Is it really Sunday?

Another long week. (Are there any other kind?) Still fighting off this sinus infection. I was the party coordinator for Maria's class Halloween party. So I had phone calls to make to get everything organized. A couple of field trips I helped with this week. On top of that we are switching the kids' rooms. (I'll post pics when they're done.) As promised, here are the picture of the DR curtains.

Maria put up some spider webs for Halloween. I got these webs that glow in the dark under a black light. She did such a great job putting them up.

For Trick or Treat Paul went as A Dementor from Harry Potter. Maria went a zombie pirate. A friend of Maria's went as Alice zombie. (I still have to dl the pics.) Hope everyone had a great Halloween weekend!

IHSW & Weekend Activities

Another full weekend! I made 2 charts for friend's houses for Christmas. I was hoping to get them both stitched this weekend. I got the first almost all finished when Hubby & both agreed that we didn't like the look of the floss so I frogged it & am restitching it in a different color.

The black is the new color. The red, white & blue is a silk I had from HDF. It just didn't look how I wanted. I am now planning on all black with flames on the side.

I'm putting it up for a few days though so I can stitch on my mermaids for the Mira sal on Love 4 Stitch-a-longs.

On to more personal events. On Saturday we went to the local Harley store so Hubby could look around & see if he wanted anything with his gc he got last week for his birthday. He got a light up fuel gauge for his bike. (Now we have to get the matching fuel cap though.) I also got treated as I found a 3/4's helmet on clearance. I can now replace my full helmet as it would get to heavy & hurt my neck on longer rides.

From there we went to Lowe's to get replacement gutters. Of course we made some detours while at the store. I got our new drapes & rods for the DR. I want to get the room finished! Maria also picked out new curtains & rods for her room as well.

On Sunday we went to St V's for there open house as this is were Jr wants to go to HS next year. It was a very nice time & our tour guide (Hannah; JR) did a very good job. Jr really liked it so fingers crossed for his placement test on Nov 5th. Then we went to the JC Penney outlet so we could get Jr a coat for this winter. (For some reason the one we bought last year doesn't fit. Couldn't have anything to do with the 8" he grew this year.) I also wanted to get Maria a pair of snow boots but they didn't have anything. However Hubby did find a new sweater.

My first give away

In celebration of Halloween I have decided to have a give away. I am going to give away Black Cat, a scissor fob that I just made. The cat charm is made with Swarovski crystals.

If you would like to be entered just leave a comment below. I will close this & draw the winner on Oct. 21st. I will chose the winner as fairly as possible, or in other words, my 10 yo daughter will draw a name.

I am also adding more of my scissor fobs to Etsy. Please check out my page and let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking!
