How many of you have brunch on Sundays? Or a later breakfast on Sundays? We just got back from brunch with my cousins and their 2 super cute little girls. One is 2 yrs old and the other 2 months. So much energy, and so much fun. The older one just loves hugs, and being familiar with us, we even get squeezes :) So cute you can only squeeze them back right?!
My start for yesterday is Examplar Dames And they Sinned. Yes, I am officially on the ATS wagon and loving it. I even pulled up my blog just now to see what was 'new' and saw Michelle was working on hers too. YGG!! Funny how she got through stitching her cloud by watching Sopranos. I love Sopranos. Not for the faint of heart though, but for me too, it is easy to watch 'seasons' of it at a clip. Well, that and the Godfather movies. But, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro arent too hard to watch for long periods of time, but we are going off on a tangent, and this paragraph with these such types of graphics/stories, isnt what we should be talking about with ATS right? Get back on track here...........Focus, Focus!!!!! LOL.
Showing once again the gorgeous silks, (I am going to need more of the thread keepers, with all the starting this month, each must belong to there own right?) I have made some adjustments (I can hear you-- of course you did!! LOL) or for me some improvements, and off I went. We did watch Forever Young with Mel Gibson, which at first, I said to my husband, I hope this gets better...... and Sommersby with Richard Gere, which was better. We try to get 2 movies in a night, and that is when I have been focusing on my stitching. For me, I am not really watching it, just really listening. Either way, the job is getting done in the stitching department. My husband, truly does like my hobby, very supportive- and those that know him, can attest to this. He has been after me to start this one forever. He likes bright colors, as you can see, this month, he is getting quite the variety of color.
You know how the color of the linen changes with every picture? The top pic is more truer in color and taken at night, the bottom was taken this morning. The bottom pic is more like the color of my Dutch Beauty-- however, both pieces were bought at way different times. This piece of Vintage Maritime White has beautiful shadings of green and is very creamy, Dutch beauty is creamy with light patches of gold/beige. You've got to love Lakeside Linen!!!!!! Every piece is like magic.
So what is it going to be today? I already have a very good idea........
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!!
