LHN exchange

I finished my LHN exchange peice today. It is so cute! I don't want to post it until the recipient gets it. I am going to have a hard time letting this one go. It turned out so much better than I expected.
In other stitchy news, I finished Curly Q Ewe, did I mention that already? I finished Snip for a Queen by Raise the Roof Designs too. I just have to put it together now.
I found out my friend Autumn isn't going to stitch on my Mirabilia RR right now due to some circumstances beyond our control so I have an extra block. If anyone is interested in stitching on it please let me know.

We all should be aware of the flooding in the northern states by now. This is a link to My Mark Designs, Inside Studio Twenty and her part in helping. Link

What a day!

Today has been horrible.
First of all, I was told I have to take down some outside signage that I have at the shop. That doesn't sound too bad right? Well, the first sign is attached to the brick with some sort of super duper adhesive that we have been told will take the brick off if it is removed. That means I have to repair the brick. The second sign is on the marquee of the shopping center. That one means I have to hire someone to come remove it. $$$$$$

The second thing that happened was that I almost burned our store down today. I was making tacos for lunch and left the shells in the toaster oven too long. When I opened the door to the oven, the shells poofed up in flame. I was yelling for my mom. She went and got the fire extinguisher to put out the flames. For the rest of the afternoon I cleaned up yellow extinguisher powder which was all over everything.

Thirdly, I went to my car after work and my back window was down. I knew I had not rolled my window down. I tried to roll it up and I heard glass shattering all on the inside of my door. I have no idea what happened. Of course it is Friday afternoon and all the glass places are closed until Monday. I guess I get to decorate my car with a plastic bag over the weekend.

All I can think about right now is how much money all this is going to cost me....removal of signs, new toaster oven, new glass in window, oh and I want a stitching frame I just have to decide what I want. I should have gotten one at seminar since the K's Creation people were there. Oh and my cordless phone needs a new battery too.

Oh well, life goes on. Maybe it won't be as bad as I think. I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

I'm Home....

for a little while. I have been so many places I can't even remember where all I have been. My last trip was to the EGA Regional Seminar in San Antonio Texas. I will have to say that I had a great trip. Before I went, I was really dreading it. I decided on the way there that I was going to change my attitude and enjoy myself. I am so glad I did. I would have missed a lot otherwise. I didn't enjoy my class at all but that was my fault. I misread the technique of the class and it was something I do not enjoy. I did learn Or Nue' which is really cool. My teacher was great, I just didn't like the material. Nobody got mad at each other. Everyone acted like the adults that we should be. We all did things as a group and nobody was left out. I realized that I really do like some of the people that I thought I didn't like. I have a new respect for the EGA organization. Although our group struggles sometimes, the entire organization is really different. Next years seminar is all about finishing. They will have classes on how to do ornaments and standups and some of the teachers are coming to help you finish their peices. I think it will be fun.
My LHN exchange is due next week so I am off to finish that.
