Happy Monday!!

It was a cold dreary weekend at my sunshine in the sky just grey clouds, cold air, dampness and some rain.  A good weekend to stay inside and keep warm.

My youngest son and his family came to stay for the weekend and my oldest son and his family came for a visit on Saturday!  We celebrated my husband's birthday a week late but that was ok with him. We had a nice family meal of take-out pizza and salad. There is a nice little Italian Restaurant in our town called The Brick Oven...they have the best white pizza and their regular pizza is very good too!  They make wonderful salads with the best tasting Ranch Dressing I have ever had, wish they sold their dressing by the bottle!

We had so much fun watching my granddaughters play!  They are both crawling now and into everything!  I really need to do some baby-proofing around my house before they come again for a visit. It won't be long before they are both walking! 

I did managed to get a little stitching in before the house filled with people. Here's my progress on "Revelation" and "Red House in Winter".

My Big Toe Designs
32 ct. natural linen
Weeks Dye Works Threads

Little House Needlework
"Red House in Winter"
32 ct linen
DMC and Crescent Colours Threads

I should get "Red House" finished this week since there is not much left to stitch on it!  And I hope to get at least one other ornie finished too!

That's all I have for today!  I wish everyone in blogland a wonderful week! 

Blessings and Happy Stitching!
