Stitching Blogger's Question

Have you ever just quit a project while in the midst of it? (We're not referring to UFOs here, rather projects that you know that you'll never work on again.) Why? What did you do with it - throw it out,give it away, put it away?
I have always finished my UFOs but I do remember I did start stitching a halloween piece on a orange handkerchief and just did not like it so I quit and threw it out.

Yesterday I finished my Halloween exchange so today I need to do the finishing on it. Came out cute but I can't post a pic :-)

DS#1 had a soccer game last night and our team won 3-0. He has another game tonight against DHs Alma Mater but it is pouring so much that I doubt I will go plus DS#2 has some health issues and has an appointment this afternoon.

I didn't get in any reading time yesterday but I did play some games on the computer LOL.

Went Shopping

Dh had to run some errands for work. So he asked me to go along and I asked if he would take me to the LNS as I had to buy for a grab bag. I go to Myrtle Beach next month for the Cross Stitch Pals convention/reunion. Then for myself I bought the JCS ornament issue and already made a list of what I want to do LOL, 6 Mill Hill Kits for a RR. Then we stopped at Borders and I bought a book, The Pact by Jodi Picoult. It is for a group read and sounds awesome.
I go to Curves this morning and then a few of us will go out for breakfast afterwards. We do this the 4th Wednesday of every month.
DS#1 has a soccer game tonight so I will be going to that.
I am stitching on a Halloween exchange and I am hoping it will be done today. I am just trying to figure out how I will finish it.
I am still reading Midnight Flight by VC Andrews and didn't even pick it up to read yesterday. I need to finish it so I can listen to audio books.

Good Morning

Yesterday was a great day! I worked out at Curves and went grocery shopping. Pulled out an ornament to stitch on while watching a taped show: Veronica Mars season finale from the spring.

I finished Bunny by Debbie Mumm. Then I started snowman by Debbie Mumm. Today i will stitch on I Shall Wear Purple by Sue Hillis. I think that is next in rotation.

DS#1 had a soccer game last night and our team won 3-0. They played against the school that I graduated from. This makes 8 wins and 1 loss for us, woohoo!!

I am reading Midnight Flight by VC Andrews and am enjoying it. This is a 2 part series. Then there is 1 series left for me to read but I am waiting for them all to be published before I start it. I did get a call from the library that the 2 audiobooks that I wanted, came in. Wolves of The Calls and Song For Susannah by Stephen King.

Everyone have a great day!!!

SBQ of the week

What is the most challenging specialty stitch you have ever stitched?

I am still trying to figure out how to do the hem stitch for my NRs. It took me awhile for I believe the herringbone stitch and then once I got stitching more it was easier.

Good Morning

I have a busy weekend planned so won't have time to post much here. I had a dinner last night with all my inlaws as it was DH's parents 55th Wedding Anniversary. Today and tomorrow I go to Six Flags for their International Festival and eat all kinds of foods. Today I go with DH as a date. Tomorrow I tale DS#1, my mom, sister and her DH.

Got weighed and measured yesterday. Lost another 2 lbs , 2 1/2" , .9% Body fat and 3lb fat mass. That is a toal of 22 lbs, 19" and I think 9 lbs fat mass. I am excited about that!!

Stitching wise I started bunny ornament by Debbie Mumm, The Storyteller by Teresa Wentzler.

Reading Midnight Flight by V.C. Andrews and am almost done reading all of her books. I have the new series to read and that is it. Then some club reads to do and I have bookshelves that i need to read off of.

Everyone have a great weekend!!!!

Starting over with a new blog since my other 2 people couldn't post to or see. I have had a very busy couple of months. My last grandparent passed away 2 weeks ago. I have been reading alot but just starting to pull out my stitching again. I also have been in charge of the middle school Book Fair since last Wednesday. Please bear with me while I learn how to use this blog and get up links and such. Before you know it I will be posting daily again :-) To all of my friends who have had problems with my other blogs please let me know how this one is and start commenting :-) Miss you and love you all.
