The weekend before Christmas, my sister and I drove to Pennsylvania to bring my parents down to Virginia for Christmas. The weekend after, we took them back up. I have a little LHN piece that I keep packed in my duffel bag. That is what I stitched on this past weekend. It's coming along nicely considering I only stitch on it when I travel.

I'm going shopping to Michael's on January 1st for floss for HAEDs Contemplating the System by Ciro Marchetti. If you aren't familiar with HAED, they almost all take at least 90 different colors of floss. I have a coupon for 20% off my entire order on the 1st, so I should make out nicely. I also have gift cards for Michael's that I received for Christmas. Yay! Shopping at no cost to me! Can it get any better than that?

Update Finally!

Yes, I am finally updating. March and I stitched last weekend and I actually put a little in FoS. So, here it is:I also stitch a couple hours on LHN's HoN2. This is the piece March and I are stitching together. We start the day stitching on it, then switch to whatever else we want to work on later.

The lighting isn't so great, but this is a sweet little piece.
I've also been stitching on MXI. I'm just about out of one of the colors I'm using as a substitute. It is Six Strand Sweets Green Tea Ice Cream. I checked with their website and contacted one of the sites listed. Laurel's Stitchery had some SSS listed but not that color. I emailed Laurel and she found one for me and put it up on her site so I could buy it. All within 24 hours. Now that is service. I'll go there again, that's for sure.

Free Day Friday

As of Thursday afternoon I have worked 42 hours. I'm also scheduled to work Saturday. My mantra is "Christmas shopping money". I repeat this several time a day. I have done a little stitching, but no pictures to show just yet. However, I am off Friday and I plan on doing some stitching, laundry, going shopping with my sister, getting my car's emissions done and going to the DMV for my tags. Not necessarily in that order! I also have the monthly Stitch and Bitch at March's this Sunday. So my stitching plans are to work on MXI Friday and Saturday, then to work of FoS on Sunday and Monday. This is the last month of the HAED SAL. I haven't missed one month. Not bad for my first time with this. I also heard from Angela yesterday that she received my ornament. Of course I forgot to take a picture, so you'll have to go to her blog to see it. She loves all things Disney, so I charted a Mickey Mouse and stitched it for her. Well, it's after 1 a.m. and I'm not the least bit tired, so I'm going to go read blogs and catch up on all the news. I will try to get pictures posted after the weekend of what I get done.
