I now pronounce....

Shepherds Bush, O Beautiful!
This piece is so beautiful. It is my pride and joy.
Lately I have been "slacking" on blogging. I have ben really busy. I have gone back to work at night and during the day I have to do hours at the local elementary school for my last class. Yes I said it, My LAST class! I get my Bachelors degree in K-6 this May!
Anyway...I have made a little more progress on By the Bay Needleart, Winter Cove. I plan on working on this a little tonight along with a class piece.
I also went to Salty Yarns today and bought lots of goodies that Sally and Sara brought from Nashville. My next post will be of what I bought. Tata for now!

New Start

Shwooo... I have had a long couple of days. This past weekend I went back to work, waiting tables. I love waiting tables but I feel like I have ran a hundred miles. Ive been off for over a month and running around all weekend just wore me out! Anyway... I think I have recovered and am back to bloggy land.
I started a new project a couple days ago. It is "Winter Cove" by By The Bay Needleart. I wish these pictures could show how much the colors just pop off of the fabric. I absolutly love this pattern and it is fun to stitch.I also got a call today saying that Shepherd's Bush, O beautiful is done being framed along with two prints that I bought from Micheals, that I am going to put in my living room. The framers is about an hour away so I might not get up there til this weekend. :(
I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

A finish and snow update

I finished Beekeeper's Cottage by Shepherd's Bush!!I also have some picture of the second snow storm. This last storm was weird because we got ALOT of rain before it started snowing then it all froze and the snow piled on top of it.
I love snow and it is supposed to start snowing AGAIN tomorrow!! I know I cant believe it. We have broke records this year!I have some progress on my Jane Timmers class piece but i am almost done so I am going to finish it and then post the pictures. Wish us luck tomorrow it is supposed to snow all day. Im so excited!

Progress X2

I have some more of my class project done.Here is my progress on Shepherd's Bush Beekeeper Cottage. The picture of the whole piece is very close to the color of fabric. Its over dyed so there is a dark streak through part of it. I really like the fabric.
Supposedly there is a Nor Easter heading this way with snow/sleet/ice/rain coming with it. I have heard so many different stories all of the weather channels say something different. I wish I could get paid for lying like they do. As everyone knows I love snow and hope it snows a lot but if anyone seen the pictures of the past two Nor Easters, you will see that the tides are the worst part of it. So if it snows alot and the tide is covering our road we are going to be in bad shape. Thats not putting in that they are calling for 60 mile an hour winds. But who knows what to believe. But you can believe it when I say that if it is interesting then I will have plenty of pictures to share. Hey... maybe I really can be a weather lady.... Syke, definatly not. But if I can't go anywhere it means that there is more stitching time! Yahhhh!!!
Ohhhh.... Yeah. Rain, snow, sleet, or shine I will be at Salty Yarns on Sunday they are having their big Super Bowl Sale!!! Wippeee! Can't wait, I better borrow Jon's 4 WD truck to get there just in case. :)

Tata for now,

So yesterday was my day of nothingness and I got caught up in my nothingness and didn't post my snow pictures, so here they are..
(Above) These 2 pictures are from yesterday. Which was the day after the snow day. Yeah our roads still look like that today too. The only reason it didn't stick on the trees was because it was windy.(Above) This is my back deck we could barely get the screen door open. Right after it stopped snowing.(Above) this picture was taken when it was still snowing but I thought the steps were neat looking.
I know that if you are from somewhere it snows a lot you probably think I am crazy for making such a big deal about the snow but it doesn't snow hardly ever here and I absolutely love it!! Now I have to go un-stitch what I stitched yesterday. Im back tracking. :(
Everyone stay warm and dry!
