Well I probably sound like a broken record, but it's been another busy week. First I received a package in the mail with all sorts of goodies in it. I had won second place in the Wet Noodle award from Friendly Stitchers Yahoo group. What fun!! I hope you can see all the goodies that were packed in that package! Thanks so much ladies, I am itching to use each and every item!!
In the same package was a gift from Miss Mouse. She stitched this piece for this box and finished the inside as well. I'm such a boxoholic, she really knew what I would like and it's just beautiful. Thanks so much, Miss Mouse, this means a lot to me!!
I received a postcard in the mail a week ago yesterday about a NeedleArt exhibit at Montpelier Mansion in November, and the entries have to be checked in tomorrow or Monday. So....I thought it might showcase my place of employment (Frames Galore) if I submitted some entries...and I texted my boss to ask him if it was doable. He agreed and so we ordered the supplies and I was out until 10 PM last night getting the final touches on the projects. Whew!! Now I just have to fill out the paperwork and I'll be ready for tomorrow. Wish me luck!!
Here are some pictures (not too spectacular but at least you can sort of see what we've done) of what will be my entries.

The exhibit runs from November 4th to November 27th if you are interested and they do charge a modest fee to enter, but it's worth it to see Montpelier Mansion, it's a lovely place!
It's snowing here today, and I'm really feeling the chill. DS got tickets to see a TV show being taped this morning called "It's Academic" where high schools in the area compete on a quiz show. His school was one of the groups this morning, and though they gave a valiant effort, they came in second out of three. It was a close game the whole way through, and all the students that participated should be commended. It was a fun morning. We found our way to "TV hill" which is one of the highest points in Baltimore, and it had begun sleeting there this morning, and as we walked through the parking lot, we heard a loud "thump". A few feet in front of us was a huge clump of snow and ice that had fallen off the very high towers that are situated up there for the TV station. I think if it would have hit one of us it would have been a bit painful!! Honestly, it missed us by |----| that much!! LOL
Off to take a much needed nap. Wish me luck at the exhibit, it's exciting to say the least! *Hugs*
