Tuesdays Are My Stitchy Night

So Tuesday came and went and I did manage to get a little bit of stitching done but I can't show you what I've been stitching since it's for an exchange. No sneak peeks...sorry! I still have one more week to get this exchange in the mail and there is still so much I want to add. I have the front done. Still need to stitch a back and I wanted to stitch another little something before sending it far, far away. I really want to get the exchange done by this weekend so I can work on the QFRR before my so-called vacation next week.

Even though there are no stitchy pictures, I have other pictures to share. Over the weekend, *the boy* and I went to Costco. He has an unhealthy addiction to blueberries. Yes, I know blueberries are healthy but with as many as he eats, he should be a Boy Smurf by now! Jeezus! Costco is cheap...2 pounds of blueberries for $6. So we walked out with 8 pounds worth. Why? Because we are crazy!! To be honest, we froze about 5 pounds for baking throughout the year and the rest...*the boy* will probably eat without a problem. At Costco, I saw a bunch of bright pink peonies. I love peonies and have been inspired by bloggers who actually have real peonies growing in their garden. Living in a 3rd floor apartment, there is no such thing as "garden"! I bought a bunch and they opened up so fast! They are a bright splash of color in my living room. The next day, *the boy* crutched over to the farmers' market and bought be lilys. He came home with three abundant stems sticking out of his backpack. I decided to just arrange them with the peonies and ta-da! It's a lot of pink but it's a fun arrangement...If I only had some baby's breath or greens, it's be just perfect!
*The boy* had his birthday a few weeks ago and this tee shirt was part of his birthday present (along with a very nice leather wallet and dinner at his favorite restaurant). I bought the tee shirt as a joke because I call him "dorkasaurus" all the time! *The boy* is truly a dork and he sometimes frustrates me which leads me to exclaim "gawd, you are such a dorkasaurus. Shut up!" Well, lo and behold, they actually sell this tee shirt. *The boy* loves it and will sometimes wear it out in public! OMG, how embarrassing! I truly meant it as a jokey house shirt. I thought I'd show you guys the dorkasaurus.
And here is *the boy's* travel around accessories. Lovely crutches aren't they?! He's going on 5 months on crutches. We are hoping that he won't have to hit the 6-month mark on them. It makes doing fun summer stuff like concerts and festivals really, really difficult. And before I forget, the new moon was on Monday so I am reporting my TUSAL a couple of days late. The snips are still pretty low in my jar even though I feel like I was stitching up a storm (per my standards anyways)!Mostly what shows up on top are the red, white and green bits from the Christmas in July exchange I am working on. Below that are the browns from my ABC Lessons.
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was mainly errands, resting, baking (unsuccessful recipe at that) and car shopping. I have my top 2 cars from a car make I wasn't even considering. Go figure! Still more looking around to though.

Have a wonderful week!

Until next time...

For dh's last b-day I bought him a "I Godzilla (picture of Godzilla) Tokyo" t-shirt. He wears that in public too.

You have done a few nice stitches since I was here last. I'm so sorry you had to frog that border, but we've all been there, sometimes ya just gotta do it. Can't believe **the boy** is still on those crutches, soon...I'll send him a little healing energy, could help (LOL). How cool you found the perfect T for him!! And of course, your Totally Useless Container is terrific but I do hope, just because it's fun, that you can find some more stitching time for yourself.
