My low carb world got brighter today! I was so excited while at the grocery store today - at long last, they had Lean Pockets Ultra in stock! Only 12 grams of carbohydrate, and now fun, convenient "junk" food is back in my life! This may seem so small to many, but to me it is huge! I have been a low carb dieter, and very successful at it, for over three years now. I have missed many kinds of foods. Several months ago, I saw an ad for these Lean Pockets Ultra in a woman's magazine, and searched high and low for them. Yay, today I found them - and I like them Way Too Happy - and to top it off, I also found an outstanding new tea today as well - I am so into teas and coffees, as I consider them my "desserts" - I tried Chocolate Caramel Enchantment Chai today, and it is soooo good! A patient of mine turned me on to Honey Vanilla White Chai a couple of months ago. Both are outstanding - great to have when I am stitching.

I had fun today blog hopping for a bit, and I enjoyed visiting the Mirabilia Bulletin Board for quite a while as I looked at people's various thoughts on fabrics for many of the designs - got some great ideas!! I don't think I ever would have considered purple/pink fabrics for Fairy Idyll or Fairy Flora, but some of the finished projects and WIPS shown there were really very nice!

Ooooo, almost forgot - how could I forget this?? - tonight is the season premier of the fourth season of 24 - it is time to sit on the edge of my (stitching) seat for a few weeks and hope that Jack can survive saving the day yet again!!

Stitched on today: Little Wings - moving along quickly, and loving it! Now my desktop is acting up - either my monitor or my video card now, but once we figure that out, I will post a progress scan!

Hmmm... I'd like to try this chocolate caramel tea! I'm afraid I won't find that in France...
Looking forward to your progress pic on Little Wings!
Have a great day :o)

Hi Carol, I just found your blog and checked out your album. Beautiful pieces! Actually what caught my eye the most is where you live :) I live "near" Boston and work in Marlborough, MA and travel up to Plaistow, NH quite often to visit my uncle and 3 young cousins.

Well just wanted to say "hi", keep up the blogging, i look forward to following more of your stitching progress!
