  1. Something is definitely wrong!

    05/22/08 01:39:02 | 0 Comments

    There is something definitely wrong around here latelyimage It's May 21 and I'm sitting here in flannel lounge pants with flannel shirt! It hasn't been above 60 for several days and it gets to about 40 at night! This is May folks! Not March or October! Where is my sun? and warmth? Oh, wait! Supposed to get up to 70 on Thursday, and then a little warmer by the weekendimage

    Have been working on Bad Faerie (challenge piece for Yahoo group) and mostly on Dragon Carousel this past week. Have a challenge on one of my Yuku boards this weekend to finish page 1 of DC and (hopefully) page 2 of BF. Hope I can get them done. If it's as nice as they say, will be stitching outside!image

    I turned my mattress over yesterday and took off my heated mattress pad and this morning I was awakened at 3:25 am due to extreme seizing up of my legs, back and neck due to the coolness of my bed! I have been crippled by that all day! So tonite, am planning to sleep in sweats and turn my heated throw on medium (at least!)

    Have a great Memorial Day Weekend everyone!

  2. Well, its May at last!

    Yes, it's May finally, but so far the weather hasn't realized it much. Yes, we have had a few warm days, but not so many that it feels like spring. Mothers Day was spent watching a bunch of wind and tornado watches! Then came the rain! I spent most of the day just sitting with my feet propped up stitching on The Priestess. I have gotten my last batch of patterns in mail on Saturday. Now I'm just waiting on a batch of fabric that a lady from another board is sending me. She has a batch of Aida (in colors) that she doesn't want and with all the free downloaded patterns I have, I'm sure I can find something to put on all that fabric.
    I just wish the fabby from SBB would come in. I have decided to buy nothing else for a while. The next thing I will buy will be the bling needed for PR's The Night and Circe. That way I will have it ready for when I can start them. I have gotten a litttle work done on Celtic Spring but not much.
    This past week (5-7) I spent doing some serious housework. I spent Monday (5) cleaning 6 hours just in the bathroom alone! Scrubbing down walls, floor, windows and commode. Then I put blinds up on window. On Tuesday (6) I spent 6 1/2 hours in youngest son's room! Boy, needed a hazmat suit for that one! Took me forever in there! Had to get on knees and scrape floor where he had spilt pop, food, etc. Then cleaned windows and all sheets on his bed. But it looks great now! Wednesday(7) I spent 8 hours in living/dining room along with kitchen. Moving furniture around and redoing hardwood floors, so the floors will be shiny again!
    By the time Thursday rolled around, could hardly get out of bed! Didn't even pick up a needle until Friday! Too much pain! Then Friday was payday, so that meant running around and paying bills, going grocery shopping (an entirely too depressing thing to do anymore), so when I got home from that, passed out for a while. So all in all, didn't get very much stitching done last week at all!
    Hope to do much much better this week! Have signed up for a SAT on a board I'm on and I plan on blowing the competition away! Then on the 15th, will be starting a 3 month contest to see who can match the goal they have given on a brand new MS pattern! Fun fun fun!
    Everyone have a great week!
  3. Keep forgetting to blog

    04/24/08 10:03:52 | 0 Comments

    Sorry, folks but I keep forgetting to add to my blog sometimes. Not much of a blogger I guess. It's finally beginning to feel like Spring around here now. Sun is shining, flowers are blooming, grass needs mowing, and I can sit outside and stitch! That's what I did yesterday! Sat outside for about 3 hours and just soaked in some sun and rays and stitched! I loved every bit of it. Took my portable DVD player outside and just enjoyed the day! May just have to do it again today since tomorrow it is supposed to rain. Finally got my 2nd order from Mystic Stitch, but still haven't gotten my first! Go figure that one out! And everytime I write an email all I get is an automatic response saying she is out of town from the 15th to the 20th; but yesterday was the 23rd! Guess she hasn't gotten around to reading her email yet. I have started on The Priestess by MS, and I have taken the advice given about starting in the upper left corner and it is easier, much easier than starting in the middle. So much easier that I am seriously considering putting away OWM for a while and then starting all over it! Haven't been working too much on Dragon Carousel lately, have been some secret stitching on something. Should have that pretty much finished by today or tomorrow at latest.
    Need to get some housecleaning done soon though. DH says to just let the boys do it and I told him that is what I have been waiting for the past 5 months, and nothing has been done. So, of course, it's left to me. Slightly over worked myself on Tuesday when I cut the grass. Was so bad yesterday couldn't have done anything even if Iwanted to! That's why it felt so good being outside and just sitting in the sun!
    Well, until the next time I remember to blog! Happy Stitching!

  4. Made it through today

    04/02/08 03:08:01 | 0 Comments

    Well, I made it through another April 1st. Not so hard this year, but still had a few rough times throughout the day. It still doesn't seem like 6 years have passed since Dad died. I miss him just as much as ever. I always heard time helps heal, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I didn't do much today, not even much stitching. Just didn't feel like doing anything except crawling in a hole and waiting for the day to get over with. Now I just have to get through the next few days and I'll be okay until next year!

  5. Haven't blogged for a while so..

    Thought I would quickly post a blog and celebrate a Happy Dance at the same time!image Finished Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace by PR tonite. Didn't get much stitching time in today, but did get her finished! Both my younger boys were baptized this morning and then my mother took us all out to eat and then I had some errands to run. After I got home, I was so tired and sore, I fell asleep. Woke up and started stitching. Will be starting on Dragon Carousel soon. Ordered the fabric from PTP and should be shipped out on Tuesday. Can't wait to start on that one! Until then, will continue work on Fairy Celebration and OWM. Might start another one, but not sure yet.
