Schoolgirl Lessons is finished

Hi all! I started LHN's Schoolgirl Lessons last week on Thursday night and finished it up last night (Tuesday). It was a very quick stitch and very fun to stitch. I used Belle Soie in Mer Bleu (1 full skein) and stitched it on 32ct Lakeside Linens V. Lentil.

Also, here is the start of my Quaker Moments by Debbie Draper Designs that i started tonight. I am stitching this one on 32ct Sand evenweave from Silkweavers using NPI silks in Crimson Tide Range #759 lot 4. Hopefully this will be another quick stitch for me. I also need to finish up an exchange by this weekend.

It was a warm day here in AZ so I took the kids to a spring training game this afternoon. Caitie, Dustin and I had a great time and us girls of course got a little sunburned even with the sunblock on. It should be tan by tomorrow though. They also had the Budweiser Clydesdales there which was pretty cool, have never seen them in person. They are absolutely beautiful and huge horses. That dalmation is quite the photogenic dog, he watched for the different cameras and would walk around and pose. LOL That is Caitie and I in the pic, Dustin took it and we weren't sure if he did, we were looking right into the sun. LOL

My Dad lived in St. Louis for a number of years and we'd go to Anheiser-Busch Grant's Farm they own it and have their stables and breeding program there. The clydesdales ar so lovely aren't they?!
