Been Awhile

Well it has been awhile since I last posted. There has been a lot going on and I'm wondering how I am finding the time to do the prestitching for the Merry Cox classes. I have Tend Thy Sheep all stitched. I still have to do the charting out of "In Memory of...." on the back of the scissor case on the Diminutive, stitch that up and then I'm done. I'm about 1/2 done with the Americana sewing case and then on to Milady's Petite box.

One thing that is going on is the Springdale school board can not make up it's mind about the school zones. There are two new ones going in our area. One east of town and one west of town. The one West of town which is going to be called "West" is the one that the school board keeps changing the boundaries. I do not want my kids to really go to the new school. I am perfectly happy with Young Elem. And so is my Sons. Plus I'm supposed to register Ryan for kindergarten on the 11th of April at Young....and the school board will not have their meeting til the 10th of April to confirm the zone. So I really do not know which school they will be attending. The first proposal had Brandon and Ryan in Young zone then they changed it and I looked on their website last week. They had us in the West zone and I looked today and they have taken that proposal off and is under construction for a new proposal. I'm hoping that we will get to stay at Young. So if anyone is reading this....please say a tiny prayer that we get to stay with the school we are in now.

Other wise...spring is here in the Ozarks. Everything is blooming and the pollen is really bad. It is spring break this week. The family went to Murfreesboro to dig diamonds this past weekend. No such luck but found some really pretty rock and minerals. A fun time was had by all!!! I would like to go again now that I know what I'm doing.

I received Ellen's Hornbook in the mail. It is so pretty...I can't wait to stitch it up. I am always late with limited orders. I can't believe I actually made the list to be one of the first to get this chart and hornbook. I will bring it for show and tell for my Stitching Group to see.

I see where Merry will be teaching again for the Minnesota Guild March 2008. I am planning on attending due to she is teaching the Williamsburg piece. I had seen Kay's and think it is stunning. One of Merry's pretty pieces. Plus I just love Merry. She is so warm and friendly and so down to earth. She is my all time favorite designer.

I hope I can post more frequently. I'm going to really try. And try to post a picture or two of things I'm stitching.

Til next time...
Happy Stitching

  1. Hey....I'm proud our you! You finished a project AND updated your blog. You are on a roll! Thanks so much for the kind words. I really enjoyed visiting with you. I got to talk with several nice sewing ladies that day, so I came home all refreshed and inspired (despite the down pour of rain). One of these years I might be able to do a Merry Cox class. It sounds like you have so much fun with these. I am currently working on CHS My Home Town. Keep updating your blog...we like to keep track of you! Jean
