Go to for a great giveaway!

Thank you, Thank you!!

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my finishes. I will post again this afternoon with a great fall craft I found on the internets and maybe, MAYBE a few more finishes. Looking forward to a low-key Saturday, capped off with babysitting for the Little Man and Pretty Princess tonight. YEAH!!! Later!

Oh, the finishes!!

Here are some finished finishes - I love how they look on what I think is a mug tree? I found this at the thrift store and it's perfect for holding a few ornaments and really showcasing them. I have another one that only has 3 arms and now I'm on the lookout for more. They are perfect to place on a table for the holidays! I'm trying to get a little more "fancy" with the backs and embellishing them a little bit, so I tried to fussy up some of them with buttons or charms on the back. It's fun looking for just the right thing to go with a design! Here are some pics - hope you like them!!

Finishes! Yeah!!

Well, here are some finishes that I have done lately. Before you start worrying that my children are going hungry and my house is messy (well, that one doesn't count) let me tell you that some of these were finished months ago and I found them in the "to-be-finished" basket or maybe they were half-done and also, I have had alot of time waiting for practices to end, school to get out, stc. There. I've justified. As I finish-finish each one, I will post a pic and I hope to get alot of them done this weekend. And we have started Halloween decorating. I love,love, love Halloween and I usually put the stuff up the 1st of Oct. or right after my birthday on the 27th, but this year I am early because I want to do some crafts that might take some time to finish. Well, I'll post more tomorrow. Taking #2 to the Big City to the airport so he can go south and visit with the Cute Girlfriend. See ya!!

Never Forget

Never forget where you were on this day 9 years ago.
Never forget the gut-wrenching feeling of watching it all unfold live on tv.
Never forget what it felt like to know where your loved ones were and that they were safe.
Never forget that it can happen again.
Today, I am brought to tears when I think of the horrific acts of 9/11. And the heroic acts of our firefighters and rescue workers who ran to the disaster, instead of away. I hope that we never see such a horrible thing happen again. I will be back tomorrow to blog about the silly little things in my life that go one every day. Today, I'm taking time to remember those who perished. Please join me.

Ok, it's a cotton one and a tank under but still a sweater! Yikes. It's 57 here and windy. Really hope this isn't the real deal this early. Please let a few warm days come back! Ok, just thought you should know.
You're welcome.

It's Back!!

School, that is! I love the first day of school, but #5 said this morning, "Oh, do I have to go to school today?" A little early in the year to be skipping!! He's already been playing football for a month now and this Sunday hockey starts. OMG! Stay tuned - this should be interesting!!
Thank you all so much for your comments on my last pitiful post. I truly was down for a little while, but I know that now is not the right time for me to start working full-time right now. If you could see my calendar, you would know what I mean! LOL! Today, I got alot done around the house and I hope to get in some sort of groove so that things can run smoother. More organization and cleaning = more stitching time! Well, must dash for now. Will start blogging more and I might just have a giveaway coming up for my birthday!!
