Okay so I have had my first finish of the year and today should actually have my second finish too but I can't show them to you yet. They are both for my Fair and square exchanges. I have finished one main square and will finish my 2nd main square today. And then over the next few days I should be able to get my signature squares completed. I know they are not due out until Feb 23rd but I really became inspired to work on them and the first one just flew by plus it was nice to get a little break from MLOTS. I also got a new book in too that I completely forgot I had even ordered until I opened up the package, lol. Have that ever happened to you? Well here is the book I bought. I certainly laughed reading through all the sayings and even DH was laughing as I read them out loud. I ordered from Amazon which seems to be where I am ordering a lot of my stuff lately. Anyway as soon as these 2 exchanges are completed I am plan on stitching a few of these up. But I do have one thing ahead of all others. I found out a few days ago that the Elementary school nurses birthday is on Jan 25th She goes out of her way to care for Destiny and has even stopped onher way to the school to pick up Destiny for school so she is not walking in these freezing tempatures (DH takes the car to PT each morning and is not home in time to drive her himself). She has even taken both girls for a sleepover and buys them gifts on their birthdays and christmas. She has become their extended Grandma and so I want to do something special for her. She isn't married anymore and has no children so she is alone up here as what family she has lives in Chicago. So tonight I am going to find something I can stitch up for her and may even put my exchanges aside so I can make sure to complete my gift in time. I can show that one here cause I know she don't read my blog. :)

I have this book, too. I love some of the sayings in it. I haven't had a chance to stitch anything from it yet, but I sure am looking forward to it. :)

There a name called Dooce (from her blog) who used one if this cross stitch for the cover of her book.

Wich one are you going to stitch?

Each time you talk about your life on the base, it remind me my trip there.
