Stash for sale!

I cleaned up the stash corner that's in my room. I go on vacation in 2 weeks so I plan to clean out my major stash corner then and get rid of some more. I have way too much and it's making me cranky LOL. It's mostly charts. I'm tempted to put my entire DMC collection for sale if I don't find a convenient way to store them but that's for another day I think. Anyway I put up a list on my wishlist blog if anyone cares to look. I have lots to blog about but it's late and I have to wake up early tomorrow to get my hair done (wash and cut) plus I work tomorrow night (and for the next 3 nights!)

Thanks for all the smile awards! I was surprised and HAPPY that I make people smile :) It came at a perfect time too because I was feeling in the dumps (still am but I'm getting over it) More about that later! I'm off to bed. Here's the link to my wishlist blog PrettyPnkWishes

Pictures to share!

I went to my not so LNS yesterday for our monthly stitch in, those that meet at their LNS can tell you how relaxing this can be. I always have fun there, I just wish I could get their earlier.

Well while there I had 2 lovely surprises waiting for me - FRAMING! I have no place to hang them but I bought some easel thingees and plan on displaying at Kelly's apartment. His apartment is so bare, I wish I had something big enough to hang. He wanted to hang one of my Shepherd's Bush on the biggest wall of his house which just made the wall look bigger LOL. Right now the plan is to display them by the window in the living room. It has a big enough inside ledge to put things on.

Shepherd's Bush Trick or Treat.

I didn't get it framed with the mats and stuff because I didn't like them. It looked too washed out. I love how it looks in this frame better!

Shepherd's Bush Fright.

I opted for the frame and mats on this one and the frame is just so funky! The mats are too, I love it :)

I'm suppose to be stitching on my Fair and Square Exchange but yesterday I had no wanting to stitch on it and picked up Victoria's Quaker again. I love stitching on this piece, I really do. It's big but stitches up somewhat quickly. Here's what I got done in about an hour or so of stitching. May not look like much but to me it is. You can see what it looked like before here.

Now this is something I DID NOT STITCH. I got it from CATS. I forget which booth but they were selling old finished models. The ladies in the booth had no idea of the designer so I bought it hoping someone would know something about it. If no one knows then I may just stitch from it. I felt really bad buying it. I only paid $18 for it and I know as a stitcher it's worth more.

I took Ana to the doctor, it's worse that I thought it was. She has allergies but they're pretty bad :( She has to be on medication (one being an antibiotic) for atleast 4 weeks. She's still itchy but not as she was before and her face is still red sometimes but she's getting better. I hate having to shove pills down her throat. I don't have to do it all the time, the doctor gave me Pill Pockets to make a treat out of her pills and sometimes (most of the time) she takes it but sometimes she has no interest in it. Here she is on her new bed (I had to throw out the old one because we don't know what is giving her this allergy.)

I work tonight and I'm not looking forward to it. I called out absent on Sunday because of my cousin's daughter's baptism (I am her Godmother) so I don't even feel like seeing my nurse manager in the morning. I going to stitch for a while before having to get ready to leave. But before I sign out I wanted to share 2 things (non-stitching related) I'm going back to school for my BSN (Bachelor's in Nursing) in January. My hospital has this new program where they offer classes in the hospital. Adelphi University is the school that's offering it, I went to Adelphi and wanted to go back for my BSN so I signed up. I start in January! I also started studying for certification. When I pass the test (I still have some more requirements to fill before I apply mainly continuing education credit/hours) I get a new letter to add after my name (RN-BC or RN-C) and more money :-) Ok now I go off to stitch and watch season one of Heroes. Save the cheerleader, save the world!

I have stitched all the Christmas my Halloween heart can handle. Unfortunately, I can't show it just yet! I think that's one thing about exchanges that I hate - you can't show anything! Well you can but I know my exchange partner stops by and I don't want her seeing the stitched part of her ornament.

I still have one more exchange to stitch for and then I'm done with exchanges and can stitch for me again :) The only problem with this exchange is that I don't know what to stitch *ugh* don't you just hate when that happens? I did pull out a few charts and am sort of leaning towards one of them but I always have this big fear that maybe my partner won't like it and then my stitching will be thrown to the side...forgotten. Maybe I'm paranoid but that's just how I feel.

Well, I'm off. I don't want to bore anyone with my ramblings of nothing-ness. Thanks for the comments on my last finish! They are always appreciated, comments make a blogger feel so much's like people actually read about (or stop by to see) my finishes or me :) I hate not posting a picture soooooo I'll leave you with one of my favorite gal. She's having a really bad time with her allergies this season, it's so bad that I'm taking her to the doctor tomorrow. She keeps scratching her face causing her fur to thin around her muzzle and her eyes are all red and her belly :( I know she's just miserable, after an allergy shot she'll feel better *I hope.* Anyway here she is...

Light Your Way Finish!

Blackbird Designs - Light Your Way
Stitched on R&R Fabric - color unknown
with WDW floss
It's done! I'm happy about it and I like the way it looks :) I had so much to blog about and now that I finally have the chance I don't feel like it. Some stupid things are going on here at home that just put a damper on everything. I did end up going to CATS last minute and I'm glad I did. Tomorrow I have jury duty and I'm going to see Bloc Party at night *yea* so maybe that will cheer me up some. I'm currently stitching on some exchange stuff, hopefully I'll be done with that soon and can get back to my own stitching LOL. TTFN and thanks so much for the comments on my last finish!!!
