Rainy days and Thursdays... (and SBQ)

I know that's not how the song goes... but, it would be fitting for today.

Tuesday was a great day for golf! It was my first time out with my new clubs, and I shot a 49. Judy, my golf partner, and I took 18 points! We are off to a great start in this golf league!

No new pictures to post, so, I'll take a page from Sharon, and post a few older ones. She has just started a new blog, and has some great pictures up. Go take a look!

Here is May Flower Cat from Puddin Designs. I finished this into a needleroll. This is fitting for CeeCee today, as he keeps chewing on my artificial tulips!



This is from a Round Robin I did a few years ago. Shadow keeps looking out the window, but, there isn't a lot of activity out there with the rain.



I made up some Potato Soup for supper. I'm thinking it will take the 'chill' off of this rainy day. Then I can stitch the rest of the evening. I spent the morning doing the housework thing, and took a nap this afternoon. Housework is hard work!!

SBQ - May 10, 2006
When you stitch from a kit and use the supplied floss do you have
leftovers? If so, how much and what do you do with them? If not, do
you usually have just enough or do you have to dig into your stash to
finish?

I don't do very many kits, but, the ones I have done seem to have enough floss. I can only think of two that didn't and they were both the overdyed. It might have been the way I stitched, so, I just called the LNS and ordered more. If I tend to have leftovers, I will leave them with the chart, so, if I pass it on, the colors are with it.

On the stitching front: I finished the Blue Ribbon Designs freebie 'The Alphabet Tree', and am stitching on CCN Ladybugs and Bumblebees. I need to get busy on my Quaker Sampler, as I haven't started part 4 yet, and I have two exchanges to stitch up... that all should keep me out of trouble for the rest of the week -- and Sunday is DT Game Board!

Thanks for reading and commenting...

Hi Myrna,
You have made my foray into the blogging world very wonderful. Thanks so much for the nice comments. Yes, I have seen the Quaker mystery sampler and it lurks in the back of my mind. What colors would I choose etc. Not quite ready to commit to it just yet. But it is a very lovely piece.

I loved your cross stitched pieces-of the cats. The black cat reminds me of my cat Silver. You would think with that name he would not be black.

I need a little help-I would love to add the blogs I read to my links. But, I can't seem to figure it out-Help please!

Rainy days & Fridays ... too. Looks like the great lakes region is in for quite a lot of wet stuff thru the week-end. Bah.

I enjoyed looking at your Mayflower Cat & Cat in the window. Cats are interesting creatures LOL

Sorry to hear the weekend will be soggy for you, but your Thursday sounded really nice to me. :) A little housework, a nap, soup, and stitching - simple pleasures are the best! :D
