almost...but, not quite

I didn't end up finishing this part of Mystery IX tonight. I simply was too tired and too distracted... then, after I thought I could actually find it within myself to finish this part, I stitched those clumpy flowers that look just like nuclear warheads. Man, was I ever disappointed in those! So, I sighed and put it away. I will finish the last little bits up tomorrow...

Yay, it is the weekend!
Finally! Ryan Newman, who is nicknamed "Rocket Man" because he wins an awful lot of poles (first starting position for races), ended his drought! About 1/3 of the way into the season, and he still had no poles! He got one today for Sunday's race! Not to bore you, sorry! He is just one of my favorite people in the world, has done things I admire immensely. So, congratulations to Ryan! Good luck on Sunday - he hasn't won yet this year either... (photo is from and while giving kudos to one favorite athlete, will also give them to Kevin Youkilis of the Boston Red Sox! Thank you, Kevin, for your ninth inning, two out, two run home run that blasted the Red Sox past the Detroit Tigers tonight! That was cool!

Stitched on today: Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler (a tiny bit), Quaker Garden (a tiny bit), and Mystery IX

Sounds like a good day for your favorite sports folks! ;) Your Mystery IX looks good to me?

Yeah, but they're BLUE nuclear warheads, so I think they're lovely ;P Sorry to hear you're not enjoying your latest stitching - hopefully it won't take long before you get it finished and can move on to other things :D {hugs}

Mystery looks lovely Carol. Anne made me laugh with her comment about the nuclear warheads being blue, she's definitely a lover of blue things!!!

Hope Ryan Newman wins for you on Sunday.

Your stitching looks nice. I'm not a race fan, but I am a baseball fan. BOO Bosox!! Watched the game last night, thought the Tigers had the game wrapped up. LOL! I guess it's true, the game's not over 'till it's over. I started stitching a new project, might post photo later, but I found I have to adjust the pattern and so might have to rip out stitches. (Yuck).

Have a good weekend.
