Stitching Weekend





Well since the weather was "frightfull" this weekend. I decided to do a little "bright" stitching. These 3 designs are from Oak Haven Designs.
First i stitched Snowflake 6,on 14 count pale blue aida.I stitched it with Precious Metal Effects E301.
Second i stitched Snowflake 7, on 14 count pale blue aida. I stitched it with Jewel Effects E3837.
Last i stitched Joy 2, stitched on 14 count pale blue aida.Stitched with Jewel Effects E699. Stitched the word joy with a scrap peice of bright red floss.
I like these pretty snowflakes better than the ones that where falling outside this weekend.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Hugs to all.

New Hair Cut

Went last week and got my hair cut. Finally found someone who cut it just the way i like it...SHORT...lololol....

Monopoly update

Here is the progress i have made on my Monopoly Board. Two sides completed and now on the third side. Wont be long now before its done...woohoo...lol

Blood work and Doc visit

On Friday Dec 4 i went and had blood work done.Just my normal 6 months.Then on Dec 11,i went for my 6 month checkup. Doc was concerned about some "numbers" being a little high concerning my liver.

So he had more blood work done that day. Monday he called and said that he wanted more blood work done in a month.

But every thing else is under control. I go tomorrow for a Mammogram. I hate those darn things. There should be a less painful way to do them...lol.

Decorated Mini Bails

This is a pic of some fall decorated mini bails i did last year and the year before. I even made some for a wedding reception as center peices. They where fun to make. But i really burnt myself on some hot glu.Took 3 layers of skin off when i pulled the glu off my finger...Ouch...i still remember the pain.

Book marks

This is my first attempt at makeing bookmarks. In the pick below i used scrap floss. I think it turned out nice.
On this bookmark below,i stitched with Jewel Effects threads. I love giveing a project a little glitter whenever i can. But it is sure a challange to work with. But it is worth it.

Sink Hole

Last week this sink hole opened up and ate my right leg...lol..Thank goodness i did not get hurt.
As you can see in the pic below. It has now been filled in...woohoo. Sure am glad of that.

Update

I have been busy this week. I made 24 scrubbies to take to the farmers market on saturday, if it dont rain. And i also joined another ornament exchange. I just love doing these exchanges. This is only my 2nd one. And they are fun.

Plus i have been stitching on the "Dont Bug Me". I just love the bright colors that i am useing. So today i will get back to working on some crocheted toppped towels for the market. I have a lady that ordered 15.

Thats no problem. I have till Nov 1st to mail out my ornie,so i have plenty of time. Anyway i am almost finished with the front side.....sshhhh....Katie you did not read this...lol.

So guess i better get busy.

A Little Scare

This afternoon i was walking around the garage, when the ground gave way under my right foot.
I went down in a hole up to my knee. A little sink hole opened up.

Thank goodness it was just one leg that went in. I got up out of the hole and went and told the
landlady what had happened. And i took her to see the hole.

The ground around the hole is sinking a little. And it goes under the garage. I just got a few
scrapes. No broken bones thank goodness.

Her and the kids roped the area off, and is waiting till her husband gets home. Then try to
deside what to do with the hole.

It sure gave me a scare.
