Day 1 of the Crazy Challenge

This is my first start of the New Year. I wish I had more time to stitch on it tonight; it's really a fun stitch. I'm making this for my mom; I'm going to put my Grandma's (mom's mom) initials and year she was born on it. My grandma's favorite colour was purple so I choose WDW's Iris. It's a beautiful color. I worked a double today and we were crazy busy.

I want to stitch more but I need to get some sleep; tomorrow is going to be busy again at work.

Happy New Year and some new stash.

Hi, I went to my LNS on Tuesday and here is my stash I bought. I am going back on Monday to get a few things I saw and just have to have. LOL Don't you hate when you see something and don't buy it; then when you get home it's all you can think about?? LOL

2010 was a rough year; I hope 2011 will be better; even though in Feb. I will be 50 years old. That's my "scary" age. I am really dreading this birthday; but what can you do? Just deal with it and move on. Me and Kenny are talking; so who knows what will happen there; one minute I want to be with him and the next I just want to be alone; but being 50 and alone isn't what I had planned. We'll just have to wait and see.

I know I'm planning on moving back to Ohio this spring and can't wait for a new fresh start. My SIL inherited her parents home and said I could live there; it's really a cute little 2 bedroom house not far from moms. It needs some TLC. I hope everyone has a safe and happy year to come. Thank you all for the sweet comments on my giveaway. And of course here is a new picture of Miss. Scarlett. She's 4 months old now and such a joy; I'm babysitting tonight.

Time for my first Give A Way!!!

I have reached 50 followers and as I said earier; when I reach 50 I am having a give a way!! I'm so excited I can't wait!! I have gathered some great "stitching goodies" and a few little extras; I decided not to post the gift yet; I want it to be a surprise. :)

Your name will have a chance to be entered a few times; first comment on this post, second you must be a follower, and for a third chance mention it on your blog. I will put everyones name in a bowl and let my darling granddaughter (Scarlett) pull a name on January 15th. I can't wait.

I wish all of you a safe and very happy new year; I hope the new year will bring health and happiness to us all. This will be my last post of 2010. I have LOTS of stitching plans for 2011. :)

Hugs, Shar

Merry Christmas to ME!!! :)

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I have been putting a little money away to buy myself a Chrismas gift. I have $100 to purchase myself some new "stash" :) I've made my "order" about 25 times now. LOL I keep changing it. I'm ordering most of it from 123 Stitch; because they always send my order out so fast; and then Stitchers Closet sent me a 25% off coupon;; but they are closed til Jan 4, so they say to expect a 2-3 week delivery; so I"m ordering a few things from them that I don't have to have right now. LOL

Ash & Torry & Miss. Scarlett went to Canon City to take family pictures with his mom and sisters; so the house is nice and quiet. I miss my quiet time. I'm sure in March when they all move away I'll have more than my share of quiet times; and will miss the hectic days/nights we have now. I am thinking of going to the mall today and Joanna's and see if I can find some deals. But I am really enjoying my time alone right now. Maybe later.

Think I'll go stitch; I'm almost done w/frosty and want to finish it today. I don't know what I'll start next?? Maybe something for the "spring"? We'll see...:)
