Another day, another stitch.The Taste of Home cooking show was fabulous. We had so much fun, even the site is fun. Here's a pic of the goody bag with lots of freebies, coupons and three different magazines they publish.



They were tossing tee shirts out to us and I missed two, but I did catch a apron, woohoo!! that will come in handy. There's my kitty, she has to be on top of everything I do. If they ever come to your town, I highly recommend it, if you like to cook & bake. It was so funny, they had door prizes that they called on and off all nite. One was a bikini waxing and eyebrow shaping, Steve won that one, I hope he has a female companion hehe. Anyway, heres a update on my June Berries (BBD).I am going to get Palomino done this weekend, dh is fishing all weekend at the missippippi River all weekend, I hope he has fun. The girls and I are going to a Pampered Chef party Sat. afternoon then to a movie, if I have any money left, lol. At 8am I am volunteering to pick up trash along our country road. Its call "Keep It Beautiful" The county supplies gloves, bags, a vest and a poker. we just leave the bag of garbage on the side of the road and the county picks it up. Oh yeah! I am so excited to start Ink Circles, Cirque des Cercles I ordered the chart yesterday on the website and ordered the fabric from Needle In A Haystack - Purveyor of fine needlework supplies I placed a fabric order in the 14th and received it today, fast huh? So I ordered more fabric today, I ordered the Lakeside Sugared Ginger to do the Cirque Des Cercles and then I will go to my LNS and find a color to do in the silks. I have never worked with silk before. I wonder how many skeins I will need for that project? hmmm. I need to go start some dinner, I suppose. Ta ta
