I Had Forgotten How Much I Liked to Stitch!

Yes, I am back to stitching again. And it feels wonderful. My mojo has me in there for hours at a time and I've gone so far as to get my next projects floss.

I'm working on Mystic Stitch's Colorful Sky ~

This will be 25"x 16.5" when complete. And I can't wait. As you can see there are patches of black. Well, that's because the last piece I worked on had confetti stitching everywhere. I needed something solid to easy me back into stitching. And wow - I'm in love again.

I went floss shopping last night. These colors make me want to weep. All my favorites. I've wanted this pattern for a few years and DH got it for me at Christmas.

This is Naturistic by Mystic Stitch - (Sorry, blogger turned the pic)

It will be finished out at 17.75" x 14". My stitching room has the same purple on the walls. It will look smashing in there! Woohoo!

The piece I put away - I am so happy to have made that decision. I feel free. Absolutely free. sigh.

Tonight I am having dinner for the kids. Based loosely on Red Lobster's Bar Harbor Bake.

DH is going soon to purchase the lobster, mussels, shrimp, scallops, and pasta. Courtney is helping me as trying to cook all the seafood at once can get hairy.  Even going to broil the lobster instead of boiling it. Not sure what I am having though --- shrimp yes. The rest...not so much.

Today is another sunny day here in Ohio. The weathermen can't decide if we are to have snow this coming week or not. Every one of them has a different outlook and from what I can understand the weather models aren't even matching. I so want at least one GOOD snow this winter. I hate no snow winters. This is Ohio for goodness sake - the land of - 'if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes.'

Off to time -
