Sunday stitching update

Floss Organization Well I managed to get some of the floss organized and in photo box. I still have another container full and bags to organize. It took me a while, but I did get it started. I am rather pleased with the photo boxes and going to keep using them.
Stitching Kittens is done for the week. This is what I have done this week. It is coming along. I am rather pleased with it so far. The browns and all that started running together, so I decided to rotate out this week. I needed a break from it this week.
This is what I have started on this week. It is a HAED called Fly Butterfly. It is a fairy that I am stitching for my 14 year old daughter. She like it because of all the purple in it. Believe me there is a lot of purple in it. But that is okay I rather like it. It is a freebie from their site. I am also doing this as a SAL on HAED blog site. I am inspired by some of the sttiching on there, and am going to work on this as much as I can this week. It is supposed to be hot, so I am not moving from my nice cool apartment.
Other stuff
This week has been kind of long. I am not sure why. But it has. Right now I am working on getting apartment the way I want it and that is a long drawn out process. But it is moving slowly. The kids have really helped a lot, and thank goodness they have.
Skylar said Hey dude last night. It was so cute. Ariel my oldest was flipping out it was just to cute. Miranda has been reading alot, Justin well he is a boy so he is bored. lol what boy isn't. He doesn't want to read or anything like that, he wants to be on the computer. I told him that he was going to find other things to do until we go to the beach this week. He is just tired of being cooped up, and I very much understand.

Stitching update


Well I tried to organize these in order and didn't quite get them that way. I wanted to have them on the side so I could describe them, but.....
Anyway I started organizing stitching stash and things. I am trying to get UFOS together for a group I am a member of on yahoo. So I went into my bedroom where I keep my UFOS and my stash, and well I kind of wanted to post some of these and I didn't.; Please excuse the mess. I found patterns and UFOS everywhere. lol I mean that literally. As you can see from some of the pictures. I found some of my beads that I have stored in plastic containers, but thanks to Meari, I am going to go to Dollar Tree and find the pill cases that she used. Thanks Meari :)))) One of the pictures, please don't pass out. It is my closet and yes that is laundry. Our washing machines are broken in the building, and I couldn't get into my closet to get to the rest of my stash. I felt horrible after I saw that picture. I wanted to cry. bI have called the management here in apartment complex and they tell me that the company had to order new machines, that was a month ago. I have tried to go to parents house, but I have touch laundry for them lol. SO I am off to the laundry mat when i get paid. It really bites. Good thing is that Skylar's father is washing some of the clothes for me.
I am getting off topic here. Today I did organize some of my floss into the photo box that I have. That is finished. I am going to get another one next week to put rest of floss in it. I didn't realize how much floss I have. It is amazing.

New Toy for Me

I bought myself the Nook. I love it, I am still getting used to reading from it instead of a book. But I still have books that I need to read, but I really like this one. I can put it in my purse and take it with me. It is so cool. I am still learning to use it, but I really like it alot. Now my daughter Miranda wants one. I think that is great. I know she likes to read. So I think that is something I am going to get her for Christmas. She goes in her room and reads all day long, it is just cool.

Stitching progress

Kittens is looking good. As you can see from the picture. I backstitch as I go, and the kitten popped right out at me. I was so pleased with it. I stitched about 600 stitches today. I can't believe it lol. I wanted to stitch 1,000 but I know that isn't going to happen with the kids getting stir crazy. But I am rather please with my progress so far.

Stitching update a day early

Stitching update
This is what I have done so far on Kittens. I am not stopping it this week. I am enjoying this to much. So I am going to keep stitching it for another week. I am excited. I can see one of the kittens now. I can't wait to get to the other ones. I am loving this. I did have to frog a couple of stitches, but other than that so far I am counting it right. I think this is the first one I haven't had to fudge. I am so proud of myself.

My daughter and her best friend (my adopted) daughter

This is a picture of my oldest and her best friend Sonya. She is like my other daughter. They look almost alike and it isn't even funny. She gets mistaken for being my daughter. We laugh and think that it is neat.
Last but not least my new furniture

This is my new furniture we just bought. The recliner is mine lol as you can see I have already claimed it. I told the kids not to even think about sitting in it as it is my stitching chair. The sofa is all theirs. As you can see Skylar has already claimed the couch. Lol. I finally have my living room starting to look the way I want it to and the way it used to look. I am so excited. lol. Now on to the next room which is Justin and Miranda's room.

I know two days in a row lol

These pictures are of two of my children Ariel and Skylar. He is a mess, he loves to have his picture taken. He is the biggest ham when it comes to having his picture taken. Ariel is just the same way. You would think that now that she is 18 she wouldn't be that way, but she just loves to have her picture taken also.

I don't get to post a whole lot about me and the kids, but I decided today was a good day as any.

We ran errands today, and got diapers and things we needed around the house. I bought a Nook today from Barnes and NOble, and I am loving it. I am still trying to get used to it, since I am used to reading regular books, not used to holding a little IPAD looking thing, but I am getting used to trying it out. It is rather different. But I do like it.

I dyed my hair today and I am now blonde. I think lol. My daughter Miranda says that I am but who knows lol. They are already driving me crazy and it is only second day of summer vacation. I could just scream. But I am trying to deal lol. I am so glad I have stitching to keep me calm.

Speaking of which, I did stitch 100 stitiches this morning on Kittens, and it is looking good. I will have a picture when I do update on Friday. Well off to get the kids in bed, and get some stitching done.

I used to have the progress percentage bars that I could keep track but don't have them anymore. I really liked using them. It is coming along. I am not fudging this. I am doing pretty good keeping track of my stitches, and so far so good;.

Stitching update

First I decided to start a new blog. This one is for stitching and life, the other one I think I am going to use for reading. It will be hard to keep track but that is okay.

Well here is a weekly picture of my afghan. The birdhouse is coming along nicely. I am excited at how it is coming along and turning out. I was a little worried because I had to sub some colors that I didn't have and I was rather pleased with the turn out. I don't like changing colors to much but this time I am impressed.

Now I am on to stitch my next one in rotation.

Stitching update/new blog

Well this is a new blog for stitching, for some reason I can't post to the other one. I will definitely post pics to this one of all stitching.
