February in Review

Sunday, February 28, 2010.
As this month draws to a close so does the 2010 Olympic Games. Congrats to all Countries that participated in the Olympics. I am proud that you came to my Country and Proud that you have the guts to do what so many dream of doing. I am truely a Proud Canadian today as we have won 14 Gold Medals and we have set a new record. My favorite part of the Olympics is our first gold medal won at home and the Women and Men's hockey team again defeating the United States in Hockey. Both games were great and really close. I am so glad that we support both Nations in Hockey. This is what peace is all about. Thank you for coming to Canada and you all are most welcome to come again.
As for stitching I really didn't get a lot accomplished, as I was away for about a week in my home town. I did finish the Monopoly square seen here:
So this month I'll be working on Water Works.

Also worked on Chatelaine Mystery XII. I almost have part 7 done. I will have part 7 done this month and will also finish up part 2. Here is the picture:

This month I also worked on Elfland. I was 100 stitches shy of my 2000 stitches goal. So March's goal is to finish the page. Here is the picture:
I also worked on Oriental Courage. I didn't get the page completed on this one either but I'm close. So March's goal is to finish the page. Here is where I got to:
I also started to do an Olympic challenge with the 2muchxs yahoo group. I did not get it done as I was totally plagued with the frogs. I do plan on having it finished this month. Maybe during the Paraolympics. Who knows lol. Here is where I left off:
This month I also received my Valentine's Exchange. It showed up while I was out of town so it was nice to get it when I did get home. Here is what Pam gave me :
I also received my PIF and a Rak from Dawn. I received my first Biscornu and it's my favorite colour as well. Here is what I received:
A lot has gone on in my personal life as well. I put my relationship with Kris on hold as right now I need to focus on me and getting me on my own feet. I am also looking at going back to school as well so we shall see how that goes. I have applied at a lot of jobs even if it seems I'm not qualified for them but you never know unless you don't apply. I will be back out tomorrow to apply to more and also on Wednesday. Wish me Luck.
Happy Stitching.

Tuesday Update

Tuesday, February 23, 2010.
Well I made it back safe and sound. The trip was uneventful going out but eventful going. I almost became a hood ornament on a trucker trailer. He was passing a sanding truck and didn't realize I guess or wasn't paying attention that I was there. But after that it became uneventful again.

As for stitching I only worked on Witchy Washy. Wow what a fustrating design to stitch lol. I am working on 36 ct 2 over 2 SMF Hypnotic. I had to redo the tree 5 times before it was right. I am so fustrated. I started that on the 12th and hope to finish by the 28th as that is when the olympics end. As for my other goals probably won't accomplish two of them but that's ok :) Here is the picture of Witchy Washy

Today I was working on My Chatelaine for UFO Tuesday. Will show you a picture of that on Sunday :) Happy Stitching

I am taking some stitching with me. I am taking Oriental Courage and also Witchy Washy. I just started witchy washy tonight for the Olympic challenge I have to start it at the beginning of the olympics and finish it by the end of the Olympics. I felt life was too short not to start something lol.. I will be taking a lot of pictures on my way out and back so it will be cool. I am also taking my laptop so I can at least post to my blog. Unfortunately there will be no pictures as I cannot find my cord for my camera. Oh well..

Wow Sunday

Sunday, February 7, 2010.
Cannot believe it is Sunday already. It has been a busy week here at Chez Terri lol. First bit of news is I am offically heading to Ontario to pick up my daughter's BF WOOT. I will be leaving either on the 12th or 13th as my daughter is off the week after so she is coming with me so I can spend time with my family in Thunder Bay before I head to the Sue. I am taking my Camera and will be taking pictures and I am taking my laptop. Have to find the cord for my camera lol.

This week's stitching has been awesome except Tuesday. Not sure what happened there lol. So here is my stitching for the week. I already showed you my January Finish for the Exchange. I was so fustrated with the finishing that I just cliped it to the card and told Emily that she can take it off and finish it the way she wanted. I was so mad at myself I really tried to put eyelits in but I was so upset. So I will stitch something and try again :) I worked on Monopoly and finished States Avenue on the Monday I am glad I got that finished. Here is the Picture:

After Monopoly I worked on my UFO Tuesday. The Yahoo Group I hang out at a lot lol has UFO Tuesday ILCS :) For that I put my Chatelaine Mystery XII as my UFO as I really want to get it done. I didn't really do much stitching but I hope to get a lot more done this Tuesday. Here is the Picture:

The next project I worked on was my Elfland it is a SAL this Thursday one week to Friday the next week. I am really loving this design. I am almost at my goal already but even if I meet it I'll keep going and finish the page. I have a feeling I will have the page done by Wednesday and if that is the case my Mermaid of the Pearls will slide in until I get the next page in April. Here is the Picture:

Yesterday was the Virtual Stitch In. Again I had a great time. I sat here in front of my computer as that is the only place I have to stitch and worked on Oriental Courage. I did over 600 stitches and getting close to finish page 1 on it. I love this design and it is going to look good in my darling Kris' book when I finish it off and send it to him. Here is a before picture to show you how much I got done: And here is the After on where I stopped last night: 600 stitches plus some that was a lot of stitching. I will be taking this project with me when I go to Thunder Bay as this one only has 11 colours and takes up very little space :) Today I'll be working on Elfland and tomorrow between laundry loads I'l lowork on OC. Anyways I hope you all have a great week and See you soon.

Month In Review.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010.
Well January went really fast. Saw a lot of ups and downs. Everyone here has been sick at least once. A few twice. I am thankful I've only been sick once. *Knock on Wood*

January saw me actually complete my goals at the first of the month so I decided to put an extra item into the mix. That extra item is the bookmark I'm working on for my dear love Kris. I gave up on hiding it from him as he loves my stitching and wants to learn so of course I sent him some to do :) Here is the before picture of Oriental Courage. And here is the picture of it now

I also worked on Elfland this month and my goal was 1000 stitches and was extremely attainable so I intended to stop there. Here is the picture of it with 1000 stitches:

Well I couldn't stop I loved working on this so much that I did another 1000 stitches on it. So I completed 2000 stitches total on this. I am getting a bit of a ripple effect as there is so much bulge on the back but will fix when I stretch it which is great. I will be giving this to my daughter who now is getting into reading. Here it is after 2000 stitches:

Another project I worked on was my Mystery XII The Caribbean. I love the colours on this. They are so vibrant and bright and rich I love it. I finished part 11a in January and it is looking fantastic. I love it so far. Here is part 11a: And here is it over all:

The last project I worked on was Monopoly. I am right on track with my goals. I did finish the February square already which I am happy about :) but you will get to see that on Sunday lol. Here is Ventor Avenue: And here it is overall:
So my goals for February are:
1. Finish States Avenue on Monopoly *check done lol*
2. Finish Part 7 on Mystery XII *working on that now*
3. Finish 2000 Stitches on Elfland *that one is up next*
4. Finish Page 1 on Oriental Courage
I also had a finish in January but as that was for the Valentine's day Exchange on the ILCS group I will share that when the person receives it in the Mail. I sent it yesterday so I hope she receives it in plenty of time :) The last photo I thought I'd share with all of you is one of my precious puppy. Well he's really not a puppy anymore he is 8 but he is such a sweet spoilt dog and he is handsom. Here is Thor:
He is a true Canadian dog as in Canada and I know there is about 100 shops in the Eastern US of Tim Hortons he is a Timbit dog which is just the doughnut holes for those who don't have Timmies. He is bugging me for some more as he knows he has 2 left on the counter lol...
Happy stitching
