Has it really been over a month???? Geez....

Wow! I can't believe it's been over a month since I've posted an update! So much has happened since the last time. I finally finished my super secret stitching project, but can't show any pics of it or say much more about it. When the entire thing is completely done....I'll be posting a HUGE blog update about it.
In the meantime, I stitched up this little card for an exchange. I wasn't sure I would like the burgandy cardstock, but it's growing on me. Hope my partner likes it!

This next little piece is what I call..."the worlds ugliest scarecrow"..... trying to find a scarecrow to fit in a certain size square is pure headache! This is the only one I could find that would fit the space I had and I honestly hate it! Anyway, I stitched him up since it was the only one I could find that would work.
Next.....was a wonderful surprise I received this week in the mail! My friend Carein sent me the cutest little birdhouse! Her and her hubby have a small business making these and other cute things. (Wildwood Products) The picture just doesn't do it justice. It is beautiful craftsmanship! I am just amazed at what they can do with a piece of wood! My hubby quickly fell in love with it and hung it in my dining room so everyone can see it. I'm sure I'll be getting lots of compliments on it and everyone is going to want one! It truly is a unique treasure and I'm honored that Carein thought of me to send one to. I love it!
Here we have my 2 goofy boys.....hubby happened to go into our local convenience store the other day and he found some old style coca cola bottles. I had no idea they still sold them! He picked them up and brought them home for the boys. They couldn't believe they actually got to drink "antique" coke! They honestly believe that the coke was at least 100 years old...LOL! It was quite amusing to listen to them talk about how the taste was so different from now days....LOL! I wasn't about to tell them it was probably made within the last month! hehehe
On Sunday my hubby's grandmother came to visit us for a few hours as she was passing through town. We haven't seen her for at least 5 years so it was a wonderful afternoon. The kids had a blast talking to her and listening to her tell stories about when their dad was little. She's in her late 80's, so I'm VERY thankful that the kids got to spend a few hours with her. My daughter took off with her in her bedroom and spent at least an hour in there chatting with her and showing off her wedding dress. I have no idea what the heck they were talking about but when they came out of the room both were smiling like they had some big secret..LOL!

Not much more to report in my neck of the woods. I've got lots of projects to finish soon. I have an ornament I need to get done for an exchange and I really want to get some of my UFO's done before the end of the year. Hope everyone is having a great week! Hugs to all!
