Really, I have ...

I have been stitching. Honest. I just finished beading the third repeat of part 6 of AW. Only one more to do and all of part 6 will be done. I need to get my rear in gear (EEE that rhymes!) and get it done so I can go back to CtS. I also need to get my LKExchange done in the next couple weeks. Ahh, not enough time!
I wan't get any stitching done this weekend because we are going to Pennsylvania for Father's Day to see my dad.
I'll try to post more often. Have a good stitching weekend.

We went to the Gaylord Hotel at the National Harbor for brunch today for our 23rd wedding anniversary. The DH made the reservations at the Pienza Italian Market (I had been there for a lunch with the office). He also made reservations for us to take the water taxi from Old Town Alexandria. It was so cool. We sat outside in the back. The weather was absolutely beautiful. Here are some pictures.

and Convention Center

The restaurant we ate at is in the large glass atrium. The views from the center are beautiful. The are also shops in the hotel. On the second floor there is a glass shop called Strictly First Glass and DH bought me a Swarovski black crystal cat. His name is Theo. I don't have a picture of him but if you go here you can see him. He is the cutest little black cat. We had a great day.

I caught up

I finally finished part 5 of AW. By the time I get to the fourth time of stitching the same thing, I'm groaning, but I persevered and finished it tonight. Here it is.

I've already started part 6. It doesn't have as much backstitching. Hopefully it will go a lot faster.

Have a good stitching weekend.
