Ryan Newman makes the Chase for the Nextel Cup!
It is Saturday, and that means it was time to finally get to stitch on Mermaid Heaven again. I have a really hard time with putting this project down once I start stitching on it. I had a small happy dance tonight by finishing my first page (part 2/8) and moved on to part 1/8 tonight... of course, because I wanted to get the mother mermaid's face stitched... always do like to get that done as soon as I can!
I am happy to have won a couple of bids on fabrics over on ebay tonight - I managed to sign on just in time to get these bids - a fat quarter of Lakeside Linens 28 ct Mocha.... .... and a fat quarter of Sugar Maple Fabrics Murky Depths belfast - this one looks very interesting :-) I can't believe I got around those two bidders who won't let others get hand dyed fabrics on ebay lately - LOL!
Red Sox 9, Yankees 2- woo hoo, we took a big one from the Yankees and widened our lead back up again - thank you Curt Schilling and Manny Ramirez - both looked like their old selves again today - right when we needed them :-)
I received a big box of daylilies from ebay today and spent a good part of the afternoon preparing them and planting them in my garden. I am really excited about these - The red one is Ablazing Rimfire...
...the bicolor here is Appomattox... I won't go and crowd up my entry with all the photos, but I also got Sally Jetton, Rocket City, Golden Angel, Rose Emily, Ice Carnival and New Note as well. I can't wait to see who blooms next July :-)
And, Ryan Newman made the chase for the Nextel Cup tonight!! He is 10th in points, but HE IS IN! Woo Hoo!!
I give an A++ to Monster-In-Law - I got a chance to watch that today while Mike was helping his cousin hang sheetrock in our basement. I laughed through the entire movie. It had no slow moments at all. If you haven't seen this one, you might want to give it a try!!
It was an amazingly good day today :-)
