I hope you all have had a weekend full of stitching and creating. This weekend for me has had only a little bit of creating. On Saturday we had our Girl Scouts Thinking Day. I stayed at our table and talked for a couple of hours letting one of the other parents walk with the girls around the room. We ended up having almost 400 girls attend. All in all the girls had a wonderful time and had the chance to learn about many different countries that also have Girl Scouts/Girl Guides. Then the rest of the weekend has been spent packing and getting the house ready to sell. After 4 years of living in one place a person can accumulate quite a lot. I think I have as much stuff to put in our moving/yard sale as I plan on taking to the new place. Any thing that is left after the second day will be picked up by one of our local charities. I will not take any of that stuff with me. Right now we are T-minus 12 days until we actually pull out of our driveway and on our way to our new home. Because we only have a few more days I will be packing all my cross stitch pieces away. By the time I end each day lately I am worn out. Trying to decide what to keep, sell/giveaway, or what is trash is an exhausting process. All the memories (both good and bad) come surging into my heart and mind during a move. I will also not be posting for a couple of weeks. I will not have anything to post since all but a little bit of my yarn will be packed. I will be keeping up with everyone since I will not be able to go without my fix of all things creative but may not comment. lol. Now on to what you have been waiting for...pictures...
Close up. I am enjoying the way the colors are popping out on this fabricI have also been crocheting. I found this pink/white/green variegated yarn a couple weeks ago and it has been calling to me. I started working on a small blanket and loving the way the colors are blending into one another. I am a very basic stitcher and most of my items are either in single or double stitch.

In addition I found little balls of yarn here and there. You know the ones that get left over when you complete a project. I decided that I would use these to make a granny squares. Eventually I will put all these together into an afghan but for now, it is a quick little stitch to use up those little odds and ends laying around.
Well folks, that is all I have for now.
Ta Ta for now,
Angela the crazy cat lady.
