AWOL

Sorry for being AWOL (Absent With Out Leave) this past week. It has been a trying week. When I put the final beading around the binding of my Wedding CQ I couldn't find my Nymo beading thread so I used hand quilting thread. Well, of course after I finished I found the beading thread so... I spent several days going all the way around the beaded binding and sewed the beads on again with the beading thread (and the hanging tabs)... sigh... my fingertips are worn through but the freakin' beads will definitely stay put!! :0)

Then we spent most of Saturday house hunting in houses with no air conditioning (it was 108°) and it just drained us. We spent all day Sunday recovering! I also am just a tad obsessive compulsive and have been spending extra time on the computer combing through the house listings looking for that perfect home for Hubbie and me.

I hope to pick up the stitching again tonight and get back on track. I've been watching everyone else's progress and am anxious to join in on the fun again.

Pictures as soon as I have something done!!

Good luck in your househunting. It's an arduous process. By the way, we have a house for sale...
