I finally recieved my round 3 squares for the Fair and square Exchange from Peg. She really likes samplers so she did this one up for me. She did it in this color to make it look like fall which I think it does. Its very nice Peg, thank you. I just got them in today and Peg had posted to them to the board not knowing if I had received them or not which kinda ruined the surprise but oh well it doesn't change how I feel about them.

And below are some pics of my oldest DD, Destiny's Daisy Scouts Induction. She's the second one from the left holding the yellow petal in the first picture. She earned her first daisy petal for couragous. She also earned a few other patches for attending a few events. She missed her veterans day patch because they didn't inform everyone properly that there was an event. She is also missing her USA flag and troop numbers, a friend of mine was suppose to order those for me and she didn't so I asked her troop leader to order them for me.
Here she is getting pinned as an official daisy scout! :)
And here they all are joining hands in friendship and singing the Daisy song.

And here is the stuffed animal I am making for Nick, Dawn's son. Its a Bear and he'll be about 7 inches tall sitting, the same size as Eley. Hopefully I can finish him up today.
I also decided to use December to try and finish up some WIP's before the year ends so I will not be starting any new projects outside of what I need for Christmas gifts.

On a scary side I went through something awful yesterday. I was cleaning my kitchen and my little one was playing by the front door. I had forgotten there was a trash bag with broken glass in it that her dad was suppose to take out that morning and forgot. Anyway she came running in crying and her right hand was sliced open pretty good. She had cut her hand on a piece of glass poking out of the bag. You could see the insides of her hand tendons and all. I knew she needed stitches so I called her dad to come home immediately and by the time he got home I had the bleeding slowed to a crawl. I tossed a sterile cloth over it and we took her to the clinic her on base and the head pediatrician looked at and then told us he didn't have time to fix her up right now as he had to take care of triage and some other things (I was pissed!) and said he would give us a numbing cream and we should go to the klinikum (German hospital) so we sat for 15 minutes and waited for this cream and then off to the klinikum we went. By the time we got there she had stopped crying and was doing ok. They sent us to surgery and their Dr made my heart skip a beat. He said she may have cut her tendons and may need surgery. She wouldn't bend her pinky finger for the Dr, nurse or her daddy so I told her is she wanted ice cream she needed to bend her fingers and I shode her on my hand and she just copied me so thankfully no surgery but it took 3 of us to hold her down while he put in 3 stitches. They used a local anesthetic before stitching her up but I don't think it worked. She fought and screamed at the Dr the whole time. My DH and I couldn't believe the anger she had and he finally understood the kind of strength I had been telling him she had. Once he stopped stitching her up she stopped crying and allowed the nurse to clean her wound (she had bleed all over the table and her arm) and bandage her up and then the nurse gave her a tootsie pop and she was excited to finally be going bye bye. The stitches have to stay in for 14 days and then the clinic here on base can remove them for her. But I was still scared all that blood coming out and seeing inside her hand. She is doing good now, she ran into a wall in the niddle of the night and fell on her hand so I gave her more ibuprofen and stayed with her until she drifted off to sleep.

Okay first, a giant Happy birthday to my little girl Kiley, who turned 3 today! She absolutely LOVES Hello Kitty so her Oma in Texas sent her a blanket and pillow where the blanket fits inside the pillow when traveling. So cute! She also recived matching Pj's like her sister which excited them both and she got a couple of puppies. :)

I'm also mailing out my F&S squares round 3 on Tuesday. I recieved Pegs address ffrom Annemarie. Thanks so much Annemarie! For some reason Vonna's emails are not coming through. Anyway the Post office is closed Friday through Monday for the four day here so I have to wait for Tuesday to send them out but I'm going to send them the fastest way possible since I received her address so late. I don't want her to have to wait longer because of emails not getting through.

Now we are through with round 3 but mine aren't mailed out to my new partner Peg because I do not have her address, Vonna sent me it again but I didn't receive it. I even checked my bulk and spam folder andit wasn't there either so I am trying to get a hold of vonna to get Peg's address still. Hopefully soon. And as soon as Peg has her squares from me I will post a picture of them here for you all to see. I remembered to take a picture this time!
And here is my Miribilia Fairy as of Sunday evening before I went to bed. I'm almost finished with her. But its wierd working on her now as its past Halloween but I hate to put her away until next year with so much of her completed. I am hoping by the time I post next Monday I will have a completed one to show you.
I am going to try and finish up my last 2 PIF gifts this week too so on the 15th I can just take all of them to the post office and get them mailed out before all the holiday packages start going out.
