October 27, 2015

I am a horrid person.  No updates in how long?  August!!  How did that happen??
A few unstitchy things prior to stitchy things.
Hubby got a new job!!!  He is getting paid much better, doesn't have mandatory overtime, likes what he does, and the people he works for!  The commute is about the same, but there are no bridge tolls now, so that helps!  Plus, he carpools, so the commute isn't as bad since he has his buddies to talk to.  :)  
Our 300C Chrysler is still in the shop.. they lost the key.  (We only have one).  So, we got a new car.  Hubby drove it to work the first day he had to drive carpool and the check engine light came on.  Yeah, we returned that after not even having it 2 weeks!!  We got another car and it's much better and has less miles on it.  For pretty much the same price.  Score!  He loves it and it drives wonderfully.
This past Saturday we took our daughter to go see Owl City in San Francisco.  She got the VIP ticket and got to meet him and get her picture taken with him.  She also got to tell him that he was a very big inspiration to her and that she loved his work.  

In the 5th grade she was in the talent competition at school and sang his song "Fireflies" onstage in front of all of her peers and numerous parents.  She has loved Owl City for so long and I knew that I had to get her to meet him.  I am so glad that I did.  She had an amazing day.  "The best day of my life" is how she actually describes it.  It made me so happy that we could do this for her.  The pictures of Owl City were taken by me at the back of the venue.  She was right up against the stage!  I don't have the really good picture she took here, but it is amazing.  She was so close!!
The weekend before that, on Friday, we went to see Zac Brown.  I really like the band and it doesn't hurt that my hubby has a Zac Brown look about him either.
Hubby and I went with 2 of my girlfriends and we had a great time.
I went to MO for work for a week.  It was an interesting trip, but I was very happy when I got home.  I missed my family!
On to the stitching.  
I haven't touched Giraffe for awhile, so there isn't any update on him.  I have however been working on Ruh and he is coming along nicely.  Page 21 is moving right along.
Isn't he handsome?  This is from last week, so a bit more is done now, but I forgot to take an updated picture today.
HAED's had an anniversary sale last week and I RAK'ed a couple of people.  I love making someones day!  
And if you haven't seen, they are now on Instagram, (run by Michele's daughter).  Look for them at officialheavenandearthdesigns.
So many charts, so little time!!

That is all for today my friends!  Enjoy your craft time!
