WOW!!! Two posts in one week

Wow two posts in one week. I am really on the ball.

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.

Weekly progress

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!

Stitching update

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.

Stitching update, but no picture

Wow! I feel so awful for not posting as much. But I do have a pretty big update. I have been stitching like crazy on Bed and breakfast. I am so thrilled with the way it is coming along. I haven't been able to post a picture. I will hopefully post one in the morning. I also have an updated picture of Season's Greetings. That is coming along nicely also. The blues in it are driving me crazy, but it is really coming along.

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.
