Well the long wait is over for the boys – tomorrow we head a little over an hour away to spend an overnighter with Grandma Anna, Mike and Harley! That knowledge led to a hectic and unfocused Thursday! The boys spent some time on numbers, beading and playing with paper dominoes I had printed off the computer with a Halloween theme. They are most proud of their finished Halloween themed bracelets!
Trinity is doing quite well after her shots, a little tired and cranky and a small bump at the injection site on one arm but otherwise fine! Thank goodness!!!
I have gotten in my baking time with apple loaf and applesauce muffins. Ken and Ted made the promised double batch of sugar cookies though with the help of my cousin David and Fydo many cookies worth of dough have been sacrificed to feed the hungry masses. Oh and of course a few cooked ones went the same way. Add to that a loaf or two of bread from the bread maker and the house smells divine!
Sewing has actually been rather productive today – I finished my newest Ada Inspired. Crazy in Cantonese. I am very pleased with the smile though if I do it again I may mix the lovely yellow blending filament with a darker DMC floss. Hopefully this weekend I will have a couple more projects to focus on.
In the meantime I have started the beading on my Santa. Time consuming but the effect is absolutely lovely!
I am planning on getting to work finishing Nathan’s dragon gift (I will post a picture AFTER Christmas sadly). I picked up the beautiful blending filament I was missing – Confetti Gold – 045. As much as they are a pain to work with I LOVE the look of metallics!
So tonight I have to work on tidying my threads and prepping my patterns for travel… just overnight but with 4 kids, a hubby and an addiction like cross stitching – well it is a bit of work! Can’t say I hate it though with the friends we have, the beloved extended family, my babies and my soul mate… I may be short in material riches but spiritual, emotional and psychological… I am blessed!
