Good Morning Monday,,

I am really hoping this week brings on lots of accomplishments..and sunshine.  Yesterday was a nice relaxing day, I sat outside and listen to the birds sing, and I got a treat of seeing a monarch butterfly,a cardinal,a blue jay and a cute little grey squirrel.  I got some more stitching done on Mary's Best and I am really enjoying working on it.
I finally met some other stitchers, you don't know how excited I was to find a stitching group here in my neck of the woods, it pays to comment on other peoples blogs in your area..thank you Melody..and I found a EGA group to join also, so overall it was a very good weekend..
Well here s a updated picture of Marys Best, I hope you all have a productive and quiet week,,till next time keep stitching..
