A busy week ahead

Good morning everyone.
Another busy week ahead of me, so there won't be much stitching going on in my house.
Today I am heading to Mitchell SD to pick up a motor for my DH's pulling truck (aka Lost Cause). This is a 1 1/2 hour drive there and another 1 1/2 hour drive back home.
Tomorrow I have new tires put on my car. A dentist appointment at 1:30 and a meeting to certify our crop acres at the county office at 3:30, so another day shot in the ass.
Wednesday and Thursday will be spent cleaning house because I have 2 second cousins coming from Norway. I have meet them once before in 1993 when I visited Norway with my aunt, grandma and my oldest daughter. It will be fun having them as guest in my house for a few days, then they will head up to MN for a while. They will be staying with me from Thursday night until Monday morning. We are planning some site seeing stuff and a family reunion on Sunday. Oh and also my DH has 3 pickup pulls this weekend also.

OK on to the stitching stuff. Here is what I have been working on this last week:

On my BoaF Sampler I got the roof, windows and door in and one and a half sheep done.

Then I started and finished stitching on a new piece called Patriotic Heart 2011 - Quaker style. I saw it on Karen's Handiwork blog and thought it was so cute.
I stitched this up on 25 count white Luguna - I know the picture it looks like blue but it really is white.
and I used DMC floss to stitch it. I am not sure how I am going to finish it but that will have to wait until my house guest have gone.

I need to get on the road so I can get my running around done for today.
I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them
Happy Stitching
