Last Post & Finish of 2011

Yep, you read that right I was able to finish Quaker Christmas yesterday. But sadly I was only able to finish 3 in 2011.....very pathetic I will be trying for a heck of a lot more next year.

And now I have started back on to Egyptian Garden, I was able to finish the back stitching on the Arch's and now I will be working on the area with the lotus flowers, black cats and palm trees...I am so excited. LOL.

Check out the canvas kit I got for Christmas. It is called Diamond Eyes and I am doing the Allure color scheme which is the one in the middle.

Well everyone have a great start of 2012.

Merry Christmas

Hi everyone. I am just stopping by really quickly to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Please everyone be safe this holiday season.

FYI: I got a new camera so I will be able to post pics in the new year and I am still working on Quaker Christmas. I only have 1/2 page since I am off between Christmas and New Year I will be working hard to get this done. I haven't even kitted up any of my projects for next year yet because I am determined to finish Quaker first.

Oh dear

Well I am annoyed.....yet again. I will be so glad to see the end of 2011. So I have been so busy with shopping, wrapping, work, Christmas visits etc that I haven't put a stitch into Quaker Christmas for about two weeks. I am now wondering if I can manage to finish it before Christmas or whether I will be still working on it Christmas.

So, Fizzy's foot has completely healed now and he is finished his antibiotics as of yesterday. I was able to take off the bandage the vet put on his foot after about 3 days and he pretty much left it alone. So I am happy the whole situation is over now.

My mother's side of the family Christmas party was last Saturday and I was showing my great aunt a photo of one of mom's framed Mirabilia in the front hallway. I wasn't paying attention and neither was she and one thing lead to another and she dropped my camera onto the hardwood floor. I didn't think anything of it at the time so I didn't check the camera right then and there but I waited about 30 mins and now my display screen is completely black and I can't take pictures anymore *shit*.

I was told by the local camera guy in our area that the lens is misaligned and it will cost about $150 to fix, since the camera cost me about $125 two years ago I don't think it's worth it to fix. Also, I just got my Christmas bonus at work today so I am going to look for a new camera. I most definitely didn't want to have to do this right now before Christmas but I am hoping the camera I purchase goes on sale on Boxing Day if it does I get some of the money back so I will cross my fingers it goes on sale LOL and since I am using my bonus money it technically won't cost me a thing. What this also means is I won't be able to take pictures of any stitch until I replace the camera.

Thanks for listening.

**apparently blogger doesn't like this post, I have been trying for 2 days to post it and my 'publish post' button isn't working.

I am still here

I have wanted to post, really I have...I have also wanted to stitch too LOL.

So I am in the final stretch of Quaker Christmas, I am on the last page and have about 3/4 left to do. I had no idea that there were so many large motif on this page. I am alternating between the large and small just to keep this project moving.

My goal was to be finish before Saturday, we are going to a family christmas party and I want to show my great aunt the finished design but I just don't think this will happen.

Some one asked last month what colors I am using, I am using DMC variation colors I think the are #4200 & 4010. I will check if I am correct on the numbers and correct this post if I am wrong.

An update on Fizzy, so his injury turned out not to be that bad, he almost broke the dew claw completely off which was the best thing he could have done, or at least that's what the vet said. He would have done just that if his fur hadn't gotten in the way. So she just finished cutting the nail off, cauterized it and bandaged it up, he was a little red too so he is on meds for 10 days.

So Christmas is in high gear niw ant work and home and I literally am going to bed exhausted.....there is so much to do.

I bought myself a mini tree this year so I could decorate it the way I wanted to and then I bought jumbo ornies so they would jump out. I decorated it on Tuesday but I don't like how the jumbo ornies are sitting, they all seem to be at the bottom half of the tree so I am going to shuffle them around tonight.

Thanks for listening.
