Laughing Out Loud

Apparently, my last blog post's title had a double meaning for some.  I received a few comments of an, ahem, erotic nature (spam, I hope).  At first I was a little dumbfounded with a large, "Huh?"

Next, I burst out laughing.  Laughing so hard, in fact, that there may have been one or two snorks thrown in for good measure.  In future I'll choose my words more carefully.  Still LOL!!

Between laughing, I've been able to get a few things finished.
 
 A little brown vest for a sweet girl..........that I don't know yet :)

 I've been working on this embroidery a long time....not sure if it will wind up in a pillow or the center of a quilt.  I'm thinking more quilt than pillow.
 

As if I don't have enough crafting interests, I found I really enjoy ORIGAMI!!
I found a free pattern here for the little dress and flower, and have had way too much fun with this.
I even put one little dress to good use...........

....and made a card for the hubby's secretary for "Administrative Professional's Day."  Along with a box of candy, she guessed right away that the mister had some help from the missus ;)
 Wouldn't a little garland made out of the dresses be sweet in the sewing room?
 
Lots of the blogs I read make mention of favorite TV shows and movies.  I wonder if any of you have watched "Mr. Selfridge" with Jeremy Piven on PBS?  I really like it and I've heard there is talk of a second season. Also, is anyone out there into "Person of Interest" or "Grimm?" 
 I just love Jim Caviezel, and frankly can't believe how much I'm enjoying Grimm.

Lastly, wanted to share the second book about Miss Buncle. It's just as delightful as the first one.  If you like a light-hearted read, try one of the Miss Buncle books by D.E. Stevenson.


Well, that's it for today.  It is a bright, beautiful day and I'm heading out to enjoy it.
Hope you enjoy yours as well :)

Ooooh, I just love that cute little vest! And your embroidery is so pretty! I went back and checked your old post title -- you're a very naughty girl LOL!

I've been enjoying Mr. Selfridge and I too, read the other day that they've started filming a second season. I thought that was interesting -- being that it's based on a man's life, you'd think they wouldn't have planned to only tell part of his story and only tell the rest if the first season was a success? (Hope that made sense?) I love Person of Interest too!

Hi Amy,
Thank you for the good wishes on our anniversary & hubby's new job!
You sure have been busy making sweet things! Your cards are awesome!
I watch Mr.Selfridge on public TV and love it! It seems that public TV has the best shows. We don't have cable...and regular TV is crappy!
Take care!
Warmly,
deb
