1. I finished my mid-term
2. I finished my final exam (different class then above)
3. Bathrooms cleaned
4. In the Garden completed

5. Our Ladies Night Out went very well. My friend and I organize a Ladies night at church 3-4 times a year. We are blessed in that we have this lovely stone cottage on the church property. It's a very homey, comfortable place to meet. We always a fun, relaxing evening. There is no agenda - everyone brings their favorite appetizer or dessert and we just have an evening of fellowship. Somehow our topic strayed to our local 'flasher' - there have been 83 sightings in the past week - he must be a busy guy (or maybe it's that he's not busy). Who does such a thing and why??? I have never laughed so hard as we all gave our opinion and what we might do if we had the misfortune of running into him . I have to wonder why the police haven't caught him with 83 sightings!

In the Garden Kit
Milady's Needle

I am still waiting for my fabric to arrive for Sarah, so I am working on my small projects that I purchased from Market. The picture below is of the new LaDDa kit - the color is a little off, the fabric is dark but a little more on the gold side. Not sure if I like it yet, but I am going to keep going.

A Bird In Hand Kit
La D Da

Well, that's all folks - nothing new or exciting in my little corner of the world. Enjoy your week and thanks for all the wonderful comments!

Congratulations on all your accomplishments. You must feel great. I love your In The Garden piece. And a flasher that's been spotted 83 times! My gosh! Wouldn't that be something to see something like that. I'd probably laugh my head off!

Margaret said...

Great stuff! Now let's see who gets around to finishing it first. My guess is you! lol! I love your Bird in Hand start. It's funny cause I passed up the kit thinking I didn't like it. But now of course the piece is growing on me. I may have to break down and get the chart.

Congratulations on finishing your exams and on your other accomplishments. That stone cottage where you had your Ladies Night sounds absolutely perfect!

Congratulations on finishing the Milady's Needle A&E piece. It looks lovely. What a fabulous place you have for meetings with your Ladies Night Out event. Sounds like perfection.

Melissa said...

Congratulations. Such a lot of accomplishments! You must be so happy!

All the stitching look lovely!

Jan said...

A great big pat on the back, Cari, for some major accomplishments!!

I love your Milady's Needle finish and your start on A Bird In Hand. Both charming!!

Hope they find that deviate soon!

Michelle said...

Congrats on your Milady's Needle finish! I can't wait to start mine. Congrats too on your accomplishments!!

Siobhan said...

Woohoo!! Congratulations on the finish, and your other accomplishments. :) I love your start on A Bird in Hand, too. I'm anxious to stitch mine.

I had to laugh about the flasher guy. We had one in our neighborhood--it was a guy that two of the neighbors hired to do their yard work. Needless to say, he was fired very quickly!!

Katrina said...

Love your finish! What a cute little A&E piece. Can't wait to see your La D Da as it progresses.

Sounds like a fun ladies night out. Hope they catch him soon, LOL.

Way to go on your accomplishments, Cari! Know you are thrilled to have some of your coursework behind you!

What a wonderful finish and like your new start!

Ladies Night Out sounded fun! Have they caught the flasher yet?


Lois said...

Love your finish and I'll be checking your progress on A Bird in the Hand as this is one that has caught my eye and needs to make its way to my stash. Okay, a flasher who's flashed 83 times?!?! I think he's on borrowed time!

Love to Stitch said...

Wow, I have had my head in a cloud the last few days-- I am so excited to see your stitched A & E box!!!!!! LOVE this one, it is on my list too. Great job!!!!

Yeah for you on accomplishing so many great things - especially exams! The stone cottage on your church grounds so pretty - I can just picture it. What a funny topic and I can just imagine all the giggles about the flasher. In the Garden looks great and ABITH is going to be spectacular (I think it's finished in the next post up -). So sorry I've missed your posts - don't know how in the world that happened.
