Monday Update

Thursday I got started on my new start Ocean in a Bottle. Here is what it will look like when finished...
Friday I demanded a lazy day and got a lot of stitching done. Saturday we had some fun planned. Fred (hubby), Mom, Jeremiah (son) and I went to a traveling flea market called Shipshewana on the Road here in our town. We had a great time and found a lot of stuff we couldn't live without. We all got some new t-shirts to feed our t-shirt addictions. The boys got some beef jerky to snack on. I got two new homemade candles that smell fantastic. We stopped at JoAnns and I got the stuff I needed to finish off my Easter cube projects this week. We also had a delicious meal at a new to us Hibachi restaurant that we will definitely have to go back to. It was a great day. I got a few hours Saturday night on the Ocean in the Bottle too.

Sunday we had just a few chores outside to take care of now that it is Spring but other than that we enjoyed a lazy day. We caught up on a bunch of TV shows and I got a lot of stitching time. So it was a very nice weekend indeed.

Plus like I said I got a lot of time on my WIP...
This is 4 days of progress. I'm stitching it on 32ct Lambswool Jobelan. I'm in love with it!! I put a little bit of the backstitching on yesterday just so I could see how it would look on that first shell and the top of the bottle. I can't wait to pick it up when I have time. It's so much fun to be in love with a piece isn't it? We have a busy week ahead. I can't believe Easter is already this Sunday. Doesn't feel like it should be that's for sure. I hope everyone has a great week.

Absolutely fabulous! I hope this project remains your focus piece until it's completed or at least until you've stitched loads more. Surely its screams must be drowning out all of those from the other WIPs in your basket?! :)

What a beautiful design! I've been eyeing Maria's charts for some time. I love your choice and it's stitching up every bit as beautiful as the models. Glad to hear you had such a lovely weekend.
