So, my goal was to finish this in September...now I have a question...if I finish it today before 10 pm I should still have it done by September, by American time, so the question is...does it count as being finished in September?!?! But it is already October 1st here in Japan, so I am not too sure, what do you think? But as you can see I still have a little bit left to go. When I picked this one up on Tuesday, it wasn't even half finished, so I think I have done pretty good for only two days of stitching.
Well, that is about it for me today. I will post goals in my next post and hopefully I will have a finished bookmark to share with you then too!
Can you believe HOW much I have posted this month?! The last time I had more than 10 posts was in April of '07 I think. Wow! My blogoversary is coming up this month as well as hitting my 500th post, I'm almost there,only 3 more posts to go, I think.

So, I decided that since Halloween is quickly coming upon us, in about a month or so, I would try to finish up two that I started a long time ago, (check the first few posts in this blog for how long ago! lol) : Freight Night Friends, and Midnight Watchman. I know, I still have "I love you" and also my other BAP in the works as well, but I'm just thinking ahead...
Here is a photo as they stand now, poor headless scarecrow guy! lol! Please forgive the creases, they've been in that drawer for a LOOONG time!
I also had a question regarding the sidebar on blogger.
How do you strike through. I was going ot keep my WIP list up and just strike through each project as I went along, but when I tried to put the code (
) it didn't work, it kept saying this HTML code not allowed or something, am I doing something wrong? I know I've used it on other blogs of mine, but I think this is the first time I've tried it on this blog, and it doesn't seem to be working, can anyone help me? I would greatly appreciate any help you could give!
Well, I have been doinking around on Facebook all morning, so I need to get my rear in gear and get some things done!
Oh! and I have a happy dance...not a stitchy one, though. Well, I've been telling you all about my ipod and my addiction to walking/jogging with music...I lost 5 pounds this week!!!! I don't know if that is the cause of it but...I don't know what else it could be, I'm still eating the same amount. 5 pounds in one week! Wow! I was amazed!!
Ok, I just tried the whole strike through thing
it works but, I can't get it to work on my side bar!! grrr...frustration!

Well when I went diving into my deep WIP drawer last week I found it, and thought "I AM going to finish this! It's an old piece and even has that late 70's early 80's feel to it, but I am gonna finish it and give it to him! So I pulled this out to work on this month. I am looking to finish it this month.
When I first pulled it out, all that was done on it was the blue and red "O" and a little bit of the yellow "O" above the red and blue one. So, I have put in a good amount of stitching on it since I pulled it back into the light!
This one was a small kit I got from Walmart, It's by "The Sugarplum Express", it's a "Munchkins" kit, and is stitched on a piece of 5x7 cream colored 14 count aida.
And here is my progress on "Birdhouses". More than half done. I am anticipating there will be 2 finishes by the end of this month, possibly more if I get these ones done!
I also have not been posting as much because I got SIMS 3!!! And have been playing for houuuurrrs! Also I just got Seasons 8 & 9 of ER on DVD, so been watching them, and I stitch while I watch, but I don't seem to stitch as fast. I am also been trying to read more and have finished a few more books since I last posted.
So I have still been stitching quite a bit, but just not posting. I plan on sharing the other three projects after I have completed the 5 hours I have set as goals for the month, and if I don't finish the 5 hours then I will just post them at the end of the month!
Thank you all for reading!! Hope you have a great weekend!
My monthly goals are going great, so far! I am more than half finished with "Birdhouses", and I have put in 1 hour each on Howling, The Abbey, and CH4TH. except for CH4TH, I have 2 hours in on. And I have put in some progress on "I love you" which is the "TBA" WIP I wrote about.
Sorry no photos in this post,but soon, I promise!
Goal progress (hourly goals):
The Abby 1/5
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
1) Finish "Birdhouses of America Unite"
2) Work on The Abbey (5 hours)
3) Put in at least 5 hours on "Coming Home for the Holidays"
4) Put in at least 5 hours on "Howling at the Moon"
5) Work on an OLD WIP (to be announced) at least a few hours
6) Try to work out a rotation
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments!!! I enjoyed working on BoInk soooo much!!! I couldn't put it down!! =) Thinking like that makes it so hard for me to work a rotation, because I will get obsessed with one project and the rest just sorta get lost in the shuffle!! Oh well. I will work on it.
I also want to start reading more. I am almost to my "60 book read this year" goal, but I have been so into my stitching lately that I have not been reading as much, need to remedy that. I am just glad that I am not working now. I have so much free time, which I am loving, I need to sort of work out a daily schedule so I get all my hobbies in...poor me...have to make a SCHEDULE to do hobbies...lol...Oh well. I love it though and am enjoying hitting blogs like crazy. =) You are so inspirational.
