Fat Men May 22, 2012 Update
I'm still working on the Christmas UFO. Looking at the chart (I can't believe I didn't make a working copy) it looks like I've made lots of progress but when I look at what I've already stitched it doesn't look like it.
Next, I'm in the Yahoo Group Friendly Stitchers! Gillie has just announced a Christmas?Winter Challenge and swap. I can't decide if I should sign up or not. I want to. I have until June 21st to make up my mind. I'm trying to find a chart to stitch. I was a bit worried because there aren't to many new Christmas charts out yet but today she said we could get out of magazines from last year or check for a freebie! I think I can even handle that.
Last Saturday I went to Auburn Washington for Pet Palooza with my rescue group. We didn't get to many apps for Chihuahua's that I know of but today we got word that a vet tech put in an application for Shorty (yes Shorty the Chihuahua). Shorty has Liver Shunts. I'm not to sure what that is but I know he has to have special food and medication with each meal. He can get very ill very fast. He is the cutest little guy. I held him all afternoon! He's a tiny little white Chihuahua. I think he may weight 3 pounds and that just might be soaking wet! We're all very happy for Shorty!
In one month my sister and I leave for our "Sister Vacation"! Every year we take a vacation together. We are going to Springfield Missouri to visit our cousins again. When we were growing up we only saw them once. When my sister graduated from high school she and a friend drove back from Ventura California. We went back 4 years ago and had a blast. This time I will be looking for some cross stitch shops to check out also. We fly into Tulsa Oklahoma and I've already found "The Sliver Needle" to visit there. We'll also be going to Branson and I know there's a shop there also. Wow - 3 new places to visit. I probably should start making a list of the charts I have and the over dyed floss so I don't buy duplicates. I do that way to often. I don't mind when I buy floss I already have but a chart - not good!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day stitching or even out in the garden enjoying the sunshine. We are back to the gloomy weather here for a few more days. We got a good 3 inches of rain in the last 2 or 3 days.
