New Project

Well I am beginning a new project. I have done a couple of small really quick things but this one is a big one for me anyway. I finally got all the stuff together to do it, YAY!! I am starting the Monopoly Board. With the millions of skeins of floss I actually had to pick a couple more up. LOL I am excited and I have a fan club to keep me going. A couple of friends at another friends office are going crazy for me to get it going and getting it done. They can't believe that there is actually a pattern for something like that. I get such a kick out of Liz and Claudia. I am going to do it on 14 count aida instead of 18 because I can't seem to find 18 in the size I need so it will be a bit bigger than if I did have the right material but that's ok I don't mind about that besides if I special order it I may not ever get it started. I will definitely post pictures as I get it going cuz this is a big one and I am excited about it. I am also getting serious about the baby quilts. I have been going and going over the material and stuff so I just need to get the courage and not worry that they might not be good enough or come out good enough and get them done. I am gonna be a grandma soon, YAY!! My son is going to Afghanistan in August so that really sucks. Plus he will have a 2 month old when he leaves. That is defiantly upsetting but that is just part of ARMY life which I do know well I have been dealing with it for almost 30 years in one way or another but when it is your child it is different for sure. Well I have a couple of things I need to get done. I guess I can't keep putting them off so I will go get them done. Thanks for stopping by and I will keep you guys updated.

It is the beginning of a new month. I am ready for this month. I am planning on getting some good stitching done. Lately I have been battling migraines. I am not sure why I am having so many lately other than maybe stress but I am so I am hoping that the stitching will relax me and help me keep them away. I am so far behind on everything and one day I might actually get caught up. Of course I do have a poster in my office that says--God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things and right now I am so far behind I will never die. That is what it feels like but hey I love my job! LOL I am looking at a couple of things to stitch and haven't picked one yet so I may just start more than 1. I do love to start its the finishing I have the trouble with, lol. We are having some great sales with Tupperware, one of the ones that they haven't done before is buy $25.00 in Tupperware and get $16.00 in gifts and another one is buy $125.00 and get 2 gifts and $25.00 in free Tupperware of your choice. They have not done that before. Its great. You can check some of this stuff out if you want at or you can email me or message me here. I am excited about the great stuff going on. Well I had better sign off for now I have to do some paperwork for the office and I have been putting off since I got home. Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are well. I will let you know what I have started stitching as soon as I do.
