2 progress pics

I had a pretty busy weekend. Dylan came home late Thursday night/early Friday morning. I did manage to put in a few stitches on HAED QS Fragile Heart.
Saturday was quite busy. I had a BookCross meeting at lunch time. I always enjoy them. I gave away 2 books and came home with 1.
The reason that Dylan came home this weekend was for his girlfriend's senior prom. His roommate even came out for the prom. Allie(Dylan's girlfriend) had a friend without a date for the prom so Dylan's roommate went and he had a great time even though he didn't know one person there, except for Dylan.

They had a great time.

Today the 4 of us went grocery shopping. What fun since my car doesn't have a big trunk and we went to 3 stores. Let's just say my 2 door car had groceries on top of Allie's and Joe's laps in the back seat lol.      
Dylan and Joe left here around 6:30 and should be back in PA around midnight.
This coming weekend will be busy as my sister, DH, Allie and I are going to visit Dylan and hopefully do some sightseeing in Philly.

So after they lefy I was able to sit and stitch tonight. I only stitched for 2 hours but it felt good and since it was Sunday, it was Halloween day. Here is It's Halloween by The Drawn Thread. I am so close to the edge of the fabric. I will have to finish it as a bellpull, when it is done and will have to stitch on extra fabric on the ends. I don't know happened when I measured since I check it so many times.

Great picture of your son, his g/f and you of course. You forgot to take a pic of Allie and Joe loaded with the
Your stitching looks great. What a bummer that the fabric is too small.

How terrible that the fabric is too small. Love the piece though.

Handsome son you have there Shelleen!

Sorry about the shortage on the fabric. Must be going around as another friend of mine has the same issue only she has to throw hers as there is not even enough fabric to finish the design.

FH is looking good!

Stitching looks great. Hey I'm pulling out my clay again to get this stuff ready for Vikki Claytons Exhibit. I'll see if I can figure out a shamrock for that needle minder I promised you EONS ago!

Lovely stitching, Shelleen and I'm sorry about the fabric on your Halloween stitch... I'm sure it's going to work out perfectly in the end and it's going to be beautiful as a bellpull!

Lovely photos of you and your family... looks like y'all were having a wonderful time.
