PhotoHunt, Finishing & A HD ... Oh My!

Its Saturday, its PhotoHunt Day!  Today's theme is "Ripped"


This summer my friend Tracey and I got to try water skiing for the first time.  Oh what an adventure that was!  Poor Tracey, she went into the water after the rope was ripped out of her hands!


I've got two stitching items to share with you tonight!  This morning I took a little time and did the finishing on yet another ornament.  This lovely heart I stitched up last year, its a freebie from San Man, sorry I don't have a link or any other info for you.

I also had a Happy Dance tonight!  I started this just a day or two ago, I'm just loving Sharon's (aka Daffycat) reindeer designs.  They stitch up so nicely and look so cute!

Stitched on: 32ct Queen Ann's Lace Joblean
Stitched with: DMC cotton floss

Today Todd and I went out and we bought a new treadmill!  Its a Nordictrack, and so much nicer than my old one which was pretty basic.  We won't get it for a week, as the store doesn't keep them in stock, luckily we'll be able to pick it up closer to home instead of going back into the city.  We were hoping to be able to bring one home today, both Todd and I agree we can't let our running slack off but I can wait another week.  In the meantime I'll go to Taekwon-Do a little more often and hopefully not running won't affect the scale this week.

You had a great day for your parade. I was glad it was so nice since I spent the day commuting to Drummondville.
