Today it is cold and dreary in Kentucky. We have had snow showers off and on most of the day. We are to have another 1-2 inches tomorrow. I am surrounded by snow and Ice from our last big snow "event". I am very frustrated and want warmer days.

I am not a part of any of the SAL's that are for UFO's this year but it is a goal of mine to finish some of the started but not finished pieces in my basket.
With me having the flu, I have not been stitching very much nor very fast. I did in the past few days though start to work on my favorite piece. I started this a few years back with my best kindred spirit friend. her piece is finished... Lucky girl... My goal is to have mine hanging by years end.
I am having some troubles posting the pictures... It is cutting them off... You can click on them to open them.

Please all pray for recovery... i have had the flu for over a week now. Was at our local ER last Friday and left feeling like i was on the mend. I have a good day and then a very bad day. I have been out of work for 7 days now... and feel so bad about that. The fever is gone... i am no longer contageous... but i can not get rid of the cough and i have an ear that is stopped and soundsnlike there is water on it. It is so frustrating. I just want to feel better. I tried to go into work yesterday and my co workers said i looked like pooooo. And was barking like a dog. I just dont think it is right to cough this hard for 2 weeks. I go to the dr once again today to see what he can do to help me. I have been on an antibiotic... and several courses of sterrhoids. I have an inhailor... and cough syrup... i am so tired of being sick. Please pray foe healing for me and my family they have caught it too but are bouncing back much faster.
Thank you all... stay warm.

Happy New Year to everyone.. what a landslide of a year. Since July my world has just been uprooted and re adjusted... finding out my dad died. Then... swoooooosh.. gargle... and SPIT! Wow... I have aunts... uncles.. cousins... BROTHERS.... nieces and nephews... new experiences to be had by all. Wow all the new details to learn... what makes me who I am.... I had a wonderful childhood.. but it might have had a bit more adventure with everyone in it from the start. I would have liked to have looked in my dads eye... to have told him how awesome my childhood was... to have heard his voice.
So stitching has been wanted but my mental focus has not truly been where it needs to be to stitch...
I will start out by listing some of my stitching goals for 2014...
Working on UFO's...
♥ Peaceful Paradise
♥ Grandmother Fairy - Mirabillia
♥ LK Mystery Christmas piece
♥ Mary Cotton LaDDa

Friday night I went to my local cross stitch shop and got fabric for the Plum Street Sunday Chirstmas piece. Today was the release of part 2 and I have had so much fun getting this all caught up. I am stitching this on 28 count Picture This Plus Twilight... It is a denim like blue with a lot of cloud like variations in it. The color has presented some challenges with the colors used so I have had to change my colors. I am using a mixture of the DMC threads called for, some Gentle Arts called for. I even used a pretty green HDF silk for the one color... This has been so much fun working with colors... And trying to get the look that I want out of the fabric.

I hope this post finds everyone doing well. I am posting today to show you what mother nature has been giving us the past 24 hours. It has been raining every day this week but Friday into Saturday the rains were so hard. This is what use to be a local park... With a dog park attached. You can see where the dog park fense is all wadded up. What a shame the dogs seem to love this park... A safe place to run. When we stopped yo look you could smell a somewhat sewage smell... That is not good. As we drove around... There were several road closed due to flooding.
I am hoping later today to show some stitch pics... Again hope all is well with you. Keep crossing those stitches.

Friday night after getting home from work. I started some weekend chores... And as some laundry was washing... I grabbed both my Just Nan Christmas mouse... And my daughters. They have been stitched and waiting on finishing.
My eyes were a little tired from a day at work entering order after order on the computer. In just a few hours... I have 2 lil mice sitting there just as cute as can be. I am tickled wih how they turned out.
NOW... To start he little bunny... Just nan bunny is next.
It is sunny and near 50 degrees today... But a snow storm is said to be on its way to us... So tomorrow will be a different story. They are calling for rain changing to snow... With an ending forcast of 1-5 inches. Not what i would call a snow STORM ... But snow non the less. Oh spring... please get here!
Take care all ...

Just a quick post to show my LK SAL progress...
I usually love snow... But this year I am work hin with the weather. This is my fist year in near 20 years that i have worked downtown. Dealing with the slush... The snow... The drivers... Wow. It is time for spring. I am excited for sunshine and warm days. Last night we were hit wih a snow storm... Some channels locally were saying up to 14 inches... But we ended up with about 5 it was pretty... But our winds were bad... And even howling. And he roads were pretty slick heading into work this morning.
I also wanted to post a pic of Oogie Boogie.... He has settled into my work dest real nicely. He makes me chuckle. He is from the nightmare before christmas movie... And is just adorable.
Have a great night ladies... Take care... Be safe... And keep crossing those stitches.
