Back to reality!

Spring Sampler from Prairie Schooler # 60
32 ct Summer Storm from Silkweaver, DMC threads



So now when the weekend is over it's back to reality with the kids at home. Wonder what we will do this summer? I'm heading to the gym and the park today and I'm hoping to do the zoo and the childrens museum this week too. Someone told me that the pool has opened but it's a bit to cold to go yet.

Yesterday I dragged DH to 4 different nurseries to look at trees and we still ended up getting two at Wal Mart. We only wanted to find something cheap since they are still going to fix up the lot behind us and although they are only going to even it out, seed it and hopefully plant trees on it I know that there's a risk that they will end up in our yard and kill plants and trees.

Last time they did something major they killed quite a bit for the neighbor and I don't think they reimbursed him ever.

So I'm not spending a lot of money on that part of the yard yet. But we found 2 little maples (sticks really) and got them in the ground. DH says that next tree has to be something different, we now have 5 maples.

My foot is starting to get better, my body is adjusting to the celebrex. Hopefully it will heal so I don't have to get The Shot. It sounded pretty bad when the Dr talked about The Shot, so I'm kind of hoping to avoid it.

Seems like both my blogging and stitching mojo came back when I started stitching on something else. I finished my Spring Sampler late Saturday (yay) and picked up St Basil's Cathedral from Dimples Designs that I'm stitching for Mel's birthday. It's going real well, I have to share a progress pic soon. My scanner is throwing a hissy fit at the moment, sorry for the cut off pic but it was my 4th try. And all of the sampler is there.

Congrats on finishing PS Sping Sampler. It looks great! I've not ever seen this pattern before. Are there Summer, Winter and Autumn samplers too? If so, do you have those too?
Sounds like you've had a nice weekend. Julie

Your samler looks very beautiful!! That snail is so cute. Where have you grown ?? Your name sounds very much Swedish. There was just fourth part of the yarn store shown in photo. Other parts were full of national dresses and other crafts (except new things like scrapbooking). I´ll post some day other photos as well.

Congrats! On your beautiful PS. It looks great. I just love the BOAF Valentine, I have not been able to get my hands on this pattern yet. I just got BOAF Halloween Holiday and finished that in no time at all. I like your gameboard too. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. Ranae

Love your Spring Sampler, it's very pretty.

Be careful about those trees, a few years back our neighbor spent days taking down trees and then we realized he was taking down OUR trees.
