DH has been out golfing all week in Vegas with eight of his buddies. His schedule has been so crazy, that he needed a break! They've been having a blast!
Meanwhile, I've gotten a good headstart on my FP! I took this picture on Tuesday, I think! See that stem at the bottom right? There is another full pink flower there and to the left of the middle flower I have the last pink flower started. Below this section there are white flowers, guess I'll go there next!
I almost always save the backstitching to the very end. But with this pattern there is a TON of it, and I think I might just stitch it as I go...still deciding! DH and I have a drive to FL coming up and I might do the backstitching while we are driving. We'll see!
Here's FP all spread out in my stitching chair! This thing is gonna be huge!
I learned a new southern word Wednesday night at church. The pastor kept saying "fistacuff". Like those boys were getting in a fistacuff. So I guess it means they were using their fists, like in a fist fight?
And I forgot one! Stories!! Do you know what stories are? To my nothern mother they are books you would read to children, obviously! To my MIL, they are "her stories", which she religiously records and watches every day! Did you guess it? Yup: Soap Operas!
And last but not least here's a little TMI for the weekend! I have ALWAYS had the horrid habit of chewing my fingernails! Really, I just couldn't ever stop! Every once in a while I'd notice my fingernails were getting long, and I'd try to keep them nice and then within the day they'd be gone again!
So when we were in Honduras, I noticed my fingernails weren't chewed to my wrists....but since I was in a foreign country I was a little scared to put my fingers in my mouth! :) So here we are almost a month later and look how nice my fingernails are!
And not just one hand either! Both hands, all fingers...nice and pretty! I've even trimmed them TWICE! Seriously, in all the 33 years of my life, this is the longer my nails have been ever!!
And can somebody tell me why my fingers are crooked?! :)
I've gotta straighten up the house before DH gets home tonight, do a little work, stitch on my friendship RR, do the finishing for a spring exchange, do my Bible study, pick up Andrew from school, help with an ice cream party in Luke's class (after I get Andrew...which should be VERY interesting!), feed the boys supper, finish the laundry.... and NOT chew my nails, all before 7:00! Think I can do it?
