Stitch from Stash September and Disney

This is my Stitch from Stash September report along with a little Disney mixed into the post. I am still trudging along on my Augusta design.  Do you realize I started this in bored and stopped working on it???   I decided it was time to finish plus, I got tired of  DH asking about his golf piece!  I have 1 whole page and 4 half pages left.....So happy to have this finished!!

Sistine Chapel Decision --- I heard from the designer who told me to work other sections of the design and make my mistake fit.... that makes me nervous....but I am going to work a few more scenes to see what happens.   

I have been learning about Essential Oils.  I went to a class in late August and became hooked!!!  I ordered the whole kit just to get the discount but now I find that I am actually a consultant with this company along with being a Thirty-One Consultant...not sure how that is going to work??  However...I LOVE my oils.   I have been using the one for pain on my dog because of his sore hip...and he is doing better!!!  This thrills me!!!  I use my Peace and Calming in my classroom...things are great!!!  Do any of you use essential oils?? Do you have a favorite?

It seems we are in for another snowy winter...all the persimmon seeds have small spoons in them which means a wet snowy winter.    In case you are scratching your head this is what I am talking about.  See those spoons in the seeds????   That means snow..lots of snow!!! UGH!!!!

So,  I was in Sams the other day (Sams is like a Costco) and saw Mickey Footed Jammies!!!  I just ha to have them!!!  They will keep me nice and snug this winter!!!!  I bought the red ones...the solid black Minnie's would show all my doggie fur!!


Yesterday,  We drove to the Tulsa State Fair to see Disney on Ice - Let's Celebrate!   Loved it!!!  Here are just a few pictures of the show. Ice skaters just amaze me!!!

Sistine Chapel Uh-Oh

Before I get into my UH-Oh...let's start out with great news...I got my biopsy results back and I do not have skin cancer on my nose!  I was pretty certain that it wasn't nothing but it is better to be safe than sorry.   When I went back to school on Monday it was a great teaching moment.  My kids pointed out that I had a red scab on my nose so I had to tell them what happened.

I got some stitching mail this week!!!!   I had run out of certain DMC colors to finish my husbands Augusta 13th hole golf project.  So I ordered them from 123stitch.  I spent $7.50 (rounding up) on DMC now I can finish his present!!   

Need Advice please!!! Please send me your suggestions!!!!

 Below is my Sistine chapel.  I checked and double check the stitching when I started the new scene.  I finished one page and then moved to the second page...The first page was the border and brown left triangle portion...the next page was the colors, rest of the triangle and the devil.  however....I am off by 2 rows!!!  I have no idea how this happened!  I have emailed the designer for help because the book said that the devil sections may not line up correctly.  So would you move to a different scene and then work your way back down to see if you could find your mistake or rip out two pages and start again???? 

This is  a better close up..see were the purple lines start on the top right???  they should be 2 rows up!  UGH!!!!

Sistine Chapel -Jonah Scene

I had to take a sick day today because I had to have a small cyst removed from my nose.  The last thing I needed to do was to go to work with a band-aid on my nose.  My High School kids would have a field day with that!!!!  So I took a sick day...which I am glad I did.  I did not realize how much pain I would be in after the numbing medicine wore off!!!  I should have the results from the biopsy in a couple of weeks.  The doctor doesn't think it is skin cancer but they are checking just to be on the safe side!!

I spent the afternoon napping and got some stitching done as well.   I finished another scene on my Sistine chapel.  Below you will see the Three completed scenes and then the one I finished tonight.  I have 42 scenes to go and only  322 pages left!!!    My next scene is 12 pages long....sigh.....

So excited that the new fall Thirty-One catalog has come out.  Check out all the bags I won for my fall home shows!!!  I worked my behind off but I won over 22 bags!!!  LOVE them all!!!  I have provided a link so you can see the new catalog.  We have a new feature on website that lets you see what your personalization will look like before you order!!!!

School is going well just a little busy.   I am on the evaluation schedule that the principal has to observe me several times so I have seen him more this year than in the past years combined.   All is well though.....I have decided there is no need to stress over his visits...all will be fine!

Not sure if  have told you guys what Bert my cat has been up too....but he has managed to catch and bring into my house 3 LIVE bats!!!!!  I have let my Dear Husband deal with those critters. I haven't figured out how or where he is catching them especially since the cat is declawed!!!!!!!

August Stitch from Stash

WOW!!!  It has been over a month since I updated my blog.   School has started back and I have just lost all track of time.   Below is my Augusta Design.  I have finished another page.  I only have 6 more to go!!!!  I cannot wait to be finished with this design.  I spent $0.00 this month!!!!!

In July, I went on a cross stitch retreat.   I mentioned this in my last post.  I was able to get several Mill Hill kits to go in my collections.  The store didn't have the last 3 kits I needed to complete my collection so I placed them on order.  I am still waiting....sigh...but I do love the ones I purchased!!!!
