Some progress shots to share!!!
I have found myself blessed with a few extra stitching moments here and there - and I've been enjoying them immensely!!!!!
I was able to finish one full page of PV's "Delicate Beauties" and have now moved this project to the bottom of my rotation pile - (which is growing everyday! I keep finding all sorts of new and fun designs that I just "must" add in!! ) :)
I was also able to complete the "Faith" square of my LK "Blessings of Christmas" project. Only 4 more!!! My LNS was out of the other leaflets that I need to finish - but they have been ordered and are on their way!!! I have also ordered a SanMan design "Sharing the I" which is a real cute Christmas "to-do". I've also pulled out a couple of small ornament designs that I like and added them to "the pile" also. :)
I've started my "Homespun Christmas" by Hinzeit (why did I pick the one with the BIG blocks instead of one of the smaller designs??) :) I do like the larger design though and have a special spot picked out where it will look "just right" in our home - it's just going to take me a bit longer...
Other than that - temps have cooled off a bit - making it MUCH easier to stick to our regular tennis schedule - whoo hoo!!!
We're off to a great start with our homeschooling! We're really "diving in" (get it, ha ha!!!) to a science unit study on Oceans - and our history is focused around all things about ancient Rome - what a great time period in history!
I have a "My Delicious Dinners" session scheduled for Tomorrow - I'm really looking forward to that!! I've used them before and we absolutely love it! Have you ever tried it? You get together with some friends and package up pre-prepared meals (chosen from a pre-set menu w/ lots of variety available - then bring 'em home (usually 12 different dinners that can be split to make more meals) . This works so well for us - I love that I can just "heat and eat" the meals - it fits right in with our busy lifestyle. No more staring at an empty fridge wondering what's for dinner! It also cuts WAY down on our trips to the store - and our food budget!! (That leaves more $ for my XS habit, right???) We only need to buy fresh produce, a few sides and a bit of dairy and breakfast items.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
