Daffodil Days

Today was the most gorgeous day!  I hope you all had summer-like weather too!  The daffodils are popping open everywhere basking in the sunshine :)  
I have a bouquet of them on my desk at work.  Each year at work we have a daffodil days drive for donations to the American Cancer Society so I get a bouquet for the cause.  
Daffodils are such a happy flower!!

I have gotten a little bit done on Elizabeth Hancock, although it is hard to see...
... see all those lines under the pretty lady?  well, that was really BORING! LOL!  And the house is now started.  
I also changed the color of the lady's eyes back to brown... the gray-blue was too gray and it seemed weird that they matched her shoes!  So now they are back to brown, like mine.  

And since it is a new moon today, here is my TUSAL update.  It does not seem like so much has been added, I think because I stitch to the very end and save every thread I can just in case!

Last night I went to see Casablanca on the big screen!  OMG, what a treat! I was thrilled to see it was playing near me.  I have always been a classic film buff and especially a Bogie fan so it was great to see him larger than life.  I hope they keep bringing classics like this to the theater, it seemed to be a big hit, the place was PACKED!  :D

And this week, Vickie, a blogging buddy, gave me a blog award, how sweet!  
Thanks so much Vickie!!
Liebster is a German word meaning favorite, dearest, or beloved and the Liebster is awarded to new bloggers with less than 200 followers.  In doing so, I pass the LOVE onto five more bloggers; thank my friend and link back to her; post the award on my blog and list the bloggers I pass the Liebster on to with their links; let them know by commenting; and then share five random facts about myself that people do not know about me!  

All in all, I think it is nice to share other blogs that we love as it can only broaden our community and learn more about each other.  So the five blogs I pass on the Liebster to are:
1/ Stitching Cat @ Cat Tails and Needles
3/ Denise @ Country Stitcher

And 5 random facts about me..... 
1/ I am no longer an early bird!  
2/ I love to travel.  
3/ I need my coffee EVERY day! 
4/ My favorite ice cream is Edy's French Silk.  
5/ I am a Rolling Stones fan-atic! 

Thanks again, Vickie!  And Thanks So Much for all of the wonderful comments.  I really appreciate it!  Welcome to my new followers!

It has been a slow stitching week for me but the weekend is looking promising!  :) 
I wish you a happy, stitch-y weekend!! xxxxx
Here's looking at you, Kids!

I was expecting to see Daffodil at Trader Joe's when I stopped by today, but they didn't have them yet. I'll have to keep checking. Elizabeth is long pretty in a nice dress! I haven't done much of stitching this week, but every time when I see your progress, I get very motivated and feel good about it :D Thank you for beautiful inspirations!!

What a lovely post and how nice of you to pass on my blog!

My mom's eyes were gray. Doc said he never saw that shade of blue before! Miss Hancock is looking good.

Veronica said...

LOL! I can understand why those lines were boring to stitch. At least they're done now. Elizabeth is looking wonderful.


Giovanna said...

Any progress is good progress - nice going on Elizabeth, she's pretty.

Chris said...

It looks like you are making great progress.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Vickie said...

Glad to hear someone else besides me uses those threads up right to the end. I don't accumulate that many orts either. It's funny, now I have become an early bird. :)

Margaret said...

Congrats on the award! You're a Rolling Stones fanatic and I'm a Beatles fanatic. lol! Rolling Stones are acceptable too though. :D Love the daffodils -- one of my favorites for the time of year. And your Elizabeth looks great! Letters are definitely boring, but you just plow through them, right? I think her brown eyes are pretty.

Sue said...

Well done on your award, it is such a nice way of learning more about our pin pals.

Samplers, Silks and Linens said...

Thankyou for stopping by! Loving the colours on this sampler - so soothing -Is that a grape-vine your lady is standing under? and a cat beside her.. reminds me of me out in my garden, trying not to sigh for beauty or languish for wealth... :) Have fun on this one - cant wait to see more!
P.S. I also am a coffee girl! :)
