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.
