Hello one and all. Another week has flown by and how many in one day?
3 to be exact!! My mother turned 75 on September 12. My parents were married on her birthday and celebrated 58 years
and my sister married the same date and they celebrated 28.
Jeez, that makes for a lot of celebrating in one day. We were 18 for dinner out and birthday cake.
The next day Hunter turned 3. We had 26 for hotdogs and burgers and a pirate theme. It was great fun but now I am tired.
I managed to get a snap of Drew and I together. Her purple is still going strong while mine is fading.
Leo was in Ottawa to see our Jackson start school this week.
It was a great day for him and he could hardly wait but we were a little sad. His babyhood is definitely behind him now. Leo says he got on the bus, didn't wave or even look back. He is so ready for school.
I did not put in a single stitch this week but I have a couple of finishes to show you from the week before.
Here is Baby Shoes Sampler finished and framed.
Here is Charlie's Ark Sampler finished and framed.
I completed 2 Friendship RR hearts.
Here is Carolyn's and Marian's.
Oh, and I fell off the no buying wagon in a big way. Here is my latest purchase!! This is Chatelaine's Desert Landscape Mandala.
I love love love this piece. It so reminds me of Arizona and all I love about it and the desert.
My birthday was in early August but with other issues it just kind of slipped by. I did receive a couple of stitchy birthday gifts that deserve a mention.
From my BFF Beatrice some lovely fall threads and some fabric.
From the SBBC my partner was Ulla from Finland and here are the lovely gifts she sent.
I am busily working away on a Swedish weaving afghan for a wedding on Oct. 3. I started it last Saturday and am about 2/3 done. No stitching until this one is completed. Wish me luck as I want to put this down and stitch but know I can't.
Till next time - stitch for me lol.
