The grades, The party and The Stitching

First I must say I am proud of my daughter:
English, History, PE, Art, Math and Science = all A's.  Both first and second quarter.  I am so proud of her.  She had a few B's at progress report time, but she was missing some assignments.  Since she turned them in, it brought her grades up to A's. 

Secondly, her party went off rather well.  Ended a bit differently than we initially thought, but that is okay right?
There they all are, 11 kids and 4 adults, 1 which you can see.  Dearest daughter is in the front with the purple/black checkered pants on.  They all had a great time jumping and having fun.  I enjoyed it as well.  She got some great presents and a bunch of cash.  We initially were going to take her shopping after her party, but her cousin asked her to spend the night so we decided that we will go shopping next weekend.  She is fine with that.
Of course this morning when she woke up, she has a sore throat and a head ache.  She went to school, so I am hoping it isn't too bad.  She will be calling me soon to check in and I will find out how she is feeling.  I am hoping that she is doing well and isn't too bad. 
Thank you all for your kind words when I wasn't feeling well.  I felt pretty good when I woke up last Friday and have been good ever since. 
Thirdly, today, I finished page 9 of Ruh.  So here is page 9:

Isn't that lovely?  And here is page 1 - 9 complete:

I started gridding page 10 and counted wrong, so now I have to fix it...  Not happy about that.  But better than stitching it and then realizing I was off by 2!  Tomorrow I will finish gridding and then on to stitching page 10!  So happy about that!  He is looking marvelous I think, but of course I am a bit biased.  I am really liking the black fabric too.  I am glad that I chose to re-start him.  He just pops right off of the fabric I think. 

In other news:  I would like to welcome my new followers, I am now up to 30!  Although I did not take part in the GYB party, I am slowly going through the list of 400 blogs and I am finding some great stuff!  So to all of my followers, thank you for coming and reading my ramblings.  I really appreciate all of the comments, feedback and general goodness that you bring along with you.  Cheers to you all!

Have a wonderful evening and happy crafting to all!

  2. Ruh looks amazing! It really does look like he's popping right out of that fabric!
