Howling at the Moon update and Marine Ball photo

I am well into page 8 on this. I really wanted to be finished with this page by Nov. 15th but that didn't happen, so I guess my goal to finish this entire piece by Years End is not gonna happen! Oh well. And especially now with all the holiday hooplah going on...it's not gonna get done! So, I guess I will make a new goal: to have it finished by Valentines day 2012! That gives me plenty of time!


And now I will share a photo of me and my handsome hubby at the Marine Corps ball!




This isn't the greatest photo, as one of my eyes wouldn't adjust when I tried to fix red eye, so I have one red eye and one whatever-color-they-use-to-fix-red-eye-with eye. You can't see it, but the bottom of my dress has that dark blue sashing along the bottom as well. This is actually my wedding dress! I got it especially for the fact that it was sorta plain but would match his uniform, that way I could wear it on more than one occasion. I have now worn it three times, once to formal night on a cruise we went on, and once to The Air Force Ball, and now to this ball. I think for our next ball, I'm gonna buy a new dress. I am getting sick of this one! We'll see!




Well, incase I don't post before then, I hope that all my American readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday!! I pray it is filled with lots of good food, and friends and family!

Love seeing the pic of you and your DH at the ball. You make such a great couple! Your dress is lovely too -- but I can see how you might be sick of it. You're so close to a finish on Howling!

Howling looks fantastic! I never bother setting deadlines anymore because I know that I never stick with it. Life always gets in the way so I just kind of go with the flow now.
Lovely pic of the two of you! Hope you enjoyed the ball.

You make such a handsome couple, and you look so happy!

Howling is coming along great! I can relate how you might be tired of working on it. I am muddling through And they Sinned. It certainly does seem to bog down in areas.

Your stitching looks beautiful, Lana.
