Have you had a happy dance yet this year? If so, tell us about it! (Or just point to the entry that mentions it.) If not, when do you predict it will be?
I first have to say, congrats to the New York Giants on their win. My head hurts from yelling, and my throat is sore. What a great game! The Packers gave it their all, and it showed, but dang overtime (Webster, you weren't suppose to catch that ball!!) Hope the Giant's coach doesn't end up with a nasty case of frostbite
Just because the Packers lost, doesn't change my liking for them.. it always makes it sweeter! Great job boys! Is it August yet?!
Well, the plan was for the day to go to my BIL's and SIL's house at 11:30am, to watch their son as they went on a little trip downstate. And the kid wanted to watch the game @ 2. So we were asked if we could watch him. So I went down there, and well, he played his Game cube, while I stitched. Worked out great! I did have to frog some on the word love. But I got a great start on it otherwise.
So, this was my results of my stitching today. Its a progress pic of the Double Flips from Lizzie Kate. I LOVE how its turning out! I'm also stitching on a BAP model, so having this as a side project is great!

Would someone PLEASE take this unacceptable thing from my home! ARGH!!
Free to a good home... take all you want! I don't want this darn frog here anymore!
I should be stitching, not rippin!
Note to blog writer.. Would helped if you paid more attention to what you are stitching, then we wouldn't have this problem..LOL
OMG, that pillow in the middle is my model I did for Debbie Draper! How cool is that!! I emailed Mary Kathryn for her permission to link to her blog, and I asked if she had the other model in her pillow pile. She said yes, and that she would post it in time. How cool is that!! I love seeing the model this way. Turned out so darn cute!!
I rented movies the other night for the first time in like 5+ years. And guess what! I already have to pay the late fee..LOL I was going to take the movies (5 of them) back to the video place, but I had a call yesterday not to come into work. So, I called and said I was going to bring them back a day late due to the weather. So I will have to pay the late fees on each of the movies for a day late. GRR!
So, this got Vickie and I into a discussion about movies, as she was watching "3:10 to Yuma", which she got from Netflix, and was extremely happy with their service. So, I asked a few questions about the service. I went to their website, and did some research on my own. Signed up, and did a search for movies.
Ok, why is it when you are looking for good movies, you cant think of them..LOL So I had to do some seeking on the internet what too look for. I think I have a wonderful selection in the queue!!
WOOHOO! Just checked... we have "I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry", "The Lakehouse", and "Hairspray" with the status of shipping today! WOHOO! Now gotta see how long it takes to get here!! My luck they will take the long boat to China or something..LOL
Ok, now I'm looking for suggestions of good movies!!
"Did you hear the news yet?"
"Well I kinda figured it, from your email."
"Ok, well I wanted to know if you wanted to be in our wedding - but it won't be till June 6, '09."
"YES! I would love to be!"
Yep, its "official" (well, the ring isn't on her finger yet, but my brother is working on it). My youngest brother and his gf (who have been together for 5+ yrs now) are getting married! I'm so excited! I'm very honored to be asked to be apart of the wedding party! Both my sister and other brother will be in the bridal party.
A couple hours later, phone rings again. Its my sister.. thinking she is going to talk about the wedding.... nope.
"Do you think you can babysit again when we go to the (Nascar) races in August?"
Nothing like getting advanced warning! Gonna ink up the calendar now! WOOHOO!! Talk about getting some exciting news! Now I'm on a high! I think I will take it out on my stitching.. he he
Size 28 Petite Needles...
Recently I had the opportunity to purchase some size 28 petite needles from someone on the 123 Message board. The lady had purchased them in bulk, and I was able to get 25 of them. Well, my supply is starting to dwindle down. And I want more! I have fallen in love with these needles, and I would love to get more. If you have some that you don't want, or its just not your thing.. I would love to take them off your hands!
You can just post a comment and I can get ahold of you, if not, you can email me.. my email is on my profile page. And we can work something out! I really appreciate it! Can exchange a QSnap Hugger, if you like :)
This week's SBQ is:
Are you starting something new to celebrate the New Year or participating in "Guilt Free January?" If so, what are you planning on starting?
For Jan 1st, I was to start on Snapperville, but I didnt have the fabric. But it arrived yesterday (the 2nd), and I have put a few stitches into it.
Walked into Bigari's today on a mission. "Where can I find the mouse traps?"
"Aisle 50, just past the barbecue" (how fitting).
See, the other night.. Brian heard something in the cupboard. He found the source of the noise, proceeded to look. "Kim, you have to come here and look at this"
I get out of the stitching chair to find a pile of uncooked noodles next to the plastic storage bowls. Umm they don't belong there!! I checked out where the noodles are stored. And there I find chewed open bag of noodles... with a 1/4 of the bag remain. ARGH! Brian starts to take the plastic bowls out of the cupboard. We set a trap in the cupboard.
I was investigating where the rest of the noodles would be stored.. and I happen to seek damage that the dang
Over the next couple nights.. the first night, the mouse moved all the uncooked noodles that we left in its pile.. and they are missing now. Set a trap.. it was triggered, and no mouse.. peanut butter gone. Last night, we could hear the mouse.. but didn't get lucky. Trap was not triggered and the peanut butter was missing.. ARGH!
So, that was the last straw! After work tonight I stopped and got some different, more effect traps.... I bought two kinds. The de-Con 'No View, No Touch Mouse Traps, and something that I haven't seen before. Its a plastic trap, and claims to be more effect than the ordinary trap. So I got home. Showed Brian my purchases which totaled $12.70. We placed two of the plastic traps in the cupboard with its final nibble of cheese.
We proceeded with our evening. A few hours later we hear a clunk. Brian and I both look at each other and Bri tells me. "I think we got it" He looks in the cupboard where he thinks it may be. I told him to be careful when he opens the door..LOL Gotta think, safety first!
YEP!! We got a mouse!! I'm not an animal killer, well expect for animals that are eating my food and causing havoc!
Guess what I get to do this weekend! You better be thinking, oh my.. she better be cleaning up her cupboards and rewashing all the dishes. Yep, you guessed it!
After I got up, and going. Threw a load of laundry into the washer. Then I checked emails, and then started lunch.. LOL Did another load later on.
I worked on a QSnap Hugger order, and I got all 12 of them completed! Talked with my sister, my mom and dad on the phone. Just plain had a lazy day! We are watching The Twilight Zone marathon on SciFi, pretty much all evening.
Have not left the house all day, and no plans to either..LOL I'm off to stitch! Might have a finish to show in a couple days! The only plans for tomorrow.. bank and post office!
