Stitching update

This is Bed and Breakfast after a week. As you can see the trees are starting to show. Sorry that it is blurry, I jiggled the camera by accident. It is really coming along.

I haven't started my Christmas picture yet, but hopefully will get to soon. Right now I am concentrating on getting ready for my oldest daughter's birthday which is in a week. She will be 15. I can't believe that she will be that old.

Things are better here, I am still looking for another apartment. Renting a home is not an option, I called about one the other day, and they were asking $1200 dollars a month for a 4 bedroom. I thought I was going to pass out. I am not giving up.

I went scrapbooking Friday night. It was so fun. I haven't touched my scrapbook in almost 4 months. So it was nice to get some pages done. Now to take more pictures for it. LOL. But yes it was nice. My friend who held it is a Creative Memories consultant, and she called me and asked me if I still wanted to come, so I did, and then today I ended up giving in and ordering 26.00 worth of products, which is not bad considering. I needed some things anyway for the scrapbooks.

Classes are going well, getting ready to go and read a chapter that I need to read for psychology. I have to do an outline for the whole chapter. That is no fun really, but I am really liking the class. I have other homework too, that I need to get done, but I don't think I will do it in one night. To much work. LOL.

Well that is all for now, and I will go and hit the hay.

New picture

I have put a picture of what Bed and Breakfast will look like when it is finished. I should have a updated picture of my stitching progress this afternoon, or tonight.

Update on life and stitching

Okay, it has been a while since I have posted, and I feel just awful. This week has been one that I wouldn't want anyone to go through.

I switched telephone providers and so I called my ISP, to tell them that they needed to switch my DSL line to that phone company, well it is going to take a week. In the mean time I am using dial up :(. It isn't any fun at all.

Then the management of where I live wants to try and kick me out, but she can't because the money that she says that I owe was already paid, but she can't find it. I am really ticked. I showed her the receipt, and she said that she believes me, but she said she has to find the rest of the payment. But I am currently making other arrangements to find another place.

Stitching wise, I worked on Country Comforts last week, and this week I am working on a new Mystic Stitch called Bed and Breakfast. It is for my father. He loves Bed and Breakfasts. THe reason is that when my grandparents sold their home, the person that bought it turned it into a bed and breakfast. It is really neat. I do want to get a picture of the house and stitch that. So my mother is going to see if she can go down there and take the picture, but for now I am stitching the one I already have for my father.

I have been so stressed and so busy around here, that I couldn't deal with it, but thanks to some wonderful people I took their advice. They told me to keep stitching and that it is relaxing, so that is what I am doing. I was so fed up with people from the ISP, and from the office here at my apartment complex, that I didn't know what to do. I thought I was going to scream. It was really rough there for awhile. But I am better, and am dealing with it better now.

Today I am going to stitch, before I have to go to work, and then tomorrow we are having Easter at my parents, and then I am coming home and stitching for the rest of the day. I need it big time. It is really helping.

Well I am off, daughter needs to use the phone.

Classes are going well

They are going well so far. I was a little nervous about taking 6 classes in 4 nights, but I seem to be handling it okay. I have two nights that I only have one class, and they are early classes. I am enjoying them.

I have done some stitching on Country Comforts, it is really coming along. It is nice to have two nights out of the week, that I can stitch, especially when I have early classes.

Well everyone here is fine, my oldest daughter is the only one here that has a stomach virus. I have been staying away from her, I don't want to get sick. My boyfriend has been a big help this week, with her being sick, he has come and watched the other two while I have gone to class.

Well that is all there is to report for now. Have a good day everyone.

Weekly stitching update a day early

Hi everyone, lol! Well this week has been kind of laid back for me. I am now getting ready for classes, which start on Monday night. I am excited about starting a new semester.

We had state testing this week, those poor kids, were really fidgety, and tired. It is hard for little 5 and 6 year old kids to take a test, everyday. But they did well. I am so proud of them. Justin did well too. He isn't in my class, but I asked his teacher, and she told me he did very well.

Stitching wise, I haven't really done much stitching, but I am going to work on Country Comforts tonight. I want to make a dent in it. I did very well with my goals for this project. I wanted to complete the first three pages, and I have done that. It is looking nice. I can't wait to get it finished.

Rose Garden is coming along, as the new picture is in my previous post. I was hoping I would get it finished soon, but my goal for that has to be moved up. I hope to get it finished soon. I am loving how it is coming along though.

I still have this nasty cold, I felt just awful this week, and today I worked at second job, for three hours. They are cutting hours back today. I was supposed to work until 7 and got off at 2:30. It was nice. I came home and took a nap.

Now I am going to get some stitching done
