A Quiet Sunday

Today was a stay at home,  quiet kind of day.   While blogging this morning,  Shimelle had a giveaway of a handmade cross stitch kit from an Etsy shop.  Just looking at these kits was the motivation I needed to pick up my red sampler and actually work on it!  I sat at the kitchen table peacefully crossing stitches as I listened to the ducks and birds in the pond.  I am happy to report that my crazy looking magnifying glasses seem to be doing the trick and my eyes were not strained at all.  It felt so great to revisit this passion of mine and I am so close to finishing my sampler.  I can't wait to get it framed and up on the wall.

We spotted this amazing pelican in the pond,  so Rob ran out to get some shots before he flew away.  They always look so pre-historic to me.

Then we said Happy Birthday to Lisa.  She turned 22 today and we ate cake!

The usual silly photo of my girls...

and finally, one I think I can scrap.  Yay!!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)


  1. Oh Jen, you have to scrap the funny ones too!! Happy Birthday to Lisa. :) I can't wait to see your page with her bday photos! :) My oldest just turned 23 in June! Gosh, you are inspiring me to dig out my stitchery. I haven't worked on it in years!!!

  2. Wow, great that you got some work done on the sampler! I've always wanted to do one of those - maybe one day. Great pelican shots! And Happy Bird-Day again to Lisa. ;-)

  3. Jen I´ve to say that I feel sooo jealous!!!! Cross stitch was my passion before I began with scrapbook,but I left it because I had a serious bursitis caused by the amount embroidered.Till today I´ve a huge collection of leaflets

  4. Your sampler is looking fantatsic Jennifer. I need to get some of those glasses, without a doubt!

    Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl

  5. I love crazy should scrap them.

  6. Happy birthday, Lisa! Looks like you've been having fun! I almost picked up a counted cross-stitch stocking kit at Micheal's today. Can you believe they're already into the Christmas stuff? But then I thought...if I'm going to do it, I better start soon or I'll never finish in time! :) Hope you're having a great day!
