Homework, birthdays, and exchanges...

Hi there!  Well things here have been a little busy.  The kids school homework is really kicking our bums.  I don't know what the deal is, but my 4th grader has more homework than my 6th grader.  I'm not sure if she just doesn't focus or what, but I'm exhausted after doing all of that.  She gets very frustrated too.  Which naturally distresses me.

Since the last time I wrote, we have had my youngest DD's 8th birthday.  She had a great time.  She had a sleepover the night of her birthday with 3 of her best buddies.  Then on Saturday, she had a roller skating party with about 9 of her friends.  She enjoyed herself sooo much!  

I've been in a little bit of a stitching funk lately.  I don't know what the deal has been.  I have been stitching, just not like I used too.  I'm hoping it's because I wanted to get some new stash. I rectified that today.  I made a small purchase from the Silver Needle, and then a bigger purchase from Needlecraft Corner.  Needlecraft Corner always has a 20% off sale.  It really can add up.  Drema always processes and ships the orders quickly too.  I did go to a new to me quilt store last week.  They moved to a new building which is so beautiful and nice.  I bought some really cute finishing Christmas fabrics for the ornament exchanges I have going on in the next month.  Plus they had the cutest scissors.  I'll have to take a picture of it next time.  
I did receive this beautiful exchange piece from Edgar on Tuesday.  It was for the HOE Fall Exchange.  It's a Mary Garry piece.  Didn't he do a beautiful job!!!  I sent my exchange out too, but I forgot to take a picture.  I hope that my partner will post a picture so I can show you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
