I alos pulled out Fishing Santa Stocking, to stitch on while watching TV.
Kyle XY - 8/20 8/27 9/3
Desperate Housewives 11/25
TV tonight was Shrek The Halls Christmas special. Very cute!
At work we are getting ready for the big move into the new building. The supervisor and other woman that I work with, packed and took some things over today. I helped as well. I can't wait for the new move. We are in a really old building that is freezing and we have to share the bathroom which is not that great and several times my supervisor has walked in on a guy because he doesn't close the door. He must think he is home. the new building is just for our business so there is just the 3 of us there. Will be so nice. So when we are done working tomorrow then we have to help move. We are hoping that there will be enough guys to move the big things as we can't do that.
Most of us stitchers joke about having reached SABLE (stash acquired beyond life expectancy), but have you thought about what you’d like done with your stash after your death? Do you want it to reach other stitchers who will love it, too? Would your family know what to do with it or recognize its value?
How well organized is your stash –would someone be able to come in and put together a sale easily, or would it require lots of organizing work ahead of time? What would you like to see done with the funds collected from such a sale, i.e., should funds go to your family, to a charity or charities of your choice, to a charity or charities of your family’s choice, etc.?
Are there certain items in your stash which are rare and highly desired by stitchers that might make a much larger amount of money if sold on eBay? Have you done anything to designate which items these more valuable ones are to guide your family in how to handle them? Who would you tell your family should handle such a sale so that they don’t have to do it themselves? Have you done anything to make these thoughts known to others, either through discussions or through a codicil to your will?
Have you ever attended a similar sale of a passed stitcher’s stash? How did it make you feel? Did it encourage you to make any changes in your stitching lifestyle?
I have actually discussed this with my family and they know that they would just have to make a couple of emails to friends and any of my cross stitch online friends can come and have whatever they want. Mine is actually pretty well organized.

I finished MH Bee Skep and started JCS 2003 Homespun Elegance Ltd. , Starry Santa. Since I stitch a JCS ornament on the 25th of each month, I started a day early.

I did start out to stitch on the stocking but then remembered it is the weekend and I stitch on my little kits.

He is out hunting again today but can only get does now. So another stitching day today :-) Wish I could show pics but still not connected online with my computer. I will show all the finishes and the stocking when I am back on.

Thursday- got up and took my shower. As soon as I stepped out and grabbed a towel, the power went out. I was thankful that I still didn't have shampoo in my hair but how was I supposed to blow dry and make it look nice for Thanksgiving day. Power was back on in 30 min. So I missed about 45 minutes of the Macy's Parade. Sat down and stitched while watching the parade and then the dog show. Made the tossed salad after that. Dylan came home from work so we took off for my parent's house. Justin was at his friend's house for a few days so he met us there. Had a nice Thanksgiving with my parents , my sis and bil. My dad seemed to be doing a little better while we were there.
Friday- Dylan wanted me to take him and a friend to the mall so after I worked out at Curves, we headed for the mall. Was packed and I did end up with a pretty decent parking spot. He bought Scott's Christmas gift, bought me lunch and the way we were since he had to be at work by 2. Scott was out hunting and Justin had to work 7am-10am and then back to work again from 4pm-7pm. Scott came home and then we went to his parent's for a family get together. In the afternoon I did get a lot of stitching time in on the stocking while watching the DVR shows:
Ghost Whisperer - 11/9
Women's Murder Club - 11/9
Desperate Housewives 11/11
Today is lazy day. Got up and sorted through the laundry for washing. Washed my face with noxzema and decided no makeup today and wearing lazy clothes, t shirt with sweatpants LOL. I am a sight let me say. Scott and Dylan went hunting for the day and Justin had to work at the station 7am-2:30. I washed dishes and vacuumed and have laundry going all day. After checking everything online I will then sit and stitch on stocking and watch DVR shows, almost caught up. I just remembered I have a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy on the VCR as well LOL.
My computer still isnt online so still using Dylan's laptop, and wait til I can post a pic of the progress on the stocking, I have gotten a lot accomplished on it.

Saturday I stitched and finished MH Violet Angel and watched Underworld and Underworld:Evolution.
Had a stitch in yesterday with KarenNY and stitched on MH Bee Shep. After she left I stitched some more and then watched Eragon on HBO. What an awesome movie. I have the book but haven't read it and now I know it will get read sometime as the books are always better.
I stitched alot today on Fishing Santa Stocking while watching DVR: Friday's General Hospital, todays episode and SMallville 11/8 and Supernatural 11/8.
Then I read The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers by Lilian Jackson Braun. Anyone that has read her books and loved them will be very disappointed in this book.

I finished listening to Tara Road by Maeve Binchy and downloaded Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy. I will listen to that at work next. I have tons of books in my bookcase and listening to alot of them to free up my bookcase will be great. I am reading A Peach of a Murder by Livia J. Washburn.
I didn't get any cross stitching in today but I am going to organize my stash better. I really need to do that and I would like to change scissors and fobs every month as well as getting more of the pretty mesh bags with fabric. I have 3 so far and would like 9 more so I can change them every month. Yes, I am probably a freak LOL.
I didn't watch any TV today either but I did DVR Smallville and Supernatural and taped Grey's Anatomy.
