My mom doesn't look at my blog so I can post pictures of what I made her for our annual stitch and bitch dinner tomorrow night. This is called a doll house needlepoint kit from Janet Granger design! It is so cute! The stand came in pieces and it had to be stained. I am so proud of myself to read directions to know how to put it together! More pictures to come after dinner tomorrow night! Have a great monday! Stay warm!

My class piece, tombstone mansion by Chessie and Me is almost complete! All I need to do is complete the saying and one more black cat!
After I finish this piece, hopefully by tomorrow I am going to start my pre stitch class piece called The Mermaid's Two Tales by Sherri Jones. Going to start dinner and keep working! I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

I have been working on this class piece by Chessie and Me. I wish I could say I was farther but sadly I'm not. I will say it is coming out beautiful and tons of fun to stitch...but my poor stitching bag is bulging and I must finish some things to make more room for new. :)
Good bye for now, may your work week go by quick and painless.

Last weekend I went to salty yarns for our annual halloween stitching weekend. It was great I got a lot done and had a great time talking with everyone. Everyone brought gift bags and wore festive attire. It was so great. Today I had our class Halloween party, which resulted in a ton of eating and no teaching. All well it is good to have a fun day! I will leave everyone with a picture of last weekend and of my fifth grade team and I

I have had a busy week! Today was this first day that I actually got home before it was dark outside. I leave when its darl and come home when its dark. All well at least this week has come to an end. There was some pluses this week, like stitch and bitch. It was great to see everyone and I also signed up for a class! Yipee... it is a pre stitch and when I get the pattern I will show pictures. I am absolutely obsessed with it and cant wait! I also got to see how some other stitchers are coming along with their class pieces. Below are pictures of my progress on Tombstone mansion by Chessie snd me. It doesn't look like I got mich done tonight but some of its over one and other stitches are mostly smyrna crosses so I am hsppy with my progress. Now I'm off to work on Shepherds bush grey snowman...
Tata for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

It was great to see everyone and to hear great stories. I look forward to stitch and bitch tuesday! So happy that it is fall!

This is how I stitch nightly... It is like a puzzle to figure out. I don't know where to put my hands because when they are working with thread Velcro is attacking them. Velcro is the beautiful cat asleep at the moment. Which means I can stitch a bit but can't get up! Well wish me luck! Happy Monday!

I came back to reality last sunday and went back to school onTuesday. Then this Friday we took all of our BETA students (36) to a convention in VA Beach. BETA is a group of students that recieve all A's and B's. We had a great time and the kids were well behaved BUT!!! I seen them all weekend except today, and I have to go back tomorrow! It isn't fair I didn't have any time off!
On to stitching... I finished this piece while I was on vacation. This is Halloween Night by Shepherds Bush. The only thing missing is buttons. There are quite a few but I can't buy the button pack because I stitched it on a smaller count so I have to match the buttons next time I go to Salty Yarns.
I hope everyone has a great week. I hope I make it through this week!

Other then staring out the window, I decided to shovel some snow from the steps and ride around with my hubby looking at the beautiful scenery. While I was so excited about the snow, it still caused one problem... hubby had to stay home from work because our restaurant was closed due to the weather. I love spending time with him but I would rather stitch and watch my shows that I like. I also like to do things at my own pace. Like making lunch, Hubby... Candi let's eat lunch. Me... I am not hungry right yet. Hubby... Fine I will starve to death! Sometimes I feel like I have a child to take care of. Who pouts over lunch? Anyway, tomorrow I have to go back to work. I should be fine with going back to work since I only worked two days out of nine, but I have a case of workitis. Workitis- feeling of impending doom when going to work.
On the stitching front, I have decided to work on a range of things. I work on a piece and when I get tired of working on that one, I reach in my bag and grab another piece to work on. Today I have two amazing pieces to show. The picture below is Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor. I enjoy working on this piece. The threads are Valdani and really great to work with.

Anyway... Off to stitchiness. On vacation I worked on Shepherd's Bush, Halloween Night. I could have done more but I am stumped. Where I changed the color of the fabric, the letter colored thread no longer works. Does anyone have any idea about which of these colors you would use for the lettering. I was thinking about the golden yellow of the moon and star. What do you think?

Resolution/ Goal update: The back of my Halloween piece looks as good as the front, next time I will post a picture of it, all threads are neatly placed and cut. Also, I am soon to start a snowman. Well on my way to keeping my resolution.
Have a great week everyone, I will be back next week with beautiful pictures to show and hopefully a lot of progress!
To all my Stitch and Bitch friends: I am sorry I won't be there this month but I will see you at Super Bowl!
