Too too much...

I had Saturday off, unusual, and Mr H and I took a ride to Wickenburg....had a couple of nice hours walking around. It is just North of us about a 30 minute ride. Sunday.... well, we both seem to be crashing back to that bug we had. Neither of us felt well so it was a very laid back day. Today is another day and things to do. Of course getting up at 2:30 was not my plan, but nevertheless, the Betty Crocker Cinnamon Streusel muffins are just out of the oven and the kitchen smells delicious., laundry on and getting my stitching ready. A few errands to do later and then back to relaxing. I do not want to be sick again!
A few posts back, someone was curious about the frame used in my project....
here they are....They are very inexpensive and I use them for projects that are within the size of the frame. I do still use my scroll frames, but these are perfect tension and unlike regular hoops, the only frame creases are those that do not matter. I use a size that fits the stitch area within the frame with room to spare. I have the 6 inch, 5 x7 and 8 x 10. I also like the octagon shape.
I am also able to store the project for on the go easier as it is quite flat unlike the scrolls.  I especially like to use the 6 inch when doing ornaments and have 2 of them. They are plastic so they are very light weight. I also use the Q-Snap frames. Just thought I would share....

I have been reading about this Google change...what are your thoughts about upgrading to the Google+..... I am always leery about making changes to the blog and loosing what I have, or not knowing what I am doing is really more like it! I must tell you that I am not computer literate.... I hate touching buttons and adding and deleting things. I think I may have to get some expert advice about this....
Once again, the mysterious Snapdragon flower has appeared outside the garage door... now, if the newspaper delivery person does not kill it when he/she throws the paper at the garage door each morning, or the trash guys do not crush it, we will enjoy the only place Mr H can grow them and he did not have anything to do with it! It looks like there will be several others growing in the tiny crack between the driveway and the wall. What a treat!
Well, the smell of those muffins is calling to me...a nice cup of tea and putting my feet up is next for me. Thank you all for the kind words and emails.....
Whatever you do today, enjoy.

NOTE: the frames are available at Jo Ann's....
