|My poor, dead, Kindle Fire HDX - rest in peace!!|
That spring loaded embroider hoop is the bomb diggity I tell ya.
I used the hoop and my new needles to create my latest tea towel:
I also purchased the cutest pair of frog salt and pepper shakers a few weeks ago and added them and a frog I found in North Carolina when visiting my Aunties a couple years ago, to my kitchen window. Since my kitchen is green, I think they really add some character.
I love frogs and I have a large variety of them that are for the porch in the summer. They just make me happy.
It's windy as all get out here today and it's only going to get worse with gusts up to 60mph, oh joy. The temps are warmer, but with the big winds, it doesn't feel that warm. This week we found the perfect thing to put up in my sewing room so I can finally hang my birdhouse that the Aunties sent me. CR has the hardware to hang it and said he'd do it this weekend. Speaking of CR, he is such a sweetie. He's currently cleaning the oven after a bit of a disaster I had this week. Isn't he a great guy.
My plans for the weekend are to sew, bake for my Aunties, ship my Kindle back, laundry, grocery shop and probably better do the floors after all the baking - my kitchen floor will have flour issues because I'm baking biscotti and I'm messy.
What are your weekend plans?? Also if you do a lot of hand stitching, embroidery, etc, what are your favorite threads, needles, etc......................?????
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
