Birthday card for DH

Well two evenings later and I have completed my DH's birthday card. He loves bears and wolves, so I found this cute realife bear pattern and decided to stitch it for his birthday card.

It's a design from a UK cross stitching magasine "Quick and Easy Cross Stitch".

Oops forgot one

Ooops I forgot the RR square I completed a few days ago for an open theme aida rr which had a bird theme, so I chose this lovely American Goldfinch and butterfly design.

It's the weekend again

Well it's Saturday again sigh ! Where does the week go. As soon as I finish teaching at 3pm today I am going to settle down for a comfortable weekend of stitching and reading.

I finally finished a Wedding Anniversary Sampler on Tuesday for my parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary and succeeded in completing it a whole month in advance ! !

I have so many WIPS and UFO's that I am going to sort through them all this weekend and make a list of the ones that I want to work on to get them finished.

I am currently reading my way through Robert B Parker's Spenser detective books and have read 3 so far this year and am halfway through the 4th.

May have another update later today on the WIPS and UFO's.
