SBQ & rambling...

Do you stitch "over one?" If so, describe your experiences. If not,have you considered it?

Yes, I have! Some designs just 'call' for it. I don't mind it, and I usually will do each cross individually, so as not to lose them in the fabric.

And now to the rambling....

Have you all checked out
Lelia's Blog? Have you seen what her son is stitching? Dang! I haven't stitched a whole MLI, and here he is going gang-busters! Great Job Nicholas!!

My sister will be here soon, and we will be going out to lunch with Mom, and then heading to Camp!!! (I'm just a little excited!) The camera is packed, as is everything else... I have my Diet Pepsi, Coffee and snacks; Ree's Coke; my stitching 'stuff'; some funky slippers (blue bunnies this year); my makeup, meds, and some clothes. Yuppers-- I'm ready!! **Mom just called -- she made us peanut butter cookies and mini blueberry muffins!!

Now... if anyone has some good cheese to serve with my whine--- Last procedure at the Dr.'s office this morning. "We will remove this little lump on your thigh. It's probably a cyst, and take a few stitches to close it up" Well, it wasn't a cyst. Sending it off to be tested. :::sigh::: And, I don't call eighteen stitches a few! It will probably be uncomfortable when the novacaine wears off. But, I did get shoes on this morning!! Yeah! And, I don't have to drive anywhere, Ree's doing that, and I will just be sitting and stitching and visiting all weekend!

On to stitching... I started the
Cross Stitcher at Work chart last night. I'm using GAST fibers in Freedom for the 'Do Not Disturb' and the big crosses, and Morning Glory for the rest, on 28ct. Flax Cashel. I think it's going to turn out pretty cool. It looks like it will stitch up pretty quickly. I did change the big crosses to Smyrna Crosses -- made more sense to me. But, wait, you say -- that is not on her list to stitch this year! I don't think anything I am taking to camp is on my stitching list, except for the tabletopper. I know... I can't stay on a system. But, it's still early in the year, so I may get back on track! And, I might pick up a few goodies from SNT this weekend! I do have a little (!) list to see about. Sometimes when you see the chart in person, it looks so different from the picture on line... and vice versa! I'll share my goodies purchased when I get back...

I hope everyone has a great St. Patrick's Day! Wear a little green and enjoy! My husband, (who is full of the blarney most of the time), is taking tomorrow off and making Corned Beef and Cabbage. Then he is bringing dinner to Ree and me at the hotel! Sometimes he can be a real sweetie!!

I am outah here!! See you all Monday afternoon!!

Hugs and stitches....

Stitching on today: whatever I grab out of the tote!

You have a wonderful St Patrick's Day. It's not really celebrated here in the UK, like you do over there (unless you're Irish).

Myrna, have a wonderful stitching weekend!! Can't wait to hear all about your fun next week. :D
Hope your wound heals quickly and with as little pain as possible!!

Take care of yourself! Nice of DH to bring your St. Patrick's Day meal.

Thankx for mentioning our Nicholas. He is moving along at a fast pace. I'll post another picture on Monday or Tuesday. He is enjoying it : )
