December 9, 2015

Hola!  I think it's time for an update, what do you think?
I am working on page 22 of Ruh and enjoying the time with him.  I was out over Thanksgiving and was out sick Monday, so I didn't get stitching time in with him for a bit.  Plus I was taking naps at lunchtime at work, so there's that...
Anywho - Here he is:
I told you I hadn't worked on him much.
I need to get moving on my Giraffe at home.  I need to finish 2 pages by the end of the year if I want to make my goal on the HAED BB.  I am hoping that I can get it done.  I have not put more stitches into it yet.

I got new q-snap covers, this is one of them.  The other is at home on Gir.  I got them from Lindy Lou's Super Covers on Facebook.  Go check her out!
I am also addicted to needle minders now.  Here is my current stash, (missing some that I just bought and the ones I keep at home for stitching), that I have at work:
All but 1 of these I got from Gina's Unique Needleminders on Facebook.  Look her up, she does more than just needle minders!
My Jack had an issue with his head... it kept falling off.  So Gina sent me a replacement and I glued his head into his hand.  (Like in the movie).

Ha!  I love it so much!!  
Anywho.  That is it for me today.
Happy stitching!

November 18, 2015

Today I finished page 21!  I am halfway done with Ruh!  I am thinking of the black that I am going to have to go back to and fill it, but it shouldn't be too bad.
Do you think it is looking good?

I also got my tattoo finished on Nov 7th.

I love it!  It is still peeling just a little, but it is almost healed up.  I am so happy with it.

Hubby had a birthday on Nov 8th.  I bought him a new graphics card for his birthday.  (Well he bought it but you know what I mean).

That's it for now.
Thanks for checking out my blog!

October 27, 2015

I am a horrid person.  No updates in how long?  August!!  How did that happen??
A few unstitchy things prior to stitchy things.
Hubby got a new job!!!  He is getting paid much better, doesn't have mandatory overtime, likes what he does, and the people he works for!  The commute is about the same, but there are no bridge tolls now, so that helps!  Plus, he carpools, so the commute isn't as bad since he has his buddies to talk to.  :)  
Our 300C Chrysler is still in the shop.. they lost the key.  (We only have one).  So, we got a new car.  Hubby drove it to work the first day he had to drive carpool and the check engine light came on.  Yeah, we returned that after not even having it 2 weeks!!  We got another car and it's much better and has less miles on it.  For pretty much the same price.  Score!  He loves it and it drives wonderfully.
This past Saturday we took our daughter to go see Owl City in San Francisco.  She got the VIP ticket and got to meet him and get her picture taken with him.  She also got to tell him that he was a very big inspiration to her and that she loved his work.  

In the 5th grade she was in the talent competition at school and sang his song "Fireflies" onstage in front of all of her peers and numerous parents.  She has loved Owl City for so long and I knew that I had to get her to meet him.  I am so glad that I did.  She had an amazing day.  "The best day of my life" is how she actually describes it.  It made me so happy that we could do this for her.  The pictures of Owl City were taken by me at the back of the venue.  She was right up against the stage!  I don't have the really good picture she took here, but it is amazing.  She was so close!!
The weekend before that, on Friday, we went to see Zac Brown.  I really like the band and it doesn't hurt that my hubby has a Zac Brown look about him either.
Hubby and I went with 2 of my girlfriends and we had a great time.
I went to MO for work for a week.  It was an interesting trip, but I was very happy when I got home.  I missed my family!
On to the stitching.  
I haven't touched Giraffe for awhile, so there isn't any update on him.  I have however been working on Ruh and he is coming along nicely.  Page 21 is moving right along.
Isn't he handsome?  This is from last week, so a bit more is done now, but I forgot to take an updated picture today.
HAED's had an anniversary sale last week and I RAK'ed a couple of people.  I love making someones day!  
And if you haven't seen, they are now on Instagram, (run by Michele's daughter).  Look for them at officialheavenandearthdesigns.
So many charts, so little time!!

That is all for today my friends!  Enjoy your craft time!

August 28, 2015

Today marks my 15 year anniversary at my job. I must say that I do enjoy my job. I like what I do and I like my boss too. Not a lot of people can say that. 

DD is in the half-time show at her schools football game tonight.  She will be in full uniform and everything!  I am so proud of her.  She is a little nervous, but not bad.

HAED is having a sale!  Go check it out here.

I am in the midst of updating my wish list, I have a page here that has links to all of the goodies I want.  :)  

Stitching hasn't been too exciting this week.  I only worked Saturday on Gir at home, and it wasn't for very long at all.  Ruh was worked on every day this week except for Wednesday.  He is coming along nicely.

A couple of other things are going on, but it would just be me complaining and I don't really want to do that right now... 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Happy Stitching!!

August 20, 2015

Good Morning!!  It's a good day so far here today.  I started work nice and early this morning, since M is out on vacation today and tomorrow.  A little extra OT on the paycheck is always nice.
Hubby had 62 hours of OT the last 2 weeks...  gives you an idea of how much I haven't been seeing him lately.  The other day he worked 6:00 am to 9:40 pm.  Eww!  He got home, slept for 5 hours and went back.  He is a wee bit tired right now and will be happy when he can sleep in.
DD has been registered for school, they don't start until the 25th.  She got her classes, which she is happy with.  We have to take her shopping for a few things, but we can take care of that this weekend.  She needs a new backpack, I think she wants a messenger bag, and a few clothes items.  Plus I need new socks!  HA!
I went and had an appointment with my new doctor.  She is very nice and I think I am going to like her.  I have been put on blood pressure medication, since my blood pressure was elevated.  It wasn't nearly as high when I had my appointment with her, but she wants to see what is going on.  I have to go back in 3 weeks for a blood test and then I see her again late September for a follow up.  My rash is basically gone, just need the spots where I broke open the skin from itching to heal and I should be good to go!  My doctor told me to start exercising, so I have starting using the elliptical we bought.  I forgot how much I love/hate that machine!  I have done each night this week.  The first 2 nights I did 10 minutes with a minute cool down.  Last night was 11 minutes with a minute cool down.  2 miles done last night.  Not bad in my opinion.  
On to stitchy news!  
Ruh is looking good.  Page 21 is coming along slowly.  I am almost done with the first color on the page.  Hopefully today or tomorrow I can finish it up and start the second color.
Gir is moving along nicely as well.  I haven't worked on it (her?) since Sunday since Monday and Tuesday were crazy and yesterday I was happy with NOT having a million things to do so just vegged after my workout and making dinner.  Here is Gir after Sundays stitching.
Gir update as of 8/16/15.
Isn't Gir coming along wonderfully?  I am a bit shocked my hubby hasn't told me he wants it, as his favorite color is orange!  LOL
I really do enjoy working on this one.  It is coming along rather quickly, compared to Ruh, and I like the feeling of quickness on it. 
And just because, here is a picture of Oreo (the black & while kitty) and Angel slumbering in their beds.
Angel & Oreo snoozing.
That's it for today.  Happy Stitching everyone!
