Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday!

I am really looking forward to this weekend's IHSW!  Since I have the holiday on Monday off, I have plenty of time for stitching and hermitting!

My hope is to finish up the mooses WIP which was a Christmas gift so needs to get finished!  

Once that is complete, I can then get back to my Scarlet Letter WIPs and hopefully get a finish in before the end of the challenge next month.  

I am also looking forward to the SAG awards on Saturday.  Love watching all the red carpets shows and hoping that my faves win!  One of my faves this year is American Hustle, great story with a twist and awesome 70s music and fashion.  

I also started a new book, Luncheon of the Boating Party by Susan Vreeland.  Only about 20 pages in so far and love it already.  Isn't that the best when that happens!?  It takes place in Paris and is about the artist Renoir.  

I just finished Vreeland's Girl in Hyacinth Blue and was fascinated with how that was written about the history of a painting and the story of each owner who owned it before all the way back to the artist.  All fiction of course but fun just the same.  I really enjoy doing family trees so this was an interesting take on that concept.  

Ok, have to run now.... I am baking brownies and my oven is beeping at me, all done!  Can't wait to see how they come out... I realized I had no canola oil in the house so I used olive oil instead!  hmmmm, Italian brownies?  Will let you know how it goes!

Have a wonderful weekend!  I hope to have a finish to show you after the weekend!  

Happy stitching!  xxxx

Oh Krista! Olive oil? Hope they were good. Brownies are my favorite food on earth.
