Who'da thunkit?

LOL! You know that headache I had for a week?  Well all it took to cure it was a night out with my hubby and a margarita and a half at Chili's. hee hee..  Rob surprised me Friday by finding some friends to watch the kids and taking me out to Chili's for dinner!  It was delicious and so nice to relax.  And as mentioned above, the margaritas did the trick! Weird huh? Mind you, alchoholic beverages are not going to become my headache medicine. ;-)

And here is my progress pic on my LK flip-its- not as far as I thought I would get but after Hanna goes to bed I've been working on her Christmas present- once I make some progress I will post it here as she doesn't read my blog, unless it's over my shoulder once in a while as I'm typing. 

I am going to be listing a couple of items on ebay if anyone is interested-  the pattern and leftover threads from Bent Creek's Blackbird House zipper-
and a cross stitch mousepad kit- it has been opened but all the original items are in there. My ebay ID is hannasmom1198. :)
And last but not least, here is a picture of some trees near our townhouse- sorry the pic is not of the full trees but I didn't want the neighbors' vehicles in the photo.

I really wanted to wait til the middle tree had turned also, but I was afraid the leaves would be off of the other two by then!

Love you start on the lizzie Kate. A nice out is well deserved. Sometimes we all need to just relax.

Jennifer said...

Your progress looks great!

Good for you that you had some relaxing time....headache or no headache, you deserve it!
We have a good local Mexican restaurant that has great Texas Margaritas which sends my worries away temporarily....LOL

The Bent Creek piece is going to be cute, cute......

Boy, that must have been some headache, Tracey! I tend to get bad ones when the weather changes quickly so maybe that had something to do with it? Glad you're feeling better..

Cute start you have there :)

Glad you're better. Nice card and nice start on LK. :)

Robin said...

Love the card! You did a great job. I'd love the Blackbird house if you haven't listed it yet. What are you asking for it?

who knew a night out and a lil bit of alcohol could cure a headache! :)

Two more great books!

No new stitching progress as these two books have had me wrapped up- two more that I did not want to put down! Received this from NetGall...
