3) On each full moon (or thereabouts), post your progress photos to your site – even if your progress was slower than you hoped. Label that post with “WIPocalypse” to make it easy for Measi to find.

4) Once you’ve posted, come over to her blog and find her full moon post, and comment that you’ve updated. I will create a check-in list of URLs each month for easy blog surfing so fellow participants and readers can cheer you on.

Is the weekend over yet???

OMG! What a weekend! Hubby had to work from home this weekend as a deadline is fast approaching. Saturday morning he spent outside working on his laptop on conference calls. (I stitched on Winter Spirit Fairy for the PR sal.) That afternoon we went to my nephew's 17th birthday party. When we got home that night we only had power to half the house. During our search trying to find out what was wrong we discovered that a tree in the backyard had come down & the only thing holding it up was the electrical lines. So that made for a long night as the power company was here until 3 in the morning fixing everything.
On Sunday we spent the day taking down the rest of the tree & cutting everything up. Then we had to run to a couple of stores for some more supplies. I am so glad the weekend is over! I did get some more stitching in Sunday evening, though.

Weekly Update

Sorry that I'm a day late. Yesterday we took the kiddos to Cedar Point. I am so sore today. Good news my new Ott Lite came yesterday! Yeah! My old one broke when we were moving. It's black so it's matches the other lamps in the living room. I found it on ebay for $54.00 from Ken's Sewing. He ships for free & has reasonable prices. It was new in the box.

Here is my progress so far on Moonlight Lullaby for Susan's piece of the Mira RR 2011.
Thanks so much for looking.

Weekly Update (8/8/11)

I have gotten a lot done on Stargazer! I am having a blast stitching on her! Part of me doesn't want to put her done but I have to start & finish my piece for the Mira RR.

It was a nice week last week. I pulled the wallpaper down in the stairwell to the basement. I got the holes puttied & sanded & the first layer primer up. Little Paul turned 13 on Friday. We had a family party for the family birthday's in August (& my sister's that was the end of July.)

August Goals & SG progress

I met all of my goals for July!!! For August my goals are:
1. Start & finish the next Midnight Lullaby for the Mira RR.
2. Finish the next section of beading for SG.
3. Finish the bottom of the skirt on WFS during the PR sal weekend.

I did get to stitch on SG for a couple of days last week after finishing July's part for the Mira RR.
