I just received this wonderful pinkeep from Angela. I love it! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I already have this displayed in my living room. I'm going to do a Christmas ornament exchange with her later this year. I only hope I can do as well as this little beauty. Thank you Angela!

I only have about 400 stitches and then I am done with page 9 of FoS. This will make my half year goal I posted on the HAED BB. I'm finding it really hard to put this one down, but I'm forcing myself to stitch in MXI part 8. Here is my start on this part. I need to get it and part 9 done. I am trying to work on a small hoop this time to see if it is easier to stitch on as this is one huge mother.
I also picked up a few goodies at the LNS. I love the Blue Ribbon Designs Creepy Crawly! I don't know when I'll get to do it, but I love anything Halloween. The JCS Ornaments issue is fabulous. There are some beautiful ornaments to do. I especially like the Little House by Thea Dueck and the Noel by Sweetheart Tree. And of course I had to get the new Mirabilia. She is really beautiful.
Well, back to my housework. Must get it done so I can go back to my stitching.

I have a face now! This is how far I got after the HAED SAL. I didn't get the page done, but hopefully soon. I got quite a lot done. Saturday March and I got together and first we stitched on LHN's Home of a Needleworker Too! I started on the windows and March started on the house. We decided that we would get together once a month and stitch on the LHN first and then switch to something else after a few hours. We had a lot of fun. One of the girls who we used to work with came by and stitched with us a little bit before she had to go to class. It was really great seeing her again. I'll try to update more often, but no promises :-)

September SAL

It's time for the HAED SAL! YAY! This will really get me started on my stitching again. Here is where I'm starting. I have two columns of page 9 done. I hope to get most of this page done this weekend. As I posted earlier, I'm going over to March's to stitch this weekend after we have breakfast. I'm getting really stoked. Can't wait for Saturday.

DH saw the President yesterday. He works at the State Dept. When he came out of the building a police officer blew his whistle and yelled at him "Sir, Sir, stop walking!" He said he looked around and everyone was standing still and not moving. The officer yelled at several others after him. A few minutes later the motorcade passed and ole George W was waving from his limo. Apparently you're not even allowed to walk down the street until he goes by. This is what happens when you work in D.C.

They unveiled the 9-11 Memorial at the Pentagon today. It's 184 benches, each one with the name of a person who died that day. It's different but has a certain elegance to it. I'll have to go up some time to see it up close.

Yes, you read that correctly. I haven't touched my stitching for almost a week. I finally did a couple hours last night, but not much. I've just been sort of blah and distracted. Hopefully I can get my stitching mojo back soon. I'm going over to March's this Saturday for a day of stitching so that should help. I finally caught up with readying blogs today. I haven't been reading them either. Bleagh!
