Floss Exchange Mailed!

Mailed my floss exchange today. Hopefully Linda will receive it in a couple of days. Hope she likes the spring colors I chose for her. It will be a night in front of the fire with my stitching. My son Jason has a wrestling meet at another school so I'll be up late waiting on the bus to return with my son. This weekend is another tournament that is not too far for us to drive to, we will be there for that meet.
Until later,

Thank you!

Thank you to Susan and Rachel for replying and answering my questions. I am gonna go shopping this weekend to try and find those patterns!
My weekend didn't have as much stitching in it as I would have liked. A stupid migraine attacked my head! Better today! Thank goodness.
I am hoping to get pictures posted this week. When my son Jacob has a little extra time he has promised me to show me how to upload pictures!
I want to have a warm and inviting blog for my friends to see!
Until then,

Jason doing better, back still bothers him, but getting better. Work was rough today, 3 ladies out, makes the workload harder for the few remaining, but 2:15 finally got here!
Working on my exchange, have replied to a Pay It Forward through another blogging friend from one of my groups. I am so excited to participate. hoping to hear that I was the first five.
Mailing my floss exchange on Saturday!
Until later,

Working on a magnet exchange!

Stitching as fast as I can, trying to at least get part of the bunny ears done. Had to pick up Jason from school, hurt his back during wrestling practice. Hope he can get back to school tomorrow.
My threads came in the mail, now I need to package them and get them sent to my floss exchange partner. Nice threads. Hope she likes them.
Hoping tomorrow will be less hectic for me.
Until then!

Weekend stitching here I come!

Friday is finally here! I can relax, watch football and cross stitch all weekend. Already done my shopping, just need to cook some goodies for the weekend for the boys.
Started another Santa. Plus a linen sachet bag. Need to pick up some Ole Willow linen floss for an exchange I am signed up for. Need to get it in the mail next week if possible. Have 3 weeks deadline for exchange.
Until next time!

What a day!

Back from the heart docs, they have me hooked up with a temporary heart monitor, most uncomfortable to wear. Only have to wear it till tomorrow. I stopped by Hobby Lobby, I picked up a couple of cross stitch patterns from Prairie Schooler, very happy about the one pattern I found. Picked up a kit for a RAK for my cross stitch group member. Well, need to get stitching.
Tomorrow is work!



Have been very busy, plus been under the weather. Have had heart flutters that the drs. are checking out. See the heart doc today. Still stitching as usual. Have finished hat, birds, hearts and started on the vest for Tiffany's sampler. Plus I finished a pin for momma and I started a Santa from Prairie Schooler. I'm shooting for a Santa a month. Today is a holiday, no school so yeehaw for me. I don't have to go to work either.
Both my boys are organizing their bedrooms. So glad for that. I hate it when their rooms look like a pigsty. Jason is at wrestling practice, he won a match the other night.
Joined acouple stitching groups. Hope I find a penpal or new friend.
Well, gotta run put a shelf unit together for Jacob.

Hi All!

Just thought I'd update my blog. started my niece's wedding sampler last night, I've got to keep it a secret from her. Will be hard as she lives next door to us. Jason has a wrestling match tonight and a tournament this weekend. Hope he does well, it is so hard when he gets pinned. He a tough guy though. He didn't win his last match so hopefully he will not be discouraged at this match. My son will help me load photos this weekend.
Still haven't found any online stitching groups yet. I'll keep trying. I think I'll start stitching since nothing pressing to do is calling me.

What to do?

New year, what should I start? My niece is planning a wedding for the fall of 2007, I will start her cross stitch soon. It is a design from Brooke's Books Publishing. I just love her designs. School will be back in progress on Wednesday. Boo hoo, I have to go back to work. Only have to work 8 days then we will have a 3 day weekend. Yahoo! I love having days off to stitch.
My kitten Daisy is wanting some attention from me, so I guess I'll tend to her. Will continue my journal later.

Looking for Cross stitch pals!

Looking for a new friend? I'm new to blogging and would love to have a new friend who cross stitches. My New Year's resolution is to try and find a pen pal who likes to cross stitch and exchange ideas with.
If this is you, let's start stitching! I enjoy Just Nan, Lizzie Kate, Bent Creek, plus many more! I love mini projects!
