Just a quick post to let you know I'm still alive. LOL. I worked most of the weekend then spent yesterday with Steve. It was the first day in quite awhile that was just us. So I took full advantage of it. OK I snuck away and charted my American Eagle cross stitch chart while he napped. Then we had a small picnic with my parents last evening and celebrated my Mom's birthday. Since I haven't talked to you in awhile I started a new design. I'm not sure where this one will go, but so far I really like it. I have also made the decision after some friendly nudging to sell it when it's done. Yes, you heard me I'm going to start selling some of my stitcheries. I will also be making this chart available when it's finished also. I had a request today from a Facebook friend to please make it available even though it's not done yet. I had already started to chart it so that if I ever decide to stitch it again I would have it. So, easy peasy to make it into a pattern.
So far this is what it looks like...
I finally got my free motion quilting foot for my sewing machine too. I've been playing with that and am having an awful time with my tension. grrrr.... So, I may just do straight lines on my Americana quilt until I get this figured out. My quilt has been sitting on my sewing table and it's driving me crazy. As if I wasn't already there. lol. I need to finish it up.
My daughter was done with school last Friday and my son is done this Thursday. It's still mind blowing that my daughter will be a senior. Where did time go? I'm now thinking about senior pictures, graduation announcements, prom, and graduation party.... uuuggghhh. My son will be in 8th grade and turning thirteen so at least I'll have a little reprieve before he graduates. However, I'm realizing he's not my little boy anymore. :' ( He's becoming a "man." Boy do I hate puberty!!!!! lol.
I will check in later this week as I work again tomorrow then off for 4 days. Then maybe I'll have some fun stuff to share other than my $.99 Longaberger basket I found at Goodwill! You heard me right! It was the deal of the week. :-)
