This is Edgar's RR finished.

I've got Edgar's rr done. I'm putting it in the mail to Cheryl tomorrow. He has already sent me Lizzy's. So I will start that one next.

This week has been very busy for me, I will stay busy until the end of football season. We did win our football game on Friday, we had a competition on Saturday, we placed 1st! We got superior scores. Very proud of our band kids. they work so hard to win the trophies for their school! Go Dacula Falcons Marching Band! We have another competition on the 6th. It does make for long weekends for the parents who chaperone.

I'll be able to post a picture soon of my Halloween exchange. I've got two Christmas ornies to get done. One for Prairie Schooler group and one for SBEBB. I haven't made my mind up yet which on to do for either of them. I did buy some Christmas material from the quilt shop for the backs.

Hoping everyone has had a great week! Halloween is coming!

I got the next round from Edgar!

Hi Edgar! I got your package today! Wahoo! I can't make up my mind on which pattern from the Dear Diary series to stitch? All that's left on Edgar's piece is to stitch my name. Yeah! Finally! I've wasted time this past week. I should have been stitching!
We had a exhibition meet tonight. we got home around 11pm. Jacob was tuckered out, went straight to bed, I'm staying up until midnight to check my blog and to read emails. I'm gonna be tired tomorrow. We have an away game Friday and another competition on Saturday. Busy times for us. I guess my stone has decided to take a break, it's moved into a cozy spot, it hasn't hurt me for the past couple of days. Thank goodness.
Well, my limit is up, I promised to go to bed at midnight. It's 12 am now. Best get to bed.
I'll post my goodies tomorrow!

Just a quick note......

I have been so busy this week, I can't believe it's Friday already. Had my appointment with the kidney doctor, I have 3 stones, the doctor feels that I could pass these without having surgery. I'm glad about that, but not looking forward to the pain of passing the stones. I go back in 3 months to see if I've passed anything.
We had a football game tonight. We won, 21 to 14. We have a competition meet on Monday evening. I hate when they have something on a school night. Wish us a superior rating!
I am almost finished with Edgar's RR. I haven't been able to stitch as much as I'd like too this week. I've been helping my SIL get her house ready to sell. I'm gonna be depressed when I know the house sells and she won't be next door.
I'm gonna head off to bed, it's 11:40 pm and I'm tired! I'll post pictures tomorrow!

Flosses Came!

I got my flosses in the mail yesterday. So now I can finish Edgar's RR. I also ordered a couple of patterns from LHN's to use in Janice's RR when I get hers to work on. I ordered from Stitching Bits & Bobs, I think that maybe Mary Kathryn's is faster in sending stuff out though. So I'm gonna start ordering more thru her :)
I've given up on my local needleshop, I can't see how she stays in business. Remember that Liberty I was doing for the 4th? I needed some Kreinik threads plus I need scuppernog for my SB ornament, she still has yet to get those flosses in for me! I want to help keep her in business but this is ridiculous. 2 months of waiting for threads? I kinda wished we lived closer to my sister so I could shop at Abcdarius in Marietta. I love that shop, but having to drive more than an hour is the pits. So I don't get there often.
I have my partner for PS exchange! Hi Rosalie! I'll look forward to getting to know you!
The weather here in GA today is beautiful! FALL IS COMING! I love it! I put a sweater on! I'm so giddy I can't contain myself! hehehe
I'll post a picture of Edgar's RR tomorrow, I'm gonna stitch today and hope to make a dent in the remainder of his square.
Happy Sunday everyone!

PS: My niece finally got her proposal on Friday! Thank you Justin! I was gonna have to knock some sense into the boy soon! I've got to get back started on her wedding cross stitch now! Yea!

Wahoo! A Finish!

I finished stitching my Halloween exchange. Now I need to put it together. I am attempting my first tin! Thank goodness I have the one Vonna made for me to study by. I need to study on how it's put together before I mess it up.

Had my CT Scan today, now I'm back to more waiting. Find out Monday. I have the x-ray plus the CD of the scan, the scan is really cool to look at, I cheated and popped it in my computer to see what it looked like. So weird! I wished I had a bit of doctor in me to read it. I hate waiting.

My brother goes back to the surgeon tomorrow to see if his stone got blasted away. Hoping his did so he doesn't have to have another surgery. He's itching to get back to work. I'm like, stay home! hahaha

Jacob had to have a blood blister that went bad removed from his thumb. He was so brave, I held my baby's hand, but I think he just let me hold his hand to make me feel useful while the doctor was working on his thumb. He has one stitch. He was really intrigued by the whole ordeal. He had to call his girlfriend as soon as we got home to tell her all the gory details.

Has anyone seen the new Frappuccino pattern from LHN? OMGosh, I want it! I'm a Frappie kind of girl and I love the colors. Watch out Mary Kathryn, I'll be ordering at the end of the month!

Since I can't show my exchange, I'll show a picture of Daisy! My sweet heart kitty!

Night everyone!

ps: Daisy sleeps in the oddest ways!

Here's my Katie Girl!

This is my niece Katie! Her older sister Aaryn is getting married next weekend, and I did alittle alterations on Katie's dress. She looks so beautiful and grown up. She looks so much like me! She's my girl! I tell you what, my brother Joey will need to be prepared for boyfriends. Katie is very smart, in the gifted program at school, honor roll, yearbook staff, very popular! Just like her Aunt Donna! hahaha. Her momma is in the red shirt! Cathy has done a wonderful job raising my girl!
I love to boast about my family.
I have been working on my Halloween exchange today. My floss didn't come in the mail, so I decided to work on my Halloween project. Almost finished, unsure if I should post a picture or not, I don't know if my exchange partner reads my blog. So I'll wait to post till later.
John's smoked chicken was delicious! It turned out great. That chicken was picked to the bone. I so wanted to get a picture of how pretty it looked, but I forgot, I remembered toward the end of dinner. Oh well, you can imagine the chicken bones!
Well, off to the shower for me and to read HP Book 7, I just started the book last night. I can't believe that Dumbledore was killed off in Book 6! I was so upset last night when I finished.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Look what came in the mail!

I received my Fair & Square block exchange from Vonna today. I love it! It is perfect. I love the colors. I can't wait to get started on Round 3!

I also am posting a picture of my African violets that I grow. I read that Mary Kathryn picked one up at the store, I posted to her that they were very easy plants to take care of. I am terrible with plants, I usually kill them before their time. But, with the violets, I've been amazed, they have bloomed 3 different times now. I'm very happy with these plants. They love the window sill. It's the best place for them in my house.
Thanks to all my well wishers! I hope to pass my stone soon. I'm drinking lemonade, I drank a quart of lemonade today. The doctor told me to drink it. He says it helps to pass stones.

I didn't get my floss yet in the mail, hope it comes tomorrow. I want to stitch this weekend and relax.

John bought a smoker today, he is gonna smoke a couple of chickens this weekend for me. That way I won't have to cook. I love you honey! I'm trying really hard to get better. My kitties and doggie have stayed by my side today. They know their momma is under the weather.

Have a blessed weekend everyone!

Working hard on RR!

Working as much as I can on Edgar's RR, waiting on a couple of threads to come in the mail to finish up. I want to be finished by next weekend. That's my goal. I just love Tanya's new freebie! I want to start that one tonight or tomorrow. Since I haven't passed my stone yet, I'm gonna miss the Ga Tech versus Samford football game this Saturday, so I plan to stitch and relax.

Did see the surgeon today, blah blah, the usual, ct scan with IVP contrast, that test is next Wednesday, they are hoping I can pass the stone by myself. No such luck yet. Keep fingers crossed for me.

My brother is doing well after his surgery on Wednesday. Poor guy though. I felt bad for him because I know how much that procedure can make you feel. They did put a stent in him, no driving for a couple of days. He was one wupped puppy in the recovery room. I love you bro! I know he reads my blog!

Well, off to stitch before my meds make me sleepy. Just so you know, kidney stones run in our family. So far, I make them, Patrick makes them and my son Jacob has made one. He was 11 when he passed his first stone. What a thing to look forward too! Our Grammama died of kidney failure so we all need to watch out. I promise to drink more water!

Hope Ga Tech wins! I hate missing that ball game.

Go Yellow Jackets!

ps: Jason playing WOW. He loves that game!

Exchange Pictures & RR Update.

I can show you all Vonna's square, she received her squares over the weekend and now I can post a picture of what I stitched for her. I chose a LHN pattern that I modified just a bit. I think it looks great.

I'm also stitching away on Edgar's RR. Also a LHN pattern, it's gonna be a combined 3 patterns used to make one pattern just for Edgar. Hope he likes it.

Still hanging in there with the kidney stone. Haven't passed it, I see the kidney doctor on Thursday. Hope the week passes quickly for me. I want to feel better sooner.

Gonna go back to bed to rest. Been up for awhile, meds are making me sleepy! Hope everyone has had a nice Labor Day weekend!
