What I've been up to!

Howdy! It has been awhile since I have posted.  I completely missed the last IHSW.  I stitched but forgot to sign up or check out any blogs. Somehow the third weekend just passed me by.  I have been doing my fair amount of stitching.  I finished my second 2012 challenge project.  It was from a magazine and I believe it's called Spring Angel. I started in at the beginning of this year and it went pretty quickly. Now I just need to iron and frame it.  I have also been working on a RR.  It's an Andy Warhol-esque piece.  It is going slowly, but steadily.  Also have a pic for that.  And in addition to stitching I have become enamored with The Hunger Games.  I saw the preview for the movie a few weeks ago and thought to myself that I should check it out and see what it was all about.  I had heard the name before but didnt' know anything about it. I finished the first book in about 4 days.  Just finished the second book last night.  And I hope to start the last book tomorrow.  I have also reading another book called Zeitoun by Dave Eggers.  It is about a family and Hurricane Katrina. It is based on a true story. My boss recommended it to me and I just finished it yesterday as well. 

I am going to Orlando twice this year! Woot!  I am going by train at the end of April (it's pretty cheap to take the train!) to do wedding stuff with my sister who is getting married in August. Yea! And then going back again, driving this time, in August for the wedding/vacation time.  I can't wait! 

On to some pics!
