New addition to our household, and being busy

Well things changed a lot over the weekend, multiple different times.
I didn't end up going to 12 hour stitching because of some other things that came up. So I got almost no stitching done. I did finish the stitching and beading on my autumn ornament, but I can't share pics until it's been received by my partner (it's being finished this weekend and then sent next week).

I've not had a lot of time to stitch as I have been working on a political campaign here in town. So that has been taking up A LOT of time.
So no stitchy pictures, sorry.


(please note the next section of the blog is about a new baby snake and there are pictures. If you prefer not to see I understand and hopefully we'll see you back later in the week for my stitching giveaway)
Those that would like to see me share our new pet please proceed below the white box. He's really cute! :)


However I do have some exciting news… we got a new snake!
Many of you will recall that we had to put down Kihone (one of three snakes we had) back in May.
Well it was the reptile show this weekend and there was a guy with lots of hatchlings. As it was my decision to pick out which one (so long as B/F agreed) it was very exciting for me. This is the first animal I've ever had that has been my choice. I adore his plaid looking pattern.
So meet Cronus (named after the Greek Titan), he is a Florida (Brooks) Kingsnake. Just hatched in July.



Isn't he adorable??? :)
I love him already. We can't take him out for a few more days now so that he gets used to his new home. He was very very stressed out when we brought him home from being moved.


Giveaway: I know I promised one. I have not forgotten. I am at my LNS tomorrow night and gonna take a peak around, see what catches my eye. I have package 1 already at home that will be in the giveaway just need to get a package 2. (as I like to have two winners.) :)
So watch for it later this week or early next. It will be coming…

Your new snake is adorable! His patterns are very lovely on him!

That's one adorable snake. We had an alternative (no black) corn snake for many years named Gorgeous George (after the wrestler) and a few pet rats (since we found out George would only eat mice and not rats). We liked the rats, but couldn't raise mice as they were so nasty and smelly. Enjoy your lovely new friend.
