Chili Pepper Mitten

Here is where I was after the pats game on Sunday...

Since I was feeling under the weather yesterday I decided to sit on the sofa and stitch most of the day away. Didn't get alot done but I did take a nap so that is my excuse for that LOL LOL. Apparently, the rechargeable batteries that I got with my old camera are not compatible with this camera so before I can take any more pics I need to go out and buy some batteries that are compatible. I will take another picture hopefully by the end of the day.

EDITED @ 9:19 PM Here is a photo of what Chili Mitten is looking like...

Ashley feel asleep on the recliner so I figured that this would be great opportunity to get some quiet time stitching in. Tomorrow Jerry has the day/night off so I am hoping that we can sit and watch his I Am Legend DVD that he got for Christmas. He has seen it and said that it is really good but I have yet to see it. I am also planning on making Lazy Man Lasagna tomorrow too. Off to stitch some more and then off to bed for this girl.

Mad Mommy Today

I got up this morning to find a BIG hole in my WIP. I know what most of you are saying "you left it out so it is your own fault that it got ruined". The only thing that is keeping me somewhat sane is the fact that I wasn't that far along. I am at my brother in laws right now and brought The Cricket Collection's Chili Pepper Mitten that I started working on so I am sure that you guys will see a picture either later tonight or tomorrow. Other than that not much going on here. Will talk to you all some more later.

Oh while I am thinking of it I got an idea from Carols' blog that I thought would be a really neat idea. I want to stitch ornaments this year and send them out to my various stitching firends, but I don't have anyone's address. If ylu are interested then please leave me a message here and email me at meye2cuties at gmail dot com.

Nasty Weather Coming This Way

Well we are in for some really nasty weather so no recess at school equals no work for me. I am going to embrace the time off til I have to go back until 2:15 so I think that I may pull out my Bear House Rules and work on that a little or I may just sit and work on one on of afghans some more. Other than that I don't have much more to share.

Football Sunday

While Jerry and his brother are watching football I am sitting here playing on the computer in between stitching. I decided to start a freebie from http://ludivineneuh.canalblog.com. It is called La Maisoin du Bonheur. It is a small picture so I fugred rather than lugging Bear House Rules and all the floss and stuff that goes with it that I would kit up a small project and make it my "football project" when we come over to my brother in law's house. I am going to try and take pics from my camera phone and see how they come put and then will post them on here.
EDITED: Picture added @ 5:14 PM

Last Picture Post

Well my camera has official gone to camera heaven.I put all the pictures on the computer before it did so until I save up enough money to get another one I am camera less for now. I did manage to get a picture of the finished Jordan project that I finished up yesterday. Just needs to be ironed and framed and then it can hang on his wall for him to enjoy. I have decide to stitch a Peony project that came with the new DMC Impressions fabric that I bought at AC Moore a few weeks ago. You can see a picture of the fabric here... When browsing Michael's the other day for some DMC 817 I came across some other Impressions fabrics but stopped myself from buying anymore fabric (until I go back to work of course LOL LOL). Then I am going to buy a couple more pieces. Off to take the kids outside for a little while before it starts to storm like they are predicting. Happy Stitching Day everyone!

A WIP and a Finish

After running out of DMC 817 last night I decided to pull out a UFO and figured I would finish this one up to pass the time. I am hoping to get Jordan's piece done by the end of the week. Looks like rain AGAIN so it may be a good night to curl up on the sofa and stitch the night away.

Bad Stitching Day Yesterday

OK whoever sent this frog to my house yesterday needs to come back and get it! I needed to frog out the A 3 times yesterday (maybe that is what I get for trying to stitch and watch a movie huh?) I was going to post the progress pictures but my camera batteries seem to be missing. I went out and bought some more this morning so once they are charges I will post them right away. Off to work on some email responses and then the day is ALL MINE!!!!

Just testing to see if signature works.

Free Personal signatures - cool!

Summer Stitching

I started on stitching a name piece for Jordan last night so there is no real reason for an update picture. I will post one soon though. I have also stiched a few small things that I want to make into magnets so next time I go to the Dollar Store I will check it out and see if I can find some magnets to sttich on the back of the pieces. Other than that not much going on here. Other than swimming and hanging out outside with the kids. Off to stitch some more.

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

It's TOO Hot!

Today is another 3 H day (hazy, hot and humid). UGH!!!! I did a few small things here and there but other than that I am just trying to sit and stay cool. The kids are hanging out in front of Jordan's bedroom window watching the carpenter downstairs fixing the bulked (sp?) door. That is keeping them relatively quiet so I think that I may go and sneak in some Mommy stitching time.

And We Are Back...

After being without my computer for a couple of days we are now reunited and it feels so good. I did get a good deal of stitching in though as I am sure that you can see. Off to spend time with the family and stitch some more.

Happy Heavenly Birthday Ma!

Here is an updated picture of my Rose Beauty. At first I was really not liking this one but it is starting to grow on me with the bright colors.

Today would have been my grandmother's 82nd birthday. Happy Heavenly Birthday Ma!

1 month anniversary

Yesterday was the one month anniversary of the death of my grandmother and as a way to feel closer to her I sat and stitched on my Rose Beauty. I took a picture but I am currently at my brother in laws house and the picture is on my hard drive at home. I have been stiotching on it here too so I will post a picture of the progress I have made while being here. I am sure that it isn't going to be that much of a difference but at least it is going to be some progress. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else worked on this weekend and as soon as I get back home I will post the progress that I made today.

Stitching Saturday

Here is the progress that I have made on my Rose Beauty project. I decided to leave the project on hte sofa and every time I passed it I put a few stitches into it. Have some laudry to do today, have to go and take a shower and get ready to go to brother-in-law's too. Off to start the fun LOL LOL

Update Pics

Here are 2 Barbara Ana quickies that I did this weekend and then the pic of Ashley name piece fiinshed (finally took a picture of it) and the last picture os the progress that I am making on Rose Beauty from the Babrbara Baatz Beautiful Blossoms leaflet.

Here Come the Rain

OK it has been a while since I have been on here but life has gottne in the way. I finished Ashley's name piece (pictures of everything to follow) and then the stitching bug kind of died down but I did get the crochet bug so I went with that for a little while. My grandmother recently passed away and I remember her always sitting with me when I used to sleep over and we would sit and corchet together so I guess that in a way that has made me feel better doing that. Kind of makes me feel closer to her.

Opinions and Help Wanted

Started stitching this for my daughter and can't decide if I want to fill in the letters or leave them as they are. If I did fill them in I would fill them with the border color. What do you all think I should do???

Monday, February 25, 2008

Darn Frog!

OK so who sent this darn frog? I spent literally 2 hours frogging the right side of my WIP this morning. I was off by one row and it threw the whole thing off. I also took the kids to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and went to get my hair cut. Now I am hoping that tonight I can work on WIP some more and actually stitch it the right way this time while watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 (LOVE THST SHOW!!!).

St. Sylvestre WIP

Here is my latest update on St. Sylvestre. This week is school vacation so I am hoping to finish if not come close to finishing this this week.

Saturday, February 02, 2008

Decided it was time that Ashley DEFINITELY needs to be in a big girl bed. Jerry is going to go to my grandparents house as soon as he gets up to get her bed and then the crib will be GONE GONE GONE. Now I tried once before to put her in her big girl bed and all she did was scream, but now she seems really excited to be getting one. Maybe that is because I promised to get her Tinkerbell sheets for her new "big girl bed". Hope you all enjoy the attached pics of my progress and of my 2 little monkies.

Mushy Monday

Thanks to the few inches of snow that we got yesterday it is now a mushy and icy day. I did manage to get lots done on St. Sylvestre yesterday and thought I would show off what I got done.

Sunday, January 20, 2008

Here is what I got done yesterday due to having a me day. Got lots of progress done.

Saturday, January 19, 2008

Have a load of laundry in the washer and other than that I have decided to have a day all to myself. I need to take Ashley to get her hair cut after she gets up from her nap in between that and getting the kids lunch in dinner then all I will be doing is....STITCHING!!!!! I am flying along on St. Sylvestre and loving every minute of it.

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Finally Some Sun

Well after having yet another snow day yesterday we finally have a day where the sun is shining. I opened all ofthe blinds in the house and am enjoying the sunlight. Here are a few pictures of where I was on St. Sylvestre before the Colts game on Sunday and where I was after San Diego beat the Colts. Now to just cross my fingers that the Pats go all the way!

Rainy, Cruddy Day

Finished Bride andGroom last night. Now what to stitch next. Decisions decisions. I am trying to decide if I want to do a rotation stitching or keep being just a one piece person.

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

Getting Closer

Getting closer to finishing Bride and Groom so I am 100% sure that I can finish in time for our anniversary.

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Happy 2008 to all bloggers!

Happy 2008! Last night I sadly did not make it to ring in the new year. I planned on reading and then watching some TV but ended up falling asleep while reading. I did get the names and date charted for my Bride and Groom Silouette last night so now I can work on that after I get a little further on my project. Off to order some pizza. Hope everyone has a great new year.
