Mid-February

Where is the time going? It is just zooming by.

I hope that everyone had a good Valentine's Day. Ours was pretty quiet. On Monday night the Zumba studio had a couple's Valentine class. The guys got in free. Rich went with me. I think that he had fun but agreed that it was harder than he thought. There were 14 men there. It is really nice that so many men showed up to spend time with their girls. The only problem is that they did a lot of squats and then class Tuesday was a lot more squats, so now I am walking funny.
Tuesday night rich and I went to see The Woman In Black. It was ok. I enjoyed the sets, I spotted a couple of samplers and a sailor's Valentine.
I received this lovely thank you note from Cucki.



She did the quilling. It made me smile.



I also got these 2 Bent Creek kits from eBay. I haven't stitched many patriotic pieces and I like these as travel projects.

I haven't stitched at all this week. Hopefully I will this weekend.
I want to make some minestrone and just stay close to home.

Happy Thursday!

Cute card she made.

Travel charts? Are those called 'travel' because they are small? I've tried stitching while in the car. Blick. Motion sick. :(

Sounds like you had a very nice Valentines Day : ) Cucki sent such a nice thank you. I haven't seen anyone to quilling for ages! Great patriotic charts. Next to Christmas/winter I maybe like patriotic stuff best : ) Blessings, Shirlee

Nice gifts you received, and great ebay stash too. The Zumba with men sounds like it was interesting. Although I don't like squats much. lol! Lunges are even worse. (Can you tell my new exercise routine includes both? lolol!)

Did you take a photo of the men in the Zuma class, I hope they were wearing leotards. LOL.

Wishing you a good weekend with lots of stitching time.

That was a cool idea to bring the guys to a zumba class on Valentine's Day.
I went to a blacklight zumba party Friday night, it was so fun, but for 2 hours is was exhausting.
You received some lovely things in the mail, thats so fun
