I'm Late!

Hello Everybody!

And I think that I posted this prematurely cause my fingers did a gig across the keyboard and posted with a partial title and that's I'm going to rectify that.  Just goes to show you how busy I really have been.

I haven't had a chance to post my Sunday SAL yet so here it is.  Don't you love it?

I really just worked on the inside border on Sunday, which was good because I didn't have to follow the chart, and I could watch the red carpet and the Oscars on Sunday.  I must say I was disappointed.  Not with the winners (because I really don't care about that to be honest)  Half the movies that I like don't qualify for Oscar nominations, so that doesn't matter to me.  I like to watch what people are wearing!  And I have to tell you I thought it was a little lack-lustre this year.  No one's outfit popped out to me as being to die for.  Oh well. Maybe next year.  I do have to say that as far as the show goes, I loved the opening and Lady I have to even say how sensational she was?? props to her.

This is just a drive by posting...I will take a couple of pics of my WIP's and hopefully get a chance to post on Friday.

Love you! xoxo

Post Valentine's day

Hello Everybody!

How was everyone's Valentine's day?  This year hubby whisked me away for a weekend of romance and friends, and theater and great food.  Our friend's daughter was stage manager of a performance at the University of Lethbridge and we were invited to go with them.  Taking advantage of it, we decided to make a weekend of it.  Left on Friday after we closed the shop a little earlier and went away for the whole weekend.  It was heaven!  Being pampered and fed and spoiled!  I love my hubby!

That being said I didn't get any stitching done on my Sunday I kind of cheated, as this was a long I worked on our SAL on Monday instead.  Got quite a bit done, and I'm still loving it!

I started a small piece in the middle of last week for Valentine's day as well, but I didn't get that one finished.  So hopefully I'll get a chance to do that...don't think that I'm going to have much time to stitch this week, as I have lots of work to do, plus out with the girls tonight to see 50 shades of grey.  (I haven't read the books, so I have no preconceived expectations.) And then dinner afterwards.   Tomorrow we have a friend coming over while her daughter is at hockey practice.  And then on Thursday, we are having a family dinner because it's the only time one of my nieces can make it before she heads back to school.  Friday.....I may have a chance to hold needle in hand, but we all know how well laid plans normally pan out.  So I'm thinking sometime this weekend.  I signed up for hermit stitching weekend this weekend (I can't believe that it's already the third weekend of the month) so I'm hopeful!

And how was everyone else's week?

Short and Sweet

Hey everyone!

We have been so busy, that I didn't even get a chance to post yesterday, but I did manage to take a quick shot of my Cornwall Cottage's progress that I did get a chance to work on for a good chunk of the evening on Sunday.  I LOVE working on this and just hate putting it away on Sunday night, but I guess that makes it more exciting.  Perhaps if I worked on it everyday, then it wouldn't be as dear a project.

I haven't had a chance to see how Kati and Linda have done, so I'm going to go scoot over there and see how they have progressed.  I think I'll do some blog-hopping tonight as I haven't done too much of that in the last couple of days.  And I just hate to miss out on anything!  LOL

Feb 1 Sunday SAL Update

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and managed to stay warm and safe in all of the snowstorms that I saw cross over the country....both yours and mine.  We had a nice quiet weekend of watching movies and just hanging out with one another.  It was nice.  No plans, no where to go.  I love weekends like that.  Spent a lot of couch time cuddling and watching the tube.  

Didn't get too much stitching done, but I did get some done. We are not football watchers.  Oh no...I heard your collective gasps as I admit that, but we did peek in from time to time.  Watched the  first 10 minutes, the half-time show, and the last 10 minutes.

As far as stitching goes, I pulled out Elizabeth again on Saturday and did some work on her.  I'll post a pic of that sometime later in the week, as it's in the perfect place in the q-snaps right now and don't want to move it.  And then I stitched a couple of hours on Cornwall Cottage, not as much as I would have liked, but still some.  I still can't say it enough that this is such a satisfying piece to work on.  I love it.

Not much else is new.  Working on year end for the company.  Lots of work to do on that, but it's all enjoyable.  Have a great week everyone.  I might pop in on Wednesday with a WIP update.

Bachelor tonight, hopefully lots of stitching will be done.  However we are taking Lulu for her annual check up this afternoon, which means shots etc.  Might have to spend some cuddle time with her tonight.
