I just want to thank the ladies who have commented on my last post. He isn't my DH Kathy, he's my "boyfriend". We've been together almost 2 years. I'll be fine; I miss him, I don't know if it's him specifically or just the companionship? I'm figuring all that out now. I appriciate all you ladies and your sweet comments; they help me a LOT.
Back to stitching on Frosty. I have to get it done. I want to do the Gingerbread couple and the stack of gingerbread men in the 2010 Just Cross Stitch mag. Hope everyone is getting lots of stitching done. Hugs, Shar

Those of you that have been following my blog know me and Kenny have had our problems; he went back to Oregon in Sept to take care of some personal business; my DD and GD moved in with me while my SIL is away; he joined the Army and was at basic training and is at AIT training now til prob March. Before Kenny went back he knew that they were going to stay w/me til then. He finished what he had to do and wanted to come back early; and I told him he has to wait; I have a small 1 bedroom house and there isn't room. The crib in in the dining room.
Well, to keep things short; we had it out last night, because I caught him a yet another lie and I've had enough; I don't trust him is what it all boils down to and I'm too old to "settle" you know? I'll be 50 in Feb. Life is too short to deal w/lies and someone who won't hold a job. I can't tell you to amount of stress that's off my shoulders w/Ashley here paying 1/2 the bills. I've been able to buy myself a little stash now and then; or go shopping for myself if I need new panties or something. So I'm a single lady yet again; I cried, it hurt because I do love him; he made me laugh a lot and we had a lot of fun; plus he's sexy. LOL and 5 years younger than me.
I'll be okay; I just wanted to share what's going on in my life w/my blog buddies. I enjoy reading all your blogs and seeing all the beautiful projects you all make; I've gotten so many ideas from you all on finishing my stitching; before I started blogging I just thought you could "frame" stitching. LOL I have been stitching the Frosty ornament for myself; I'm almost done. I'll post a picture; sorry it's a poor one I used my webcam. I don't know why the material looks like I spilled something on it in this picture, it doesn't look like that. Of course here's another picture of my little darling; she keeps grandma happy now. Hope everyone is having a better day than me. I did win a give a way!! I'll share that info w/you tomorrow. I'm so excited. It's just what I need.

Hi, hope everyone is having a great holiday so far. I went shopping after work and started buying things for the kids stockings. I make GREAT stockings. :) I think the girls are going to love theirs this year. I finally finished the 3 ornaments for exchanges; I have recieved 2 so far. I am a few days late mailing them. They turned out really cute; I still have to work on my "finishing" I"m kind of new to it; I'll get better.
This is my dining room and my little tree I keep up all year; I just change it every month; I decorate it for each holiday. I saw it last summer at a yard sale for $5; I came home and told Kenny about it; and after a while I told him lets go back; I have to have that tree and he offered the lady $3 for it and she took it. I love it. And of course a few new pictures of my darling granddaughter; Scarlett. I can't believe she's 4 months old. Where is the time going? Her daddy comes home on Saturday, Ashely is counting the hours. :)
I can't believe I have 45 followers. When I get to 50 I'm going to have a Give a way.. :) I'm starting to look for "goodies" to give away.

I have some of them kitted up and others I'm waiting on the threads; I just placed a order w/123 Cross Stitch; I love that site; it's probabley my favorite on-line shop; I've found they ship fastest.
I have to "finish" 3 ornaments today and get in the mail tomorrow; I'm going now to get my hair cut then home to colour it; the grey hairs are taking over. LOL Me and Ashley are going to both get hair cuts and I'm going to colour both our heads. We have to get hair cuts in "shifts"; one will stay home w/Scarlett while the other one goes. It's just easier that way. Sounds fun huh?? LOL I also want to stitch for myself today; haven't done that for a while. I also have 2 RR's I need to get stitched up and sent out this week. I'll be busy.
