Recluse,I have thought of this word latley and always associated it with someone out of controll but the corrrect deffinition is that of above... And I will admit I have fit that bill in 2011. But 2012 wil prove to be a a better year. Last year I had to overcome some small personal hurdles and during that time almost gave up on my stitching all together, but with some wise curt advice from a few fellow stitching friends I came to my senses haha
I have great stitching plans this year, if I can crank out 3 ornaments to hang on my tree next year I will be golden :0)
I will share a photo Wednesday.of.my.finishes
I have been enjoying my time off, I was able to hang out with a great friend on Monday. We seem to always talk more than stitch but it is always such fun catching.up.with her :o)
Take care and.happy stitching

EDITED 12/11 I had a bit to much Christmas Cheer at a holiday party last night so I have been planted on the couch with my heating pad and some hot tea. I am doubt full I will be stitching or finishing today, but tomorrow is another day :)
My SIL is a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan so I am stitching an ornament for her, let me say that gray#415 is the most boring color haha!
I want to share a few pictures of my Christmas tree this year. This was from my stitching partner this year, Kim is a wonderful stitcher

Smells, Do you have a smell that just transports you and reminds you of your past? I do, and for me it is eucalyptus and fresh baked bread. Growing up everyone in my neighborhood played a roll in raising me. The saying "It takes a village" well that was us.
I grew up on the West side of Cleveland and was the baby in the family and the only girl, so need less to say I had many watchful eyes and could never get away with anything before my Mother got word.
I had many "Aunts" "Uncles" and "Grandmas" you know the type, not really blood family but they are your family anyway just cause they love you. Well Grandma Gerrie's house was like my second home, it always smelled like eucalyptus and fresh baked bread, and it still does 20+ years later and even after she has moved to another home it still feels like "home".
Grandma Gerrie is going to be 90 and I just wish I could keep her forever and bottle that smell to last me forever.
I am in a reminiscing mood and will probably be sharing more stories for the Christmas season and some stitching too :)

On to some stitching news, I am moving along on my Snowman piece, stitching white can get alittle boring, I can't wait to move onto some color :)
Can anyone help me locate this pattern? I saw this stitched up by a fellow stitcher and just adore it.
Don't forget to check out my sale blog. I do trades also :)

We came home around 2:30, got to watch the football games, those pesky Ravens beat the 49 ers', and watched and all the specials that were on tv. It truly was a wonderful day.
How many of you are shopping today? Or were crazy enough to go last night? that is said with much love :) I will be staying far far away from any stores for at least a week. I do have to work today so I know I will be busy, all the weary shoppers will be coming to me for drinks LOL
I did get some stitching time yesterday after I took an hour walk because I was so stuffed from dinner. Here is where I am so far on "PEACE" by Sam Sarah Designs

Now I must rebuild this blog and hope it can be as great as it was before, but first I must stitch right? So without further ado, after MANY long months of not having any urge what so ever I give to you my current WIP
Lizzie Kate Snowman '10

Take care beautiful people and have a wonderful day!!!

What has taken up all of my time you might ask? LIFE!! Sometimes it throws a curve ball at you and it just keeps coming. I am in a year long stitching exchange, that has been good, for not them I am sure I would not have stitched a lick.
I took a wonderful trip back in July to visit some girlfriends in Colorado. I was there for 5 glorious days, hiking, hanging out and having drinks at my favorite restarunt The Morrison Inn. They have THE best margaritas. Having one will make you do silly things.
We also stayed in the mountains for a night with 7 girls and three awesome kids. Hiking during the day and roasting marshmallows by the camp fire at night under a million stars. I will post photos on my next post.
For now I will leave you with our pumpkins we carved the other night, well I actually did all the work dear Hubby just made sure the pumpkin seeds tasted good LOL
Till next time friends I hope your day is filled with SPOOKTACULAR thrills.
