A New Start
Here is the start of Stealing Oats. I think it is so cute. I love the Britter animals and they are very easy to do. The cat isn't in the picture yet but will be eventually. Now I have the mane done the horse is going quicker. It took forever to do the mane. I'm still working on The Caretaker, but sometimes need a break from it.
I finally heard the Valdani Thread arrived to 123 stitch and they have shipped it to me with the rest of the thread I ordered. I can't wait to get it and get back to Winter Silhouette. I'll have 3 in my rotation. I'm typically a one at a time stitcher. I read on someone's blog on the large pieces like the ones by HAED and Mystic Stitch, etc they count each page as a project so I think I'll do that too. Hey it'll get me to 25 faster.
Last night Adventure Club started at our church. We didn't have very many kids show up, I think the lowest start ever. Once it progresses we get more kids. My little great nephew, Ashton, and 2 of his cousins were there. Ashton was so cute. I came down the stairs just as he was registering and said "Hi Ashton" he looked surprised, then covered his mouth and started giggling. He and his little cousin Mc Kenzie did great. I wish I could say the same for Kaily who is 8. She did fine until she saw her Grandma, then she was whining and crying the rest of the night. She's in my class and honestly did fine, Then when it was tme for games she grabbed my hand and was crying. Granted she is very shy and is definitely her grandma's girl. So Wendy just took her from there. (Wendy is my brother's fiancee). We really like her a lot.
Tomorrow I'll be spending the day with my mom unless it rains. Dad is going golfing. They are taking care of my brother's dog as Tim and Wendy are going up north for the weekend. (Crummy weekend to go up to the cottage but they are). It's just been cold here and really looks like it may rain. Since mom is so unsteady on her feet we'd feel better if I went there to walk the dog etc. I'll do my washing while I'm there, this time I can do it for free won't need quarters there!. I'll take this piece since it is an easy piece to do. But I'm sure we'll work a puzzle. I love doing puzzles. It's just I can't do them here Whiskers won't let me. Neither did my previous cat. Speaking of Whiskers, he is going t be 16 10 days from now! I can't believe it.
Well, I better go do my dishes, until next time Happy Stitching!
