And The Mystery Motif Is...
In my last post I asked if anyone could guess what the motif would be that goes above my initials in the sampler. I had a few guesses, most of which were a panda. While that was a really good guess, it's not correct. The mystery motif is (drum roll, please)....
When I ordered my sampler Z was going through his Star Wars phase (he takes after his mother, after all!) and we would watch a Star Wars movie at least once a day, so when I was going through the process of picking what I absolutely had to have on my sampler Star Wars was right up there at the top of my list right next to my furry black and white friend. I saw the R2D2 and Vader motifs on another sampler that Nouveau Encore Designs did and asked for them to be put into mine as well. I am happy to report that I am about two thirds of the way done with page 19. I'm getting my dancing shoes ready for the big happy dance of joy I will be doing when this baby is done. I wanted to take a picture, but my camera battery died after I took the Vader motif picture, so an updated photo will have to wait until next time.
I have not gotten a whole lot of stitching done in the last few days, though, because I discovered that the new book by Phillipa Gregory, called "The White Queen", was out, which made a trip to the local book store a really important thing to do. Once I get really into a book I can finish it in a few days, so now that the book has been read and lent to my neighbor I can get back to my stitching.
Less than two weeks until school starts here, and today is a rainy, lazy day. I told the kids that they could be "pajama boys" today, which is something that they love to do, and something we really have not done alot of this summer. M asked if we could get back to the beach one more time before the summer ends, so I may try to do that with them next week.
I guess I need to get back to the laundry, although I would really much rather stay here on the computer and get sucked into a few games of Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook. I have just discovered this game and I am totally addicted. M likes to play it, too. Maybe I'll just play one game.
