It's been a week?

I can't believe it's been a week since I last blogged. I have been so busy at work..which is good, plus it was fair week. I only went one evening with DD1. That was fun. We spent the 2 hours with her little friend and HER mom...who's my friend (poor english?). They had been without power for 3 days. Hurricane IKE devastated Texas and did a number to Ohio and other midwestern states as you know. Anyhow, we were fortunate to have never lost power. So I offered our showers/home to them until their power came back. They showered but they didn't stay. We were certainly glad to help at any rate. I did do some crafting this week. I started this wool pillow with the Oxford punchneedle about 2 years ago. Yep 2 years ago, before we moved. I have had it on the hoop that long. I finished it this week and I will tell you it feels so good to have completed it. AND I still love it. It's very primitive looking but brighter colors which I like. Here's my Merry and Bright table topper in the works. I am embroidering the ornament hooks. I started my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM block 4 but it's not done yet. So I am hoping to have some more finishes in the next couple of days.

So Good to hear from you. I am sorry to hear about the devastation too! It certainly is a good feeling when you can help out friends in any way you are able. I love the little pillow and can't wait to see the full picture of your Christmas project. By the way, I received your package and sent kudos to you on my post last week, check it out! Have a terrific weekend!
