I Don't Mean to Brag, but....

Well, okay maybe I do! :) In two hours my stitching buddy is picking me up and we're heading to a stitch-in with the infamous Sue Hillis in Richmond, Virginia. Yeah! This is our 3rd time going and there is going to be a huge group of ladies! Some we've met before and some brand new to Sue's. We have ladies flying in and two ladies coming from Australia! :)

I really, really wanted to get all four little turtles done to take to Sue's. But after I saw my "to do" list yesterday, I thought that there was no way it was going to happen! We had invited our youth pastor and his wife over for dinner. And we had been gone for days and my house had been attacked by Star Wars Lego pieces while I was gone! I keep telling myself that one day I will miss all the lego's, right?!!!

I cleaned my house.
Grocery shopped.
Did laundry.
Mopped, yup I actually mopped! They have a crawling baby, so wanted to make sure the floor was good and clean!
Packed for Sue's.


Finally sat down and FINISHED my two last turtles. One is a pocket and the pocket is so tiny that I have no idea what in the world might fit in it! I'm talking about an inch of room. The last one is a pincushion and it sure is a weenie little pin cushion! I put the four layers of batting in there, but it still feels a little wimpy!

No time to take pictures, but I'll post some after the weekend.

Gotta get Andrew to school. Finish packing for Sue's. Take Luke to school. Get my food out of the fridge and then wait impatiently on the porch for my ride! :)

We're hitting an LNS on the way... we gotta beat the crowd you know!

The weekend is full of fun events and we always have a blast!

I need a break really badly at the moment! Our life is getting ready to hit WIDE OPEN! One of our college students moves in on Monday for two weeks. My mom comes middle of next week. Will have all eight of our college staff live with us the four days before we hit the road. Gotta finish a lot of work for our Bible schools on the road. Then we'll be gone for eight weeks of mission work with teenagers. Including a week in Canada and ten days in Honduras!

Gotta run! :) Have a great weekend, I know I will!

Hey Daffycat...I keep trying to keep your advice and keep my posts short, it just never happens! I think that means I'm a motormouth? :)

Sounds like a fun trip. How did you find out about it? Is this an annual thing in Richmond? I'd love some info if there are going to be more things in that area. It would be great to have stitching fun like that and then combine it with a trip to see some relatives. Have fun!

Hope you have a great time! I saw the information about this event (maybe on your blog??) and mentioned it to my husband. He wanted to send me, but I didn't want to miss my daughter's last jazz band concert. It was sweet of him anway--maybe another year. Please give us every last detail of the weekend.

Hope you had a great trip.

Looking forward to seeing your turtle. The pocket can hold a thimble or a clover threadcutter...just a few ideas.
