Cleopatra after week 2


Here is Cleopatra after stitching on here for another two weeks. There really isn't anything to show right now, but I am moving right along. I have put in 2100 stitches in her over the past two weeks. I am very impressed with myself. This is 45 pages long. I started from the bottom this time. I have never done that lol. There is a first time for everything.


It was a good Christmas! It wasn't like I planned but, the kids had a good one. Skylar got Elmos. He was thrilled with them. Then he got a race track. He had a pretty good Christmas. Miranda and Justin had a good one also. They both got some winter coats which they needed, and shirts and other stuff. Ariel and I got gift cards. I got a gift card to Barnes and Noble. So I went in and got a new book. All in all we had a good Christmas!

Other stuff

Just wanted everyone to know. Internet may be down for a while, just until I get a job. I am hoping that it doesn't, I am hoping they will be nice and leave it on until I can get a job! But I promise I will keep in touch. I won't be gone long if they disconnect it

Stitching notes for the week


This is my HAED for my oldest daughter. It is All Hallows Eve I am stitching it on 14 count aida. I screwed up when I first started it and then I realized the fabric was turned the wrong way! It is coming along nicely. I usually do rotation and work on projects for one week, but I think I am going to keep working on this until I get frustrated or tired of it. I know I have all these other I need to do lol.
On a very nice note. I received a RAK today from a friend on facebook, I knew she was sending it, just didn't know when she was going to send it lol. She sent me some very nice patterns. I am anxious to start some of them. But I have 4 I need to finish. So I will be a good girl and wait. I also received another Rak from a friend and it was Cleopatra it is also a HAED. In my Rak gift that I received, I received fabric for it. So as you can see I really want to start something from my gift box.

Other news

Not really much on the home front. I still haven't put my tree up yet. I know I am putting it off, but I just haven't really felt like it and that is unusual for me. I usually have it up the day after Christmas. My mother is going to get the presents for the kids for me, which is a big help. Thank goodness they haven't asked for anything really big. I think the only major big thing I wanted was for the baby. So I think that is about it.

I am still searching for a job, not had much luck, but I am not giving up. I have an interview next week, with Staples. So I am keeping my fingers crossed. That will help if so much.

Have a great stitching week!

Tuesday ramblings about everything.

Well today was a very busy day. I ran errands and had to get batteries for the camera, if I didn't there wouldn't be any pictures of stitching or the kids. LOL I paid cell phone bill and also paid on furniture bill. I am getting a recliner tomorrow for just me to sit in and stitch. WHen that comes I am going to organize my stitching and get it all right where I need it so that I can have it right next to me. I am so excited. It has been awhile since I have had my own chair to stitch in. I also bought a flat screen tv. I am so excited about that also. I can't wait for that to come and then I will be in heaven. I have a new sofa to go with it, but haven't taken a picture of it as of yet. I am just excited about it. I needed the new furniture it was time.

I feel strange not posting stitching on this blog. But I have a new one and it is stitchingnotesandsuch and it is on blogger. I am eventually going to delete one of the blogs, I think it is going to be this one, but want to see if I can keep up with both.

I doubt it, but we will see. My friends that follow on here don't comment hardly anymore, and they know who they are, I miss you all terribly. I hope that you will post and say hi.

To all my friends on here

I have started another blog on here just for stitching. It is stitchingnotesandsuch. I am keeping this blog for personal and for my reading reviews or whatever you would call it. I am sorry to do this, but I was having some issues with my blog, and couldn't post on here. Thanks for understanding.

Here is the link

New picture of Skylar and of Ariel

Here is some new pictures of Skylar and of my oldest daughter Ariel. She is on the couch due to the fact that she has had surgery. My "little" man is keeping a vigil on her, as she is loopy from the pain medicine. He is her eyeball.

Part 2 of stitching update.

I am not sure if this is going to work, butI am going to try. I don't know why it wouldn't let me post blog with my picture yesterday, but it wouldn't let me and it was very frustrating. So I am going to see if this works.
The picture below is the new picture of Nature's Home Afghan. It is coming along nicely. I put it dow for the week and now am working on another one called Kittens on Shelf. Hopefully will have pics soon.
