A finish & new start..

I finially finished my "All is Calm", I had to frog a few times and had to put it down for a day or two before I threw it..LOL I started stitching this adorable snowman; I got it last year but never stitched it and it's such a fun stitch; I think I'll finish this one in a few days; I love the colours.

I have to get ready for work; not much to say this morning, wish I didn't have to work today; would love to just sit home and stitch all day.. hope everyone is having a good week..

Never stitch and....

Try to watch your football team get their butts kicked..LOL I had to "frog" this picture about 7 times this morning finding all the little mistakes I made watching the Steeler's playing last night (and they lost) :( I still have to restitch the tree. LOL

We were off work today and went and did all our errand running and grocery shopping done; so tomorrow we can just lay around the house and be lazy (inbetween the laundry loads). We are suppose to get 2-6" of snow (it changes hourly the amount were suppose to get). Scarlett is learing where her nose, ears & eyes she is pointing to her "eyyyyyeeeee". LOL

Kenny made some killer pork chops & mashed potatoes for dinner; I'm going to make my Grandma's homemade beef soup tomorrow; it has to cook all day on the stove and it's going to be the perfect day for it. I hope to finish "All is Calm" either tonight or tomorrow and start "Snow in Love". I'm going to stitch about 3 ornaments before I "finish" them. I still haven't unpacked all my "goodies" from the move. LOL I need some new storage bins and haven't gotten them yet. I don't know exactly how I want to do my stitching room yet? I know I need somekind of table. I guess I'll know it when I see it. Hope everyone is having a great week so far...

Sad day...

6 years ago today I lost my dad. They say time heals all wounds and I have found that to not be true; it hurts as much today as it did back then. I had a good cry last night and this morning; I know my dad wouldn't want me to be sad today and would want me to remember the great times we shared and believe me I'm trying. I guess it's just being selfish. Me and my dad were GREAT dancers; when we'd go out dancing w/our family there was NEVER any better dancers and I have some wonderful memories of us. This picture was taken about 4 years before he passed and was the last time we went dancing. I will cherish it forever and wanted to share it with all of you.

I have to work today and I thought that would be better than sitting home alone (Kennys working also) and crying all day; he wouldn't want that. :) I "kitted" up some of the stash I recently got and think I'm gonna start on my "LK Snowmen" tonight while I watch the Steeler's kick Baltimores butts...:)

Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday...
