lots of stitching

I pulled out Night Before Christmas and stitched some more on it. I also listened to Shadow Man by Cody McFayden. I really like this audiobook.
I pulled out TW The Storyteller as it was UFO night. I did quite a bit more on the border. I also watched Bones, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.

I didn't stitch at all on Friday. My sister invited me to her house for a sleepover. Just her and I. We had wine, sushi and watched movies. We watched Up ,which was cute. Then we watched The Women , which we enjoyed.

I stitched on my name tree by M Designs. DH and DS#2 were out hunting so it was a day of stitching and movies. I watched: WALL-E and The Dark Knight. Both of which I enjoyed.

Stitched a little

Tonight was UFO night and I put in some stitches of TW The Storyteller. I am to tired to take pics and upload so that will have to wait.

Tomorrow night I plan on going to my sister's new place. She invited me to spend the night and have a night of drinking wine, eating sushi and watching movies. I do plan on taking my stitching but she told me lots of luck with her 2 little kittens LOL.

sleepy tonight

last night I didn't post a progress pic because I was watching Eagle Eye and it is so full of adventure that I didn't hardly stitch.
Then tonight I sat down with my stitching again and my ipod. I was listening to Shadow Man by Cody McFayden (awesome book) and stitching on The Night Before Christmas but I kept nodding off. I don't want to miss anything on this audiobook. So all I managed to get done in 2 days is 2 little cherries and the top part of santa. So I may post a progress pic tomorrow. I am just to tired tonight and it is only 9 pm. Pretty sad for me.
Tomorrow I will be pulling out TW The Storyteller.

Good night all,

Mondays progress

I worked some more on Night Before Christmas. I am hoping to finish another page tonight.

Had a fight with DS#2, who is 17. He doesn't like living by our rules so he packed and left last night. He has spoken to me since and will be back today. Teenagers are so much fun lol.

name tree and Halloween Fairy

Yesterday was Saturdays SAT with the Stitching Sisters yahoo group and Only One ewe Yuku board. So I pulled out M Designs Name Tree (Shelleen) and got 1/4 of it finished. it is also a stitched incentive piece with the Only One ewe board. This pattern was given to me in 2005. It was in my registration package for the Pals Fall Fling.
Today I went to a stitch in at my friend Jill's house. I hadn't seen her in 2 years but her sister, Karen and I get together once in a while to stitch. So Karen met us there as well. I stitched on Nora Corbett's Halloween fairy. This should be finished this month.

Tonight I watched Desperate Housewives. Anyone else watch this?

Starting next Saturday is deer season with a gun and DH and DS#2 will be gone all day Saturday and Sunday so I have a lot of time to stitch. So my home is open next Saturday for any stitchers and it is pajama day so you can come in your pjs and stitch all day long or join me online.

Night Before Christmas

I was able to put together 4 ornaments. They are for exchanges and I still need to buy goodies to go with them. Since I have to go to the city Saturday morning then I will get the goodies and be able to mail on Monday. So now I can concentrate on my WIPs, which are now UFOs.

Tonight I pulled out The Night Before Christmas by Little Old Me Designs. I only have a couple of more pages to stitch of this. I am hoping to finish it this year. Now that I am back into a routine I am sure it can happen.

I watched all 3 episodes of this week's General Hospital and it was good.

Tomorrow will be UFO night for me. Since I watch TV from 8pm-11pm I thought that 3 hours would be great. I will be stitching on TW The Storyteller.

I have NOT forgotten about my blogiversary Giveaway. With being sick I had put it on the backburner. I will be writing the names down tonight and having one of the boys draw a name.

Busy Stitching

I finished one RR and have the backstitching left on the last RR. Then I will be putting together Christmas ornaments for exchanges. I am sooo excited that the RRs are done and exchanges for a couple of months. Now back into my rotation and showing pics again, woohoo!!!

I am also feeling so much better. I cough once in a while but no more coughing fits. Life is good :-)

Feeling Better and stitching away

I had the flu last week and missed 2 days of work. My manager even had it so we shut the lab down on Monday. I just have to get rid of this stupid cough.
Yesterday and today i stitched on 2 Rrs. One is done and almost done with the other one. I watched a lot of my DVrd TV shows and today was movie day.
I watched:
Watchmen - didn't like it
Duplicity - it was ok
X-Men Origins: Wolverine - liked it

Nothing else new here. Just slept a lot last week and went to bed around 9 every night. Getting back into my routine. Caught up with laundry.

Too many Christmas commercials on TV. I love Christmas but by the time Thanksgiving is here I end up being sick of Christmas. I turn into a scrooge by the time December 1 gets here and then don't even feel like decorating the house. I understand needing it in the Craft stores but we don't need it now in other stores. Does anyone else feel like this?
