finals and freebies

Hi everyone! I have Dante this morning, so this will be short, but yes, I passed my finals. I got a C in accounting... but it is better than some of the alternative. I got a B in Supervisory Skills. I was so focused on accounting however, that I do believe I could have gotten an A otherwise. Not a big deal, it is what it is... and I am enjoying my two new classes. :) I wanted to share a link with you to some freebies I found this morning. I have some squares to send off. I am glad that I looked these up, because there are some great tutorials at the site as well.... It is french... so if that deters you... do not click lol BUT the freebies are cute! Laura who plans to blog much more tomorrow I also have sent off some exchanges, and will post pics when they arrive... :)Laura

On Saturday Dante was over longer than usual :) He fell asleep on my shoulder after we went to my mom`s house... he slept for 2 hours... I love that feeling, then he awoke - abit drowsy and said, "Andma?" So cute... when he realized he was still in my arms, he drifted off for a bit more. I love the simplicity of being a child... I love being... andma! Laura

Happy Dancing for a gift recieved from Staci

package from staci valent valentine beanbag back from staci Wow... :) Tonight I have recieved quite a treat... I would have known the beautiful stitching the moment I saw it, even had I not read the card... Staci, is such an artist :) She made me this absolutely gorgeous bean bag Valentine... :) I have never had a stitched bean bag and am treasuring it already! Staci`s stitching is exquisite! She sent a ton of goodies as well which included 3 fabbies, one of which just today I was drooling over at Wally World :)... thank you! A cute heart shaped teaspoon set, :) I think I may have a collection started by now of teaspoons ... I am thrilled :)... A chocolate bar, the cutest card... and the bean bag was wrapped beautifully in white tissue paper, and had the cutest tie... Thank you Staci... You rock! :) Happy Dancing Laura

Dante, teeth and an ouchie

Photobucket Here is a shot where you can see Dante`s teeth... He had one a week ago, and since then has gotten another. Tonight he was over and fell asleep on my shoulder ... :) I love that.... he is awesome. Notice too, in the pic, he has gotten his first ouchie.... standing up means falling down, and apparently he fell onto the tv stand ... he is doing well, though, and quite ready to master his new skills ;) Happy Stitching ! Laura

I have finished my section of Laura's Dark Sorceress. I won't be long before we are finished with our pretty ladies.

Saturday, January 10, 2009


I am so excited :) this morning when I woke up I was pretty scared about my accounting final... but tonight, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. :) YAY only one more page left... and it is not a hard one... but I need a break... so I will do it first thing and then my other essay. I am good at writing... and so I am not at all afraid of that one... especially since it is about supervisory skills... that is what I do ... :) the only thing is formatting, that part is never fun... oh well.. I am pleased... I will not set my alarm... :) and I will stitch for an hour when I awake... I did that this morning as well... and also had Dante today... and saw my mom... :) I think the break did wonders, as I saw it all with fresh eyes. I made an etsy banner and put it in my sales... as well... so it has been a wonderful day here.. :) HUGS to all who need em Laura who thanks you all for the wonderful comments lately... I will respond next week... oh - how could I forget, my counsellor called and told me I am recieving a book, but that it will not get here in time, so I get the week off :) YAY

progress on Peppermint Twist

progress on peppermint twist closeup of snowflakes pepperm t closeup of snowflakes closeup progress peppermt twist noel Here is my progress for the week on Peppermint Twist... thought I would share... I have used my own colors and fabbie choices... and I wish the picture showed them better, perhaps one day they will - in the right light... Also this is a stitchalong, we stitch at least every Monday.
Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket So, finally I will post some recent pictures of Dante... here he is in his new outfit which I got on sale :) I think he looks adorable in it, and it just seems so much more comfortable than some of his other outfits :)... (he has some growing room lol) You can also see here that I am pretty proud of him :) ignore the room in progress... it seems that this place will never be right... although I am sure it will. Finally, is a picture of a necklace that I bought of two crowns with faux diamonds in them... the little one signifies my grandson, Dante, and the big one signifies grandma :) I just thought it was adorable... hope this finds you all well...


Photobucket Here is a recent stitchy finish that I had... I stitched this ornie just in case a replacement stitcher was needed on HOE, but it seems all is well, so I thought I would show it off a bit :) Laura

Thank you :)

I just wanted to say Thank you to Andrea, who encouraged me a while back to join etsy and create a store. Although it only has a few small things in it, I have done so :) Thank you Andrea. I posted a widget to the page on the right :) so you all can see what is in my shop, if you would like. I used a mini etsy shop, and created a widget. I accept paypal, so that made this super easy :) I had so many reasons I thought I could not do this, but it is easier than I thought!!! Happy Stitching :) my finals are still coming along, and I have managed to stitch a bit each night... :)
