Happy Fall!

Good Saturday morning everyone!  I hope everyone has had a nice relaxing week of work and are ready to have a great weekend.

The kids have had Thursday and Friday off of school so it's thrown Logan's schedule off just a wee bit.  Truly it doesn't matter all that much in the grand scheme of things.  He lets me know when he's ready to get work done so it's all good.  It didn't help that we left his DVD player plugged in Thursday night and first thing yesterday he was watching a movie.  You can't get him to do much when he has the chance to control the DVD/TV. lol   I remembered to unplug it last night so we should be starting some school work momentarily, which is why I'm taking these few minutes to write something.

I've spent the past week doing the normal cleaning, laundry, schooling and added getting his school work ready for October.  I'm still working on the laminating and cutting and hopefully will be done by this afternoon.  I've also been making myself spend about 45 minutes each morning stitching whatever I happen to pick up.  Currently, I'm busy stitching the kids a halloween ornament.  Since I let them each pick out one that they wanted me to make for them last year I thought we'd make it a yearly tradition.  By the time they move out they will have enough ornaments for  a small halloween tree for their own appartment/house. 

I finished my LHN Little House Neighborhood and I had to laugh at myself.  I don't know what I was doing or thinking when I started it over a year ago but it's clear I wasn't thinking straight.  I had to skip doing the border and the bottom part as I had a brain fart and didn't calculate the amount of fabric needed.  I realized what I had done by the time I was finished with the first house but since I had spent so much time stitching it I went ahead and finished.  It still looks good but I may end up stitching it again in a couple of years but this time, I will be sure to calculate the fabric better. LOL

I have about a half hour, if I'm lucky, before Logan will want to start working so I think I will put some more stitches in his ornament.  I will try to get some pictures of the ornaments I have finished so far and one of the LHN piece for the next post.  Until then, have a wonderful fall weekend no matter where you are located.  Our fall weather won't hit for another month or two.  We had temps in the upper 80's, low 90's yesterday so if you are feeling nice, please send some crisp air our way. lol

Have a great weekend!

I've so many mis-calculations that I can understand your situation. The adjustments that we have to make makes our stitchings unique, don't you agree? :D Have a great day!
