september 28 - two SALs

So, I have been in the midst of chaos since Sunday night trying to empty out the closets in our upstairs rooms. I don't know why I thought it would be easier...I mean, I knew I had a huge amount of stuff, but it was even worse than I thought...way worse! So now the floors are cleared, the shelves are cleared, and the bathrooms are stuffed with boxes and bags! Luckily, Jeff is on his way home from his conference and we are both off tomorrow, so we can do all the last minute things. He'll be home Friday when the guys come to actually install the carpet...I can't wait. I vow never to let things get to this point again. If they do, please lock me in a little room and don't let me out! I have made lots of discoveries though...patterns that I didn't think I owned so bought another, lots of freebies that really do have to be sorted, lots of designs I know I will never ever stitch, and lots of treasures that I was so excited to see. I see a big sale or lots of giveaways in my future!

I remembered that yesterday was the new moon, but didn't remember until this morning around 4am...so here is my pathetic TUSAL offering. All those blue threads on the top are the new ones. Before Sunday, there was like one little thread in my bowl, but on Sunday I got all caught up with Carol's SAL so I was able to have at least a little something to show. While stitching Part 4, I realized I was off one stitch in Part 2, so had lots of frogging to do...but now I am all caught up. Carol re-sized the photo for me, but I can't seem to get it over here to the blog, so please check out her blog to see my progress and all the other wonderful pieces that are being stitched. And here is my totally useless SAL for this month...


Thanks for taking the time to visit!

  2. Oh, I know it was no fun clearing out those closets but the new carpet should make up for it especially since you found some forgotten treasures in those closets!

  3. Isn't it amazing what you can find when you are organizing your stash? Enjoy your new carpet and your newly organized craft room.

  4. I hope it gets better and worth it all! We want to get new carpet early next year and I'm worrying already about all the closet "stuff". It's neatly organized but taking it out is freaking me out.

  5. OOh; love your my fav. kitten--that one is on my must-stitch list! Glad to hear that you found some great little treasures. :D

    I know that "Never Let me Allow it to get to this point Again" feeling.

  6. Typical, they say they will help and then vanish, lol! What a shame about the frogging, I had the most difficult time with the bird and the branch, I could NOT get it right! Love Val's needle book?
