I got a lot of stitching done today. I had such a good day. Yes, it was the anniversary of the World Trade Center Tragedy. It was also the first day of football for me this year. I love me some football. I watched the Bengals vs Browns game at one (we won, whoo hoo), the Giants vs Redskins game at four fifteen (Giants lost, boo), and the Cowboys vs Jets game at eight thirty (Cowboys lost at the last minute, boo). It was great. I got a lot of stitching in, which was really cool. I put in several hundred stitches on Jesus's hair. You can see piccys here:
I also got the Meerkat back from Hobby Lobby today. Well, yesterday. I think it turned out good. I really like the frame I chose. It's really pretty. You can see them here: There is a tiny piece, up in the left top corner that I'm not crazy about, as they only used a tiny little bit of the frame. But I still like it. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
I went over to mom's house Friday night for Harry Potter night. My cousin Beth was away for the weekend (I can't remember where), and mom was off work. We watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which always pisses me off. ***Spoiler ~ Spoiler*** I was pissed off when they burned down The Burrow. It didn't happen in the book, and I was so mad that they did it in the movie. And in the next movie, there was no mention of rebuilding. It just looked the same as it ever did. Grrrr.... ***End Spoiler*** Anyways, I didn't get home till after eleven thirty that night. I put in about seventy stitches on my memorial for dad, then pulled out every one of them cause (are you ready for this) I started it upside down. Yep, I kid you not. Luckily, I had been having trouble with it (couldn't get the waste cloth (regular twenty eight count as they don't make waste cloth in twenty eight count) basted to the towels without getting it crooked, and I didn't have any pins to pin it with. I guess I could have used needles...) so the seventy stitches were all I had to pull out. IDK if I"m gonna make my goal now or not. I only have a week to do it in, and it's hard to stitch on waste canvas sometimes... Since I pulled it all out, no pics. I'll get some good time in on it tomorrow, I hope.
And lastly, I got voicemail on my phone. It was free to add it, thankfully. I had been wanting to do it for a while. When I watched mom's house while she was in San Fransisco, I had to check her messages. And one day, when she didn't have any messages, the thing said, "No new messages. To send a message, press two..." And I was all, "Cool, I can send her a message at three am when I've just remembered something I've been forgetting to tell her." So I can do that now. And I left her three messages the other day. One was to ask her if I could have one of her rocks for Julie to take jewelry pics on. I'm all gung ho about that! So that's the news from here today. Hope you're all having a super night!! (Again, stupid blogger won't let me move my photos to where I want them. I'm gonna give up soon, and just post links all the time.)
