TUSAL and why the glass is so empty

My poor TUSAL glass is so very empty this time. There are a few threads from my Mirabilia reindeer and not much else.

And here is why the jar is so empty.



San Diego Wild Animal Park

Our youngest son, DIL and two grandsons were here for a two week visit. We had the time of our lives. We laughed and played and cuddled and hugged. It was a very special time for all of us.

And here is my progress on the Mirabilia RR to this point.

 I am stitching "Comet".
And this is what the RR looks like so far.

I have to get my needle smoking. This RR is to be back in the mail by April 9th and I still have many stitches to do.

I also received my UFO RR back this past week.
Here is where it was when I sent it out.

Here is the RR when I received it back.

There were some issues with this RR. I must say I was hoping to have a bit more done on it. It will have to go to the bottom of my WIP drawer until I have time to work on it.

Well, that's it for this posting. I am off to stitch more reindeer.
Until then, I hope the frogs are off having a great time and leaving you all alone.

Looks like you've had tons of fun :)

Oh, I love the Reindeer RR. It looks so pretty. Can't wait to see more of Comet.

Whew, for a second I thought you'd had a hoard of frog visits but vacation lack of ORTs is much, much better!

Cool Round Robins. I like your Christmas one ~ it's too bad more wasn't accomplished on it.

I'm glad you had so much fun with your grandsons - they must have been thrilled with their visit with you. The reindeer RR is going to be gorgeous.

Your GSs faces in the ride pictures are PRICELESS! Like your progress on the RRs. If you need an extra pair of hands on your UFO RR, I could do a block for you.

Just found your blog through Daffycat.s blog.

Your RR look lovely.

Lovely photos - looks like great fun.

Well, you have had the bestest reason ever for not stitching! I am so glad that you had a wonderful time. Both RRs looking really neat. Sorry you had problems with the ornament one.

Cheryl said...

Oh wow, busy times! Love the family pics. Caleb would love those places!!

Lynn said...

Sounds like a pretty good reason for not stitching to me!! I'm so glad everyone had such an awesome time. Bet you're tired though!
The reindeer RR will be a lovely one. I have several of those charts and they're amazing.
Too bad you didn't get as much stitching completed on your Christmas RR as you'd hoped.

Carol said...

Such wonderful memories for your family, Kathy! I'm surprised you have managed to get any stitching done at all with all those fun activities!

Margaret said...

What a fun time with your precious Canadians.

Boy you sure having been making up for lost time since they left. Great progress on the RRs.

Holey shamoley, I can't imagine doing those reindeer as a RR!!!! It took me a whole year to do one of them! You are a brave woman. =)

Mangogirl said...

looks like your visit was a success. I love the stitching :D

Dani - tkdchick said...

Oh Kathy it looks like you all had a fantastic time togehter! No wonder you got in so few stitches!

I do look forward to you coming home!

I'd be happy to put a block in on your UFO RR piece at some point!

Von said...

Good times with the family takes precedence over all!!! So glad you had so much fun. :)
