flower update 12.29.09

I worked on this in the middle of last night. I made one mistake that I caught. So I have to frog. But, I don't think there should be many knots so I should not have too much trouble.

The day was ok. Finally polished my nails. They looked dreadful. They are a nice deep shiny purple now. I love nail polish if you didn't already know that.

up in the middle of the night

I just had a really bad dream. I couldn't go back to sleep.

I am going to go stitch for awhile and maybe that will help me get back to sleep.

Have a good day.......

Ending 2009

This has been such a long year. Llllooonnnnnnnnggggggg
The ending of the year is hard. I am so glad to be out of the nursing home and walking on my own two feet with NO medications. Been great. I can walk with a tiny limp but mostly ok.

My mood swings however? Been bad. Real bad. Have not been suicidal or homicidal feeling. Just really up and really down in short periods. I took a strong med yesterday and it wiped me out. But, after sleeping for hours and hours I feel alot better. Maybe too much higher. I don't know. But, who cares I stitched a bunch today. More so then I have in months.

I am working on a flower and I will call it LOVE. It is part of another pattern but I broke it up into smaller pieces because it is easier for me to do.

This is the beginning of what I have been working on for the last 2-3 days or so. I started it awhile back but this is what it looked like earlier today

I have worked on this in the last hour or so.

I hate blogger this has taken me about 20 mins to do. Shouldn't have to take that long. But at least blogger is around unlike multiply which just died.
I will post more later on...............
+++God Bless+++

insomnia.......blog upload


This is a pic of the pillowcase. See the flowers.

I got the pattern from an Aunt Martha's collection of iron on flowers. I ironed on the pattern.

The pattern included the lazy daisy stitch as well as the outline stitch and french knots. I did it!

The kit was less then a dollar. The pillowcases were less then 10 dollars. You all know how much the floss was. So all in all, the wedding gift did not cost much but it was hard on my fingers. Mary suggested I use a band aid to help and she was right. It worked. Thanks, Mary.

Here is the pattern for the Love project I just started today. It is the pic on the right. I can only do one of these at a time because I cannot do larger projects. I picked that one of the 3 because I like the color combinations of the light purple and blues.

This is the very beginning of this project.

Goals for Sept and Oct

I have already finished 2 projects this year. I am on my way to my 3rd

My goals for Sept and Oct: Work on the Live Learn Love piece that says Love

I will post pics on that soon

I may start another embroidery project. Perhaps something xmas themed? We shall see.

Happy stitching!
