Stitching Time Again For Me!!!!!

edited at 5pm: I'm stitching and Johnny snaps a couple of pictures. Thought I'd show you I really did stitch today!

I've been busy this past week, finished up Hannah's Halloween RR, looks great! Started on Rowyn's Quaker RR, started a Stacy Nash freebie from last weekend's stitching party that Tanya hosted! Thanks to Tanya for doing that!

Have completed my Thanksgiving Ornie, but have not assembled it. I went to Abcedarius yesterday with my baby sis. It was her birthday last week and I took her out to Chili's for lunch. We had a wonderful time. Heartfelt talks, good food and a fun time was had yesterday. I borrowed her Crop A Dile to try making a floss key ring. Wish me success!

Planning on stitching today! So this will be short!

Wedding Pictures!

Yesterday my niece Tiffany got married to her sweetie Justin! It has taken us almost 2 years to get to this point! Whew! At least the wedding went off without a hitch. All and all I think the wedding was great. The bride and groom leave for Cancun today for their honeymoon.

Since the wedding is over now, I should hopefully get back to stitching. I don't really have any stitchy pics to show you, just wedding ones. Enjoy!

Dance Pictures and Update on Bony!

Well, to let everyone know how the appeal went, we lost. They said that knitting was a disturbance in the classroom, so Jacob still had to serve his in school suspension. It did not make me happy. I can tell you, that his one teacher lied during the meeting. He was one of the teachers that said Jacob's punishment was unfair. But, when it came time to own up to his statement in front of the principal, he became a coward. Jacob was in the meeting, and I think he was devastated to learn that his mentor, his favorite teacher, could lie and not stand up for what was right. It has been a hard lesson, but he doesn't trust this teacher anymore. I mean, come on, be a man and stand up for your students if you think they are being unfairly convicted. This teacher would not even look us in the face after the appeal meeting.

Plus, they have banned knitting at school because of this. So sad! But, my Jacob is a rebel, he has started a knitting group for teens online and after school if any want to learn at our house. I'm all for it! Plus, we have made a point to let everyone know the outcome of the meeting.

Now, on to Bony! He is doing so good! He has recovered so fast, it's amazing. He is such a love bug.

I also received my Quaker linens from Rowyn. I've got to get busy since I got two of them. I need to get Wendy's in the mail to Valerie. We have been so busy this week with preparations for Tiffany's wedding. I've got to hem Jason's dress pants and iron every ones dress shirts for the wedding.

Well, I'll leave everyone with a big smile and a grin!


ps:By the way, I need to make voodoo dolls of the mean teacher who gave Jacob the suspension! Hahaha! I'm so evil!!!!!!
pps: Jacob is such a camera hound! He models for every picture!
That is Kate, Jacob's friend he gave the wrist corsage too.

Look what I made! My first biscornu!

It was sent to Goldie! I just checked the SBEBB, and she left a message that she received it! Yea! I know she loves it. I do too! I almost didn't want to send it! But I did!

Poor Bony! I picked him up from the vet this morning. He had surgery yesterday to get neutered and declawed. The only cat that is not declawed is Boo boo Kitty, as he was too old to change his rambling ways when he adopted us.

Bony is quite under the weather right now. I've been carrying him around as much as I can today to give his paws a rest. Poor baby. I'll take pictures later when he gets up.

I've started on Hannah's Halloween rr. I finished Wendy's Quaker RR. That will be going in the mail this week to Valerie.



My son Jacob was given in school suspension for knitting! Yes, you heard me right. Knitting! I have had major support from 3 teachers who say I should fight this, and fight this I will! I think I would rather the teachers be willing to help put the bullies, the violent kids(yes, there are violent kids at our school) the trouble makers in suspension, but NO, they have chosen to make my son Jacob an example. But this Momma don't play this stupid little game! So first thing Monday, Jacob and I and his knitting supplies will be up at the school ready to appeal this suspension.

What makes this silly is that 4 band members already knit during breaks and bus trips. So of course this will put a damper on the kids that wanted me to teach them how to knit too. Jeez! I wish I could afford a private school!

What is this world coming too? They are gonna wish they hadn't messed with me! Jacob is an honor student, top 5% of his class, already has 3 college credits to his name, Allstate Honors Band, Boy Scout who is working on his Eagle Rank, and of course Symphonic Band and Marching Band. Helps build houses for Habitat for Humanity for goodness sake. I refuse to let this school system railroad him into having a permanent record that will follow him to college. This Momma is mad!

Alright Momma, calm down, breathe!

You would not think that this household sees this much drama! But, alas it does! Just think how it would be if there was a girl living here too. I wonder if other teens parents experience all the turmoil too? I don't remember it being like this when I was a teen? maybe it was, I only remember certain parts of the teen years!

At least they are gonna let Jacob go to Homecoming Dance. He will look very handsome, I'll take pictures later tonight of him dressed up snazzy.

Well, I'll give everyone a break from the ramble!

Look at my spooky goodys!

Michelle(Arthemise) was my SBEBB Halloween exchange partner, look at what she made for me. She cross stitched a Helga design and made me a basket lid! It looks wonderful! Her Momma made me some cute place mats which are being used as we speak! What a great exchange!

I mailed my package today to my secret Halloween Exchange partner. I sure hope she likes it! It is a first for me!

We had a competition meet on Saturday. What a day! We got Superior in Overall Band, Drumline, and Drum Major. We got an Excellent for our Colorguard. So getting that excellent bumped us from winning the big trophy. The band kids were alittle upset at the colorguard. Oh well, try again next year.

Look what I got!

Joan had my name for Ornament Halloween Exchange! I love it! I've got it hanging from my Mr. Bones! I have mailed my ornie to Joan, so hopefully she should get it in a day or two. I can't wait to show everyone what I stitched for her!

Halloween is one of my favorite holiday to decorate for. Check out my mantel! My Momma got me an early Christmas present, a new Marie Osmond doll for Halloween! I love her! She is a ghost this year! Perfect for my mantel.

Thank you Momma! I love you!

Edgar's MAW is going in the mail tomorrow! I know he will love it! Can't wait to show that picture! The SBEBB Halloween exchange will be in the mail later this week. Most likely on Friday. I've been very busy with exchanges. I just can't seem to say no to signing up for more exchanges. I've signed up for Reindeer games, Thanksgiving Ornie, haven't signed up for a Christmas one yet, but I know I will.

I've got to get busy and start supper!
