It's rarely a good thing…

when a family member is a news story.

Mike (step-dad) is fine. He wasn’t wearing his seat belt but the steering wheel ended up jammed up against the driver’s seat, so this was maybe the 1 out of a 1,000 times that not wearing the seat belt worked out well. He’s still getting a ticket for not wearing the belt. And I imagine a couple of others to keep it company. But like I said, he’s ok. No one else was involved or hurt so it’s all ok in the end. (well maybe it looks like someone will be getting a new fence)

I took today off from stitching. I don’t have anything due until July 30th! Woo hoo! I did pick out my piece for HOE’s Summer House exchange. It’s going to finish up approx 6″ square. Anyone have any brilliant finishing ideas? I found a great pattern, I just have no idea how I’m going to finish it.

I also finished two projects and two books this weekend. Baby quilt & fair & square both have to wait until they’re with their new owners for pictures, but I’m really really happy with how they both turned out. Especially the quilt, I sent it through the washer & dryer – and it’s still in one piece! Go me!With the bonus, my 50 project challenge is now 20% complete.

I’m not too sure what I’m going to do tomorrow. I think I’ll go to Curves, drop off the recycling, clean up, and then head over to the LQS. I promised to show the finished quilt to the gal who helped me pick all the fabrics and I keep saying I’m going to go to their Sit & Stitch. I’m going to bring my second panel of Over The River (which I still haven’t started) and spend at least a hour working on it.

Cross stitch? I don’t know what I want to work on next. Caribbean? Salem Sisters? Summer House exchange? Autumn’s MiraRR? (and yes, I do realize I haven’t worked on ATS the past two Sundays) too… much… choice…. can’t…. function…

    Wow, how scary! I am so glad that your step-dad is ok and I hope he starts using his seatbelt regularly. He is really lucky! I have to remind my dad to put his on all the time. Whatever you pick to work on next…I can’t wait to see it! πŸ™‚

    Glad to hear your stepdad is ok. Can’t say the same for his truck!
    Ahh – to be so caught up and have such choices for what to stitch next.
    Look forward to seeing the quilt when it arrives at it’s new home!

    Glad to hear your step-dad is okay and no one got hurt.

    Hope I get to see more pics of your “Over the River” project… I like to live vicariously through those brave enough to try a bunch of different things! πŸ™‚

  5. WOW – picture’s worth a thousand words! Scary stuff, but thank goodness he’s OK. I can only imagine how your Mom felt when she got that call!

    OTR?!?!? Well, if you need to stitch, can’t you spend some additional time on that? Caribbean would be my second choice (no surprise). I’m dying to see the finished baby quilt.

    I’m so glad the news story had a good ending for your Step-Dad! Obviously – his lucky day.

    As for finishing – what about a box? I finished a design about 6″ square that way http://www.annettesacre.com/pics/exchanges/angi_exch_mm.jpg (Let me know if you want more detail. No glue was involved.)

    I vote Autumn’s RR for your stitching since I’m working on yours! (Winter RR is done – will be in the mail this week)

    Holy smokes, that looks scary! Poor Mike!

    What don’t you hold a poll every week and let us decide which one you stitch on the next week? ***evil grin***

    Wow! What a picture! Thank god no one was hurt! I can be no help on trying to help you out with what you should stitch. I can barely get there myself! LOL Just pick something that calls to you (of course, they’re probably all screaming, right)?
