Friday!! :-)

I got a bit of a late start tonight, but I did manage to get quite a bit more of the ribbons finished on Earth Angel. Now I need to finish the ribbon that comes up from the bottom and ends up alongside the wing... a second try at that, that is - I hope for better results this time! Then I just have to add the little gold beads....

I got a little treat tonight on ebay - something off of my wish list that I had never really thought I would be able to find at a good price.... but I did tonight! This is Michael Powell's Tuscan Gardens II. It is a full kit.... OK, want to make sure I stitch this one soon!!!!!!

The season ended today for the Red Sox.... you have to have good pitching to win a championship, and the Red Sox ran out of pitching gas weeks ago... I just hope they rectify that in the off season... and keep Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon here, please!!! I say, Go Angels! They are my second favorite team - I still have my little red Rally Monkey from the 2002 post season... and they won the World Series that year :-) I am a big Garret Anderson fan, and the Angels have Orlando Cabrera now... so they have my full support now! And, thanks Angels for beating the Yankees tonight!

Mmmmm, three day weekend! Columbus Day is Monday and I am not going to work - woo hoo!

Stitched on today: Earth Angel

OOHHH, that is a beautiful pattern. I love his stuff. I also love the progress you posted on wisdom from yesterday!!
Sorry to hear about the Sox:( Hopefully the Angels will do well in the next round. I think of all the teams still in it, they would be my top pick too.

I had to scroll down and see what you were talking about for the EA because she looks finished in the picture. You're so close!

That Tuscan Gardens pattern is incredible. It looks like a painting.

Your Earth Angel is looking really good. I know you had a hard time with the flowers but they're worth it - very pretty.
Congratulations on your ebay win - I've been very tempted by those Michael Powell kits but they are expensive. Hope you enjoy it.

the gold circle are beads? For some reason I thought they were stitched or where french knots. So close on EA and the other updates are doing just as well.
