That's the craziest excuse for not x-stitching I've ever heard!

Well last week has come and gone and I didn't end up posting but have a little gem to show you that I made for my true love. ( I am sure he will be thrilled hee hee ha ha!!) I received this in an order I placed from a webshop a few yrs back and finally stitched it up .
As for "Lo" and "Practice Kindness.."I have had a few things come up that have kept me from stitching . One day I went for a haircut to the salon and while driving home encountered the police blocking off my section of a very long street that runs down to Lake Ontario.
Apparently an elderly lady had driven out of our local hospital right into an apartment building 4 doors down from my house!!! The poor lad sleeping in the apartment went to hospital and was alright thank goodness . The little lady was also fine. Certainly could have been worse. I couldn't get to my house so I ran errands till the street opened 4 hrs later. Was planning on stitching that day but hard to top that one!! I am sure my fellow bloggers have had good intentions to stitch on certain days and have been interrupted by unwanted intrusions. Some things one just can't help!! Tomorrow is my Dear Son's 16th Birthday . I just turned around twice and....... I will be making the 4 layer skor bar cake shown in an October post for dear husbands birthday and hope to celebrate at a local restaurant.
Hope to be back soon with more progress on 'Lo'( there has been some!) and a finish!


  1. Wow! What a good "excuse"! How bizarre that that happened. I'm glad everyone is OK. I guess that means you just have to take your stitching everywhere you go so you can stitch in the car if that happens again. ;-)

  2. Really glad that everyone wasn't hurt to badly.

    I have a habit of carring my stitching with me if I know I am going to be out for a day. Never know when I might have a chance to stitch.

  3. Well, you and I seem to be stuck on Lo! I feel like a broken record sometimes when I talk about it. Should we try a SAL together?

    I know what you mean about reading instead of stitching, (from your comment on my blog) but now that I've discovered audiobooks, a whole new world has been opened for me. It's the BEST type of multi-tasking!

  4. Gorgeous card! Happy birthday to your son! They grow up too quickly, don't they?!

  5. What a crazy story! That is to funny. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments on my blog. I'm so glad you found me (so I could find you!)
    Hope your DD figures out to buy with her AG gift card. So many things to choose from!
    Take care, and have a great day.
    Love the card BTW, really cute!
