Happy Tuesday!!

Whew, almost time to get off work, thank goodness! It's been an awfully long night!! Anyways, I wanted to hop on and wish everyone a Happy New Year!! I won't be logging on for a few days (still no laptop) but wanted to tell you all what I was doing on New Year's Eve. DH bought tickets to tour the Biltmore House in Asheville,NC and then to the special night time show they are having this year! I've never been there during the holidays and can't wait to see all the trees decorated!! I am planning on taking LOTS of pictures! I will post some when I get a new computer!

As for stitchy stuff...still poking along on a Noah's Ark birth sampler for my sorority sister who is due in April. It's a really cute design. I finished up the LOVE stamp. It was a really fun quick stitch that has been on my to do pile for years, so I am happy to have it completed.

Well, guess that's all for now. See you in 2009!!

The Dachshund is finished!!! I am making him into a no sew cube and will be gifting it on Sunday afternoon! I will post a picture when I get my new computer.

On that note, the insurance paperwork was sent off yesterday, thanks DH. So....I guess now we wait. I am hoping that we can get a price for cashing out and taking deprecation before moving forward. I just don't want to end up with a "whatever" brand computer and not be happy. I would rather lose some money and get what I want, ya know?!?!?

I started a new piece...yeah, I know, that start-itis again, lol! This one is really simple and a quick stitch. It's a LOVE stamp, like a postage stamp. It's pretty neat. I may try my hand at a flat fold for finishing this one, but we'll see.

All for now...take care, and see ya back here soon!

Happy Sunday!!

Hi All,

I am at work, but it's really slow today, so I've been working on a little stitching!! I have made a lot of progress on the Dachshund, but am unable to post a pic right now since my laptop was stolen. I promise....there will be a pic soon, but it may be a finish not a progress one. *happy dancin'*

Well, better get back to it! Have a great day!

Laptop stolen!!!

Hello all! Our house was broken into yesterday. Two laptops and a flat screen TV stolen. I am SO upset about my laptop!! It's not the laptop itself, but all the data on the hard drive. I've now lost all my pictures, music and TONS of cross stitch patterns, both freebies and pdf paid for copies of patterns. I can't replace those things! UGH! My computer was password protected, so the clowns who stole it can't use it, but I'm afraid that means they will just trash it instead of taking it to a pawn shop. BAH HUMBUG!!!

On a higher note...I met Rachael Ray yesterday! She was in NC doing a book signing for her new cookbook. I got my pic taken with her, so hopefully when I can get my hands on a copy, I will post it!

I'm sleepy!!!

This cat has the right idea!! I am on night shift right now, and am SO ready to go home and get some shut eye! The first night back is always hard for me, because I don't get enough sleep during the day.

Good news is....I got a little stitching time in last night. Maybe about 2 hours. I am making progress on my little Dachshund and am hoping to finish him this weekend. I will post another progress picture on Thursday.

All for now!!

A Little Progress....



Hi All,
I managed to get about 4 hours of stitching in over the last couple nights. I am working some more overtime tonight, so won't have time to stitch, but hope to get some more stitching in maybe over the weekend. Check back in later!
