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!

No stitchy news today. I am working so much OT this week, it's crazy. I am hoping to stitch some this weekend, when I finally have some time off!!

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!!

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!

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.
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!
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!

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!

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!

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!
DH gave me a GC for www.123stitch.com
for my bday!!! I'm off to shop for stitchy stuff!!! I will post a pic when it all arrives!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
