No Photos Today

Well, I have tried to upload photos almost every day for the past week but for some reason, they aren't loading on blogger. I'm sure that will be fix soon but I thought I would check in anyway.

About a month ago, I started working on Around the World in 80 Stitches sal. I was loving it. I soon discovered that the metallic thread that I had picked out was not going to work. I ordered a couple of colors so I could choose what I liked the best. Well, I am still waiting for the threads as they are back ordered. Ugh! I finally decided to use some DMC metallic. I hate working with the stuff but I have to admit, the color is exactly what I was looking for. When I get part 1 done, which should be soon, I'll try to post a photo. Hopefully my troubles with Blogger will be fixed by then.

I have also been working a little on HaED's Fairy Frog Mother. Not much, but a little.

And my chicks will be 5 weeks old this Saturday. I was going to post photos of my little cuties at age 4 weeks but well, you know.

I realize that I missed TUSAL. I will try to get that photo up as well. Last week was kind off hectic for me. My Dad had surgery to remove a large skin cancer mass and he isn't recovering as quickly as we would all like. I'm not saying this is my excuse for missing TUSAL, I'm saying this is why I totally forgot about it. lol.

On a completely seperate note, my cousins are going back to school next week. I have babysat them both since they were born and they pretty much have become "my kids". It has been decided that they are now old enough to be by themselves after school until their mom gets home. I have known that this day was coming but it feels like I'm sending my kids off to college or something like that. I'll still get to see them but not nearly as much.  I'm trying not to be sad.

Sorry the photos aren't working today. Have you tried copy and paste rather than using the insert photo icon?

I'm got a list on my blog of some of the bloggers who are stitching Around the World. Would you like to be added? I'm nearly done with Part 3 now but have stitched the outline and bs for Parts 4 and 5. It's my cunning plan so I don't feel so far behind!
