A finish and a wonderful trip to KY

Last Thursday, my husband, stepdaughter, grandson, and I flew to KY so that Aiden could celebrate his third birthday with family. It was a great trip. It snowed the first night we were there. Tim, my husband, and Jessie played out in the snow.It was only the second time they had seen snow. The next morning Jessie and Aiden went out and played in the snow for a bit.

Tim, Jessie, and I had lunch with my great friends, Dianna and Cheryl at Texas Roadhouse in Ashland on Friday afternoon. It was great spending time with my friends.

Saturday afternoon we had a birthday party for Aiden. His birthday was the 23rd. Little monkey is now 3 years old.My brother Arnold visited and it is him in one of the top pics.

It was a super time in the KY. Then, I came home and yesterday finished my Prairie Schooler Santa 2001! Yeah me! Speaking of Prairie Schooler, when I hit that 50 followers mark, I have a schooler santa and a schooler amish pattern to give away! Thanks for reading and I really appreciate all of the comments!

Belated Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. A new year always brings in new goals and wishes. This year, I have several stitching goals.

Goals for 2011: I would like to complete 4-6 blocks of Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. I would like to finish my wip-Monticello. I bought Monticello on vacation last summer, I also, bought four more historic kits on vacation that I would like to start when I finish Monticello. Another goal is to do several prairie schooler patterns. I have been buying quite a few of late and I actually started a Schooler Santa today. My last goal is to actually stitch some of the hand towels, bread covers,etc. that I have bought over the years. My goals are realistic and should be achievable.

I did end 2010 and begin 2011 on a positive note. I finished stitching "gentle and kind" by LHN for my stepdaughter and I have safely delivered it to the framer's. I finished Aiden's birth sampler today. It is about time. He will be 3 on Jan 24! I would have finished on Friday but I had some back stitching to do.

Tomorrow is back to work,so my stitching time will be more limited but I will get in what I can. Thank you to everyone that reads this post and to those of you that leave comments. I hope everyone has the most healthy, peaceful, new year possible.
