Searching for an OOP chart

Good Wednesday Morning Friends

How is every ones Wednesday morning starting off? I hope where ever you are in the world life is being good to you. I myself am in high spirits today. I woke up this morning at 6:30. Since I was up that early I decided I should make great use of my time. So I whipped up two pumpkin rolls. I have been meaning to make these for a few weeks now. So I happy to have that crossed off my list today :)

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 :)

Gobble Gobble Gulp!!!! Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday Friends!! I hope everybodys Thanksgiving was a day of thanks and good times. DH and I went out to dinner. Very unconventional for us, as I usually cook. But my husband, being as sweet as he is, said it was silly for me to spend all day cooking in the kitchen just for the two of us, so who am I to argue? Hehehe Trader Vics had a wonderful buffet and we also had a few Mai Tais. Best part was no dishes and no sneaking into the kitchen late at night to eat more turkey LOL

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

Mr snowman is getting lonely, hopefully I can stitch his mate tonight. Well folks that is all for today. Hope your Friday is a fun day!!

Take Care

Feeling a bit FROSTY

It is a tad chilly here in the bay area and what are DH and I planning on doing? Driving up to Tahoe!! We were planning a quick ski trip, but they have not gotten alot of snow yet. A few resorts are open but the day we plan on skiing it is suppose to rain. *YUCK*

We are probably just going to hang out enjoy the mountain air and relax, something that my DH REALLY needs. And we are going to be pup free YAY!! We have our dog sitter staying with the furbabies. So it will trully be a relaxing few days.

I would like to show you my current WIP.

Broke down and turned the heat on.

My title says is all. It is a CHILLY morning here in the Bay Area. Brrrr!!! I finally had to give in and turn the heat on. The sight of my little dog shivering and my fingers about to fall off made me do it. of course I am exagerating a bit LOL.

I am almost finished stitching on my sweet Snowman. Then I just have to decide how I want to finish him. I wanted to share a few photos from my trip to Colorado this past summer.

View from our Cabin in Vail,Co

Chuck's Hut

How we spent the night, roasting marshmellows and having "girl" talks :)

Hike we did the following day on the way back to Denver

Lily Pad Lake
It was so great to visit my good friends and meet new ones. There 5 girls and 3 kids(3,5,7) staying in the cabin, made for a great time. I sure do miss living in Colorado. It is such a beautiful place, with many, many outdoor adventures :)

So that is my post ofr today, next time I will have a finished stitched piece to share. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Starting from scratch....A snowy picture

When I made the decision back in April to stop blogging, I also made the decision to delete my blog. And now looking back I wish I hadn't. I think back to ALL the wonderful posts I had, the great number of followers and all the wonderful comments that were left for me over the YEARS of blogging, I think I started it in 2005!!

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

I refuse to stitch on anything else until Mr Snowman is finished :) So that folks is what I have been up to. Well there has been alot more going on other than that but that will have to wait for another day.

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