Busy, Busy, Busy

That is what I have been lately, mostly with schoolwork, but with life stuff as well. Stitching, of course! and reading. I have not yet finished HP #7, as I decided to take a break, and read some other books I had in my TBR list...I finished two this past week! which is awesome, I am still working on my 50 book goal this year, and after I finish HP I will only have 20 more to go, I think the goal is attainable!! Yippee!

Stitching wise I have been working on my Erica Micheal's freebies. I am working on one of her monthly series, the one with the checkered backgrounds...January. I am almost done, and stupid me! I put off working on the white of the snowman until very last, and I hate working white on white, and so if I have alot of white to do I will mix it up and work it in every other thread or so, so I don't end up doing all the white all at once, and what do you think I did? I put off Mr. Snowman until last, and now I'm just going along bleakly working white on white forever days!

But I am thinking I will try to finish this one up today and get to work on mini sampler letter "B" I am almost done with A, I just have two more algerian eyelets to do in the corners, which I am finding to be a bit of a challenge on Aida, but what the heck? I'm almost there!

Thank you all for your encouraging comments on my schoolwork...and! I have great news! you know in my last post I was super upset about the way my studying was going for my test, well I took the test and felt iffy about it, but I got my results back this week, I GOT A "B"!!!!! a low B, but I passed!!! So I must have retained more than I thought...phew.

So, anyway, I think I shall get going on my stitching, and try to get Mr.Albino finished. lol!

Oh and my scanner? Yes, we have seen it off to Scanner heaven, but we don't know when we'll be able to get a new one. It could be awhile...sorry guys!

Oh and on emore thing, Lauren you asked if i was working the E.M freebies in Rainbow Gallery, I am doing them in DMC. I wish I could do them in R.G but I'm not that rich! lol!

Congrats on your grade! Can't wait to see your Erica Michaels pieces - I am sure they are lovely!

Lauren said...

Oh, I'd love if you'd post your conversions for the freebies! I've always admired them, but I just don't have the eye to convert them (and I think my stash money would be better spent elsewhere than buying those RG fibers I'd only use once!)

Congrats on your test! I hope you continue doing as well, or better! I'm sure the studying will get easier as you get back into it.

I've never tried RG threads. Bet they are nice to work with.

I've recently finished my HP reading marathon. I waited until all the books were out then read them all in a row. Now I know what my kids have been talking about all this time, lol!
