Feeling Blucky...

Hi everyone. Just a quick post to let you know that I haven't fallen off of the planet, just haven't been feeling all that great lately. By the way, blucky is my word for not feeling well. It is a cross between blah and yucky. We went to Disney World over the weekend and I was feeling just awful. I rode around on one of those motor scooters which was like a thrill ride in and of itself. I had near misses with about a half dozen children and passersby who seemed to wander in and out of my intended path. I spent a time sleeping in the first aid station while my family tried to salvage the day. The rest of the time was spent hurtling into space on Space Mountain, shooting down the rapids on Splash Mountain, a thirteen-story elevator drop on The Twilight Zone's Tower of Terror and three yes three upside down loops on Rockin' Roller Coaster courtesy of Aerosmith. I have bruises in places that definitly shouldn't be bruised. We generally had a good time and thanks to the season passes that my husband purchased for us, we can go back just about any time we want.

I received some more stash that I will photograph soon and the JCS ornament issue. I found a few that I would like to stich. I think that the Raise the Roof ornie "Walt the Malt" is adorable. Well, I'm off to rest awhile. More soon!

Better Late Than Never...

As promised, here are pictures of my recent stash acquisition. I purchased CCN "Boys and Bugs", Pine Mountain Designs "Be Sweet", Midsummer Night Designs "Bloom", Lizzie Kate "Tiny Tidings XIII", Just Nan "Gilded Dragonfly", Heart In Had "Perfect Pumpkins", JBW Designs "Christmas Keepsakes II", Val's Stuff "Wrap It Up", Country Garden Stitchery "Tea For Two", Angel Stitchin "Be Naughty 2", Lavender Wings "Scary Carrie Long Leggz" and "Buddy Boo Long Leggz", Raise the Roof "Wise Old Owl", Blue Ribbon Designs "With All Your Heart", Miss Crescent's Crowne "All in a Moon", LHN "Heart and Home Sampler" and "Autumn Harvest", Pine Mountain Designs "School Yard", Shepherd's Bush "Queen Sheep", Just Nan Over the Top and In The Tin "Boo" needle book and tin topper, Shepherd's Bush "My Mom's Garden", SamSarah "October Baubles", "August Baubles" and "September Baubles", Midsummer Night Designs "Patriotic Summer", CCN "Princess Parade" and LHN "Gardening". On top of all that, a lot of those are kits and the rest I kitted so they are ready to go. I have been keeping a running list of what I wanted all summer, and then after I had saved, I bought what I wanted. Am I lucky or what?

I have been fast and furiously stitching over the past week. I finished the stitching for five (yes I said five) exchanges. Anyway, there aren't any pictures because they are all surprises. I will certainly share pics when the exchanges are received. They all really turned out adorable if I say so myself. I hope that my partners think so too!

I have to got to the dentist tomorrow and have a very old filling repaired. I am dreading it so any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated. I'm off to get some rest and finish watching General Hospital on Soap Net. Ciao!

Stash Stash And More Stash

I received tons of stash in the mail today, and I promise promise promise that I will post pictures tomorrow. I also started a different Halloween ornie today as the Prairie Schooler one that I was stitching was soooo not working out for me. I had to stash it in my UFO pile for now. I hate to admit it but I am not a huge Prairie Schooler fan. I like some of their stuff, but not all of it. I have been working on a lot of "committment stitching" - that's what I call stitching for exchanges. I love love love the ornie that I am stitching for a personal Halloween exchange, and I bought everything to do it multiple times. It is working up so nicely and is a very fun stitch.

Tropical storm Hanna is likely to move this way by the end of the week and yes I am totally FREAKING out! One again, we went to the market today to replenish what we used after TS Fay. Let's just pray that the power doesn't go out beacause if it does, the water goes out too. If you read my blog then you know the drill. 

Well, I am off to stitch! Ciao!
