I finished Abecedaire by Gazette 94 on 10/26/10. This was a fun one to stitch. I am in the process of kitting up my next start to fill this rotation spot. Since I still had several days left in the week for this rotation, I moved on to the next piece early - Happy Girl. I will continue stitching on Happy Girl this week which is my normal week to work on this piece. I have made a lot of progress during these extra days and hope to finish this one before the year ends.

I worked on Day this past week. Missed quite a few days of stitching as I got a bad head cold. Just couldn't concentrate.

On my day off this week, my sister and I visited 3 antique stores. Unbelievable all of the different things that people collect. I was quite impressed at how dust free everything was. Wonder who has the job of dusting off all of the knick nacks, glass ware etc. We didn't buy anything and are still hunting for what we want to get for my daughter's hope chest.

This past week I worked on Garden Seed packets. I have moved on to the Marigolds and their bright orange colors.

Saturday we traveled to Ball State to see my daughter get her award for being on the Dean's List. It is always good to know that your tuition money is not being wasted. We took my father with us so he could see the campus and her dorm room. Spent an enjoyable day visiting with her and her boyfriend.

I am off Monday and Friday of this week. Friday I am going with my sister to visit different antique/junk stores here in town. We have always wanted to do this and now is the time.

This week I worked on Freight Train and finished the 3rd car. This means I am at the halfway point.

Friday was a beautiful day and I went hiking with my sister. We found our way to Huntington Lake as they had a 10 mile trail we wanted to try. It was to go around the lake. Well the trail was not marked good and had been updated and was now combined with a mountain biking trail for a total of 13 miles. We started at 9:30 am and finished up at 4:30. We had to back track a few times as we took wrong turns. So we ended up walking 16 miles. Good thing we took water and snacks. But it was a good way to spend a beautiful day with my favorite sister.

More progress on Happy Girl this week. I am down to the bottom edge.

We had a bonfire at my Dad's on Saturday night. Hot dogs and s'mores. It was good bonfire weather - in the low 40's. All of the kids had a good time.

Looking forward to Friday this week as my Sister and I are going on a 10 mile hike at a new trail for us. Hope the weather cooperates.
