Sorry for the lousy pic, folks. I can cross "become a famous photographer" off my bucket list, I guess. "Reading" by LHN is finished and in the pile to be journaled. I like the way it came out and promise not to try any finishing on this one without proper supervision. The linen for this one was 28ct. natural pearl and I just can't say enough about it -- very very lovely to stitch with. Like butta'.
I am ready for a weekend! Chrissy and I did the Target pharmacy thing and then went to the grocery. I'm going to make meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner tomorrow and then we're making ribolitta on Sunday. Ribolitta is an Italian vegetable bean soup. I watched my BFF Ina Garten The Barefoot Contessa Her Very Self make it on the TeeVee this week, and it sounds like just the thing for a lovely Sunday supper.
I managed to get the kitchen scrubbed, the Happy Chair cleaned, and the hardwood wiped down with vinegar -- all in the space of about 10 minutes. I think I broke something (like a kidney), so I'm headed to bed with Tylenol and a heating pad. It's hell getting old.
