Snow n More Snow n A Suprise n Learnin' X Stitch

Hi ya'll I hope this post finds ya' in GREAT spirits =0}
Wow what a week here so far ! With all the lovely new snow on top of the snow we all ready had that hadn't even melted yet....School canceled the last 2 days and I was stuck at home today myself.
We got almost 9 inches here yesterday. It was a fairly heavy snow as you can see in the pic below.....
It has this poor Pine Tree weighted down....
And there sayin' maybe more this weekend.....Better keep them shovels out and ready !! (talkin' to you honey ;0})

Hubby was able to get out on Monday mornin' around 5 a.m. in my car before it got really bad only to be sent back home at 10:00 a.m. as the snow was really fallin' by then. So today we all had a snow day at home....Jess played xbox, Kenz talked on the phone (imagine that lol that girl was born with a phone attached to her ear !!!) and Hubbs helped me turn doll parts and while I did some stuffin' and sewin'. Back to work tomorrow though =( I'm just hopin' I don't walk into a mess.....The route drivers still ran so that means 2 days of returns plus what wasn't finished on Saturday to go through...ughhhhhhhh I'm pooped just thinkin' about it !!!

I did get a few dolls and some Easter bowl fillers all finished up and got 'em listed on my sellin' blog and I'm teachin' myself to x stitch.
This is the project I'm workin' on......

This is how far I've gotten so far....

I messed up the red rows =( But when I got to the S I figured out what I was doin' wrong.....I think I'll just leave it as is though. Now that I'm gettin' the hang of it I'm likin' doin' it. Just what I need though somethin' else to add to my I like to make list lol......
Any of you experienced X stitchers out there wanna share some pointers ? lol......Does the S look correct ?

****I have an announcement to make to.......****

TJ, looks like you got all the snow we were suppose to get..and didn't. I don't like the heavy stuff...to hard to shovel.

Girl, you are ultra talented! Look at those Xs.

You know I wanna enter your give away! Where do I sign? I'll be doing another give away at this end of this month too...aren't they sooo much fun! I love em too.

Do your ever read those word verifications? Mine for this comment post is "dispect"...so close to a real word, why can't they just spell it right? LOL!

Please add my name to your mystery giveaway! Looking forward to what you come up with for extra entries. I used to cross stitch but after eye surgery I cant seem to do much at a time. I still have a project on the go from last year! Yours looks great!

We have more snow than I care to talk about. It took me 8 attempts this morning to try and get my car from the back of my house where the garage is to the front of the house so I could go the rest of the way down the drive. Normally the drive is plowed but we just haven't been able to keep up with all the snow that we've had.
Enough talk about the white stuff. I love your cross stitching. You are doing a fantastic job. You should be very proud of yourself.
Count me in for your big surprise. I will try to link it to my blog but I'm not real good at things like that. Can't wait to play the bingo game!
Stay safe,

Debbie said...

We got a light dusting of snow but that was it. They are talking about more possibly on Friday. Please enter me in your giveaway. I know it will be special! I have blogged about it and put it on my side bar too.


ps: Thank you for your offer to help with Prim Pals! *hugs* I will email you with what I have so far.

Melissa Bowman said...

Everyone around here made a big deal about the 3 whole inches of snow we got last Friday. It had all melted by that afternoon. The week before had days in the 70's. You got to love that Texas weather. I don't know if I could live in a town that gets as much snow as you guys get.

A mystery giveaway sounds like so much fun!!! Please sign me up, and I will definately be adding this mystery giveaway to my blog.

So Much Fun, Melissa

Angie Berry said...

Wow girl, that's a lot of snow!! But guess you already knew that.

I think your cross stitching looks great for just picking it up! I've been doing it since '89 and the best advice I can give you is do your best to be consistent on how tight your stitches are and it'll look good.

YAH! Another drawing! Awesome! Well I already added your giveaway to my sidebar so come visit me and you'll see it listed with some other wonderful giveaways! Thanks girl!
