Stitching and something else!

I finished my "Stop and Stitch The Flowers". I'm happy with the way it turned out - the specialty stitches around the outside weren't too bad! Now that I've finished that, I was (notice the use of the word "was") down to one project at home and one project in my travel bag that I work on at work (that is too big to really be a travel project). So...I broke down and kitted up SIX more things! I went Friday to my LNS and bought fabric for 3, and the other 3 I had fabric for in my stash. So...some time in the near future I will be stitching "Stitching" by Hinzeit (sorry if I've spelled it wrong), the St. Patrick's Day equivalent of Stop and Stitch the Flowers (by Blue Ribbon Designs), Lizzie Kate's ABC Lessons, Lizzie Kate's Christmas ABC's, Frederick the Literate, and cute little Lizzie Kate design that is Santa and a Moose (we collect stuffed Mooses!).

Now for something non-stitching...some of you may recognize the image below as a screen shot from the game show Jeopardy:

Now...you may be asking why I posted a Jeopardy question on my blog. Well, it's like this....I graduated from high school with the "David Cullen" mentioned in the question!!!! How awesome is that? He was a journalist for our school paper, and was always a great writer...and his book last year made it up to something like 7th on the New York Times bestsellers list! I just thought it was so awesome!!!!
Anyway - that's it from me for now - Thanks for checking out my blog!

Your finish looks great, Kathy! I can relate to tour traveling project really being too big to be traveling. Good luck on your future projects that you just bought. I think it is neat about your friend making a Jepoardy question!

Wonderful piece you have there. It looks like you worked hard and it's paying off big time. I would say yes it's a little exciting to go to school with someone whose written a novel. I just found out that a women I've been a friend of that I went to school with her son. Kind of weird, not the same as yours but very weird.

Congrats on your finish, it's so pretty! I am participating in a RR next year and instead of sending around one piece to have finished, I am sending out a new piece for each person to start for me!! I hate starting a piece. I'm calling it my reverse RR!!!
