my A B C's!
You all know about the February 1st goal that I had...
wanted to finish "Mary's Best Handework Samplar" before then.
We all know what day it is today...
The question is, is it going to be finished today?
Guess what I have left? Remember, I said I wasn't going to leave the 16oo-some green pasture stitches until last.
first it was that cute little urn filled with flowers, then it was the old skeleton key, then it was the alphabet that was tempting me...
I couldn't resist
leaving the green pasture for another day.
Here we are today...
and the only thing left to stitch is the green pasture....aauuggghhhh!! How could I let this happen??????

Chicken noodle soup is cooking in the crock pot
the house smells yummy.
If my peripheral vision is serving me correctly, I do believe that was a laundry basket I just saw in my DH hands as he walked by.
Now, if I could just get the cat to file my quarterly witholdings & figure the W-2's for me that would even be better!
After a meal of home-made soup & egg~salad on pumpernickel marble rye
it is going to be
stitching lots of green stitches,
in front of the Grammy's.
How is that for an evening of entertainment & enjoyment?
With thy Needle & Thread,
