3 columns done

I put in 3000 stitches on HAED Treasure Dragon Stocking and tonight it is put away for a few months.

Tomorrow, well maybe tonight I will pull out a Halloween UFO piece. While stitching on it tomorrow night I will watch Halloween specials. Hoping to finish 1.

Is everyone getting ready for the Super Bowl? I don't really care which team wins but I always go for the underdog. I can't wait for the commercials lol. I did see 2 already. I saw the new Budweiser and John Stamos new yogurt one.

This week I listened to Zoo by James Patterson and it was really good. Tonight I watched a Pixar movie called Brave and that was cute. Also tonight I watched Vampire Diaries.

Good night,

A new start and the stocking

Yesterday was the 25th so I have decided this year that the 25th of each month I will stitch on a Christmas piece and watch Christmas shows or listen to Christmas music to keep the spirit alive. I will be skipping February though, as I will be out of town
Homespun Elegance 2013 Snowman ornament
28 ct Picture This Plus Lugana - Legacy

I have also been stitching quite a bit on HAED Treasure Dragon Stocking.

I finished listening to an audiobook.
Kill Me If You Can - James Patterson. I love his books.

I also watched a couple of movies:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - loved it
If Only - Tearjerker
Beneath The Darkness - thriller- pretty good
Remember Sunday - Hallmark movie - awesome
The Sweetest Thing - funny

I plan on stitching more of the stocking this week.
Since I love Halloween and I have quite a few pieces started, I will stitch on one the last day of every month and watch Halloween specials. Except for February, as I will be out of town.
Then on February 1st I am going to start L&L Fairy Grandmother. I am doing this as a SAL with a few friends. I will stitch on her throughout all of February.

I can't wait for the winter olympics and printed up the schedule. I will miss the last 3 days so will have to DVR a couple of things Anyone else already to sit and stitch while watching them?

2 weeks behind

I forgot to post last Sunday. So since January 5th I stitched this much on HAED Treasure Dragon Stocking. I didn't stitch since last Sunday because I got engrossed in reading a couple of books.

So since my last post I read/listened to:
9th Judgement - James Patterson
Changing Habits - Debbie Macomber
Sealed Justice - K.R. Whitaker - only for ereaders - I highly recommend this series
Traitor's Revenge - Book 2  - K. R. Whitaker- Had gotten so engrossed that I couldn't believe I had finished reading it.

Movies watched:
The Sound Of Music - original movie - first time seeing it and loved it
Despicable Me 2 - cute
Dance of the Dead - ok
Keeping Up With the Randalls
V For Vendetta - loved it
Alvin & The Chipmunks : Chip-Wrecked
Arbitrage - good
Airborne - ok
American Reunion - funny if you like the American Pie movies

Tonight is the season finale of Betrayal. I will also be watching Revenge. Getting bored with it again.

See you next week!

New Year, New Start

I put in over 400 stitches on HAED Treasure Dragon stocking. This is for Justin.

While stitching I have been watching movies and listening to audiobooks.

Movies were on the DVR or from Netfix:
Last of the Dogmen - good
House of Secrets - good
Profile For Murder
A Mother's Rage
The Nearlyweds
An American Haunting
Take the Lead - Loved it

I finished listening to 8th Confession by James Patterson and started 9th Judgement. This is from his Women's Murder Club series. I am still reading Changing Habits by Debbie Macomber.

Also tonight started the new shows back from hiatus. I watched Revenge and Betrayal. Both were good.

Well seems like we are in for another major storm and high winds and wind chills. We could see up to 3 feet of snow, with wind gusts up to 60 mph and wind chill at -30 for a high.
