Witchy weekend


I started stitching on Friday nite and this is where I ended up with it today.

I took a break from her black skirt and stitched a little on The Peacock Sampler.

I found another Halloween design I am going to start tonite, if I can find fabby for it, maybe purple it it's a big enough piece for it. I will have to do a floss toss.

I am so happy right now with my part-time job. My transfer finally went through and I dont have to work Sunday nites anymore. That puts me at Mon. - Thurs. ((yippee!!) I just have to work like an hour more a nite. I put the transfer in April of 2007 with 12 years in. I am so happy today, but tomorrow will be a different story, cuz I start training and certification for the next two weeks (yikes!) I know I will be nervous. They did a handshake just before the contract was up on Thurs. so no strike days off (hehe) and my vacation will be no more next week either, being in classes :( Thats not too bad though cuz I get 5 weeks anyway, only 4 this year but its worth it. Enough on that.
I have been forgetting to post pic of Brianna's 1st BD party so here ya go.

I dont think she knows quite what to think with everyone standing there singing to her. I think she is still pondering it. Look at the cute pink Bears (Chicago) jerseyAnd of all the toys, they both want the same thing, lol.

We went to the pool on one of Heathers days off. It was so refreshing in 90+

I WAS going to share a piece of dyed fabric. But, I can't find it and NOBODY threw it away. I pulled some fresh beets in the garden and was boiling them for diner last week and thought it was a pretty color and why not try going green,lol I mean purple/pink. Yes! I laid the fabric on a napkin after dunking it a few times and left it there to dry. It dried up alright and walked away, lol. It came out a beautiful pink, just right for a Valentines design. You bet I will try it again and safe guard it.

Well, I better run and dig up some fabby , so I have something to show you with the new WIP.

Happy Stitching!!

Thanks so much for the visits, comments and e-mails.
