I will start out with my finishes, a couple months ago I showed you the blanket that I was working on. It is intended as a gift for a friend at Christmas. It took longer to finish then usually because the heat we are having makes it all but impossible to have that laying on my lap. But it finally cooled off enough for me to finish it up.
My MPP's (multi-page projects) also have some finishes. The HEAD I have finished page 25. The DBCS (Death by Cross Stitch) I finished about 1 and 1/3 pages. I did this to complete the motif. And finally the Army Emblem I have about a page and 1/2 finished. I am working all 4 pages together so I do not have a single completed page but counting the grid you come up with my 1 1/2 page finish.
I am currently putting a new project into the mix I will start as soon as this update is complete. It is a Halloween design and I hope to have it complete for this years decorations. I will post pictures on my next update.
I had a bit of fun with some sales items I found at Michael's. I have been looking for a summer decoration that is not 4th of July themed and this fit the bill. Everything was 70% off and I must say I did a pretty nice job of setting it up.
Finally my baby turned 1 on July 31st. And what you may ask did I think was a good present for him.......well he got neutered. I would not have done it to him but the cat was getting a bit paranoid when he walked across he room. So he got the snip. They only had Monday open for the next 3 weeks and I just said well it needs done, birthday or not. He is just fine and happy as ever now but that day he was rather subdued
