AND! Furthermore, I am going to sit and indulge in blog reading for maybe an entire hour as well!! I have over 300 feeds, and sometimes in the morning I will read a few posts here and there and it really gets my stitching fingers itching to go to town and So, tomorrow I am going to have a "me"day. Granted, by after a few hours, I will probably feel guilty for not using my time to work on homework, but I am dying to stitch! I will go without sleep if I have to!!! There are 24 hours in a day, and I can certainly spare 3 of them to do something I enjoy, right?

Anyway...stitching! oh yes, that! well this past week was "The Abbey's" turn to make an appearance, and I got quite a lot done. I am almost finsihed with the first of 9 pages. Yay!
No stitching got done yesterday as we were evacuated from our home on accoun tof LAke fort Phantom overflowing it's banks, and flying down a creek that is just 4 streets over from my house....the whole of abilene was mostly underwater...So Hubby and I went to his work and hung out until the evening when we decided to take a drive through the town and found most of the water receded and we were able to get into our home. and thank God!!! No flooding in our house!!! I was sure there would be, as when we'd left at 11 that mroning the water was up to the garage door and continuing on, but thankfully none got in the house.
Today I sorta had the itch to stitch and picked up several projects but set them back down as nothing appealed to me, as it is monday, that means a new project, and I have yet to decide what to work on...I am tempted to continue on with The Abbey...however school starts up this week again, so I only have a few days to really get much done at all, then I am anticipating very little to no stitching for awhile.
So, anyway, I have to get my scanner up and going again, before we left yesterday in a flurry of hurry we ran though and unplugged all our electronics and we got the computer up and running but the scanner is giving us problems. ugh!
Well I am off to get to some stitching, if I can find a project that calls my name! bye!

I finished August Freebie by Erica Micheals! I think it came out really cute. I did somehing different with the center of the flower, though, it called for long stitches coming out from the center, but I didn't think it would look very neat so I used the two different shades of brown to make a sort of checker pattern, and I think it looks more like a sunflower and the seeds in the center of a real sunflower than having long stiches coming out from the center.
This week I pulled out The Abbey to work on , and I am actually really enjoying it! I got alot of progress in yesterday, as DH took the modem to work with him, leaving me internetless for the day...very conducive to stitching!!
I also had a dentist appointment yesterday to get a filling, and one of my front teeth had some discoloration on it, and was sort of an odd shape, and she totally smoothed it out and made it really pretty! I'm so happy with it!!! And with the Air Force Ball next month, I will have my pretty new tooth to show off in our photos!!
Well, I have been trying to catch up on blog reading, I had over 200 feeds today...I have never had that much! Crazy! So, I have been on the computer since I got up about 2 hours ago, practically, and now I think unread feeds be damned...I'm going to go stitch! Although I REALLY am enjoying reading the blogs!!!
Oh! and one more thing! I got my "Howling At The Moon" chart in the mail yesterday...oh my startitis fingers are itching to start it right away,but I will be good!!! I think I shall try to finish something first...do my tiny little monthly freebies count? lol!

I did get some significant work done on my August Freebie, infact it is almost finished. Probably not much more than an hour left to work on it.
I think this week I will work on "The Abbey". All I know is:
NO MORE DOLPHINS!!!

After a few hours of workin gon this, though I got bored so pulled out Dolphin Domain, and put a few stitches in it too, however not quite enough to warrant a photo for right now. I think I will work on that one this week, and share a photo on Friday. I am thinking one week rotation should work well for me.I'm gonna try it. so, every monday I will switch out my focus piece. And of course I will be workin gon my monthly freebies as well. I still have not kitted up August or got any kind of start on it yet, though I have the pattern all ready to go, just got to pull threads and get to work on it, maybe today.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week!

and hubby as Anikan:
Hope you have a beautiful Sunday.
Oh yeah, and no stitching, as I forgot to take some with me, I read a little bit of HP but mostly we just cruised with the music blaring, singing along and acting like two teenagers in love! Today though I hope to get to my stitching though!

Yesterday I didn't get any stitching done, but I wanted to show a picture of the chart I want to buy from Herschners:
This is the picture taken off the Herschners website. I am so in love with wolves! And this one is GORGEOUS! I HAVE to have it. I got "The Gaze" awhile back...a wolf with an orange background, and there is another one that I want, but I can't find it on the website right now.
So, anyway, it is still early and I am just waiting for Hubby to get up and get going so we can leave for The city. I think I should try to kit something up for the ride, however, if we have good weather, chances are we will ride with the top down, which means, no stitching as it will be too windy!! Oh well, I'll take it and if I don't get to work on it then oh well, but better to have it and not get to it than to want it and not have it! I may also just take my Harry Potter book I am reading. I am now on #4. Did anyone else who read the Potter series find the beginning of 4 a bit dull and doldrum? Because I have been having a hard time getting into it like I did the first three, but hubby says to hang in there, it gets better. So, that is what I shall do.
Hope you all have a terrific weekend!!

Sorry the bottom part is a bit wrinkled. I am really enjoying this one... at first it was hard when I picked it up this time, because I had to frog out some area as I had made a bad boo boo on the last time I worked on it, which I think was the cause of my putting it down in the first place. But once I got it sorted out, I have been working on it steadily.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I don't know how much stitching I'll get done, seeing as how we are going to Fort Worth this weekend, but we'll see....maybe I'll take my August freebie with me, it's nice and small, to work on in the car...a two and half hour ride. Or maybe I'll start something new. I have been wanting to start something new for awhile...which so far I have been able to keep from doing, however, I don't know how much longer I can hold off. The thing is I work on such LARGE pieces, very few small ones, that I get bored of working on them after so long, so I have to switch every so often...and when I get sick of ALL of them, then I get startitis. I think I will try to be good though and wait it out until I have rotated through all my projects I have going now. You'd think that'd be variety enough for me, seeing as how I have about 20-25 projects in the workings right now. But then there is all that lovely stash just sitting in those drawers, taunting me!!! Maybe it is time to start Christmas stitching? Hmmm...NOW there's an idea....
I have really been going to town on "Dare to Dream". When I'm not reading HP. I am now on the 4th book! They are such fast reads!!! I love them! I am so glad they have gotten longer as the series goes on...more to the story! So, as I finish each book me and DH have been watching the corresponding movie, so last night we bought and watched "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" again. We had a really bad thunderstorm while we watched it too, which was sorta befitting to the movie itself! I kept thinking about picking up my stitching, but never got to it, as I love a good storm and watched the movie with the lights out so I could enjoy watching the wind and lightning and rain out the window! The thunder was so bad at times I thought the windows were gonna vibrate until they broke!
Well, so I wanted to share these pictures with you: The first off is July freebie by Erica Micheals:
AAAKKK! Blogger is not wanting to upload photos today! Stupid thing! Ok, well, I guess I will post pictures later...again! Sorry! Well, I guess it's alright as I need to get going and study some more before my test at 1:00. 5 short hours!!! It's nice to think that in 7 short hours this will all be over!!! Then no school for a 23 days! Yippee!
To celebrate hubby is taking me stash shopping and then we are going to Fort Worth and going to the Science Museum there, for the Star Wars exhibit that is traveling the US right now. So, We are excited about that! my parents took my nephew to go see it at their museum in Anaheim about two months ago, and they were gloating that my hubby (who is a die hard star wars fan) didn't get to see it, (jokingly teasing him!) but now it's here so we get to gloat back! He he!
