Mid Week Update

Wednesday, August 26, 2009.
I thought I'd do a bit of an update but got a bit distracted with watching, So You Think You Can Dance Canada and The Next Food Network Star, I totally forgot to type this up.

Things are slowly getting better here. My daughter starts school On Monday. I'm so excited for her. 3 more years and she will be in College YIKES... LOL

I have been working on Chatelaine Mystery XII The Caribbean. It is coming along so nicely. I have finished Part 4a. I have put it in sections so it doesn't seem overwhelming. I am now working on Part 6 which is the boat. Really debating on part of the water to do half x's or full x's What do you all think?? Here it is so far.

Well that is all for tonight. I'm off to bed. Sweet dreams to you all... Or Good Afternoon to all my Southern Hemisphere friends......

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.
