A Hug

I found a charm I thought would fit this. I like this one a little better the the metal one. I am going to try and make this into a door knob hanger. I think that this is perfect for something like that. I think that it did turn out pretty good. I have another small Lizzie Kate chart that I am going to start. It should be another quick stitch like this one was.
I am sort of getting my stitching stuff a bit organized. I am finding the stuff I need a bit quicker than before, LOL. Now if I could only get the rest organized even a little.
I promised to get this posted and I did so I am gonna sign off for now but I will be back soon.

Lots going on

I have another finish. It is a Lizzie Kate chart. A Hug Will Do. I just have to put the charm on it. I don't like the one I have here so I am going to get a different one. I was going to go today and get it but then decided that I was going to just hang at home. I will go tomorrow and then put it on and take a picture. Yesterday I just sat down and stitched all afternoon and finished it. It isn't a big one but I love the colors and it was fun. I am not sure what I am going to do with it but am thinking that I may back it lightly stuff it add a ribbon and make it into a door hanger.
I found out last week that my son and his wife are having a boy. Yay!! I am excited and on the 6th of February we will hopefully find out what my daughter is having. I am so excited.
I talked to my mom yesterday and it has been so cold there. Her pipes froze, my brothers pipes froze and on his they couldn't find where and so he had no water for like 3 days and he called my mom yesterday morning and said I found out where the pipe was frozen, the water meter burst this morning. I tried to call her earlier but didn't get an answer so I am not sure how that all worked out yet. I will try again later and see. I hope it is all ok now.
I feel so good about finishing that project yesterday. I had been having a hard time getting motivated for some reason. I read in a blog that I follow about dying fabric. I think I want to try doing that.
Today I worked half a day. I didn't really want to go in but I had someone that was supposed to come in this morning. Of course they didn't show and it was so dead in my office I just said hell I am going home. My phone did not ring one time from 9 am to noon when I left. I got some stuff caught up but still talk about boring LOL. I bet it will be crazy tomorrow.
Today I got 2 telemarketing calls on my cell phone. I hate that. I don't answer my phone if I don't recognize the number. I let them leave a voicemail and then I will return the call. I do that because I hate telemarketing calls as much as the next one and usually strange area codes are just that. Sure enough that is what they were. I googled the numbers and it was no surprise that that is what they were.
It has been cold here. Not as cold as back east where all my family is but cold for here. In the mid 20's at night. When I go out and get the paper in the morning I have to wear my coat. A lot of the mornings lately too there is frost on the cars enough so that if I was leaving then I would have to scrape the window. I live in the desert. Oh well that's life I guess.
Well I will sign off for now. I have a Tupperware conference call with my "unit" in a while so I think I am going to get comfortable. I am really excited this month because I love the modular mates and they are on sale up to 50% off and some really great sets. I am going to put an order in for myself. I have been transforming so to say my pantry and it is so nice to be able to find what I want in there. If any of you want anything just let me know. Send me a message and I will get you info. With all the new stuff and updated colors and stuff they are bringing back I am just excited.
Well I am off to get comfy. Thanks for taking some time out and reading what I have to say I appreciate it lots. Love you guys!

The Weekend

Thank goodness it is Friday. This has been a week. I have some stuff to do this weekend, you know the usual stuff that you don't get to get done during the week or even avoid till the weekend. I am going to finish the project I am working on. I really want to get it done. I have been trying and trying to get to it but I have so much to do.
I did talk to my mom yesterday and it is unbelievable the difference when I talk to her. She is doing alot better and sounds great. Maybe now I can relax and maybe get it done. I have my stitching sitting out where I can just grab it quick and even do a little at a time. I know this is short but I didn't want to wait too long before I put anything else down. I hope you all are well and have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

New Year

It is the New Year. I don't make resolutions because I can never keep them. I try but hey. I almost have my first finish for the new year. It will be nice to get something done. I don't know how some of you all get so much stitching done. I can never seem to get things going.
It was very cold here today. Winter is here. I also had federal jury duty. Oh fun and since I didn't get pick for a court case today I am still on call, for the rest of the month. With federal jury duty you don't just go one day and your done, if you don't get picked you have it for 30 days. They told us today that we would have to go back atleast once more. I had to be there at 7:30 this morning and it was in the low 30's. It has been awhile since I had to be out in cold like that here atleast. We had it last month when we were back east but here it isn't the usual. We had a winter weather advisory all morning today and it looks like we might get another one. I did take my stitching with me but couldn't really get anything done on it. For such a small project I can't seem to get it done, lol but I will! Well I have a Tupperware meeting in just a bit so I have to sign off for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all are well. Talk to you soon.
