Some Dance Lessons and A Rose Embroidered Pillow

A friend of mine asked if my husband and I would like to take Latin dance lessons at a local adult education program.  Much to my surprise, my husband was game (I thought I would have to drag him).  Well, we went last night and there were about ten couples in all.  I kept wondering how many of the husbands were there willingly.  I know that it will take a lot of practice before we master the dance we learned last night, I have forgotten the name of it already.  How sad is that?  Any way, we all had a good time and then headed over to get drinks afterwards.  I think my husband enjoyed that a bit more.  Next week we will be learning the ChaCha...I will let you know how it goes.

On another note, a while back I embroidered a rose on a linen napkin.  It took me a while, but I finally decided to sew it on to the front of a pillow.  I used a solid fabric on the front and strips of pinks and reds for the back of the pillow.


  1. Great way to use the napkin. Very pretty, both sides.

  2. Your pillow looks so pretty. I love the linen look.

    We did the dance lessons a few years ago, but we did the dinner and drinks before class!!!!!
