Luck is FINISHED!!!!

As you can see, Luck has been finished! I finished it last night and was ecstatic when I made that last stitch in the letter "K"! LOL

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!!

Congratulations! Nothing better than finishing a UFO. Just one thing is better: start a new project, lol.
