Home Coming Queen Christina

It's been a few days I know. My mom called a little while ago and said we have a Queen in our family. I thought she meant the dog as she is taking over her place in their house. But my niece was crowned Homecoming Queen of her High School last night after their Basketball Game. Congratulations Christina. Her brother was on the court last year and another niece was on the court a few years ago but she's the first that won. She's cute and personable so we figured she'd get it.
I have been watching a few DVD's and Videos since getting this DVD player. Now to build my DVD collection. Right now I have a borrowed Bill Gaither DVD in. Let Freedom Ring. Everytime I see this one I choke when they sing "A Few Good Men" and the NYC Firefighters come up on stage and get a standing ovation. This video was made shortly after 9-11.
On the stitching front, I did start the Teddy Bear got it about 3/4 of the way done and it went into the garbage! I made a mistake and it would be easier just to start over then to have frogged a whole lot. It's not due until May anyway. So I got out Tower of Eiffel and have it going good. A lot of sky in it but the tower is just coming in. I sort of like that tweeding effect in the tower.

I had to run to the store this morning. We are having a business meeting/potluck after church tomorrow. I'm bringing my 7 layer bars and thought I would make a double batch as they are so popular. Well I went to do the first batch yesterday and the grahm crackers looked very old and almost moldy so thought I better throw them away. My dad took me to the store this am. The first batch is done. I need to wash my dishes and then make the second batch. I'm not too enthused about the way the first batch turned out. Think I had the oven on too high at 375 should have been 350.

Thank you for your comments to Light of Peace. I will work on it off and on.

The snow we didn't have earlier is here now, and looks like it is here to stay. It's snowed a lot and will snow off and on the next few days. We knew winter had to come sometime. Just so it leaves by mid April is all we care.

Well, I better get going here. Until next time. Happy Stitching.

Tower looks like it will be very colorful. Sorry about teddy, that is so hard to have to pitch something, but at some point the frogging isn't worth it.

Your 7 layer bars sound interesting, what all are in them besides Graham Crackers?

Tower of Eiffel looks amazing. Great job. Sorry about the one that ended up in the trash. Hopefully the next go round will be more successful :)

Sorry to hear you had to toss the piece because of a mistake. I've had to do that before, and it is just easier to start over.

I hope your snow is gone by April and that you get some enjoyment from the winter landscape between now and then. Your current project looks great!

This looks wonderful, I can't wait to see more photos. Tower of Eiffel and the park around have a special place in my heart, we went there many times while living in France.
