Have you ever...

Got so into stitching that you surprised yourself with how many completed pieces you've done. I've done 6 LK pieces over the past 3 weeks, plus finished a SB stocking. I have my piece done for my LK partner, love it so much now I need to make a duplicate for myself!
Won't get much stitching done this week, my step daughters are coming in from college Wed afternoon, then I have to take my two kids on a road trip to meet up with their dad in Pgh, so I'll lose 6 hours there, thank heavens my mother in law is coming in on Wed to do the cooking, yeah! she is an awesome cook, they are just using our home since space is a issue at her home.
Took a drive up to my favorite store to drop off the stocking and ended up spending $40, on a new pattern, buttons, overdyed and linen, plus a few end cut pieces in her scrap bin that always work out awesome for the little projects. I think a good word to describe me is encouragable, lol.
Oh yes, also made a stop at JoAnn's today to buy some more seasonal ribbon and a skein of floss.
Hope everyone is having a great turkey week!
House is smelling awesome, daughter just made pizzells for a class project, now i'm thinking I'll have to make a batch tomorrow, was going to make M&M cookies today but well, stitching got the best of me and now I"m about to run out the door with my son for his high school sports banquet, DH is down at work at a charity basketball game (he works over an hour away). Busy busy, everyone stay safe and keep smiling!

still here

dear friends,
well I have been busy stitching all kind of ornaments by Lizzie Kate, I want the one I send to my assigned LK exchange to be just perfect. Was just talking to my 15 yo son, he is wearing a undershirt with black spots all over it. Seems he forgot to empty his pants pocket of a pen and it went through the washer and yes the dryer, he learned how to scrub ink out of a dryer, easy with a magic eraser but his clothes...well, he learned a lesson...:)
Ok, back to stitching, lots of Lizzie Kate stuff and just finishing up a SB stocking, Brett's Stocking, tomorrow I will put the embelishments on and take it up to the store for the lady I stitched it for. I would have put them on earlier this week, but we are having one of those weeks, full moon and all so with some ripping out and restiching, I figured the embelishments could wait until I got my head on strait.
Hope everyone is stitching with smiles on their face.

Lizzie Kate crazy

Well, I've been under the weather with the change of season cold so I'm having a cup of tea and working on my exchange for Lizzie Kate, I love the way it's working up and thinking I'll make one up for me to. I also finished "Dear Santa, we've got cookies" and just got my hand on "Santa wants to know" thinking I'll make that into a cube.
My spreadsheet has over 600 patterns listed and I'm still got a lot more to go. Oh the money I've spent over the years, funny how my tastes have changed.
Have to run my daugter to Northern Kentucky Univ to see if she is interested in participating in their Youth Orchestra, need to get out money's worth out of her bassoon. She is bored at the high school, just in the band but nothing challenging. Last night it was my son's soccer try outs, he belongs in a u-16 team, which the club doesn't have so he's been playing up a year and he just turned 15, so his team is a u-17 but now the u-18 team wants him but he wants to stick with his team from last spring, we love the kids and the coach so all is well. I am so happy he is finsihed with football and is focusing on soccer again. Gotta love the high school years....
Hoping everyone has a fabulous weekend. I'm just parousing looking at some of the blogs I like to follow....
