Changing a Pattern a Bit

Since I ordered some patterns on Friday and they were shipped yesterday then they should get here today or tomorrow so as I was sitting stitching tropical fantasy I began to think "I can't wait to start stitching some more huck towels (bought some new patterns for that)" so rather than start something else and let TF go unfinished I figured I would stitch each fish separately and then hang them in the bathroom.

Dreary & Rainy Today

Well today was a dreary and rainy day so I sat and watched Guess Who which I had ordered from Netflix and I stitched a little bit. Was not really in the moody because the kids were being too loud so I will probably work on it some more once the kids are in bed and I can sit and catch up on Deseprate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy tonight.

Jenn had asked about seeing a picture of Tropical Fantsy that I am working on so here you go girls...

Off to eat the hot dog specials that DH made for dinner tonight.

Here Fishy Fishy

Sorry that I have not posted anything lately. Was in a funk about stitching for a few days but I am back. Here is where I was as of 10:30 this morning on Tropical Fantasy. Love how the colors in TF are so pastel-like.

I was naughty today!

Ok now that your mind is out of the gutter ROFL. I told myself that I would only work on one project at a time but... I couldn't help myself and I started on Stoney Creek's Tropical Fantasy today. Haven't worked on enough of it yet to be worth a picture so once I get more done I will do another posting. Off to bed. Blog more later!

Just chatting

Well here is where I am so far on my Blue Posy. Tonight DH goes to bed early since he has to work all day tomorrow so it is just me and the kids for dinner tonight. Thinking I may make shrimp spaghetti. Hoping to be able to get some more stitches into this projecto nce the kids head off to bed. I am also thinking of pulling out my Siamese Cat WIP. Will see what I feel like doing once later rolls around.

Wet Friday

Well today turned out to be a good day to stitch since it has been raining off and on. Been working some more on my blue posy but since I put the camera in the car so that I would have it tomorrow morning then I can't take a pic right now. So glad that I tried the evenweave because now I am really starting to like it. Well pizza is just about ready. YUMMY YUMMY!!!!

Grew some courage today...

and went to AC Moore to buy some 28ct. evenweave which I have already started stitching on. I have never stitched on evenweave before. For some reason it seemed VERY intimidating to me. There were a couple times today that I was ready to just say forget it and move on to something else but I have stuck with it and will continue to stitch after Jordan goes to his great grandma's tonight. Will post a picture once I get a little farther along.

UPDATED @ 6 PM OK here is where I am so far on my Blue Posy. I am quite happy with the way that this is looking so far and am thinking of stitching on evenweave from now on, but will still stitch on aida too. Can't wait to get back and work on this some more so off I go!

Hot off the needle!!!

Here is the picture of the finished Carousel Horse that I literally just put the last stitch into Well I am tired so off to bed I go, but I couldn't go before I shared my happiness with everyone LOL LOL.

Back on Track Now

For the time being anyway LOL LOL. I finally got everything frogged and went to work on the other side of the carousel only to find that I had made yet another mistake. Guess this will teach me to stitch and watch TV at the same time HAHA. Everything is starting to look much better so I am now happy again. Will update a little later tonight once I take an updated picture.

***EDITED 7:15 PM*** OK I think that I have the mistakes all taken care of now. I am going to be working on this after I am done here on the computer once everyone is in bed and I can get some quiet time. I am hoping that listening to Desperate Housewives in the background while stitching will prove to be safer than looking up every few moments and watching. Apparently that is what got me in trouble last time HAHA. Here is an updated picture which like I said I hope is mistake free.
