A Lazy Butt Weekend

It was one great big lazy weekend. I did absolutely nothing I didn't want to do! Although the weather was beautiful - I didn't take advantage of any outside anything. I took a few naps, snuggled with the puppies in my chair, and ate crap for every meal - how is that for a great big lazy butt weekend!!!

I did do some stitching on the Mystery Sampler - this is a great stitchity piece and I am really enjoying it - Here is a snap of where I am - almost past the 1/2 way point....

It is such a joy to stitch as are all the BBD things I have worked - this will be the very first piece I am keeping for myself. I have stitched quite a few other things but have always given them away. I did have to change up the colour on the house as the called for floss melted into the fabric way too much - so I slapped in a whiter floss and am really happy with the results.

Don't forget the drawing tomorrow - for La-D-Da's - "Let Live" chart - I will announce the winner in the posting in the morning.

Well it is another busy day here - so I will let you go with a shorter post than normal - Was that a sigh of relief from blog-land??? :)

Hope you all had a wonderful nap filled weekend like I did!! Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Take care,
edgar

This is looking SO good! I think your quaker sampler taste is rubbing off on me--lately I'm thinking how good they are, as before I was just neutral. Also, the desire to stitch "Peaceful Ways" has been growing since you posted about it. I even checked my LNS to see if they had the chart--but alas, they did NOT. (for like the 3rd time in a row.) I ALSO want to try a BBD piece "Beneath the Sunlit Sky" that I saw out and about in Blogland! So many things!

Edgar I think your weekend sounds perfect! Sometimes we have to do just nothing and eating junk and snuggling pets is always fun!

Your BBD Mystery Sampler is gorgeous, and I bet you already have a special place picked out to hang it.
