Moving on

Thanks everyone for your kind words about Lex. She was a big personality. I am trying to move on.

So I guess a weekend recap is in order. Rich and I managed to get a hike in. It was a beautiful day here, in the mid 50's. We ran up to Greensboro to make our monthly trip to Costco(remind me not to go there on the weekends in the afternoon!). After that we went up to Guilford Courthouse and did some hiking on the Nathaniel Greene trail. This trail is pretty soft and takes you along the side of Lake Brandt. After that we stopped at the local PetSmart to get information on the cat adoption program. I am not ready yet but soon I am sure that we will adopt a couple more cats. They had some very sweet cats available.Then it was off to the movies. Rich and I went to see The Way Back. It was a little long but an amazing story. Next week I am looking forward to seeing The Unknown.

Today I went for a walk before going into work 10 to 6. It was one of those days where you couldn't make much headway. UGH. I got home to a fabulous pesto and tomato pizza that Rich made and then a some TV and stitching.
Not much progress this past week but I am continuing to work on this.

I have not received my new SANQ yest but I am anxious to see the samplers that everyone is talking about. A giraffe? I may get distracted!

I did get my sweet exhibit guide for the exhibit at The Polk House Museum in TN. I was hoping to make it out to the symposium but I just won't be able to.

I have a busy week ahead, both jobs Monday, dinner with friends on Wednesday, EGA on Thursday, and lunch and a movie with a friend on Saturday. So... lots of talking about stitching coming up...but not much stitching :)

I am starting to go through some of my stash. Stay tuned.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and Yours!

The moving on is really hard. So difficult to believe we won't see them again. I'm so glad that you'll be adopting--it's the best cure for a broken heart. Your weekend seems like it was healing and fun (and healthy!)

Your bristol sampler is moving right along. And did you say giraffe? I'm gonna have to pester mom about getting a peek at her copy. I love giraffes.

Re moving on: it'll be tough, no doubt, but when it does happen, one (or more) cats are going to have a great new home with lots of love to look forward to.

Hi Chris! How is it I haven't seen your blog before now. I am getting ready to stitch Isabella Johnstone and googled it and found you! You've done some absolutely wonderful samplers and I really enjoyed looking back thru your blog (those paper, stitched ornaments are adorable) at all your finishes and sampler wall displays. Your Bristol Sampler is stunning - I love red, too!
I am so sorry about the loss of your cat. I've lost a few pets in my lifetime and it's never easy.
Happy Valentines Day!

Keep up the great work on this red and white beauty--it is going to be amazing :)

So did you get your copy of SANQ yet? The giraffe is something. I have to say it's very tempting, even to me. However, I can understand not wanting to be tempted away from your current piece. I love it and all that red is beautiful!
