Are you all heartily sick of me yet?

First of all, thanks to all of you for your comments giving advice about my upcoming trip to a Nascar race. 

Earplugs:  Check
Sunscreen and big hat:  Check
Something soft and cushy to sit on:  Check
Things to ponder during the race to keep me interested:  Check.

You all are too good to me.  Now I'm feeling equipped, mentally and physically.

Stitching?  I'm still stitching this lovely, lovely Quaker.  It has three things going for it.  It's a great design.  I love the color of this PTP fabric (Doubloon).  And I love the silk threads. (HDF's Premium Beredded)  I truly can't wait to pick it up each evening.

The colors are actually deeper than this photo shows.  More maroon looking than bright red.

 The upcoming Memorial Day weekend could be a busy one for us, so I may not be online much.  So I'll take time now to wish you all a wonderful weekend as we "officially" start summer here in this part of the world.

And don't  think I'd let Memorial Day pass without a little bit of Hey Girl!


  1. Lee, I am absolutely not sick of you or your posts!

    Lovely stitching! I love that linen as well. Must make a note of the floss!

    Enjoy your car race and your long weekend!

  2. <3 Hey Girl!!! LOL!!! =) Have a great weekend!

  3. I'm pleased whenever I see you over there in my reader. I miss you when you're gone.

    And AWESOME Hey Girl. I just got a regular sized paycheck for a change, and the first thing I did was take four pieces to be framed! :)

  4. Great progress on your the color combo! And I love the new "hey girl"!

  5. Sick of you? Never!

    Love the red in your Quaker. Beautiful color and aren't HDF silks wonderful? I haven't tried the premium but I have a couple on order :-)

    Great Hey Girl!

  6. Wonderful stitching and awesome "Hey, girl."! Have fun at the races... well, if you can't have fun, don't get sunburned!

  8. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't love your new Hey Girl!

    I hope you enjoy your Nascar event. You're a better woman than me!
