Glad last week is in the books

Last week was terrible!!!   I am so glad it is in the books.  I missed not one but 3 homework assignments that were due!!!  OMG!!!  In my defense when they added these dates to my class I was home with Pneumonia and they didn't post the changed dates.  So I had to rush around and get things finished.  Have you ever had a supervisor  think you are doing your job wrong, call you  in to talk to you about it, then when you try to explain, they talk over you.  You then decide your best bet is to just be quiet and agree with them?  That was me this week....I am just frustrated.

Please say a prayer for me on Wednesday.  I have to go into the hospital for a small out patient procedure.  As  I told my students,  they are going to put a camera down my throat, place an electrode in my esophagus  to see if the acid in my stomach is coming into my lungs as I sleep.  After this, I get to carry around a black box that will read the electrode.   I get to be a science experiment until Friday!   Fun times!!!

New Stash:  I found this off Ebay and won a it at a great price!!!

Stitching Updates:    Not much to accomplished because not much stitching time but....

This past week I worked on:

Witch One - 4 part series and I finished one part!!! Yay me!!!

Faery Tales - I was able to put in a couple hundred stitches.  Moving slowly but every stitch counts right???

Princess Grace -  I was able to put in a few stitches in the base.  

New Start:  Winter Wonderland:   As you can see...not much accomplished but I was able to put in 100 stitches:

My Plans for this week include:

I will have Two new starts:

Pooh's Christmas Tree - Disney Catalog Ebay Find

Victorian Christmas Eve - Saturday Project

My Three WIP's I will be Working on are:

Mirabilia Ella - Thursday/Friday Project 

Trick or Treat Pals -  Tuesday/Wednesday Project

Love your new Mickey chart Vickie. Nice progress on all of your projects. Also love your new starts this week. I didn't win the Mickey chart on Ebay. I have always wanted the Victorian Christmas Eve. Where did you get it? Good luck with your procedure. Work can sometimes suck. Been there. Done that.

Lovely stitching!! I love the Mickey Give Thanks-it is so cute. I love your ambitious stitching plan. The Victorian Christmas Eve a design I have wanted to stitch for ages-where did you find yours?

Could you send me a link to your thirty-one bags site? I want to order a lunch bag.

Good luck with your procedure. Will be praying and sending good thoughts your way.
