My stitching day!!!

Yeah!  It's FINALLY FRIDAY!!!  Ok now that you have that song stuck in your head, you can blame me!  I'll take it!!! LOL  I've been busy all this week all in a good way.  I started the week off with sewing on Monday.  Then DH decided he wanted to go for a run after he got home on Monday so I decided now was the perfect time to get me back into the habit of doing some sort of exercise besides housework, laundry and running errands.  And if you don't think housework is a form of exercise, I beg to differ with you as I do with my husband ALL THE TIME on that subject.  No it's not my favorite thing to do, but I don't want to live in a pig stye either.  I went to the park close to our house to do a walk because it has a nice walking route around the play ground.  I've been able to keep up on that all this week and yes....I've been feeling better.  I'm going to keep up on it until we start getting snow here later this year and into the new year.  Then I will just try to do Wii Fit! 

As I said, I did some sewing which no.....I can't show you yet but I will soon.  So all this week, I've been sewing on this or that in hopes to showing you some new goodies that have been needing to be finished. 

Here are some pictures of things I've gotten in the mail to add to my stitching stash!  This is some new goodies from a birthday gift certificate that my best friend Karen gave me!!!  The silks and fabric in the top right hand corner is for Shakespeare's Peddler Jane Philpott Sampler.  My new LK Mystery part 2 was included, and then I just HAD to get the 2 new Just Nan Halloween charts!!!  The needles were a gift from my friend Drema at Needlecraft Corner.

When I saw this little tray on SB website and it had a small sheep in the handle, I just HAD to call and order it with the kit to add to my stash!!!   I JUST LOVE THOSE SHEEP in the handles!!!

I also received the last of my SB Fold kit from Attic Needlework!!!!  I just LOVE how the Attic packages things!!!  THANK YOU JEAN and Attic ladies for taking such great care in packaging our goodies when we order them!  They make me feel like it's Christmas every time I get a package from them! 

Here is a belated picture of all my birthday presents back from Aug.  Yes.....I know....I'm very VERY late in sharing this.  I had just grouped them all together in one picture though. 

This one is just from my immediate family.  I asked my kids to "make" me something.  You can see the Totoro picture my daughter drew me and the origami flower that my son made me.  The gift cards were from DH and the Squirtal was also from my son!

Ok.  Now is the time for me to GET OFF THIS COMPUTER!  I've already checked my email this morning, and have posted what I wanted to for today so now I can sit and stitch like I had planned.  I will be stitching on MBT Amazing Grace!  I LOVE stitching on this.  Ok ok......if you know me.....I just LOVE TO CROSS STITCH!!!  haha

I will try to give you an updated photo maybe tomorrow!!!  Until then.....HAPPY STITCHING!
