Stitcher's Blogger exchange

I joined the Christmas ornament exchange and received this yesterday from Shaz ( Sharoola) and I just love it. It is finished as a flat fold and came out so great. Plus she made the Christmas card and there was a store bought ornament of a stuffed santa as well :-) Thank you so much!!

I am still stitching on the model piece and sports ornaments. I am listening to audiobooks while stitching and just finished The Summer I Dared by Barbara Delinsky. I will be starting Sleeping Beauty by Phillip Margolin.

Good Morning

It is still blustery out and getting more and more snow. We have Thanksgiving today with my inlaws but don't have far to go. Maybe 5 miles.
Thanksgiving day went well and my dad looked good and seemed almost himself.
I am still stitching away on the model piece plus stitching on sports ornaments in the evenings. I have started to read Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz. I didn't get a chance to read The Resort and had to put it back into chain. If no one wants it then I will hold onto it for another time.
I did watch Anne Of Green Gables, Anee of Green Gables the Sequel, and Anne Of Green Gables The Continuing Story, all week while stitching. They were good :-) I took out 5 audiobooks from the library to listen to while stitching. With the snow falling it is that time of year when I stay holed up in the house unless DH is driving. I do NOT drive in any snow whatsoever LOL. Not even a dusting.

Blogger question of the week

Do you always sign your projects? If not, why? If so, do you use your first name, initials or what?

No, I don't. I do if I give it away as a gift. I sign my intials and the year. I don't know why I don't. I did for a few years and then stopped. Just one of those things I guess :-)


I hope that you all have a great day and safe traveling. We are going to my parent's house along with my sister and BIL. We are eating around 3pm and then we play cards. I will watch the Macy Thanksgiving Day parade and will DVR the dog show.

Blustery Day

It is windy, rainy and snowy. No accumalations yet. I am sitting home stitching on a model piece with candles lit around the house and watching Anne Of Green Gables. I also have The Continuing Story and The Sequel. The library had these and always wanted to watch them. They also have all of the Road To Avonlea which I may take out next time. It is that time of year when I am home alot and like to watch TV or listen to audiobooks while stitching so DS#2 just said he needs some books to read this week so I will head out here shortly before it does snow alot. I will see what they have for audiobooks :-)
Tonight is Bones and then Supernatural. I will stitch on the sports ornaments while watching them.
No reading at the moment as I don't have the time. But after this model piece is done I will read quite a bit again.

Been MIA again

Ok, I will try this again as it seems blogger is giving me trouble. I haven't been on the computer as I have had computer trouble and had to have my friend reformat it. I have still been sick as well but starting to feel a little better, as of last night. I had a nephew get in a car accident on Monday. He came home yesterday. he has a skull fracture which broke his eardrum and he will no longer be able to hear out of that ear. My dad is having anxiet attacks so my heart goes out to him.Still stitching on a model piece and stitching sports ornaments.Starting to read The Resort by Bentley Little.

been MIA

I know I haven't been on much as I have been sick and stitching on model pieces. I just finished one model piece for Twisted Oaks Designs. Now I am stitching for SzuLet Creations and have 2 months to finish it. Plus I am stitching sports ornaments for a shcool charity.
I want to say I am so sorry for Becky's loss on her pet. I know how much that dog meant to you and I know how hard it is.
I have been watching alot of TV and reading less.
I just finished reading Frankenstein by Dean Koontz and started Bitten by Kelley Armstrong.

Stitchers Bloggers question

When comparing large projects versus small projects, which do you get more excited about finishing?

I like to finish small projects to look like I am accomplishing something but when I finish a large project them I am ecstatic over the finish so I would say a large project is mor exciting to finish.

Been MIA

Have had to reschedule myself during the week as my housework wasn't getting done. Now I do that as soon as I get up in the morning and then I can do whatever I want the rest of the day. It is working great so far. Thanks to all my stitchingbrats and stitching_sisters through Yahoo.
Let's see since the last I posted I have bought a new camera. I still need to post pics with it. I also still need to post a pic of DS#1 when he was dressed in the demon costume. I am now working on 2 model pieces. One is almost done and the other one I have 2 months to finish. Plus I have to stitch up some sports ornaments for charity. They are quick and I can do one ina couple of hours so I will start them this weekend as well.
I also have gotten into Italian Charm bracelets, as some of the women in Myrtle Beach were wearing them. So I bought one bracelet and then yesterday bought 2 watches as they were on sale. I also love to make beaded scissor fobs so I had to buy some supplies for that and also some supplies to finish my wedding scrapbook album. Do you think I thought of it though while I was in Michaels LOL. Nope. so I still need to buy some wedding paper for that. I did get stickers though at Walmart. Well I have lots to do today. Grocery shopping and then stitch on the one model piece. I am doing some for Twisted Oaks Designs and she has Baltimore Quilt Squares for sale at LNS's and my name is ona couple of them as being the model stitcher, which is an awesome feeling :-)


Blogger Stitching Question of the week

If you have stitched for a while, can you usually pick out the DMC colors you need from memory when you go to your LNS? (For example, you know that 610 is a brown.)

Yes, I can if it is a color that I use alot of.

I know I am a day late but I thought I posted yesterday. it was also my DHs birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Scott, hope it was a great one.
My mom came over with her puppy and it was afraid of my dog LOL. I also received another model piece in the mail, from Twisted Oaks Designs. I have a bunch of sports ornaments to stitch up for my aunt. The money raised goes to a charity.I made 10 ornaments last year and they were sold in an hour so they would like more if possible. I said I will see what I can do :-)
So today I need to clean and stitch an ornament and then stitch on the model piece.
