Firetruck Update

All I have to do now is the backstitching, and this will be on its way to Love's Quilt for Elijah's quilt. I haven't stitched much the last few days - too tired after substituting! I've been at a very good school, and the classes were great! I'm planning on staying home tomorrow and catching up on my stitching!

I was able to do a little shopping after school yesterday! I used 50% off coupons and got the stash above from Michael's and AC Moore. I've barely started the Autumn Sampler, but I want to get all 4 of the samplers. I really wanted the Summer Sampler next, but they didn't have it. So I got the Spring Sampler. At half price, it was only $12.50. I really liked the Christmas book - like I don't have a million Christmas patterns already! lol It was only $3.50.

I have a sports square to do for Fletcher at Love Quilts. I'm going to do it next, and then I'm going to stitch for MYSELF!!

Everything's going okay at home. Jerry finally sold the house at Hilton Head, but he is losing money on it! At least, we'll have it off our minds now! Katie is doing great at college. The dogs are all fine, except they get very upset when I get up early to sub!

Better go! I'm going to get started on that backstitching! Have a day full of happy moments, and may God bless you!

Wow! It looks great. You stitched that up fast for all the detail in it.
My dad would love it, he was a volunteer fireman and chief for almost 40 yrs.
