Hi blogging world! Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving..well those that were celebrating it. LOL T and I had a nice one. Just a quiet evening at home with some chicken, mashed potatoes and corn. I had gravy on my potatoes. Yum! :) We didn't really feel like doing the "turkey" thing as we eat turkey all the time anyway. LOL So a quiet supper and an evening of watching the football games. Hehe..

Friday we braved the non existent crowds for Black Friday Wal Mart shopping! I know..I hear your gasps and the vision of your eyes widening, but I no choice as I need a few things. However, we were smart in that we waited till about 4:30pm to go out. Otherwise, I would have needed a strong tranquilizer for both T and myself once dealing with those shoppers early in the morning!! But surprisingly, Wal Mart was very empty which was a pleasant surprise. We were out in about an record office here I come! LOL

But as I promised some PICTURES!!! Hooray!! Yes...they are actual ornaments..minus the beads. I have to get those later on today..being it's Saturday. I'll pop out to the store once again to get some beads and some Christmas cards. I do have other ones done, it's just they claim to need more light to get better pictures of themselves. Bah humbug..I hate working with prima donna ornies! LOLOL No, I promise..I haven't been dipping in the egg nog..**grin**. On to the show:

Blackwork Noel: Stitched with DMC Variations 4240 for ???????

San Man January Freebie: Just a part, stitched in a Carrie's Thread Limited Ed. Color

Anyhoo, there will be another entry for today as it's my stitching day with my friend. Sadly, I'm losing the shop we go to for stitching. My really good friend is unfortunately not able to continue the business and will close Dec 23rd. I'm a bit bummed out about this as she is a wonderful person and I just love hanging with her and my friend R for stitching. I guess we'll have to find a new a moment of silence as another Brick and Mortar goes under. :(

Have a good day all! Go support your local Brick and Mortar shops!! :)

Happy Stitchin!

Hi blogging world! Hope everyone is doing well. Anybody been searching for me in the lost and found recently? Anyone noticed that I haven't been on a computer for nearly 1 and 1/2 weeks?? LOL I'm worries. :) Just decided that the only way to get some ornaments done was to dicipline myself from the computer. COmputer time..equals negative stitching time. So, I've been stitching...and have FOUR ornaments done! YAY!! Pictures to come soon..but I have to get back to buisness! Just wanted to let everyone know i"m still here..and that I miss you all!! :)

Happy Stitchin!!

Howdy do blogging world! Just to let you know, I'm in the process of switching over to the new Blogger, so if you see anything wonky going on with my blog, just be patient. :) Yes, wonky is a technical term. Hehe..

Anyhoo, it's been a couple of rainy days here in my little part of the world. Good days for stitching though the temperature changes are playing havoc with me. Bah! One day it's in the 30s with the heaters blaring, the next day it's in the 70s. Mother nature must be having her pre winter moodswing! LOL Tonight was the weekly pilgrimage to the Post Office to check my mail and the grocery store. Christmas stuff is up EVERYWHERE now!! Skip Thanksgiving...straight to Christmas....whoosh! LOL

Picture day will come tomorrow...yes I have an ORNAMENT finished!!!! Please check your weather forecasts for SNOW! LOL Now on to the SBQ:

How many different brands of “complete” embroidery floss sets do you own? How do you keep track of it? (i.e., spread sheet program, index cards, palm pilot, etc.)

Ok..I have DMC, SSS, Carrie's Threads, Anchor, Needle Necessities and a few WDW. I do not own an entire collection of any threads...working on it. LOL As far as organization, they are in those plastic boxes wrapped on bobbins. However, I also have a huge bag of those waiting to find their home on a bobbin. Wrapping floss is just so monotonous! Blah! I need to print out the check lists and go through them all so I know which ones I need....maybe that's a project for the New Year. Hehe..

Alright...enjoy the rest of your day! Happy Stitchin!!

Howdy do blogging friends! Hope everyone is staying warm and happy! It's COLD here! Though I have yet to have the need for hot cocoa, however, I'm sure that's coming soon. I am dressing like a polar bear. Sweatshirt, sweatpants, thick socks and have three blankets on the bed. LOL Anyhoo, I promised I'd share the goodies I got for my birthday so here you go! Enjoy! Descriptions are under each picture...THANK YOU TO ALL of my friends who made my birthday so special! :) I love each and every one of you! :D Now let the fun begin:

A surprise from my new friend Karen. She doesn't have a blog but she's on a message board I belong to. She stitched a lovely Red Poppy bookmark and placed it on a card. Also gave me some DMC Variations, a lovely handmade scissors fob and two cute stitchy kits. Whoo hoo!! :) THANKS KAREN!!

This lovely package came from my friend Lani. She is a very dear friend of mine whom I miss terribly!!! The ironic thing is she actually sent the package on the day of my birthday! Hehe :) She crocheted me some new scrunchies! YAY!! THANKS LANI! *HUGS*

My lovely stitch-in partner Robin gave me this package. She lives only about 20 minutes away and we stitch together once a month at the local LNS. She hand stamped two sets of notecards for me. Funny story as I was talking about the last time we were together how I needed to run and get some blank notecards for Thank You notes and such. ;) She also included a cute little pattern complete with the threads! YAY! THANKS ROBIN!!

Finally we have my two Sissies!! They were the ones I visited this summer at the beach! HEhehe...No, they aren't my real sissies as I'm an only child. ;) Big Sissie sent me the pattern and Little Sissie sent me the cute mitten buttons. They know how much I love mittens!! Strange, I know. :) For your info, I'm Baby Sissie. ;) THANKS SISSIES WUV YU!!

Oops! Forgot one thing! This is the lovely needle roll that my Birthday exchange partner made for me! She included a floss holder and a couple of other things in the package. :) It was through a board I belong to. THANKS ANN-MARIE!!

Ok..I think I got everything! LOL I've got to take a picture of the scissors Jenna gave me too! They are such a lovely shade of blue! She knows me quite well ;) HEhe...So I'll be busy with Christmas ornaments and thank you notes. If you don't see me in a few days, I'm buried under a pile of note cards, stickers, kitted up Christmas ornaments and blankets since it's cold. Just leave a Kit Kat out and if it disappears, you know I'm still around! LOL


Happy Stitchin!!

It's simple as this:

The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of "art" made by me. Be sure that I can email you to get your snail mail address. Think of it as something to look forward to getting in the mail. It will be original, made by me, but it may not be immediate, as I haven't made them yet. I am not sure what it will be.

There is a catch, of course, the way this works is that if you sign up, you have to blog this as well and continue sharing.

Note From Stitch: I take it on my own conscience that these gifts will completed with the most attention to your details and desires. I will do my best to make sure that not only do they represent you but that you will hopefully love them. They will be stitched in some format unless you like jewelry. LOL I am allotting myself at least 6 months to complete these starting December 26th. Please upon responding in my comment section, leave an email address so that I may contact you about this. Thanks so much! Don't forget to pay it foreward yourself as you have to post this on your blog! :D

Happy Stitchin!!
