Simple Sunday Update

Saturday, February 5, 2011.
This week went by in such a blur that it was hard to believe that it is over. Weather wise we were extremely cold for the beginning of the week -40 temps it was horrible. By the middle of the week we were in the high 4o's it was such a nice change. Could almost walk around in just a sweater. Now we are dipping back down to the 20's but oh well.

Monday after school I met up with Ron and his Daughter Emma for lunch. It was great meeting her and she is just like her father it is amazing. He didn't have a hand of raising her but she is just like him.

School this week went fast. As it is my first week at school was hard to decide what to expect. First week was dedicated to Windows XP Fundamentals well I finished that in 2 days. I received a 96% so I am satisfied with it. I then moved to Keyboarding. Finished that on Friday and I can type 65 words per minute with only 2 errors. Not to bad I must say lol. The passing mark for 100% was 50 words per minute with only 2 errors. I took my time I know I can type way faster than that but I wanted limited errors. And now I can put that on my resume. Also received a certificate so that is a bonus lol. So with finishing Keyboarding I added an extra week for my practicum.

I haven't been stitching all that much this week as when I get home I'm beat. But I did work on a SAL on the HAED board for their retired artist SAL. I worked on Revelations as it is February, so it is Revelation month. Here is where I started to stitch from:

Here is where I ended up:

I also worked on my Froggy exchange for the I-Love-Cross-Stitch Group. I have finished one part of my frog. Now just have to finish the other part and piece it together. I should have that done next weekend. I will get sent off to my partner. I hope they like it.

I also worked on Monopoly. I am slowly getting there. Here is where I left off last week:

Here is what it looks like now:
So I got a lot done on Monopoly. I am going to continue working on it today and will see how much further I can get :)

Once Monopoly is over looks like Dream by Lizzie Kate will be the next one on the chopping block. Thank you all for all your votes. I hope you all had a great week. Also Peggy H is having a Giveaway here is her web address

Terri, it look like despite being busy with school and beat at night you've made some good progress on your WIPs!

Great progress last week! I didn't notice before that you're focussing on one HAED each month...that's intense! I have one on the go, but it's not actually going haha...they're so involved! Yours look great!

Bec said...

Great progress!
I am very jealous that you have a monopoly chart! I have been looking for on for a while now.

Happy stitching

Stitching looks good!

I was impressed by the colors in the Revelations piece. Would you show brochure photo or explain piece? I can understand you being tired after school. I like the Monopoly piece. You sure are busy. See ya in ccs group. BTW, what a temp variance....just like us. But that is common for us. My Packers just won the Superbowl. Don't know if people in Canada care. I loved visiting Canada before son was born.
