OK, all the x's are done now on Fairy Flora :-) But, that doesn't mean I am close to finished yet. I have to do the double row of backstitching around the border (as you can see I did a little bit on the right side), the backstitched wand, and then all of that beading.... oh, there is tons of that to do!
I picked up this really cute Blackbird Designs chart on ebay today - I don't know when it came out, but I just saw it today and it really struck my fancy - Summer House. Along with it I got Wedding Sampler Love and Flame of Friendship for steals... :-)
Well, sports were interesting today - Ryan Newman was racing really well all day today in the Poconos, only to blow a tire with about six laps left in the race, crashed into the wall... and dropped from 6th to 34th in the race... and down to sixth in the points. How disappointing for him. But, Red Sox 8, Cubs 1, avoiding the sweep in Chicago... with Tim Wakefield getting his pitching back online, and home runs from Kevin Youkilis, Johnny Damon, Jay Payton and Manny Ramirez :-) So glad they head back to Fenway at long last again for tomorrow's game... I believe they are home now for a week, good chance to get some rest!
