I have had a plague of earworms lately. My current one is 3AM by Poets of the Fall, which replaced Viva la Vida by Coldplay - both of them are huge improvements over the Oompa Loompa song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! That one was stuck for almost a week - very irritating to wake up and hear that running through your head - strange thing is I haven't watched the movie recently, so I am not sure how or why it started.
Have you tried these?
Yep, dark chocolate mint M&Ms! They are addictive! I am not really sure why they packaged them in a zip closing package - it wasn't really necessary.
Look what came in the mail!!
First is my bead pack for Chatelaine's Serengeti:
Doesn't European Cross Stitch package things up nicely?
And second is Maxim & Zoya from Plum Street Samplers:
I am trying to figure out what drew me to this as it is not my usual style. Not sure when this will fit in my rotation, but it will be soon I hope.
Stitching? Yes, I actually did do some stitching this week. Here is my progress on Blackbird Designs' Birds of a Feather:

Stitched on 30-count R&R Reproductions Irish Creme linen with Gentle Arts and Crescent Colours
That vine border on the left? It took me three tries to get it right. Counting to five was a very difficult task for me last weekend. It seems that the easier something is, the more I have to frog.
Birds of a Feather was my Friday stitch, the rest of the weekend I worked on Just Nan's Christmas Elegance
