Backstitching Belle

This is my progress on Belle for Veronica's quilt at Cole's Quilts. I spent last Sunday with my mom, and I stitched a good bit of the border at her house. Then I have been able to stitch a couple of hours each evening this week. I subbed Mon., Tues., and today at an elementary school. I covered for the music teacher. She had left videos for me to show; so it was a very easy job! The kindergarten and 1st grade students were so cute! I haven't gotten a job for tomorrow. I'm planning on just being lazy and stitching!

While I had the kindergarten kids, the fire alarm went off. I was afraid I was going to lose all the little kids! But, luckily, their teacher and aide found us and helped me. Firetrucks came and everything! I found out after school that they think one of the students pulled the fire alarm!

Our Walmart must be going to stop stocking cross stitch supplies; they have their DMC skeins for $0.10 each! I bought almost 70 skeins today! I got every color I was missing and a lot of colors that I know I use a lot! I plan to go back and get some more! The clerk said, "I have to swipe each one," and acted like she didn't want to do it. I told her it was okay; I had plenty of time! They're not restocking them; so they are out of a lot of the most popular colors.

It's been a while since I started this post. Our computer moniter has broken down, and I can't afford to get another one right now! I'm at another school right now. This is a middle school band class, and they aren't the best behaved class.

I've finished Belle and almost have her ready to be mailed. I've started another charity square. It's a horse for Rachel at Love Quilts. I'm really enjoying this square. It's not very hard, and it's going very quickly! I can't show a pic right now. I'll show it as soon as we get a new monitor.

I went to the doctor with my mom yesterday. She had to have a cat scan. The doctor said that in an xray he took of her heart it looked like her aorta artery is twisted. Please pray that everything is okay! I'm not ready to lose her, too. My son died 2 years ago, and my dad died 10 months after my son.

The class that's in here right now is very good! We're watching a video; so this should be a very easy day!

I've missed reading your blogs and comments! It's terrible when you don't have a computer! Since this is a school computer, it won't let me access my email! I'd better go and watch these kids! Have a day full of happy moments and may God bless you!

I have been subbing some. I can do 7 days a month and worked my Sept. quota, and I am signed up for most of my Oct. days.
I like the work you have been doing on the stitching. I have been trying to keep my head above water, and havn't been blogging at all on this site.
