2 progress pics

I had a pretty busy weekend. Dylan came home late Thursday night/early Friday morning. I did manage to put in a few stitches on HAED QS Fragile Heart.
Saturday was quite busy. I had a BookCross meeting at lunch time. I always enjoy them. I gave away 2 books and came home with 1.
The reason that Dylan came home this weekend was for his girlfriend's senior prom. His roommate even came out for the prom. Allie(Dylan's girlfriend) had a friend without a date for the prom so Dylan's roommate went and he had a great time even though he didn't know one person there, except for Dylan.
                                                                     Allie, me and Dylan

Dylan's room mate Joe

                                                                Allie & Dylan
They had a great time.

Today the 4 of us went grocery shopping. What fun since my car doesn't have a big trunk and we went to 3 stores. Let's just say my 2 door car had groceries on top of Allie's and Joe's laps in the back seat lol.      
Dylan and Joe left here around 6:30 and should be back in PA around midnight.
This coming weekend will be busy as my sister, DH, Allie and I are going to visit Dylan and hopefully do some sightseeing in Philly.

So after they lefy I was able to sit and stitch tonight. I only stitched for 2 hours but it felt good and since it was Sunday, it was Halloween day. Here is It's Halloween by The Drawn Thread. I am so close to the edge of the fabric. I will have to finish it as a bellpull, when it is done and will have to stitch on extra fabric on the ends. I don't know happened when I measured since I check it so many times.

changing rotation a little

I have decided to keep stitching on HAED QS Fragile Heart. It is a SAL with the HAED Forums board and the 3rd page was sent out last month. I am on page 2 so I really want to finish this page and page 3 before the next page gets sent to me. HAED Forums has a new SAL starting the end of June and yes, you guessed it. Oh stop groaning because you all know that I am addicted to them, so I had to sign up. So anyways the new one is another Storykeep. Also I still need to finish SK Sunny. So my plan is to work on these 3 for the year. Plus Halloween on Sundays and a small ornament, not necessarily Christmas, on the last week of the month.
This is my progress tonight on Fragile Heart. I finished filling in the little bit of the forehead and the headbands heart.
I watched the movie The Hangover. I kept putting it off thinking I wouldn't like it but I laughed my ass off. It is crude and has a lot of swearing but so funny.
I also listened to some more of I, Alex Cross by James Patterson. I have 14 more chapters to go. This is the last week of season finales , except for next Monday is House's season finale.
My plan is to watch a movie every night and to listen to at least 1 hour of an audiobook, during all my shows hiatus.

Thanks for all the comments, you all are great friends.

Busy and was sick

I hadn't been on much last week as I was sick. Friday, after work, DH and I went to PA to give money to Dylan. His car needed work on it. On the way there we had no problems. We left Saturday afternoon, to come home and about 30 minutes to an hour we were watching another driver in the passing lane kept putting her brakes on. College age girl. Then she almost side swiped us. Well we were watching her and didn't notice the exit we were supposed to take lol. So we came across a sign that said last exit for Pennsylvania. Ok I don't remember that sign and no way are we near NY. We still have 3 hours to go. Next thing we notice the south bound traffic has a toll booth. I looked at DH and said we have never paid a toll going to Dylan's. Next sign says Welcome to New Jersey! We laughed so hard. It only took us 20 minutes out of our way so we were doing ok time wise. Got turned around and back to where we needed to be. We were home by 8:30pm. So I pulled out HAED QS Fragile Heart and stitched for an hour or 2. I won't be pulling this back out til June.

Yesterday I cleaned the house and did laundry. Went grocery shopping and then played Sims3 for awhile. Pulled out It's Halloween for a couple of hours and watched Season Finale of Desperate Housewives.

Thanks for reading and the comments,

Fragile Heart Progress

I stitched some more on her.
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. Dylan took me out for breakfast and around noon , Justin txt me. I didn't do anything else as I am having sinus trouble and just resting.

Will be watching TV the rest of the day and stitching, unless I fall asleep for a nap. Have to do some laundry too.
