Finally, some progress!!

Well, it's been a while, but I'm finally back!!  Just a few more days before I choose for the giveaway...any other takers?  It's not too late to sign up!

I've been pretty busy lately.  We've been working on getting a used car for our son.  The transmission went in the old Honda Civic and it wasn't worth we found a little Nissan Sentra, but we are having some issues getting it registered.  I hope they work out the kinks soon, I'm tired of being stranded!!  LOL

I have been able to put a few stitches in here and there.  Today I spent catching up on two SALs I'm working on.  First is Mary's Sampler II that is being offered on Plum Street Samplers blog.  I love that it comes in small installments that you can work up in an hour or so!  I'm working this on 32 count over one but have some black fabric that I hope to make it again on 36 over two.  The next installment should be out next Sunday.

The second is The Way to Happiness being offered on this blog.  I don't know when the next installment is being posted, but this last one was posted on the first of the month.  I love the saying!!

The third is going to be a Christmas gift for one of three daughters in a family.  The love the Disney princesses so I decided to give them the Snow White piece I had made in '95, this Sleeping Beauty that I am working on now, and a Cinderella piece I hope to start soon.  Hopefully I'll get them done and framed by Christmas.  Wish me luck!!

We had a little visitor to our back door.  I've never seen frogs climb windows before, and just had to take a picture.  I tried to get him to say "cheese" but he would only say "rippit, rippit" !!  LOL

The last visitor to DJ's Digs brought along her own treats!!  Pumpkin donuts...and my were they good!!  Freshly baked, they made my whole house smell delicious!!  I'm not a very good guest as I rarely take such goodies to her house...I'm surprised she keeps inviting me back!  LOL  Can't you just smell the pumpkin?

Since it's still October, I just have to remind you to get your breast exams!  It was never my favorite thing to do, but so glad I did when I found my breast cancer early.  Those who love you will thank you!!   

See you next posting!  *Hugs*

Pumpkin donuts are awesome.

And I love frogs, as long as they aren't the stitching variety.

Those pumpkin donuts look delicious! I like your Disney project and sure the girls will like them too. I've seen a lot of blogs posting their progress on Mary's sampler - seems to be very popular. Good project for the holidays.
