I can't wait any longer, I must stitch this! :D I just got on www.stitchingbitsandbobs.com and ordered my Weeks Dye Works floss for it, they are only $1.50/skein vs. the $2.00, so I couldn't resist of course ;) I ordered some other pretty ones too while I was at it. I got a few other charts too, some for exchanges and gifts so I can't tell you what :( But I will eventually right?
I am 1/2 way done with an exchange, it is looking so nice, I have been enjoying working on it.

I wanted to say thank you for your kind comments you have been leaving me! I have really enjoyed doing this blog. I am working on a exchange right now, so I don't have anything to show you today :) I love how it is turning out!
Have a great evening, and enjoy it!

I found some PERFECT charts for upcoming exchanges. I am so excited to stitch these in the next few months for people. These exchanges are great, I am stitching things I would not regularly do, and have really begun to like.
I found out my sewing machine can be repaired in a matter of days… so it’s just going to have to get to the shop… in a matter of days ^_^ I think I can get it there this weekend.
My brother and his wife come on Thursday, and stay for a few days, then it’s Christmas! I even get a 5 day weekend. I am very excited about it, I can relax and enjoy this fun time.

I had a great time last night with my neighbor. We made jewelry! She had quite a large assortment to choose from. This was one of the sets I made, isn’t it pretty? We are going to Joann’s tonight to look at their beads. Like I need another hobby. I worked on my Mermaids a tiny bit, got more beading done, it’s kind of a pink bead that I’ve been doing, it’s gone down to her tail now. Can you see it? I scanned this picture, and it washed it out quite a bit. It sure looks pretty. I started a Shepherd’s Bush needleroll called Beehive as well. Not much progress, I should get more done on it tonight. That is… if I am not making more jewelry!

I haven’t touched my mom’s quilt for awhile, and I miss sewing! I need to sew some more I think. I love my cross stitching, but sewing needs to be done too. I can’t make up my mind! :D

Do you guys do a full X through the bead, or just a ½ X? I’ve been doing a full X to make the bead straight… just curious.
We got our Christmas lights up outside on our house, they are so pretty. I love this season, it’s just so welcoming. Tomorrow night I am hosting a baby shower, so no stitching again for me *pouts*
By the way my Christmas dinner for the church turned out so nice, it went very smoothly and everyone enjoyed themselves. What a relief! It was worth all of that work to make so many people have a memorable night.

I’ve been so bad, I went and enhanced the stash AGAIN, like I really needed too! I got online at Stitches N Things, they have a lot of charts at 50% off, so I picked up about 5 of them that I couldn’t say no to. At least they were on clearance right?? ;) Here are 3 of the 5, I can’t find one of the pics… that’s alright.
I found a Shepherd’s Bush EZBoard, and they sent me all of the Shepherd’s Bush freebies! I love it. I have been searching for some of them for quite awhile, so they sure are kind to do that for me. I can’t wait to do some of them.
I haven’t stitched at all this week, I am having withdrawls, and it made me buy more stuff :D LOL! Anyway, I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments, you guys are great! I love this blogging stuff… I am addicted now. I’ve updated my Wish List, and my “Upcoming Projects List” as well, and added a birthday ticker thing. I now need to figure out how to change the background stuff.
More Mermaids next week, I am anxious to get them done. I bid on a Z-Lap Stand from K’s Creations on Ebay, I’ll find out tonight if I win. I need a scroll frame now, as my wrists are giving me pain. I am 26, I thought I was invincible! Apparently not :P I need to find the scroll frame for it if I do win. I do mostly small projects anyway, so nothing too big. My Mermaids and Four Seasons are my huge ones, and that is as big as they get, and not very often do I do them.

Also this weekend we got our tree!!! I am really happy with it. First off, we've NEVER had one this big, and so that made it fun, and secondly, I actually had enough ornaments to cover it up :) Oh! I just realized I have two I stitched that I need to add :D Yay! This tree is 11 feet tall, isn't it pretty?
We had to move one of our couches out of the room, and rearrange the whole living room to make it fit. That is okay, it is worth it :)
