As for stash, I showed you the beads yesterday-- they are my fondest thing right now, but while home cleaning mom's house I rescued these frames from old pictures and I'm so eager to figure the perfect things to stitch for them :) Aren't they great!!! wait until you see the ones I'm bringing back with me next time!!! :)

Ok, in non-stitching news. Did you see on CNN yesterday that an economics professor from a college in Savannah, GA has rooked his school and a bunch of people out of millions of dollars in an investment scam. He hooked them with his website where he proported to be "Super" Investor or Economist with a cartoon of him as superman. OMG, they gave him their money. Now, guess what? The money's gone and he claims to have amnesia. You know, I just don't know what to say.
