May ort report & Mid-hermit happy dance!

Ok so I normally don't post mid hermit, but becuase today is New Moon, I thought I would get my ort report in...and I clipped this beautiful tulip out of my flowerbed this morning and had to share it...knowing that I had to take a pic of my glass I thought that it would be perfect.  Poor thing looked awkward in the bed with it's overgrown curve, but standing alone....my goodness...isn't it glorious?  I love bulb flowers...tulips, iris, lily of the valley (which I can never grow and am dying to!), any lily....love love love.

Friday night's hermitting resulted in a finish for me!  Sergei in all his red glory!  He's so handsome!  I'm going to kit up Maxim & Zoya next.  I love how he turned out on the Violet Mist fabric.

A little Sunday morning hello my Miss Lulu.  Could you not just squish her?

Ok....so now I have to ask...How many people use Pinterest?  I see it all over the place...I don't even know what it is...but I'm thinking that I'm missing something by not signing up!

A LOVELY ORT report. The Tulip just made it, Barbi!

Sergei looks fantastic! I have Maxim & Zoya from Jessie for Mother's Day and am hoping to start it soon.

I don't use Pinterest. I figure between Blogger and Facebook the LAST thing I need is yet another online "thing" to deal with! And I'm seriously considering canning Facebook lol!

Sergei just might have to become one of my next purchases, He is so handsome! You've done a lovely job!

Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board. Instead of cutting pages out of magazines to save an idea for later, you "pin" things to different boards you create. Others can see you boards and repin your things. You have to have a FB account but once enrolled, you do not need to log in through FB. Theres a waiting period (i think) or someone 'invites' you to join. There are lots of clever things people do, tutorials, recipes, etc.

Oh my gosh... Miss Lulu is BEAUTIFUL!!! I want to squish her too!

I used Pinterest. Love it. It's interesting to see architecture from all over the world and I really love the recipes I've found on there.

We are having a bean salad from there tonight. I've found food and fitness blogs that I would not have normally found. Can you tell I LOVE Pinterest?

Our tulips have been gone for over a month now....they were way too early this year! Nice progress on your stitching. I use Pinterest and I like it. I've gotten many recipes I've tried and liked from there. Plus I have a Pinterest app on my phone and if I have "pinned" it I can get to the recipe easily while at the store to get what I need and then pull the recipe up on my phone to make it. If I don't want to make it again, I don't print it out! It's like bookmarks stored on your internet browser, but you can access it from ANY computer since it's a website. But I don't go searching for things to put on there. I just usually look at the things already pinned and repin them. Saves me the time of searching blogs. I also used it to find organizing ideas for my craft room. It's really a great resource.

Congrats on your finish. Sergei looks wonderful. And so does Miss Lulu.

I have been on Pinterest for a while and just love it. It's a great way to bookmark things that you can look back at. It's also an enabler and a time sucker some times. I see so many things that I want, and could spend hours and hours. But I'm starting to calm down now, but I love all the ideas, tutorials, etc. that are there.

Congratulations on your Sergei finish!
Have a great week!

Lovely Tulip. I'm waiting for some irises we planted to push through. Love Sergi and the dog is adorable too.

Haven't used Pinterest much but I see a lot who do.
