Monday Update

Hey look a Monday update on Monday what a new concept haha. This week is already a million times better than last week and it's only the start. I got more done today than all of last week.  Sometimes life can just throw us everything can't it? Hey it's a new week. We can do this!

I put 2 days of stitching last week into my You are Loved Hinzeit piece. I figured I would just wait and show you an update for the Gifted Gorgeousness update on the 15th so hang in there for that. I have something better to post about right now...

Saturday Fred and me had errands to run. We went down to my dad's to do some final measurements at our family campground. Then we went and put our down payment on our cabin for the campground. Now they will complete the work on it and it will be delivered when we have the spot prepared. We can't wait! We've loved camping at the family campground but in a tent you have to worry about it being too cold, too hot, and all the rain and storms we can sometimes get. This coming season we will be spoiled rotten in comfort. It's going to be a 12 foot x 24 foot room basically and we will have heat and AC. Perfect. We are also going to build a covered porch so we will have outside setting too. I will have photos to share later don't worry. Right now it's just the start of the plans and we are really really excited to have our little home away from home.

On the way back home my hubby took me to my LNS so I could pick up Hold on to Hope. Here she is...
 As you can see we picked out a silver shiny type frame. We thought that would help her be the focus and show off the sparkle in the fabric. I just LOVE having her hanging on the wall finally!! They did a perfect job on her. I also figured while I was there I would find a little piece to do for the upcoming Easter blog hop. I found two I liked and I asked my hubby to pick which one he liked the best. He said Why don't you get both? (I'm so lucky to have my awesome hubby!) So I got two small Lizzie Kate's to do. I started one Saturday night after getting home and pulling the threads. I was able to get the first one finished up last night...
(Finish #9) March 4th, 2018
Hop Squared from Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 28ct Cream Lugana
Threads are Suggested DMC
Started Mar 3rd. Took 2 Days

It was a fun fast stitch. The other one I got was called Basket...
I will be starting it soon. I'm thinking of finishing them as cubes. I know I said I wouldn't be starting lots of new things this year. I blame Jo for hosting the fun blog hops. I just felt like a fun new piece would be best to share for the blog hop. Don't you think? So don't be too mad at me please.

Today is my hubby's 40th bday. We have fun plans this coming weekend so I'm doing the best I can to have a good week and be ready to celebrate the weekend away in his honor. I hope everyone reading this has a great week too. Maybe I'll be back soon with another Lizzie Kate finish. Now to just finish finish them before the blog hop on Good Friday.
