Pueblo Quilt & Stitch Expo..

I've gone to the Pueblo Quilt & Stitch Expo for prob 8 years now; I don't know why they call it "Stitch" there isn't ever any Cross Stitch booths there; and I don't quilt (yet), but I still enjoy walking around and looking at the beautiful quilts. This year I bought a Pattern to make some halloween decorations; I"m going to give it a try; and two things of buttons; it was fun picking out the ones I wanted, that lady prob thought I was crazy; there was a huge bin and you could fill a small bag for $3, I hand picked everyone. LOL Then they had prepackaged ones, I picked up one of those also. I'm going to use the buttons for my finishing on my cross stitch pillows. And I picked up 3 fat quarters of material for finishing.

It's 4:15 a.m. now; I woke and let the dogs out; Scarlett woke so I changed her and gave her a bottle, she went back to sleep; which is where I need to go since I have to work a double tomorrow; I'm just not tired; I went to bed around 10 last night; I've been so tired lately? I may make myself a Dr. Appt. to get a check up soon. I have a dentist Appt. the 15th and man do I HATE going to the dentist; I have to have their 1st appointment of the day otherwise I"ll find some reason to cancel. LOL Not much on the stitching; I have lost my stitching mojo; it'll come back I"m sure. :)

I finially got my order from Stitching Bits and Bobs; it took about 2 weeks; I guess one of the charts were on backorder. She had a sale, the threads were on sale for $1.60 so I went thru my Stitchers Journal and ordered all the threads it calls for that I don't have. Plus a few other ones I liked. She's still having a sale; so maybe I'll go thru some of my charts and see what I can come up with. I know when Ash goes to Germany I won't have the extra money to order a lot of stash; so I"m going to take advantage of it while I can; and then when they do leave I'll have plenty to keep me busy. :)

I was suppose to be off work today; but my friend Desi called and asked if I would work for her; she's really sick w/that cold/flu I had, so I went in for a few hours, came home and warmed up my grandma's spaghetti I made for supper last night for supper tonight; it's always better the 2nd day. I gave Scarlett some; she loved it as you can see in the picture. LOL Then we went to Dairy Queen and got chocolate ice cream cones. :)

Ash bought a Wii, and we've been having a blast with it; I beat her shooting basketball hoops; but she beats me bowling; we play almost every night. I haven't been stitching much; still working on the rose for my mom; getting bored working w/one colour. But it's sure gonna be pretty; she's gonna love it. I'm off work tomorrow I think I'm gonna do something out of the Stitcher's Journal. I love that book....
