A Giveaway and a little update


You might want to check out this Giveaway over at My Life in Stitches in celebration of her 100th post. Read her blog too. That's a great excuse for a giveaway but I'm not sure I have even that many posts. I'll check :)))

I thought I'd update this past week's CJC start. I lost the mojo for the last 4 days. We had my daughter's birthday party Saturday afternoon, so we spent the whole morning up to a few minutes before everyone showed up, cleaning. She'll be 17 on Monday (where has the time gone?!). She had 4 friends over, ate pizza, cake and ice cream, and then watched Paranormal Activity 3. Then I left them to themselves with the XBox and went to bed! Anyway here's my update
That was my first day of stitching on this. As you can see, I haven't done much to it!

I have already picked out my start for Monday, also a CJC start for the 9th day. This is where I left off

Antique Locks and Keys

I will only have the evenings to stitch on this. We are going to the Renaissance Festival outside of Phoenix tomorrow, Presidents Day. I think it's in or outside of the city called Apache Junction. We've been going there almost every year for the last 6 or 7 years. Some years I just can't afford it because I have to rent a car to get there. My car is strictly a local transportation car! It is so much fun! I have an interest in Medieval/Renaissance times and it's so cool to see everyone in period dress. We tend to eat a lot (but I don't like the big Turkey legs they sell) and there are several stages to watch comedy, juggling, acting and other stuff. They also have a dungeon-like building where you find all the torture equipment that was used during those times. Very interesting! They also have a large arena with jousting. We enjoy it. Some years the weather is in the 70's and sunny, but it's only supposed to be about 67 or 68 w/overcast skies tomorrow. I forgot what it's like to be in that kind of weather, as it's been 48 to 54 degrees here for the last couple of weeks. I'm taking my camera but judging by some of my photos here on the blog, I'm not sure if it'll work!

Take care and Thank You for the comments! Have a great week!

  1. Wish I could go to the Renaissance Festival too. But it's a bit of a drive from Tucson. Have a good time and don't eat too much! Might try to get up there before its all over.
