Up a tree with a little more splash.

Oh my!  I do amuse myself sometimes!  ROFL!

Had a great week last week.  Hubby and I celebrated our 8th anniversary on Wednesday, well we actuallly ended up going out with friends who also had their anniversary last week. So we went for dinner, and then to the casino for a bit.  Hubby won $300 and I won just under $600!  WOOO HOOO!!!!!  The couple we were with weren't so lucky, but they still enjoyed themselves, so it was good!  But with our winnings, we have decided that we are going away for the weekend, hopefully find some sun somewhere and drive in that direction.  I can hardly wait :)

So here are my stitching updates.  I started stitching the tree on Lizzie.  I am dying to start working on her, but the fabric was just pulling me towards the tree this time around.  So I'll do that and leave Lizzie for last.  But she's going to look great!  Kati (my SAL partner) has started stitching her and is making GREAT progress on her, and is looking fantastic!  So I am looking forward to stitching mine soon.

I put a few more stitches into the splash of Sockeye.  I'm going to do some totally focused stitching on it this week, see how close I can get to a finish. I have a feeling that I'm close and only a couple of weeks left to go on this one before a happy dance I think :)

SAL update on Lizzie!

I didn't post last week, cause I didn't have anything to share.  We went camping, which was FANTASTIC, last weekend, so I had intentions of stitching and I even packed it up and brought it with me, but it didn't leave the bag.  So alas, there was no update on Sockeye nor Lizzie last week.  Then this week, I didn't get any stitching done accept for Liz yesterday so here she is.  It's coming along, I love working on it.  And on Sunday's it's hard to put her away...but I do...and I have Sockeye in the qsnaps again, and will be stitching during the hockey game.

Had a good day yesterday.  Hubby has actually been away since Thursday and got back home today YEAH!  I miss him when he's gone.  But it gave Mom and I a chance to sit around and we pulled a pajama day yesterday with girl movies and junk food.  Started with Dear John, then Letters to Juliet, then When In Rome, then Eat Pray Love.  My kind of Sunday!

I'm feeling like I need to start something new!  I'm trying to hold off and stay focused to finish Sockeye, but I feel like I need an ornie start and finish soon.  So we'll see how the week goes and maybe Friday I'll find an ornament to stitch up :)

A little Sockeye with your TUSAL?

I got no stitching done on Sunday for my SAL with Kati on Elizabeth.  We had a family day, so with the baby, and the gardening we managed to do, and bbq, that by the time evening came around it was good just to put our feet up.

But I did pull sockeye off the qsnaps to take a pic.  I figured I had to show something. I love how it's turning out.  It's hard to appreciate the work you are doing on the splash when it's in the qsnaps, cause all you see are blobs of white and grey, but I took a look at it today and I am pleased.

So that's what you see in this month's tusal layer.  Lot's of white and shades of light grey.  And my sexy bunny was in my Easter flowers this year.  CUTE! 

We're off camping tomorrow for the weekend!  I hope the rain holds off!  I don't like soggy camping. :(
