Hotels are booked ... !

The girls, my Mom and I are heading to Spokane on Saturday. Yay! There is a completely excellent needlework store  Haberdashery Needlework Shop. I am making my list already:) - This is an annual trip that is going on three years. The girls are very patient with the needlework shop as it equates to them shop shop shopping.  Maggie didn't come with us last year so she will be making up for lost time.

Emma has been in an acting camp this past week and next. They are doing a Broadway musical review. I dropped in early for pick up and it sounds fabulous! The performance is Friday. She has come down with a rotten cold... stunning isn't she :)
Here's the latest ornament  - it's the French Country Star from the 2010 JCS Ornament Issue. I have done this one before and gave it away. I may keep this one. I will see how it turns out.

My half and full marathon training started this week and I am liking it so far. Of course it has finally gotten hot here so it won't be as pleasant to train in the heat but I will make it thru lol.

Not much else to report...

Until next time...

Long time no post...

It's been a long time in posting and I am sorry for that. When I think back to the past six months I am glad to be moving forward.

My Uncle died early Friday morning. He was 85. He was a funny and clever man who I will miss, I have great memories of him.


On the health front I am good. I had a series of migraines last week and very happy to report they were due to weather and nothing else. I am starting my half and full marathon training this week! SO excited to start running again. I am going slow and steady. Only I would look forward to the actual training.

On the stitching front... I have finished a few things. This is the latest ornament. I worked on it during Ben's martial arts class. It was a quick stitch and I can not tell you the fabric or the thread as I just grabbed it out of my stash.

This moose is a freebie pattern my Mom found on the web. It is my at work project. It took me quite a while as I worked on it done my breaks at work. I don't usually take my break they are kind of an off floor work time... but this does actually show that I have been taking some time for myself at work.

It's kind of a sad representation of what I have been working on lately but it is better than nothing. Emma and I drove to Bellingham on Friday for a quick overnight trip. We didn't spend a whole lot of money but did a lot of looking. We did go to Jo Ann's Fabric and Crafts. I got some fabulous fabric for Halloween. I could have all the choices but narrowed it down to three. I have no idea what I will use them  for but they are just very cool.

That's all for today. I can't promise my next update will be but I can say there will be one:) I am cleaning out my closet and drawers toady. Phil is doing a small job and then we are both going for a run.

Until next time...

Sunday... YAY!

Today is full of stitching, cooking and resting. I have a project that needs completing and  turkey to cook. It will be a fun day. I want Phil to hang the clothes line in the back garden so I can get some laundry done. I will post later to show the progress on everything. YAY!

Until next time...
