Stitching, sewing, crocheting.....

As another weekend is coming to an end, I'm wondering where it went, and why I didn't get more done.  It was cold and dreary out, and we had no plans to go anywhere, so we just stayed in, all warm and cozy both days.  We didn't even go out for dinner on Saturday night, which is usually the only night we eat out.  A cold dreary day calls for soup, so we made a big pot of clam chowder.  Yummy!

I worked on quite a few projects over the weekend.  I stitched:

and I crocheted:

And I made a mug rug for Madame Samm's contest.  Here's a sneak peak:

I also brought some work home, and spent some time on that this morning.  Now I'm off to do a little more stitching before bedtime.  I hope everyone has a good week.

Counting my blessings.......Sunny

  4. I know -- I think week ends go faster than week days even!!!!
    I have found over a dozen bom's for 2011 so far--I will only let meself do 3 this year--only I can't decide on which 3???? and I even feel "bad" at starting any new ones--I have too many Older ones waiting--so may just collect some of the monthly patterns this year and work hard on finishing up last years and the years before that and......
    I do believe the one is Jenny's that you are doing??? everything looks so pretty!!
    Hugs,di and that miss gracie
