Labor Day Weekend labors & More Good News!

I set a goal for the long Labor Day weekend.  Finish stitching 3 items. Then that set me off onto a search for 3 things that were not too far from being finished  :)

I worked all day on Saturday. But finished this February block of A Wooly Good Year.

After church on Sunday, I finished Patrick's Woods Spotted Hare Needle Purse.

And 2013 SAL de Maryse was finished on Monday!
Really love the chocolate cherry mystery fabric I used with the Gloriana Fresh Snow silk.
No new starts though and I'm dying to start something new :)

Couldn't remember if I shared with you this Laura Perin Christmas ornament all finish-finished?

And did you see LHN Mellicent Turner all framed?

We bought a youth bed this weekend and assembled it for Amber.  She is just too big for the pack n play.  This was her first time using it for a nap.  Yes, she figured out that she could get out of it but she stayed in the second time.
Oh, yes, I also canned 14 pints of salsa and 17 pints of kosher dill stackers this weekend. And hosted a family BBQ on Monday. 
Now for the more good news  :)
DD#2 missed all the excitement of baby Brooke arriving because she was on a cruise.  Well, she came back from the cruise and informed the family that she is expecting!! Woo Hoo!  3 grandkids in 3 years!   She is due in March. 
Have a great week everyone!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog.

Congratulations on everything! First of all, the new grandbaby coming, then the finishes over the week-end, then the finish-finish on Sherri's bag--and finally, all the canning! I'm exhausted just reading about it all.

We also have 3 grandchildren - all boys in under 3 years and will have 4 in under 3.5 years (February).

They are wonderful! And so interesting to watching the different parenting styles.
