Blah blah blah

This is so pretty and yet I am so frustrated because I want to be finished!! I want more stitching time!!! I demand it! (Anyone listening??? LOL)

I no longer anticipate a finish by the end of the week, but we'll see! I still can't figure out what else to start, I'm mired in indecision. I'd like to tell myself I can only choose from that big list I showed on this blog in January(/http://stitchesnstones2.blogspot.com/2006/01/2006-goals_16.html) but with all the Nashville new releases I really need to include some of those as well!!

Dogs are doing well, Watty's eye looks a little red which worries me but we are keeping up with drops and ointments every 1/2 hour or so like the vet said, and there is nothing else we can do!

I volunteered to give blood today, maybe to reward myself I can play stash tonight! I need to log my new charts into my spreadsheet and maybe even start organizing all the leaflets...now if only no one will notice all the other housework that should be done instead ;l)

Stash Spring Cleaning!

Went to the rodeo, one of my favorite places!
Not too many photos taken, I was too busy trying to keep up with everything.
Played in my magazines this weekend, I am trying to clean my office (yes, the office that has had no floor for several years, the one that I've never seen clean since we moved in). The benefit of cleaning the office is I get to play in long lost stash while under the guise of cleaning ;l) I went through all my old mags and found some great samplers I'd never noticed before (taste was different back then). My plan was to store all the mags except for a few that I would keep out and put in the "must stitch soon" folder/stack/pile. I found quite a few though so I don't think this method of cleaning is truly effective! What I really want to do (and have so far talked myself out of it) is to go through all my leaflets, etc. and put group them by designer. I normally keep them this way but haven't gone through them for about 3 years and I know they are every which way. The problem is at last count I have over 2,000 leaflets (not counting kits, etc.) so this is going to involve at lot of space and time, but it will be so fun! No doubt my "must stitch soon" stack will grow when I get around to doing this. It really isn't "cleaning" though, just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic!

Got these because I have the best DH in the world :o)

They were a just because gift for getting through the last few weeks. Aren't they gorgeous???

WIP and pet update

Here's a really rotten photo of my WIP as of today. I think this is only the third day I've gotten to work on it since I share my lunch times with cub scout planning these days. I'm hoping by next weekend to have it done. I can't seem to get started on anything else at the moment, too many projects to figure to get started on just one. There is one by Plum Street calling my name but it's rather large. Also it's been too busy to stitch, we now have two sick dogs. Cody (see big white fluffy a few pics below) spent Monday night at the animal hospital with a severe life-threatening infection. Many $ later he is much better and will make a full recovery. Watty's eye will never see again but we still hope she can keep it. We've increased the drops & gel to about every half an hour and will see the vet in about 10 days.

Thanks everyone for your comments, I know I will get a few minutes soon to get to read your blogs!

new WIP

Terrible picture, but at least you can see what I've been up to on and off this week. It's a freebie from Anne les petites de croix, absolutely lovely! I'm doing it over one thread on 40ct. Lakeside Linen Vintage Aqua fabric with GAST threads.

Back from Nashville

Has a great time, so glad it is over though! I really dislike traveling, almost as much as I hate coming home to all the things I left undone so I could go travel ;o) Here's a little peek at market, I love the hotel they hold it at.

We had a successful market and got to see some sights as well: the civil war battlefield/cemetary in Murfreeboro, attended the Opry at the historic Ryman theater (with front row seats for Lorrie Morgan, Restless Heart, Suzy Boguss, and more), and got to stay a night at the Opryland Hotel which was gorgeous. Lots of photos, mostly of food ;o) Came home with plenty of goodies since we hit the Opry Mall as well as market.

My little watty dog got in a fight with our Joey dog while I was gone and was blinded in one of her eyes. We are hoping the eye itself will avoid infection so we won't have to remove it. She may have fractures and/or bone fragments in her skull as well. She is as peppy and happy as usual so at least she is not in much (if any pain). We've got her on tons of meds, drops, and gels to try to get the swelling down and avoid complications. Her eye is sewed shut, giving her a permanent wink. Things are pretty chaotic at home, but I don't feel getting rid of a dog is an option so we'll have to get creative to keep everyone healthy and safe. The whole thing breaks my heart, especially since the two dogs often have a tiff and this time Joey seems to have hit just the right spot to cause critical damage.
