Crazy crazy crazy

There are days when I think - blog I must blog and then something else comes up. I have no excuse , I have not been myself lately- I have signed up for two half marathons in October - CRAZY I know but I need a goal. I also start my 300 hour yoga course in October - October will be busy .

On the stitching front I am finished Lizzie Kate's "HALLOWEEN RULES " Yay! 

I'm now working on SB's Winter Moon. I am a collector of kits and patterns so I need to start stitching the collection. 
 On the kid front SO much to catch on - Mags got into her dream program at SFU. Emma is off to NYC in less than two weeks and Ben got a fabulous new computer. Those are the highlights --- lol

What's new with you

The latest...

I FINALLY have finished "Mind Your Mummy" and "Sit a Spell" it feels like it has taken FOREVER ! I guess I just had a block there. I only have 4 to go!!!! 

I've been sick AGAIN with a sinus infection and head cold - so frustrating! I'm off this weekend. I have decided to make some lifestyle changes - gluten free (attempting anyway) and greatly reducing the amount of wine I drink - I'm hoping to finally reduce it to none but we will see - won't that make Phil happy lol

Emma has submitted her resume and head shots to a casting director and agent - woot she has finally done something here! 

Maggie is so busy with school and work - it keeps us out of trouble

Ben continues to be Ben

I'm off to a a 3 hours yoga course today - so excited! Tomorrow is groceries! Who lives an exciting life!
Until next time... J

Progress -

I'm excited to share my latest progress on Halloween Rules. I'm slowly plugging thru - it's almost time to set it aside - I'm getting slightly frustrated and I am not really sure why. Hmmm - it's coming along - 
I had a weeks vacation which consisted of not very much of anything - it was awesome ! 

I've been accepted into a yoga teachers program - so excited ! 

Not much else to report ...

Until next time

More progress

Here's the latest progress  on Lizzie Kate's Halloween Rules - I started a Nora Corbett for my sisters girls but there is not much to post - the plan with that one is work on it with the Angels when we are not stitching here - it's done in silks - it's lovely 

Until next time,

New Year new goals

Wow when it rains it pours - Ben managed to compromise his immune system so much he broke out head to toe in a measles type rash - that was our last week in a nut shell. I'm glad it is over.

On the stitching front progress has been made on Lizzie Kate - Halloween Rules
I'm really loving this piece again. I have been working on a couple others but this is where my head is at right now. 

Emma and I are off to pick a memory card and some groceries - thank goodness for days off!

Until next time

Happy New Year !

Door is shut and locked on 2013 moving on...

New start !

The girls went to separate NYE parties and both were home before 9am. Emma - the luckiest employee in the world  got a call from her boss and didn't have to go in today -that girl ...

I spent the morning coughing and playing Dr Who Monopoly - Phil won... He had to then head to McDs for the rest of us. Don't feel too sorry he got a latte and three poached eggs on toast in bed this am. I should have planned that out better as he maybe expecting that every time I'm sick or off.

Emma and I watched The 5 year engagement this afternoon. We snuggled with the black and whites. It was lovely. I'm now continuing my revisit with Six Feet Under. So dark but entertaining. 

Here are a couple of finishes - finally!
This is Hometown Holiday - Main Street Station - Little House Needleworks  

I have been throwing a few stitches in each day I've been sick- not much progress but I'm working on it slowly 

Until next time,

As we close out 2013 I can say that this whole year has been a year of fear. The relationships in my life have been questioned, my ability to do my job questioned and the general way I live my life suspect. It all sounds negative doesn't? I think it does but I sure learned so very much!

I'm not interested in 2013 anymore that door is closing and I will be locking it. I have spent the last 5 days in bed with a sinus infection and pneumonia. It's been wretched. It snuck up on me and I kick my arse. I have managed to accomplish nothing in these past 5 days except sewing up an infinity scarf for Mags - she likes it so that's good. I may get some stitching done but who knows. The dr in the er insisted I not go back until Monday - WHAT??? I am very sure I won't be able to stay away from my store until then.

Plans for 2014???

- I will run the BMO Van half with my best friend
- I will finish Halloween Rules by LK
- I will begin and continue a solid yoga practise- my darling children have bought me a gc to Hot Box here in Kelowna so as soon as I have my breathe back I will be yoging it up lol

That's about all!

Until next time...
