an Olympics new start

The other day I was given a gift of a new HAED chart. It is Faces of Faery 66
So after a lot of consideration, I decided to start a new piece and stitch on it through all of the Olympics. I don't ever watch Summer Olympics, I LOVE Winter Olympics. But this year I decided to and it was another first of ever watching the Opening Ceremonies and they were awesome! I was in awe of the whole thing. I have watched the US get a lot of medals, today.So here is where I am at tonight with this piece.

There are large blocks of color so I am hoping to have more progress reports this week.

I have also decided to try a rotation after the Olympics are over. I have it written down and can't wait. Maybe have more finishes done this way and will be able to fit in smalls.

Thanks for visiting and for the comments.

Yes, it was a weekend of stitching for the IHSW. I stitched on Rocky Mountain Christmas. I do have the top half done and this weekend I put in about 700 stitches. I am not showing the whole thing til I get a whole page done. This is the section I worked on.
I started this January 2001 as a SAL and my goal is to finish this by Thanksgiving.

I read a little bit today of The Divide by Nicholas Evans.

I also watched 3 episodes of Live with Kelly and 3 episodes of General Hospital. Then I watched Pixars Cars 2 and tonight's episode of True Blood, which was really gory tonight.

It was another warm and humid day today. The a/c was on for most of the day and will have it on while sleeping.

Thanks for visiting and all the comments. I appreciate them.


Here is my ort glass for this month. I know I am a couple of days late, for the TUSAL. All the orts are from HAED SK Sunny. The red plastic threads sticking up are from the stitching guides.
 This weekend is also IHSW - International Stitching Weekend. I have been stitching on Rocky Mountain Christmas and will post a progress tonight.

25 ct eveanweve

I had Justin draw what my next UFO was to finish and the winner is.......
Rocky Mountain Christmas - Marty Bell

I don't know what I am going to do with Sunny. Probably get her framed and hang her in my family room. Rocky Mountain Christmas was started as a SAL in January of 2001 and is my oldest UFO. This is for me as I love it. Just hate confetti stitching.

I listened to quite a bit of Knock Out by Catherin Coulter and am halfway through it.

Well now you will have to keep your eyes open on my RMC progress.

Oh so close

I didn't stitch last week because of the heat but I did stitch yesterday and then all day today. Only a little bit more to go on HAED SK Sunny.

Last week I finished reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy. I loved them. I also read Kindred by Octavia E. Butler and I highly recommend that book. Right now I am reading Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult.

DS#1 had totaled his car on July 3. This past week the insurance company agreed it was totaled so they gave him enough to pay off the car and enough for a down payment on a new car. He bought a 2010 green Chevy Cobalt, 5 speed. Really nice car. Still learning how to drive it.
He wasn't hurt in the accident. The car in front of him slammed on their brakes to avoid deer and he slowed down but didn't stop fast enough and hit her. She just had a little paint scraped off her car. It was a 2002 Ford Taurus.

Scott and I will be celebrating our 24th wedding Anniversary on July 16. So yesterday i bought him an outfit. He doesn't like to wear shorts but this summer has been unbearably hot so I bought him cargo shorts, a polo shirt and croc sandals. So he wore it while he took me out for dinner at The Original Crab Shack. Oh sooo good.

Well that's it for now. I will post again when I finish Sunny :-)

July Wipocalypse

How did I miss this the other day? I know it has been a hot and busy week. Anyways since last month's all I have been stitching on is HAED SK Sunny. Same picture as the last post. I am hoping to really get a lot accomplished on her this week. Go check out July's Wipocalypse on Measi's Musings.

Today I also set up my jewlery supplies and made a lot. I will post pics this week.

I also finished Fifty Shades of Gret and Fifty Shades Darker. I am now reading Fifty Shades Freed. The author is E L James.

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a great 4th. I took pics of all my jewelry and made a page on my blog. Go check it out. Then I sat and stitched all day. It was another very hot and humid day so I enjoyed the a/c. Watched episodes of TV shows on my DVR.
So here is how much I got done on HAED SK Sunny

Last night Justin (DS#1) was in a car accident. The car in front of him had slammed on her brakes as a deer ran out in front of her. Justin slammed on his brakes but still hit her. He is ok, no one was hurt but his car was totaled. So now he is driving mine til he can get something else. For some reason the cop forgot to give Justin his license back. The cop wasn't working today so they have to get that back, tomorrow. Justin did get a ticket for driving to close to the vehicle in front of him. Thank god that no one was hurt.
