200th Post !!!!......

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!!! ~ Well here it is , my 200th post! Quite some time ago , I had pictured my 200th post being a little more of a "whoopla" than this. You know, I'd have so much stitching and what not to show. But alas, I have been so busy with all of those baby afghans that I don't have much else going right now.
I have been meeting with my little 7 year old student who I have been teaching to knit. She painted me this "thank you" picture. Wasn't that so sweet??! Her knitting is coming along good. I think before too long she will be practicing on her own. Oh , the brown figure is a puppy , not a bear, like I thought! LOL

I have done a little bit of stitching on Simple Joys. Not much , but as soon as those afghans are all done, watch how quick I get it done!! LOL

We have had some sad news. My brother's ex-girlfriend , who he still thought a lot of, tragically drown in a swimming accident this past weekend. She has 3 small children. It is so very sad. It will be very hard for them to cope and I can only imagine what they must be going through.

I haven't had much weight loss going on , but I think before too long *crossing fingers* I should start to see a little more.

I don't have much planned this week other than knitting and working on school with my son. I do have some girls to teach sewing to this coming Friday. I went to teach them last Friday and we will actually start a project this Friday. I'll try to remember to take pictures.

Well, that will wrap it up for me, and probaby for the week, we'll see. Hope you all are having smooth sailing of getting your kids back off to school, starting a new job, stitching, crafting, quilting, or whatever little adventure is you've got going on. Thank you all for your continued visits and I hope you all come back real soon. Of course I suppose you might if I'd post a little more often! LOL I hope to remody that next week!

'til next time,

don't be a stranger,
