Star Wars

A few weeks ago, I asked my second youngest grandson, Daniel, what he wanted for his birthday on Sept. 29. His reply surprised me. He wanted me to take him to the mall to the Build-a-Bear store and the Lego store. So last Sunday off we went and this is what we came home with. First of all meet Darth Panda(his mask is off for the picture).

Then after a pretzel at Aunt Annie's shop we were off to the Lego store where we found a StarWars Lego kit that he loved and a little Star Wars guy on a key chain.

I've been stitching some smalls and reading about ways to finish them in many wonderful blogs. After emailing Faye, who finishes such great smalls, I decided to get some crushed walnut shells to use instead of fiber fill or doll pellets. So off I headed to my local Pet Smart and told the young guy working there that I wanted some crushed walnut shells that were used for lizard or bird litter and he led me straight to the ----bird seed and that was the last I saw of him. I finally found the lizard litter and didn't realize there were so many to choose from, but finally found what I wanted.

This week I've been stitching on Raise the Roofs Libertyville and have almost finished part one.

Have a great weekend and happy stitching!

You are such a cool grandmother, Kathy! :) Your grandson is a cutie patootie. I remember how crazed my son was over Star Wars at that age. Fun memories. :)

Love your start!! I can't wait to see more. I'm anxious to hear about your walnut shell finishing, too.

Darth Panda ~ LOL!

Pretty new start. You will like the walnut shells ~ they smell nice and give such a nice weight to your pincushions.
