I finished stitching the 40 leaves last night and pulled out Part 3 and what do I find??? Yes, more darn LEAVES!! Only a few more though..lol I ordered some Wisper thread this morning from Mary Janes to stitch the sheep with; I love how they look stitched w/Wisper thread; I had a little left from a Bent Creek kit I had and stitched a ornament & used the Wisper thread for the sheep on it. I think I may have to start something for the 4th of July later today. I finished my June Cottage; I also ordered some tiny black beads; I think I'm going to stitch those on the strawberries instead of the french knots..

My nephew Tyler and his girlfriend Jenna graduated from Ohio State this past weekend; I hate living far away from family and missing important events. He's now a 2nd Lt. In the U.S. Air Force; he's going to be a navigator on bomber planes and is doing some of his training here in Pueblo, Colorado in July for 3 months...:) I'm so excited he'll be here when the state fair is here..

Kenny lost his job last week; so now he's out job hunting with 10000+ other people, I'm mad at him for getting fired; he was a phone rep and got in a argument with another phone rep that called him and they let him go; he'd missed some work due to medical issues and they couldn't let him go for that, so I think they were just looking for a reason to fire him; so I guess my stash shopping will be cut back some for a while. :( Don't know how were gonna make it on my waitressing job; but we'll just have to wait and see what happens. Life always throws us a curve once in a while huh?

Todays my only day off this week; I picked up some extra shifts and I don't feel like doing much at all except stitch. Here is a little stash I'd ordered before I knew he lost his job..on the bright side I won a giveaway over at Granny Traces Scrapes & Squares and I recieved my prize today in the mail...I won some beautiful felt strawberries Trace made that are beautiful; she has it packaged so cute I don't want to open it..lol she included some buttons and some recipe cards..thank you so much hun...I'm going to get a mason jar and put my strawberries and thread spools you sent me..I'll post a picture when I get it all done..I also had ordered a cute scissor fob from Strawberry Lane, I got it today also..she did a wonderful job. Hope everyone has a wonderful day and gets some stitching time in..

Sharee I am sorry Kenny lost his job! We live a tight life here on just my husband's salary, which is not large. I feel for you. But you make do. That's just the way it is. Enjoy the new stash then. That is why I NEVER have new stash, can't afford it.
