I'm going on a field trip.

Don't you just love field trips!

Especially field trips to the local cross stitch store. Acorns and Threads is located in Beaverton, OR. We are very, very lucky to have it and all the ladies are so nice. They are holding two patterns for me which I'm going to pick up tomorrow. The first one is for the Smalls SAL that Becky started recently (autumn themed for the first round). I keep changing my mind about which one to do :). I'm thinking about making one of the squares into a scissor fob.

Then I also had to have Amazing Grace by My Big Toe. I love this hymn and think it will be a Christmas present for some special friends. Assuming I get it done in time, anyway.

I'm still waiting to hear from my exchange partner with the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange. I'm going to give up by Monday and stitch a replacement piece and this time send it with tracking I guess. I'm really bummed because it was so cute. Ok, enough whining. I have two more exchanges to do and then I think I will take a break for the year and concentrate on some other things.

Baby report....

My baby (well, mine monday through friday from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. anyway) is growing up way to fast. He can stand holding onto anything solid, cut his first two teeth in the last couple of days, and has stood by himself twice now. In a few days he will officially be 8 1/2 months old.

Have a great day everyone!

I like the Autumny designs. Good luck in finishing Amazing Grace. It is a huge project but wil be beautiful when finished.
I too have an exchange lost in the mail. It was a Just Nan and I sent to Spain on June 29th. I am stitching a replacement. I am fairly upset cause this was first Just Nan that I stitched. I am going to send the replacement by UPS. That way maybe I can track it.
