Despite appearances

to the contrary, I haven't forgotten that this is supposed to be a cross stitch blog (or mostly cross stitch, anyway). 

I've been stitching on Peppermint Twist now and again.  I need a magnifier, so I spend as much time getting myself situated as I do stitching.  It's coming, though.

We finally have a little sun, so I've been getting the landscaping cleaned up and some flowers planted.  Everything looks so lush and green after such a wet spring. 

Soon, soon, soon, I should have a post about some finishing I sent out.  Each day I think the package will arrive and I'll have a wonderful picture laden post but the mailman continues to disappoint.  The virtues of patience.

I went to see Something Borrowed over the weekend.  Loved it.  I've written before about how much I like Emily Giffin's books and the movie didn't disappoint..... even knowing how it came out in the end.  All her books have a little bit of a surprise ending. 

The Scholar embarks on her return journey tonight.  Phew. 


  1. Let us know the Scholar's progress! And I can't wait to see your usual!

  2. Oh my gosh, what gorgeous finishes! Karen did a great job showcasing your beautiful stitching. Congrats!
