I hope everyone is having a good weekend!!...This is what I'm doing!!...I got them all painted and stained yesterday and last night..Today to get them finished, I hope... I worked on them 9 hours yesterday and last night between all the steps I take...UGH!..My back hurts today!..Who would think that painting boxes would be so hard on the body?!?...So what are you all doing this weekend???...As soon as I get them finished, on to working on x-stitch orders and hopefully some good movies this evening...That is my plan anyway!!~~hugs, Jen

Hi everyone!...It is like a Spring day here today!

Rondell...Tim took Luke with him for a while last night out to the church for the UPWARD basketball games...So that gave me 3 1/2 hours to work..He doesn't usually do that, so it did give give him daddy/son time...

Hi Pam!...What'cha stitching on today?...I have so many Spring patterns I want to do..Some I've already had several years and still haven't done them...

Thanks Lori!...I'm trying to decide on software...Hopefully next week I will have some and can get some more done...Thanks for your comlpliments!!

Hi Linda!..Wow!..Came home with no goodies!...I can't wait to get my copy of the Country Sampler home tours...I LOVE your house!

Hi Diva!...Some days it has to do with letting everything else go in the house and doing a big project...Loves of hugs and kisses to Luke and lots of cartoons to keep him occupied!

I need to do up some boxes for me. I thought I would make a couple up, to put up all my loose threads, that I wound up. That way, I have them on hand and looks nice too.

Good evening Jen!
I havene't checked in on you for a couple days and look what you did! Wow girlie...that looks like the pile I have upstairs but mine aren't touched yet - you are waaaaay ahead of me.
Hope by now you are relaxing with a movie and a soda or whatever.
Hugs, Karen

Oh my Southern Girl!!! You don't get finished with one project before you have another one going. What inspiration you are!!! I did get finished with your special design and love it. I have to decide how I am going to finish it.
Hubby and I went to N.C. today. picked up a few things from Jenny's and then went and found some great prim fabric to cover my "stitchin chair". Saw some beautiful blue fabric by Waverly that reminded me of you. It had your name all over it!!!LOL
Have a good week-end!
Hugs, Sherrie
