Another Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday has arrived already. This week I completed over 600 stitches on Santa and the Mouse. (The photo above shows how it looked last week.) There are only 546 stitches remaining and I wish I had time to just sit with this project to finish it up right now.
It is so close to completion! The question is, when I finish, do I wait and share pictures with next Wednesday's WIP post? Or, should I just share it in a separate post? What do you think? (Either way, I imagine I will be grinning from ear to ear, doing a happy dance and telling anyone in my household that will listen, "It's done! It's done! Look, it's done!")
Changing the subject... Have you heard of Love Rocks? I learned about them when someone in our town found one a few days ago. I think it is a sweet, sweet way to honor two little girls lost in a tragic accident. I read the story about Love Rocks here and read a few stories others shared about them here on the Facebook page. I may have to make one to share...
Earlier this week, I read that 69 firefighters flew in from New Zealand and Australia to help with the multiple wildfires burning in the Northwest. My prayers of gratitude and for safety are going out to all of the brave souls out there fighting the blazing flames and smoke. My heart and prayers are also with the families of the brave men we lost to these fires this summer. Our weather forecast indicates we may have a touch of rain this weekend. I hope so. (As much as I love a good thunderstorm, I am hoping for rain with no lightning that may ignite more fires.)
As for my week... I get to volunteer with our high school's registration, which is always fun. It is great to see the staff members, parents and students in our community. We are also moving my eldest son to his dorm for his freshman year of college. (Time truly does fly! It seems like just yesterday we were signing him up for preschool.)
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having an amazing week!
