This is a progress is picture of Part 2. I am really enjoying this. I am very pleased so far with the results. It is coming together nicely. I am finding this to be a fast stitch for me, but I think that is because I am off for two weeks, and can sit down while the kids are watching movies or on the computer and stitch, and not be interuppted.
I can't do that today, because my oldest Ariel is sick with a stomach virus of some sort. She has been vomitting every five minutes and all that good stuff. I feel bad for her. My mother has the other two which is good. So if I can get Ariel situated, I will try and do some stitching. I am not really worried about the stitching today, because of her being sick.
Well I went to get my camera, and was short 49.00. I was so disappointed. I am hoping to get it on Monday after going for a doctor's appointment. The one I wanted is sold out, but I am going to try to find another one.
Well Ariel is calling me to come and help her. Happy Stitching!

Stitching update is here finally! I hope that you all can see this picture of Castles in the Air. Part 1 is finished and I started Part 2 last night. I had to start stitching in hand due to the beads. My qsnaps are in use for another project and I didn't want to take them off of that project. It has been a long time since I stitched in hand especially with a big piece of fabric like this. But I am enjoying stitching this.
I am thrilled with the way it is turning out.
Today I am going to stitch away until our friends come over and then hopefully do some stitching tonight. I have straightened up the house, and put dishes in dishwasher. The only rooms I haven't done are my room, and the kids room. I will wait til the weekend to do those, since I know there will be presents for them from Santa that will need to go in their room.
Well that is it for me. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I will post another picture soon.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!

I really hope that everyone can see this. I fought with my camera all morning and I think I finally have a decent picture of Castles in the Air. It is really looking nice.
Today I am off work due to closing for snow. It is nice to sit and stitch, which I haven't done in a long time. I needed one day, to just sit and relax. I have been going non stop, and it seems like that is all I do. So this is a nice thing.
Well off to stitch somemore. Have a great day all

Sorry that it has been so long in posting. Just been tired and busy trying to get things done around here. The baby is coming on February 26, so I am busy getting things ready for him.
In the meantime I started another project. It is Castles in the Air, I am sorry that it is so dark. For some reason, when I took the picture with the flash, all that came out was a white picture, so I took the flash and turned it off. This is what I got when I took it without the flash. I will try and take another picture this afternoon. I was excited about starting this. It is in 24 parts, and I really like it so far. I think I got my stitching mojo back. I think I was getting tired of the drab colors of Egyptian Princess, but that is okay. I am going to try a weekly rotation between Castles and my Princess. We will see how it works this time. I never seem to want to stick to it, but I hope that i can this time.
It snowed here, and it is pretty, sorry no pictures. I didn't think about taking pictures. Just didn't feel like it. I am hoping that it stays around til Christmas. It would be nice to have a white Christmas. The kids are hoping that there is no school tomorrow, I told them we would see. It would be nice, need to relax a little. I have been going non stop since I got up yesterday. I plan to sit tonight and today and just relax and stitch. If there is no school tomorrow, I will do the same thing. I just hope the kids will leave the house cleaned up, they like to just leave everything on the floor or out and not put stuff away. KIDS!!!!!! What can I say.
Well I am off to work on stitching for a bit, and will post another picture later on.

I am going to make some ornaments for it. I have some on there already, but my goal is to have my tree nothing but cross stitch ornaments. I am going to Hancock's this weekend and see what kind of Christmas fabric I can find for the back of the ornaments. I am wanting to stitch some ornaments of angels also, I am searching for those. But all in all, I am pleased with the way this turned out. I have the house decorated up, but I didn't take pictures of it. That is one thing I will do tomorrow.

Well this week, has been a little busy and hectic. Ariel my oldest ha a cyst behind her left ear. She started getting severe headaches and I thought that they were migranes, so did she. I ended up taking her to the ER and they did a cat scan and found the cyst. They are not going to operate, but gave her antibiotics, and pain meds and told her to put hot compresses on it. Other than that she is fine. I was a little upset, because it took her so long to get her the cat scan. But I do understand, there were a lot of stroke victims that needed to be seen. Other than that she is hanging in.
Miranda doesn't have lice anymore, the poor thing. I felt bad for her, she was pretty upset all last week that she couldn't go to school. She told me that she felt nasty. I told her that these things can happen, and that from now on she just needs to be careful about who she lets borrow her brush. I don't think she will let anyone borrow her brush anymore period.
As for me, I am hanging in. Just tired. My next semester of classes start on Wednesday. I am excited, and a little worried, but it is for a good thing. It will cut back on stitching time, but I will not let that stop me from stitching. I want to get EP finished so that I can frame it for Ariel. She is watching my progress with anticipation.
Well that is it for now, but I will have picture tomorrow of EP

I am really enjoying this alot. Ariel is happy with it also. She can't wait until it is finished. I am hoping to have it done by her birthday in April. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be.
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
The reason that I haven't been able to stitch, as much is that Ariel has decided that she wants to come back home for good. I am so excited. I cried, and so did Miranda. Justin was just like it is another day, so whatever. LOL.
We are getting along well, and I am glad. She is glad that she is home.

Ariel is doing a little better, she is handling things better, than she was, but it is a long process. I have to say I am proud of her, and couldn't ask for a better daughter than her. Not saying that Miranda is not a good kid, she is. What I mean is, Ariel is a brave child and I am proud of her..
Well I am off to bed.

I just wanted to post a picture of a recent updated picture of Egyptian Princess. I am really smoking on this one. It is nice to have the two days off. Of course with it snowing we may even have tomorrow off. It is snowing like crazy here. I am so excited. My two younger kids, Miranda and Justin are excited. They keep looking out the window to see how much snow there is on the ground.
So I plan to sit in the house and not go anywhere today, and maybe do a movie marathon, and stitch, we will see. It all depends, if not then I will listen to my IPOD. I need to add some more songs to it. I am getting tired of listening to the ones I have. LOL.
I can't believe that this is a little of 5 percent done. I am just amazed at how fast I am going. That is a good thing, if I keeep it up, it may be done for my oldest daughter's birthday. YEah right.
NOt doing much today, except sitting in the house and enjoying the snow fall and stitching, I may even take the Christmas tree down, as I haven't done that yet. My kids are really bugging me about why I haven't taken it down yet. I just don't feel like it yet. LOL. Well I am off to get some stitching done. Have a good stitching day.

I wasn't sure when the last time was that I posted an update, but here is another one. This is an updated picture of Egyptian Princess. The picture of her is in my Wish LIst. I don't think I deleted that yet. It is pretty bad when you can't remember what you have on here or what you don't have.
This is for my oldest daughter. It is Cleopatra, and she did a book report on her last year and ever since then she has been fascinated with her. I am not sure why, maybe because she is pretty or that she was a queen, not sure there. I have worked on it some more, just haven't taken a picture of it yet. But it is really coming along.
We are off from school today, so I am going to sit and stitch for the rest of the afternoon. I have cleaned the house, and everything is done, now I can sit and have some "me" time. It is so nice.
It is supposed to snow here today off and on. I am excited about that, they are saying flurries today, and tomorrow we are supposed to get an inch or so. That will be nice.
The kids are enjoying their day off, we have off tomorrow also, so maybe I can get some good stitching time in. We shall see.
Well I am off to stitch!

Good morning! Well I know I have been lax in posting updates and all that good stuff, sorry. Well here is an update picture of Bed and Breakfast. I am very pleased with it. I know that this is for my dad, but I am leaning on keeping this for myself. But I don't think that I will. I am busy trying to get this finished, so that I can pull out my UFO Country Comforts and also start on the one I want to do for my daughter. The Egyptian Princess. She is bugging me about it, and also my middle daughter is wanting me to do a butterfly one for her, I think I have a HAED one somewhere in my stash. IF not more SEX for me. Other than that we are just staying all nice and cozy in the house. It is supposed to snow today, so I am not going anywhere at all. I plan to finish straightening up the house and stitch away.
I also worked on Season's Greetings for a bit, but the blues were driving me crazy, so I had to put it down. BUt I will pick it back up eventually. Maybe when the Christmas stitching comes out again. Like in July. LOL.
Things here have been good. Trying to recover from Christmas, which is a good thing. The kids had a good Christmas, and so did I. We all are pleased with what everyone got.
I haven't tried the fabric dying yet, I think I am a little chicken as to trying that, but I will get my nerve up soon.
Well off to finish the household duties and then to stitch for a bit, and maybe even a nap. We will see.

Christmas was a big thing. My kids made out like bandits this year. They got almost everything that they asked for. They were all happy. I got what I wanted this year also. I asked for a photo printer and yes, I did get one. I was very happy.
Other than that I am just trying to catch up on the stitching and my blogs.
