This past weekend we had a lovely spring weekend here. I do love this time of year, and of course with our anniversary coming up this week and Easter this past Sunday I always think of being in Rome. Maybe one day we’ll go back. But aside from some family time and an amazing pre-anniversary dinner this weekend, I did manage to squeeze in some stitching time too.
Where My Heart Blooms is moving along, slowly but surely. I mindlessly worked on the side of my house. I have been watching that show on Friday nights called “Who Do You Think You Are?”. I am finding it so fascinating. Of course, Eric and my father are both knee-deep in genealogy, and I’ve done some research on my own family too (prior to my dad taking it over). So, it really is interesting to see these shows. Plus, with it being Census time, and having done research by looking into the Census Records, I’m very excited to fill ours out and be counted. If you haven’t filled yours out yet, please do it! Anyway, I’d finally convinced Eric to watch the show with me, but our DVR thinks it is smarter than we are and didn’t record the new episode on Friday. I was so disappointed, because I really wanted to see Brooke Shields, since she goes to Rome to research her family history. Well, Eric to the rescue, he was able to find the show online and we watched it through our tv last night – how cool is that??? It was a good show, and not only did I get to see a bit of Rome, but also Villa Torlonia, which Eric and I had actually been to while we were there! It’s all making me want to get out my Tesori d’Italia again and work on it asap! But, for now…here’s WMHB…
I also worked on bit on ATS on Saturday. I knew I probably wouldn’t have time for it on Sunday, so I got my weekly stitching in a day early. This is a horrible photo because I didn’t take it off the scroll frame to photograph it. Just use your imagination that it’s a better photo. I finally got both of those pikes done, which was a good stopping point. The tops of them remind me of the Tin Man’s funnel hat. But, I digress… Next week – SNAKES!
So, that’s it for me. I hope to have an anniversary post up on the other blog later this week, if you’re interested. Enjoy your week!
I am grateful for a romantic dinner and memories of Italy.
