Good Monday Morning!

Greetings fellow bloggers!
Today my kids are back at school. I am a little sad that we are back into a routine...I do enjoy having them around....youngest is always going somewhere, having friends it's back to just me and the dog...LOL
My goodness!!
Saturday turned out to be as warm as summer here! We broke records on the temps! Fabulous day!!
Anyway, I think I will get some phone calls made, stitching done..."maybe" start a new Plum Street to perk my mood up.....(it's foggy, and dark, that's my excuse!) and ofcourse the ever dreaded housework!
Have a great day everyone! Pop on over to The Thread Gatherer Debbie has a great givewaway going on!!
Take care my friends

Good morning everyone! For the past week or so we have enjoyed FANTASTIC! SPRING LIKE weather! Also, this is spring break week for my younger two! We didn't do anything spectacular, but did do things close to home each day..
I've been doing some stitching! Seems like almost everything I work on these days is by Plum Street Samplers! I still have my morning project on the go, but didn't work on that this week, so no update on that....(Ink Circles)...but here is a couple of photos of Still Waters....and also, I threw this small one into the mix...."Ye Olde Woolery Shoppe.....stitched on 32 count linen.

I also received my order from Amy at Down Sunshine Lane .

I am off to the movies this youngest, her friend and I are going to see Diary of a Whimpy Kid...

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Good morning everyone!! **EDITED to add that I am linking to Leslie at My Country Home for Whatcha working on Wednesday once again (it's been a while!) Check out her Blog and her wonderful work!!

I've been stitching this past week....(okay, when do I NOT stitch?)

Here is my "morning" project update...."This Heart of Mine".....

The above one is an actual "true" colour one, not sure what happened to the one above this!
And here is my Plum Street Samplers "Still Water's" update...I am still enjoying this project SO much! It's been great therapy......and this was one of my mom's favourite Hymns....

"Mary Margaret" by Carriage House Samplings arrived in the mail this week! Can't wait to start her, but I am going to be good and get more done on "Still Waters".
I have a question for all you ladies out there...where do you get your Longaberger Baskets? A lot of you seem to have these wonderful baskets displayed around your home? I have ONE. I found it at a second hand store years ago. Can you buy them in stores? I am going (hopefully) to Maine in a couple of weeks (if all works out with the girl I'm travelling with) and was wondering...I'd love to have some more of these great baskets!! Do they have stores, or what??

Thanks for your help...

Anyway, have a great day looks like it's going to be a sunny, springy day here!!

Take care
