Can I Get a "Hoot Hoot"?

And the first half of Hoot is done! Woohoo! *insert happy dance*

I stitched in the rest of the grass, finished the green border, stitched in the last four pumpkins, the two trees, and the two owls. Done! That is, of course, except for the beading, which I'm going to leave to the end. Beading is not my favorite thing in the world.

I'm going to have to put Hoot aside for now. I'm taking off to visit my family in Kuwait for a week. My baby sister (I've got three younger sisters, and between the youngest and I there's a ten-year difference) graduated high school a month ago and she's off to my mother's home state, North Carolina, to go to college. She's got Type 1 diabetes, though (that's the kind you're born with and can never cure) so my mom's going to be moving with her to make sure she stays healthy. Anyway, long story short, I'm off to visit them before they move!

While I'm there I'm going to be working on my Tutti Frutti exchange piece. Lots of ideas on Pinterest, and I think I've decided on which one I'm making my partner. So I'll see you all next week!

Happy xxx's!

Yay! Congrats on your HOOT finish! It's adorable. Beading is also not my favourite thing in the world but once you get into it, you stick to it :D Have fun in Kuwait! How's Ramadan so far?! Hugs!
