WooHoo!!!

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. I am so happy to report that I found the perfect color for my CDC, dmc 4130 Chilean sunset, its so beautiful with the Sugared Ginger fabby. I thought there was no perfect color for it. I found it at a craft store in Wi. Here is a pic of my DH and I onthe 2007 Harley Ultra Supreme that we rented over the weekend. yes! that's my front yard with all the big Oak trees, so when fall comes that's the only place I will be... raking.
We went Saturday up to East Troy, Wi. to drop off a part to one of his customers. I have been wanting to hit a stitchery shop in Wi. I promise I not was looking for more stash. But.... The shop was going out of business and everything was 60% off, yeah everything. When I first went in, I thought it was only certain charts, but then this lady come in asking about the fabby. Well, just say I had to start to shop it all over again. Here is the pic of some of it. I bought fabric, sampler threads and WDW, Bent Creek, Cricket Collection,Calico Crossroads Shepards Bush and a kit, Flip-it's, Lizzie Kate, Mill Hill, loads of buttons. How could anyone pass up that sale????
We also rode Monday over to beautiful Savanna Il. this side of the Mississippi River and went to a bar museum where there was lots of antique and vintage motorcycles. It is usually full of Harleys, but was dead on Mon. I guess everyone was getting over a hang-over. Sunday nite was pretty wild we heard. They had a wet t-shirt contest with no t-shirts involved. My DH was dissappointed he missed that, lol. We really dont do the bar scene anyway. There just isnt enough time for that.
I have been saving the best for last. I started on Cirque Des Cercles yesterday and worked on it alot today. I am going to post a pic with my scanner to get the true colors after I get more done. I think I got a good start on it. I am so excited about it. I just love the colors. I do have to buy a few more skeins somewhere, I just hope they will match up. I will be posting on the Cirque des Cercles blog that Jamie started. Big Thanks to Jamie. If you have started or want to please join us.
Time to get ready for my DD's first baseball game of the season. It looks like rain. I hope it holds off. Oh yeah! coming in my next post. What has conquered my migraines? I have found the miracle and I cant wait to share. I feel sewww good about myself, not having a headache for a week now. Boy!!! does it make a difference in my lifestyle. Until next time.... Happy Stitching!!! Thank you all for your past comments. They really do make my day :)
