Where Does The Time Go?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am not sure where the time has gone? There is always so much to do and never enough time. Do we do this to ourselves? I would say that I do. I don't know about the rest of you. I personally can't wait until tonight. Everything has to be done. And then I am taking a few days off. But I have to run already this morning......more to do of course. Tomorrow its me and my stitching and my comfy chair!!

I hope that everyone takes a little time to slow down and relax. Enjoy the season and the people in your life. There never seems to be enough time just for that.

Until next time, Happy Stitching.

Thanksgiving Trip To Disney World

We had the most wonderful time at Walt Disney World over Thanksgiving. We flew out on the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. Wednesday it rained most of the day in Orlando. So we spent the day running from shop to shop in Downtown Disney and we went to the mall. But the rest of the time was beautiful! It was a little chilly on some of the days, but for the most part it was great!!
I thought that I would share a few of the photos of our trip. Here is DD and I at Minnie's house in the Magic Kingdom. I love this snap.
This is the kids at Epcot Center. They love to have their faces painted.
Here is DD at the Bibbibi Bobbidi Boutique at Downtown Disney. They did her hair, makeup and nails. She loves to have her "spa" days!! But then again what girl doesn't?
And her is our favorite ride......The Magic Tea Cups! Too bad Daddy doesn't like spinny rides! The kids and I think that they are the best!!
It truly is the happiest place on earth! It is one of our favorite places!!

I will post some more tomorrow! I will have snaps to share of my sewing room.

Until next time, Happy Stitching!!

How A Month Can Fly

Wow! I can hardly believe that it has been a month since I have posted here!! I have been following my favorites, but haven't had a chance to post. So over the next couple of days, I will post all the news of the last month and pictures of what has been happening. And there has been quite a lot, however, not nearly as much stitching as I would like.

There have been several large things going on in our life right now. I had posted last month regarding my sewing room and the catastrophe with the radiators leaking down the wall. It is now ALMOST done. I have to hang up a few more things. And I have to get the counter top on my long cabinet, but it just isn't in yet. I am going to post pictures of that later today. I waited too long to take the pics, but it was too dark and I just couldn't get the color to come out right. So I will take them tomorrow and then post. All I can say is that it was a VERY long process, but I think it was well worth the wait! I am EXTREMELY happy with the outcome for my sewing room. It is so different.

I have been doing a great deal of training for corrections officers around our state and it has been keeping my very busy. I was supposed to have one tomorrow, however they wanted to reschedule for January and I was never so excited!! I just need a break and this was VERY welcome.

We have most of the Christmas decorations up. I have a couple more things to put up and I am going to do that tomorrow. I have been doing Christmas shopping and am just about finished. I have a couple of small things to get and then to wrap them up. This is the latest it has been in a long time for me to get things wrapped up. Usually I am done at Thanksgiving with my gift list.

I was lucky enough to take a stitching class back in the middle of November. I took a silk gauze class. I have never worked on silk gauze, but I absolutely LOVE it!! Even though I have to put on those darn little reading glasses. Just a little too small for me to see easily.

And of course I can't forget that we fit a week long visit to Disney World in there. We took the kids over Thanksgiving and had the best time!! We spent 3 days in the Magic Kingdom, one day in Hollywood Studios and one day in Epcot Center. I will post those pictures this week for you all to see. It was great!

So as you can see, it has just been crazy here. But that is how life is. So I will show you what it looks like and the little bit of stitching that I have been doing.

So until next time, Happy Stitching!
