Update on Guardian Angel

This is my progress on the guardian angel. I worked on it most of yesterday. I did a little on Patchwork Garden, but not enough to show yet. I haven't been able to stitch any today. I decided not to do my shopping yesterday, because I was afraid I would be too tired and wouldn't enjoy our outing to the Chinese restaurant. So I did my "marathon shopping" today. I take one day a week or so and do all my shopping for groceries, stash, medicines, etc. I'm trying to save money by using coupons and taking advantage of sales.

I do let myself buy about $10.00 worth of stash each month. I got some white aida at Michael's with a 40% off coupon; and I got some marbled aida at A.C. Moore with a 40% off coupon. The marbled aida is kind of a bluish green. I'm going to do a fairy on it - someday! lol The white aida is for my charity stitching.

Yesterday was DD's Dad's birthday and we took him out to a Chinese restaurant. We had a very good time. Yesterday was also his mother's birthday, and his whole family went to a fish camp tonight to celebrate her birthday. So I'm here alone - which hasn't happened in quite a while! I enjoy being alone sometimes! However, I spent most of the time on the phone with my mom. I'm planning to visit her tomorrow. It was so nice not to cook dinner yesterday or today. I had a leftover plate for supper tonight.

Better go - I want to do a little stitching before bedtime! Have a day full of happy moments, and may God bless you!
