What Do You Mean Stitch AND Watch TV????

I don't know what happens when other stitchers watch TV and stitch at the same time; but I know what doesn't happen when I try. STITCHING!!! Try 30 stitches over the course of 4 hours. I didn't even post pics. I didn't have the heart to share my shame with the world. The Virgin Queen was great though. I love the story of the Tudors. So much DIRT!!!!!! I know...I know, Such a nosey Parker.
In other news, this was the third day that DDD#3 was home with mommy. Her barking cough is slowly but surely rectifying itself. I really wanted to send her packing with the other two but she had a bit of a fever. So it was home sweet home for her AGAIN. It wouldn't have been so bad except for that fact that I am SICK too and was OUT for the bulk of the day.
Thank goodness for the fact that DH went to work on a later shift.
DD#2 is so excited because she made the Safety Patrol at school, she looked so cute when she came home all bebdecked in her sashand badge. When I saw her I thought about Percy of "Harry Potter" and the prefect's badge. I promis that I will post pics later.

Snowy and the Frog

Introducing "Snowy"!!!!!!!! I finished him at exactly 2:10 a.m., with a very pissed stitching frog in the room. I had no trouble from the dreaded RIP-IT Squad until I set about the beading. Then there was chaos. I had to take out EVERY single bead I put in the mouth! (TWICE)
I guess I don't have to tell you that the language in the room was more than a little rank. I was soo scared that I was going to damage the stitches underneath because I had to pull the needle back through thread and silver blending filament. As you can see, I made it! My first finish of 2009 is in the bag and I am off to a new start tomorrow...or should I say today!

Snowy and the Ornie Challange

Introducing "Snowy" she is my first WIP of 2009. I promised that I was going to be good and not post until she was done, but she took longer than I thought. I was not expecting that from such a small piece but the color changes were a bear.
She is the first of 12 ornies that I hope to complete by the end of the year. Can I do it?
I hope so!
