Some finishes finally!
It has been a few weeks since I have been here but I have been keeping busy as well. First off the last time I blogged I mentioned we were going away for a few days. That was a wonderful time and everything went great. We did not do as we planned to but it still was a fun time just the 2 of us and nothing else! Ohio has been having a heck of a spring here lately. Since March the weather here has been decent. It has been in the 70's a lot of days and the last few weeks a lot of days in the 80's. Of course this would be the year that we have a big warm up in spring like that when I still do not have a working air conditioner for the living room. We will by June though. I just have to finish saving up for it. We ended up having a spot of good luck this week which put some extra money in the bank and left us with some money to get some things here that were broken and needed to be repaired like a new Lawnmower since we did not have one, a flat screen tv for the living room since the other one died last week and some money to work on the car. We could have gotten the ac this week as well but I wanted to use some of the extra money for bills and not all on shopping. Mike has been pulling in some crazy hours here as well. This time of year business is booming where he is at so he has been offered a lot of overtime and he has been taking it. There have been days where he pulled a 14 hour day in or like on Sunday he leaves at 1pm and I will not see him until 6am Monday morning. The extra money will be great but I will be glad when all of this is done too because he has been home very little and he already has a lot on his plate now as it is.
I have 2 finishes to share. Both are from Curtis Boehringer. The first is from the 3 for 2 club and it is the April design this is so simple to stitch in a matter of hours this is done. I also finished up my April angel from the barefoot angels of the month club. I like the way the stitching turned out but I always have an issue with deciding on what to do with them when it comes time to finishing them off and then at times I am not happy with my finishing either. Thanks for stopping by and of course all of your comments. They are always appreciated!
