After I finished Shepherd's Bush Thoughtful Heart I futzed around and decided to complete the next lesson on my CyberWorkshop with Orna Willis. Here's my latest progress on Cirque de Fleur:
I was sitting in the Happy Chair thinking about what to stitch next when I started thinking about how much I really enjoyed the Shepherd's Bush piece. Just as I was saying "Gee, isn't it too bad that I don't have a Shepherd's Bush kit with an American theme..." it hit me! Aunt Chrissy and I took a class last year with the SB girls....and the theme...wait for it...was Americana! So another big fat WOO HOO fell out of my face as I rushed upstairs to the basket.
Here's My Land by Shepherd's Bush: I believe that this will be released at the Nashville Market this weekend, so you can call up your very own LNS and order to your heart's content! (If I'm wrong about this, I do sincerely apologize and hope that I won't get smacked for showing a design that was supposed to be kept secret until the actual release date.) (I'm kind of a boob in this way.)
Olympic watching continues with My Land humming right along for company. I didn't expect to enjoy these games so much, but so far I'm riveted. First off, let's all give a great big WOO HOO to Canada! Please allow me to weigh in as the rube in the Midwestern United States who had no idea how very stunningly beautiful your stuff was up there! Way to go, Canada! Y'all have some great stuff!
As to my opinion of the athletes...well...all I have to say about them is that they must all be completely nuts. Either that, or they were all born without the fear gene anywhere in their bodies. Kind of like soldiers or policemen or firemen or neurosurgeons or toddlers. Wow wee, but these people are amazing. I really am in complete awe of anybody who would willingly do what they do.
I had my very own laundry Olympics yesterday, and I am pleased to report that I captured the gold! WOO HOO (what's with all the WOO HOO'S in this post?)! I washed, dried, folded, and put away eight loads of laundry and there is nary a pair of dirty socks in this entire house! I don't think that's happened since 1982, so I am going to go celebrate with a nice vat of dietCoke and a few hours of blog reading!
Have a WOO HOO day!
