String Distraction

Hello Friends,
Thanks for all your kind comments on my flock and the cold that I am fighting.
I went back to work yesterday. I had plans to meet with a dear friend for dinner to celebrate her birthday. She has been through so much tho year, breast cancer and a hysterectomy. She is so strong. I am so lucky to have her as a friend.
I struggled through Zumba tonight and now I am parked in my chair playing with this...





I like this type of string project for trips so I bought a couple of these Pine Mountain kits on eBay. I don't have to do finishing I just have to stuff the pillow form in it. I don't have many seasonal items besides Xmas so I thought that these would be cute for some of those other seasons.




I also got this lovely chart. It is going in the ever growing to do stack.
Tomorrow is a long day,both jobs but on Saturday Myra and I are taking a road trip to the cross stitch store in Salisbury. Whoot!
I hope that everyone has had a great week and has a fabulous weekend ahead.

Keep stitching Friends!!!!

God bless Pine Mountain! It's so nice to stitch something & have it already finished when you are done stitching it : )

I love pine mountain I have that same pillow in my stash pile waiting for my fingers to get going on it.
I am jealous a road trip to a stitch shop, yummy, my favorite shop is closed because they are moving to a larger shop and closer to me by about 5 miles.
Have fun on your road trip.

I do envy you being able to visit a needlework shop. I have to travel a distance before I find one that is half decent.
