Here's What I've Been Up To

This is my latest progress on HaED's Fairy Frog Mother. I was stitching on her and then left the room. When I came back, I thought, "Hey! She has eyes!" Ha ha ha! I have trouble staying focased when there is alot of confetti stitching but I am loving these colors so it hasn't been too bad. 
Here is Joan Elliott's Crescent Moon Dragon. I really should post "before" photos with these but I'm feeling lazy right now. I love the colors in this one too. I am finding the fabric to be a little "slippery" in the q-snaps so I am having to constantly re-tighten while I'm stitching. I think it's lugana or jobelan, not sure which. I might have to put it on scroll rods.
I am now working on Frog Pile. I have decided that the only way for me to get any good progress on it is to "make" myself complete one frog at a time instead of skipping around. So to make it fun I have assigned names to each frog. Hee hee! i am currently working on Fred. 
Ok, I had to show you this! My dog Pete likes to sleep next to me while I stitch. And yes, more often than not, he sleeps with his tongue sticking out! Lol!

I'm Having A Bad Week

I have already made a post a couple of weeks ago about how I was losing my job. My cousins that I have babysat for since they were born are now growing up and don't need me anymore. Every time I see the oldest one now, he hugs me and cries. Is it weird to have empty nest syndrome when they aren't even your kids? Well anyway, I was supposed to still be babysitting my nephew when my bro.-in-law gets a new job. Now I am finding out that my Sis will be quitting her job when he gets his new job. So I am officially out of a job. I haven't ever had a "real" job so I am super scared, nervous, depressed, feeling sorry for myself, ect.... I have been self employed and worked out of my home for the past 10 plus years so I am feeling quite lost. I know that probably everything is going to be ok in the end and I am totally freaking out over nothing. I will be looking for a new job this week.

Part 5 Completed!

Yay! I'm all caught up! I just finished part 5 of "Around the World in 80 Stitches". I have no idea what color beads I'm going to use but since I'm saving those for the end anyway, I've got plenty of time to decide.
Now I have to go bathe the dog. He apparently stuck his nose where it didn't belong last night and got sprayed by a skunk. Lol.

Part 3!

I got part 3 of Around the World in 80 Stitches done! I have to say, I don't usually enjoy lazy daisys but doing them in metallic thread is just pure evil. I did make a little mistake but it all turned out ok and I can live with it. My Sis and her family got their power back so everything is back to semi-normal. I have a whole list of chores I need to get done before I go start on part 4. Let's see how far I can get before I give in and go stitch. ;-) lol.

Part 2 Done!

I got part 2 done! Things have been a little topsy turvy around here. My sister's electricity has blown out at her house so while that's being fixed, she, my bro-in-law, and my cutie nephew have been crashing at my house. It's been quite hectic but kind of fun too.

So....on to part 3!
