Redwork Exchange From Amy

I received my redwork exchange from Amy yesterday. Isn't this beautiful?! I think it is:) I didn't even have to hunt for a place put it. I knew as soon as I saw it that it would look great on my dresser. I have a dresser with a mirror and it has little areas running up the mirror for me to put my special things so I can see them everyday. Thank you, Amy, for such a wonderful exchange!

I was right it rained all day yesterday. So.....I prepared and cut the fabric for Topaz Fairie! When I say "prepare" I mean sewing the edges to keep from fraying, wash, dry and iron the fabric. Then I got all the DMC flosses out and started stitching. I didn't get much done last night since it was late by the time I actually started stitching. I am hoping to work on her for a bit today.

This morning before Mac and Krissy got up (Allie is at a friend's house) I was looking at the calendar and realized that NEXT month Krissy is old enough to get her learner's permit to drive!! I have been preparing myself for this for a few months but the sudden reality that it will be here in 37 days hit me this morning. I am so not ready for this stage! The first time she rode her bike without training wheels she rode right into the side of a parked car! She forgot to use the brakes. Another time she ran right into the back of me....because she forgot to use the brakes. First things first, she has to pass the test. I am sure she will do fine on the test. Krissy is very book smart. She has always been on the Honor Roll and has received many awards.

I am off to enjoy a lazy day. I hope everyone has a wonderful day:)

Another lovely exchange! Good luck with your daughter and driving! My bf's daughters are 15 & 16 - riding with them is a *little* scary at times :p
