My SAL Progress & Weekend Report

I'm really happy with my progress on Random Thoughts. I didn't get much done but I did get to do a few specialty stitches and that's always fun. I'm going to have to scoot my fabric over in the q-snaps so I can work on the left side a little better.

Phil surprised me on Friday with a Spiralizer attachment for our Kitchenaid mixer so I got adventurous and made Lemon-Garlic Broccoli Noodles with Parmesan...
There's supposed to be toasted pine nuts on top but I forgot to sprinkle some on before I took the picture. I was too hungry to re-do the "photo shoot" so you'll have to use your imagination! :-)

Saturday we went to the Krasl Art Fair in St. Joseph, MI. I had some Christmas money still left to spend so I picked up this pretty little chickadee etching...
I love, love, love little birdies!
I had to limit myself to only one but hopefully I'll be able to add to my collection next year!

Sunday was just as lovely a day as Saturday so we headed out for an early lunch and some shopping in South Haven. We ended up buying a swing for the deck so Phil assembled it when we got home and later that evening we were able to relax outside with our wine and watch the boats go by on the lake. We were even treated to a sunset serenade from a guy playing the bagpipes on his pontoon boat!

Which brings us to today!
I've got my lazy pants on and as soon as I have a bite to eat for lunch I'm going to head up to the Chicken Ottoman Empire, find something mindless to watch on TV, and hit the stitchy chair!
