Weekend Stitchy Update

I had a fantastic weekend!  How often do I say that, not that often (unless its an awesome stitchy weekend!).

Todd decided not to go fishing this weekend, and we actually spent it together (not something we do too often really he fishes, I stitch!).  We started out with taking in a matinee Saturday morning (I'm too cheap to pay full price for a movie), Iron Man 2 was not bad, but of course as usual the first movie is always the best.  We then took in a late lunch and enjoyed sitting on the patio of one of our favourite restaurant with fajitas.  Then that night we were back out, for my friend Jason's surprise Stag and Doe.  All and all a great day!

Today was a quiet day for us, I got to spend today stitching (which I didn't get a single stitch in yesterday), working away on Jason's wedding sampler.  I have now passed the 1/2 way mark on this.  Boy its stitching up so nicely and quickly!!!!  If all goes well, maybe I'll be dancing by the end of the weekend???

Mmmmmm...fajitas on the porch! Sounds awesome. We did that two weekends ago over in Tampa. I just LOVE eating outdoors.

The little xs and os on the sampler are adorable. Congrats on getting so much finished.

I love your stitching. And so glad you and Todd had a great time this weekend.
My grandkids and daughter and SIL were here all weekend so I haven't gotten in much stitching. But they are leaving in about an hour and stitching I will be!

Sounds like you had a terrific weekend! I don't blame you for going to the matinee, ticket prices are outrageous! Your wip is looking good too :)

Alice said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I hardly ever go to the movies anymore. By the time you buy tickets and maybe a popcorn, you could just buy the DVD when it comes out. Nice stitching, as always.

Sally said...

What a lovely weekend. I can't remember the last weekend my DH and I spent together, alone. Probably the weekend before daughter number one was born, nearly four years ago, lol!
