Been a busy day.....


If I get too long winded on this post, I apologize in advance but it's been one of those days.  First off, I went to my LNS to pick up the Waterlillies for the Chatelaine Mini Mandelas I plan on starting soon and I also needed a really disgusting bright Halloween purple for a Halloween quaker I want to do for myself.  I took Vallie along because we were going to stop at Pet Smart afterwards to pick her up some of those chicken treats she just can't get enough of.  This trip went ok but then I received a phone call from our daughter, Jenn, that Wyatt our youngest grandson (6) broke his leg last nite.  Well this sent me into "grandma mode" and off I went.  I took Vallie home and started at the dollar store.  There I got puzzles, crayons, markers and coloring books.  From there it was Michaels to pick up all other kinds of goodies to keep a 6 year old entertained in bed for 6 weeks.  He might be able to go to school but Jenn hasn't been told yes or no yet.  I already had a box addressed and on the way home, stopped at P.O. to get it in the mail to the little one.  I just hope he heals fast and is able to get out of the cast in 6 weeks when the doc says.
The bright spot of the day was getting the above book in the mail today.  I saw this advertised on a different blog and thought it looked really interesting.  It's just me and dh and sometimes our grand daughter, Peyton, and I really don't like baking a large cake or whatever and this cookbook should come in handy.  She's taken all kinds of recipes and broken them down to feed only 1 or 2 people.  Great right?? Especially for me who is suppose to be on a diet.  
Oh I forgot to mention.....while in my LNS, she had just gotten in a new color of fabric.  It's called Chocolate Raspberry and I think it's by Wichelt.  The color is absolutely beautiful and my advice is check it out.  It's a beautiful neutral brown with a hint of pink.  Stunning!!  I already have her holding a fat quarter for me.  Where's that 12 step when I need it????  LOL  You might also want to check out Jardin Prive....she just added some new patterns to her website and they are to die for....especially the floral sampler.  
Well that's been my day.....not much stitching done but hopefully I'll be able to finish the JN Angel for my friends 3rd ornament for her kids tomorrow.  I might have to make a trip to Hobby Lobby to look for a bicycle charm in silver.  I looked at Michaels and no such luck.
I hope you got a lot of stitching time today and that pesty frog didn't show up on your doorstop.......
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Hope the little guy heals quickly. I did have some stitching time today, but the frog was more active than the needle. Chocolate raspberry? Oh my, that's a wonderful ice cream flavor at my local shop. I need to order that book.

So sorry to hear about your grandson's leg, but he's lucky to have a kind grandmother like you to send him a special box of goodies. You certainly had a busy day, can't wait to see that new fabric. Best wishes.

Oh dear, poor Wyatt - and poor Jenn - not a good way to go through summer for either one of them. Such a good Granny to send a sanity kit/activity kit for Mom and Wyatt. I'm sure he will be up and about in no time.
