3rd finish of the year

Managed to finish one more for the month of January. I loved stitching this easy...almost like it was stitching itself.

I'm hoping to start V tomorrow while watching season 5 of Weeds. I LOVE this whacky and wonderfully written!!

Stash shopping and 2nd finish.....

I went on vacation to Arizona last week to see one of my BFFs. Although the trip wasn't nearly long enough, we had a great time!! She was able to take Wednesday off and we had a girly day. We were able to her LNS, Needlers Nest, and I walked out with these patterns/kits. The kits were 15% off, too. I think all of these fit me to a "T". After that we hit her favorite place, The Olive Garden, which was delish. I can gorge myself on the salad and breadsticks and never get sick of it!! LOL

I had every intention of finishing "U" while I was out there, but I didn't bring any 3371 with me and it just happened that TDee didn't have any either. So, I finished it earlier this week.

I would've finished it Sunday, but I couldn't while watching the Saints/Vikings game. That game was so damn intense. No way in hell that I was able to stitch!!! It was a nail biter and I can't tell you how thrilled I am that the boys pulled it off! We are going to make our first Super Bowl appearance EVER!!!! This city was on fire after winning the NFC Championship Sunday night. People were hooting and hollering in the street, fireworks going off and "Who Dat?" chants everywhere. It was just amazing!! This city is totally pumped and we can hardly wait for February 7th!!!

First finish for 2010

My first finish for 2010! And barely 3 weeks in! LOL

A friend of mine sent me this LHN pattern, but no Crescent Colours thread because, of course, she had used them. So, I had a friend of mine help me with substituting DMC for the CC threads. It's not as bright as the original colors are, but I think it came out pretty good. There was a bit of frogging to do because the color we originally picked was all wrong for the hair and arms. So, a substitution was made and there you have it.

Started on 1/10/10, finished on 1/17/10.

I've been officially on vacation since yesterday, Saturday, and I'm leaving tomorrow to fly to AZ to visit with her. Hopefully, I'll come back with another finish :) I've packed U is for Unlocked and another LHN project to work on during the week.

I'll be coming home just in time to see the Saints kick some Viking ass! Watching the game last night was sooooooooo much fun. To see the Saints so pumped and playing so damn well does a heart good. After the game, my neighbors were shooting fireworks to celebrate the win. One more game and we'll be Super Bowl bound! Miami better roll out the red carpet for my boys :)

First 2010 update!!!!

Happy 2010, folks!!!! I hope y'all have a happy and healthy upcoming year!!! Did anyone make any resolutions?? I don't make any cuz I never stick to them! LOL

Here's the latest on U is for Unlocked.

I haven't stitched in over a week because I decided to crochet a blanket. It's navy blue and done in all double crochet. And that's cuz I don't remember any of the other stitches!! I had to go to youtube to remind me how to do a damn slipknot! LOL I'll take a picture of it when it's further along.
