It is finished!

28 ct white Monaco, DMC
I finished this a few minutes ago and just love it. I bought this in 1999 at my first PALS retreat. I finally pulled it out this year. My plan is to frame it.

SATURDAY:
Went to the Farmers Market and this Saturday is the last one til next Summer :-(
Then Scott and I went to my bookcross meeting. Karen and her husband were the only ones there. I called my dad, to see if my mom was coming. She was with a friend. My dad was upset though as their beloved dog was hit and killed. Both of my parents are upset but my dad is worse. He took her everywheres with him and she helps him with his depression. Even helped him when he was recuperating from a couple of surgeries. She was around 5 years old. he is blaming himself as he knew she goes in the road, and he didn't tie her up. I will miss her as well.

After the meeting Scott and I went to Home Depot to get the 2 shelves that I wanted for my craft room. Bins were set up on the shelves.
Dinner time we went my Scott's parents to make sure they took their meds and to eat dinner.
Came home and stitched all night while Scott slept.

SUNDAY:
I hate grocery shopping by myself. Justin and Scott were working and Dylan, as you know, is in PA.
Got my Cross stitch projects in the bins then sat down and stitched while watching TV.

Watched:
Supernatural 10/1
The Vampire Diaries 10/7
Nikita 10/7
Smallville 10/8
Desperate Housewives

Tomorrow I plan on putting some of my Halloween Decorations out. Will start stitching a new Halloween piece with Pumpkins, for the Pumpkin challenge with Becky SC.

Always feels great to finish something and even more awesome when it is a UFO.

Cute finish! Congrats!

Sorry to hear about your dad's dog...how terrible! Always sad when a pet we love is taken away so tragically. *hugs*

Nice finish! I love the green eyes. Grocery shopping is always more fun if someone goes with you. I'm so sorry to hear about your parents pup. Our pets really do become part of our family.

Congratulations on your finish Shelleen! I have this one in my stash but doubt I ever get around to it!

Sorry to hear about the furbaby. It's so hard to lose them.

Hooray for a fabulous finish!!

Sorry about your Dad's dog - worse that he blames himself.

Actually, I prefer going to the grocery by myself. If I take Bill along it always costs me more - LOL!!

This turned out so great Shelleen. So sorry about your parent's dog. The same thing happened to my cousin and he blamed himself too. I guess it's hard not to but I hope your dad finds peace with it and remembers only the good things.
