Saturday Check-In

Good afternoon everyone.  Hope your weekend is going well and you're doing fun things.  I just found out I won a door prize from Ginny at Spooky Time Jingles.  Isn't this just the cutest Christmas Kitty?   
I also received the prize I won at SanManville from Twig.  It's the Beaded Rose chart from Just Nan.  This is such a lovely design and I plan on using some of the silk threads I have for it.  It's a small enough design to practice using silks.
I've been a busy stitcher lately. Since the next part of Castles in the Air has been delayed in being ready, I've been using the time to catch up on my OakHaven Languages of a Stitcher SAL. I've finally gotten through part 8. I haven't washed & ironed it yet, so it's still rather wrinkled.
It's been hot here lately.  Yesterday, it got up to 100 degrees and was miserable.  I'm staying inside in the cool air conditioning unless I absolutely HAVE to go out.  Good excuse to stitch, putz on the computer, nap & watch TV.  I don't really need an excuse, but thought it sounded good.  LOL  Well, that's it for now.  Thanks for visiting with me and hope you'll come again.  Have a great weekend!!!

Monday Update

I finished the 3rd part of Castles in the Air and am ready for the release of part 4 later this month.
Now I'm going to try to catch up on the other SALs I'm doing during this week.  And I'm also doing more organizing of my charts.  I got some binders and am putting charts in them according to the name of the designer (for designers that I have many charts from).  This will be much easier to find charts.  Well, this is going to be a short post, so I'll sign off for now.  Thanks for visiting.

Good Morning - even though it's Monday

I finished my SanMan Original SAL yesterday and am so thrilled with it.  Now just to decide how to finish it.
I'm still working on part 3 of my Castles sampler.  Am trying to get this part finished before part 4 comes out in approximately 2 weeks. 
***********************************
Now, did yall see the Nascar race yesterday?  WOW, what a finish.  Jimmie & Tony sure made it exciting.  I was jumping up & down and yelling and yessiree - my driver WON!!!!  Go Jimmie!!!!

I've gotta get my car inspected today.  It was actually due in May, but I procrastinated and now I HAVE to do it or risk getting a ticket. 
***********************************
I'm in the process of trying to figure out yahoo messenger.  I really hate new technical things I have to learn.  lol  I got it downloaded and have my account all set up.  Now to get connected with others, so I'll be ready for the online chat this weekend with the OakHaven group.  Thank heaven there are nice ladies there willing to help out those of us who are a somewhat dense.
