revising the list of 15

I had full intentions of having most of my 15 projects be new. I have reconsidered and am going to have new and 8 WIP/UFOs. I will post that list tomorrow as I now have to walk to hall of shame and collect 8 WIP/UFOs ...

I most likely will not be posting later today so everything is being transfer to the Mac Book - I am spoiled!

I did finish the mitten and started something new ( it's a take to work on my break project)I will post pics when I figure out how to did it on my Mac

Until next time...

Merry Ho Ho everyone!

Well  that's another one done and a fully spoiled lot at the Butler household... wow! Phil bought me a Mac Book Pro --- wow! Apparently I just take it into Simply computing and they will set it all up for me... WOW!Spoiled! I also received a gift certificate to Lulu --- I am completely overwhelmed -- so much that earlier today a migraine reared it's ugly head... oh well to bed I soon go...

The kids have had an excellent couple of days. We went to my brother and sister inlaws last night and it was so much fun. They then came home to open one present ( Maggie always asks for the pj type present to open) Here they are last night

Here they are hamming it up! So cute!

Here are the treats for Santa !

 The kids got up at 7:45am which was decent. I was up before them! We had a great morning opening presents with my Mom and the kids were spoiled! Ben got two new Monopoly playing toques--- A sock monkey mowhaw and a Gumba. We are in trouble now.Santa gave him Monopoly Streets for Wii and the kids have palyed two games already.

Here's the mitten- it is so close to being finished- I have such a headache but can't seem to stop stitching on it. I need therapy!

Until next time...

Here we go the final push...

I have had a not so nice time with this sinus infection - I am better but have realized I am not super woman and need to just admit defeat when I need to. I stood in the cold for three hours yesterday ring the bells for the Salvation Army and probably shouldn't have. Oh well. I came home tuck my toes in and slept for a bit.

Today I am working later so I am working on the stocking and waiting for Ben to wake up as we are playing Monopoly this am. I'm taking Mags to work for 11:45 so I will pick up the last of the shopping. I have groceries to do still and then I am done. There is all that wrapping... I am not going to think of that right now.

Here's some pictures of the latest progress

Until next time...

I did some cleaning of "The Room" and discovered...

I could easily  go without ever buying another stitching anything - stitch for the rest of my life quite happily. It's a sad sick disease I have that needs a 12 step program I think. I could easily start the 15 projects in 15 day without having to order anything. I may just do that... I did find 15 ufos or so --- should I just go with thoses? What do you think?

Until next time...

Getting ready for the party...

Tomorrow is the BFACP- The Butler Family Annual Christmas Party.  We are busy getting the house in shape. I am heading to bed now as I over did it today. I hit Costco, Wal Mart, Bowring and Home Sense. Tomorrow is Nuts and Bolts day. I make a batch for various people and one for my brother. He doesn't like to share so it is much easier on all concerned for him to have his very own batch.  I will post pictures on the party Sunday

Until next time...

Now that's taken care of...

I believe I have shared my slight obession with Colin Firth before ... I love him as an actor and now as a human being as I heard of an article in which a female writer was interviewing him at lunch- the waiter asked if she would like fries or salad and my Colin Firth said something like -she will have the fries- then after the waiter left he said fries don't count if someone else orders them for you... I LOVE THIS MAN.

Now for the progress on the stocking...The picture is not the best but it coming along. I am planning on a day with Mr Darcy and the stocking.

Until next time...


hmmm contemplating ...

Well- as crazy as it seems I am contemplating the start of the 15 projects in the first 15 days of January--- what do you think? My friend Sue will think I'm nuts but I know I ceratinly have 15 projects to start. I may gather 15 ufos instead... YES - I am sure I can find that many ufos. As I type I believe it will be ufos and perhaps a new project or two.

I am taking a sick day to sleep and get better today.I can use the time to working on the stocking. Phil has a headache so I better go get him a cup of tea and some Advil.

Until next time...

The tree is up...

It doesn't have lights yet but it is up! I mentioned earlier this week I have had a migraine. This morning I woke up with a crusty eye and all kinds of ickies coming out of my nose... hhhmmm. Off to work I went and more ickies and a migraine hhhhmmm I dialed my doctor who was over booked and yelling in the background for me to come now off on my lunch break I went. Diagnosis --- sinus infection draining causing crusty eye and migraine... hhhmmmm. Antibiotics,antibiotic eye drop and antibiotic nasal spray --- check! I am waiting now for all of it to work.

I am excited that I will soon have my head back to normal... as normal as it can be anyway... The Angels are coming for a stitch and brunch Sunday and I am looking forward to it. It will be even better now!Yay!

On the stitching front the stocking coming along SWEET!

Until next time...

So much to do and so little time...

Today will be busy day. I have to finish up the Christmas shopping, work on the stocking and drive Emma to various acting and singing type things. I have a migraine hangover and really would just like to sleep all day.

The happy travellers are home Friday. Yay! I am super excited as we have missed them. They are off to London by train to spend a few days and then it's home. The time sure has gone fast!Wow!

I will try and post some pictures tonight of the stocking as it is coming along.

Until next time,

On the agenda ...

I am off to work shortly and then it's groceries, running, laundry,decorating and stitching. My head does not hurt at the moment and this is making me SUPER happy. Ben hasn't been feeling well so we will have a quite day today. I want him to learn to ice skate this winter so that may be in our future tomorrow.

High ho everyone!

Until next time,

I am making slow progress on the stocking --- I want to get a dent in it today so I will post a pic asap. I taped all kinds of tv so I am off to sleep a bit and watch my show --- then stitch~

Until next time,

I have a reaaly great job... really I do

Today I just feel like I have been kicked in the teeth. It just was not a good day. I am suffering from a wretched migraine and had to prensent my year end business results... WHICH WERE AMAZING btw but when you are the top store for sales in two districts you get attacked by those who enjoy finding your flaws. I am done for today and perhaps tomorrow but I will of course be there for Friday morning

Until next time,
