Just a little update

I know it has been a while since I updated but it is just because not much has least until last night. I was walking out side and missed the small step onto my deck. I fell and after having my dd and dgd come running I managed to get up and hobble out to the car. I didn't get hurt except for the large lump on my left wrist. I put ice on it and this morning I have a large purple bruise on it. I can move everything but it is very sore and the fingers are slightly swollen. I guess I will be ok. Considering the fall, I am very lucky.

I have been stitching as much as possible and am trying very hard to finish my Snad Castle. I have run out of one of the major colors (didn't get enough) and will have to go get another skein of it. I will be traveling to a near by town to get that soon. I am now working on two small projects for baby showers. I have decided to try one of the "no sew cubes" that so many people at ILCS have done. Rene was nice enough to send me the instruction. I will post pictures when I get them done. They are basically the same pattern but one is in pink and one is blue. I was amazed how quickly they stitch up and the backstitching really makes things pop. I started the pink one last Friday and had it done on Monday. I started the blue yesterday and have more than half of it done. I won't be able to stitch until this evening as my day is full of errands.

My dd and dgd decided to go to Wal-Mart for donuts this morning and they called me to make a call to 9-1-1. In a large truck with the passenger window down about only 3 inches was a small white dog the was obviously not happy. At 10 AM it was already close to 90 degrees outside here in WI and the dog should not have been in the truck. I am appalled at people who think that an animal will be OK as long as they leave a (one) window open. I wish we could close them up in the truck and only leave one window down 3". I wonder how long they would last. I'm sorry but I am all for having a pet as long as it is cared for.

Now that I have made that point I will say "TaTa" for today. Happy Stitching.
