Ninth Finish For 2008

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
Ha-lle-lu-jah!!!!

She's done! DONE! DONE! DONE!

DONE!

Can you hear all that shouting? Well, that would be me because Tot is DONE!!!! Tout fini :o)

So...without further ado, may I present Halloween Fairy (Tot) by Nora Corbett -

I cannot tell you 'how' happy I am to finally have her finished. Whew! And I probably couldn't have done it without you guys pushing me to do so. You all deserve a HUGE thank you :o)

I made a few changes with Tot but nothing that is seriously noticeable. I really didn't like the light coloured thread for the backstitching on her hands so mine is dark and her thumbs harder to see but that's okay with me. I also used just one strand of Kreinik throughout. Now, Tot will go into hiding for a bit because my eyes need a break ;o)

I was supposed to go see my Gram today but seeing that everything was going against me since the alarm went off, I decided to put it off until tomorrow. I'm a little excited because I'm going to be bringing a little friend with me. Moncton has one of 'the' best framers around here so Stargazer is going in for an estimate and possibly a frame :o) Fingers crossed that it will be in my price range.

Things here are progressing nicely. As I already stated in my November 4 post, I do have an apartment for December 1. I know some of you were wondering if the 'kids' will be able to come with me :o) Yes and no. Brie will come to live with me but Duncan and Pickles will be going down to my in-laws. I was going to keep Pickles with me as well but due to my lack of space, he'll be on an extended vacation.

I've called around and now have enough quotes from moving companies. All I need to do now is make a decision of which one to go with. My plan is to pack most of the items myself but they'll be packing all breakables. I'm aiming to have them here the second week of December. So between now and then, I have to pick up some boxes and pack my share, as well as arrange for a dumpster in order to 'dispense' of the 'junk'. LOL!

As far as I know, my email address will remain the same until we move out of province. DH set me up with a cell phone before he left so that will take over as my main phone line. In a few weeks, I'm going to the post office to rent a PO Box therefore my address and phone number will be changing. I will be having my mail forwarded though so hopefully that will pick up any stragglers left behind :o)

How organized does that make me sound? LOL! One thing I do know, it's going to be a very busy two weeks in December :oS

Jennifer said...

WOO HOO!!! She's quite lovely!

Before you make a decision on a mover, google your top choices and see if there are any complaints or anything about them out on the web. Also, if you have the equivalent of the Better Business Bureau in Canada, it never hurts to check with them. Good luck wiht the move!

Lelia said...

YAY : ) She is so kewl

~Tammy said...

Look at you go! On ToT and your organizational skills. I'm proud of you!

ToT is gorgeous. She is the next piece I want to start. Finishing something first would be the best place to start, I think!
