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 :)

Congrats on your 8th anniversary. And how fantastic that you finished that special day with winning quite some money. Hope you'll enjoy the weekend away.
Lizzie looks fantastic so does your sockeye. Not long to go on Sockeye...he looks now already spectacular.

Both of your WIPs are looking great--that Sockeye is really going to be a stunner with the "splash" completed!
