Page 1 finished, started page 2

I have been enjoying stitching on her. She is quick and not to bad on confetti. Only 1 week left to stitch on her so I am hoping to get maybe 2 columns done.

I read/listened to:
10th Anniversary by James Patterson and this is from his Women's Murder Club series. I enjoy the characters and how they are friends.

Poison by K. R. Whitaker - the 5th book in his Jason Turner saga. That is it for now for this saga but he says he isn't done with it. He has a few stand alone books and another series and right now he is writing a series which sounds like it will be a lot of fun to read. Nothing like his other books. You can only get his books in the Kindle edition. He is a friend of mine so I get to discuss his books with him.

Red Mist by Patricia Cornwell. This is a part of her Kay Scarpetta series. I have been reading her books forever and keeping on with this series.

The Bone Bed by Patricia Cornwell. I just started this one and hopefully can finish it this week.

I haven't watched any movies the past week.

Saturday Dylan and Amber moved to another apartment so I got to watch Carson. He was soo good and can't wait to see him again. I had dinner for them, when they were done moving so they didn't have to unpack all the kitchen stuff and they wouldn't spend their money ordering out. They now live 10 minutes from me and I drive right by their road every day.

Still waiting for Spring to show up here in WNY.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I like to be in the spirit despite not being Irish. My hubby is though. I wore a green shirt today.

So last week I got a lot of stitching time in. Wednesday we had a blizzard so I stayed cooped up in the house watching a bunch of movies and stitching. We ended up with well over a foot of snow, almost 18".

So this is how much progress I have made.

Alex Cross - liked it
The Double - Good
A Christmas Story 2 - cute

Today I finished listening to an audiobook:
10th Anniversary by James Patterson. It's from his Women's Murder Club series , which I like a lot.

So I keep forgetting to post a pic of my grandson. Carson is now 2 months old and sooo cute.

L&L Fairy Grandmother February progress

I started this on the 1st and continued to stitch on her for the whole month of February.

She is now put away for a couple more months.

Last week I met up with a few close cross stitch friends. We rented a beautiful house on Lake Marion in SC. Lots of stitching and laughter. 3 of us had to leave 2 days early to make it home before storm Titan hit. We were bummed but wanted to have a safe trip home.

I finished reading 2 Kindle books:
Tragedy and triumph- K. R. Whitaker
Wake at Your Own Risk - K. R. Whitaker

I highly recommend this series. He has another series and a few standalone books and is working on a new series. Please check them out.
