Late again

Well I always have good intentions to upload my WIP pics on time, but time always gets away from me. And this week the excitement of Las Vegas!

I didn't get a lot of time to stitch on my SAL LHN piece on Sunday, real life got in the way. But I did manage to finish the middle part of it. So now it's just deciding whether I'm going to do the top of the bottom of it. I'll flip a coin, but I'm leaning towards the top row. I won't be stitching this coming Sunday on it, so it will be the week after anyway, so I'll have time to decide.

And here's a pic of the WIP of ROS! I am starting to see a bit of a light at the end of the tunnel on this one. It didn't make Mother's day, or my Mom's birthday, but it will surely be done by christmas. I already have thoughts of my next focus piece going thru my mind. But haven't decided yet on that one either. Too many things I want to do...and always too many new ones that pop up that have to be done as well. EEEKKKK!!!!

I am patiently awaiting my pre-ordered JCS Ornie issue. But up in Canada I guess it takes a little longer. I am itching to flip thru it. ARGH!!!!!!!

It's Tuesday!

And I have updates! I should have done this yesterday but I didn't get around to loading the pics from my camera to my pc. I have emails to catch up on as well that I wanted to get done on the weekend but I didn't get to that either, so if I owe you an email you will get them this week, I promise. It's just that the weather is so nice right now that I don't want to miss any of it. We have long cold winters and I am enjoying summer for as long as I can!

Anyway...blah blah blah...right? LOL

I feel like I got lots done on ROS last week. Didn't get too much time to stitch on it, but when I did, I got nice chunks done.

And then I didn't get as much done on my Neighbourhood as I wanted. I had more housework to do than I thought, and then I company for a couple of hours, so that all took time out of my stitching time. I wanted to get the middle part all done, but I didn't make it. Oh well, hopefully this coming Sunday.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions for Vegas Stash shopping! Looks like I'll be heading to Stitcher's Paradise! WOOOO HOOOO!!! I can't wait!

Great Stitchy weekend!

Hubby had to work this weekend, he was on call at two plants this weekend, and they pretty much kept him busy all 3 days of the Labour Day weekend. As much as I didn't like that he wasn't home...I have to admit (but don't tell him) that I had a GREAT weekend! I worked on and finished my September Ornament

Design - North Pole sign
Designer - Leisure Arts
Stitched on 28 ct white lugana

I worked on and finished my September square on my BC Snapper Year - September Brings

And I stitched a good chunk of my LHN - Neighbourhood SAL piece with Kati. I'm hoping that next Sunday I'll be able to finish the middle level of this piece. I love this project, but I do find it a bit hard to keep myself motivated thru the blocks of colours on the houses. But I'm not complaining...just stating a peeve. LOL

Then today...dant dant daaaaaa....we picked up our tickets for Vegas. Me and a couple of girlfriends are leaving the hubby's behind and heading down for a girls weekend! WOO HOOO!!!!! I'm so excited. Sept 24 - Sept 27th! So hopefully I can find at least one stitchy shop to spend some money in! If anyone knows of any I am open for suggestions. And any other shopping as well! WOOO HOOOO (Yea, I'm not excited at all. LOL)

So that's my update for today. Going to stitch on ROS for the rest of the week. Next week I should be able to show some decent progress on her.
