I need a finish!!

It is almost the end of May and my stitching has been minimal this month.:(
I don't have too much planned this weekend so hopefully I will be able to get a lot done on the Mirabilia Angel. I have made good progress thus far, but still have a ways to go.
This past week has been long, but fun. We went to a bed and breakfast last weekend for our 1 year anniversary. It was great to get away and just chill out. Then this week one of my favorite musicians had a concert on Tuesday night. I spent the rest of the week recovering from staying up late! But, it is the weekend now and I just have to get the house clean, fix dinner and then I can relax (and stitch)!

Sundays never last long enough.

Last Thursday I made my pie for the competition on Friday. I made the strawberry meringue pie, but it didn't turn out quite as good as the first time. But my crusts turned out great! I was proud of them, the best I have ever made!

I had gotten some rhubarb from my sisters yard, and my husband loves it so I also made a strawberry rhubarb pie. It was awesome. Definitely need to save that recipe.

This is me and one of my co-workers with our pies for the contest. I don't think I won, but it was fun to do it and try new pies.

I haven't been able to do much stitching lately, but I got to work on my honeymoon scrapbook and I finished it today! I haven't shown my husband yet, but I hope he likes it. I got it done in under a year, so that is good right :). Hope to be able to stitch some this coming week, but we are going away for our anniversary so I don't know!

Happy Mother's Day!

I have been working on a Mirabilia angel. It is really pretty so far and I just ordered the beads for it. I am having a little trouble finding the metallic DMC floss needed and the Kreinek metallic floss needed. I have found them all on the internet, but all at different places! I may have to wait to finish it for a while. I am going to work on this tonight after I am finished posting (we are watching the new James Bond movie, so I will stitch and watch).

This Friday at work I am entered into a pie baking contest. Here is my practice pie, Strawberry Meringue(sp?). It is really good. I made one for our mother's day celebration there and my whole family really enjoyed it!

And just one more picture. Last weekend we went out to the lake with Scout. She had such a good time once she figured out how to paddle.
Happy Mother's day to all mothers!

Review of Goals, And May Goals

Wow! I cannot beleive that it is May already. Time is flying by and I have been busy!
Heres a review of last months goals and how I did.

Goals for April stitching
1. Finish stitching and finishing off May and July for calendar.- Got May done and finished off. It is hanging in my office right now. I like it a lot and was glad that I found a little button that looked like Scout!! The fabric it is on is on the back of the little pillow.
2. Work on Vegetable Wreath- Made some good progress. I posted this mid-month.
3. Get English Pointer pattern- Started on Hunting companions and plan to make the middle yellow lab into Scout. I have worked on this a small amount, but will probably put it on hold for awhile.
4. Work on Mirabilia angel (possibly finish it ??)- Nope, but maybe this month!

Goals for May:
1. Finish July Erica Michaels cross stitch.
2. Work on Mirabilia Angel (maybe finish it)
3. Work on Mirabilia Under the Friendship Tree
4. Work on Honeymoon Scrapbook (not stitching, but a project I need to finish!)

Happy Stitching!
