Monday, Monday...

Isn't that a song? I confess, I am music-illiterate - I usually have my Zune playing 24-7 but I listen to books, not music. I am currently listening to "Consent To Kill" by Vince Flynn - he is a fantastic author and one of the writers for "24".

I had such a good weekend, I'm sad that it ended so quickly. I finished A Bird In Hand - it was a quick stitch and I will package it up today and send it off to Deb for finishing. If you are interested in the chart let me know and I will be happy to pass it on.

On Saturday, my friend had a jewelry show at her house - her sister-in-law makes the most amazing jewelry. After much deliberation, I decided on this black & white necklace.

Necklace designed and created by Paige Weaver

My new project is crocheting baby afghans. I have three friends that are expecting - two are due in January and the third is due in March. Each blanket will be white and then bordered in pink or blue. I enjoy crocheting but prefer to spend my time cross stitching.

My precious little cousin turned 3 this past week ~ Happy Birthday, Sarah!

I hope you each have a wonderful week full of stitching time.

Great finish on your Bird in Hand, Cari! I'm excited to see what Deb does with it. Mine will be packed off to her, too, when it's done!

Love the necklace--how cool! I wish I could make jewelry. I'm nearly afraid to try to learn--I get obsessive about stuff too easily.

Good luck with the afghans--the one you showed is beautiful. Add that to the list of things I wish I could do!
