Technical Difficulties

.....so we have had few technical difficulties here. Last Sunday a wayward squirrel got into a transformer line and we lost electricity for about an hour. When the electricity came on we didn't have internet, the modem bit the dirt in the process of the electricity coming off and on. It wasn't until Wednesday that we got a new modem. I had parent-teacher conferences, so it wasn't until late Wednesday night we got everything hooked back up.

Between work, soccer, Jon's school stuff, and Dan's work schedule things around here have been hectic. Below is a picture of my progress on the Farmer's Alphabet by Prairie Schooler. As you can see the progress it ever so slight. I am down to the last nine squares.


My plans for the day was to finish these last 9 squares, but alas Dan has announced that he is planning to stay home today! Why the man can't find a hobby is beyond me! I mean can't he go outside and nail something together? make ships in a bottle? rake leaves? just do something!

I am anticipating a trip to Hobby Lobby in the near future when I get this finished. I hope they are having a good deal on frames. I still have the Farmer's Row from Bent Creek to frame, so when I get both of these framed I will have totally gorgeous kitchen decor, if I do say so myself.

After this project it is back to the stockings. I now have three to get done! These people are reproducing faster than I can stitch. I am hoping to have two of them done by Christmas, so you can tell what I plan on doing between now and then. One of the babies won't make an appearance until next March, so I have some time with that one, but the other two are already here!

It is good to be back online and enjoying all of your lovely blogs and stitching. When I can pull myself away from blog reading I plan to have many new projects to show you!

Have a wonderful week!
