So I feel like I haven't made much progress on the Plantation Sampler. But here it is.
I switched to the medium blue-green for the verse cause I liked the color better.
I'm feeling restless on this project so I'd better get to the pretty picture part now to get myself back into this one!
Kim, of Threadheads, Unite!, is having another giveaway! She's going to be giving away some yummy April Cornell plaids. Sigh. I love woven plaids. I love April Cornell. So of course I entered. You should too!
And finally, I have to say congratulations to Roger Federer. I know, lots of you don't give a fig about tennis. But Federer made tennis history on Sunday by winning the French Open for the first time and thus completing a career Grand Slam. He's one of only 6 men to have achieved that, and one of only two (Andre Agassi being the other) to achieve this feat on three different surfaces. He also tied Pete Sampras' record for the most Grand Slams won, 14. He's been in 20 straight grand slam semifinals, and 15 of the last 16 grand slam finals. He's definitely up there as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. And I love the fact that he cries. Like Andre Agassi, one of my other tennis heroes, who was also not afraid to show his emotions. Here's hoping that Rafael Nadal overcomes his knee problems and that Federer and Nadal continue their rivalry. And here's hoping for Andy Murray as well -- wouldn't it be something if he won Wimbledon? I always held out hope for Tim Henman, and now I'll hope for Murray too. Wimbledon is my favorite of the slams. And it starts next week! And by the by, if Nadal manages to win the US Open this fall, he would complete a career grand slam as well. Wouldn't that be something!
It's the last week of classes at the high school here. Then a couple of weeks of final exams. The boy child will have his last exam on June 22 and then he'll be free! No more school till the fall! Unbelievable. Where did the school year go? Ack!!!!
I'm off to enjoy one of my last days sans kids. :D I'm putting off the errands and the cleaning for once -- not going to waste the time! lol! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments. I love to read them!
