What a day!


I've been informed by my guys that I have an hour to write this post, so I'll get right to it.  After all, Cheeburger, Cheeburger is not just a burger joint and we want time to savor the ambiance before heading to church tonight.  *rolling eyes*  (See, human thesaurus...I can use big words and I know how to spell them too!...see previous post)

Where do I begin?  I guess with the most exciting!  I finally met Denise, a very lovely person I've been e-mailing for the past week or so.  We met up and traveled to Montpelier Mansion to visit the Needleart show.  While we were there, we ran into Danielle and VegasJilly.  They had been to the stitching retreat (which sounds like a blast, I may have to do that next year...we'll see) and knew Denise, so we chit chatted for a bit.  It was really nice meeting all of you today!

I've gotten a few minutes to stitch and have caught up on the Threadbasket SAL, only one more part to go! 

I also finished up on the November owl from the Oakhaven SAL.  Only one more part to go (hm...I sound a little like a broken record there...LOL)


I received the nicest letter from Babs, which my son brought in from the mailbox and didn't tell me.  I happened to stumble across it today.  I'm so sorry I didn't acknowledge it before today, Babs, I hope that doesn't happen again, I LOVE getting mail...don't you?  Such a sweet letter, and as soon as I get a chance, I'll write back.

I've been putting in a few more hours here and there at the store.  I really enjoy working, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day to work, and spend time with family, friends and stitching. The closer we get to Christmas the worse it is going to become.  It leaves me a bit distracted, so don't be surprised if you see a little less of me for a while.  (Now that I've said that I'll probably be posting all the time...LOL  *wink*)

Off to head to dinner.  I can't believe how much I've accomplished today!  Thanks for meeting up with me today Denise, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention this...DS's friend T has been in the ICU for a couple of days now.  It's a long story, but he's slowly improving and still needs your prayers.  They are hoping to get him back to his old room tomorrow, but it's a pretty touchy situation. Please pray for him if you think of it, he's a very sick young man!  Thanks.

What a nice post, I had a great time and thanks for taking me! Now I am just driving myself crazy trying to find those 2 pieces I saw...I hope the girl who stitched them gets back to me and lets me know because I am having no luck!

I'm so glad you had a great time with the girls - sounds like we all need a get-together! I'm more than willing to host a gathering!

Your Threadbasket looks wonderful, just in time for the holidays. Looking at your owls, I really need to work on mine too!

Still praying for T, glad he's improving even if it's slowly.

Looking forward to Monday... hugs!

The Needleart Show certainly was a fun event, wasn't it. And your SALs look gorgeous. They will be wonderful when finished.

Sounds like a fun meetup. Lovely stitching, DJ. Bet I sound like a broken record there too but it's true. Your stitching is gorgeous. Love that little owl. He's so cute!
