**EDITED**Cory's birthday, a SMO finish and my first dishrag

Cory's birthday was Friday. I took him a personal pan pizza and ate lunch with him and played on the playground then brought cupcakes later in the day. We had a good time together. We had his party Sunday. I thought this cupcake cake would be idea and it wasn't SOOO learn from my mistake. These were so messy. The icing was everywhere. There was literally enough icing for another cake.

Here is a small finish from SMO. I'd like to make it into something special. I think I'll look through my ribbon and make it into wrap for a candle jar.
Here's what I came up with for a candle wrap. I think it turned out pretty good for just an idea, lol. My fabric was too small to go around the jar so I pieced it together with some ribbon. Thinking now I want a new wrap for every holiday.

My daughter came home from school one day wanting to crochet. Like always she gave up so I thought I'd try again. I watched a few videos on youtube and made this dishrag. It could def. be better but I'm proud of my first try. Cory liked it so much he wanted 2 so he cut this one. Nice huh???

Me and some Old finishes

I've been too lazy to get the pictures off my camera, mainly because I thought I'd have a finish this week. Since I didn't I decided to go ahead and upload my pictures.

I always wonder what my friends look like. As most of my groupers know I am now a member of weight watchers. This first picture was taken the day after I started 9/3/2011. Now mind you I HATE having my picture taken and I had no makeup on and my hair wasn't fixed. Cory was playing with my camera and this was the result of it. I kept it as a reminder of where I started.

Here's a head shot I took 10/27. I dyed my hair a dark brown after I took this. I've lost 15 pounds to date and can't tell much but in my face. So here I am :)
Here's my little cowboy for Halloween. He has the mean cowboy look down pat, lol. This was taken at his school Halloween party. He was waiting in line for the school parade and said he was bored. I love my little cowboy :)
On the stitching front I've finished these a while ago. The first is the seasonal SAL from Novalee. Looking forward to the last one so I can hang it on the wall.
And this is the Oak Haven SAL. I have November all ready to stitch, just haven't had the time to do any stitching this week. Hopefully I'll get it done this week.
That's it, nothing too exciting. Hope I'll have a few finishes to share next week.
