TUSAL and A Happy Dance

Here's my TUSAL photo for October. The green on top is from my Tree below. :-)

This is Tree of Stitches designed by Abi Gurden. The yahoo group can be found here. I made a few small changes. I added a frog button and a few extra flowers. Oh, and instead of doing french knots, I used green beads. I don't mind doing french knots but there's no way I could that many without having to rip out half of them. I was able to pick this up here and there and stitch for 30 minutes or so. So what should have just taken maybe a week at most, took almost a month to finish. But it is a finish!

It's Been One of Those Months!

I have not gotten very many stitches in at all this month. My Mom had surgery on her neck and I have been cooking and cleaning for her and my Dad. I am also still babysitting my cousins and my nephew. Of course, I still have all of my numerous animals to feed, clean, and take care of. Whew! I'm getting tired just thinking about it all! On top of all of that, there seems to be a blockage in the plumbing somewhere. We have been trying to fix it for 4 days. We work on it, it seems to be fixed, and then it plugs up again about 12 hours later. I'm ready to call a plumber but no one wants to do that yet. oh, and a neighbors dog came over yesterday and killed one of my roosters. I didn't see which dog did it so it's not like I can go complain to them or anything. Needless to say, I am stressed. I actually feel a little better now that I've got my complaints out of my system.

Another New Start!

Ok, so this should be my last new start for a while. Hee hee! If I do start anything else it will most likely be a small project that I can work on during the day while I'm babysitting my nephew.

Ok, so this is HaED's Fairy Frog Mother by Lisa Victoria. Here is what she will look like when finished.

And this is what I got done so far.
