Another Tag Finished!

These tags are taking more time than I thought they would. But, dang it...they're cute!

I used DMC 4240 for the background color and Frozen Margarita for the circles. Not sure my stitching direction experiment worked but you can tell I did something wonky in the picture. :)

Rob and I have been working on the hardwood floors since Sunday. Egad! We started in the hallway and it was the most difficult place. There are 6 doorways to work around, a nook, and a second hallway that is 90 degrees from the first. I promise pictures to follow in a few days once this section is complete. I had moved all the furniture on Sunday morning thinking we would cruise through this and be in the dining room in a matter of hours. Ha! Twelve hours into this project and we are about halfway done with the hallway. Maybe by next weekend we will be finished.

And we had another addition to the family last Friday!

Ariah Grace
This is my niece by Rob's youngest step-sister. Isn't she just adorable? And she already has a double chin. So we now have new babies on each side of Rob's family. I'm waiting patiently for DD to get married, finish school and make a baby...no pressure Courtney!

Delayed grocery shopping until this morning. What fun. Can't leave until Courtney and I do her FAFSA. Ick - I think doing the financial stuff for college has to be the worst. Had to do a student dependency verification on Logan a week ago. How many ways can a college ask you for the same information?? Speaking of which, we need to call KSU about that.

Hope today finds you stitching with a smile! Have a great day ~

Ick is right. We just worked through FAFSA ourselves for our son.
Pretty stitching.
I will be watching for the floor pics.

I did circular stitching on some roses that came out like that. I think they look much better than your "wonky" description! Ariah Grace is so sweet. Nothing like a new baby to love on!

Congrats on the new Baby in the family! Don't count on that chin staying for long! I have an advantage over most everyone when it comes to remodeling... hubby is a carpenter by trade, and a contractor. So he does stuff really quick around here! Good luck in completing your flooring. And those tags will keep you busy when you are resting... maybe... Hugs!
