This is all the progress on Spring Angel for now.
Sunday, November 24, 2013
Well I have stitched a lot on this all week.
Movies I watched this week:
Think Like A Man- I was surprised that I liked this.
Iron Lady- Better than I thought it would be
The Thanksgiving House - Hallmark movie - Loved it!
Puppy Love - Hallmark movie I had DVRd a while ago - Loved it
Under The Dome - Stephen King 13 week series. Not sure if it was a mini series that started in the summer and continues or if it is all done with episode 13. I just finished episode 9. I am really enjoying this series I will finish it tomorrow night.
I will continue stitching on this piece through next Saturday and then will pick another UFO to stitch on during December. I have about 15 UFOS that I started in January and some are quick stitches and can be done in a week. I am hoping their number comes up soon so I can have a finish :-)

Since my last post, I had fallen really hard and did damage to my left leg. When I had gotten to Myrtle Beach, for the Pals Cross Stitch retreat, it had gotten worse. I went to the ER and was diagnosed with Cellulitis. So I was on antibiotics and pain pills. Not allowed to go shopping or walk the beach. I did get to stitch a lot. I also had a lot of fun anyways.
I also found a new home for our dog, or I should say my hubby did. She was hyper 24/7 and she wouldn't listen to me at all. I couldn't put a leash on her as she would try to bite at me. She is now at a home with a lot of land and 2 other dogs that she can play with. She goes on 5 mile hikes and seems much happier there. I gave it almost a full year and feel like I had failed her. I have owned several other dogs and 1 I trained as a puppy and never had this problem.
My stitching mojo is back and I have been stitching on Spring Angel by Joan Elliott.
I also have been reading again. Right now I am reading Sex, Lies, and Vampires by Katie Macalister. It's ok.
I am hoping to update my blog weekly now. I also should have some news to share with all of you by the end of the week. I need to have it official by then.

I am coming back to the world of cross stitching and reading again. I have had a lot going on and was in a funk. I haven't stitched since May. Read about 2 books since then. Been depressed and just a lot going on but I am taking my life back and bringing the happy things back into my life.
I even revamped my facebook and got rid of a lot of people and will be getting rid of a few more this week.
So what have I been doing. Well I have been playing a lot of Sims 3 and I mean A LOT!! I have had a lot of fun doing it to. I have been watching the LPs on You Tube and learning more of playing the game. If any of you are Sim 3 players please let me know, I only have my son, Justin to talk to about it.
I haven't watched any movies this summer and the only tv shows I watched were General Hospital and Pretty Little Liars. I DVRd all of True Blood and will be watching the series this whole week. I am also DVRing The Dome which is based on the Stephen King book. Also The Cove series by Nora Roberts that has been on.
I will post once a week and share my progress of stitching, reading, shows I watched and maybe a little Sims 3 talk.
I don't get to read to many blogs anymore since my internet server is strict on my data usage and no longer start at 0 when the new bill comes in. It is a 30 day rolling system and with 2 of us using the internet it makes it hard to do much. Cable won't come down my road and neither will the phone company for DSL so I am stuck.
I have pulled out HAED Literate Dragon and will finish page 1 before moving onto something else from my UFO pile.
I am catching up on Janet Evanvoich. I just finished Notorious Nineteen and am now reading Wicked Appetite.
General Hospital has been great, mad about a few dragged out things and happy about others.
Loved how Pretty Little Liars ended for the summer. I also watched the season finale of Supernatural, today. Then started True Blood and will continue with this for the week.
During Christmas time I stopped watching Revenge all together and really want to pick up where I left off. I did DVR the season finale but hoping the season is now on CD so I can buy it.
Alot of new shows starting this fall and will give them a fair share.
I have been watching LPs on You Tube by QUXXN. She passed away in July and it was very sad as a fan of her channel. I just finished up with her LPs for Showtime. I have decided not to watch her LPs anymore that she had and will find someone new to watch. I played Appaloosa Plains from the Pets expansion pack and actually had my sim be a horse person. That was playing outside my comfort zone but I had a blast with it. I then was reading the forums and challenges that are out there. So I bought Monte Vista world and made my own challenge based on another challenge out there. I had a sim be a man whore lol. I put the aging on epic and had him be an author and he makes a lot of simoleons ( money) and have a female sim move in with him til she gives birth. I move her out and move in another sim to have a baby with. He raises them and if you want more details you can ask if you want to so I don't take up a lot of time on here. I am stopping this challenge for a little bit and getting ready to play Starlight Shores that came with the Showtime expansion pack. I can not wait to play that.
My inlaws had moved into the nursing home a few months ago and my FIL has gone down hill. He is now in hospice and doesn't have much time left. Please keep us all in your prayers.
We also had major roofing leaking as in buckets and pots and pans all through my bedroom, laundry room and hallway. The roof is fixed and now have to replace ceiling tiles and floors.
Dylan is supposedly a father of maybe 2 so that is on my mind all the time. Long story there and not something I want to get into on here but could use your prayers there as well.
Justin got promoted at Target as a team leader for food. He is liking that a lot. He wants to get an apartment but can't afford it on his own. So he is still at home and helping out here when he can.
Scott is still as busy with his 2 jobs as before. Then he worked on the roof during the weekends when he could. Now finding time to replace things inside the house..
Well I guess that is all it in a nutshell of what has been going on in my life for a few months. Some good, some not so good. I am learning to be happy again and keep the others from bringing me down. I did have a 30th class reunion and I have one every 5 years but this was the best one ever. It started on a Thursday night and lasted through Saturday night. Weather was perfect too.
I will post again in a week.

I know, I know. I have been MIA since february. I have been stitching, honest I have.
Here is my progress
I am hoping to get back into blogging again. I sure do miss it. Not much else going on here. Same thing lol. I know a boring life. I have decided to to do TUSAL and IHSW. Just stitching for fun now and I don't think I will do more HAED SALs except for maybe the ones by artist. But not the yearly ones. I am missing out on my other stitching this year. But you ever know if I will change my mind lol. After all this is only April of this year. There is also a sale on the HAED site for Mother's Day and I am thinking of buying me a few charts. Not like I need any more. I have enough for a lifetime.
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
I have been working away on HAED Literate Dragon. It is a SAL with the BB.
I started an ornament from the JCS 2003 ornament issue. It is I love Christmas by Gloria & Pat designs. I am stitching this on 28 ct evenweave.
I also received 3 HAED charts in the mail.
Sunday, February 17, 2013
I didn't get to stitch Friday night but I did all day yesterday and today. I made pretty good progress on HAED Literate Dragon.
Friday night Scott took me out for our Valentine's dinner. Very good meal. Second time at the restaurant. Tillman's Inn and it is in Albion. Corners of 98 and 104.
Dylan had my car today so Justin took me grocery shopping. I don't like our town's store called Tops. I LOVE Wegmans so we went there. Anyways we load up the car and they key won't turn at all in the ignition. It did this the other day and he got it to work. We even called Dylan to come save us and he got some tools and still couldn't fix it. We transferred the groceries into my car and left Justin's car there. He will take care of it tomorrow.The store is open 24 hours and well lit so it will be ok there. Dylan found out that there is a recall on the ignition of the car so hopefully it will be fixed without a problem.
So I ended up watching all this past week's Home & Family shows from the Hallmark channel, while I stitched. I am hoping this week I can get more progress done on this piece.

Sunday was TUSAL and here is a pic of my orts. In it are the threads from HAED Aurora's Garden and HAED Literate Dragon.
I also have a progress pic of HAED Literate Dragon
This weekend is also IHSW and I will still be stitching on this. Who else will be joining?
Does anyone else watch General Hospital. If you do what are your thoughts on the the show now? I do like that they have brought back some of the characters but the storyline with the vampires is losing my interest in the show. I have already stopped watching a couple of night shows ecause they are just dragging things out.
Reading wise I did finish listening to Fatally Flakey by Diane Mott Davidson. I am ready to listen to Crunch Time by her. I am still reading The Long Quiche Goodbye by Avery Aames.
Had quite a bit of snow last weekend but the temps came up so most of it is gone.
Sunday, February 03, 2013
I finished HAED Aurora's Garden!!
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
I have been stitching but not as much as I would like. Work has not slowed down and I am tired when I get home. Then there is cooking and cleaning to do lol.
Anyways here are my Orts for TUSAL
They are Orts from HAED Boo by Spangler

I wish you all a Happy New Year.
I have a new start to the New Year. I am doing a SAL with a few other stitchers on HAED Boo by Randal Spangler. I did quite a bit today and it is being put away for it's next rotation.
I will be stitching on HAED Aurora's Garden til it is finished. I also have another SAL to start this week. It is with the HAED BB and is Randal Spangler's Literate Dragon. Just waiting for the first page to be emailed to me.
Did anyone watch the Tournament of Roses Parade? Beautiful floats and a moving float with the military and a husband was on a float to see his wife and son.
I took down all holiday decorations and ornaments off the tree. I did leave up snowmen and winter items because winter is still here til March.
Then I pulled out my Wii and worked out with Sports for 40 minutes. Felt pretty good. My favorites are bowling and boxing. I get right into the boxing and get a good workout.
I have also been watching a lot of Christmas movies that I had DVRd from Hallmark and Lifetime channels.
Well I am heading to bed with my book and hopefully can read a little bit before falling asleep. I am also hoping to post more on my blog.

I also am doing the SAL for Country Cottages Santa Village. They will go into my rotation for the new year. I also still plan on finishing as many of my WIP/UFOs as I can.
Have a Merry Christmas!

HAED QS Fragile Heart. I started her for a SAL on the HAED BB. I loved stitching on her and am thinking of putting her on a black tote bag.
Saturday, November 17, 2012
This weekend is IHSW so I will be stitching as much as possible and hoping to finish HAED QS Fragile Heart by Thanksgiving.
This is how far I am right now.
Thanks for looking and the comments. Sorry I have not had the time to look at anyones blogs. Work hours have been crazy and when I get home, eat dinner and do some laundry all that I want to do is stitch.

Thursday, October 25, 2012
This was the 15th annual Pals Fall Fling and I have gone to 10 of them. I am getting ready to save for next year.
First stop was in Manning, SC to Amy's from Down Sunshine Lane. We all sat out by her pool.
Then Tuesday we left to for Myrtle Beach and this was the view from my room. We stayed at the Springmaid resort.
I walked the beach every morning
One of the nights as the sun was going down.
Now onto the stitching fun.
