Wow, this past week has been something else!! Not only on the stitching front, but on various activities as well. First, I will update Isabella for you and I am not as far as expected:
What for you ask? To start the over 1 on Rosina.
So, I restitched it, and it took almost all of my time to stitch it, rip it out (over 1 on 45ct--full cross) and then restitch it, and added a few other words. I am not as scared as I was last week about stitching the over one-- something finally clicked and it isnt as hard as I thought. I am actually looking forward to stitching it and getting her done!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!
Onto the other fun stuff!!!!! How many of you have ever been to an auction? I mean, not at a large NY auction house, where things are through the roof and out of most of our pay grades?!!!!! Well, we went to one and WOW was it sooo much fun. The amount of things up for auction consisted of anywhere from furniture- all makes and models, tools, old toys, pictures, rugs, glassware, etc., etc., etc and things were CHEAP! I picked up a few things, and 1 being a pair of old wooden spindles for 3 bucks. 3 bucks!!!! I think that the most expensive item sold over the 5 hours was $280 bucks for a old display case-- including original rippled glass. What a deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had so much fun, we are looking forward to another auction real soon :)
A celebration was had this week, with my grandfather turning 90. Unbelievable right? I was thrilled to be able to go to the party and help with cake, cookies and almond treats. See why this week has been sooooo naughty?!!! LOL. I got some great pics and video of my grandfather, cousins, aunts and uncles. Grandma was telling us that she made 2 cakes the previous day, put them outside on the back porch and to her dismay, the squirrels had thought the party started early :(. So she made 2 more!!!! She most certainly doesnt need the practice, but I am sure she wasnt amused!!!!!
Looks like alot of progress has been made with the January WIPs and inspiration has been going strong. Looking forward more updates this week!!!!!!!!
