Embroidery Mixed with Family Adventures

I.  AM. IN. LOVE.  Presencia Finca Perle Cotton #8 is where it is at!  Received some for free from a gal in New England,but not all the colors are what I am needing currently.  The Peacock Blue is the exception above.  Found a great website called Yarn Bazaar that I am going to try out though.
Anyone want to trade some colors?  Seriously.

Back to this quilt.  ha!  It is leftover HST's from the rainbow swap and a few from my stash I threw together one day last week.  Then I pulled out a DS rarity in the Katie Jumprope line (won months ago) and went to work.  Quickly finished the top and then pieced the back with some Kona,Pure Elements and Tres Belle.  Onward to hand embroidery.  I was itchin' badddd!!  It was calling my name!

There it is and I have been happily dong my running stitches for the last few days.  There is much more done than in the pic,but wanted to give ya'll some eye candy for a bit!  Tease, I know.

Went to the Museum of Natural Sciences yesterday with my family in Raleigh,NC.  What a great adventure.  We will be returning.

Hands on activity room for Ayden---AND daddy;)

4 floors to climb,run,laugh,ask many questions,and just stare at the wonderful marvels of this world!

Thinking the boys liked it.

Me too.
