My son gave me a break from cooking dinner this weekend, too! Saturday we had a braided bread stuffed with all sorts of goodies, and Sunday he made a chicken stir fry. Both were delicious!
We made a run to Half Price Books on Sunday and I treated myself to some books on CD. A friend of mine had recommended the Stephanie Plum series of books by Janet Evanovich. So far I'm enjoying the heck out of them, and it's sooo great to be able to stitch while I listen! These are read by Lori Petty. Her voice was familiar but the name wasn't ringing any bells. I looked her up on IMDB and had to scan down the list pretty far before it clicked... she played Kit in A League of Their Own.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

This week’s SBQ was once again suggested by Danielle and is:
If you had $500 to spend on stitching-related items, what would you buy?
What a fun question! I could definitely put a dent in my Wish List with $500! I'm still drooling over so many of the new releases from the Nashville Market! And I'd love to add to my Crescent Colours collection! Most of all I'd like to splurge on a nice, sturdy floor stand. And I'd put anything left over (ha ha!) in a "future framing fund"!
And from last week:
Do you use your needle, a seam ripper, or something else when you have to frog stitches? Why do you use the method that you do?
Most of the time I just use my needle because I have it right there, especially if it's only a few stitches. For bigger jobs, I'll grab my "stitch fixer" which is just like a needle, only bent slightly at the end and attached to a wooden handle so you have something a little more "substantial" to hold on to.

I was hoping to get outside today to do some spring cleaning in the yard but last night's thunderstorm has left the flower beds a little too soggy for me to work in. I have an extremely low tolerance for wet gardening gloves! I'll just have to find something productive to do indoors!
Thank you for the comments regarding my Spring Zipper. I think I'm going to use it for some finishing practice, and if all goes well I'll gift it to someone. :-)

This week’s was suggested by Danielle and is:
Do you find yourself stitching faster when you are getting to the end of a design?
My guess is I do stitch a little faster towards the end, mainly because that's when I tend to make the most mistakes! It's either the speed of my needle or my mind being on that next project!
