Christmas stockings 5 and 6 and the start of Card #3!

So, yesterday was Halloween. I sat and ate Halloween candy, while watching dvd's of Ghost hunter and stitching...Christmas stuff!!! I feel like it was a game of "What does not belong in this picture?" But, I got alot done so...hurray for productivity!

First up is Christmas Card #3....and as you can see, even from the tiny bit here, I have decided not to stick with stitching that little snowman over and over and over....and over! I just couldn't! I didn't think I could...I knew I'd get bored and need to mix it up, so now I have decided to work on ones that have a folkartsy angel and the words "Joyous Noel", I will probably do 2 of these then a different pattern...I have to have keeps life spicey! LOL

 And here are the littlest stockings #'s 5 and 6! I enjoyed these ones alot! They stitched up pretty quickly! I'm half way through with this series, so six more of these little cuties to do, then I have another set of "Tiny's"...I think they are called "Tiny Christmas Critters"....a bunch of little animals doing Christmas things! LOL.... Then onto the next series....Just gonna work my way through the whole book! =)

A few posts back a few people asked me what book I was stitching these ornaments from and it is called "Christmas Ornaments" By Kooler Design Studio, Inc. 78 Cross Stitch designs."

Thank you for reading! I hope you all had a safe Halloween, and those who were affected by storm Sandy, I pray you are all ok, with minimal damage, or even better yet! None at all!

Littlest Stocking #4 finished, and #5 started!

Well, I did it! I finished Stocking #4 this weekend! So, now I just have 8 more to go to finish this series! 

I also made a small start on Stocking #5:
So, I got a little bit of stitching in this weekend! It feels really good to be enjoying stitching again!! I have decided to take a bit of an internet break for the next 2 days and see if I can get some good quality things done. I think that is my problem...spending toooo much time on the computer, browsing, and looking, and nothing is getting done, which frustrates me, but then I realize just how much time I spend sitting in front of the computer and I think I just need to cut WAAAY back on internet stuff.  I just have too much to do.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Stocking Ornaments 3 and's finished, one is not!

Well, I think the stitching bug is back!!!  Although, I must admit, I spent most of the week on these 2 stockings, and as you can see, I only got one finished! I think I have just been really frustrated with lack of free time to stitch now! In past years I stitched sooo much more, and now I feel as though I don't have enough time to get everything done, so I just give up altogether! LOL...Oh well, enough bellyaching about that! I have to just be happy that I got done what I did!

But, sometimes, don't you wish everyone and every life demand would just go away, so you could get more stitching done?  Oh well.

Well, last weekend we took Alyssa to a birthday party, and she caught a cold while she was there, and now I have it, and so does hubby!!! So, I don't think this weekend is gonna be much fun! Probably a lot of loafing around and blowing/ wiping of the noses! I am really gonna try to get more of these tiny stockings done this weekend! We shall see!

Hope you have a great one!

Coming Home For the Holidays/SAL update

Well, here is my update on Coming Home for the Holidays. My SAL with Julie. I can't believe her and I have been SALing on this for a YEAR!! I just realized that! It's slowly, and I mean SLOOOOOWLY, coming along! LOL....Still been in a stitchy rut! Man! I just have too much energy to do anything, like settle in with stitching. As soon as I sit down, get everything settled, my needle threaded, I'm ready to pop up and go do something else! I feel like I have ADHD! All I want to do is sit and read. I guess cause that doesn't take much effort, to pick up and set down. I don't want to stitch, I don't want to work on my pen paling, writing letters and stitching are just taking up tooo much thought, and not enough energy! LOL. And I think the only reason that this is, is because of  what I wanna do and AM doing well are my Turbo Jam work outs!! I am still LOVING it! I'm on day 37! And it's so much fun! So! I work out hard every day and I just don't have the want to to just SIT. Sad, since all my favorite hobbies include sitting on my butt, doing something. I just keep hopping up to do a  house chore, or play with the baby, or go for a random walk around the block! But these work outs ARE working! I am starting to look good! Not so "fluffy" (Ok....fat....)

I figure I can stitch and do all my "Sit down" hobbies after I lose my weight!  So for now I'm focusing on weight loss, and being more healthy!!

So, I'm sorry if I'm not around here posting as much as normal. I just don't have as much to share, since I'm not stitching as much!

Sorry this photo is so blurry.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are taking Alyssa to her first birthday party!  I'm sure she'll enjoy it! The person who invited us has 7 kids, and 4 of them have birthdays this month!!! So she is throwing a BIG Birthday/Halloween bash for them. Alrighty, off to get some things done, before we're off to celebrate 4 Rugrats and Halloween!
