Uneventful weekend

Stayed around the house mostly,but was lazy with my stitching! Didn't get much done. I worked on the "surprise" I'm working on, and a bit on Christ in Gethsemane. I love working on that one, but it is frustrating cause even when I work on it for a while I feel like no one will be able to tell yet! Maybe after I work on it this week I will post a pic.
We watched a funny British horror movie over the weekend, "Shaun of the Dead." Kind of gross in parts, but funny!!
We are anxiously awaiting David to roll over.. he keeps looking like he's going to but then doesn't.. maybe soon.. he is "talking" up a storm tho, always cooing and making noises! It's adorable!
Oh well.. not much going on otherwise.. gonna go have some ice cream.

quick post

Was lazy most of the day yesterday, then a friend brought her kids over for us to watch for a couple of hours. They were really good and had a good time, in fact the older one stayed the night so Hanna had her first sleepover. I don't feel old enough to have a child that wants to have friends spend the night. lol

David is doing great. He is such a smiley baby I just love it.

Stitch-wise, haven't gotten as much done this past week as I had hoped. Worked a little on my strawberry scissors case and a little on the surprise I am working on.. hopefully I will get more done today but I don't know.. am getting lazy about the laundry again and it's piling up. Sigh.... also have dishes to do.. will try to knock those out early in the day.
Well better get going, have to feed the baby and get ready for church!

Catching up

I keep meaning to get on here and just haven't gotten around to it..

First Happy 4th to all my friends here in the USA! No big plans for us today, just cooking on the grill and staying around the house. Don't want to get on the road unless absolutely necessary for fear of those who have had one too many.
David is sleeping through the night for the most part- he started on the 30th of June. He woke up last night but he is sleeping thru more nights than not. He is starting to grab toys and things, it's so neat to watch!
I'm making some progress on my stitching, trying to work on things now to get them finished, so I don't feel so guilty about starting something new! I may try to finish my L*K strawberry scissors case today, it was fast becoming a UFO and have been actively working on it again. I've also been working on a secret project to surprise a friend of mine.
As for reading, I've been reading the Monica Ferris books based around a fictional needlework shop called "Crewel World". When I am done with these I am going to read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Generally I don't like to read books before I see the movie, but they have done so well with the Harry Potter movies I don't think I need to worry in this case.
Well guess I better go.. laundry calls and stitching too!

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
