Quiet Week

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.  

~Dr. Seuss

This has been a very quiet week for me.  No shopping or meetings in the evenings.  I've been able to get in a lot of sewing and stitching.  Now next week will be the complete opposite.  I have something going on 4 evenings and a full day next Saturday.  Luckily we have only a couple of errands to run this weekend so there will be time to charge the batteries.  How has your week been?  Will you have a quiet weekend like me?




Watching a crab skitter across the sand at the beach is so much more fun than watching a spider climb my wall.  And they make such a wonderful meal!  Here are some interesting facts about crabs:
A crab is a decapod (meaning having 'ten limbs') which has eyes on short stalks and a broad flattened carapace (a hard protective covering of bone or chitin) with a small abdomen folded under the thorax and pincers
Soft-shelled crabs are blue crabs that have recently cast their shells
About one-quarter of the crab's weight is meat
The Crab typically walks sideways
* Average crabs live no longer than 3 years.
* The crab's scientific name is Callinectes sapidus which means "beautiful swimmer"
* If a crab loses its claw, the claw will grow back
* The teeth of the crab are in its stomach.
The biggest crab till date was found in Maryland. It was a male and measured 9 inches
The most colorful crab in the world is probably the Sally Lightfoot Crab. It has red, orange, yellow and white colors.



I continue to work on Dancing With The Stars.  I have made another Lambada block and then added....

This block is called Viennese Waltz.  I'm still lovin' FFP!



Last week I sent in another completed cross stitch block to WOCS.  

They are creating a quilt with a beach theme.  These flip flops worked up quickly and were easy to work on in the car.

The DWTS block is spectacular. I love the fabric choices.

The flip flops - adorable. They will appreciate that beautiful stitching.

I'm glad you enjoyed a productive week and hope the weekend errands aren't too crazy for you.

Make this whole process part of the photographer's grade.
Most of the horror stories you have heard about dating occur when daters rush the process.
Of course, there are plenty of professionals who never attended
a single class, so it's up to you to decide
what works best for your career.
