Ahhhh....Spring in MN

Spring has FINALLY come to MN!!

I can't wait for the first steaks on the grill.....

Now, where should I hide those Easter eggs?

Eddie Izzard

YAY!!! I was able to get presale "fanclub" tickets to see Eddie Izzard when he is in Minneapolis in May! General tickets go on sale March 16. It was a frantic morning trying to get that password to be able to buy presale tickets, but I got it and managed to get tickets. My fellow Eddie freak, Maria, will be coming from Toronto to go with me. We've seen him together in Toronto and Montreal several times. This time she's coming to Minneapolis. It will be fun, fun...FUN!

Merry Cox Workshop

I have finally gotten back to working on the piece for the Merry Cox workshop next weekend. It's a lot of fun to stitch but I definitely need good light and a magnifier. It's stitched on 36 ct. and much of the work is over 1. The photos don't capture the color of the fabric at all. It's actually quite gold. My sheep kind of wandered from their original placement but it worked out okay. And I'm not sure why there is a crown floating in the air but there formation?

Now it's onto the pincushion! Think I can get it down by Saturday? I don't!
