Hectic...but we're sailing...

I had a dissapearing act for a while. It got so busy, and with the holidays fast approching, it's going to be even busier around here. A couple of weekends ago we went to visit hubby's uncle and his family up in Redding, I spent some time shopping with hubby's auntie who is also a filipina and from the same town I grew up in, she is a nurse and has been living here for 18 years. My family is also going to head down to Santa Maria for Thanksgiving. By then, plans for Christmas will be discussed. So yeah, It's so nice to know that the gas prices are getting better since long trips always require alot of gas. =^-^=

On better news, i did finish up my WIP, i was trying to finish it before we go down to Santa Maria, it isn't really officially done yet because I am still missing the birth information of the baby. I had called my friend but they won't be home for the long weekend so there is not point in bringing the cross stitch with me since I don't want to leave it outside of their house to sit for days.

This is Noah's Ark for baby by Leisure Arts. I had ommitted some things. I also dyed the piece of fabric myself. Stitched on 32 count jobelan. Thanks for looking.

Happy Thanksgiving To All. May you and your family be blessed all year.
