A week?

Yeah, I guess it has been a week. In my defense I have been busy.

1. Finished September’s HoHRH block! Only 3 left. I can hardly believe the end is in sight.

I even ironed it for picture time. Wow, I think I’m getting sentimental about this piece already.

2. I’m employed again. I’m back at Curves 2 days a week. This time it’s Wednesday & Friday 6am – 1pm. Hopefully this shift will work out. And the occasional Weight Management Class too.

3. My tickets are bought for Quilt Festival. I meant to buy them weeks ago, but I forgot the time I went in and this weekend I finally stopped by the shop again. It wasn’t a huge deal, you can buy your tickets at the Convention Center – but this way I’m 90% ready to go. I want to go downtown one day and scope out the hotel/parking lot/one way streets etc. Last year when I went I wasn’t the driver and I’ll feel a little better if I practice first.

4. It seems I’m spending more time planning the 13 Days giveaway than actually doing anything. But any progress is still progress.

5. Have you been watching the new releases from Market? All those Halloween designs are KILLING ME! And remember Eeek! House? Well if you love it, but can’t face the thought of all those knots… it’s now released as a cross stitch!

Who knows how much I’ll be posting in the beginning of October, it’s going to be very busy around here and I doubt I’ll be able to share many if any finishes with you all.

Oh and in the happy happy joy joy news; my favorite cousin called me today – she’s preggers again! It’s way early but if all goes well Parker will have a baby brother or sister come June.

(still doesn’t take the sting of another f’in Steelers loss)

    Houses look fabulous. What an awesome piece.
    The new releases are killing me too, lol

  3. Valerie says:

    Great progress Missy…the end is truly in sight. You’ll be finished in no time! Congrats to your cousin on her great news too. I’m trying not to pay attention to market releases. There’s a lot of stuff I like…just not sure if the like with grow to love and then buy. Probably will…

    So many great releases this market. It’s taking a *lot* of willpower to resist. The big test will be next weekend at the LNS’ market day on Saturday morning! I did pre-order Christmas HRH piece πŸ™‚

    17 Days until I get on a plane!! πŸ™‚

  5. Gabi says:

    Congrats on finishing another square. Looks awesome. And yes, the new releases are a huge temptation. I’ll order the CHRH piece πŸ™‚
    Wishing you heaps of fun at the quilt show

    Good job on HOHRH girl. You are staying well on track. Good for you. I am NOT looking at the new releases. I really need to get a hold on my stash .
    Have a wonderful time at the quilt show.

    Huge Congratulations on Block #9. You’re making me so jealous with your progress! I’m trying to stay away from anything that talks about Market! It’s been hard and I just know that I’m going to fall off the wagon.

  8. JenJen3574 says:

    Wow your HoHRH piece is really speeding toward the finish – I’m so impressed. I haven’t done one of them mostly cause I think I’d peeter out on it. Yours looks awesome. πŸ™‚

  9. Melissa says:

    Yay! To finishing another HOHRH block. One block closer to finished. If I can finish it anyone can, trust me!

  10. Yay! for another block done! It might be my favorite. I’m hiding from all the market relase newsletters. After my SF binge, I need to behave a little.

  11. Michelle says:

    My October is going to be hella busy too. Hoping to still get some stitching in though! Love love love how your HRH piece is coming along…sooooo close.

  12. Siobhan says:

    Your Cast Your Spells finish is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the coolest finishing job–omg. You must be so psyched with it! Too freakin’ cool.

    YGG on your HoHRH! Isn’t it great to be on that last row?! It feels like the end is in sight, at long last.

    This Market is killing me. Really killing me. I find myelf scouring the Internet for more pics of new stuff yet hoping that I won’t like anything. Sweet agony!

  13. doris says:

    Oooh, HoHRH is looking great. The last row will be done in no time, thanks to your speed-demon stitching.

    Market means “get your money ready, girls”, so I’m trying to choose sparingly. I’m so full of it.
