Happiness............

Another finish goes down in the books! I really enjoyed stitching this adorable piece although I got bored with it when I was about 3/4 of the way finished. Why? Who knows? I'm strange that way....LOL I stitched Happiness on hand dyed linen from R&R Reproductions (or is Productions??). The color is called Snowy Sky which is actually a very pale lavender not light gray the way it looks in this picture. I can't wait for the next one in this series.


I wasn't quite sure what to pick up next although I really wanted to start R is for Rabbits from PS! I controlled myself from starting a new project and picked up 7 Chakras by Cross Stitch Art. I haven't stitched on it since August of last year! I had started on the 3rd Chakra before I put it away though. I'll take another picture when I finish the 3rd one.


I pampered myself a bit on Tuesday after work. I got my hair cut, which I so desperately needed! My bangs were down to my chin! LOL The lady cut them a bit too much, I think, but they'll grow back soon enough. I also got 2" cut off the back. It's amazing how much better your hair feels after a hair cut! Then I hussled right next door to the nail salon and got a pedi. I was the only customer in there and the owner of the salon did my pedicure. She massaged my legs for a good 10 minutes....pure heaven I tell you!! She also gave me a coupon for 20% off my next visit. Yay!

It's beautiful Brenda. What no pics of the hair and toes? :0) I think I know what you mean about getting bored with a project 3/4 of the way done. I've been procrastinating doing the Lilacs in my Spring Maiden something horrible. She's almost done! and I just cant seem to get into it! grrr

I love getting my hair cut and I LOVE LOVE pedis!! I don't know why I don't get one regularly since it's fairly inexpensive!

Such a nice finish, it's beautiful. And great to finish something that had been in the box for nearly a year.
