Stitching and Footballing!

Good morning!
Last night I finished up all the charts for this Lizzie Kate Halloween Rules and started the free top part and the border..I know how I am going to finish it so I really want to have it finished to use for this Halloween ! It is pretty big ( long) I still have to sew all the little buttons on also..
I have kept up with this Santa's Village from Country Cottage Needleworks .. The bottom left is Septembers chart ( for me) so hopefully it will get finished before October..
and I finished the 3rd ornament from the first collection of Hands On Designs chalkboard ornaments.. I replaced the brown color floss with white for this one.. I have started one of the second collection but not enough to show..
Now onto football..
My son is the punter for San Diego State University  and they came last Saturday to play here in Illinois at Northern Illinois University .. so I had to make some sugar cookies for our tailgate party ! I also brought him some the night before at his hotel..

he had his best game ever.. and was awarded the Mountain West Conference Special Teams Player of the week! So exciting ! Such a great game !

No game for us this weekend as they are off..but next week we will be in South Alabama .. If my Lizzie Kate piece is finished I need a new airplane project :)

If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Thanks so much for all your visits and sweet comments !
Linking to these fabulous parties !

Love your cross stitch projects and the three tiered decoration. I have one too but am way behind on my seasonal d├ęcor. Glad you enjoyed the game and just a short drive instead of a flight...our daughter is the Chief of Staff of the Athletics Dept. at NIU. I did watch part of the game, but NIU didn't get started until the second half. Congrats to SDSU in making the AP Top of only two teams from the non power 5 conferences...which makes me happy. Coming to DeKalb in early November...any chance you would be willing to meet for coffee. Take care, Charlotte Hutcheson

Love your stitching projects, Priscilla--can't wait to see how you end up finishing the LK piece :) I know it will be special!

And a big congratulations to your son and SDSU--that is fabulous. And how wonderful that his best game ever was one you could be there for. You sure are getting in a lot of traveling this year--enjoy all that airplane stitching time. I guess I'll be doing that myself when we start visiting our son in SD, too :)

Congratulations to your son! I can imagine how proud you are of him. You were in my old stamping grounds. I graduated from NIU lots of years ago. Lizzie Kate is very cool , I can't wait to see how you decide to finish it.
