The Eagles - I Get To See Them in Concert Tomorrow Night!!!!

The Eagles are one of my all time favorite bands and I've never had the opportunity to see them in concert until now. My co-worker is taking me. I'm sooooo excited. So many of their songs bring back memories. Here's one of my favorite songs.

Do their songs bring back memories for you?

Spring....bringing new things

Spring, time to start anew.....

Well, I have put my etsy shop on vacation. I'll leave it like that for awhile until I decide if I want to close it for good or not. Never say never!!! I've enjoyed the shop but, it is a lot of work and I just don't have the motivation right now. I've also given up my spot on the Moonlight Journey Design Team.  I love Becky and Lynn and I will continue to use and  promote their products but, I didn't think it was fair to be part of a team and not pull my weight.

So, this brings me to what do I do with my spare time? Well, I'm finishing up knitting a sweater that I should have finished months ago cause I wanted to wear it during fall and winter! It's the first sweater I'm knitting that I'm really paying attention to fit and made a swatch and adjusted the size according to the yarn and needles and all that. So far, so good with that. I'll have pics of it soon.

So, on to my next craft. I bought this by mail today:
I'm getting back into embroidery. I haven't done it for years! I actually learned how to embroider before I learned to knit. I think my mother still has my first project. It was a bunch of flowers in a little vase. I think I did it when I was around 10....

I thought this would be a good starting project. It looks like it has simple stitches and shouldn't take me too long to do. I'm thinking of going back to an all white bedroom and this would look quite nice on an all white bed with some white sheets with a crochet edging....ah spring!

And the Winner Is.....


Since I had a whopping 4 people participate in my giveaway. Everyone gets a necklace. I did do a random drawing for the pendant shown and Sheila will get that one. I'm going to email everyone personally to let them know and get address's. Everyone will get a pendant similar to the one shown.

Thanks for participating everyone!
