Have you tried these?! They are so good! They are the limited edition strawberry/peanut butter flavored M&Ms introduced for the new Transformers movie that came out yesterday. When I first heard of this flavor combination, I was sure it would taste awful but I have to say, it's one of my favorite new flavor releases to date. So, grab a bag and try them! Yummy!

Thomas Update

Just thought I would share my progress on Thomas. He finally has an eye and some feet! He's been really fun to stitch even though I had a moment of panic with him. I "assumed" he was going to be a finished size of 5x7. Well, it dawned on me that in order for him to be 5x7, he has to be stitched on 36 ct. Guess what? I'm stitching him on 28 ct. Panic set in! Luckily, I DID use the stitch count when figuring my 28 ct fabric and he'll be just fine. A little larger than 5x7 but that's ok too!

A XStitch Finish for Me!

It's been a while since I posted so here I am - with a xstitch finish! I know, I know, it's been FOREVER since I stitched but once the bug gets you, you have no choice. I dug through my stash and came out with my La D Da Mocking Bird piece. It's funny, when you are stitching on something, you think you will never finish it, you put it away and when you finally get back to it, you realize you didn't have that much left to do after all.

After finishing the Mocking Bird this weekend, I decided to start something NEW - Thomas by Notforgotten Farms. I got this pattern from my friend Lorrie when I was in Fripp and didn't realize it only finishes to a 5x7 size - just perfect for me!

I couldn't find a better picture on-line for this pattern but trust me, the colors are much nicer!
