Getting Closer To Finishing Another Project

Today was a day I could sleep better.

I enjoyed the morning while Patrick slept. Phil stopped by and gave me so lettuce from the garden. It was awesome! I gave him the blueberries I picked on Friday. Good trade I think.

Patrick was replacing the old lights (ceiling) with the ones mom was getting rid of. They look great in the two rooms. It's funny how often I heard him swearing! lol

Tomorrow is Brazilian embroidery and I can't remember what I am going to work on. I'll figure it out tomorrow before I go and then I have something else to work on. I am doing the birds if I remember right.

I'm heading back to my cross stitch! Happy Quilting!
