Fall House Sampler

This is my progress so far- I started this last fall I think it was and finally picked it back up this late summer/early fall. I'm trying to finish up things I've started before I start anything else. I like how this is coming along. I'll be glad though to finish the bottom and actually start working on the top where the house is. :-)

Gary Glitter

OK, what is wrong with this picture. A few years ago Gary Glitter was put in prison in the UK for 54 counts of child pornography, from what I hear pretty explicit stuff. How long did he stay in jail?? 4 months. That's it!! And now he is wanted in Vietnam for messing around with underage girls. Hello. That's what happens when you only lock him up for 4 months. Should have been at least a year per count.. so that's 54 years. Sorry.. just had to get that off my chest. Couldn't believe it when I read that the other day!

ebay fun

Ever go to the feedback of someone who won one of your items, and see what else they have won in the past? It can be quite intersting.

American Princess

Did anyone watch this? I confess when I saw the commercials I thought it looked rather ridiculous. But dh was watching one of the episodes on the marathon WE was having and I got hooked, I'm glad I could watch them all at once! I liked both of the last two contestants, but Michelle was my favorite and she won. :-) I'm excited for her! Wonder if she and her family get to move to England and she gets to be an actual princess or what.. hope we find out!

Saturday night

Well I don't know if I have enough to say to fill up two blogs but I like messing around with the settings on this one so I'll keep it, if anything just for stitching updates and a random thought here and there. I like Yahoo 360 cause I can limit who reads it but there's not the fun templates and fun stuff you can add, at least not yet. I like the burgundy in this template, thought it was kind of fall- ish. I love fall. I hope the temps cool down soon so it feels like fall!

Finished this Friday for my co-worker/friend Jean for her birthday. I can't wait to give it to her Monday! Posted by Picasa

Uneventful weekend

Stayed around the house mostly,but was lazy with my stitching! Didn't get much done. I worked on the "surprise" I'm working on, and a bit on Christ in Gethsemane. I love working on that one, but it is frustrating cause even when I work on it for a while I feel like no one will be able to tell yet! Maybe after I work on it this week I will post a pic.
We watched a funny British horror movie over the weekend, "Shaun of the Dead." Kind of gross in parts, but funny!!
We are anxiously awaiting David to roll over.. he keeps looking like he's going to but then doesn't.. maybe soon.. he is "talking" up a storm tho, always cooing and making noises! It's adorable!
Oh well.. not much going on otherwise.. gonna go have some ice cream.

quick post

Was lazy most of the day yesterday, then a friend brought her kids over for us to watch for a couple of hours. They were really good and had a good time, in fact the older one stayed the night so Hanna had her first sleepover. I don't feel old enough to have a child that wants to have friends spend the night. lol

David is doing great. He is such a smiley baby I just love it.

Stitch-wise, haven't gotten as much done this past week as I had hoped. Worked a little on my strawberry scissors case and a little on the surprise I am working on.. hopefully I will get more done today but I don't know.. am getting lazy about the laundry again and it's piling up. Sigh.... also have dishes to do.. will try to knock those out early in the day.
Well better get going, have to feed the baby and get ready for church!

Catching up

I keep meaning to get on here and just haven't gotten around to it..

First Happy 4th to all my friends here in the USA! No big plans for us today, just cooking on the grill and staying around the house. Don't want to get on the road unless absolutely necessary for fear of those who have had one too many.
David is sleeping through the night for the most part- he started on the 30th of June. He woke up last night but he is sleeping thru more nights than not. He is starting to grab toys and things, it's so neat to watch!
I'm making some progress on my stitching, trying to work on things now to get them finished, so I don't feel so guilty about starting something new! I may try to finish my L*K strawberry scissors case today, it was fast becoming a UFO and have been actively working on it again. I've also been working on a secret project to surprise a friend of mine.
As for reading, I've been reading the Monica Ferris books based around a fictional needlework shop called "Crewel World". When I am done with these I am going to read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Generally I don't like to read books before I see the movie, but they have done so well with the Harry Potter movies I don't think I need to worry in this case.
Well guess I better go.. laundry calls and stitching too!

What to do...

I am running out of room on my webshots page! I had to delete a photo to add one today.. but am to cheap right now to become a paying member. hmmmm
On the up side I finally finished something! My Oct. flip-it! I'm hoping to finish my ornament/Christmas motif tonight. All I have is the backstitching. I have to go to bed early tonight tho cause I have a class in the morning, an hour away so I am going to have to get up EARLY cause registration starts at 8 am. UGH.
My in-laws visited this past week- we had a good time and were sorry to see them go. I had to work while they were here but took Wednesday off and we all went to the beach. It was fun and we ate some good seafood. Well enough blabbering for now, need to go catch up on some email!

October flip it finally finished on June 19, 2005! Yippee! Posted by Hello

Finally a moment to blog

Good things yesterday!! The baby slept "late" so I got ready for work and ate breakfast and all before he woke up. Bonus! He is pretty much sleeping thru the night now except for waking once to eat.. but that's no biggie compared to staying up most of the night/morning! Oh what else happened yesterday... I know there was something else..oh well.
Today was pretty good too.. not too too busy at work,kids have been pretty good tonight. David stayed awake and "talked" cooed at me while I made dinner. It is so cute. Had a chance to stitch already today and am hoping to stitch some more tonight after the kids are sleeping. Hoping to watch The Two Towers too, for a bit, will probably not stay awake for all of it!

Amish goodies

OK, I have been reading these suspense books by Karen Harper lately- and they take place in Amish communities, so I have been interested in all things Amish lately. Found this side with some neat goodies: www.amishvillagestore.com . I love the quillos, may have to get me one of those someday!

soooooooo sleeeeeeeeeeepyyyyyyyyyyy

I don't know why! Yes, David is still waking in the night, but is sleeping for a few hours at a time, at least in the beginning of the night. Right now I am dizzy I am so tired. As soon as Hanna gets to bed I am going to hopefully go myself.. except for the baby is still awake and Rob's not home.. and he is not really falling asleep on his own yet..hmmmm
Well better go.. Hanna won't go to bed until I get off of here..

Hanna, David, and David's bear that's as big as him! :-) Posted by Hello

I'm still around..

Long time no blog, sorry about that! I don't get much computer time these days. Spare time is spent sleeping or doing housework, which seems to never end and the house is still a mess. Anyone want to come help me clean? lol I have managed to get a tiny bit of stitching in here and there.. worked on my flip it a bit and my Christmas ornament.. still no finishes tho.
David is growing like a weed.. took him in to the dr. the other day cause his cord still hadn't fallen off and he weighed 10 lbs 12 oz! I asked the nurse if I heard her right, I couldn't believe it. The doc put some silver nitrate on his cord and it fell off that night, his belly button still looks kind of weird tho.. will give it a few days and see what happens.
He is becoming more interactive now, he coos sometimes when you talk to him and smiles quite a bit. It's just the cutest thing!!
I have yet to catch it on camera yet tho. I almost did yesterday but he was in the swing and it was swinging so the picture turned out blurry, darn it.
I'm back at work, this is my last week of part time, waaaaaaaaaah. I have enjoyed my 2 days off a week.. but can't afford to keep them. Maybe someday..
Hanna's last day of kindergarten was today- she got the citizenship award for her class, which is the best award she could get, the teachers choose one student to get it and it's basically for outstanding behavior the whole year. The principal signs the award certificate and everything. So I'm a proud mommy.
Well I guess that's about it right now.. will post a pic of the kids I took the other day. Wow, still seems weird saying "the kids" TTFN!

Life with baby

Is fun, but tiring!! Thankfully Rob can sleep thru the TV. Usually I hate having the TV in our room, but it has been nice during night-time feedings. I have been watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I've been pretty good about sleeping when the baby sleeps, but didn't get my nap in today.
I can't believe week 3 of my leave is almost here. I am most likely going back part time week 4, and I have to say even though I enjoy my job and love my co-workers, I am not looking forward to going back. I have enjoyed my stay-at-home-mom time. But due to money mistakes we have made, I can't afford to stay home. Boy am I kicking myself now. At least I have found a good friend to watch David and Hanna this summer, so I won't have to put him in a daycare environment right away.
Oh well.. better get going.. have dinner to make, and a baby to wake. LOL

David is here!

And already a week old! I am a little slow in posting.. let's blame it on lack of sleep. I was having pretty rough contractions last Wednesday, they were still far enough apart that the hospital didn't advise coming in, but I went and got checked anyway. They admitted me and about two hours later David was born. :-) Unfortunately they thought I did NOT want an epidural and I didn't find out until it was too late.. but he may not have been born as quick if I had one I suppose. ;-) Will post more later but wanted to check in!

7 more days..

Hopefully less? Have a doctor's appt today so we'll see what he says..
the weekend was ok, Saturday we stayed home for the most part, grabbed a bite to eat in the evening and went and got a few things at the grocery store..Sunday went to church and took Hanna to a b-day party in the afternoon.. it was at some stables and the kids got to ride horses. She had a great time and rode as much as they would let her. That night Rob cooked chicken on the grill as well as meals for this week, which will help me out a whole lot!
The baby's Orange County Choppers outfit came yesterday- it's really cute. Wouldn't be surprised if Rob wants me to bring that to the hospital to have him wear home. LOL

Days til baby!

Doctor's appt. today

Today the doctor measured me and said the baby at this point probably weighs 7 1/2 to 8 pounds.. she said at my appt. next Tuesday if I am dialated at all they may "help me along." I'm trying not to get my hopes up though.. I could go and not even be dialated at all.. we'll see...

Days til baby!

progress as of 4-7-05 Posted by Hello

Great mail today!!

WOW! Got two great packages from one of my stitching friends today- got lots of overdyed threads, fabric, groovy patterns, tuck pillows, a Stitching diary/organizer, and she sent things for the kids as well! I am in stash heaven!! Looking forward to a night of playing with threads and stitching, after my butter pecan ice cream.

OK so this little guy isn't eating ice cream but I thought he was cute. lol

Still here!

Just been busy and tired these past couple of days.. when it comes down to being on the computer or putting up my feet and stitching I choose the latter.
I did get some done on my flip-it last night, will post a pic later.

Only 12 more days til my due date, I hate to say it but I am getting impatient! I guess I was spoiled a bit since Hanna was almost 3 weeks early. And I go from excited to scared to worrying something will go wrong.. and then back to excited again.. ah the emotional rollercoaster of pregnancy!

Days til baby!

Monday, Monday

Not too bad of a Monday actually, as far as Mondays go..will start a new ornament today, I'm thinking maybe out of one of my British stitching mags, since I have yet to do any projects out of any of them..
Weekend was OK, did some work around the house on Saturday and got some R&R time in too.. went out for sushi that night.. YUMMMMM Sunday Hanna and I went to church, had a meeting afterwards..then came home for a minute, went to grab some lunch etc.. I took a nap later. Not too much exciting, but fairly relaxing.
I've been thinking the baby is going to make me wait til my due date, though I did feel some pressure in my belly today, felt more weighted down than usual. We'll see what happens..

Days til baby!

Progress on L*K Oct. flip-it as of 4-1-05 Posted by Hello

Confused again...

I have tried twice to post a pic of my flip-it progress to my blog and it's still not showing up!! I don't understand.
Haven't gotten too much stitching done today yet.. I worked on my MIL's t-shirt again but got sleepy so I took a catnap. Will work on it some more in a minute when I get off this computer. I should get alot done 'cause Rob is playing a game on the Gamecube so I won't be watching TV.
I gave in and bought some larger shoes tonight at Walmart, even though I don't have much longer to go. They were only about $9 and they were cute, may go get another pair once my feet are back to somewhat normal size. Oh well.. will try to post the pic again and then go stitch.

Days til baby day:

Counting down...

Only 18 more days til due date.. almost 17..I am feeling ok. My back has been hurting off and on all day, and have had some other aches and pains.. feet are still swollen, but overall not feeling too bad.
I got a wonderful surprise from my grandma today! She knitted a beautiful bonnet, sweater, and blanket set for the baby. It is soooooooo soft!! She also sent Hanna a gift which I appreciated so much. She sent her a little chalkboard with colored and white chalk and Hanna has been having a great time with it. :-)
I also ordered the baby an outfit from Orange County Choppers.. the price was right and dh really wanted it for him. It will be a nice surprise!

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
