Thank you Barbara Wildon!

I've met so many sweet ladies from my blog and from Yahoo stitching groups. I saw on Barbara's blog this Halloween design that I fell in love with and asked if she'd like to sell/trade it; well this sweet lady sent me an e-mail and said that if I send her my address I may get a surprise in the mail. Well, today I did!! She sent me the design in a nice plastic cover.

Thank you so very much Barbara; now maybe you'll be just as blessed as I have been :). I should be packing and sorting thru things; but I'm looking at blogs and am going to stitch and finish my Blackbird Design stocking. I want to stitch some more halloween designs. :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Sorry I've been MIA! LOL

Hi, well a lot has been going on since my last post. Ashley and Scarlett are starting to move in. My son in law (Torry) left for Missouri for basic training and the girls are going to stay with me while he's away. There's the cutiest cottage across the street that came up for rent; so we walked over and looked at it and I fell in love. It'll be tight while the girls are with me but when they leave; it'll be perfect for me (and Kenny when he comes back). So, she's moving out of her house; putting her things in storage and I'm packing up this place and planning on moving next weekend across the street. LOL I'll post pictures when I'm done.

I'm still stitching on my fall stocking that I was suppose to mail out the 20th. LOL I got in touch with the lady and she fully understands; I do want to get it out this week; I need to go to Hobby Lobby and get some beads to finish it. I'll do that tomorrow when I get off work. Hobby Lobby is close to my job. I don't feel like going out tonight. When I was stitching a few nights ago; Scarlett fell asleep on my lap. I had to post a picture for you all to see Grandma stitching. LOL The shirt is Kenny's; I wouldn't buy a cami shirt. LOL

Hope everyone is doing well and hopefully your weather is changing to fall. It's still kind of hot around here; but suppose to cool off this weekend.

Things are looking up!!!

Kenny has called me at least 7 times today. :) I think he'll be back in March; he's going to work for a friend in Oregon over the winter. There aren't many good paying jobs around here.

There's this beautiful house across the street that has a little cottage that sits back from the street; when Kenny was here he made friends with the guy; I called him today (the guy, Nathan) and asked about it; he said it was a 1 bedroom newly remodeled home built in 1908; but he had just totally redecorated the whole inside; new wiring and it has the original hardwood floor he had professionally refinished; I told him I wanted to look at it; so when he got home from work he called me and me and Ashley and Scarlett walked over to see it; and I fell in love. It's beautiful! He rented it to me right there on the spot. He was asking $550 for it; but said he'd give it to me for $500. Which is what I pay for this duplex; where I listen to the young people up stairs walking above me and their big dogs barking at all hours. I'm excited; it's so pretty; I'll take pictures when I get it all decorated.

I think I'll go stitch a little. :)
