Well Bill has 5 games to Ump today. This means Jeremy, and I are on our own. We will probably go to the pool, and have some fun. I guess we'll get grocieries tomorrow. Oh well.

~Stitching News~
Everything is set up on STNA (Stitcing The Night Away) for both the Stitching Service, along with the Bobbin Winding Service. Here's hoping it takes off. I've also offered to finish a few ornaments for Loretta from STNA. If she likes them then I'll let her add my name on the site for finishing purposes. Finishing I'll only accept money which will be a novel idea. As right now for everything else I do I'll barter/trade which really is a good way to keep in stash I find. I figure that finishing will actually cost me out of pocket so payment in money would be good. I'm almost finished TW's Beginner WW Ornament, and am surprised that the placement of the stitches was a little more difficult than I thought it would be. I'm very happy with how it is looking though.

Have a good weekend all!

Last night was nice Bill (my husband) had to Ump a Softball game. He's a professional Softball Umpier during the summer. Jeremy (son), and I had dinner then went outside to enjoy the warm evening. Played with the neighbour children, and had a blast. When it was time to go in Jeremy was not very I mean who wants to come inside when it's a nice evening, but bed time is bed time. I'm still catching up from being out for like 3 days this past week when my brother was visiting. So I didn't exercise this morning, but instead slept in. I hope to get back on track with my exercise.

Last night I worked on TW (Teresa Wentzler) Beginner WW Ornament. I was hoping to have it finished last night, but alas I didn't. I'm stitching it on Navy Lugana with The Lavenders (hand dyed silk floss) from The Floss Gather which is gorgeous. I'm really happy with how it is looking. This weekend is Lady of Shallot Stitch Along so I need to make sure to work on her, and get some stitches done on my UFO RR. Busy weekend!

July 15 The First

I thought I'd give this a shot. I'm new to the blog scene. I do understand it is like a journal.

Well I promised this will be a little about me so here it goes. I'm 34 years old, married for almost 7 years I have one DS who will be 4 in September. Where does the time fly?

My hobbies include reading, internet, but my passion is cross stitch. I mostly do complex designs Teresa Wentzler, L&L for example. I get my happy dances by doing Model Stitching. I make sure those projects are smaller, and simplier.

I've also launched a weight loss plan, and am down 25.4 lbs (go me). I'm very happy with myself. I have about another 29 lbs to go before I reach my goal weight, but at least now I know it is doable, and I have a plan.

Stitchers Question of the Week How do you choose a project? What “calls” to you the most?

~ I select my project or it's probably more like they select I pick something where it has to move me, and colour has a lot of do with it. I have to love the over all design, plus I have to love the colours used. I'll know when the design has "got" me as I feel drawn to it even if it is to just look at it. Strange I know.

Feel free to leave me your comments.
