I'm not sure on what to stitch on next. I need to work on QS Fairy Tales but because I am doing it over one it seems like I am not making any progress at the moment. Then again, if I don't work on it then there definitely won't be any progress. Oh well, I am sure I can find something to stitch.:)
Have a great night!

and here I am after watching NCIS for most of the day.
I would love to say it has been a quiet day but my son decided that wasn't in the plans for today. He had a "small" bike wreck. He really did a number on himself! He got his knee, hip, elbow, and forehead. I think it would have been easier just to wrap him up like a mummy than to put all the bandages on his wounds. It doesn't look like he broke anything.....cause he ran like a madman as soon as I pulled out the hydrogen peroxide. All was made better because his dad treated him to a treat off the ice cream truck which Mac was sweet enough to share with Megan.
Hopefully tomorrow will be somewhat calmer!

Awhile ago Chiara had a drawing for some blog candy and I was the lucky winner!! If you know anything about me, it is that I don't have very good luck so I was completely thrilled to find out I had one. Now that it arrived late yesterday afternoon I was even more thrilled with it when I saw it up close!
She made these bears for her daughter, Giulia's baptism. Isn't he just the cutest thing?! I absolutely adore him!! Thank you so much, Chiara!! He will always be treasured.:)
I hope everyone has a great day!

My stitching plans for tomorrow is to work on Too Cute SAL with Renee. :) After that I am not to sure what I will stitch on. Of course, this is assuming I will get to sit down and stitch...lol.

One of the benefits of moving back here is....garage sales!! I love them! My Mom and I were shopping today when we saw a garage sale and neither one of us could pass it by. It was a good thing we didn't because I found several (I think a total of 5) unused frames. All of them cost me a whole two dollars.:) We also found a nice comforter, 2 shirts for Mac, a shirt for Krissy, a hooded sweatshirt for Allie, a computer game for Mike, and 2 big dolls for Megan. All of the items(including the frames) cost a grand total of $8.50! Gotta love that savings! :)
With my new acquired frames I happily dove into my WTF pile to see what I could frame. Here are my results from this afternoon.:)

I really try to keep my chin up because I know I am blessed that we didn't lose Megan but I still question myself if it was something I did or didn't do right. I know in my mind that I didn't do anything wrong but that doesn't take the pain away in my heart. I also know people try to ease my pain by saying "It just wasn't meant to be" but that doesn't make it easier. It just makes me want to know "Why me" even more.
Anyways......that is the reason I didn't get a lot of stitching done today. I started a freebie from Pat & Gloria yesterday. I haven't gotten real far on it so the picture kind of looks funny but it is progress.
Only 8 more days till the kids are on Summer Break....Help! LOL
Bronny is having a giveaway on her blog. Check it out!!

Today I will be working on stitching up another ornament for Christmas. I miscounted earlier this year and thought I only needed to do 13 but instead I need to do a total of 19. Of course, I still have other ones I want to stitch and give as gifts.. I haven't even started on Mike's stocking that needs to be done this year either! I have a feeling I will be scrambling at the end of the year to get things done.
I'm not sure how much stitching I will get done as Mac and Megan both aren't feeling well today. Which mean I have to very cranky kids on my hands today. Megan has started teething and she isn't liking it at all. Mac developed a cold over the weekend and woke up running a fever this morning. Before the end of the week I bet the other 2 will be feeling sick also. The one thing you can guarantee with kids is that if one gets sick the others will come down with it soon.
Chiloe-The teddy bear ornament is from Ellen Maurer-Stroh. It is a freebie from the EMS Cross Stitch Board.

The date isn't exactly centered either but it wasn't real bad so I left it alone.

I really enjoyed stitch this design! The only part that I didn't care for was stitching with the Wisper white thread. If I was to ever stitch her again I would just use plain old regular white DMC.

I want to thank everyone for their comments on Megan's rolling over. Later when Daddy got home she had to show off by rolling from her back to her tummy and then rolled from her tummy to her back. :) It is amazing how quickly she mastered that skill because yesterday she was ALL over the floor. Her true age is 7 months but her preemie age is 5 months and 1 week so she is actually on target for rolling. When they are born early you have to subtract how premature she was from her real age to get an idea if they are delayed or not. Sometimes it gets confusing and I have been down this road before.
I am off to start the beading on VCE. Hopefully in the next day or two I will have a happy dance to show you. :)
Have a great day!!

Who wants a bottle when a new pair of shoes are in sight!
So I doubled the temptation with putting the bottle near the shoes. :)

I started working on some crochet yesterday but I quickly lost interest in it. I shouldn't really say I lost interest but it was more my hands started cramping up. The pattern I chose to work requires using 3 strands of yarn at once. I guess this rug might take a bit longer than I had thought!
I worked on VCE today and I am happy to report that I am finished the ribbon and leaves tonight. :) Tomorrow I will start on finishing the girl.
It is hard to believe it is May already!
