I Did It On My Own

Yes, old dogs can learn new tricks. I was going to call my friend, Becky K. this next weekend to help me finish my Fall Pyn Keep. Duh, the 2nd of September is Friday, tooooo late. So I got busy last night and this afternoon and did it my self. I took the 2 tutorials that Anita's Little Stitches has on her blog and combined them and added my own 2 cents and finished it. I used the trim I had ordered from Anita and I love it. It lays so smoothly and evenly. There are some mistakes but I don't think they are too noticeable and I truly loved making it. Now I want to make some more so I can really do it without all of the stress. : ) I used :The Pumpkin Farm" from Bent Creek Snapperville. I used fabric that was in my stash and I used the threads that were suggested. Fun project!

School is going well and I am busy. I have great classes this year and the students are really working hard. This will be a wild week because we have Open House for 3 nights but I only have to attend 2 of them. It just makes for a late evening but oh well.

I need to clean my house and run to the store. Have a wonderful week and God Bless You.

Gaby Sent Biscornus from Germany

I received two beautiful biscornus in the mail today from Gaby of Germany. She couldn't decide which one to send so she sent them both. They are just too sweet. They are designed by Alulie. My dh had just put up a little shelf in my bathroom and I had put a sunflower picture on it that I had purchased from my friend in Idabel. Gaby's little note card was a sunflower so I just had to display my biscornus near my picture.

We Need Some Brrrrrr!!!!!!!

I received my HoE Christmas LK ornie today in the mail It is just darling and I hope it will bring us some cooler weather. Today is supposed to be 115. It is LK " Winter Crazy Brrrr". Elisa stitched it on 28 ct. Blue Check Linen and put blue check gingham on the back. She used the suggested DMC colors and finished it with beads that match the little scarf. It is precious. It will fit perfectly on my little tree during our Christmas season.

Exchanges Are On Their Way

My bouquet is called "Posy Pot" designed by Cecilia Turner for Heart in Hand. It is stitched on 26 ct. Eggshell Lugana. I changed a couple of the threads because I didn't have the correct color.

This is for my Seasonal Exhange.

I chose "Joy" for my LK Perpetual Christmas ornie. It was a 1999 freebie. I changed some of the colors because dark fabric was suggested and I used 28 ct. opalescent. I finished it with gold beads and a little hanger made out of beads.

Our weather has been beastly hot.

Today we reached 109 and tomorrow is supposed to be 111. I walked 2 miles this morning at 7:30 and it was already 81. Tomorrow I am walking at 6:30 without the sun up and that should help. Can't drink too much water these days.

I'm working on my classroom and it is taking shape. I found out today that I am getting a Promethean board for my classroom. Wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I will have to go back and move some furniture around so my desk will be close to the board. Thank heavens my dh is always willing to help.

It is late and I need to go to bed. Stay cool. Peace and blessings to all.
