Snow, Ice, Rain......stayed home

Yesterday we had a dusting of snow, last night was sleet and then freezing rain.....but just rain now....we played ho0key from work, didn't want to deal with the ice covered roads in our housing development to get to we took leave....Only shoveling the ice off the driveway, walked/slid with the dog, laundry, dinner and some frogging....normally I dont frog but make the pattern my own...but this was a border (1/2 of it) so out it came. Not ready to stitch yet on it....I really do not stayed motivated if I have to frog or fix the stitching so I can continue......I will probably stitch on it tonight, finishing up the cats legs....then on to the border again. I also read the latest in the Jennifer Chiaverini's series The Quilters Kitchen, quick fun read today since I left my book at work yesterday (duh). Cant start the next one in the series until I finish this one..... I have many books I could read.... Watched the movie Hancock today it was good, if you like super heros.

First finish of 2009

Just finished the Crab is in. Will give it an iron tomorrow and maybe a pic. Feels good to have a finish already. Reading all the stitching blogs keep me motivated to stitch and to finish something. The rest of the day was taken up by chores, laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the floors. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Been stitching a little this weekend. A few hours at the LNS which had a stitching night went with my best stitching friend. Fun seeing all the stitching being done. I worked on the crab is in. ONe of the stitchers had completed it recently and told me to stitch around the letters so they stood out more. I did that yesterday when I went to my sisters. My sister and I did some shopping, didnt buy much...nothing we needed from the sales. This morning finished up the book Bloody Mary...if you like murder and police stories these are for you...very graphic on the murders. I am in the midst of baking cookies, reading the next in the series Rusty Nail and doing laundry. Hope to get to some stitching this afternoon. Enjoy!

Stitching on Sunday

Yesterday the stitching group got together at a nearby church. Stitched all afternoon, I started a new project to bring with me....because I was tired of all the half stitches in the one I was working on. So I started (yes another project) The Crab is In by Waxing Moon. What fun.....I am using WDW and Sampler Threads from The Gentle Art. I am stitching it on 28ct lambswool. Having fun with it. I completed the wording yesterday. No stitching today....out grocery shopping and dog food.

Into the New Year

No stitching today...might do some while watching the hockey game. Some sewing mojo....last night I made some curtains for my laundry room, the have flamingos, flowers and umbrellas on them. I have had the fabric for quiet a while. Today I made a fleece blanket for my niece which has horses on it. I sewed a border six inches in on the fabric, cut to the fabric and tied the pieces. I was watching I pronounce you Chuck and Larry, funny movie, I have seen it multiple times. Back to my craft room to make a pillow for the "Just Add Snow" Pine Mountain. In the pile of fabric I found some items to mend so I did those first, so back in the dresser to wear now. Made the pillow and used my "purple thang", highly recommend when pushing out the corners and filling with fiber fill. Walked the dog....had dinner then watched the VH1 Rock Honors "The Who"...great show. Now on to watch the hockey game. Til next time,
