an update

I bought a new to me car and what a deal... a whole $100.00. I went out to the Ford dealer as they were having a 4 day sale. Wed one for 10,000 (out of my price range) Thursday one for $1000. which was a 2002 Ford Taurus, I wanted this car so i was out there at 10 to 8 as the sale started at 9, well a person got there 20 minutes before me so he got the car, but I went the next day and got the Friday $100. car which is a 1998 Ford Taurus Wagon which I love and it is in great shape and drives beautifully.
I will need to get all season tires for it as it only came with winter tires, and eventually I will have to get a new battery for it as my Grand Prix battery won't fit which is a bummer as that battery is not even a year old.
I have been doing a little stitching I finished a tote bag for my sister for her birthday in March, and I sewed a pair of PJ pants for myself with cute giraffes on them. I will get Savy to take a picture of me in them and post one soon. I am working on a bookmark for an exchange I joined in one of my groups, and also working on a SAL with Christmas frogs that are so cute.
Hubby has been home all week it has been so nice as I have missed him when he is gone for so long. He applied for a truck driving job but we haven't heard from them yet.
Well off to do my treadmill them some housework then stitching yeah! Take care all chat soon!

Happy New Year

Hello I am not starting the year off great as I have had a cold since the 23rd of December that just won't go away. As soon as I start to feel better then wham it is the sore throat back or cough etc...
I have a finish already I made myself a FOB.

I am also working on another one for myself which is a poem I found that I just loved and I have it almost all stitched then I will add a giraffe along the side and make it into a bellpull. I wish all my friends and family all the best in 2010.
