I had been working on this off and on for a quite a while. It was what I worked on while waiting at appointments. All that was done was the frog. Sitting while waiting for Don to have his scan done on Friday I got he briefcase, clock, exit sign and the wording done. We waited along time at the hospital as you can guess. I am going to have this framed and hang it in my office. I think it is cute. I am waiting for Don to ask me to do one for his office. His ladies are usually out the door at 5 on the nose, LOL. I am back working on the 12 days scissor pattern and am doing day 7 now. I am taking them with me on my trip back home for the Christmas holiday. I will let you know how they come along. I will also try and update this over the holidays if I can get access to a computer. If not, Hope you all have a great holdiday and yes I am saying this.......MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! Love you guys!

This is a picture of my poor tree at my office. I am not having one at home this year since we are going to be gone. At my office though I figured I probably should.
My boyfriend is having surgery tomorrow so I won't be in my office at all probably. I know he is going to be fine, however he is freaking out. He has only once before had any kind of an operation and so he is uncomfortable. plus he has sleep apnea and is overweight so he is a little apprehensive about everything. I will let you know how that goes. Hope you have a great week.

Here is what I received from Karen for the August Color Exchange. It came all wrapped up in the green tissue paper underneath it. I love the stuff and as you can see in the background so does Charlie one of my cats. I couldn't get her to stay away and when I was trying to get pictures she kept laying in the middle of the stuff. Now what is there is some threads, a toothbrush holder that it just so happens I do need, a towel and aida cloth, a clipboard, a pin cushion with scissors and a frog sponge thingy, sorry don't know what it is called, I guess a body scrubber would be a good name,LOL. Also a card with a cat on it. Siamese cats happen to be my favorite kind of cat. I love it. I hope my partner loves her stuff as much as I do.

I got day 6 done. I think they are looking pretty good. I got it done on Sunday. the last couple of days have been nuts. Last night I started day 7 sitting in the ER with my daughter Gretchen. She fell and hurt her wrist. It may be broken. There is a bone in your wrist which is hard to tell if it is broken, the Dr said it could be up to 3 weeks before we can tell. When she gets back home to WV she will go to her regular Dr and they will x-ray it again. Hopefully it is just a severe sprain. It is splinted and in a sling to keep it elevated to keep the swelling down. Then I found out today someone got a hold of my debit card number and has been trying to use it for off the wall stuff. So my card is cancelled and I won't have a new one for about a week to 10 days. I guess this is just going to be the week from hell. I should have known something was coming when I had to leave work because of a severe migraine. It kind of went down hill from there. It is just crazy. I think I need a vacation. Well I guess i should get back to work now. I will post again in a day or so.
Friday, August 10, 2007
Well that is all for now. I will post again soon.

As you can see I finally got Day 4 finished. I just absolutely love the colors in these. I have started Day 5. I thought I was going to have to wait because I can't find the material I cut and prepared to do days 5 to 8 but I found a piece of material and cut and prepared it for stitching and was able to start. I am finding that these make me just want to keep stitching every chance I get.
On another note. I just talked to my mom and found out that a friend of the family and someone who we cared so much about. We grew up with his kids and he was just a very good man passed away yesterday. From what my mother told me he went to the hospital at 5 in the morning with a aortic aneurysm and didn't survive the surgery. This is heartbreaking. I just don't know what to say about this. I will think on this for awhile and see what I come up with.

Even though I was sick and from what I am told, extremely grumpy, this past weekend I was able to finish day 3. Don, Gretchen and me moved a chair that I could recline in and rest into my room where I do all my crafts. I stitched off and on Friday night and Saturday and got day 3 done. I was a lot further along than I thought so that helped. I also did just a bit on day 4 yesterday, I started feeling better. Thank God for antibiotics, lol. I feel a bit better today but not 100%. I can't believe how fast these are going. Day 4 is going to be even quicker I think. It seems like there may be less stitching to day 4. Kathy, thank you for the get well wish I appreciated it very much. Well I am supposed to be working so I should get back to work but I will keep you posted.

Don got back from his business trip. He brought me a mini New York New York statue. It is pretty neat. He also brought me a polo shirt with the logo on it. I really love them. I will post a photo of them when I take one. I haven't taken one of my progress yet because I just don't feel like it. I keep trying to lay down but I can't seem to be comfortable, so I figured I would post here and them try laying down again.
Well I think I am gonna try now so I will post more when I feel better, hopefully the meds will kick in soon and I will feel more like it. And on Monday I think I will thank Monica (one of Don's CSR's) for giving this to me.

Well as you can see I have been working on day 2. It is coming along nicely I think. These stitch up so quickly. I love them. I see the progress and don't get discouraged because it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. I am thinking that maybe I will try and put them into a quilt or something like that. We will see how that goes.
It has been so hot lately so I have been able to sit and stitch. Last night I sat outside on the back patio and and there was a slight breeze. It was nice to be able to do that. We are supposed to get thunderstorms for the next couple of days but I am not counting on it. It would be nice though. Well that is all for now. Can't wait for the finished product.

On another note yesterday was July 4th. It was pretty uneventful. It was strange having a day off in the middle of the week but on the other hand it makes the week seem shorter. We work today and tomorrow and are off for 2 days. I think I can deal with that.
We are supposed to have thunderstorms today. I hope so. The sky is getting dark so maybe. We quite often have them predicted especially at this time of the year but then don't get them. I just feel like it would be nice to clean up the air. We will see what happens. Hope you all had a good 4th of July. Will update again soon.

I was lucky enough to be able to stitch a bunch this weekend. As you can see I got a lot accomplished. I am really motivated on this. I really like the colors so maybe that is why. I am looking forward to getting going on day 2. These seem to stitch up quickly. No back stitching which I like. On these I don't think they would look as nice if there was back stitching.
I am trying to convince my daughter who is visiting to let me teach her to stitch. To give her something creative and constructive to do but I can't seem to get her interested. Wish I could but maybe she will keep seeing how much I love it and give in. We will see. We thought my other daughter was going to come for a visit before she leaves this summer for basic and AIT for the ARMY National Guard but doesn't look like that is going to happen. Oh well, she says she wants to spend Christmas with me so hopefully that will happen. I will keep my fingers crossed. Maybe I will be able to get the whole crew together for a change. I would love that.

My oldest daughter has been here for a couple of weeks. I think she is starting to get bored. She is here for the summer. She wants to get a job for the summer. I hope she does. Then of course she won't be so bored.
Well I haven't been doing much stitching lately. I can't seem to get motivated for some reason. I am trying to do the 12 Days of Christmas scissors designs and the person's name who designed them has just totally left my mind. I will have to check that out so I can give her proper credit. I think I am going to try and make myself sit down and stitch just a little everyday, then maybe I will just get it done. We will see.
We are supposed to have thunderstorms today. I was kind of hoping for one but hasn't happened yet. I remember at my grandparents house, part of their roof was metal. I love that sound of the rain hitting the metal roof. Its comforting some how.Well it is almost time for the Saturday sci-fi movie and my daughter and I watch it every Saturday night. I will post again soon.

Thursday I started reading a new book. It is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. It is very good so far. I believe it is autobiographical but she changes the names and things like that. I saw the movie, Sylvia, that is about her. It has Gweneth Paltrow in it as Sylvia Plath. That is how I got interested in reading this book. I think I will find out more about her and read more of her works if I can find them. I think that she was a very tortured soul. What a shame to live and feel like she did and to be such an excellent writer, at least in my opinion. I had been reading the Harry Potter series but read 3 in a row and had to stop but once I get done with this book I think I will finish the fourth book.
I started a new cross stitch project it is a one colored heart. While I am on my daughters graduation ceremony trip I am going to start a series that is scissors. It is the 12 days of Christmas. I am excited to get started on them but I am waiting until I am on my trip.
Well there isn't much more right now so I will go. I will be back soon.

Okay, today is 05/13/2007. I edited this post and took something out because I felt I really didn't need it here. If you read the original post and were offended I apologize. I was a little angry and have since decided I didn't really need that in here. Thanks for reading my blog.

It is nice weather so everything is growing and allergies galore. Don has been in PA for almost a week and I have been home alone. Kind of peaceful but lonely too. I am going to cut some pieces out to start work on another quilt. I have two patterns and am having trouble deciding. I am also getting ready to start working on the Monopoly Board. A friend of mine lent me her pattern for it so I need to get hot on that.
I can't believe it is almost the end of April already. On Tuesday I have jury duty. Oh fun. The last time I went I got picked. Hopefully I won't get picked this time. I don't have anyone to cover my office. It was an interesting experience that is for sure. With about 750,000 people give or take here I can't believe I get sent a letter every year. Its crazy. Oh well. I will let you know what happens.
Well I will go for now. I think the cat is messing with the birds and the other cat. Fuzzball is hissing that only means Charlie is messing with her. Gotta get the spray bottle! Talk to you soon.

My daughter was here for spring break. it was nice. We didn't do a whole lot but it was pretty good anyway. She said she enjoyed it and I know I did. It was nice. My son was in GA on leave from Iraq for about 2 weeks. he called me once and it was good to hear his voice. He said he is going to try and come out here for a bit when he gets back. I hope it works out. My other daughter is going to go into the ARMY National Guard. I am proud of all 3 of my kids. I find it hard to believe that they are adults now. Its crazy.
I finally was able to take my quilting class and it was great. I am going to take another one in June or atleast I hope to. I guess we will see. Hope you all are doing good and will be back soon.
Sunday, February 04, 2007
I don't know where to start. My son is in Iraq. I have talked to him a couple of times and he is doing pretty good. I thank God for that. My oldest daughter is still in college and doing well and my youngest is still in school and doing pretty good. I am very proud of all three of my children.
Business is slow but that is ok. I am not minding that as much as I used to. Winter is here. We got snow a week or so ago. At the time and it was January, we had more snow than my mother and children in their respective states, (NY and WV). It didn't stay long but it got cold here for a bit and now it is just cold where they are at. Thats too bad but it is winter but spring will be here soon and all the spring time yuck, like allergies and such. Not looking forward to that. The migraine study I am in is going well. I am having so many less migraines. Thank you, Lord. In the last month I have had 3. Four months ago it was like 15 or 16 in a month. I have started a quilting class. Most of you know I have for a long time wanted to learn to quilt, even tried it once years ago and that didn't work out too well. I have had to classes and am loving it. I have even tried the blocks we learned in class on my own to make sure I could do it without the teacher being there. I can and am so excited about this. I will let you all know how that goes.
Other than that not much else things are calming down I hope. I am trying to keep up with all of this better this year. Lets see how I do. If I slack off someone let me know so I can keep you guys up to date on stuff.
