SFS August Report and a Page Finish!

Hello again!  I've had another good month with SFS and haven't spent anything.  That will probably change next month as I'm starting to run short on some colors of floss.  

Spent: $0
Carryover: $25
Total: $50

But my big excitement for this post is that I finished my next page.  Technically it's two pages since I didn't count them before but I'm so excited it seems like it took forever!  I love how this page turned out though.

Last post I was here:

Now I'm here:

It's still going to be a while before that third line comes in but hey it means more ocean to enjoy :). 

Non stitchy wise we're still in hotels.  We're waiting to hear back from a couple of places hubby interviewed at.  But tomorrow starts my last week at work and he's put in his 2 week notice so we are planning on starting our cross-country trek on the 30th.  We're going from here and staying the night in New Orleans which is one of my favorite cities.  Then we're going to San Antonio and spending a day at Seaworld since we get in free. We'll stay the night there and our next stop will be Phoenix.  He went to college there so we will see some friends.  And then we'll arrive in SoCal which is where we're living.  I know a couple of weeks ago Sandy mentioned a stitching group that meets and if love more info about it but you're a no reply blogger.  Can you email me your email address. Thanks!  

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world.  Please send some good juju our way that hubby gets a job.

See you all next time when we're on the road!
