Fair Square Update

I received my squares from Karen T. about three weeks ago.  I'm a little behind in posting pictures ... she also received the squares I sent her about two weeks ago.  It's been a little busy around here because I am in the process of changing jobs.  I hope you enjoy :)

As for current stitching ... I've been working on DH's stocking and my pin.  I'm about half done with my pin (unfortunately don't have an updated photo).  I think I might begin a new start this weekend.  Enjoy your long weekends in the US ... don't forget to remember our fallen service men and women on Monday.

My Favorite Things

Since Shari tagged me ... here you go.

These are the rules:

1. Mentioned who tagged you.
2. List six unimportant things that make you happy.
3. Tag six more blogs, then go and comment on their blogs. Let them know that have been challenged, and invite them to play along.

Six Favorite Things

1. Watching TV series with my husband ... we started with the first season of NCIS and have also worked through How I Met Your Mother, Lie to Me and started Scrubs.

2. Reading ... mostly fiction but I'll read a lot of different things. I love to go to the library and check out a stack of books to read.

3. Cross stitch ... I love seeing the designs come together as you put more stitches in the project. Amazing what you can do with some fabric and floss.

4. Sunsets/sunrises ... the sunrise is the best part about having an early morning watch. I love the late watches when the weather is clear and you can see all of the stars.

5. Hot chocolate

6. Pictures ... I love to take pictures of people, places and things.

I think I'm going to pass on the tagging of others this time ... if you want to play along, feel free. If you do ... please leave me a comment so I can see your responses.
