Wow! It's been a while!

Wow! Life has just been crazy busy! Not much time for going on the computer and blogging. As my daughter gets older, she is more demanding of my time, so I spend alot more time with her and less time on the computer! So, apologies for my absence! It's like I posted those last two finishes and said "Ok, I'm done!" and never came back!

But as you know me and the hubs have been working out regularly, to a program called P90. And boy is it crazy intense! But I wanted to share a cute photo of my hubby and daughter! It is so cute! When we work out, she tries to do the exercises with us!!! So, here is Hubby and his new personal trainer!

And now onto Stitchy business! So, I made the decision to 1) fill in Howling at the Moon's spot with The Abby, and here is my progress on it! The work I've done in the past few weeks has mostly been all those clouds on the right hand side, which I am almost finished with! So that is pages 1,2,4 and 5 complete, and 3 almost complete. So I still have 6,7,8, and 9 to finish. The last time I posted this was in June of 2010! Almost two years!! Which would explain the rust stain...yup, stupid me, I left my needle in my fabric and it rusted, so if you have any good ideas on how to get those two tiny rust marks out of my fabric I'd appreciate any tips! Thanks!
And 2) I decided to fill in "Patchwork Bear's spot with a new start! I know! I'm so bad! But oh well! I decided to start The birdhouse series (three in the series) I think it's called "Sweet Re-tweet" or something. And I will be sharing photos of that progress in my next project!

Well, I do hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I am planning to, my hubby is going snorkeling tomorrow if the weather is good, so I have all day to stitch!!! Yippeee! Which is good, because it's my SAL weekend with Jules!!! So Probably on Monday I will share that and my progress on Sweet Re-tweet!
Til next time, happy stitching!

Drip some fresh lemon juice on hte rust stain ,then pour on a little salt . Leave to soak for a while then rinse off . Not sure if it works , but have seen lots of recommendations of this to get rid of rust.
Hope it works .X

What an adorable little girl! Working out with her and hubby must be a real joy. I love your Halloween sampler and I sure hope you get the marks out.
Happy stitching!
