O Christmas Tree is finished

Tonight I sat and stitched on O Christmas Tree by Angel Stitching, from the 2005 JCS issue. I don't know how I am going to finish it off.
While stitching I watched:
General Hospital
Bart Got a Room

JCS 2005 O Christmas Tree - Angel Stitchin
32 ct Silkweavers, DMC, GAST, WDWs
This morning I went out to start up my car. Got out of the car and fell forwards into the ice. Went to work. Had a twinge in the back and was on my feet most of the day. Got home and relaxed and all of a sudden my knee hurts. Scott says put the heating pad on it. So I did for a couple of hours, while stitching. WRONG! you are supposed to put ice on it for 48 hours. So now am doing that.

Nice Christmas

Christmas Eve I had cooked a beef lentil soup and took it to my in laws. They hadn't had a great year health wise and my SILs do everything for them so I gave them a break. Plus Christmas was at my house, on Christmas day, with my parent's and sister. The inlaws were all getting together on Christmas so we couldn't be with them. This way Scott could spend time with them on Christmas Eve. After that Scott, Justin, Dylan and I went to a local road, to see the Christmas lights. Came home to cheese, crackers and pepperoni.

Christmas morning we all got up and we opened our stockings. Then we ate breakfast before opening the gifts. Was a tradition for me growing up and I have continued it.

Scott got me 4 large jar candles from Yankee candle, 2 scents from Bath & Body works of body gel, lotion and spray. A Trans Siberian Orchestra CD. Justin got me a really nice purse(I am very picky and he did a great job picking one out.) He also got me a iHome for my ipod, a Starbucks plastic cup and a cute Christmas teddy bear. Dylan didn't have money so he is going to do me a favor :-) My sister bought me Satsimu from The Body Shop and my parents gave me a gift card for CJ Banks. My manager at work gave me a cute little plastic bath tub filled with bath items.

Sunday I went to CJ Banks and spent my GC. They had great sales going on. Oh and my boss gave us all Visa cards. So I plan on shopping at a Cross Stitch store that is 2 hours away. I have never been there but heard that it is huge and they have everything.

I have stitched a little bit on O Christmas Tree by Angel Stitching. I am hoping to finish it this week. Tonight I watched: Body of Lies and it was ok.
I am getting ready for the Crazy January Challenge and the Up For a Challenge.

We weren't busy at work today.
Anyone else on Facebook having troubles with it. I have lists for friends. Cross Stitch friends, book friends, school friends, family. None of the lists show anymore so I can't get into seeing what everyone has been posting. This has been like this for 2 days now.

Today was crazy busy at work so tomorrow will probably be dead lol.
I have been doing laundry tonight and then Justin and I watched General Hospital episodes: 12/15* 12/16* 12/17* 12/20

I kept falling asleep while stitching this.

A WIP and a finish

I had a hair appointment today and also got my eyebrows done. I was scaring people thinking I had a Caterpillar on my forehead.
Came home and stitched for quite a bit on Happy Halloween by RoseMary Peddie

I watched a couple of Christmas shows like Rudolph's Shiny New Year and Twas The Night Before Christmas. Then I watched 2 movies. Home By Christmas - Lifetime movie. The Time Traveler's Wife-awesome!!

I finished up the Tinkerbell bookmark as well.
 Dylan also was home for the weekend. And brought a friend from school, who is from New Jersey. They seemed to have a great time. I haven't cooked big meals in a long time. Usually it is just Justin and I that eat here. Scott always orders out or we go somewheres to eat, on the weekends. Dylan has class on the 23rd and then has off til January 3. So he will be home the whole time.

Thank you all for the comments that you leave. They mean a lot to me.

Bookmark progress

I stitched a couple of hours on the bookmark. All I have left is the backstitching. Should be done tomorrow night.

I finally got to playing the DVD from Netflix. I have had it for a month. The movie was Toy Story 3. Ok I am sap when it comes to movies and this one made me cry. It was really good and sorry to see this series end.
Then I put it on Happy Days just for something to watch.
The snow is still falling. It cleared up for a while and the main roads were bare. Now it is nasty out again.
Time for me to go to bed. as my eyes are closing on me. Night all.

Thanks for all the comments that you are posting. They mean so much to me.

Looks like Christmas!

It hasn't stopped snowing all day and still have an advisory til tomorrow sometime. The tree is all decorated and looks really nice. This year I bought clear lights and a new fiber optic angel tree topper. She is so pretty. Justin helped me decorate while listening to a Martina McBride Christmas CD and the Charlie Brown CD. Then I watched 2 movies. Farewell Mr. Kringle and the A Dog Named Christmas, which is a Hallmark movie and have a box of kleenex ready.
Tomorrow I will put up the lights in the bay window and out up all the window clings. Maybe get the green garland hung up as well.
I also have been stitching on Tinkerbell Bookmark.  My manager is having me stitch this for her daughter. It should be done tomorrow night.

Thank you to everyone that have commented on my blog. I appreciate you all :-)

Changes to my blog

I changed the title of my blog. Purple is my favorite color and my son said that purple is a color for royalty so hence my new name. I do need to ask my readers/followers for help. I see that others have tabs at the top of their blog. I would love to do that but have no idea how. That way I can have one for the 2011 Crazy January Challenge and another one for the Other challenge that I am going to do. Please help me.
