New York Here I Come!

Our high school band is taking our bi-annual trip in 2 weeks. We are gonna go to New York. I am excited, but alittle nervous because I will have to make sure my little group of teens stay together! Are you kidding? These kids are gonna run me over. Must be strong! Jacob has this way about him that I always seem to let him do whatever he wants. He is very talented! Made symphonic band his first year, competition band, he lettered this year. Very bright boy, but lord the child drives his moma to ruins sometimes. I know we have 3 years until college, but he wants things to be perfect all the time. Grades are his top goal right now. He wants a scholarship to a top college. He wants to be a scientist!
Gotta stitch on my exchanges tonight!

Poor Jay Bug!

Well, Dr. Haddad said Jason's wisdom teeth need to come out asap! Apparently the back left lower one has made the gum surrounding the tooth infected! Poor baby! I feel terrible, I told him over the weekend that since the tooth has already busted through, he probably won't need to have them removed. I was wrong! In 2 weeks he will have them removed. He needs to be on antibiotic's for a week before they will do anything.
I did stitch on the little hedgehog freebie at the oral surgeon's office today. almost finished with him, will post him as soon as I finish him. Boys are at scouts, so I'm gonna try to get in a little more quiet time for stitching!

Magnet and Santa SAL Pics

Thank you to Connie for my magnet. I got it in the mail yesterday. I love teacups. Also, I have completed my 2nd PS Santa. I'm ahead of schedule on my Santas. Yeehaw! Think I'll start my hedgehog freebie pattern from Workbasket, then later today I'll start my DT game board sampler. got my linen last night, floss is ready, just need to measure and find the center and get started!

I have a small headache again, need to get my eyes checked I guess, it's been 4 years since I changed my eyeglasses. Tomorrow will be busy, Jason has an appointment with the oral surgeon. Wisdom teeth time. What a way to spend spring break. Hope for good news for him.

Until later,

Weekend finally here!

Weekend's here. thank goodness. Will try to get in some stitching on Sunday. Saturday filled with chores and grocery shopping. I did stop by Hobby Lobby and picked up some linen for my new Drawn Thread Game Board Sampler. I picked out 28 count, they have really decreased the amount of linen that they normally carry. It's a shame too, I hate to drive an hour to my nearest LNS. I'm gonna stitch the freebie from Workbasket. It's a hedgehog. Really cute. Will post my completed PS Santa on Sunday. Our other computer is overworked, so I shut it down, much to the sorrow of 3 teenagers. World of Warcraft give me a break! Please!

Here are my nieces!

I will be babysitting in April for my little sweetpeas! My sister is taking her hubby to Vegas! Yea baby! I hope they have fun! I need to save all my energy up for that weekend. I'm gonna be soooo tired! Hahaha
I'm their favorite aunt!

Santa SAL Update

Here is a picture of my 2nd Santa! Coming along nicely. Goal is to have him completed by the weeks end. Got a email from my exchange partner Connie, she received her bunny magnet. Glad she liked him.

Woke up this morning with a sore throat and congested head. Bummer. I almost called in sick today, but I toughed it out. Need to save my sick days for the New York trip in March with the Band. My son Jacob is excited about the upcoming trip. 18 hours on a charter bus with 55 students! Am I insane or what? Stitching time hopefully for me! Well a shower is calling my poor ole stuffed up head! thank goodness the boys scoutmaster called off their swimming merit badge class tonight! Thank you Gerald! I really didn't want to get out in the rain.

Until later,



I got my patterns in the mail! Yea! Now to get me some linen for DT Game Board Sampler!

Plus, need to start Winter Winds by PS.

Valentine's Goodies from my hubby!

Just wanted to show what my husband gave me. The small flower bouquet was won in raffle at the school band's Taste of Dacula. I couldn't believe he won them. Then he went out and got me more flowers! Plus gobs of candy. I guess he likes me extra curvy! hahaha. What a wonderful man! I love you Johnny!

Exchange mailed today!

I have stitched as fast as the wind! I finished my magnet exchange and assembled it last night. I went to the post office today and mailed my package to Connie in New York. I hope she likes what I stitched for her. Since I know that nobody really knows I have a blog I'll go ahead and post the picture. I promised some friends I'd post the picture today.

I am such a wuss! It is so cold to me. It is 38 degrees! I know, I know that that is not cold to the ones up north, but I would probably freeze if I lived up north. I got to get the boys to bring in more firewood. I'm gonna start me a fire here shortly!
Still waiting for my Drawn Thread pattern to arrive, I was hoping it would come today! No such luck.
Till tomorrow! I have a 3 day weekend! Yes!

Crunch time for stitching!

I am in a tizzy, group email reminded exchange partners that their magnets had to be received by the 16th. Yikes. I checked my email and I know it says till the end of the month. I might need to email the group leader her email that she originally sent me. I have been stitching like mad to finish it. I will have it done tomorrow, then need to assemble the magnet. I just don't want my exchange partner to be upset when she doesn't get it by Friday. She might get it by Monday at the earliest. Wish me luck putting the magnet together. At least I have an early release day at school tomorrow, extra stitching time! Yea!
Daisy my kitty is recovering once again from the vets office visit. she hates travelling. Meds will make her better! I love my kitty :)
Will post tomorrow!

Weekend almost over!

It's Sunday night and gosh if the time hasn't flown by. I did manage to stitch on my 2nd Santa SAL. Plus worked on my exchange, can't show that one yet. I spent most of my day curled up on my bed with my kitty and my cross stitch. Pretty good day for me. This is the beginning of Santa No.2. I also received my one package from Stitching Bits and Bobs! Very speedy!

Can't wait to stitch them both.

The week's finally over!

What a week it has been. I am so tired, I can't even think straight. Schools need to let up on our kids. Between Jason and Jacob, I've been up at school everyday with some practice or project.
Now, down to stitching news. I've ordered some Dragon floss and a couple of kits, package has been shipped, now just waiting for the mail or ups to deliver.
I've started a new Santa on Wednesday. Will post a picture this weekend. Working on my exchange. I'd say about 75% finished with the stitching.
I hate to say this, but this ole bird's tuckered out. I'm heading for bed. Wrestling tournament tomorrow for one son, scout merit badge workshop for the other son. Donna's taxi cab service to the rescue!
Hope everyone has a peaceful night!

Ordered Game Board Sampler!

Ordered a couple patterns today from the Silver Needle! Drawn Thread pattern and a few Prairie Schooler Designs. Can't wait till they come! I was able to finish my Santa last night at Jason's wrestling meet. Last meet of the year. I know he is ready for that, so am I. Practice everyday is tough.
Went to the vet to pick up my baby Daisy, she was getting spayed. She is so pitiful, she is resting on my shawl on my bed. I hope that she feels better soon. She is such a sweet little kitty. My baby.
Well, cross stitch is calling me, both boys are out and about, so time for me.

Hello Renee!

So glad you dropped by! I love the Amish Bread recipe! I am gonna have to try this!
The little knitted chicks are adorable. I have only just learned how to knit. I have made 3 scarfs for my family. Very interesting reading on the history. Will talk later!
Have a wonderful day. I did try to post you a comment, but really couldn't find the post button. I will search again later!

Yahoo! My floss exchange arrived for me!

Thank you Linda! Very pretty colors! I have just the project in mind for them. Hope you have gotten your floss in the mail.
No snow day for us, my kids and I were hoping that we would get a snow day today. But NO, not our county. So we had to go to school today, so many little ones out today though. We haven't had a snow day in years! Come on mother nature, give us a snow day! :)
Waiting on Jason's call to go pick him up from wrestling practice. We have a tournament tomorrow night. It will be a long night for us. 5 minutes of excitement while your son wrestles, then 2 to 3 hours of waiting till all the team wrestles. Good time for stitching!
Time to go get Jason!
Until later!
