Happy Birthday to ME!

Saturday, I will hit the big 3-0! Hubby and I are going to dinner tomorrow night (I have no idea where) and have plans for the big day on Saturday (I have no idea what). DH is very good with the surprises so I have no worries. My.only request was that we not be out and about on Saturday night when all the stupid drunks will be out trying to ruin everyone elses good time.

Today is my Friday at work as my office is closed tomorrow and Monday. I also took an extra day off on Tuesday so I am very much looking forward to this weekend!!

Earlier in the week I was able to make some more progress on "Growing". Almost done the first page of the pattern!

Also, as a birthday treat for myself, I ordered my first Chatelaine Design. Hawaiian Garden Mandala. Love love love! It won't be something I will be able to start anytime soon as I will need some time to gather threads, treasures and such, but its a start! Can't wait to get my hands on that chart and see what I've gotten myself into, lol.

Hope you all have a wonderful new years weekend!

Last TUSAL of the year

Here is my last TUSAL picture for the year. Not any different than last month. Didn't get a chance for much stitching this month until yesterday and I've stopped trying to shove more into the jar. Lol!

I am also showing a picture of a Christmas gift from my sweet hubby. Its a qsnap lap frame, I am in looove!! Danielle and I saw a lady using one of these at the retreat we went to in November and thought it was the neatest thing. It is made by a vendor in the UK so it was quite a hunt to find a shop that carried here in the US. I found a shop in Florida and texted the link to DH hoping he got the hint!

It is a wonderful lap frame and offers not one but TWO qsnap sizes for you to use! You just flip it over to use the smaller/larger size. It is extremely light weight and sits on my lap comfortably while I recline on the couch.

I am hoping to soon be able to get better at stitching with both hands, but for now am enjoying having my right hand cramp free since I no longer have to hold my frame!

Well Then

I had typed up a nice post and then had to delete it. Now, I just can't be bothered to retype all that stuff.

More progress on "growing", package in the mail from abcstitch.

While the hubby was out doing some Christmas shopping I got to enjoy some time at home. After cleaning a bit, I got to sit for the rest of the evening and indulge myself with stitching and trashy tv.

I'll make my husband do it.

Today, I visited my lns The Stitching Post. I needed threads and fabric for the new Country Cottage SAL I joined and treated myself to a few other treats.

Shepherds Bush Holy Night chart, a few cuts of fabrics, and some threads. While I was there, I saw a gorgeous and sparkly model of The Victoria Samplers White Christmas. The white on white stitching is so pretty in person with just the right sparkle of pearl beads and silver stitching.

Guess I am a bit late to be picking up Christmas charts, but seeing them definitely put me in the spirit!
