Vase and Vine

I'm zipping right along on A Wish For You! The vase has been re-stitched in it's proper place, and it's viney vegetation is almost complete. I'll get the leaves (or are they flowers?) stitched next and then it might be time to tackle the over one verse. Better double up on the ginkgo biloba and get my frog swatter out before I do!

We've had a couple of days in the 70s here with the temps dipping into the 40s at night. Time to rediscover the oven! I made a cozy chicken and wild rice casserole for dinner the other night, and this morning we had blueberry muffins. (If I ever wrote a book it's title would have to be "Eat Eat Eat", although I don't expect Julia Roberts to be too enthusiastic about playing the role of the main character after I sell the movie rights!) (Have you ever wondered who would play you in a movie??)

Quite pleased with the Rangers performance the past few days. They played a four game series against the Twins and won three out of the four. I was able to watch two of the games on TV which was doubly nice since they were home games and I got to see my beloved Ballpark at Arlington! Triply nice if you consider I spent the duration of both games working on my stitching! My version of bliss!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by to visit!

Your stitching looks great. I just picked up the flosses to start on this project. I'm planning on doing all of them on 1 piece of linen.

Stitching and watching/listening to baseball is my idea of heaven too! And my beloved Cincinnati Reds are playing great (for the first time in 20 yrs - LOL!)

Happy stitching -

Lovely progress on your brick house. The colour combo is lovely and this looks better than what I've seen on the chart photo. I was resisting buying this but...maybe?

I see you are busy with renovations. Gosh I remember those days when we had our first house. It was exciting to see rooms transform...but then we were a lot younger then and had lots more energy!

I'm so glad you came by my blog and left a comment so I could visit you in return!
