Happy Easter! This holiday is so much more fun with little kids and marshmallow rabbits and a new dress to wear to church.
I put two books on my iPad and I just finished reading one called Guts by the actress Kristen Johnston. I meant to save it to read on my trip but I just kept reading until the end. I enjoyed it. She is very funny even though it is about her addiction. I appreciate her honesty.
I got five eyelets done! Wow! Only nineteen more to go. ARGH. I hope they start to look neater and neater as I go along. I got the stitches about memorized now.
I started the Mr. Snowman stocking. I made several mistakes and had to reverse stitch a bit. So not a glorious beginning. I think he will be very cute when he is done.
I made it my aim to get to the bottom edge of the French pouch. I'm not sure I have linen wide enough to do the whole design. How's that for planning ahead? So I guess I will work my way over to the far side, fold it in half and see if I will have enough to finish. Duh.
The zebra cake was very rich and delicious. It is three layers of chocolate and white cake with two kinds of icing. Yum. I also made some chocolate covered strawberries. They were good too. At our friend's house, she and I played with our new iPads and I learned some stuff from her. She has some great apps. One of them can tell you what music is played and who did it and the lyrics. I've got a lot to learn about my iPad.
Lunch is calling me.
