This one's got like 5 buds on 1 branch thingie!!
I hurried up and put BoINK in the lap frame. I'm going to finish up the black in the last square and along the bottom right corner before putting it back up again.
A gauntlet was thrown a week or two ago in my Yahoo cross stitch group. The deal is to pick up a UFO (sigh.......) and put a few strings in it a week till it's finished. So, I chose an MSAL that we had started in said group from last year. I haven't stitched on it since May 27, 2008! Here's a pic of what it looks like. I just need to finish some minor stitching and the backstitching (yeah, my favorite) and it's done! So, that will be my project in the coming days.
I've been fighting really bad headaches the past couple of days. And I think it's because of my glasses. I never had the script on them changed. When I wear my contacts, I don't get those stabbing headaches. I guess it's time to break down and shell out the money to get my glasses fixed to the right prescription.
We've been having beautiful, spring-summer weather the past week and it's continuing straight through this weekend. I'm thinking of going to hang out on the porch this afternoon before the dreaded, humid weather of summer really comes to stay for the next 5 months.
Hope y'all are having a great weekend!!

Did anyone catch the Hallmark Movie on CBS last night? Wow! What a courageous, beautiful woman Irena Sendler was. She helped 2500 Jewish children escape the Warsaw Ghetto during WWII. What a generous, loving heart this woman had. I don't know if these movies are replayed, but if they are, it's a movie well worth watching.

My weekend was very low key. I finished the garden area where the hibuscus bushes are. I still need to tackle the part by the rose bushes....sigh....... I'll start on it sometime this week, I suppose.
I'm also almost finished with Q is for Quilter. I should be posting the finished pic tomorrow.
My Easter was quiet. I was wanting barbecued ribs for some strange reason. So that's what I made yesterday. They came out very tender, but they didn't taste like I wanted them to taste. I wanted them to be a tad bit sweeter. I think next time I'll play around with the sauce and see what I come up with. The family enjoyed it though so that's what counts :)

I really didn't have anything to plant just yet especially since a damn cold front came through that night! I will be heading back to Lowe's this weekend for some pretty, colorful flowers to put down. I can't wait till my seedlings start sprouting! LOL Although the sweet peas are ready to do in the ground. I'll take pics of the garden when it's more or less show worthy :)
I know it's been awhile since I've posted a stitchy update. I haven't been much on the stitching lately, no particular reason for it. Just wasn't in the mood, I suppose. Till now!
A friend and her husband made this gorgeous lap stand for some of the ladies in our Yahoo cross stitch club. As soon as I got it, I knew that I had to try it out! Wow! The lap stand makes a world of difference! They're wonderfully made and sturdy. The wood is so smooth and it's lightweight! Just perfect.
