The Prairie Schooler - Christmas

A finish! ... um, and it's not even on my goals for September, how did that happen? LOL

Christmas Sampler - The Prairie Schooler
Stitched on a stray piece of cream coloured 32ct linen

Today the girls and I are going shopping! I even managed to get them to tidy their bedroom as an incentive to get going (so I shouldn't really be sitting here LOL). DH and the two middle boys are away at a soccer tournament for the weekend, the biggest boy is still asleep in bed and I imagine will be there for a while ... so it's just the two girls and I :)

Did I mention that David Jnr now has his learners driving licence? AND officially starts his first real "grown up" job tomorrow (at the local supermarket stocking shelves - a 6hr shift every Sunday) ... gosh it really does seem like just yesterday he was learning how to walk!

Oh, and I caved and bought another HAED Quick Stitch last night ... I haven't even finished the first one, and have a few others I've bought and drool over every now and again too. I can't get a direct link to the picture, but it is Red Witch by Meredith Dillman. I'm really really tempted to start it tonight ... but WILL finish Woodland Cottage first!

Righty oh ... must go, those girls will be chasing me soon.

Hi Lisa,
How are you handling having another driver in the family? I have a 15yo son, not driving yet but will be taking driving class soon. He's eager and I'm NOT! I'm just not good in the passenger seat, lol! Not until they get a little experience anyway.

Congrats on an unplanned finish! It looks terrific. :D

Cute! I just bought this chart and am figuring out what to stitch from it.
