Halloween is here!

Well is everyone ready for the trick or treaters to come knockin on our doors tonight. I had to work today. So God bless Steve he has decorated, made the witch's brew ( a tradition at our house) and he even made a mad dash to the store to pick up extra candy. We are ready so let the games begin. The weather has co-operated no more rain. It is chilly but we can deal with chilly just keep the rain and snow away.
I look forward to tomorrow, with all the activities over I will have time to stitch. I can hardly wait. I will be off to church in the morning and then the rest of the day will be dedicated to me and my needle and thread.
Happy Halloween every one!

Hi everyone, hope it was a good week end for all my stitching friends! We had a quiet week end but we enjoyed our time. Friday night we met friends for coffee and such a good time catching up on our lives. It is such a shame when our lives get so busy that we lose contact with special friends. We have promised ourselves this will not happen again.
Saturday my hubby went to visit his Mom who lives out of town. I had a few hours to stitch and to catch up on some things around the house.
Sunday I went to church and then I came home got changed and we took our very hyper Irish Setterfor a walk along the river. He was pretty pooped when we got home. My evening was spent under my stitching lamp finishing yet another Christmas ornament, two more to go.
Hopefully I can start a large project soon, what will it be, I will have to give that some thought. I have a few to chose from. Maybe Evangeline, I am pretty sure that will be the one.

Saturdays are so nice!

I had a great day today. Steve had to go to London to see his Mom, so I got to sleep in. It was soooooo nice. Both of my darling daughters arrived after lunch and we had a nice quiet afternoon together. Steve arrived home just in time to take me out to dinner. Perfect day, now he is watching the Leafs get massacured again. I am going to make my way to have some stitching time, and hopefully make the odd comment about th Habs but they are not doing very well either so I had better tread softly.
Have a good week end everyone.

Stitching night at Henley's Landing

We had a great night of stitching at my good friend Jane's tonight, we were a small gathering, but very mighty in spirit. Many topic's were discussed and analyzed. We all have different opinions and we some of us have had heart breaking experiences, but we have all survived and we have learned that we can become better human beings and with a little bit of luck hopefully the next generation will be better for it.
We heard from one sister that she has a twin that will not leave. Two of our sisters just got back from lovely vacations in the USA where they did some cross stitch shopping. Lucky girls. Jane your wolves look great, now when is the Millinium Sampler going to be completed? Oh yes Roxanne is your donkey going to finished before Christmas?
I am so blessed to be a part of this wonderful group, thank you all for always being such great Stitching Sisters!

Well I knew this day would come, my holidays are officially over for 2009. I am off to work tomorrow. I must say I have enjoyed my week. I managed to get in a lot of stitching. My Christmas ornaments are on their way to being complete, four more to go and of course I have two Christmas presents to complete.
Today was a beautiful fall day, I sat out on the back deck for a bit and then I decided today was the day to make my beet pickles. I must say they are a lot of work for 5 jars. Oh well they taste mighty good at Christmas time with our tourtiere.
Now I must go and get myself organized for work tomorrow, yes I am big time sad!

I had a great day today, I spent the entire day with my hubby. We atarted off our day with a nice breakfast and read the paper, trust me that did not take very long. Our local newspaper, well they try but there just isn't much new.

Then we decided to clean up the house, which took longer than we planned but that was ok. My computer room really needed help and poor Steve he had the basement to contend with. Both rooms are back in shape. Tomorrow we have plans for the front hall closet and the living room.

Tonight we treated ourselves and went out to dinner. It was Italian night, it was so delicious! I started my meal with a martini, yummmmm.

When we got home of course Steve watched the hockey game, the leafs really are pathetic! I was happy I had time to stitch. With any luck I will have all my ornaments stitched and ready for Christmas. That will be awesome.

My day started off with my good friend Jane calling me and helping me yet again with setting up my blog. Thank you Jane, you are such a good friend.
I have now completed my seven projects, thank you Jane for all your hard work. The wires and labels are all on and as soon as I have myself together and maybe another coffee I will be off to the Thread and Eye to put them in their show for a couple of weeks. I will give my good friend Debra a call and maybe we can get in a little visit before I head home to make Steve his supper. Boy being on holidays is hard work.

Today was a very busy day, I started off by being late for my hair appointment and that was not a good thing. Iwent flying out of the house not even time to pick up a Tim Horton coffee, what a bummer!
This afternoon I spent the afternoon at my good friend's Jane where she helped me no she 99% helped me complete 7 projects that have been rolled up in a towel for way too long. They are so beautiful. Thank you so much Jane you are the best! Leroy will not be happy that you were helping me and not in the garden working, I am sorry but it was way too cold to work in the garden today anyway!
Jane thank you so much for showing me how to start on my blog, I will work on it more when Steve goes to bed. Let me know what you think.
