I was a good girl and stitched some on Circle of Friends. I don't think I stitched the 20x20 section, but I was itching to get to Quiltmaker. What I think I'm going to try to do is dedicate a week to each of my UFOs (do we still call them UFOs when they're getting worked on??) and see how far I get before I HAVE to start something new or go crazy....whichever comes first!!!

I think my framer did an excellent job as always!! I'd love to get everything I stitched framed, but I haven't won the lottery yet....dammit!!!!!

I also did some gardening last week. I had well established rosebushes and hibuscus that I'd planted when I first moved into my house over two years ago. But the harsh winter we had did them in. Or so I thought. I just yanked everything out except for one rosebush. It wasn't till everything was pulled out and in the trash that my mom decides to mention that maybe I should've waited to see if they would've come back :( Anyways I bought more rosebushes and hibuscus. I find those the easiest to grow and take care of....just water and go! LOL
I did prune this one though. It was wild and out of control!!!

I did finish River Plantation. I loved the way it turned out!!! A friend pulled out her UFOs and got me thinking about mine (thanks, TDee....LOL). So, I pulled out Angel of Summer. Put one string in it and had enough....LOL!!! I will try to be a bit more conscientous of those poor, deprived souls and get some strings in them and see how far I get.

Stitched on 28 ct jobelan

So, then I pulled out Quilting by LHN. I love these projects! So fun and and they finish so fast!! Hopefully, this will be done by this week.
I did do some movie watching yesterday. I saw Twilight: New Moon. I actually liked the first one much better. Bella's getting to that whiny stage that aggravated me throughout all the books. Reading about it and actually seeing it.....two totally different things! LOL But Jacob??? Wow!! He was just GORGEOUS!!! So, that made the movie worthwhile for me :) I also saw District 9. Ehhhh....did NOT like "interview style" of the movie at all!! I was sooo rooting for those aliens, too. Humans were just horrible to those poor things!!!
