Yucky Winter Day

but I'm stitching away...Water is coming along nicely, just a little slow, dealing with lots of pinks/reds, but it is pretty so far. I started in the lower right corner, so the page is only approxiately 60x30, but its almost done. This slot I'll be doing the 3 bottom pages of 60x30. I'm almost 1/2 way thru the first page and will hopefully get well into the second page, if not finish it this weekend.

Its a great weekend for stitching, its cold as anything out, snow and ice, so its nice to be snuggled up in the house, just stitching away.

Neglected the blog again...but had a good reason...

there she is...Golden Goddess...I can't believe how much I love her...and she really is a fast stitch. Lana and I started this slot on Sunday, Feb. 5 and I finished the first page on Tuesday, Feb. 14. Not bad (if I do say so myself!)! And I had an icky cold in there and didn't stitch for 2 nights and had a chat with LeeAnne Seed (one of my favorites) so actually didn't stitch for 3 nights.

Now we've started Water and let me tell you, the shading of the pinks in the lower left corner is amazing! I don't know how Michele does it, but it is absolutely incredible. We'll be doing a page of this and then on to our Fenechs, and boy is Small Things SCREAMING!!!! Well, she'll get a bunch of time in on her shortly.

Valentines Day was Tuesday and Honey got me a plant and a cute little card, but he was in the dog house for a bit. I came home, busted my rump making his favorite dinner and he was over an hour late and didn't call!!! Annoy me why don't you Honey. But its a really pretty plant, and a funny card. He's even taking my car to get the emissions done tomorrow while I'm at work, so I guess he's allowed out of the dog house (for now). Our anniversary is in 2 weeks, 6 years already, I can't figure out where the time went. We've been together for almost 11 years already! Wow!!!

Had a cold last week and boy do I hate being sick! But Lana listened to me whine and I got some wonderful cards from the lovely ladies of the board (THANKS GUYS!). Luckily I got over it pretty quick, but I did miss the release of Water, but the bestest stitching buddy in the world made up for it by sending it to me the next day, made up for the germies and all.

Well thats about it, my life is pretty boring as usual, but thats just the way I like it. Hopefully, my wonderful blog won't be neglected so long again...then you won't have such a long rambling blog to read....

Well first, Scrumpy is on the mend, his ears are still pretty infected, but they are slowly getting better, thanks for the good thoughts everyone and thanks for the e-card JM, great artwork as always!

It wasn't the best stitchy week, was just a bit off. But, the stitchy bug is back and I've got a brand new start. I'm starting Lusk's Golden Goddess today, just finished the gridding and loaded it on the q-snaps. I'll have an update shortly (I'm sure).

As you can see, I did get a bit done on Iris (sorry about the blurry pic, too lazy to take another). She's coming along nicely. I was going to start Butterfly Chick (well I actually did start her), but just was not getting into it. I sometimes have a hard time working on the same artist back to back. I need to stir it up a bit and the Lusk is a definate deviation from my normal. The colors are not like these on anything else I'm working on. I thought it would be a nice change.

Lana and I have once again tossed up the rotation, here is the latest.....
  1. Tso - 2 pages (for me Reone)
  2. Seed - 1 page (for me Iris and Butterfly)
  3. Screamer (for me Lusk's Golden Goddess)
  4. Fenech (for me Small Things)
  5. Screamer (will be Rosario's Water when it comes out)
  6. Chatelaine's Taj Mahal
  7. UFO (for me I think it will be When Paris Sizzles from Dimple Designs)

Other than this, my life is relatively boring just like I like it. Today is Superbowl Sunday and dh and I are staying home and watching the game. I made some brownies (yummy, yummy, yummy) this morning for snacks and I'll make up some dinner later. Its cold as the dickens out today, was only 28 degrees (F) when I got up this morning, my sinuses are hating this cold! More snow is predicted and I'm starting to wonder if we are going to get slammed during February since we've had such a mild winter so far.

Toodles till later....hope everyone is having a great stitching weekend!
