It is almost here

...the weekend. For some reason I am REALLY feeling it - and want this week over with!! Not that it has been that hard or anything just a long and arduous week all around.

We got home form work yesterday and found a note from the building manager that our balcony will have to be cleared off so that that can rip it off and replace it with a new one. If you remember - ours is one of the few balconies that is full of plants - including two big window boxes full of geraniums and a giant Norfolk Pine tree. Rico moved everything off and into the house and out in the hall. Now let us just see how long we get to live like this since our Building manager is notorious for hiring the slowest worker types on the planet!!!! Another thing is why would you start an outside project like this when it is supposed to be a downpour over the next few days????? Can you tell I ain't so happy!!!!

Last night I worked exchange stitching. Thank you all for the input about WIP's - I did have to think about what would constitute a UFO - I would guess it would be something that goes at least a year without being touched - then it falls into the UFO category!!

The lovely Carol nominated me for the Special Friends Award and "Love" Pendant. The description for this award reads "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind of writers. When you pass this award along please include these guidelines. I am to choose eight friends to share this with".

Carol and I have become friends though our love of stitching and blogging.
Thank you so much Carol!

It is so hard to narrow down the nominations as there are many who inspire and give of themselves so selflessly - but I can only list 8 people whose blogs and stitching inspire me and have thus become friends are:

1) - Carol S - Garden of Stitches
2) - Jennifer - Ohio is My Dwelling Place
3) - Donna - Daisy Girl Stitching
4) - Valerie - Fog City Dweller
5) - Sherry - Inhale Life
6) - Anna - Stitch Bitch
7) - Margie - Three Cool Pugs and Me

Following Carol's lead I would like to renominate her for the 8th place!!!

Lat night there were a couple of flicks - starting off the evening with "Holiday Affair" - 1949 - Staring Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh. A Christmas movie I had never even heard of much less seen - such a wonderful flick I would highly recommend a look. Basically a love triangle, but clever and funny!!! This was followed by "It Should Happen to You" - 1954 - starring Judy Holiday, Peter Lawford and in his first big role Jack Lemon. A great film and a wonderful vehicle for Judy and her super comic talents!!!

One more day to sign up for the Give-away.... Thanks for stopping by!!!

Take care -

Me? Charming and friendly and not about self-aggrandizement? I must be doing something wrong! LOL.

Thanks, Edgar.

Aww, thanks Edgar! You're the best! sorry to hear you had to move all your must look like a greenhouse in your apartment now!

I just watched Adam's Rib over the weekend with Judy Holiday! I love her...but not as much as the Hepburn ladies and Bette of course. :)

Sherry said...

Awwww, thank you so much for the wonderful award! I can't wait to post it tomorrow and show it off!!

I am new to blogging but not to stitching. I have been following your blog along with some other quaker stitchers and others. I am trying to find the Beatrix Potter Sampler on line with no luck. I wrote to the person in charge of the quakerinspired blog and have not heard back. I too wonder how to differentiate between a WIP and UFO. Your WIPs put mine to shame!!! Oh but what an inspiration! I am also jealous in the plant dept. I am trying to keep one plant one tree and some bamboo alive! LOL

Why thanks Edgar! It's a real pleasure to be counted as one of your friends and in such nice company also! :-)
