Sistine Chapel, Puppy Love and AWH updates!!

 Wow!!  I haven't posted since the 3rd of this month...this is going to be full of pictures.  First of all, I am having a Thirty-One bag party on Sept. 29 and it will close on the 30th (that is when payment will be processed.  In case you are in need of new stitching bags.  The special is if you spend $35 dollars then you can get the Large Organizing tote and Super Organizing tote for 1/2 price!  My Super Organizing Tote holds my entire Sistine Chapel project - a Jammer Box full of threads,  3 in Binder with my working copies, Extra bag with extra threads and small thread box for each scene.  Impressive!!!

These make EXCELLENT Gifts for Christmas!!!

If you are interested in ordering a tote....Click HERE and look under My parties..find My name and then start shopping or just looking.  Now on to stitching

Inside Super Tote

Below, is my Keep it Caddy.  It is a very small tote with lots of pockets.  I use it for my car project and to keep ornaments in it.  Very handy little tote.

This is my Room For Two Utility Tote...yes, that is my dirty laundry in it because I use it as a laundry basket.  It has a zipper divider I could put up if I wanted to.  I think I may order another one to store wrapping papers in it.

Here is my puppy love project.  Love how it is turning out.  This is what I will be working on this week.  Hoping to finish Minnies ears this week;

I have put my A Wintery Heirloom back into my rotation....I am stitching another damn tree.  Yes I used a bad word because I am tired of these trees!!!!!

Here is this weeks progress..the tree is slowly taking shape.  I am happy to say this is the last BIG tree I will have to stitch.  After this page and another page of sky, I will finally be stitching the houses!

 The whole project so how it is turning out.

Sistine Chapel....still working on it on Sundays.  This was last sunday's progress. Not much to show since I worked in my classroom for 5 hours last Sunday

Here is today's progress.  I finished another page.  Now I only have 332 pages to go!!!!

Just to get an idea of how big this project is all my fabric stretched out on the floor and my little progress to date.  Bert was a little confused because he was taking a nap and I accidentally woke him up.

My little world:

School/Work - is not any better.  It seems that this is the murphy's law of school years.  That is all I am saying.  We did get the millage to pass so in 2 years we will have a second high school!!!!  Hopefully, I can make it 2 more years!  Last weekend I spent 14 hours grading papers and doing paperwork.  I am still not caught up.  This weekend, I said NO NO NO NO! I watched movies, read a book and just took some me time.  I am really behind, but I will worry about that tomorrow.

I am officially down to double digits on my Disney New Years Eve trip.  I have watched enough videos to have $500 extra spending money for this trip!!  If you are interested in watching videos and earning money by doing it....let me know.  

The furry children are doing well...only a lizard in the house this week. It has been a very tame week.
