i think my mojo is returning... woohooo

heya ladies..

well i think my mojo is starting to come back.. at least a little.. i actually picked up my mermaid and did a little on her this week... not enough for a picture yet... but.. some.. lol... hopefully by next weeks posting i'll have something to show..    i even got up to the studio this weekend and worked on a couple of quilting projects too....

now ... the question is... how do i hold onto it??...  we go to Vegas on the 7th... and.. i'm afraid my mojo will decide to take another vacation too... lol... unfortunately... when it takes a vacation... it tends to take weeks and weeks.. and i can't afford to do that.. i have too much to do... i still have to make my dad's quilt for christmas.. as well as a bunch of other stuff..

Elaine... send me a pic of your little pixie..  (and your mermaid if you've done anything more on her lately.. ) i'll post that on here for you...  this blog doesn't have to be just for the mermaid cross stitch..  we can do other cross stitch things ... as well as some quilting stuff too...  it's just a ... for US blog.. so.. as far as i'm concerned... anything goes.. :D

Nicki... don't forget to pack your mermaid to go on vacation with you... that might be the only time you'll get to work on her for a while.. lol..  then post a pic...  let us see how she looks..

Patti... i want your Bali star quilt when you're done... you know my address... lol... it is absolutely breathtaking!!... i love it!... as for what cross stitch pic to start... well since you don't want to get tooo far ahead of us with your mermaids... why don't you start the christmas santa one.. hell at the rate the rest of us are going on our mermaids... and the speed you stitch at... you'll probably finish the santa one  before we get our first mermaids done... lol..

I Got Plenty Of Nuttin Too!!!

Hi Ladies,

I have to say that since Mikki arrived a month ago I haven't touched any xstitch at all. Do you know that a 12 week old puppy can unroll an entire roll of toilet paper all over the house in the time it takes to take a 5 minute shower!!!!!!!!!!! She's keeping me on my toes. In addition to her I have also taken up water aerobics and am going 6 times a week. Can you say OUCH!!!!! What part of my body doesn't hurt!!!!!!!!!!!

Well even though I haven't done any xstitch I have been working on this project for the last 4 months for a class. Thought you might like to see some pics of my Paper piecing bali wedding star quilt. I hope to finish this project up in the next month or two. I still have to add all the corners and then square it up, because I am adding a flying geese border. Yes, I did say flying geese border. I know that those words are 4 letter words to Sheryl. lol
So when I finish that up I will get back to xstitching again. Shall I work on the next Mermaid or start on the Miribilia xmas project. What do you ladies think?

i've got nuthing!

hello girls..

i'm back from my trip to NY.. it was the trip from hell!.. but i had a good time with my sister.. but with all the drama going on.. i didn't do a stitch on any of my cross stitch pics... then ... when i got home.. i got sick.. and didn't feel like doing a damn thing... so my mermaids are unchanged...  i'm hoping to finish up my "Chickens?!" picture this week and then i'll get back to my mermaids..

elaine.. when you're ready.. just send me your updated mermaid blob pic and i'll post it for you...
