Peppermint Twist update - on the final stretch....

I'm starting my last section of Peppermint Twist now - hoorah! I'm debating as to whether push ahead and finish it this month or lay it aside and work on Beatrix Potter. This month has gone fast - I was gone for one weekend and we have out of town visitors the next 2 weekends so time is limited. I'll probably stick to my plan of finishing this in May. I still am very happy with it - I had to rechart my initials as it wouldn't fit with the font given in the pattern. When you have 2 M's in your initials, it takes up a lot of room. :)

Here's a little pic of a hibiscus blooming in my yard for those of you still waiting on spring. It won't be long now!

I saw a great video the other day - "Religulous" by Bill Maher. I'm not always a fan of Bill Maher's politics but I really enjoyed this movie. Bill talks to people all over the world about different religions, questioning beliefs, holy books, traditions, etc. Parts of it are really funny. If you are truly a religious person it might offend you so see it at your own risk. On the other hand, if you have questions in your mind or can view things with an objective eye, it makes for some interesting conversation!

  2. Peppermint Twist looking great! It really is a cute piece.

    I saw Religulous a couple of months ago and really liked it but I am what I call a "free thinker" anyway. We don't get HBO so never have a chance to see Maher.

  5. Your Peppermint Twist is looking gorgeous Jeanne! I love this design & it's calling to me loudly. Maybe I can just use some parts of it to stitch a Christmas ornament and that will stop it. :)

  15. Hi Jeanne,

    Thank you for your comment on my BP sal It has been quite hard to chose, just as well I just spend money on my stitching these days!! LOL ( And the garden!!)
    Your Blue Ribbon Design is lovely and so beautifully stitched I debated whether to get that ages ago but bought 'Read Between the Lines'instead and plan to stitch that when I have finished my LHN 'Home of a Needleworker too' and stitch it along with my BP..
    Isn't it nice to have a hobby that gives such delight!
