Well, here is Nov. Quilt, it is now at 65 hours, and I think it is really looking great! From here on out it is alot of fill in. I am almost done with the pumpkins and yet i still have a lot of green to put in, but it is just half stitches, so should go quickly.
I have been pretty busy so haven't been blogging much lately, as last Friday I got my drivers license! Yay for me! It is SOOOO embarrassing, but here I am almost 29 years old and not having one yet, but I have always had a sort of phobia of driving. When I was about 12 years old I was in a car accident with my mom. We were not hurt or anything, but it shook me up quite badly. and then when I was a teeneager, just about the time I was going to take driver's ed, and stuff, a family friend of ours died in a car accident, she was only 16 years old so...nope! No way was I getting behind the wheel. Well, then I got out of high school, and thought I would go get my permit, and did, and after a few times out driving I saw another HUGE accident, there were people laid out covered up, dead. I took that car home and never tried again.
That was about 10 years ago,and I have always had someone to take me wherever I wanted, or needed to go. But with DH leaving for the middle East here in a little less than a month, I would have been stranded. So, I pushed myself to get it. And I did! And I have driven to work all last weekend, and sunday I didn't work but took the car out and hung out with a friend. And now I can't believe I waited so long! So, anyway, I have been busy, but as you can see, I have gotten in a little bit of stitching on Nov. Quilt. I am so close! I didn't make it for my mom's b-day, it was on Sunday (the 23rd) She is coming out to visit in July, while DH is gone, so I am thinking about maybe having it done for her then. It gives me a few more months! Plus, we shall hope that by then my dad's gift will be done too!
Well, I think I am going to go sit and do some more stitching, and read some more blogs before having to get ready for work. Bye!
