Mirabilia Winter Queen

I haven't posted in a month. My internet was down for 2 weeks and then seems like my Sundays were busy and just didn't get to posting.

I have been watching the first 3 seasons of Game of Thrones and just have 2 episodes left on season 2. I am enjoying them very much.

I haven't been reading much or listening to my audiobooks either. I am reading Drop Dead Beautiful by Jackie Collins and am listening to Dust by Patricia Cornwell. Don't have much more on either one.

I started Mirabilia Winter Queen on 3/14/06 and the last time that I stitched on it was 2/24/10. So I pulled this back out on April 1 and wish I had more progress but I have been busy a few times this month.

2/24/10






Progress as of 7pm 4/20/14




Wow, I guess comparing the 2 pics I have done really well this month. The hair took me the longest.

I leave early Thursday morning for the Mirabilia Retreat in Columbus , Ohio. I can't wait.

I have been spending more time with my grandson and he loves to smile and coo at me. He is so precious.

I did Easter yesterday. Dylan (22) wanted me to do an Easter egg hunt. Justin (24) wanted me to do Easter baskets. I had Scott(DH) hide some eggs and I bought some candy for the baskets but didn't actually have baskets. Had everything arranged at the table for when we sat down to eat. We had a great time. I told them this was our first annual Toland Easter party lol.

Thanks for reading and the comments. Love the comments. I am behind on reading all of my friend's blogs too.

You have accomplished quite a lot! It's not quick stitching either. My stitching mojo seems to be missing right now.

Amazing progress Shelleen. She is beautiful. I love Game of Thrones, I tried to read faster than the series but Season 4 has eclipsed me a bit and I've only just started book 3.

The retreat sounds awesome, hope to see some pics from that.
