I have decided to share my love of fortune cookie quotes with you. Having six people in our family gives me a handful of fortunes each time we have Chinese food. I personally like to save them when they strike a note. It always seems like the fortune can be applied to the person that opens it. So today's fortune is
"Look around happiness is trying to catch you"
Have a wonderful weekend and may you get in lots of stitching!

I wanted to give this it's own post. Isn't it darling. I won this on Trillium Creates a little while back and recieved it last week. It really brightened my day. It amazes me how talented all of you blogging stitchers are and to share that makes it so special. Thank you Marie.
Thank you for your comments on my last post. I wanted to let you know that I did change the colors on LHN October and Sept sampler. I used Chili Pepper, Peapod, Ye old golde, Copper penney, Roasted Chestnut and Catepillar. Happy Stitching.

I spent Sunday at the Rotary Club Fleamarket. They hold this event at the local Fairgrounds and there were tons of vendors. Some stuff great, some stuff junk. It takes lots of patience to sift through. My older boys wanted to come along to treasure hunt but became bored very quickly. Next time I may have to venture out on my own so I can poke around all I want. Even so, I did find some treasures.

|Hey, wake up it's time to play!|
On the stitching front, very slow progress. When did our childrens homework become such a part of our lives. I mean really. I don't think my parents ever checked my homework. All of a sudden the responsiblity is on us as parents to make sure the children do their homework, keep tidy binders, help them safely surf the web for info, create iMovies, powerpoints etc. (All of this was suggested at the various open houses this week. The also post all homework on the web so that parents can look up what is do. What?? Really??) I think I need to go back to college to get a degree in parenting (and schooling)! Do they even offer that anywhere?? Needless to say stitching is taking a back seat and as you can tell from the tone of this post I think I'm getting CRANKY! Hopefully I will get my stitching in this weekend. Happy Friday Everyone! Keep on Stitching!

I was a busy mom of 3 boys with my 4th well on his way. I was waiting for the sitter to arrive and was tidying up. I remember the day well. It will forever be etched in my mind. My son's 2nd birthday was that day. It is so bitter sweet to have a birthday on 9/11. He has difficulty understanding why I try to keep it low key. I have trouble celebrating because we lost a dear family friend. He was young, newly married, and a brand new dad. I feel for his daughter who will only know him through other peoples memories. I feel for his mom who never got closure and for anyone else who has a family member or friend that died on 9/11 and their bodies were not recovered. I still feel gloom and despair when I think of this day that happened 9 years ago.
I want to thank all of the service men and women who continue to fight for our freedom from terrorist. I wish them safety.

|LHN Snowy Pines|
Natural Raw Linen
|I have had zero time to blog since school started. Everything is super busy. We are trying to get into a routine here for the homework, bus schedules, activities, etc. I have had little time to stitch except at Wednesday group. My Peacock Pinkeep progress is slow but I do like the color substitutions. I think it will look really great when it's finished. Right now I am trying to finish LHN Monthly Sampler Sept and October. I am on an auto ship for this but I just got them September 7th. Thats a story for another day. I am also getting ready for the New England Stitchers Retreat in October. I was kindly asked to co-host this wonderful event. I spent the weekend with Marie fromABC Stitch putting together wonderful goody bags. I can't what to meet Thea and the retreat attendees. I am looking forward to this event. Until next time, Happy Stitching! Thank you to all who follow my blog. Your comments mean so much! If you are interested in a kitten update I promise pics and news tomorrow. Gotta run for now!|
