Thread Keep in The Mail

Here is my thread keep that I completed for my
Thread Holder Exchange. I put it together 2 times
and I think maybe my fabric should have been
a tighter weave. I want to do another one and
see if I have better luck stitching it. This pattern
is from the 2009 series of Floss Keeps from
The Needles Content.

My bathroom is 90% finished. I am so excited.
I took a shower in my newly tiled bathroom. The
potty is in and it works. The sink and faucet are in
and they work. My DH put in the ceiling fan and
the light fixtures. Tomorrow the mirror is hung and I need to buy a few things and we are all set.

School is still going great guns. Need to start planning for the Christmas programs and order some music. Starting the 3rd and 4th graders on their recorders. That is always a squeaky time for a while. But it doesn't take long and they do pretty well.

May you have a fun filled week with lots of time for some great stitching.

My Thread Holder Arrived

It always surprises me when I receive an exchange. I am always so busy trying to get mine done and in the mail that I forget I am going to receive one also. It is a Blackbird Design stitched on 28 ct fabric with GA Garden Gate thread. I just love it. I like Ellen's idea of putting it on a piece of wood. What a clever idea. It has given me some ideas that I will have to share with DH. He is the wood man in our house.

Our bathroom is almost complete. I can't wait until it is finished. I will take pictures. Now I need to make a new curtain for the window. I'm glad Labor Day is coming up as that will give me an extra day to sew.

My school year is going great and I have wonderful classes. I also have 39 children in my Honor Choir. That is a great improvement from the 11 that I started with 4 years ago.

It is late and I need to rest so until next time, have a great weekend.

LK Exchange Arrived

Heather was my partner in our LKE.
I like the black and white she chose
and I love that pattern. Now all of my
exchanges have been sent and received
so I can sign up for the next round.
Today was my first day back at school.
I was tired after teaching but then Ihad to do some grocery shopping and that helped and I'm not so weary. The kids were great
and we have 40 new students and that is marvelous. We have Mass on Friday so we are working on that music. It is a never ending process.
