Some Reading & Stitching

Hello Ya'll. It is only Wednesday and I have been busy this week. I went to the Library Monday. Checked out about 8 books. Do I think I can read all those in 2 weeks.. I read 4 books just last week.... I did get some books on cd. I love Janet Evanovick - Stephanie Plum books. I have read all the books so far she has out. I decided to get the books on CDs. The library had Three Plums in One. #'s 1,2, & 3 of the Plum series. I also checked out Between the Plums on CD. Has Visions of Plums, Plum Loving and Plum Lucky. They are funny to listen to. I stitch and laugh while I listen. They are great! If you haven't read the books, try listening to the CD's.

This is what I have been stitching on:
This is the other ornament I started. It is the Candy Corn Ornament. It is stitched on Java State Garden 30 ct Linen, using DMC. Some of the other ornaments have fibers and I have had to order them.


I got some stash in the mail today. I ordered several charts that I had seen on other blogs. Had to have them...



I seen this stitched by Bonnie Olson. She is in The Samplermakers group with me. I contacted her and found out it is a pattern by Red House Designs called Bumble Beauty. This picture doesn't do it Justice. The designs on the bees body are Quaker. It anyone is interested in ordering this chart. Here is Red House's site - http://www.redhousecrafts.com/. I also got all this in the mail:


These are: Circle - The Workbasket Design. Lizzie Kate Design -Peace, Love and a Cure. This one I am doing for the Breast Cancer auction. I am going to stitch it on larger count fabric and make a tote bag. The saying will be on the front of the bag. Here are the other:


Plum Street Designs - Fishes & Bait. I am going to stitch that one and put it in Josh's Bathroom. It is my front bathroom and it is painted blue. I call it Josh's because he is potting training and that is his bathroom. It has his hand soap, hand towels and wipes.. LOL The other design is Eggs A Plenty II - Homespun Elegance Designs. I also have Eggs A Plenty I. Boy.. Did I have a big mail day!!!

Fresh Vegetable Soup cooking with Hot Cornbread. YUM !

Till later.....

Love the bee pattern! Thanks for the link as I've never seen that one before. My husband keeps real bees so I'm always on the look out for bee patterns. :)
