Dames Of The Needle - Owl Scissor Case chart. I already had the Owl Scissors. I also won this 18.5 X 17.5 28 ct linen. I don't know what to stitch on it.
One Lizzie Kate and One HIH. I think, I will not make the deadline on stitching the New Years one... I also won 2 pieces of Linen.. 32 Count Orange Sherbert. (more orange than picture) 28 Count Tombstone. I have plans for these.. Orange for Carrots and Black for Halloween stuff.
I tried pricking Rebel's little leg with my pricker and testing her blood sugar. Didn't work.. lol nothing came out to test. Guess we will go to vet. She is doing better today. Raeanne informed me that I needed the vet to test her.. They have to draw the blood.. duh... She is a smarty pants.. She got a kick out that I was trying to use my meter and lancets on Rebel.. I was trying to help... Kids just came in. Till Later.....

Back to the wee wee problem.. I am wondering if she has diabetes? Are the signs for Diabetes in dogs like those in humans? She has not lost weight.. all she does is drink alot and wee wee alot. Or is it maybe just her age? I need to make an appointment with Dr Kelley and get it checked out. She doesn't like vet visits. It takes her days just to rest from her yearly checkup. She has always been healthy.. She was the Runt of her litter and she is the only one left of her family. Her sister Sadie lived with my mom till last year. Sadie had cancer and past away last year.
If you wouldn't mind saying a little prayer for her, I would appreciate it. If anybody has a doggie that may have the same condition, any info is appreciated... Vet appointment next.....

Why does it bother me so bad that people around me are always on their phones talking real loud or else not paying attention and texting? Maybe it is just me. When I am out and get a call, I always tell them let me call you back I am at ( where-ever) or driving to (so-in-so). Maybe I need some help .... It is just I look around and everyone has a phone to their ear, texting away, or have that blue tooth in their ear, which looks like they are crazy and talking to themselves.
I have said that this New Year 2011, I am going to de-stress, try to eat better, and not pay attention to those phone people who annoy me. LOL Can ya'll tell I do not like anything to change.. If it was 1978 all over again. I would be perfectly happy and only 13 .... again. The title of my post - I don't know? I really don't know.... Till Later..

I also added those I finished stitching this year. I have some more to post. Can ya'll believe my camera battery died again.
Do ya'll notice something in this picture? A question game... No, not that the grands have made a mess in the new room.. No, not that the futon was not put together yet.. You give up... There is no Tree Skirt.. Last year Rebel dog grabbed it out from under the tree and made her a bed on it... I could not force myself to take it away from her. When Christmas was over I washed and packed it up. Well... This year I pulled it out. Laid it down and started decorating. Turned around the Tree Skirt was gone.. Rebel had dragged it into the living room and it is now under her desk, where is lays.. The other day I looked around and she had 2 afghans and Josh's sleeping bag piled up under her desk and she had made herself a bed.. I Think she may be part Cat... LOL
Till Tomorrow .....

This is my The Christmas Carol ornaments. Marley's Ghost and Crachet with Tiny Tim, along with the Humbug sign.I wish I could find the others to match. A little view of my Ober Gatlinburg ornament.
I have a collection of ornaments that Mom has gave me. Here is Island Of Misfit Toys - Cowboy on Ostrich, A Boyd's Mouse, and Parsians Shopping Santa. I also collect Ornament from our trips. The gold one is Biltmore Estate Ornament. I also have a lot of Lucy, Gone With The Wind, and other Hallmark Ornaments. This year, GWTW did not make it to the tree. I have so much.. Next year they may get a tree of their own.
The robust Mermaid on the right is one of my favorites. My mom brought this back for me from Natchez Mississippi. Sorry for the blurry picture. Of course, Lucy's chocolate ornament is a windup and the chocolates go flying by on the belt. The face in the upper left corner is my glass Polar Bear ornament. His butt is in the picture above. LOL. He is so unusual. I love anything different, one of a kind, or unusual.
This is my Christmas Story Lamp & Box Ornament. One of my favorites.. Of course, it was gave to me by mom. That wood ornament was cut out and painted by me, years ago. My tree has no theme.. Maybe it does.. 29 years of collecting. I will give a little peek every day till Christmas, if ya'll like.. I was unwrapping ornaments and remembering today , who gave this one to me, where I got that one, and important dates for ornaments... I started telling Josh about them.. He was not very interested.. He had more important things to think about, like... me wrapping HIS gifts, watching cartoons, and eating snacks in the recliner.. I lost my helper... oh well... Maybe when him and Zoe gets older they will want to know about the stories behind the ornaments.
Hope everyone is having a great week ~~

This is the table. That red table runner did have tassels attached to the ends. I noticed the other day one was in the floor... Wonder what happened?? I call it Zoe, happened to it.. She had pulling on it all weekend. So, I just cut the other one off.. Problem solved! lol
He is saying," Gigi... don't take my picture!" I got it anyway!!! The boy, who used to be a camera hog, now runs from picture taking time.. What gives??
I will live you with this picture of" Gleaming Sex in The Window" from The Christmas Story. The Famous Leg Lamp. I also have the ornament.. When that tree gets put up.. I have been looking for Eddie's RV Ornament on Ebay. I think I need to forget about it.. Prices have been near $100.00.. Out of my price range... I wish I had seen it when it came out... Oh well... I can live without it... I think.
I see a lot of my blogger friends are snowed under. Hope you are staying warm, stitching or crafting away!!! It is warm here today in Alabama. Freezing and sleeting yesterday. Warm and humid today! Geez...

Sock Monkey is for Josh. I still have Zoe's to stitch. It is hard work to finish these. I have been at it since 11:00 am and here it is 3: 15. That means I did 5 ornaments in around 4 hours. I did sit and think on how to finish each one, Then I would start sewing it. Then I would grab another one and think on it. Craft room is a mess.. I have not even ate lunch. How did I do that, I never forget to eat!!! lol
I am getting hungry or I wouldn't leave ya'll But.. I need something... Till Later !

I also almost remodeled 2 of my fingers. I had started cutting the trim for around the windows. I used the compound Miter Saw for that... We have to cut little pieces to stick under the trim on the inside on the windows to make them level. I was using the Skill Saw for that. Well... The saw kicked and I went to catch my wood and I sawed my first and second finger. Not to bad... but, it hurts bad. DD took me to the doctor and hubby came to pick me up... On the way home Hubby wanted to stop and eat. We went to Jim N Nick's Bar B Que. They have the best Cheese Biscuits. Hubby grabbed my knife and would not let me butter my biscuit. He said, I didn't need to be around sharp objects. LOL They play music in the place and right after he said that, Johnny Cash started singing " I Hurt Myself Today".. We both started laughing!!! I can laugh about it now.. When it first happened I just knew I had lost both fingers. Working by myself on the room is not best at this time, since I am now injured.... I will clean my house and take pictures of my finished stitching. I might even get my stitched ornaments out and put them on my little tree in my craft room.. If I can get that room cleaned. Till later.....

I have been decorating today. No... This is not my home!! But, it is in Alabama ! LOL Only in Alabama does your Alabama Flag, Reindeer, & Christmas Decorations cost more than your house. LOL I have not put up the tree yet. I just took my time and cleaned the house and put out a little stuff here and there.
Tomorrow is Cancer Doctor Day with mom. Wish us luck !!! Till Later....

I am putting up all my Thanksgiving & Fall decorations today. Raining cats & dogs here... I can put them in a tub and maybe tomorrow get them relocated out to the shed. All my Christmas stuff is out in the shed too. Josh & Zoe have their tree up. It is only decorated from the top to half way down. zoe likes to take the ornaments off... lol
I had a great Thanksgiving. Ate way to much Ham...Hubby boss bought a Honey Baked Ham to get some ham to put in his beans and he gave us the whole ham... He just needed a pinch off. Can you believe it!!! Some we have ate Ham all weekend. Well, I need to go fix me a Ham Sandwich! lol

I have been stitching and watching movies all day. It is raining her in Alabama. I did watch Martha Stewart today. Her show was about Turkeys. What kind to buy. She says she raises Specialty Turkeys.. They cost about 12.00 to 14.00 a Pound. I guess she has higher taste in Turkeys than Me... LOL The Ol Butterball will do for me. She then showed the different Turkeys. Ol Butterball was huge.. He was on Steroids . Then she showed Organic Turkeys and Her Specialty Turkey and they were so much smaller.. She also said they all taste different. hummmm .. I guess Martha knows her turkeys..
I also found out that the Turkey the President Pardons every year has a buddy that, they do eat... They pick 2 Turkeys, fatten them up and then they choose which one lives and which one gets the AXE and becomes Dinner. I couldn't do that!! I would say.. Hey.. Secret Service men, go to the grocery and get us a Butterball and we will pardon both... LOL Then I was wondering, do they do Eny Meany Migthy Mo over their heads.. Or do they see who gets fattened up to make a great dinner. I would want to be the Turkey that is on a DIET.. lol
I am working on my Aunt's Stitched Gift today. I don't have much left to stitch. Right now I am resting my back. I picked up a box of heavy tools off the back steps yesterday and messed up the old back.. I have been putting ice on and off it today. I have to get my spine back right before The Big Feast !!!
Till Tomorrow ......

I went to Hobby Lobby with the grandkids this morning.. They had all their Fall stuff 90% off. I got these 3 items below for $5.20 . Can't bet that price !!! I have now added them to my Autumn Decor. I am slowly gathering items to decorate my home.
I did get the front of my Cricket Collection Halloween Cat put onto a mat board to make a stand-up. I am going slow on it. Hoping not to mess up..
Need to go cook some dinner. Till later.......

To me, Harry is better looking and has the better personality, compared to Prince William. Prince William is looking more like his father and acts like him. I know he can't act normal because is to be King one day.William has Princess Di's Face but Charles's Hair line.. LOL Seems to me Princess Diana became more beautiful the older she got. Is there maybe some secret that makes some prettier after they live with Charles. LOL They seem to be happy here... What Happened? She looks like she is about to kiss him. He has grabbed her arm.
I read that Prince Charles had been having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles since he was in his early 20's. She was married and he had been having the affair for 15 years before he married Diana. Isn't she a beauty?.....
Bad crooked teeth, bushy hair, and lines on her face. A plain looking Jane...She stole Charles's heart... Diana never had a chance... But once Di was out of the way, she moved in for the Kill.... LOL She married Prince Charles and some how she emerged looking like this....
It is amazing what money and royalty can do! Fixed teeth, new hairstylist, and I will not mention the bust area. So... Prince Charles decide to have Camilla over Diana. This picture is a favorite of mine of Princess Di:
Look at the RED toe polish !!! lol
Best picture of mom and her boys! Look at them.. you can tell they love their mom. Williams chin is rested against her shoulder and Harry is leaning on her. I don't think Charles would have married Camilla if Di was still alive, She would still be in the boy's life and he would honor her as their mother.. Just my opinion... What is yours?
I won't write about what I think on her death. I happened to pull up a site to read about her, it popped up the Car Cash with a picture of her still in the car. A Shocker... That didn't even need to be on the net.
