Monday Update

Monday, August 24, 2009.
I know not really a catchy title. But it is an update to say the least. I have not been feeling up to blogging as there was so much crap going on in my life. That I needed to take care of it before I felt up to blogging.
I'm not going to go into details just let's say I have a lot more time on my hands right now. SO I went back to stitching. At the begining of August I was working on Monopoly. I did end up finishing community chest and Illinois ave. So here are the pictures of that.





A few of my stitchy friends got a hold of me and wanted to do a stitch group. So I said sure why not. I really needed to get out. So I brought the supplies for working on a haed for my daughter it's the letter k but don't have any pictures on it cause I really didn't do much on it. I also brought my Mystery XII by Chatelaine as I really needed to work on it again as it was very poorly neglected. I did work on part 3 while I was there. But that dang Medallion of the flamingo really drove me nuts. I ripped it out 4 times. I did finally get it completed. I was going to go to the next part of part 2, but as there is 8 parts already released and part 9 will be released soon I thought I'd head to the part 4 and work on that on the right side. Then I'll work on Part 6 on the right side. With all that decsions I was printing fine on my other printer. Well I was being a clutz and spilt coffee all over my printed charts. Boy was I mad. So I tried printing them again on my coloured printer. It really didn't turn out so I went looking at the staples.ca website and lo and behold they have a laserjet printer on for 150.00 and it was a colour one too. WOOT off I go to the store sure enough they have it so I bought it. I love the printer, and now I can have better coloured copies. YAYYY. But back to the Chatelaine, I'm really like working on it again. So here is part 3 completed and the start of Part 4.





We went off as a family to Banff and had a wonderful time. I'll upload the pictures on a later date. We went to a great Restaurant called Grizzly Steak. It is pricey but the food was great. It is a fondue place and it was worth eating there. Anyways have a great week. Happy stitching.
