A Stitchin' and Rockin' Weekend!

Helloooooo!  Happy Monday!  
My weekend IHSW update is a little late, but I had today off so for me it is still the weekend! :D   Tomorrow - back to reality!  
There wasn't much hermitting going on but I did get a few stitches in. 
I have been working on Mary Wigham again for the facebook Sampler World group SAL.  I got another motif done... trying to keep up with my goal of at least one motif each weekend so it will be done by the end of the year.  

And I also got started with the Papillon SAL.  
Here are the colors I chose, the pattern called for 3 shades of green and 8 floral colors.  The whole idea of picking colors for a pattern I can't see just makes me twitch!  LOL  
Now to decide which color is A, B, C, D, etc.  I think I will need some wine first!  :D  or maybe I should try eenie, meenie, minee, moe!  LOL

It is TUSAL time again, and I am a few days late but I was away for the weekend so here we go... at this rate, mine will hopefully be filled by the end of the year! 

This past weekend was a fun and rockin' one!  
I went to Atlantic City to see a concert, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones with friends.  What a fantastic show, Ronnie rocked the place!!  
Here are a few pics I snapped.
He played some of his own hits and, of course, some Stones classics... 
It's Only Rock and Roll but I like it, like it, yes I DO!

So, it was a lot of fun and great times, but back to work tomorrow!
I hope everyone has a wonderful new week and happy stitchings! xxxxx

Oooh, I love Mary Wigham and have wanted to stitch it for awhile! Too many things to stitch! Love the colours you chose for the SAL! And I really love that framed piece you have in the background of your TUSAL pic!! I see that it's also your profile pic too!!

Good to hear that the concert was great!

Mary Wigham looks great! Your colors for the Papillon piece look great. That does sound challenging, picking colors for something that you don't know how it will look. Hope it's a fun piece! Cool that you got to see Ronnie Wood too!

Sounds like a great concert in Atlantic City! Love Ronnie Wood, with or without The Stones!

Nice to see Mary,shes looking nice.I have her sitting in a folder waiting to see the light of day.:)

Think i am going to need that bottle of wine when i start the Papillon sal.I think that's the worse bit what colour and do i like it.That's the fun of not seeing the pattern i suppose.

Looked like a good concert too.

Mary is looking great. I started it awhile ago, put it down and never picked it back up. I think it was the linen that I chose
Glad to you had a rockin' good time

Penny said...

Mary Wigham is so pretty! I don't know if I could pick colors out in advance, but the colors you chose look good together. :) Sounds like you had a great time at the concert! Love the Rolling Stones and I remember having a crush on Ron Wood as a teenager. :)

Mary's looking great. HAHAHA!!! I know what you mean about picking colors. I've joined the Papillon class, but not going to touch it for awhile yet. ;)

Your Mary Wigham looks wonderful. It will be fun to follow your progress on her through the year.
Awesome concert. For me, too, it's just Rock and Roll.
