Stitching update

I am still working on Stephanie's gift. School ends this week. Elena graduates from 8th grade. So her last day of school is Tuesday. She has Wed. off so that is the day we go to the dentist and her friend's birthday party. Thursday is her graduation at 7 pm. Friday the couch is delivered. A new one! Saturday? I house sit.

So that is what is coming up for me this week. A while back Stephanie mentioned that she wanted to join me for a little lunch or something so that we can celebrate our own personal milestone that the school year is finally over with. Although something tells me it is not completely over with. The story is too long to post here. Has to do with a gift to the school from the 8th grade class.

As for the stitching update, I am almost finished with my current project. The thank you gift. I will post a finish soon. I have about 4 more hours or less of work on it. I cannot stitch for more then 1 to 2 hours. Last night my eyes hurt. So I had to stop.

I will post more as I finish it.

Hobby Insanity

Here it is the 18th of May. I haven't posted since the 15th of April. The time has flown by so fast. So here is another time to post. A lot has happened in a month.

My aunt left. She did really well. She really enjoyed the city for what we showed her. We took her shopping, took her to lunch, she stayed for my daughter's confirmation and we celebrated her birthday here. She said she had never had birthday cake to celebrate her birthday for years. So I was glad I was able to do that for her.

As for the heading of this post, I have grown an interest into knitting and crochet. Crochet is something I tried in the past. Knitting is new! I already have the things to crochet. But, I did spend like 10 bucks on knitting needles and yarn. I found a buy at Walmart and bought a knitting book. I haven't really learned much. I asked a lady to show me how. But, I don't think I am one of her favorite people because she never called me to set up a time to knit together.

I am cross stitching. I am working on a thank you gift for the other room mom. Shhhh. It is a surprise for her. I have to finish it! I only have like another week to do it! This week flew by. After that I want to do a Precious Moments project. This lady, Alisha, I met online sent me 4 PM books with nothing but patterns in them. So I intend to stitch one up here soon. Just have to choose a pattern.

I could go on but I think this is enough. A few last minute things!

1. I want to stitch the thank you project for Stephanie and then do a PM piece. So those are immediate stitching goals. Oh, I never finished Winnie. I ran out of floss and Janlynn says they may not have the color. The kit is over 10 years old so what do I expect.

2. I still love the Rockies in spite of the fact that they aren't winning! They are a great team. But, for some reason, like PITCHING, they are losing.

3. School ends soon. I am volunteering to pay off the tuition for a non profit organization. Not work as in a real job!!!! Just volunteering. I work the major sports events. Hard work involved there.

4. Summer weather has arrived in town.

I will post soon with updates on everything.
