Five on Friday

It's here too soon, I'll have to scramble to find five this week.  But do join the other bloggers at FastBlog for this week's posts.

First and Foremost.  I finished my cross-stitch.  I started it last August, it was supposed to be a Christmas present, it will be a birthday present, but I can't show it for a while.  It was really an ambitious project for a first project and I learned a lot.  It was really slow going in the beginning, but by the end it really moved along.

My second is my table ready for the rest of spring, no more bunnies just flowers

Had to change the picture, my lemons and limes came in so it's flowers and citrus.

My third one is my new cutting board made of glass.

My fourth is the third bird puzzle I've finished and the next one I started.

My fifth is my new suitcase, it has 4 wheels so you can wheel it any way.  Won't  say where we're going, but they're  predicting snow for one of the days we/re going to be there and we're not going to Alaska.

  Well that's my five, please excuse the brevity but my cat objects to me typing and was attacking my hands the whole time I was typing.  Hope you have a good weekend.


  1. Exciting. I wonder where you are off to! Hope you gave a great time. Well done finishing your cross stitch, such a lot of work, makes my eyes sore these days. 😊

  2. Cats can be so helpful. Nice cutting board. A trip, with snow? I take it that you enjoy snow. You have been busy and deserve a trip.

  3. I am in the pool and several places I know had snow !
    Love your table top.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. I have a cross stitch of the Millenium hanging on my wall, it only took me 10 years to complete it!

  5. Good choice on the pink suitcase. You'll be able to find it easier in the sea of black suitcases if you're flying. Have fun and take pictures for us.

  6. Have a Happy Mother's Day dear Janet. Pat xx

  7. A fun five. Happy mother's day and have a good trip away.

  8. I'm looking forward to the reveal of the cross-stitch when that's possible. I like your lemons and citrus theme around your home for the new season. You choose some very pretty jigsaws to work on. Travel plans and preparing for them are exciting. Have a very peaceful weekend.

  9. I like the jigsaw, and the cutting board. Happy Mother's Day.

  10. I'm looking forward to seeing your cross stitch. Snow in spring? Now you've got me wondering where you're going.

  11. I do like that jigsaw puzzle ...
    Looking forward to the cross stitch reveal ...

    Now, I wonder where you may be going?
    Have a good weekend.

    All the best Jan

  12. Love the lemons and your cat deciding what can and can't be done. Amazing creatures, cats. Would love to see the cross stitch, haven't done any cross stitch for years. Have a good week. Cathy x

  13. Your spring table decoration is very fresh! Happy Mother's Day!

  14. I like the cutting board, we have a granite one and I love the fact that the knives can't scratch it, although it does blunt the blades faster than a wooden or plastic one.
    Thanks for joining in with Five on Friday, we hope you have a wonderful week :)

  15. Several of my friends commented about having snow in Colorado. Now I wonder if that's where you're going.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
