Not a good picture. My tree started leaning toward the front away from the wall. I think it was because Rebel ( baby girl cocker spaniel) was getting behind it and going underneath to rub her back under the branches.. lol It did not have a tree skirt under it this year.. It did to begin with but again... before presents went under the tree, Rebel drug it out from under tree and made herself a bed.. I didn't tie the skirt together.. My fault. lol I didn't have the heart to take it away from her. She has taken it over now.. I will have it get a a small blanket to lay on, and try and get the tree skirt away from her.. Since she was groomed, she was been so cold.. She will get in front of the heater with her sweater on and almost catch herself on fire. I have to keep an eye on her. I will try and get a picture of her, in her sweater tomorrow. She loves them. Till Later...

Raeanne has had 2 bad Christmases while young. My memories for today. 1st up... Chicken Pox at Christmas the year Santa brought her a bike... I have a picture somewhere .. Her posing with her bike with calamine dots all on top of her all over breakout. Didn't make it to of the family get togethers. Mom, Dad & Trey came over on Christmas to see what Santa brought. Raeanne could not even ride her new bike..Memory 2... Raeanne's 12th Christmas Holiday. She went shopping with Mom & her sisters.. Aunt Debbi said she kept wanting something to drink every 20 minutes..
She had they don't know how many Big Gulps. I was working one day and called to check in home on her. She answered and was incoherent. I left took her to the doctor. They admitted her that night into the Hospital. Diabetes... Didn't see that coming. She was in the hospital the week right before Christmas Day. She has had Diabetes for 16 years now and through pregnancy's with Beautiful Grandchildren. This last with Zoe a ruff Pregnancy. I want to share many more Christmases with my family..

I have not stitched much since I am still moving stuff. Unloaded about the 8th trip in the Tahoe just awhile ago.. I was up all night.. I have my bed... It is just in a different location... LOL Can't sleep... I played solitaire from about 3:00 am to 6:00 on the laptop this morning. Went to sleep at 7:00 ... Woke up at 10:30.. I am tired.
Tomorrow I will be trying to clean out sun porch and get it ready for the Christmas tree. Not any room in the living area.. Mom's house is looking festive when we went by there earlier. She had wreaths on the windows and greens on the banisters, on the front porch and down her steps at the road. No will ever see my place so, I don't decorate outside. I did when Raeanne was little. I just thought.... WOW... I do have a cedar tree about 7 feet tall in the front yard.. I can put lights on it. Joshua would like that.. I will hint to him to ask Poppa about getting him some lights for OUR tree.. That way poppa will have to do the light display and exterior lumination. Sounds like a plan.... That can be our this coming weekend project... Besides all the other stuff not finished around here. LOL Ya'll have a good nite !!!

Have done some stitching at night... There is this 16 year old afghan ... This is a long story... LOL. My mom's best friend wanted me to stitch this afghan for her first grand daughter. She gave it to me before she was to be born. At the time, I worked retail.. Well... It did not get finished before GD was born. I have had it for over 16 years now. I do work on it from time to time. I am almost 2/3's finished. It has became somewhat of a sad question... Mom's BF always comments that: will this thing get finished before it becomes a Family Heirloom? I have said between this move and Christmas I am trying very hard to get it finished. That is all I can say and Do... Please send prayer for me to stitch this thing with lightening fingers. Also... Not to have a nervous breakdown in the process... Oh... We also bought a new front door, that will need to be installed.... I am rambling on....
DH has me going to pick up a TV swivel mount for the flat screen today. I am attending a funeral today too. Chip's ( SIL) grandfather passed away this past Friday. His body is flying in on Delta for funeral today. Please pray for family...
Well, I need to go get ready... Till later... if sane... LOL

We scrubbed from front to back. She did our bath and bedroom. She shut the door when she finished those rooms and said " Do not mess it up". We don't even have the furniture moved yet... I will take pictures when I have it staged for picture taking..
While this was going on... DD, Raeanne was in my other kitchen.. Packing me up to move. At least she checked all my spices for expiration dates... LOL I now have about a dozen boxes to move tomorrow. That is just 1/2 of my kitchen stuff.. I think I better go through all those boxes and get rid of some things.. Anyone need any kitchen stuff ? See ya !!!

DH and I awoke this morning and headed of to the work site.. lol I cleaned some and moved stuff out of the front bedroom. I laid tack strips down and put tile in closet. Then DH came in a helped with putting the padding down and we cut carpet to fit. Oh... I did something stupid. I fell in the vent of the central air. lol. We had the padding down and I knew where the vent was.. I thought... Well... I stepped right into it with my size 8's. Scrapped my leg and put a big bruise on the side of my leg. DH said not to help him anymore. He said, I was making more work for him. LOL He had to go back under the floor and put the duct work back up to the floor. Well at least, we have the carpet in the floor, waiting to be stretched. That is a job for tomorrow.
Cross Stitch news..... I have been working on Joshua's Birth Sampler... He is what? 2 years old. It is the chart from Blackbird Designs, Sailing Home.. Cute and in muted colors of blue, beige, & brown. When I finish it, I will start on Zoe's Sampler. It is also by Blackbird Design, the match to the boy's sampler.
I am dead dog tired. have a great nite.

This chart is from Carriage House Samplings. Called The Curse Of The Raven. I have order all threads and cannot find the 40 Count Camofudge linen anywhere... If anyone can help me locate? I tried my On-line shop and she said , can order ( from Austr.) but does not know how long it will take to get to her. Please let me know if you have a America source. Thanks.
This chart is from The Goode Huswife. Called Raven's Roost. See what I mean about all these tombstone charts. I will have to stitch them all.
There is not that much Christmas Charts out there. I did order 2 older ones.
Only 2 Christmas Charts. I had been looking for the M Design - Christmas Catastrophe for a while now. I also am looking the the Halloween one too. I will make pillows out of this one. The other chart is a Carriage House Samplings - 1999 Christmas Sampler.
I also purchased the Book ( pages with punched holes for you to put in a notebook) The Flat-Fold and Friends Pages. Gives directions for : Stand-ups, Boxes, Heavy Weights, Ornaments, and flat-folds. I already have it in a Binder. Maybe I can find time to finish all these projects.
Have a great November 1st!!!

More of Bath
I tried to get a picture of the fake fireplace. Jerry made that. He was so talented. I think I will put a small tray or sugar mold with candles in the inside. Don't laugh at the pinkish-purple shelf.. It does hold all our caulk,light bulbs,hammers,nail guns, and electrical & plumbing supplies. The thingie.. ? the bucket is sitting on was my birthday present 2 years ago. I finally got to use it !!!
I don't call it a dinning Room. No enough room.. lol I am standing out through door in glassed room. Hard to get any clear pic of this room. to small. Behind those white doors will be the washer & dryer. OH Great!!! We can get out unmentionables right off of the eating table... Everyone knows I hate to do laundry. We dig out of the dryer and baskets as it is now.. lol
This is the kitchen, still a work in progress. New blacksplash, new stovetop, new countertops, NO New Dishwasher... urghhh. or Refrig .. urghh
I will use what I have. Money has ran out. Good thing we had purchased carpet and outside siding. I have a sprayer on the sink !!! Oh Goodie !!! Never had one.
Just 3 rooms left.......... Come on.................
This is the Livingroom. If your can't tell that it is.. I wonder why??? Let see.. 1 door, I have no idea where it goes. we have to many door for the door jams....lol You know how it is when you have parts left over after putting something together??? That is this project. Rolls of carpet and pads to put it all down with.... Lets see... Stained boards that I need to cut and install around the window. I don't need DT for that.. Can handle it myself. I am a pro at window trim... Let's see which angle do I need to cut that end 45 or 90??? lolI call this MY Bath... This is the one I am sure to be banished to... Dewayne has already took over the closet. I get this..... I feel like AL Bundy on Married with Children !!! lol I did paint it a William Baby Blue color. Tub is not Yellow... Picture is crappy... It is a dark taupe.. Color of the sink counter.
MY Computer & Craft Room !!! TA DA. I know it is a mess. I'm sure it will be this way when it is finished. That stuff is all MY TOOLS... Dewayne keeps going in here and getting my stuff. I even have a carpenter's belt I wear. I always wanting to wear daddy's, I have it. But He was a size 30 waist... and daughter here... it will not fit... urhhh. So DT bought me a new one of my very own.. It does come in handy. Where is my hammer??? OH, it is here hanging in the hoop on the side of my belt... Yeah!!! Lesson 101 in carpenter belts. You still caught yourself looking around for your tools. That great mirror, I am going to redo to go in MY Bath. maybe run some stain over it's whitewash. Well I need to get back to stitching .
