Introducing Blackie...

Here's Blackie! He's a quiet little boy, but LOVES his head rubbed. He just comes over and sits beside you waiting for you to notice and give him some love. He gets so excited, he drools!!! He looks just like my boy furbaby I lost a little over a year ago. I hope you all enjoyed meeting my Aunt's 4 children. I love them all!!

I got a chance to go to The Lazy Daizy today!! I'm so excited. I really like this LNS. It's really a shame that the store has been there since 1982, and I just found out about it! Fear not, I will go back! I picked up a couple patterns while there, but made sure I was on the mailing list and frequent buyer plan!!! Yippie!

All for now! Happy Stitching!

Introducing Snowball.....

Hey Ya'll,

My Aunt has 4 beautiful furbabies. I would like to show them off for her!! This is Snowball. She is the only female kitty in the house. She has a little thyroid problem and is on meds, poor thing, but she is looking great and feeling much better! I will introduce you to the other 3 later in the week. Each of them will get their OWN post!!

A Little Progress...

Hi Ya'll,
I decided to stitch Magic Hat on opals fabby. Royalty Flair from Enchanted Fabrics. It will look great once it's complete, but I'm a little nuts stitching the snowman (under the hat is the beginning of a snowman) because he blends into the fabric badly. He will be outlined in black so he'll jump right off the fabric soon enough I guess, LOL. The hat is done except for the red berries. I haven't decided if I will do the french knots or use beads.
I am hoping to get some stitchy time this weekend, but am working day shifts, AND working some overtime, so we'll see.
Well, guess I'll get back to the Olympics. I'm waiting to see diving tonight!!

A little stitching....

Hi All,

I'm back from SC! I had a wonderful visit with my Aunt, and her 4 furbabies! On the way back home, we got stuck in stop and go traffic for almost 2 hrs. There was a road crew doing some sort of paving AND a tree service trimming trees by the highway, both within one exit of each other. Can we get a little more organized with time please?!?! Anyway, I did get a little stitching time in on Saturday. I worked on the monthly SAL for SanMan Originals. It's called Magic Hat. I will post a pic in a couple days. Not too much else going on right now!

GO PHELPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TGIF part 2!!

OK, this is my Precious Moments WIP. Part of Me Wants to be Good. Haven't stitched on this one in a little while. Guess it needs to be added back into rotation! It's for me, so I don't feel the pressure to get it done quickly!

This is my Magic Hat WIP. It's a SanMan Originals board member chart. It's part of a monthly SAL. This one will go with me to SC this weekend!

The Dachshund piece! This one is for a Christmas present for one of my sorority sisters. The top pic is what it will look like finished, minus the frame. This one will be finished as a cube. I already have the perfect fabric for the backing.

Hi All,

My boss surprised me with getting off work a little early today! This NEVER happens in an emergency center, but we were pretty slow today, and with us working so much OT, she thought we deserved it! This means I got a little stitchy time in!


Hi All,

It's Friday, yahoo! I haven't gotten in too much stitching time in the last couple days, but I did start a new project. It's Magic Hat from SanMan Originals. I really love the design! This piece is part of a monthly SAL for board members. I hope to post a WIP pic next week.

I'm off to SC this weekend to visit my Aunt! I can't wait! Chat more later! Have a good weekend!

Happy Tuesday!!

OK, here they are! I have completed 6 of these Soldier Kissing Pillows (more info on previous post). I have some wonderful sorority sisters who are stitching some also, but I think I am done. I still have a couple more projects to complete by Christmas, so I need to focus on those.

I love this piece. So simple, but says so much! Not to mention HOPE is my middle name!!! I think I may finish this as a no-sew cube. I have a cute little bear who would make a great partner to this finish, and maybe raffle them off for breast cancer?!?!?! Hmmmm...just a thought!

That's all for now!

My Stash Arrived and LHN finished!!

***Happy Dancin'*** My Bday stitchy stash arrived! A little Lizzie Kate, My Big Toe, Stitch Kitty, and more! I decided to try the John James gold plated petite needles, and got a needle minder. I have found when I do have a little time to stitch at work, I lay the needles down only to get lost in the abyss!!

Finally!! I thought I would get around to finishing this piece last weekend, but instead, spent most of my time off working in the house. I have finally got all my stitchy stuff in one room! Now I'm waiting to find the perfect chair that is comfy and will be suitable for hours and hours of happy stitching!!

I'm on night shift this weekend, and have mandatory training on one of my two days off next week, so I don't think I will get in much stitching in the next few days! A week from today I am going to visit my Aunt in SC!! I can't wait to see her! Guess that's all for now!

Top of the Mornin'

Hi All,

Tonight I've been working on my LHN piece. I was almost finished and realized that I had a section I miscounted somehow. Guess who paid me a visit?!?!?! Darn FROG!!! I will finish the LHN piece tomorrow or Sunday and post a pic. I also got a chance to work on the Dachshund piece. It's coming along pretty well. I will post a progress pic of that one as well.

Well, I'm off this weekend, whoo hoo! Tomorrow I will be sleeping part of the day (coming off night shifts) and then hoping to hang out with my childhood friend that I was recently reconnected with! Then back home to do the dreaded laundry, LOL. Sunday is church with Granny, then off to do some scrapbooking with my sorority sisters!
