Sushi boats and giveaway goodies!!

The other day I received my giveaway from Robin - it made my day cause I was really having a bad Monday- and this was a spot of sunshine in it all! I know she posted pics on her blog when she had the giveaway, but I thought I'd post some too..

Isn't this a lovely journal? I love the quote on it- I even have it written in a book of favorite quotes/poetry somewhere. :)  Thank you so much Robin!
I also won a book on Goodreads! I was notified yesterday. I won The First Rule.  I'm really looking forward to receiving it and checking it out!
A friend of ours from Illinois is taking a class near by for a couple of weeks, so he stopped in to see us last night.  We went to Hanna's concert at school then all went our for sushi. Look what we got:

A boat full of sushi!!! It was delicious!! And very artistic. I wish I would've had a real camera to take a picture.  Although two women sitting at the sushi bar already thought I was a bit weird for taking a picture of our dinner.. lol.  We had just never had one of these before!
On the stitching front- still stitching away on gifts and ornaments. I am hoping to finish my Brightneedle ornament tomorrow.. unfortunately I don't even know if I am going to give it away- it's so dainty and pretty!!  lol Speaking of stitching.. that is what I should be doing right now.. so until later..

Never had sushi either - but the idea of serving it in a boat sounds fun.

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,...
