Jolly Jack, and a new project

Good Morning everyone, OK so I have not gone to bed yet and it is 1:00am in the morning.
 I have been babysitting little ones this evening and one of them cried himself to sleep. I felt so bad for him. I don't think his parent leave him very often. So the house is quiet once more and I have caught up on my blog reading and I have a few pictures to show.
In my last post I announced that SoCal Debbie was the next lucky person to get Jolly Jack, I have not heard if she recieved it yet but I hope so. I also stated that my daughter had my camera so I was unable to take pictures of my finish well the camera is back and here is the finish

My niece was home last weekend for the baby shower that I talked about in my last post. We got to get together a couple of time and did some stitching together. And she was the one that got the baby photo frame that I finished up last week. Before Chrissy left to go home to Pella she asked me to finish her baby sampler that she had started because with her newborn and going back to work she didn't think she would get it done so of course I said I would work on it.
This is what it will look like when completed

and this is as of 9/28/2012
she had a good start on it and I have put in about 825 stitches
since I have been working on it.

 Hopefully I can get some better pictures later maybe when the sun comes up.
I have 10 more days until I leave  to attend our stitchers retreat at Lake Shetek in MN. There are about 40 ladies signed up to attend. Should be a great weekend getaway as I have not gotten to go for a couple of years.
Before I end this post I have one more picture to show and that is of my son.
He was so pumped
It was his first buck with a bow
He has been following this bucks movements for some time now. He has the special cameras that take picture of any animals that walk past it, and  what time of day it is. I don't think we will be able to get the grin off his face for a few days to come.
OK it time for me to get off to bed and get a few hours of sleep.
Happy Stitching

Great finish, and a great start on the new project. Congrats to your son on his buck! My hubby went out on Friday with no luck, but there's plenty of time left in the season.
