Not much stitching...Again!

Here is my progress on Beautie Spot. Boring! I worked on this three nights this week but don't have a lot to show for it.

Now on to non-stitching related things. They play we went to last weekend was o.k. Three of my friends did not make it to the show before the start so they did not get to go. Everyone knew the show started at 4:00 so they just ended up drinking in the bar. Sunday was the Super Bowl Party which was a lot of fun. DH made Buffalo macaroni and cheese with chicken and blue cheese that was to die for. This is not for anyone concerned about calories, cholesterol, heart disease, or high blood pressure because this stuff literally could kill you. Last night was dinner at Crust which is an organic pizza place and it was very good. They had very unique pizza toppings and last night was trivia night but we did not stay for all of that.

This weekend is going to be dreadful. I have a board retreat for the homeless shelter. These weekends are not so bad once you get there but awful to think about giving up a weekend to sit in a boardroom. At least this one is in town and we do not have to go to a hotel or worse, someones summer home with not enough bedrooms or bathrooms but that is another story. I have spent the last year trying to get off the board so I would not have to go to this thing. I am weak and they have talked me into staying on the board until June but at least an end date is in sight.

One of you lovely ladies in blog land mentioned that you enjoy having your Kindle read to you. I had tried this once before and was not all that impressed. I tried it again last week and loved it. Kindle read to me A Proper Pursuit by Lynn Austin. It was a cute book that I really enjoyed. I also finished Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue. This book is not speech enabled so I had to read this one. The book was disturbing but I liked the book. This is our book club selection so at least that is out of the way.

That is about the extent of the excitement around here. Thanks for the nice comments and it has been great talking with some of my new blog friends! Hope everyone has a nice weekend with lots of stitching time.


  1. Beautie Spot does look wonderful even if you haven't made a lot of progress. Any progress is good progress. That is a bummer about the weekend, but hopefully you can get out of these duties by June. It doesn't sound like much fun!

  2. I love the colors in Beautie Spot!!!

    Hope the weekend isn't too bad. My problem with reading is it takes time away from stitching so I listen to books using Audible on my iTouch, love it!!!

  3. I was just e-mailing a friend who is working on Beautie Spotte! Yours looks great! One of the ladies at my LNS did both Beautie & Sonne Spotte and she brought them in to show me. Oh. My. Gosh. Pictures don't show just how pretty they are!

    I am waiting on Room from the library. I normally wouldn't read such an upsetting book but I've only heard rave reviews about it, so hopefully I feel the same. I love Audible--there's nothing better than stitching and listening to a book... well... besides watching Judge Judy and stitching. ;)

  4. Love your Beautie Spotte! I have Sonne in the WIP pile and hope to get back to it soon.
