Happy President's Day!

Nothing could be finer than a 3 day weekend!
I have been stitching away on CDC. Here is the latest progress shot.

I am so in love with this piece! It's amazing to see the colors together. I am trying to figure out how to paint my bedroom ths color..... of course I am having a hard time convincing DH that any color, other than off white, is an acceptable color for interior walls....

Happy Valentine's Day from DH, my favorite smell, fresh lavender. I love this right in the kitchen window where I can touch and smell when I'm done with those horrible dishes!

And my gift to DH, his favorite, Hydrangea. We hope to be successful and plant this in the yard. I'm not sure it will survive, but we will enjoy it in the house as long as the blooms last.

Please take a minute and visit this webiste, watch the video, and, if you have a few extra coins in your pocket, donate to help the cause, March of Dimes. I have known Jamie since she was a young teen, she & my daughter are good friends. I have been keeping track of Miss Miracle Mollie's progress for most of the past year. I'm so proud of Jamie, and her strength and faith. She is a great mommie!

Well, in honor of President's Day, I'm off to buy new tires for my car. I have a 1pm appointment, my ipod and my latest read "The Russian Concubine" (thanks Deb!!) which I am really enjoying. My reward when I leave the tire shop will be a stop at the Golden Needle to see all the new items from Market and to pick up more Mermaid Shimmer for CDC.

It's a beautiful spring day on the Florida Gulf coast. High today is 82F. Rain expected later today. Come visit!
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Love, love how your CdC is coming out, Martha. It truly is the prettiest I've seen! Thank you for the handmade Valentine's card, you ol' sweetie. I'm never on the ball for those things, though I always have the best of grandchildren's packages just got mailed this past Thursday!! :[ I so appreciate your friendship, Martha. I'm glad you're enjoying the "..Concubine." Hope to see you soon... Hugs, Deb
