Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all, hope everyone has a safe and blessed new years! I plan on staying in and trying      not to sleep then new year in lol, that is my usual way of bringing in the new year.
As far as new year resolutions go I generally don't make any. I feel like I set myself up for disappointment and failure. As far as my stitching, I plan to just stitch for fun, no pressure, no deadlines, no beating myself up for all my wip's that are languishing away begging for my attention! I will just have fun with it, after all it's a hobby that is supposed to be relaxing, not like a job!

almost Christmas

Merry Christmas, hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday filled with love, family and good food! lol

My Christmas is very small this year but that is alright, my munchkin is having a good Christmas and that's pretty much all that matters to me at this moment. We are supposed to be getting a winter storm Christmas day, oh joy. Sleet and snow, possibly a blizzard. Not my favorite kind of weather so i will hibernating on the couch with my stitching or crochet, ha

As for me I have been stitching again, after my bout with a stomach virus I am ready for some serious stitching! My energy level is back and my startitis is flaring up! I started a new wip, a very pretty design called black-eyed susans by Paula Vaughan. My next new start will be the HAED bb sal, starting in early January, am looking forward to this one. Gonna do my best to keep up with it this year and actually finish, wish me luck lol

long week of blah

This has been the longest week of blah, I haven't felt good all week with an upset stomach so no stitching for me. Just went to work and came home and hibernated on the couch, ughhh. I might be whining a bit I know but I am having stitching withdrawals and its hard to stitch when you are spending most of your time horizontal lol

Woodland Guardian

I have finished my first page on Anne Stoke's Woodland Guardian by haed! I'm excited and a bit frustrated as I can't post a progress pic, I need new batteries. I think maybe it's time for a new camera as this one eats batteries quite often, they don't last but through a few pics then it shuts off saying replace batteries :(  Anyways I'll post a pic of what it will look like when finished~

Close call





So I was enjoying a quiet afternoon of  stitching on my day off when I heard a loud crash outside, when I peeked out to see what had happened this is what I saw, a huge tree has fallen across my driveway almost squishing my jeep in the process!! Thankfully it missed it, only by a few inches but hey, a miss is a miss! lol guess I need to find someone with a chainsaw to come cut it up, free firewood anyone? :0)
