Year of Starts 268-273

Hi everyone!  Lets see what I started the last week of September...I went to Disney on Ice on September 30th at the Tulsa State Fair.  My mom and I had a wonderful time!!  The Tulsa Fair has a Sugar Showdown of Cakes and Cookies.  We could not believe the cakes we saw!!  Kerry Vincent from the Food Network Channel hosts this event and even judges it!!! 

We let home early enough so we could stop at the Silver Needle....Dear Lord my CC was smoking when I left.  I managed to pick up several new Mill Hill kits while I was there.  They have an entire wall of Mill Hill kits that are finished as pillows!  OMG!! I was in Heaven!

I was still sick so we went into the Disney on Ice show an hour before it was supposed to start.  I won't lie, I fell asleep in my chair and took an a nap while waiting.  You want to know the strange thing...No one bothered me or even woke me up.  My mom finally woke me when the show started.  That nap felt wonderful....

You  are here to see what I started...So here are starts 268-273

Start 268: Wonka Land by Petal Pushers  I stitched the goose that lays the golden egg.   I dyed my own fabric ...it is a greenish color


Start 269:  Tiny Tigers stitched on 28 count Guacamole Green

 Ok..That is it for September!!!

Year of Starts 261-267

There is a valid reason on why I didn't post this on the require day for me....I woke up this Sunday morning feeling very grumpy and I wasn't sure why.  Well, by 6 pm, I had the cold from the very pits of Hades come up and attack me!  OMG!

September already with a finish. Starts 240-253

I have just decided that I am going to update every two weeks!  I keep trying to do a weekly update but I can't seem to get my act together.   Thank you so much for all the well wishes on my illness last post.   I am doing much better!  Just trying to keep my head a float with work and home.

Last weekend was Labor day and I thought I would have an amazing weekend to stitch but that didn't happen.  Saturday I ran multiple errands to I could enjoy my weekend.  Sunday, I did manage to get a little stitching in but I wound up taking a 4 hour nap....I think I was tired.  Monday, Mark and I went to lunch with my mom. Mom and I went to Hobby Lobby and then Cracker Barrel after.  I like to shop for clothes in Cracker Barrel.  They have cute lacy feminine shirts and pretty jewelry.

This weekend, I went to lunch with my mom to celebrate her 65th Birthday.  We then went to Hobby Lobby, and Walmart.   Mark and I spent the evening at home watching the Razorback football game...that was bad...real bad.

If you are interested, I created my first two flosstube videos on YouTube!  Yep...going to videos and my blog..so I will do both.  I am enclosing a link for my latest one.  I just did a WIP parade of my last years Halloween starts.

Here are my starts for the past two weeks!  I cannot believe I am start 240!!!  I have 112 more starts starting tomorrow!  I won't lie...I am a little nervous about this!!

I finished a page of Hot Air Balloon Santa:



Start 240:   35th anniversary Art of Disney -  I dyed the fabric on this it is a dark tealish blue


Start 241: Winnie the Pooh Heave Ho  I started Tiggers Hand

Start 242: Winnie the Pooh: ON Parade - Started with Tigger again
