Yayy!! I really enjoyed watching the race this time! Congrats to Jimmy Johnson for winning, loved how he moved Denny Hamlin and took over the lead, it was very exciting towards the end. Jimmy got cheers from me that are usually reserved for Dale jr, lol. And it was great seeing Jeff Gordon lead so many laps, he had a great day too. And of course Dale jr did pretty great as well, 9th place finish and moved up to 16th in points! Now on to Texas, loove Texas! ;0)

It's supposed to be spring now, right?

It's snowing here today. After raining all day yesterday, it is a mess! I'm thankful however, that the weatherman was wrong (at least here in central OK) This junk was supposed to start last night and it only just now started at about 1:00 this afternoon. I don't think any of it will actually stick around, it's been too warm lately and the ground isn't frozen anymore. We did need the rain though, it's been a very dry for a while now. I'm really thankful that I haven't done any gardening except for some elephant ears that I planted last week, they should be fine. Got watered in real good huh!! lol

Umm, will the real Bristol please stand up? Where was all the beating and banging, temper tantrums? I will not even grace you with my opinion yet again of Kyle Bush-insert eyeroll here. And Dale jr, 14th place is ok, but seriously seemed like you were stuck in quicksand, lol. Never really moved forward at all and thank God for the lucky dog! Anyhoo, moved up to 19th in points so that's good. Moving forward is a good thing. Even if the racing is BORING. smiles and hugs~

haed finish/wip

Here is an update on my Dark Cherry for haed's bb freebie sal. I got quite a bit done this time around, hopefully I can get at least one full page done before the 3rd page comes out!

and here is haed's pirate dragon freebie, I finished this cute fellow up a few nights ago. He's stitched on 18 count aida. Not sure what I'm going to do with him, either frame him or make a pillow~

Rose Bunny

Here is an pattern called Rose Bunny. I'm stitching this one for the munchkin for Easter. Originally I thought I'd make a pillow out of it but now I'm thinking of making a tote bag instead. I think it would be really cute with some Easter fabric, she could use it to hunt for eggs with in the Easter hunt, or stuff it with candy etc. I'm stitching it on a light mint green 18 count aida fabric, it's really shiny and kind of stiff. I think it's damask? Whatever that is-some fabric expert I am huh!
Typical Oklahoma weather, it was sleeting on Saturday morning, by the afternoon it was in the upper 60's and sunny, got alot of yard work done~I want to start my garden so bad I can't stand it but am waiting for that frost date to pass. April something or other, lol

Another fairly good finish for Dale jr-11th not so bad considering the race was a joke. I was once again bored. Bored, bored bored. At this rate I would not consider paying $$ to go see a race at one of the tracks. Dale jr is pretty much the only reason I stick with it on Sundays~

On a different subject, it's springtime here in the Sooner state. All my daffodils are blooming along with the bridal wreath bushes, the firebushes, and the plum & peach trees as well. They are kind of sparse though compared to before the icestorm. And it's been so dry as well. I've reclaimed another part of my yard, I'm hard at it getting branches etc. picked up and piled up. Not much else to do with it at the moment, certainly can't burn it lol. So I'll make compost out of it. That's a good thing, right?!

I've been stitching a little bit. I've slowed down somewhat as I need to get my eyes checked. It's getting hard to focus on the small print and I've been getting headaches. Doesn't help that I've had a cold/allergies all in one for the last week or so. Welcome springtime! lol

my first stitched towel

This is a Stoney Creek pattern I got at called Folksy Chicken towel. I messed up and didn't get it centered properly so this is just a part of the whole design. It didn't print right somehow and ended up being off-center by about 5 rows on the actual design and I didn't notice until I had most of the chicken stitched. No way was I ripping it out and starting over so I just altered it to make it work~
