april 23 - a hermitting weekend
This turned out to be an interesting weekend. The weather was beautiful..sunny and warm. We really needed that sunshine after so much rain!
On Friday, I stopped at Acorns and Threads on my way home because I had an expiring "20% off any one item" coupon burning a hole in my pocket. You would think it would be so easy to spend...but, no! Everything I was looking for was not there. And then I started getting picky about what to buy. It was a little disappointing, but I ended up using the coupon for "Maxim & Zoya" which was on my wishlist and got some threads and two cottage designs that were waiting for me. And then I realized yesterday that I am missing one Anchor thread for a round robin, so I guess I will have to go back tomorrow...and how much do you want to bet that I find lots of stuff to buy then?
I planned on stitching all weekend, but Saturday morning found us out and about running errands...hair color, passport photos, oil changes, groceries...before I knew it the afternoon was upon us and my daughter called to see if we could watch Asher for the night because she got called in to work an extra day. Lots of fun, but not much stitching!
I did get a few things done though. I finished a Workbasket freebie called "Pink Flower" that I received in a freebie kit exchange, started Band 2 of "Dawn of Spring", started my April ornament, and did 99.9% of the stitching for my part of a round robin that I will be sending out this week. And then I couldn't find my camera :(...so I will get that last thread and try to make some more progress tonight and tomorrow, and then take some pictures...I'm sure the camera will turn up someplace!
I hope all you other hermitters had a productive weekend...can't wait to see your pics!
