About Me

I am from East Tennessee. I live in the beautiful Great Smokey Mountains with my husband and 2 children, my Granmother,(who has now gone to Heaven) and 3 doggies, 2 kitties, and a hamster.(sadly Hammie and 1 kitty have went to Heaven with Gran) I enjoy cross stitching which is my escape from the real world. Think I need it? LOL

New and Refreshed!

Yea Right! I have gotten a few things done since my last post along with getting over a stomach virus. I still don't feel quite myself but I feel ALOT better than this past weekend. I have completed the towel for an exchange I am in. I will post pics of all my completions to date tonight. Right now, I am "supervising" my daughters job. She is assisting in babysitting our cousins. ( She gets paid for this) She loves to do it but is glad when its over. The children are 1,3,8,9. The older ones are more play buddies but its the 1 yr old that she loves to "play" with. She's great with kids. Off to clean the kitchen..provided I can!

Barely Stitching

I think I am in a stitching slump. I really want to..I really do! I just can't seem to get the time.
Gran has been driving me crazy and I have been having some really bad headaches lately so I can't really see much to stitch. Hopefully, this weekend though. I haven't completed any of my weekly projects. Maybe I can carry them over to next week. Guess I will have to!
Autumn and Shawn are going on the annual fishing derby tomorrow. It is great to know that I have a husband that will take the time to take his DAUGHTER fishing. Most guys I know will only do that sort of thing with their boys. Well, our boy doesn't care about fishing..He is more into girls and football! LOL. He is growing up I guess.
Til tomorrow...or whenever...HA! Bye**

It has been a minute since I have posted. I have not gotten very much stitching done lately. My Great Aunt passed away and we attended her funeral over the weekend. I am still playing catch up with the house. We are remodeling Autumn's room...well painting it a different color and trying to make her feel more her age. She has sooooo many toys , I am trying to get her to weed thru some of them and give some away. She sold most of her Bratz collection and bought herself a nice CD player and a CD rack along with a DVD rack for her room. I was so proud. I will have to post pics of her room when it is finished. I would post the befores, but I would simply die of embarrassment. I did manage to finish my first square on Catherine's RR. I still have one more to do. I have also got to do a bookmark, towel and now a magnet all for exchanges I am in. I just made my first flat-fold tonight. It was rather easy. I'll post a pic of it soon too.
Hope everyone is well. I think I will go sleep awhile.
Night all!

Been a bit

It has been a bit since my last post. I have had alot going on. My Great Aunt passed away on May 30th. She had been struggling a battle with diabetes and heart complications. She really went down hill fast. My Gran doesn't know yet. She was her sister. I don't think I will tell Gran. I'm afraid of how she will react. I have managed to get some stitching in. I completed Patriotic Flip Flops by SanMan Originals. I recently joined the message board there and I am IN LOVE! It is awesome! Sandy's charts are sooooooo cute. I can't say enough! I think I might have to change my " To Do List" and add more SMO charts.
On another note..I also finished a piece for an RR that I am doing with America's Best Round Robin. These ladies are wonderful and such a joy to work with! I also recieved a gift this past week from my friend Becca. She made me a stitch by LizzieKate. It is soooooo cute and just what I needed to lift my spirits a bit. I will post pics on here this weekend. It is late and I have to get ready for tomorrow and the funeral.
Off to bed I go!
*No stitching tonight* :(
