Hey there! I am back home now and actually didn't have to spend the night at an airport! Given my last two trips, I am super happy about that!
Here is a new picture of Santa. He is almost finished. This week I will stitch in the black bird and start filling in the crazy fur trim around his coat. I have still not come up with a finisher for him so any and all suggestions are appreciated:)
Today the two college kids started back to school. I had a good laugh when my freshman called me in a panic to say he could not find his classroom let alone the building it was supposed to be in! I assurred him that there was a building there somewhere with his class in it. He just needed to breath and look at the map calmly. Sure enough, about 3 minutes later he called me back to say he had located the building and he was now ok. I just knew they didn't assign aclass in a fictitious building just to torment in coming freshman, but if they did I might just understand! LOL!
Not really much going on this week, FINALLY! I think both my hubby and I are ready for some quiet time. The last couple of months have just been crazy and non-stop going. I am also super excited to have fall right around the corner. I am not much of a summer person, too hot and hectic! I do love fall. Not to mention I have a serious turkey and pumpkin fetish! I know, weird right?! As soon as Santa is finished I have a Prairie Schooler sampler in mind for a quick stitch. Then, there is the quilt to get back to. I am converting Demitri's bedroom into a sewing room. He is moving out in two weeks and we don't need anymore extra bedrooms so I am claiming his as a sewing room. I have been looking into sewing machine cabinets but haven't decided on one yet. If anyone has owned one that they either loved or hated I would appreciate the feedback. I am looking at Koala cabinets but can't seem to find a local shop with one that I could actually go and look at. So I may end up just taking a leap of faith and ordering one in sight unseen.
Well I think that covers it for now. Until next time, TTFN!
