99% OT - what's been going on... by Cheryl Isaak
Well, Senior Week and HS graduation have been and gone. I really didn't see much of DS all week.

I feed 3 of them along...

OT-Reading Materials by Lucille
I just got my new Kindle and now I have to add a book. Since this is a virgin, I want that book to be a really good read. Not the great American novel, just something entertaining. I love mysteries and contemporary novels. Pretty much anything but Harlequin Romance. Any suggestions?

Corbett v Nicoletti by Lucille
The Nora Corbett cross stitch fairy in today's 1-2-3 newsletter reminded me way too much of Lynn Nicoletti's delightful Thimbelina. Thimbelina hangs proudly on my den wall and she's innovative and clever and lots of fun. This one looks to me like a rip-off, but not quite. Is there some kind...

Finally...a finish by Gillian Murray
Have uploaded my Flamingo on RCTNP. I will take him to the framer this week. I haven't stitched much recently, so I hope this will jump-start the lust for needle and thread. Gillian

Favorite place to find stash that is not an LNS by Cheryl Isaak
Honestly - used book stores are great. I love the "thrill of the hunt" and I'll look for favorite authors and do "random walks" as well. Second - the local thrift shop. All the money stays local. Cheryl
