I started one of the 3 Spring Samplers from Prairie Schooler # 60 this week. It's a real fun stitch, I just love the sun peeking out from under the clouds. After going through my fabric stash I decided to stitch all 3 of the Spring Samplers on Silkweaver's Summer Storm 32 ct Lugana.
This is the busy season for me, I'm chairing the Carnival for our elementary school here and I just have to get everything together and lined up for it. It's first now that I filled all the volunteer slots, I need about 65 to 7o of them so it takes time to recruit that many people. We are doing treasure jars and raffling off basket and other donated items which we have call around and get from parents and local businesses. Then there's the food and pre sale tickets and and and.....it never ends!
At least we are now having a professional company that comes in bring in all games and rides. It's worth splitting the profits with them since they have insurance and people that they bring to make sure that the everything is safe for the kids. I do suspect that we doing better with them financially too in the end since the rides and games are more fun and in better shape then the ones we got from the rental place.
I do have some really good people that are helping me out and I'm so grateful for that!!
Today I'm going to spend time in the garden, I'm putting roses and sage into the retaining wall under our big tree this year. There was no way I could get that into the budget too last year (it's a big space) and this year we are not leaving for Sweden so I can be home and baby that garden the first year. I got those nearly wild pink roses, I wanted something hardy and those remind me of the roses that grew wild where I grew up.
