Cleopatra after week 2


Here is Cleopatra after stitching on here for another two weeks. There really isn't anything to show right now, but I am moving right along. I have put in 2100 stitches in her over the past two weeks. I am very impressed with myself. This is 45 pages long. I started from the bottom this time. I have never done that lol. There is a first time for everything.


It was a good Christmas! It wasn't like I planned but, the kids had a good one. Skylar got Elmos. He was thrilled with them. Then he got a race track. He had a pretty good Christmas. Miranda and Justin had a good one also. They both got some winter coats which they needed, and shirts and other stuff. Ariel and I got gift cards. I got a gift card to Barnes and Noble. So I went in and got a new book. All in all we had a good Christmas!

Other stuff

Just wanted everyone to know. Internet may be down for a while, just until I get a job. I am hoping that it doesn't, I am hoping they will be nice and leave it on until I can get a job! But I promise I will keep in touch. I won't be gone long if they disconnect it

My Wipocalypse 2012 list

Well I definitely think I am crazy! I have entered a challenge. So I am going to sit here and try to list what I want to stitch and finish. So here goes nothing.

  1. All Hallows Eve (HAED)
  2. Victory Garden by Paula Vaughn
  3. Patchwork Village by Linda Myers
  4. Fly Butterfly (HAED)
  5. Cleopatra Queen of Egypt (HAED)
I think that is all I am going to try and do for now. I am just to stretched to try and add anything else to it. I would never get anything done.

Stitching notes for the week


This is my HAED for my oldest daughter. It is All Hallows Eve I am stitching it on 14 count aida. I screwed up when I first started it and then I realized the fabric was turned the wrong way! It is coming along nicely. I usually do rotation and work on projects for one week, but I think I am going to keep working on this until I get frustrated or tired of it. I know I have all these other I need to do lol.
On a very nice note. I received a RAK today from a friend on facebook, I knew she was sending it, just didn't know when she was going to send it lol. She sent me some very nice patterns. I am anxious to start some of them. But I have 4 I need to finish. So I will be a good girl and wait. I also received another Rak from a friend and it was Cleopatra it is also a HAED. In my Rak gift that I received, I received fabric for it. So as you can see I really want to start something from my gift box.

Other news

Not really much on the home front. I still haven't put my tree up yet. I know I am putting it off, but I just haven't really felt like it and that is unusual for me. I usually have it up the day after Christmas. My mother is going to get the presents for the kids for me, which is a big help. Thank goodness they haven't asked for anything really big. I think the only major big thing I wanted was for the baby. So I think that is about it.

I am still searching for a job, not had much luck, but I am not giving up. I have an interview next week, with Staples. So I am keeping my fingers crossed. That will help if so much.

Have a great stitching week!

My stitching updates and woes for the week

 Stitching news!

Well another week has passed and I started yet another project.  I am really insane!  It is called Patchwork Village by Linda Myers.  I was given this chart a long time ago, by another stitcher.  It is coming along nicely.  I stitched on it yesterday all day, off and on while watching Harry Potter.  I now have 4 starts in rotation.  I need to get these done, before I add something else!

Other news!

Well I may have a job!  Yippee!  I am hoping to hear from someone soon!  I was nervous about going in and talking with them, but I think I did okay.   So keep your fingers crossed for me!

The kids are driving me bonkers about putting up the tree, I haven't even put it up yet!  Truthfully I wasn't really in the mood, because I didn't know if I was going to be able to keep furniture or not, but thankfully I am.  So it looks like I will be putting the tree up today or this weekend.  It really depends.   

Exciting news!

My daughter's boyfriend is going to propose to her on Christmas Day!  She doesn't know it, but he told me.  I am so happy for them.  So as soon as that happens I will post pics and all that.
