Rocky Mountain Christmas

I pulled this out on Friday and stitched on it every day but Sunday. This was started January 1, 2001 as part of a SAL with the Stitching Sisters Yahoo group. I haven't worked on it in a few years. I hated all the confetti stitching but since stitching on HAEDs I appreciate this piece more and will stitch it in columns, like I do the HAEDs.I plan on stitching on it 1 week a month and am hoping to finish it this year. Sorry for the dark picture. It is stitched on 28 ct blue, which is lighter than shown here.


Well DHs truck went into the shop, Thursday, for the part that was needed. They called late this afternoon, to say it was done. He is thrilled to be able to get his truck back.

Dylan came home this weekend and Justin moved out. No more kids living at home. With Scott working 3rd shift it is very quiet in this house.

I went grocery shopping with Dylan, before he went back to PA. Since I eat alone all week I bought Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine, fresh veggies and fruits, chicken and fish. I think this will be easier to keep on track of my weight watchers.

While stitching tonight I watched the Westminster Dog Show. Is anyone else watching this? It will finish up tomorrow night , so I will be curled up on the couch stitching while watching it.

What a great piece. I dvr'd the dog show, Our deaf cat Frasier loves to watch tv and if there are animals on he goes wild.

I have this one in my someday stack, so I was really interested in your piece. It is looking really great!!

I imagine it is quite a change for you to be there by yourself in the evenings. Sometimes I wish I had my evenings to myself, but mostly I like being around Lisa and Lily during the week and Bill on the weekend.
