Productive week

I have wanted to post all week but everytime I came on here the internet would go out. The other night I had typed everything in and as I hit publish post the internet went out :-( . We have had storms all week. Looks like it will be a nice weekend though.
I finished a Crazy January Challenge
JCS 2002 ornament issue - The Sampler House- Symbolic "X"

Then I pulled out a Up For a Challenge piece - UFO, and finished it

28 ct cashel millenium blue

So then I decided to pull out Little Rivers Design Halloween Streamer and TRY to make this a finish for the month. I don't think it will happen but I will come close.
Little River Designs - Halloween Streamer
28 ct tea Monaco

I finished the audiobook Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson and am now listening to I, Alex Cross.
I also am trying to watch a lot of movies:
Tron-Legacy (very good)
Burlesque - awesome
The Switch - funny
Eclipse - good
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part I - very good

I am hoping to stitch on Halloween Streamer all day and watch Elizabeth Taylor movies that I DVRd  a couple of weeks ago.

Thank you for the comments and reading my blogs.

a little of this and that

I haven't been posting like I want to.
Last weekend I went, with Dylan's girlfriend,  and visited Dylan in PA. He took me to Philly for a real Philly Cheesesteak. It was good and I fell in love with Philly. The buildings were gorgeous and drove by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is huge!! I want to visit it next time and also want to go to the zoo. He took us to The King of Prussia Mall, which is huge and we only walked through a small part of it. I took my stitching with me and did get some stitching time in.
This past week I put in more stitches on HAED QS Fragile Heart
Dylan is home for 3 weeks and will be going with me to work as we need help and he needs money. Today we went grocery shopping, came home and cleaned a little. I finally got to stitch for about 2 hours tonight. I watched the movie Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell, Funny movie. Then watched Desperate Housewives. I stitched on Halloween Streamer by Little River Designs.
Thank you for visiting and leaving comments. I appreciate them.

HAED Fragile Heart

I ended up stitching on this for a few hours tonight. While watching Desperate Housewives, Live with Regis and Kelly, and General Hospital.
I also stitched on it last night while watching the movie Leap Year. Great movie!

Thanks for all the comments and please come back again :-)

movies, TV and stitching

Yesterday was my birthday. I got a card and money from my in laws. Lots of facebook comments and a few txt messages. As for DH, well still nothing by bedtime. My own mom didn't remember to call me.
I fixed Mexican lasagna for my inlaws and boy was that good. I made it mild so it wouldn't bother them and it seemed to be a hit. I stitched for an hour on HAED QS Fragile Heart so I didn't take a pic.
Today I caught up on some laundry and watched all last week's episodes of Live with Regis and Kelly. I sure will miss it when Regis leaves. I have been a huge fan of his show around the time Kathie Lee had joined. When I went back to the work force in 2007 I had missed it. So when news of Regis leaving had hit the news, then I started DVRing it. Friday's episode was their 10th anniversary and showed all kinds of past episodes. Some I remembered and a few I had missed. But it left me with bittersweet tears. I know Kelly is staying on but it won't be the same without Regis. No telling how I will be on the last day he will be on.
So while watching them I pulled out Halloween Streamer by Little River. I then sat in my comfy chair and watched 2 movies , which I highly recommend. The first one was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The next movie was The Book of Eli. Both great movies.
Here is my progress on Halloween Streamer. I am hoping to finish it this month.
This week I will be stitching on HAED QS Fragile Heart.
I forgot to mention. When DH came home from work at 3, this afternoon, he had a birthday card and shrimp for me. I told him thank you and I appreciated it but yesterday was my birthday. He apologized. He knew it was my birthday and even told me Happy Birthday. But he said he didn't know what to get me. Well gee a card on my actual Birthday would have been nice.

Thanks for all of the comments, loved them all.

Finished Poof Hat

Left work at noon since we weren't busy today. Took a 2 hour nap. Deleted a lot of friends off of Facebook. I am no longer playing games and I had at least 200 people on there for games. Got rid of them all. Felt good but sad to lose a couple of them.

Sat down and watched all of this week's General Hospital episodes.
Pulled out Poof Hat and finished it. I promised this chart to someone but can't remember who. Please leave me a comment of you still want it. I am not sure how I want to finish this. Either frame it or make a pillow. The spider is done all in beads.

Poof Hat - Ursula Michael
28 ct Monaco, DMC, MH beads
1/8/11 - 4/1/11
Then I pulled out HAED QS Fragile Heart  and put in a few stitches. I will also work on this Saturday.

Thanks for all the comments,
