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 Dec. 24

First I want to tell everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope everyone's Christmas is a wonderful day. We are just going to spend it here at home, and have a family Christmas. We have friends coming tonight, to exchange presents, and all that good stuff. Other than that it will be a quiet one.

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.

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

Weekly update

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.

It is Christmas in the Wall Household

Well it is up finally! A friend came and helped me to put up the tree. I have been neglecting getting it up and I am glad that I finally got it up. I have to say I think it looks better this year then it did last year.

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.
