Deer Happy Dance!


I have finished one of the deer I'm doing for DB and DBIL. I like the way this turned out. I'm going to go ahead and do the other one because I am using the same threads. It wasn't very hard to do and went very quickly! They both collect anything with deer on it.

I went to the Stitching Club last Fri. night and had a great time! There were about 12 women there and we talked and laughed and stitched. I felt very welcome and plan to continue going. They're having their Christmas party at the next meeting - so I will have to take some food, but they're not exchanging gifts. I'm so glad I finally found a stitching group I can go to. Everyone was about my age and we had a lot in common!

Chiloe wanted to know more about my son's accident. We're still not sure how he ended up in the lake. There were no witnesses. At first the detectives thought that he did it on purpose, but after they investigated and talked with everyone who knew him, they said they KNEW he didn't do it on purpose! He was getting ready for college and had several appointments the next week. He was too happy! There was alcohol involved - he had been drinking. They ruled it an accident - maybe he took a curve too fast and went off the road into the lake and couldn't get out of the car. I couldn't have survived if they had found it a suicide - I couldn't live if I thought his life was so bad that he would do that! But we still wonder how it happened!

DD and I went to Michael's today. I used their 50% off coupon and got the Janlynn Summer Sampler! I was so excited that they had it! I only have to get the winter one now! I'll probably never get them finished! lol But at least I have them to work on. I'm planning on taking the Autumn Sampler to work on at the Stitching Club. It meets the 2nd Fri. of each month. There is also a UFO night. It's every 4th Fri. of each month. I'm going to attend those, too. Lord knows I have a lot of UFOs!!

Better go! I want to get that 2nd deer started, plus I'm working on those ornaments for my friends and family. Oh, by the way, those ornaments are not in The Cross Stitcher. They are in the latest issue of Just Cross Stitch. I hope I didn't cause any problems for anyone! Have a great day, and may God bless you!

Great deer finish!

And I'm so envious of your Stitching Club! I wish I could find some stitching friends for a stitching session...even if it's just a few hours once a month or something. Surely I'm not the only stitcher in this area, but I have no idea how I would connect with anyone else.

Lovely deer :) COngrats!

Wow, a stitchy club. How lucky you are. There's nothing like that over here, so I alway have to sit alone at home stitching ...

YOu're really lucky to have a stitching club in your area. I like the UFO night. Seems all stitchers are the same ;-)

Lucky you, I have to drive 60 miles to stitch with a group, whether it is at my LNS or in the opposite direction (just as far) for ANG meetings once a month. Contratulations on your newest finish, & here's to more!!!
