On the other hand, last night and tonight I've finished two ornaments. I did start these earlier in the month, so don't go thinking these were fresh starts and that I have turbo-needles! I got these cute little Santa's out of a magazine at Ann's, the only problem is I didn't make a note of which magazine!
Stitched on : 32ct Platinum Lugana

First I'll start with something stitching related since this blog has been quite bereft of stitching content for about two weeks now! Mid-week I received my squares for round 9 of Fair and Square from Jane in the UK. They are going to make a fantastic addition to the quilt I'm going to make from them. Jane's squares will be going in the mail on Monday and hopefully they will make it quickly across the pond so I can share them with you. I quite like what I stitched up for her.
On the model stitching front, I'll be finishing up the Dragon Dreams model today! Yippeeee! I stayed up until after 1am stitching, and I could of stayed up longer but I decided I didn't want to waste a fair part of Sunday sleeping in. I'm down to the last cross stitching section, and one row of specialty stitches. When I'm done here online I'll be picking it back up.
This weeks Photo Hunt theme is "View" and I think I'm going to share with you one you've seen before... its my favourite view at a very good friend of mine's summer home. I often make it out there on average twice while she's in Canada and I get to enjoy this fantastic view of lake Ontario.
I've almost reached my fundraising goal for Run For The Cure, I'm sitting at 480.00 out of 500 raised. I have until Sunday morning on October 5th and I'm sure I'll reach it by then! Thank you to all of you out there in the blogger community who have made online donations (see the link below my profile in the sidebar if you're interested in donating).

So what did I spent me weekend doing? Since it was cold, miserable and rainy ... I stitched of course!
I pretty much spent two days working on Vonna's Neighbourhood RR, except the odd time when Hunter insisted on being on my lap, then I worked on my September ornaments. I have to say the house I picked for Vonna (which is actually more like a shop but I just loved it!) has so much confetti stitching! Argh, I'm sure I'd be done by now if it wasn't for that confetti. Vonna's worth the extra work anyhow!
P.S. that's not the best picture but its late and I don't care LOL!

I've gotten a start on Vonna's Neighbourhood Round Robin, it was MIA for awhile but one of our members went and got since we had a good idea of where it was and she didn't live too far away. I wish I had more progress than this to show (the roof) but this is one of my busier times of year.
I am going to try my best to get back at Photo Hunting! I've had a few commenters telling me they miss my participation. So here's last week's theme : Beautiful
This picture was taken back in 2005 when my Mum and I last went to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Being someone who lives inland and too many hours from the ocean, there's nothing more beautiful than a beach with the ocean waves lapping up on the shore.
When I weighed in last night the scale didn't budge an ounce!!! I suppose this is a good thing since I didn't track a single point all long weekend long!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments lately, I really appreciate each and every one!

Friday after work Christin (thank you for helping the ladies at work all day!) and I loaded into my poor little car (I think I've put on 6,000 KM since the end of July) and set off to Kathy's place on the shores of Lake Ontario outside of Brighton, Ontario. I pulled up to Kathy's happy to see that Beatrice's car was already there. We were warmly welcomed and not too long after arriving Kathy had a nice dinner ready for the four of us. It didn't take us long to get stitching, since I was soooo tired I pulled out Paradigm Lost, it was about the only project I was capable of focusing on. We stitched late into the night.
Kathy showing off her gift! Look familiar?
Here's Saturday's group shot... not the best unfortunately I didn't take the lighting into account, but we so wanted the lake in the background.
