Another Whirlwind Week-Big News

Hi Friends,

Busy, busy, busy! Val, your RR is heading home! It is finished and it's almost home! I know you said not to iron it, so sorry friends, the linen is a little wrinkly. It's beautiful, and those silks are like butter. So nice to stitch with. So, I'm doing the happy dance that this one is finished! I'm working on Ulla's Spooky RR now, this will be a quick stitch, and my goal is to get it finished this weekend. We have a 4 day holiday, and I have already swept and polished the wood floors and dusted, so I won't feel guilty about my stitchy weekend!

NOW FOR THE BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!! Through the web, I have met Terrie, who has a cross stitch shop in Hiawassee, Ga. I have ordered from her, and I felt a kindred spirit in her. I've only ever emailed her and I like her! I'm thrilled that she is moving her cross stitch shop to Buford (Mall of GA), which is very near to me. I am gonna help out at her new shop! I'm so thrilled. She closes her shop in the mountains on Nov.30, 2009, and she is opening her new shop on Jan.4Th, 2010. I can't wait, just think friends, if you call the shop to order something, you just might get DaisyGirl! I'm so happy to help Terrie out. You know what, I know God has a plan for me, because he knew that Jacob graduating from high school and going off to college would have me lost and needing something to do. And, blessings abound, I met Terrie and now I won't have to worry about being sad and lonesome. (I will have Jason to look after, but he's almost 20 and he doesn't let me baby him.)
So friends, check out The Stitch Store for your cross stitching needs and wants, and maybe I'll be the one who packages it up for you! WHOOPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(I'm really trying to contain myself! hahahaha)
One more thing, this last picture is of Jacob and I at his Induction of the National English Honor Society! That boy sure makes me proud! That's Morgan, his date for Homecoming. He really likes her! (We ordered her corsage, and he wanted to have 4 roses for her!)
Alrighty friends, I do believe that I've talked your ears off!
