Christmas 2010

Wednesday, December 29, 2010.
Well Christmas has come and gone and it was a good holiday. Everyone got what they wanted and that is good. Also did Magic of Christmas again this year and had a great time doing that. When I was doing it this year I thought of Rene from I-Love-Cross-Stitch yahoo group. Here is the pictures.It is a lot of fun and we all enjoy it all the time :)

For stitching I've been working on Monopoly. I will not be updating pictures of that till I am done. I am almost there. I'm just finishing Luxury Tax and then have Community Chest, Boardwalk, Mediterranean Avenue, and Go, then just the center and I'm done. I know I will get it done before Saturday then I get to do all 15 new starts lol. I got my Winter exchange in the mail today and will take a picture of it tomorrow to update as I have another parcel at the post office that I have to pick up. I want to thank Vickie S for the wonderful package.

I do have a new blog that I have started. It is called 2011 SAL Blog and will be for anyone who just wants to share their stitching and get encouragement to finish or start stitching. If you want to join let me know the blog address is http://2011salblog.blogspot.com/

Also changed the look of my blog Leia Mais... means read more

I hope you all enjoy your stitching and New Year.

Busy Month

Tuesday, December 21, 2010.
I know I know I haven't updated in a while. Was working so much that I couldn't think straight. I then decided I had enough of the JOB and went my separate way. I needed to find something that I really wanted to do with my life. So the answer was clear and that I needed to go back to school so I went ahead and applied to be a Professional Legal Assistant. I am just waiting to see if I get the funding. The application was put in today but I'm currently waiting with crossed fingers lol.

As for Christmas I am ready and cannot wait for it all to be over. Tomorrow I have to make Perogies for Saturdays dinner. I am actually for once looking forward to it. The family again is doing Magic of Christmas and I am really excited that we are doing it. I will be bringing my camera this year and taking pictures :)

My Daughters decided to put up the tree really early this year. I think that was the whole reason I am looking forward to Christmas, here is the picture of the tree:

Onto stitching. I am still working on Monopoly and I am hoping I can finish it before the new Year. I need to have at least one finish this year lol. Here are all my pictures of Monopoly:

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, Yule, and Holidays.
Hugs to you all

For my stitching I am still working on Monopoly. I didn`t feel I got a lot done but in reality I did as all I did all weekend when I was off was pretty much sleep so here is what it looks like now.
I am hopping that I will be done this in 2 weeks then I can move onto my HAED as that is my next project to stitch.

I did have a good weekend however a bunch of us went to Ranchmans it was a lot of fun and we all plan on going again. They have a mechanical bull there and two of my friends rode the Bull lol. I'll probably do it next time.

Happy Halloween :) Stitching Update and Contest

Sunday, October 31, 2010.
What a wonderful day this is for me. It is Samhain which is classified as a New Year. I love today as everything seems perfect. I'm not big into the trick or treating. I do love the costumes the kids wear as a lot of them look so cute and there is a lot of thought into them. My daughters were no exception to the rule. First I'll show you a picture of my Biological Daughter. She did all her own make up and that I'm proud of. They were able to wear their costumes to school on Friday. This is what my other Daughter *my daughter's best friend that lives with us* dressed up as. They had a great time. I actually did her make up as it was easier for me. She bought that black stuff that goes around the eyes but my daughter had black eyeshadow so I used that instead and it turned out a lot better.

Now for stitching. I have been working on Monopoly this week again and like I said will continue working on it until I get bored or finish it. Well I finished another square this week. I finished Just visiting/In Jail. I am glad to get that done. I really hated the backstitching on that square but it's done lol. Here is a picture of the square and of it overall. Another one I didn't show you that I stitched a while ago is Oriental Courage. I actually finished the dragon part of the design. Here is where I stopped on it.

Now for the contest. You have until November 16th to enter. I will put until then as I'll add my daughter's Sweet 16 into the draw. She turns 16 on November 15th. So that gives you 2 weeks. You can mention about it on your blog. What I need from you. List One chart, it has to be a current Chart not an out of print chart, on your MUST WANT wishlist and put it in your comment post. You have to include the designer as I need to know who the designer is. And that will be the prize that you win. Plus a few little extras too. Which I'm not going to tell you what that part is lol. I love the element of Surprise :) All you need to do to enter is to be a follower of my blog, You can post on your blog about the contest, and comment on this post. That is all you need to do. Good luck to you all :)

And thank all 107 followers for following my blog :)


I will leave you with a picture from a friends blog on what they did to the pumpkins

Hi everyone... Here's a little update on what is going on here. I have not dropped off the face of the earth at all. Just been busy with work. I am working at KFC/Taco Bell and just got promoted to Shift Manager. On my way to an Assistant Manager. I'm looking forward to that. I am slowly getting back to my stitching so will find time to do an update on that soon when I have something worthy to show. I am moving my bedroom to the basement as I need more room to relax in. I have 3/4's of my room moved just need to move more. Kids are all doing good in school having a few issues but that is normal in Highschool. Please send thoughts to my Grandmother she has a nasty cold and I am worried about her as she is not getting any younger. I love that woman more than anything and is a great roll model for me and my daughter to follow. I am trying to get caught up with blogs again and will get there eventually. You will all hear from me before Halloween lol.

Sunday !!

Sunday, August 1, 2010.

Ok I wasn't going to update but I had to share lol. I ended up getting extremely bored of working on elfland. Just something about it made me not really feel like working on it so I switched it to my Mirabilia called Mermaid of the Pearls. I am looking forward to it getting completed. So here are two pictures of Mermaid of the Pearls. Here is a close up of where I was working on. Sorry it is so wrinkly as I hold it in hand.Another picture I wanted to show you is the new puppy. His name is Max and he is a Black Lab crossed with a Nose Pointer. He is extremely smart and sweet. Just have to still get him out of his bitting phase lol. As I said in my previous post I am leaving on Wednesday for Winnipeg. I'm going ahead with my original plans and moving on with my life. This needs to be done. I cannot wait to get a place a job and settled wish me luck :)
Anyways back to my stitching I decided to switch back to Advice from a Caterpillar. My Goals for August are posted on my blog on the left hand side. Have a great week

Wouldn't you know it two weeks in a row I updated lol. Mind you I am a couple days late. Just was really tired from work on Thursday and when I got home from work on Friday it was dark so I just left it for today. A lot has been going on here lately we are trying to get that basement cleaned up so I can move down there and then I'll have my very own space. It has been really hot here lately up to the Mid 80's I know it isn't hot for some of you but when you don't normally get this hot usually stays in the 70's which is nice it is different.
I have been trying to think of what I want to do with my life and which direction I want it to take and to be honest I'm stumped. I would love to go back to school but I'd also love to have my own business but we shall see. I have however figured out what I will be stitching come January 1st and I'm not usually that organized. I will put a list up in my blog when I get it all written down. As for my stitching I have decided to rotate only 3 projects until I can get them completed and then I will be replacing them with ones I have on the go. I have figured life is way to short not to get some finishes up on my wall.

So for stitching this week I have decided to work on Monopoly. I was going to work on the Chatelaine but as it's been hot I really do not want the oils in my hands to transfer to those beautiful silks. Plus it's easier to wash monopoly lol. I told my idea on how I want to frame it to my daughter's father and he agrees that it will look amazing :) The area I worked on this week was Electric Avenue, St. Charles Place, Marvin Gardens and Go To Jail. I would of gotten the last square done if it wasn't for the fact I played a little wow. I have decided to put a time limit on my Wow playing so I can get my stitching done lol. Here is the pictures of Monopoly.

So not to bad progress on Monopoly. I work on it again on the 30th of July to the 5th of August.
So this week will be Elfland I hope to have it finished either this week or the next time I pick it up. Here is where I left of. I am now on the last page of this one.
Well that's my update for this week. I hope you all enjoy it as I enjoyed stitching :) Stay tune to this blog for some up and coming giveaways as I went through some of my stash.

Winners and Update

Monday, March 15, 2010.
Well as promised here is the winners of my Draw. The First chart Which is Dream a Little Dream goes to Kathy A and the second winner of te Britty Cup Kitties is Carolyn NC I will email you ladies to get your address' and whne I find where I put the charts I will mail them too you as I put them in a safe place as I was getting my bed moved into my room. Now onto my stitching update. This week was a rough stitching week cause my rotation was getting boring. I did stitch on 3 things. I stitched on Witchy Washy. Here is a picture of where I have gotten:

I also stitched on Oriental Courage. I did get a lot of black done still have quiet a bit to go here is the picture for that:

The week before I forgot to take a picture of my Chatelaine well here it is: All I have left on this is the half stitches in the coral and then only 3 more fish.

I got bored of stitching the Chatelaine and everything else so I started something new. I started HAED's Advice From a Caterpillar by Scott Gustafson. I had so screwed up when I started it the first time so I started over. It wasn't much but it's all good. So now I have been working on this since the 10th of March and have completed a lot. I am doing the UFO/SWIP SAL on the HAED board I have till Friday to work on it but I'm enjoying it so much I may keep going but we shall see. Here is where I started on this design for Friday: And this is where I am at right now so far: So I will keep going on this design.
As for the job front I am suppose to be in an orientation tomorrow but I did not receive any phone calls. So I talked to my daughter's father and he said just show up and see what they say as I cannot get a hold of the person who will be my manager. So that is what I will do. I will let you all know how it is going.
Happy Stitching
