Happy Holidays to all my Stitching Friends!

I am wrapping gifts and baking cookies at the moment but really wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays and a safe Happy New Year!  Finally the post office is slowing down from the holidays so I can get back to my stitching.  I have been working from 7 am to 6 pm 6 days a week for the past two weeks.  I have been delivering at least 100 packages a day besides the mail.  It has been crazy there!
At the moment I am on my 5th batch of cookies which is Lemon-Coconut Cream Drops
The next batch is Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cookies using real Chocolate covered cherries
I will be having my traditional Christmas party tomorrow and my whole family will be here.  I do like making cookie platters for my family to take home :)
Will update...........

Cannot Believe It Is Winter!!!!

New Kitten First Caught

It is in the 60 here in Rhode Island!  Cannot believe it is almost Christmas and the weather is just beautiful.  Most of my Christmas shopping is done and I have most of my decorating done.  Now the start of baking my cookies.
Stitching news?  NaDa! Working at the post office is keeping me from that.  I am working 6 days a week from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.  When I get home I am so tired.  The stitching will have to wait until after Christmas unless I have a easy day which does not look promising.
Sleeping on my daughter
Cat Rescuing?  I have caught another kitten which I have in a taming cage but since he is so easy to train, I do allow him out for play everyday.  Here is a couple of pics of the new feral/tamed kitten.

Awake and purring

Happy Stitching!

Really !  I am now frogging quite a few stitches from Booville.  Stoney Creek with their using the same symbols but two colors meaning to different colors! Will be back with an update hopefully tomorrow :)

Has it Been That Long!!!

WoW it has been a few weeks since I posted.  I have not been stitching the past 3 weeks.  After catching the flu I lost my mojo.  But, I have decided to stitch on Witches of Booville tonight while watching the X-Factor.  I am wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Be Safe.

With Susan Coming!!!

Well, I am hearing Susan will be hitting here on Monday!  I want to let everyone know to keep your pets inside and pamper them during the storm because they will be nervous and need your love : )  I have one furbaby Gui that goes outside.  He is in lock down until this hurricane is over.  I am sure he will not be happy but oh well!!

Yeah, here is a pic of Gui but he is content here.

Sick and Waiting For Susan!!

I am so sorry for not posting for so long!!   I have been battling the flu for the past two weeks and hoping I am on the mend now. Now I am watching Sandy which will be hitting here in RI. Probably no  power for a few days so if you dont hear from me you know why!  Talk soon and love you all.

Contest Time Not Stitch Related!!!

  Since Ashli starts at Bryant University next Tuesday I am having another contest!  This is not a stitch related prize.  The giveaway is to 2 winners.  This is a give away for USA only! I am giving away 2 subscriptions of 1 year of Taste of Home Magazines! That is 7 issues!  Here is how you win.  The first person who can name what Ashley wants to be when she graduates and another first person names here favorite candy including the brand name and her favorite flavor will win the subscriptions.  Just remember only one to a person since who would want two subscriptions to the same magazine.  I know I have posted what she wanted to be in another blog but it has changed since then.
Good Luck to all of you!

How Was Your Thursday???

My Thursday was OK nothing really exciting happened today but the weather was beautiful and sunny, not to humid today.  Last night went out to bring Guy in and saw a baby skunk which was soooo cute!  Didn't spray but I think skunks that young can't spray.  Didn't stay long enough for me to take a pic.  No stitching so far tonight but the night is young : )  Need a photo,  Hmmm lets see....
Graybee who is now over the rainbow bridge and Guy when he was still a babe : )
Graybee is the solid grey was such a sweetheart.  Hope everyone is doing well!

Well I have worked on the Mystery Stitch and have an update!  Anyone have an idea yet?
Took a vacation day today and enjoyed the pool.  It was a beautiful day in the 80s today.  I baked some awesome Mocha Crackle Cookies. YUM!!!
Have a couple of pics of my adopted ferals, Puss and Batman.
Here is Puss
She is mentally challenged but adorable!  She cannot see well and her abilities are limited.

Here is my sweet Batman! He is another adorable one : )
They are two of my rescued feral turned pets.
I can hold Puss but it is limited on her terms.  Batman, I can pet him constantly but cannot hold him. Batman has come along way though since we couldn't get near him for months.

95 Friendly Followers! Give Away When I reach 100!

I am almost at 100 friendly followers!  My 100th follower will win a prize from me : )  And yes it will be stitchy related lol.

Here is my Orchid plant it has been blooming since April!  First year ever having them.  Wow they last a long time!

Here are my Morning Glorys they are going wild and decided to take over my umbrella, lol.

I have a question for all of you!  This is my Mystery plant.  It is growing quite fast and I do not know what it is.  A friend of mine got them from a yard sale which then there was nothing blooming.  So she gave them to me and said maybe something will grow lol.  I have two of the big ceramic clay pots and the leaves look to be at least 12 inches wide or more.  Then there are some smaller leaves with green and red without the white.  Anyone know what type of plant this is?  Will show more pics as the plant gets bigger.  If that is possible, lol.

Well, last I want to show you what we had for dinner tonight.  Homemade Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza, YUM!!

Seriously now, back to stitching : )
