Here's the latest news...

Hello all! :)

Just this past week, I have two small finishes to happy dance about. One is Hinzeit's "Racing" mini-block and will be for one of Cody's Christmas gifts. He's 11 and will love it. I had purchased the matching Kay's Frame for it and it's now at the framer's. (I know, I could've framed this myself. Call me lazy. Hah!) The second finish is a Pine Mountain pillow kit called "Thoughts of Mother" and is for my mother as part of her Christmas.

No pictures for now, but soon! It might be a week or two before I get pictures posted. I gotta get through finals first. (ewwwwwww!)

This has been a great evening. I stitched for a little while on the Mill Hill kit called "On the Range", munched on walnuts, and drank some bottled water. I've got some homework and studying to do, but we have a winter storm coming this weekend. Looks like we might get iced in Monday and possibly Tuesday, too, so I'll get all of my homework completed anyway just in case. That will basically leave my time free to stitch if/when we do get iced in. Woo hoo! I'm ready -- we have plenty of food, firewood, and stitching stash. What else would I need? *big, huge grin*

Finals are 12/14, 12/17, and 12/19. After that, I'm out of school until January 14th. YES!!!! I am soooooooooo ready for the break. I'll be working a lot during the break to get the shop's taxes done and get caught up on some things, but you know I'll be a stitching fool during that time, too. :-)))))

I'm trying really, really, really, really, really hard to not start any new projects this weekend. Something tells me that I won't be successful. "Oh Beautiful" by Shepherd's Bush is calling my name. But, then again, so are a ton of other projects -- any of the Tall Guys, a few Hinzeit patterns, several other Shepherd's Bush kits, and so much more. *sigh* I'd better not die before I'm 185 years old or else I might not be able to get all of my stash stitched up.

Guess I'll sign off for now. Hope everyone is doing great and that the frog stays away from your stitching. :D

Sounds like you had a blast. Wish I could have an evening of uninterrupted stitching.
