Quilt show..

Well, I went to the "Quilt & Needlework Expo" this morning and there was NO Cross Stitch at all....:( I was so disappointed. I found some fat 1/4s of some cute material I will use in "finishing" (someday)..LOL and this bat ric rack was too cute to pass up; I can see it on a Halloween pin keep...:)

There was some beautiful quilts hanging on the walls; I wish I could quilt but I couldn't afford to quilt and stitch; those ladies who were shopping was spending a LOT of money; one lady in front of me spend $187 on material; then came me; with one fat 1/4 for $ then I bought 4 more at another booth for $1.95 and the bat trim was only $2.75; I would have bought more of that but it was the last one.

Kenny has to work til 6 then were going out to dinner; we try to make Saturday nights our "date night"; we go out to dinner and sometimes to a movie. I went out and picked some of my lilacs and have in a few vases; our home smells great..:) I think I'm gonna go stitch on my model picture; I really hope to get this done and mailed on Wednesday; I am fighting the urge to stitch myself

I can't believe I haven't posted in a while; I've been stitching on the model sampler for Renee so I don't have any stitching to share right now. I'm trying to get it finished and mailed out by Wednesday; I want to stitch something for me; but want to get this out in the mail first. It's really pretty and I know all of you will love it when I'm able to share. I have her pay me in stash...:) (Stitcher's Closet) so it's a "win/win"

Here's a few pictures of Miss. Scarlett. I can't believe she's getting so darn big; I miss her more than I can say; but we do Skype 4-5 days a week; so that does help a lot; I don't know if I could make it without Skype. In this picture of her eatting at her little table she looks like she's saying "don't take my picture when I'm eatting"..LOL She's quite the charactor and keeps Ashley on her toes.

I hope everyone is getting lots of stitching in and everyone is well. I'm going to the Pueblo Quilt & Needlework Expo tomorrow and I can't wait; even thou I don't quilt I love to look and I pick up some material and buttons. I'll take pictures to share with you all. Have a great weekend...
