HAPPY HALLOWEEN (for real this time!)

Haven't gotten to work on CH today but I am definitely going to try anf get some done on it before I hit the hay tonight. Found out this morning that my LNS is going out of business so now I am really going to have to be nice to DH to get some money so I can shop shop shop LOL LOL. Off to check out a few patterns that I have so that I can stock up on floss and stuff like that!

First off I would like to apologize for being so out of it yesterday. I am not sure why I made the title yesterday say Happy Halloween. I guess all the trick-or-treating got to my head LOL LOL.

Anyway today in between doing my household "chores" I worked on my Carousel Horse. I LOVE these horses and the colors that they are stitched up with. Have been trying to post a picture, but blogger is preventing me from doing so.

Happy Halloween

Today turned out to be a really crummy day for trick-or-treating here in Manchester. It was soooo windy I thought that the kids might blow away. Took the kids to the mall instead so that they wouldn't be so cold. Worked on Carousel Horse for a little while today (haven't been able to pick it up for a little while now). Here is where I have gotten so far.

Going to go and stitch for a little while more while watching House and Desperate Housewives then to bed I go. Back to the daily grind tomorrow!

Finally went to my mom's so that I could get a picture of this (forget to take a picture once I got it back from the framer).

Carousel Horse #2

Here is where I am on Carousel Horse so far. Jordan is off at school and Ashley is taking a nap since she got up at 5 this morning. Think it is a good time to go and sit my butt on the sofa and stitch??? More updates to come later!

Dreary Tuesday

I got tagged by Jenn to do the seven song list.

The rules; List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Had a Bad Day by Daniel Powter
Street Corner Symphony by Rob Thomas
Chain Hang Low by Yung Joc
Moneymaker by Ludacris and Pharell
American Pie by Don McLean
Son of a Preacher Man by Aretha Franklin
Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake

I tag the following

I worked on my Carousel Horse some more last night but didn't make enough progress to warrent a picture. Will tryand post on once I have worked on it today. Have the pumpkin spice candles going already since it is such a dreary day.

Another Post Gone

I tried to post earlier this morning but my post has seemed to have disappeared into outer space. Took out another Carousel Horse pattern to go along with the first one that I have already stitched for Ashley. I am stitching the first horse pictured in this scan. These are so quick and the greatest thing about them is NO BACKSTITCHING! LOL LOL

Another quickie finished

Here is Lizzie Kate's October Flip It that I stitched up in about 24 hours.

Yesterday we lost one of our officers in blue due to a tragic shooting that was VERY uneccessary. RIP Officer Briggs. My thoughts and prayers are with your wife and small children.

Lots of prayers needed today

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this poor officer who was shot in the line of duty early this morning http://www.unionleader.com/. Here is a picture of a freebie from Waxing Moon that I stitched yesterday while watching that Food Network's Guiness Book of Records Marathon.

I have an ouchie

Got up this morning and my thumb was bothering me so unless it gets better soon I don't think that I will be stitching tonight :(. Jenn was asking about what Momma is going to look like so here is the link to a picture. http://www.123stitch.com/cgi-bin/itemdetail.pl?item=02-2172

Went to visit Grammy this morning and she is doing so much better. She hardly had any visitors so she got to rest today nad I think that that helped alot.

Get Well Soon Grammy!

Due to some serious health problems my grandmother has been hospitalized so right now if I seem to babble then please bear with me. I have not worked on Momma and Luke as much as I would have liked to due to worrying over my Grammy too much but here is how I am fairing on it so far.

On a brighter note here is a picture of my 19 month old daughter Ashley feeding her baby "num num" LOL.

My head is so congested today that I wasn't sure that I was even going to be able to concentrate on stitching but I got a little done and thought I would post my progress.

Sluggish Monday

Well after being very disappointed by the reaction that I got with the Elvis profile that I have stitched so far I have decided top put it aside, finish Momma McBruin, and then I will eventually finish Elvis Elvis for Jerry and I. Here is how far I got before working on Momma last night...

I received a handful of patterns from a very good friend and am trying to decide which one of the patterns I want to stitch next. Going to go and drool some more over all these great patterns. Will take a picture later. Oh yeah forget to say too the I got my Iris on the Veranda piece that I had framed for my mom back from the framers today but I was so excited about getting it to her that I forgot to take a picture. Will have to take one the next time that I go over there.

Is it just me or...

is blogger doing a crappy job of keeping us up to date on which blogs are new and which ones aren't? Some of my blogs come up with new while others that are new don't have anything next to them.

Put Momma McBruin aside until Monday as I got a great outline of Elvis' face which is a very quick stitch so I am going to stitch it for my MILs boyfriend and then be able to give it to him on Sunday when they come over to watch the Patriots game and have dinner with us.

Off to work on Elvis some more while Ashley is napping.

Bear Paw

Here is where I am so far on Momma McBruin and Luke. Going to take it with me and work on it at my MILs where we are going to go to watch the Patriots game and have some dinner.

Such a dark and dreary day that I figured today would be a good day to sit and stitch and do not much of anything else LOL.
