 I continued working on Bee Busy this week.  I will now go back to the next project in my rotation as soon as I figure out which one it is.
And here is the latest jigsaw puzzle I finished.  It was from a photo of Diane Phalen.  I know I have a chart of hers in my stash to stitch someday.

Weather is supposed to be sunny today.  I need to get out and do my yardwork as there is more rain ahead for the week.  On Saturday I will be going to see my daughter graduate from college.  She has a job lined up not too far from college and hopefully will be moving into her apartment next Saturday also.  I have been so busy that I have not had time to read any books lately.  But life is good and I am very happy being busy.

I saw this posted on the Twisted Stitcher's blog.  It it is what I am working towards.  Learning to respect and love myself and move forward with my life in a positive way.  I have a long way to go before I will be ready or able to share my life again with someone else.  But I wanted to be able to see these words whenever I need a reminder of the course I am on.

"I can't be all things to all people and I deserve to be treated as I wish to be treated. I try to always treat others as I wish to be treated (try being the operative word). I must remember, I'm not a dog begging for leftovers from the table. I deserve to eat from the banquet too."

Vonna's words spoke to me.

 Progress on In The Garden as of 4/21/12.  I love the colors in this one.
 Here are my orts for the TUSAL.  Need to tamp them down to start off the new month.
 I had a new start Saturday while traveling by bus to Louisville KY for Thunder over Louisville.  It is Bee Busy from Cross Country Stitching April 2012.  Not alot done but a start.
And here is a picture of some of the fireworks at Thunder Over Louisville.  They were awesome.  It is the largest fireworks show in the US.  During the day there was also an air show.  The stealth bomber flew by and a Harrier did a demonstration just to name a few of the planes that flew in the air show.  Weather was chilly but we had a good time.

Worked on Butterfly Fairy Day this week.  I thought I would get a corner finished. But life got in the way.  I spent most of yesterday cleaning my bedroom and bathroom as the in-laws will be coming to spend the weekend next weekend.  My bedroom is so small I worry about them being able to walk into it to get in bed and not falling over stuff.  I still have more to go this afternoon.  Last night I had to rip out all of the stitches I put in as I missed 2 rows.  I guess I was just too tired to stitch.

 I continued working on Little Fairies at Play and now have 6,820 stitches done.  I am close to finishing the first page.
Here is the latest jigsaw puzzle I completed.  It is supposed to glow in the dark.   I have been cleaning and finding jigsaw puzzles stashed around the house.  I have already started another one.

I worked on all of these since the last WIPocalypse.  Little Fairies at Play will stay out for 2 more days.  I am close to finishing page 1.

 I worked on Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott this past week.  Just a little more left on the wing and then I only have the bottom of her dress to go.  There is also alot of beads to be added.  But I should get this one finished in 2012.
 My lawn mower died and I had to buy a new one.  It took me 2 hours to assembly it when it should probably only have taken me 30 minutes.  But it did work and my lawn has been mowed.
Went to visit my daughter at college for her birthday.  She is 22 now.  Here she is with her fiance.
