Such a great day!

I’ll start off with HoHRH.

The house is done! A day early! Joy! Tomorrow I won’t have as much stitching time as usual, we’re going to a baseball game tomorrow evening. Go Pirates! 😀

The house is a big deal, because you have to stitch it twice.

Fun that. /sarcasm

My LQS called, my baby quilt is done! I went and picked it up. It is full of awesome. Sadly – my sewing machine is in the shop (I won’t rant, at least not today) so I can’t finish it until the machine comes home.

Then the mail came. My Just Nan exchange arrived from Nicola.

Her finishing is WOW. I should finish a pinkeep so nicely. The pattern is “Rose Lady” and I love it. Thank you Nicola!

And I got RAK’d. 😀

Mel you rock. Thank you so much, I really really really really really wanted her. Was it my drool all over your finish picture that tipped you off?

And the cherry on top? Of course ds waited until oh 7:30 or so to tell us tonight (and he had a half day today, last day of school, he was home at noon) he’ll be 3rd chair clarinet next year in the HONORS Band. There were at least 25 kids trying out for the Honors and Symphonic bands, they test the kids and decide what band to put them in and then which chair. According to this my kid is the 3rd best in the school. I feel like the Mom at the end of The Music Man when all the parents hear their kids perform for the first time; “That’s MY WINSTON!!!!!!!!!!” Now hopefully he’ll practice over the summer so he won’t get bounced out to last chair in Symphonic. lol

    Melissa, I’m so glad you liked the exchnage that I sent you. I really enjoyed stitching it for you, Just Nan is one of my favourite designers. Great WIP and lovely RAK too. Congratulations to your son on his achievement.

    I love that house. Love the color and the double stitching – even though it was a pain.
    Your Just Nan is gorgeous. I love their stuff and have not a one – one day. The to do pile is huge now.
    Congrats to Winston and his oh so proud Momma

    Your house looks great. Congrats on your son’s place in the band. That’s terrific news. The pin keep is lovely.
    And …I’m going to stitch the letter M soon too. Melanie get stitched while my daughter is on a trip in Europe. When are you going to stitch yours?

    Your stitches are so perfect. I would never blow mine up online like that. I’m jealous!

    Congratulations to Winston on the band honor.
