Howdy! Does anyone remember the cute little old lady, "Minnie Pearl" from Hee-Haw? It was a show my family always watched when I was a much younger than I am now girl. Anywho, for some reason "Howdy" has Minnie Pearl written all over it. She always wore this large brimmed hat with the price tag hanging down on the back of her hat. It was her funny sense of humor and trademark. She has nothing to do with this post, but the greeting brought her to mind.

It has been soooo long since I last posted, and actually I have stitched (completed) four or five projects.  I guess I must be saving them to post on a rainy day.  Keep your eyes just never know when I will get them posted.  I still need to finish my draft on Shop Hop, Part II.  I kind of left you hanging on that one.  Sorry!!! 

This is a photo as of lunch time today on my latest WIP, Pennsylvania Pinwheel, by Carriage House Samplings.  I changed the colors to DMC 829, 3371, 3857.  As I was stitching this it dawned on me that these three colors are mine and my hubbys high school colors.  Mine were brown/gold and his were the gold/red.  I thought what a coincidence, who would have ever thunk it!!! 

This will have to be a short post, got to get back to the grind, work is calling!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.
