Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone is having a great day. Whether family members, a spouse, children, friends, or a mixture of all of the above, there are people in the world that love you no matter what. Today is a day to remember....think about....embrace, if you can....those that love you and those that you love.

I owe some update pictures, but I don't have any handy at the moment, so no pictures today. I have made progress on the UFO I started working on a couple of weeks ago. And this past weekend, I started working on Red Cottage by Plum Street Samplers.

I went on a 3 day weekend with some local stitching buddies this past weekend to Williamsburg, VA. When we arrived on Friday, we did a little shopping first. First stop was a cross stitch shop, The Stitching Well at Haus Tirol. I was good and only bought a couple of things. A few doors down, I visited The Knitting Sisters. I bought a kit for a very cute scarf that is knitted with 5 yarns, all shades of red and each very different in texture. The scarf is knitted lengthwise, which makes the changes in yarn texture really stand out.

After shopping, we had dinner at The Blue Talon Bistro. The food was outstanding. I had lamb shank which was delicious. It fell off the bone and was so tender you could eat it with a spoon. Yummm!

Saturday was a day of relaxing and stitching. A few of the ladies drove to Virginia Beach to shop at another cross stitch store, Dying 2 Stitch. I opted to stay at the condo and stitch. It was a great weekend. One we hope to repeat sometime later this year.

That's all for now. I'll post pictures in next day or so.

Hugs and Happy Stitching, Chris
