A Long Weekend

My long weekend vacation was wonderful.  Friday was some work (not much), stitching and DL’s school carnival.  All throughout the weekend D & I spent our lazy time watching wonderful war movies on TCM.  No Dirty Dozen or Bridge of the River Kwai but we did get to watch Kelly’s Heros (love the cast),  Battleground (another great Van Johnson film), Sergeant York (my first watching of this one – great movie)

Saturday was spent getting my nails done, going to A&T (Happy B-day Jeannine!) where I picked up

R&R’s Winifred Gardener – A Stitcher’s Home (kitted that up – all cottons, left the silk out),

Sampler & Antique Needlework – Summer Ed.

Jeannine was nice enough to place Green Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair Creations in my bag and its so cute I had to bring it home with me.

Another goodie I was able to snatch up at Borders (before they all went away) is Joan Elloitt’s Collection

A new letter is out for the Dark Alphabet – F for Furies using the Forbidden Stitch.
