PROGRESS - September 28, 2011

First, this is NOT starting out well!! I wanted to add more pictures and it will not let me and then I got this blue lettering with lines. Well, I know not to push my luck and will take it as it is!!

Debra Hall came last Thursday and was scheduled to leave this morning. We have had such a good time that she extended her airline ticket until Sunday morning. Going to be a real sad day on Sunday!!

We have had my local best friend, Karen, with us most of this week. The three of us have had such a great time!! Karen has become very important in my day to day independence and keeping it. Thus, she can remember and just knows things that I should and has kept us busy doing all we intended and wanted to do. She knows where things are and makes sure we get there!! She has just added to the fun we have been having even though she does not stitch - at least not yet!!

Yesterday, we happened by an old memory for me. I was once engaged to a man who needed to make an entry to a town's competition to decorate for their local festival. I designed and came up with his entry!! I had forgotten all about this ole boy fishing until we happened on it again!! The picture is below.
AND, much more importantly Debra and Karen are attempting to sort and organize my "de-stash"!! Below are pictures of the progress!! Now, just how to make these piles disappear to new homes!!

AND, I am off to have fun with Debra and Karen. OH, Karen did purchase her first "starter" stitching kit while we were touring the Amana Colonies on Monday.

Love and Hugs!!

Good luck with your destashing!

I am so glad that you all are having a great time. I believe Karen will have the stitching bug in no time once she starts her kit. Can't wait to see pics of you and Debra (and Karen) having a great time. Good luck with your de-stashing and I would be happy to help you find a home for some of it but you would need to let me know what you have and what you want for it. Looking forward to see more of your stitching!!

sounds like you are having much needed fun and also help with destashing is a plus.

I just got home from my little vacation and was glad to see you took some time out to post about your visit so far. Glad that you are having a wonderful time and I hope that you can get all your stash organized and on it's way to new homes. Hope that you post a few pictures of all of you!
