I finished Victory on August 8! My first full size HAED finish!
I celebrated by starting Peace by A Stitcher's Hands. The model was stitched over one on 28 count linen, but since I despise stitching over one on linen I decided to do it on 40 count. This design is so big that I needed a whole yard of fabric of for it! I'm using 40 count Legacy from Picture This Plus (an absolutely gorgeous fabric) and silks from Hand Dyed Fibers. I only worked on it for a day because I'm not totally happy with the conversion and need to tweak it a bit. So to continue rewarding myself I started A Confabulation of Dragons from Heaven and Earth Designs. I'm afraid there's going to be a slew of new starts in my future since I was restrained for so long. I do tend to over-do.

My daughter's car was declared a total loss. She was so happy. We spent the last couple of days car shopping and I must admit I'm totally flummoxed. The first dealership told her she could get a new car and then was unable to find financing. They then told us the banks were saying the payment had to be under $200 with $2800 down so they were trying to find a used car for her that would work. The next dealership had a better selection of used cars so I thought we would have less trouble finding something she liked that would be affordable enough. She ended up driving off with a brand new Suzuki SX4 and a $350 payment. And was told because of the repossession (6 years ago!) the banks didn't want to give us money for a second used car. I actually don't understand at all. My daughter is ecstatic, though.
