out of my stitching funk!

Finally, I can honestly say I am out of my stitching funk. With DH's job situtation and thinking we were moving or not moving stay or not stay...if just made me want to play video games online and not stitch. Which is bad since I am working on a model.

DH and I made the decision that if the formal offer was a good one then we would definetly move. WEll...the offer came in and it wasn't that great...we would actually be starting over with lower salaries and a higher cost of he is going to make a counter offer but as of right now we are not mvoing! Which makes me very excited. I was all for moving but I really didn't want to give up my job or leave my friends and family.

So...while I were we in NC last weekend...I worked on 4 calling birds for a RR....up top is what I was able to finish in the airports. Will be working on it more today.

Tiring Weekend

I thought this weekend I would spend the whole time stitching and watching TV. Sounds boring to some people but I was looking forward to it. I got a call early Friday morning from my dad telling me my uncle (who is like a dad to me) was in ICU. He had had a reaction to the medicine he was taking and wasn't doing well. So Saturday, I went down and spent the night in the hospital room. So I didn't get much stitching accomplished. He is doing much better today.

Once I got home on Sunday I was able to stitch and finish the 2nd page of Cherokee Child. Which is posted on the right. I thought about going to my LNS for the superbowl sale...but I was tired I sat down and just fell asleep in my chair.

The pictures above are from my snow day the other day....It is all gone now which is so sad. I loved watching it it was in the 50's....and one day this week it will be in the 70's.

That is right! We actually had a snow day today and will have one tomorrow. I spent the day watching the snow fall and cross stitching. I have to say it was a good day! I worked on my Cherokee child. I would like to reach my goal of having 3 pages stitched by March 1st...but I don't think I will be able to do that.

Stella found a good home with a coworker of mine. I haven't talked with her to see how things were going but I am sure she is happy. The boys were glad to have her go to her new home. She was a little to hyper for them!! LOL!!!

If you take a peek on the will see an update on Tiger and Cherokee child. The picures up top are of my one at a time RR with my ILCS group. It is the 2006 Kats by Kelly series. I am stitching them all on one piece of fabric. The other is the prize I won when I entered a teacup design contest.
