Round 16 and Elf Fairy


Alrighty so Susan P. received my round 16 about a week ago I guess and I just saw on the Fair and Square blog that she received it. I hope you like it. It was fun to stitch rudolph up.

Also here is my elf fairy as of today. I just have that little square to fill in and then its time for backstitching and beading! I can't wait for this happy dance, she has certainly taken me longer to complete than the other two fairies did but she's still fun to do.

My Edelweiss lodge and resort marriage retreat got canceled sadly but is rescheduled for the 11th of Dec. so I am hoping we can make it as our things will be shipped already, luggage packed, and the house ready for inspection so cross your fingers everyone that this one doesn't get canceled either.

We also took Christmas pictures this past Saturday. They were suppose to be in Dec 14th but was moved to Dec 18th which means we can pick them up in Veisbaden a 20 minute drive from the Frankfort airport on the 17th or they can mail them to my mom's address where we will be staying for the next 6 weeks and we receive them after Christmas sometime. This one is going to be played by ear though. We already viewed the pictures and picked what we wanted and paid.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving weekend? We spent ours relaxing and weeding through more things here inside the apartment and down in the storage in the basement. Fun stuff lol.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am so thankful that I have DH and the girls together this year. I am also thankful that we get to go home for Christmas for the first time in 4 years. There are many other things to be thankful for this year but these are just a few of mine. What are you thankful for this year?

TUSAL and a Christmas Elf fairy


Okay I know I am very late showing my TUSAL but both kids were ill all the way thru Sunday and even Kiley wasn't feeling well so she stayed home today too but both kids are so much better and will finish off the remaining two days of school this week. Anyway what did I add to this container this month? Different colors from my FS exchange which I can't show yet but I also added more fibers from my Christmas elf as well. I am actually working on her wings as we speak or type? Anyway I am hating working on her wings and was highly tempted to leave them out. But alas she shall have them so she may continue to match my other fairies. And I normally don't mind beading but this one seems to have a ton of them oh well one bead at a time right? Besides the finish product will be beautiful!

DH signed the 4 of us up for a marriage retreat at Edelweiss Lodge. It's a free trip and we always wanted to go there so now is our last chance. We have to go to a few group meetings with our Chaplin but I am actually looking forward to what he has to say. They have free child care as well during these meetings and all kinds of things to do when we are not meeting with the Chaplin. We leave this Sunday and return Tuesday December 1st. 1st SGT is approving the leave of the soldiers to miss work Monday and Tuesday but the kids don't have those days off from school so I will have to let the school know they will be missing more school. And then on the 2nd and 3rd housing comes and collects all our things to ship to Colorado. woohoo! But this means I must have everything we are taking on the plane packed up this Saturday as I don't think I will have the energy when we return. How was everyone else's weekend?

Hmm wonder what my days have been filled with? Let's see I ran around doing last minute things and contacting people about this weekends double birthday party for the kids, Go Wednesday grab the kids, mention to the school nurse that destiny seems lethargic as she laid down on the nurses bed while we chatted. So she has no temp and claims she is fine so off we go home. She fell asleep on the love seat for several hours before getting up to nibble on some dinner. I looked at Mike concerned but again no fever or complaints though she has come home from school all worn out since she began pre school. Sure enough Thursday morning she is in a ball complaining of stomach pain and she has a 101 degree fever so we had a Dr appt anyway with her German Dr and after dosing her with pepto for her tummy and Tylenol for her fever she fell asleep. We had our Dr appt at 1130 and asked him to look at her in which he stated she has a virus which will work itself out. Mike (DH) on the other hand decided she needs medicine for this virus! I just gave him my if looks could kill look as the Dr explained to him yet again how virus do not need antibiotics and will work itself out, if she vomits or her fever spikes to 103 then bring her back in or to the klinikum. We say or P's and Q's and left out the door, came home fed and medicated her as her first dose had worn off by 1300 (1pm) she rested and I spent the day telling Kiley to leave her sister alone, she is sick, stop pestering her, no don't poke her either! Yes thank you Mike for the wonderful suggestion of lets keep both kids home! So today both kids continue with the fevers and to add to it Kiley had a new cereal last night and woke with a red rash from head to toe, her face was puffy and looked like a tomato! I had no benadryl left in our cabinet and was severely low on Tylenol and no ibuprofen so i sent Mike to the clinic for all 3! Poor thing stayed rashy all day today till he arrived home tonight and after a nap she is looking so much better! Though the party has been canceled so my entire day was spent on the phone relating the news to all our parents guests. Mike told the girls he would still get them their cake though. Of course we have to, its special ordered with Disney princesses and Tinkerbell and half pink and half green and reads Happy Birthday Kiley and Destiny! LOL I'll show you guys, this was a huge argument on the kids part but the bakery lady was laughing with us about it. Awww good times.

Well  my stitching mojo has been missing too so if anyone has seen it please send it back to me. Its been missing all week and I can't find it anywhere. It must have runaway with my sanity too.

Happy Birthday Destiny!!


8 years ago today I gave birth to a blue eyed baby girl and even though she is know officially 8 years old she is still my baby girl. Happy Birthday my love!

We bought her this cheerleading 2 game for the Wii for her birthday so she is happily playing on the Wii right now. I'm sorry I have no stitching to show you either as I am working on my exchange piece which I hope to be completed by Sunday night. Today I also bought some clear storage containers like my TUSAl one and put my buttons into one and my pony beads into the other. I have to separate my seed beads because a certain 4 year old thought it would be fun to mix them all up including the ones for MLOTS which I am so itching to bead on tonight but alas it must wait. I have to decide on what I am taking to my moms in Wyoming and just have for 3 months while the rest of my things arrive. Hmmmm, you think DH would think I am on crack if I tell him I want to put all my stitchy stuff into a trunk and mail it to my moms so I won't have to be without my stash for 3 months? Though there is a hobby lobby up the street from my moms........

Fall FS Round and Christmas Elf


Jeanie C. (no blog) received the Fair and Square Fall Round I sent her. I'm so glad you like it, It was fun to stitch up for you.

Also here is my progress on my Christmas Elf Fairy. I just have her hat, wings and beading to do to complete her plus a small amount of back stitching. But for now she will be set aside as I have my final round for the fair and square exchange for the year to do up and get mailed out so i can concentrate on getting things in my house packed up. I leave in just 4.5 weeks!

My Very first Mailart!


I heard from Dawn today that she has received my mail art exchange so I can finally show it. So here are pics of the front, back and even the fabric for the inside. It was a teddy bear theme. I also included the remaining fabric in her envelope and a Halloween pencil too. I wanted to include some other teddy themed items but couldn't get a hold of any over here. I'm so glad you like it Dawn. It was fun to make too so I may enter into more MA exchanges when I get settled in Colorado.

EDITED: OK address thing fixed. Sorry had a mommy brain moment and completely spaced about the addresses.  Thanks everyone for the reminder. :)

Some stitching and some crocheting plus Halloween


Here are our costumes for Halloween night. It was so much fun going out but oh so cold so DH and I were nearly frozen when we came home. I wore 6 inch heels that blinked pink and got lots of compliments though i was in so much pain halfway home that my legs gave out and I fell down. Luckily i didn't get seriously injured though i walked home the rest of the way barefoot and the cold felt soo good on my aching feet. We forgot to carve our pumpkin too, any ideas what to do with it now?
Here are the oh so cute buttons I bought from Anita. I love getting stash from her, she has such awesome service and what great prices! She had to mail this to me 3 times! She said the post office kept returning it to her and eventually had her fill out a different customs form and she had to use a different post office but I do appreciate her service! Thank you Anita!
Here is the very soft sweater I am crocheting for Destiny. I'm proud to say its my own pattern! And its nearly finished though Destiny asked for me to add a turtle neck to it to help keep her neck warm.
My Fairy Elf as of last night. She is going rather quickly and I am so excited! I am hoping to have her completed in the next few weeks.
I got my JCS ornament issue in today! My sister Lynnette got hers in yesterday and I was sad that it was taking so long for mine. Now I can't wait to finish up a few things so I can stitch a few ornies from this issue.
And last but not least I have received my Fair and Square Halloween round from Sharon V. Cute huh? Thank you Sharon!
