Yikes! it's the New Year!

Hello all!

I have a brief update.  Girl Scouts first.

I am having a weekend retreat with the Gold Award Committee this weekend. We help the girls through the process of earning their Gold Award (the highest award in Girl Scouting).

Next weekend, my troop, the 2nd grade troop and the 6th grade troop are having a weekend camp-out. We are staying in a lodge at a scout camp near to us.  If there is snow on the ground we'll be getting out the huge old-style toboggans. We'll be doing some fun crafts.
Most importantly, we'll be working on the frame work for one of our community service projects.  Two weekends in a row, the second with about 40 girls ranging 7-9 and about 10 tweens.... if you don't hear from me by Feb. 5th call in a search party please!!!!

Stitchy update:

 I did not get my shells finished for my step mom.  The confetti stitches were waaaaay more trouble then I was expecting. My Step-mom says that her bathroom is not going anywhere so there's no rush.  I am almost done with it though.

Mom was awesome and got me 6x6 Q-Snaps for Christmas so I'm finding that much easier to stitch the project.

For relief from confetti stitches, I participated in a Stitched Valentine Card exchange in my online stitch group ILCS.  I sent it out but forgot to take a picture.  I can't post it until it's received, but now, unless my partner posts a picture to our group, I won't be able to post it anyway. It was a lovely, freebie chart and very simple.  I used variegated thread and added a little metallic thread to spice it up a bit.

Take care all and thanks for stopping by!
