Finally..... A FINISH!

Taaa Daaa; a finish!

I can't believe it! I'm finally finished with the Astros project for the hubby from the kids. Now to get it to Michael's and have it framed. Well, that could take another while to get accomplished but I'm just happy to be done.

I've started on the Under the Sea project again and was on such a roll I didn't want to put it down to start the SAL from one of my groups. I know, I know; I said I wanted to get it started and it didn't matter about the sea project. I was finished with the Astros project late one evening and the game was still on and rather than take the time to pull all the materials I just grabbed up the sea project and jumped back in. It was going so well that I didn't want to put it back down because I'm in sight of the light at the end of the tunnel (finish!) Of course, life always gets in the way with four little ones. I've not touched any stitching in about a week now as next week school starts back up. YEAH!

I've had to go through all the new school clothes and get the older two to try them on. Okay, just Marie as Logan didn't stand still long enough to try anything on. I was lucky to get him still long enough to hold a shirt up to him to see if it was too big. Marie was patient and stood still through it all. (It has something to do with new clothes and being impatient to see all her school friends again after a long summer!) I washed a mound or two of clothes and put off putting them away because that was another fun project. Pull all the clothes out of their dresser to see what still fits and what had to be put away for their smaller siblings. I have a bag of clothes from Katie's dresser to give away and the rest is put away for them.

I'm hoping to get some sit down time today to work on the sea project and to pull out the materials for the SAL. I'm also thinking I might like a small project that would/should be a quick finish. I received a birthday freebie biscornu pattern from one of my groups and I've been itching to give it a try. They say they are easy to make and once you do one you'll want to do a lot more. I guess it just depends on my mood on the day I finally get to sit down and start something new. It might have to wait until next week after the major fall cleaning happens when the older kids are back in school. I will keep you posted and get a picture of the sea on here.
