<p>There was once a beautiful princess who lived in the snowy Northeast. Her preferred mode of travel was 4×4 so she traded in her little Honda for a 1998 Grand Cherokee in ‘arrest-me-red’. She loved her Jeep and took very good care of it, changing the oil regularly and bringing it to the car wash once a week. She admired the way the sunlight shone on the screaming red paint and cherished the ease in which she could find her beloved ride in the vast parking lot at ‘Wally-World’.</p> <p>Alas, the princess’ love alone could not sustain the little Jeep and mechanical ‘issues’ arose that were unable to be fixed. The princess was heartbroken but cheered when she realized that perhaps she could get one of those new-fangled hybrid 4×4’s. The search was on for a new royal conveyance. The princess spent many hours online looking at hybrids and to her disappointment found that they were completely and utterly out of the reach of the royal budget. She decided to start going from dealer to dealer and test drove whatever vehicle she sort-of liked. She tried a Torrent and a couple of Hyundai’s but couldn’t really find anything that struck her royal fancy.</p> <p>Then, one cloudy, drizzly day the princess and her prince were walking through the far reaches of the local used car lot when they came upon a lovely shiny black 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee tucked into a back corner. They peered into the windows and exclaimed with delight ‘IT HAS LEATHER HEATED SEATS!!’ and ‘A CD CHANGER!’ Then they realized it was a gas-sucking v8. They did not care. They could not see beyond the glow of the heated seats! They found a salesperson who then took them on a test drive. The prince knew his princess had found a new love when he saw the smile slowly spread across her face while she accelerated out of the parking lot. By the end of the day the shiny black Jeep had been adopted into the royal family and arrangements had been made to trade the old Jeep for the new.</p> <p>A few days later the princess picked up her new car and fell in love with it all over again when she had toasty buns by the time she was two minutes down the road.</p> <p>A couple of weeks passed and the princess noticed that her buns weren’t as toasty as they once were. Thankfully the prince had insisted on purchasing an extended warrantee so she called the dealership and made arrangements to bring her car in to get the toaster fixed ;o) Once there the princess was disappointed with how she was treated by the service department but that was nothing compared to the disappointment when she found out how long it was going to take to get it fixed – two hours! This was not explained on the telephone! This was not going to work! She needed to be home to meet the school bus!! Unfortunately the princess’ buns were not meant to be toasty on that day.</p> <p>Another week passed and the princess decided that she just couldn’t live with the situation anymore. She swallowed her pride and called the dealership to make arrangements to leave her baby there to be worked on while she toiled at her desk job.</p> <p>This brings us to present day – hopefully the princess’ buns will be toasty on the ‘morrow!</p>

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
