't you have a frog charm to wart off mistakes???? I even wear a silver frog earring at times. Does it work -- well, maybe ... LOL

I like the Ladybugs & Bumblebees & would like to see more. OOOh -- want to view the freebie, too. Have fun.
