Busy, Busy

Once again my camera is out of commission and it may be awhile before we can do anything about it this time. I feel lost without it and hope to have it snapping away again very soon. Until then, I will be sharing some older photos on my blog.

I have been steadily working on The Sparrow but am not quite as far along as I had hoped because I spent one day frogging a small section. I won't say which one. I will just let you see if you can find it when I am able to post an update picture! I am happy to announce that I just started on section 4 last night! That means I am on the home stretch!

I need to get my pen and paper back out so that I can resume making my "things to do" list. Maybe not having the list to fall back on has been one big reason my days have felt so off lately.

One list I have been working on is the pieces I would like to finish up by the end of the year. With the holidays coming up, I don't want to be too hard on myself so I am keeping them lean but mean! I am doing pretty good on my promise to not go crazy buying stash but every now and then I see a design that just begs to be added to the stash and I have already seen several market sneak peeks that will definitely find a home in my growing stash.

I haven't had very much time for the computer or my blog lately because of one thing or another and I don't see any signs of my beloved dull life returning any time soon. Hopefully within the next month or so. Harold decided he wanted a late birthday gift. Two German Chocolate cakes! One for home and one to take to work. The cake for home was gone within a day and he came home from work with an empty cake carrier. I told him that I was guessing but the guys either liked the cake or gagged on it and tossed it in the trash. He said they loved it and gobbled it up in no time.

All of sudden, out of the clear blue and with no warning our dryer died. It had been just fine the day before and suddenly it just decided enough was enough and fizzled out. What a rough week, running back and forth to the laundrymat but we now have a new dryer that I hope will last for a very very long time!

Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart! Thanks so much for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits and comments.

Up and Running

September has arrived! For some reason the other months can drag by but the months from September on through to December just fly by! There just always seems to be so much more going on to keep us busy and I love the Fall weather.

I really got behind on my blog and hope to catch up on alot of reading during the next week!

DH took a week of vacation. I prefer September vacations but his work is having a special job then and he can't be off during the month. Oh well, he snuck the first few days of September into his vacation which included our 34th anniversary and his birthday! Wow, 34 years of marriage to the same guy! Hmmm, I guess I like him enough to keep him! lol. I wish I had some dreamy and exciting vacation photos to share of some faraway spot but we stayed home and prepped the outside of the house for painting along with a few other mundane chores we had been putting off. I just like to have him home and I am already looking forward to his next vacation time! A late summer cold kept me out of whack for awhile but I feel up and running again.

I have finished Section Two on The Sparrow and am working on Section Three! Even though I took several days off from my stitching, I still feel it's moving right along! Next in line will be Tall Pines by LHN and personalized for my Grandpa. I hope to share a sneak peak of my progress on The Sparrow very soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits always brighten my day! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
