It is Friday - Yahoo! - but I am in search for patience!

It is Friday and the weather here in Northern California is beautiful! Between 60-70 degrees...sunny...little misty & foggy up in the hills, but perfect below.The boys had a 1/2 day of school today due to end of the 1st semester - they just got home and are eating lunch while vegging out in front of the computer playing "World of Warcraft".

Me? Well, since I slept in, I am just now getting on the stationary bike to get in my daily spin...yes, spinning indoors on this beautiful day as my bike needs a little work before I could go out and ride and I just don't have patience to deal with it. But, by spinning in doors I can multi-task...up date my blog, read yours, catch up on facebook and other computer related activities.

As promised, here is a photo of where Family Sampler stands:
I have been working on the vine of leaves above the house...as you see the tree on the left is still missing it's leaves, but I haven't had patience to do them...something about loosing patience lately seems to be a reoccurring theme. Did you come to that conclusion too?

Well, I better find some patience soon so I can work on the ornament I need to finish for Lori for the Ornament Swap...and I am thinking about starting over because I don't like the way the item I am stitching is looking on the dark fabic. I like the design...and I like it on the dark denim fabric, but my "x's" are looking horrible and everytime I look at it I become embarrassed; too embarrassed to finish it and send it to someone. I have another thought/idea of a fun ornament to make for Lori so I will probably start on it tonight and over the weekend. That is the plan!

That is about all from here...until next time, take care and remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
