Halloween Stitching Day 26

I must be a bad wife or I have a very understanding husband!!  I looked at my husband yesterday when I wasn't feeling well and said "You are golfing tomorrow right?"  He laughed and said why, do you want me to out of the house?"  Where I replied..."Yes,  Go somewhere, I need the house to myself."   He did!!  I came home after a day of professional development, I was tired and cranky.  He kissed my forehead and went to the casino, stayed gone until 10:00 pm!!!  It was so nice!!

Disclaimer here:  my husband works from home and he is always home, from the moment I get up for work until I go to sleep again.  He usually has the TV sound up loud and it makes me cranky.  So I  just like a day when I can come home and be quiet....

Did I stitch alot today?  No...I actually sat and read for a while,  I played my Disney magic kingdom game on my ipad and looked all my new magazines.  I was doing all this  while watching floss tube!!  I love flosstube.  I have been watching all of Stitcherista's videos.   She cracks me up. She has such amazing stitching projects and stash!!  She is full of energy too!!!

Halloween Stitching Day 26- Fall Hydrangeas and White Pumpkins JCS Sept/Oct 2013.  28 count Monaco hand dyed by me with Rit Dye.

Love this is what I was able to stitch and there really is a funny story here:

So when I tried to start this project, I none of the threads was in the box!  What the heck....I tried like 5 symbols...then I realized, I had the thread box for my HAED - A Wintery Heirloom which is a winter piece !!  UGH!!  Once I found the right pattern box for all the fancy pumpkins, I was able to start.   I felt so stupid.

Look at my treasures!!!  I will start showing my favorites soon!!!  So much fun!

Happy stitching all!!!

I think a lot of people need some quiet time every now and then. It's great that you can ask for it without there being hurt feelings. Love your new start.

Awesome! Glad you got some time to yourself and are enjoying your new magazines. I'm still trying to resist buying any. :)

Another great start Vickie. I have been getting that magazine from the beginning.

I love the fact that I can stitch with my husband there and either watch what's on the tv or have a conversation!

Oh, pumpkins and hydrangeas, how lovely ;-)

My bf leaves me a lot of me-time (he likes gaming and quite often he just wants to play so I have the living room to myself), but sometimes it's nice to have the flat to myself for an evening ;-)

Great magazines! Lol that sounds like my hubby and I except he works out of the home.
