I finished LHN's Blessed are the Merciful late last night. This one is my favorite of the Saltbox Scripture series. I love the sailboat and the blue house. Crescent Colors' Tartan Blue is one of my all-time favorite colors of thread to stitch with. I think I will probably finish these into little pinkeeps to be displayed seasonally. I have the spring and summer one both stitched. I still have the fall and winter ones to do.
I think I mentioned in my last post that I had pulled out a bunch of WIPs that I haven't worked on in awhile. I decided to pick this Prairie Schooler design up and try to finish it up this week. I have a bad habit of starting projects and losing interest about halfway into them. I guess the upside is that I do usually go back to them at some point. This is Summer Breeze.
I think we are taking a road trip to Hobby Lobby this evening. I need more yarn for my blanket that I am making, and HL has it on sale this week. The closest HL to us is about 45 minutes away, so we will make a night of it with dinner out and a few more stops in the area, I am sure. One of the many things I love about summer...picking up and taking off on a weeknight to do whatever without having to worry about bed times. :)
I have been watching some really good movies lately. Last week, I watched New in Town with Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr. It was a cute movie, with several really funny parts. I also watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. FABULOUS! I absolutely loved this movie. I thought Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett were just wonderful in their respective roles. I am probably the last person on earth to have seen it at this point. I love movies that stay with you and make you think after they end (I like books like this too). This will be a movie that I will eventually add to my collection. And I want to read the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald that inspired the movie. I am getting ready to watch Marley and Me, which I know is very sad at the end. I want to see it, but I don't. Our pastor related part of this movie to Sunday's sermon yesterday. He said he even cried at the end. Oh boy... I plan to spend the afternoon watching it and working on Summer Breeze.
I forgot to mention in my last post that Melissa at Words and Blooms is having a giveaway. Check it out if you haven't already. And check out her wonderful blog. I love reading her blog, seeing her stitching and her lovely garden. :)
Have a good rest of the day!
