Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello friends! I have been very busy these past few days and haven't had the time to write. I went with my newcomer friends to Ponte Vedra this week for a cooking class. We learned how to make homemade ravioli and marinara sauce from scratch. The ravioli were delicious and I had a lot of fun making the marinara sauce. We also made a dessert ravioli using wonton wrappers. On Saturday, we went with my friend Linda and her mother to a craft show in Jacksonville. We had a lot of fun and we ate lunch at a very cute little diner called Johnny Angel's.

I have been busy stitching this week and I completed a piece from Plum Street Samplers. Once finished, it will be an Altoid tin topper filled with candy corn just in time for Halloween.

I am currently working on a Halloween piece from The Drawn Thread. I'm not sure how much I like it so I don't know if I will continue with it. I am totally in Halloween mode and I am constantly digging in my stash to find Halloween related pieces to do. Well, my youngest caught a cold and I have been taking care of him all day today. I am in mommy mode! Blessings.

I'm A Student And A Finish

Hello folks! I, along with Bonnie started piano lessons today. I used to play when I was a child and I was very interested in starting again. Bonnie's teacher had an opening and I started today! I was so excited that I woke up at four this morning in anticipation of today's lesson. I felt just like I did when each new school year would roll around and today was a wonderful reminder of days past. Bonnie was also very excited to begin her lessons again as she has practiced almost every day since her lessons ended last spring.

I have also been busy stitching and finished a piece by Little House Needleworks called "Pumpkins". It is one of Diane's thread packs using Crescent Colours threads. I stitched it on 28 count Light Mocha Cashel Linen. Here is a pic!

I started a Pine Mountain Designs pillow yesterday for my friend Linda. She has admired my work and I thought that she needs something special for her home from me. It has been very rainy here and I am wondering when we will see the sun again. Have a wonderful week and blessings to you!
