On Diligence and Lots of Good News!

Yesterday was the kind of day that I wish I could have everyday. First, I found out that I was the lucky winner of Marly's giveaway! I love her blog and if you have never visited, go take a look. Then, I found out that my daughter's boyfriend of six years was planning on proposing to her today. I wish that I could be there to see the look on her face. We all know that when our children are happy, we are happy. Then, we got the news that my husband's job was safe for now. I feel like the whole world has been lifted from my shoulders. Finally, I finished On Diligence. Boy, how could I have so underestimated how long it would take to finish it. It is huge! I hate the fabric it is stitched on though - very fuzzy. In places it is so fuzzy that the threads look worn. :( But it is done and I am excited to move on. I guess to end it on a positive note, all of the bad things I felt would be wrapped up in it seem to have been resolved on the very day that I finished it. Now if I could only master picture taking. How frustrating!

Leaving you with a picture of my daughter's horses.

Happy stitching everyone! :)
