Hi, and welcome to my profile and blog! My name is Jodie and I'm a cross-stitch addicted museum studies graduate student. I love stitching (clearly), knitting, quilting, reading, writing, and learning. I have a weird obsession with donkeys that I can't really explain. I'm very attached to the citizens of Llanview Pennsylvania who make the ABC soap One Life to Live worth watching every day, and I am freakishly obsessed with Rachael Ray. I'm a runner, a gardener, and a lover of all different kinds of tea with a very serious coffee addiction. I volunteer at a canoe museum, and I work in a salad bar chopping fruits and veggies, creating baskets, trays, and various seasonal concotions. I have amazing friends, a great family, and the most beautiful German Shepherd. So basically....I'm just me!
That pretty much sums up my weekend! Let's start with a stitchy update. I've started working on the Tea Crazy collection by Lizzie Kate. I love these patterns! I bought them a while ago on a trip to visit my best friend in London and they've been sitting here, begging to be stitched, ever since! So here's my progress on Little Cups of Friendship:
This one is stitching up really quickly and I'm loving the colours!
Well, my weekend involved a lot of social type activities and not nearly enough homework or housework related activities...but I think that's okay once in a while!
On Friday a friend and I went to a winery in Buckhorn and did a little wine tasting! Among my favourites were Frosted Pumpkin wine, seasonal of course, Apple, Peach, and Apricot. Very, very good wine. The place was called Kawartha Country Winery- highly reccommend it!
On Saturday after work, Holly, Cait and I drove out to Burleigh Falls to look at the pretty fall foliage, have some lunch and ice cream, and walk around in the woods. Sunday after work the older couple who live upstairs took me out for a delicious sushi lunch...YUM! And today I visited my parents, where I accomplished a great deal of stitching! So...back to work tomorrow for a busy, busy Thanksgiving week!!
