Post Valentine's day

Hello Everybody!

How was everyone's Valentine's day?  This year hubby whisked me away for a weekend of romance and friends, and theater and great food.  Our friend's daughter was stage manager of a performance at the University of Lethbridge and we were invited to go with them.  Taking advantage of it, we decided to make a weekend of it.  Left on Friday after we closed the shop a little earlier and went away for the whole weekend.  It was heaven!  Being pampered and fed and spoiled!  I love my hubby!

That being said I didn't get any stitching done on my Sunday SAL....so I kind of cheated, as this was a long weekend...so I worked on our SAL on Monday instead.  Got quite a bit done, and I'm still loving it!

I started a small piece in the middle of last week for Valentine's day as well, but I didn't get that one finished.  So hopefully I'll get a chance to do that...don't think that I'm going to have much time to stitch this week, as I have lots of work to do, plus out with the girls tonight to see 50 shades of grey.  (I haven't read the books, so I have no preconceived expectations.) And then dinner afterwards.   Tomorrow we have a friend coming over while her daughter is at hockey practice.  And then on Thursday, we are having a family dinner because it's the only time one of my nieces can make it before she heads back to school.  Friday.....I may have a chance to hold needle in hand, but we all know how well laid plans normally pan out.  So I'm thinking sometime this weekend.  I signed up for hermit stitching weekend this weekend (I can't believe that it's already the third weekend of the month) so I'm hopeful!

And how was everyone else's week?

I really like your SAL... pretty colors.

Sounds like a fabulous Valentine's Day weekend for you. I bought tickets to a play for the BF for Vday. We'll be doing dinner and theatre this weekend. What did you see?

I've not read the 50 Shades books or seen the movie, but I heard the movie follows the books pretty close.

Aw... you have one sweet husband, Barbi! Mine would never even think to do anything like that :)

Oh, the SAL is looking more and more fabulous! I can see why you're enjoying it so much...

P.S. Down to the final three--what do you think?

It seems that you have spent the perfect Valentine's weekend. We don't celebrate Valentine's Day but had a lovely weekend as well with a lot of sunshine, good food and stitching :)

Great progress on your SAL piece - and who cares if the progress was made on a Sunday or a Monday? Lol.
