Wedding Sampler Update!!!

Well, as you can see I still have lots to go on the sampler. I was asked over the weekend to give a progress update and I have to say I am so sorry for being so slow at updating my progress. I was excited to find 1/16th ribbon floss from LNS. The color is oatmeal and looks great against the material and ecru DMC floss. So, progress continues and hopefully by the weeks end I should have more done.

This was a wonderful weekend. On Saturday I attended a luncheon put on by a group of ladies from our local area and our guild NANI who brought in Lori Markovic - La D Da. Lori designed a special project for us and as soon as I get mine completed I will post a picture. Lori is such a great teacher and this was my second opportunity to have a class with her. She brought along many items for sale and of course I added to my La D Da stash.

Another neat thing happened at the event. I got the great chance to meet another fellow blogger who has a blog that keeps me going on a daily basis and in stitches. Please add Spinster Stitcher to your list of blogs to review. I know you will truly enjoy this amazing lady her side kick Stewy. I also got the chance to meet her sister. They are truly a great pair of ladies.

Today I took a quick moment to take a few pictures of our lilies before they are gone. They are so pretty and I just could not stop taking pictures.

Well, before the day is over I am going to head outside and enjoy the last bit of cool weather. What a gorgeous day we had. I am so tired from all of the work we did outside today but feel great knowing that I did get some things accomplished.

Your sampler is coming along nicely. Glad you were able to find the ribbon. I love reading Spinster Stitcher's blog. Glad you had a great time at your meeting. Your flowers are lovely. My lillies haven't bloomed yet, they are almost there.

Oh. My. Gosh. You are such a PEACH to say such lovely things about Chrissy and moi. We drive home and wondered if we made complete boobs of ourselves and if we talked ears off! You can't take us anywhere, and we are most definitely better in small doses! I am so THRILLED to have met you! Thanks for the shout out!
