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"
32 ct dirty linen
NN Razzle Dazzle Red
1/5/11 - 4/26/11

Then I pulled out a Up For a Challenge piece - UFO, and finished it
Stitchy Kitty Heart Paw
28 ct cashel millenium blue
dmc, kreinik
5/21/10 - 4/28/11

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.

I had heard Tron was good but only from men!

Great progress on your projects. The Halloween Streamer is coming out really well.

Heart Paw is so cute! You've made great progress on Halloween Streamer, and Symbolic X is pretty - really different. Great job!

Great progress on your stitching!! I wish I could accomplish some finishes real soon! I seem to be slacking lately can't get in the stitching mood or if I do get in the mood its late at night and I don't have a lot of time to stitch!

Cute finishes. Love all of them. Hopefully the weather will calm down soon

You've been a busy girl :0)
I love the Symbolic X ornie. Its funny how you can look through a magazine a hundred times and an ornament doesn't catch your eye until you see someone else stitch it.
