Progress on the wizard

Well, I've been slowly but surely making progress on the wizard. Here he was as shown in the last post:

Here he is after stitching on him for a couple of weeks (forgive the crumpled fabby):
The wizard

The boys and I headed off to CO for a vacation though and I haven't touched him since before we left. I need a new audiobook to listen to so I can work on him some more!!

Trick or Treat Fairy done!

Well, last night just before 11pm, I finally finished up Nora Corbett's Trick or Treat fairy from the Sep 2008 CS&N magazine.

Trick or Treat Fairy by Nora Corbett

It feels like an accomplishment to have 2 pieces done so close together! So now I have to decide if I pick up yet another thing in my WIP pile or throw something new in. You wouldn't think that'd be such a tough decision! I wouldn't mind picking up my wizard and working on him more:

He probably wouldn't be too hard to finish! But then again, something new is calling my name! I'm thinking maybe one of those all one color Who Knew? patterns with the mermaids. Of course if I work on something in my WIP pile, I wouldn't have to ponder fabric and thread! Maybe I'll work on that cute Halloween pillow I started long ago. It wouldn't take long to finish up!

Counting the Days

Tomorrow it'll be 5 months that my husband has been deployed. I know we're on the downslope here, but man does this seem like it's taking forever! Since nursing school is out for the summer, I need another form of escapism to make the time go by faster. So, I have been glued to my Kindle all week reading a variety of books until all my favorite sequels come out. Too bad a lot of them come out in August...right when school starts again!

My hubby is feeling down. He doesn't think this deployment is as fun as the last. They had lots of pranks going on last time so, I've decided to send him a prank box. I filled it with whoopie cushions, squirt guns, nerf guns, slingshot rockets, water balloons, etcetera. I'm hoping it'll help him get people going over there. Yes, my hubby may be nearly 42, but he's still a kid at heart!

Meanwhile, I'm just trying to keep the boys and me busy so we can get through the last bit! Oh yeah, AND get the bathroom reno done. I have no idea how long these things take. Tomorrow I'll go out and buy the new tub, toilet, vanity, tile, etcetera. The guy says he's coming before the end of June to start the project, so I'm hoping it'll be finished before the summer is over? I get dibs on the first jacuzzi bath! :D I'm imagining filling that tub, lighting some candles, and having adult beverages after a long day at clinicals!!

I sent off my Grateful Nation to Jill Rensel to be framed and her ideas look fabulous, so I can't wait to share pictures when it's finished! Currently working on the Trick or Treat fairy and hoping that'll be done before the summer is over too! I'm already on the kreiniks and then I have a bit of outlining and some beading to do, so I'm thinking it won't take too much longer! Then I'll have to decide what to work on next...or maybe start something new! *grin*
