I'm just about halfway done with Paradigm Lost. It seems to be very slow going.

Part 8 complete of EMS Rose Sampler. I really enjoy this piece. Sorry for the poor photo quality and the wrinkles.

Bar Ha Ba

We spent the day in Bar Harbor with my in laws. They came in on this cruise ship

Here is a pic of the whole family. Todd, Kimber, Me, Lynn and Jim. We had a really good time.

Yesterday Megan called and said a truck carrying fresh crabs had stopped on the big hill beside her apartment and the boxes of crabs slid to the back of the truck and the door broke open. All the totes of crabs ended up in the road! Everyone from the surrounding houses was picking them up and keeping them. Since they were dying so quickly the driver had to give them away. He couldn't sell them. It was a total loss for him. I sure hope he had insurance. Josh went out and picked up a grocery bag and a half of them. Todd and I cooked them and picked them out and this is what we got.

Progress pictures

Paradigm Lost is almost 1/2 finished. I've been working on it a lot during the Olympics. WTG Phelps!

This is one I am working on at work. I'm not sure I really like the colors I chose. Freebie can be found here

Wedding goodies

My daughter got married in June. I made them several items to celebrate the wedding. This is EMS design I made into her bridal shower card.

This is the gift I gave her for her bridal shower. It is a Dimension's kit.

I've lost that loving feeling

I've totally lost my stitching mojo. I hope it returns soon or I will be seriously behind in my project goals.

Here is a cute pic instead.

My New Toy

We went car shopping today. I would rather have gone to the dentist and had every tooth pulled without novicaine. Long, ugly story short, we did end up buying a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. It is my first automatic because standards are almost impossible to come by now. I guess I will get used to it eventually. As you can see it already needs a carwash. It is my first new car ever! I'm so excited. Isn't it purty?

The ugly house in the background is my neighbors....we share a driveway which is a total pain, but what can ya do? The cutie pie is my 7yo.
