I've been MIA. I apologize. I was going to be visiting with you this weekend but I stayed home and immersed myself in the Olympics. [Woo hooo! Congrats volleyball! Ok, anyone else watch team handball and not get it? I mean my uncle played handball and it wasn't anything like that. I never checked-- did Iceland prevail?] Then I was certainly going to be with you Monday but I ended up being thoroughly stymied researching Chilean theme parks. [For the record, apparently there aren't many. And if you know of one/some, let me know!]
All that aside, here I am everso briefly to say hi and share a finish or two --
Drum roll please......
Yes she's done with all her little beads!
BTW, I'm planning on picketing Mill Hill someday. I believe we should all support legislation require MH to make beads that fit over a size 28 needle. I mean, it's not like beading needles are threadable. My powwow beads almost always fit over a 28. If they can do it so can Mill Hill!!!! I believe that usable beads are an inalienable human right. Aside from my pending protest action I am quite proud of myself. I FINISHED a MIRABILIA! hee heee I'm feeling quite smug.
I also completed or nearly completed a couple ornies --
Oh and I completed replacement squares for Tuula in Fair and Square. She never got her squares from her partner in round 7 so I hopped in when Vonna asked. Now, I can't show the squares to you for 2 very good reasons. First, Tuula doesn't have them yet. Second, lame ole me forgot to take a picture before I sent them. I know, I know. I take pictures of darn near anything that doesn't actively jog away from me and yet I missed those squares. Sigh. I'm lame.
Aside from stitching and working, I've been very, very bad. Not only did I go buy MORE BOOKS last night --
But I bought my ticket to the Cross Stitch Pals Fall Fling!!!! It really is great fun so if you are thinking about needing a stitching retreat this one is darn affordable and the folks are really, really fun. Annnnd I think Chris and I still have space left in our house. You'd be able to meet Amy and Mel and Moniquee and a bunch more goofy ladies! Awww come on. You'll have fun! For the record, I signed up only for the ornie finishing class. Chris however is taking them all I think. lol It's a real role reversal for us. Usually I'm in every class and she's footloose and fancy free.
I leave you with this shot that makes me giggle. I caught this in a parking garage --
Oh come on! Noah's AC. lol
