I am pretty tired tonight. Somehow it was a hard week. Today after work our department went out for a drinks and now I am kind of happy to be back home.
Tomorrow we will leave home early for a trip to the States border to get the final paperwork for our permanent residence done. Perhaps I will be able to stitch a few stitches in the car....

I stitched nearly the whole left side of Home is Where You Hang Your Needlework. It is coming along nicely....but the picture is aweful. Sorry.
If I stick to my plan I will have to stitch on Jeannette Douglas's Take Time to Quilt but right now I am not in a bit stitching mood. We will see....

This week Derek has to work tuesday through thursday nights from 7pm - 7am. Usually I get a lot of stitching done if he is not here. I just wonder why it makes a difference for my stitching if he is here in the evenings or not.
Anyways, I think I will stitch on Home is Where You Hang.... tonight.
See you soon....

We got a bit more snow today. I still love the snow. It is so much more nicer to see the snow falling than the rain.....wave to my friends in Germany. LOL
So, what am I going to stitch on tonight? Is it already tuesday????? Than it will be From Sea to Shining Sea.
See you later....

I never took my needlework to work to stitch on it during my lunchbreak. Today I decided to give it a try. We are a usually a crowd of about 10-15 people having lunch together and so I had a lot of explaining to do...but I think they will get used to it pretty soon and for me it is an extra half an hour of stitching time every day after eating my lunch. :)
And as a lot of other non-stitching people some of them thought stitching is just something for ol'ladies....hey, I'm getting there..... LOL

I spend some nice time with Home is Where You hang your needlework and I like very much how it turns out.
In real it is bot as dark as on the picture but the scanner doesn't want to make a lighter pic. Maybe the camera does once it will be finished.
On Yuko's wonderful blog I found a link to Dovile. She has a wonderful blog, too and does some awesome stitching....and she enabled me to buy some more STASH. :) Don't miss this one!
I finished the last pages last night and was a bit sad for the book ending so soon.
Do you enjoy the Stephanie Plum series as much as I do?

This was my 2. finish this year. It took me 3 years from the first stitch to the last.... I don't know exactly why. It was very interesting and actually a lot of fun. The most scary and challenging stitch were the cups of the acorns. I know I didn't do a good job on those. But anyway, they are finished now :)
by Indigo Rose
stitched with Caron Waterlilies
on 32ct. Permin shell
I hope to find a nice frame for Catherine Agnes but I am pretty sure it won't be easy....

Even though I felt pretty bad I went to work this morning but after I finished the most important stuff I left work and went back home and to bed.
I hope to feel better soon....

Thank you for the get-well wishes. I think today was the worst day. Hopefully I will be a lot better tomorrow.
Not too much stitching for me tonight but early bedtime...

This is how Derek found me sitting in the living room surrounded by my stitching supplies when he got up...Hopefully nobody realizes that I am still wearing my PJ's underneath the knitted jacket.... ;)
Quite recently I got my order from "The Needle & I". A complete kit with all the necessary equipment to start my first canvas needlework. I have to admit that I am a little bit intimidated...that's why I got it out of my cupboard to have a second look at it. Is there somebody stitching the same thing or at least something similar?
OK it was a bad idea to take the picture before noon on the westside window.....
Last night I made a very good progress on From Sea to Shining Sea. At least compared to my usual stitching portions. I don't even know why...I was on a roll. LOL
And now I am going to start the day off with some stitching on the sofa :)

I searched through my WIP box for something to catch my eye and I came up with "And a Forest Grew" The last time I stitched on it......
1 year ago: February 05, 2008!
We spent a lazy sunday at home. Lisa had a long nap snuggled against Dad:
After putting a few stitches in Deb's RR I decided I will stitch a bit more on From Sea to Shining Sea tonight.
See you later...

I don't have a lot of needlepoint silks. The only ones I own are some for Chatelaine's Medieval Town Mandala so I used some Belle Soie silks and I hope that is OK for Deb too.

The Drawn Thread
stitched with DMC on 32ct. shell Permin
incl. finishing as scissorskeeper
Yesterday I stitched for a little bit on Take Time To Quilt Spring. But I was so tired I didn't do too much.
Tonight I won't have a lot time to stitch as well. While my husband waited in the parking lot at my workplace to pick me up the plant manager left heading home. They both met a year ago on a trip to Germany and so he stopped at our car for a bit of talking and gave Derek some Eishockey tickets for tonight. Our plant is a big sponsor of the local team so there are always free tickets available and he had some left over.... :) Time to leave now. See you later :)

Yesterday I put a few more stitches in Home is Where You Hang Your Needlework. I started that Febuary 02,2009. Does this mean I started 3 new projects in February?!?!?
stitched on: Home is Where You... and Deb's Hello Neighbor RR
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
When she send me her RR I first didn't even realized that she sent mine as well. It was so well hidden between her charts that I found it after she send an email asking how I liked it..... LOL And it is just BEAUTIFUL. I am so happy that this is my RR and I don't have to send it to anybody....just mine :)))
Here it is my "Neighborhood Row"
And a little bit closer: the left side:
the right side:
Thank you so much to all the ladies who stitched on it:
Carol for stitching AND setting up the RR and doing all the work as RR-mother :)
Yesterday I got the first three LHN installments of "From Sea to Shining Sea" and guess what I had to start right away after stitching my dayly portion on Deb's RR:
One of our mechanics at work has a cattle herd at home and from time to time he sells beef to his workmates. So I could not stand the temptation and bought a quater beef. I got it today and guess why I have to stop now...Hubby is nearly done with barbequeing this little piece of meat for us:

I hope so much she likes how her RR turned out. This is the house I stitched for her. It is a house from the design "Fruit of the Spirit" by Plum Street Samplers. On this picture the colour of the fabric is more similar to the "real" fabric.
Last night was Peppermint Twist SAL night and after I got my silks last friday in the mail it was the first SAL night for me.I enjoyed stitching it so much... I am looking forward to next monday's stitching session :)

Now I have to decide if I will attach it to a pair of scissors or If I am going to start a little basket to display some wonderful needleworks....
