Happy Saturday!

Ok, Take 2 of this post. IE just shut down blogger on me while I was uploading pictures. I hate Vista.

Anywhoo...as I was saying...

It's a glorious Saturday here in Upstate NY. The sun is out and it's warm. Yes, W-A-R-M! Almost 40 degrees warm!  The David and I actually washed the cars out in the driveway and I was wearing a hoodie!  No, I wasn't bundled up to the point where I couldn't move. Contrast today to last Saturday when we were barely above 10 degrees, this is down right balmy. Not complaining one bit. I'll take it and I wish it would be this way for the rest of winter. Not going to happen though, ol' Man Winter has a few snowstorms up his sleeve, I bet.

Anway, back to stitching. I've got pics. Hopefully IE will allow blogger to upload them.  Well, blogger is being a poop and doesn't want to upload all my pics but here's Miss Snow Fairy. She's getting done!  This piece puts a smile on my face.  And it's one of those pieces that I am enjoying every stitch. 



I've made some progress but not as much as I'd like. Miss Snow Fairy now is standing on some snow and her holly is in it's container instead of floating in mid-air.  The week was very busy and I was very tired when I got home so last night really was the only night I stitched for more than an hour.  It was nice. There will be no stitching tonight though, cause we are going to a wedding celebration. My boss' son got married out of state in November and  there wasn't many of us invited to the actual wedding.  So tonight we are going to a party to celebrate the wedding.  It should be ok.  I am a little anxious about it cause I don't really know any of their family and I'm not sure who will be there that I know.  It's at their church so it's going to be dry.  At least I won't have to worry about having too much to drink and saying something stupid.  I'll just do that sober...ha, ha!

When it was so cold outside, the cats took turns laying in front of the fireplace.  Ella is toasting her belly...


And  her back...


This is Frankie. Frankie showed up at our door in the Fall around Halloween. He was really timid and wouldn't let us even touch him. It took him weeks to allow us to pet him.  But today, he rules the roost and is quite content. I really like him.


It's a little unnerving being in one room with 3 housecats and 2 barn cats. I feel like I am turning into one of those crazy old cat ladies hanging out with 5 felines.  (Not really, but...it does get crowded in the family room with all of them.)  Oh, geez, excuse the cat tree.  I didn't realize how terrible it looks.  The cats use it as their scratching post (better than my sofa, although they've managed to claw that too) and I didn't realize how shabby it looks...gee whiz.  The DH and I will have to do some repairs on it.

So, I think I'm going to pull out a bit of stitching or maybe my Kindle.  Thanks for dropping by!  I hope you are having a great weekend.  Until next time, happy stitching!!

You should try using Mozilla Firefox. It works much better than IE.

I just love Miss Snow Fairy. It looks like it would definitely bring on a smile while stitching her. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Hey you crazy cat lady :) I've been trying to talk my DH into another cat and he told me to raise my right hand and repeat after him, we have 4 children, we do not need 3 cats :)
I must say, I think that Frankie is a doll baby...his coloring is so pretty :)
And now after all the cat talk, I'm going to tell you that I personally LOVE your Miss Snow Fairy...how cute!
