Off to the fair & a finish...

Evening sweet ladies; I hope everyone is doing well and staying cool. I was off work today and shame on me; I was suppose to go to the dentist and I cancelled, I'm deathly afraid of the dentist and it takes a lot for me to go and well, nothings hurting..lol so I didn't go. I feel bad now; but I spent the day finishing a few ornaments and just didn't want to stop, I know thats a poor excuse, I'll call and reschedule tomorrow I do have a couple teeth that need fillings and I don't want them to get worse.

Here's my Mystery Sampler all framed and off to the Colorado State Fair tomorrow; I am also entering the Peppermint ornament, I like the other one also but it's a little crooked and I don't really care for the bow at the top; I'll prob end up redoing it. I made a huge mess just making these two ornaments..lol earlier today I was going to stitch and "Baby" was sleeping in my stitching chair so I just let her sleep. I did finish Simple Joys night before last; it was such a fun design to stitch, I'm going to get it framed and hang in our bedroom. Now I'm finishing a fob I started a while ago and then I'm going to stitch on my Lizzie Kates Halloween Mystery Sampler. I'm trying to get some of these WIPS done along with the new things. :)

Last night I hope everyone felt "safe", Kenny and Hayden were "saving the world" playing some game together..lol their taking my things to the fairgrounds tomorrow; I have to work. Yesterday I had a Dr. appt, I've lost 8 lbs and have about 30 to go, I've just cut pop out, I use to drink sprite all day at work, but I've been drinking water or Crystal Light and it's starting to pay off. Plus me and Kenny are walking at night, we take the 2 dogs with us. . Wish me luck at the fair; I'm nervous and excited; I've won blue ribbons at a County fair but I've never entered in the Colorado State Fair before. Judging is the 10th and the fair isn't until the 25th thru the 5th. I'll be heart broken if I don't get something. LOL Night dear friends..
