Friday night we did our bi-weekly gathering of So Cal Stitchers at Tall Mouse - always a good time....we laugh, we stitch, we trade stash (thanks for the Christmas books and the magnets Debi!), we talk, we just have an all around good time!! That kind of messed with my rotation a little bit, since Friday night and Saturday should have been MawMaw's Quilt, and instead I did Monopoly. So, I substituted and stitched MawMaw's Quilt while we watched football yesterday (Go BEARS!!!).
This week is going to be fun for me - hopefully I'll be watching my Cubbies beat the Dodgers to get a spot in the National League penant race. Keep your fingers crossed!!
Thanks for checking out my blog - I know, I'm horrible about thanking everyone who leaves comments, I just get so far behind so fast......but I do appreciate the comments!

I messed with my rotation a little bit this week - had a stitching get together on Friday night, so I took Monopoly because it's one of the easier things I'm working on. So, I left Monopoly on the Q-Snaps and worked on it a little more yesterday. I'll work on MawMaw's Quilt today to make up for not stitching on it Friday and yesterday, and then switch to Angel of Cross Stitch tomorrow, which gets me back onto starting a new week of rotation on Monday.
Whew, I'm confusing myself! LOL

And here is the board as it stands - since I had finished another side, I figured I'd show the whole thing. It's funny how much "greener" the fabric uses up close with direct light than it looks a little less "lit up".
Thanks for taking a look!!!

Here's my latest and greatest (well, I don't know about greatest) update to BoInk. I got two more sections done (I think they're sections 2 and 8 - not going in order because I'm still trying to catch up. But....it's in my rotation every one week out of every three, and that's how often sections get released. IF I can get two blocks done each week, I'll be caught up fairly quickly (we won't talk about the border though!).
Oh well - onto Monopoly today, then MawMaw's Quilt this week.
Thanks for looking!!!

The red blob doesn't look much like the car on the Free Parking spot, but I have faith it will eventually! LOL

BUT my missed stitching time was for a great cause - a family get together to celebrate my dad's 74th birthday, but also to see my niece Stacey, her husband Paul, and their four kids (Dominique - aka Neeka, Christopher - aka Bubba, Alexis - aka Lexie, and Anthony - aka Boomer). Anthony is the little guy that is fighting kidney cancer and WINNING!!! He's halfway thru his 18 week chemo regimen, and it's going wonderfully. They think they got all the cancer during the surgery in June (a 7 1/2 pound tumor in a 3 year old - well, he turned 3 a couple of days after the surgery), but they're doing chemo just to make sure. To look at him, you'd never know there was anything wrong, which is wonderful! Just goes to show there are miracles!
And in today's mail I got the Lizzie Kate pattern that I ordered to make just for them - it says "Work Hard, Pray Long, and Trust God". Couldn't get more appropriate than that for them!!!
Thanks for looking at my blog!

Today should be Monopoly, but I'm not sure how much I'll get done on it since we have a family get together for my Dad's birthday. PLUS we finally get to hook up with my niece Stacey and her family (which includes my nephew Anthony - the one who was so sick a couple of months ago) - I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing all of them!
Anyway, thanks for looking!!!

I also bought a new tub for stash storage. Helped me get rid of fabric and floss accumulation in just some Joann's bags, and I also gathered up my patterns and put them all in my notebook. I have a notebook full of page protectors so I slid all my patterns into those pages, and that will be a nice way to keep them organized. So now at least I feel like I can find things when I need to.
Otherwise, a fairly quiet day! Thanks for looking at my blog.
