Anyone seen my mojo?

...'cause I seem to have misplaced it.    No stitching at all last week at all.  Accept for a little bit of work on Elizabeth  LAST WEEK!  Which I didn't post, so I'm posting it now.  It doesn't look like much but if you look real close you can see that the word "birds" is stitched out and I've started on some of the grassy knoll.

How was everyone's Easter?  Ours was lovely.  We actually had deep fried turkey this year.  It was scumptious! We had never done it before so we did have a wonderful ham as backup.  I'm not much of a turkey fan, but this was certainly de-lish!

Hubby has gone out of town to work this week.  Leaving at 4 this morning. So I'm thinking I'm going to have lots of time to stitch this week.  I think I just have to settle into my chair with my stitching in lap and something good on tv and my mojo will find me again.

Here's hoping!!!

LIzzie update

I don't have too much to show you, other than the stitching that I did on Sunday.  With the weather and temps changing and going up and down, my headache's have been on and off.  I can't hardly wait until Spring has actually settled, and then summer....ahhhhh.... how I love summer.  I am already daydreaming about going camping by the lake!  I say this as they are forecasting mixed rain and snow for tomorrow and the day after.  But summer will eventually come I know it will.  So there was no stitching on anything other than Elizabeth on Sunday, (my SAL with Kati) but I got quite a bit done. 

So tonight, the only plans I have are to sit and stitch.

Over at Cross stitch and Cupcakes, she's having an amazingly generous giveway, you have to go check it out!

A bird in the hand....

I have been without a computer for 8 solid days!!!  I know that doesn't sound like a long time, but it is when you are one of those people that like to have their morning coffee with their emails, and browsing the stitching world, to see what's new with everyone.  And see what everyone can entice you into stitching.  Which Kati, by the way, has me salivating over her little bird on an egg.  Carol had it on her blog a little while ago too.  I have to get my hands on it.  :)  So yes now I am back, and I am 8 days behind on my blog reading!  EEKKK  I need a whole weekend to catch up and that's just what I am going to do.  Mind you I would have had plenty of time to do that this past weekend.  We had a snowstorm and well...the pic speaks for itself for a lovely April 2nd day.  It was funny actually, the forecasters on all the radio and news stations, were repeating that it wasn't an April fool's joke, when they were forecasting the weather for the weekend, that we were in for at least 20 cm of snow the following day.  I guess we were all hoping that it would be a joke, but it wasn't

I stitched on Elizabeth.  I didn't take a scan of it last Sunday cause I didn't have the computer, and I didn't even think to take of a picture of it last week, but here it is as of Sunday night for our Sunday SAL with Kati. Yes that bird is sitting in Liz's ghostly hand.

Sockeye is coming along, I am almost finished with the fish itself, and then I'll be working on the splash.  I think I'm going to start a small project though tonight, and have a little quick finish. then I'll start on the splash when that's done....I need a little happy dance.

Ort Report....

.....self explanitory.  LOL

And just to end the day....a pic of Lulu!  My gorgeous baby girl.  She's going in to have her spaying next Friday!
