2. I love olives. I put them on just about anything like salads, chili, sloppy joes, etc.

I hope I haven't offended anyone by omitting them since there are many blogs out there that I read and enjoy. I've tried to put out there a lot of the new blogs I've been reading along with some familiar favourites. Also I totally understand if you are not into awards. As far as I'm concerned don't feel obligated. These awards are a way of introducing people to new blogs and stitchers out there but I know that we live in a hectic world where there's often little time for things outside of our usual routine.


  1. Oh Lynn, how thoughtful of you, Thank you
    Be always in stitches.

  2. I just read about your deer encounter after having found your link on Crazy4Book's blog. We have a fair bit in common, including singing in a church choir. My DH is not the director although he's sings in it too. I'll be back soon.....

  3. Hi Lynn,

    I love reading people's answers
    to these questionnaires. You
    find out some pretty interesting,
    and sometimes downright amazing,

    So we also have some things in
    common, aside from cross stitch
    that is. We're both cat crazy.
    I love Science Fiction movies
    too and I am definitely a
    Trekkie of long standing. I
    have no scientific knowledge
    and a weak stomach, but I also
    find forensics fascinating. Well,
    in books and TV shows anyways.

    Things we don't have in common??
    I hate olives!!! Ew!! Yuck!!!

    I'm about as musical as a block
    of wood, though I do sing (??)
    when I'm home alone and can have the stereo blasting (to drown me out). (The cats hide). I've always wanted to be able to sing and to play the piano.

    I'd rather receive books then
    flowers. Flowers die, and Phoebe
    eats them. DH hasn't cottoned on
    to that yet either. He buys me
    flowers for Valentine's Day.

    Figure skating??? Wow. That's
    awesome. Me?? I can barely
    walk upright in shoes. Nuff said.

    Glad to hear you weren't hurt
    during your run in with the deer,
    and I'm also glad that the deer
    seems to have survived the ordeal.
    Sorry to hear about the damage to
    your car though. But you're so
    right, it could have been much

    I've got that Easter pattern
    by Diane Williams too and I look
    forward to seeing how yours turns
    out. Love her stuff!!

    Just a Flake is sooo cute. I love
    that his belly is a snowflake. I
    like your changes to this pattern
    too. I prefer the red scarf, and
    the garland on the tree really
    stands out now and looks quite

    Home of a Needleworker is coming
    along nicely. I love the blue that
    the house is stitched in, which is
    set off nicely by the white trim
    around the windows and door.

    Poor Clarisse!! What an ordeal
    she (and you) had just to get her
    vaccinated. I'm no expert, but
    I've never heard of anyone else
    who's cat reacted that way to
    their yearly shots. Love those
    pictures of her relaxing in her
    new "bed" by the way. How
    relaxed can you get???

    Your Easter decorations are so
    sweet and pretty. My favorite
    is that little girl bunny in the
    pink hat and green sweater and
    dress. She is adorable!!!

    I expect that you're in Florida
    now enjoying the bright sunshine
    and the warm temperatures. Hope
    you have a wonderful time down

    Better end this epic post before
    it gets too much longer. CHeers!

  4. Thanks for the award Lynn. I am glad that Clarisse is all better now. I have not known of any cats to have a bad reaction to vaccinations.
    I am glad that you weren't hurt when you hit the deer. We have to watch for kangaroos and wombats on our roads, they can do massive amounts of damage to cars, not to mention the horrid feeling you get after hitting something.

  5. Awww, thank you so much for the award! I appreciate it. I learned reading more about you. I need to try olives... would you believe I never have had one?! Pickles we love, olives--no. The carb junkie thing--I can totally relate!
