Girls Night In

Well, it is Thursday night, therefore, it was just Liesie and me tonight. DH left around 6:35 for band. By 6:50 momma was in jammies and Liesie was wrapped in her very favorite pink blankie. She went to sleep, while I stretched out for a stitchy night. I got a bunch done on the skirt. I am so excited. I think the skirt may be complete this weekend. Hopefully I will be able to locate and repair my error up there in the sleeve area. Perhaps I will even be able to start the fruit border. Dare I even dream!

I am looking forward to the weekend. It should be a nice one. It is supposed to rain here, but that would be perfect stitching weather. Plus my laundry has reformed a mountain, and there are the never ending chores. I am feeling an urge to watch Talledega Nights (Shake and bake!) before the races at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.

DH said that he was reading my blog and saw me waxing poetic about Shrimp and Grits. DH said that he is making a roast chicken for Friday night dinner. However, he would like to work Shrimp and Grits (and bacon!!!) into the weekend menu. Oh, be still my beating heart. DH makes really good cheese grits, so I am totally stoked just thinking about it.

I checked my order status over at Stitching Bits and Bobs. It appears that they are just awaiting a backorder of my Permin chart and then they will ship. I am looking forward to my little package coming with my silks. The colors are so pretty. I am thinking that I will have completed quite a bit of the Lady before they arrive. I feel like a kid at Christmas. There are only 4 silk threads but it feels like a big order for me.

I happened to see that Carolyn over at Just One More Stitch is at the hospital again with her mom. (Carolyn is such a sweet person and posts comments on this blog.) It appears that her mom was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. Please hold Carolyn and her family in your prayers.

Hi! I see that you have finished christmas stocking "Sleigh Ride at Dusk". I am working on this and find that it way above my skills. I had not done cross stitch in more than 15 years and this project was to big for me to undertake. May I ask how long it took you to complete it? Also any idea where I could buy it already finished, at least the cross stitch part? Or find someone to pay to finish mine? Feel free to email me at Thanks!

I see that you have completed stocking "sleigh ride at dusk". I started that several months ago and find that it if beyond my skills level, as I have not cross stitched in more than 15 years. May I ask how long it took you to complete it? Also any ideas on where i could buy it already finished, or at least the cross stitch part finished? Or know anyone that I could pay to complete one for me and how much they might charge to complete one?
