~ Weekend News and TUSAL ~

Saturday, Lisa and I had a delicious brunch at Mimi's Cafe.......and then went to the movies. We saw Alice In Wonderland.......and loved it. The visual affects were awesome. I hope you get a chance to see this movie...I think you will like it too...at least I hope you do. Sunday we went to the Peddlers Fair and we found some little treasures, my favorite find was a wonderful crock and I'll be sharing my fun finds later on. Today there is a new moon so it's time to share my........
ort jar for the Totally Useless Stitch Along. Carl bought me this sweet little jar...it's really a shaker (I usually have the lid on) and I love it. I love the swirls in the glass I call it my little kaleidoscope.

I'm nearly finished stitching "Chocolate Box" by LHN and Agatha is a fun little freebie from the Sampler Girl. Mysteries are my favorites to read and Agatha Christie is "Queen" of the mystery writers....green was her favorite color so I changed the colors around and I like the way this little stitch turned out. Not sure if I'll put it in a little frame or make a little pillow....what do you think? Yoyo is hosting TUSAL....stop by and say hi...she has a great blog and is an amazing stitcher, plus see who else has orts...hugs, Linda

Hi Linda:
I hate to admit this, but I have never read an Agatha Christie book. I love Miss Marple, but I have seen movies, not the books.
Your stitching is coming right along.

It sounds like a fun weekend! Alice AND Mimi's Cafe. Yumm yumm! The first time I went to Mimi's Cafe was in Colorado. We were all in love with it, so now when we go down to visit my brother in Virginia, we stop off in Maryland at the only Mimi's that we've been able to find on the east coast.

Lovely progress on your stitching!

I have 'Chocolate Box' in my stash to stitch too - I even have finishing fabric for it. Guess I should actually stitch it sometime soon!
