total stitch fail

Well that darn green thing showed up at my house tonight so had to rip out almost everything I stitched last night frig! I am so mad cause I am so close to the backstitching/bead stage grrrrrr.

Well I don't think I will be restitching tonight, instead I am going to figure out another pattern I want to do for a friend and then go to bed. Oh by the way the exam I thought I failed I passed yeehaw. Hopefully I will find out other before friday and if I passed the wine is coming out!!!!

Found out today that my generousness mother in law sent me 100$ for Christmas. I have been having problems holding my q-snaps and with the SAL coming on I thought it might be a good idea to purchase a lap stand for the bigger project.

This is what I decided on, I hope I made a good choice. I will be picking it up on Saturday at my LNS along with the threads for my B&B. I have another stand called the third arm and it holds everything but sometimes I feel its to complicated just for the couch. I think when I get my upstairs back from my FIL it will go permanently up there when I want to stitch in the recliner.

Oh by the way those dumb amo boxes I bought and received today were the wrong ones ugh. Now I have no idea what the right ones were and am so frustrated I wasted my money because its too complicated to send back.

Late Thursday evening

Well for most of you, you get to stitch this weekend while I get to work :(  Oh well my turn for a weekend. I worked my butt off cleaning and getting things done tonight so maybe tomorrow will be an easy day. Our community has it Crazy Carstairs Christmas  tomorrow night. There is a craft show live nativity,f ire works, Santa, hot chocolate, hot-dogs, and I think crafts for the kids. Mostly done outside so thank God we are having a Chinook wind and its plus 6 instead of -30. Anyways tomorrow night will hopefully be packed of funness for my three year old. I am slowly still getting my tiger ready for the SAL and received the fabric today. I am still waiting to pick up my threads I ordered November to work on my black widow some more and I ordered a special pattern to do for my moms b-day in January but looks like the way Heinzet works I wont be receiving it until summer (over reacting) but really when you tell a store you will have it by the end of November and now its the middle of December its ridiculous! Anyways guess I will have to be an extremely fast stitcher and see what magic I can pull off.

Well jsut wanted to chat so there is whats going on here, hopefully your someplace warm and snuggled in with your stitching.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, I am procrastinating because I should be studying for my exams but they are so boring to me.  I hope I can get my butt into gear or I am in a lot of trouble for Mondays exam.
