Sorry my TUSAL picture is blurry not sure why it came out that way. Anyway the only fibers in here are from MLOTS and a pink yarn that was too small for anything. I'll try and be on time with this from here on out.

On MLOTS I completed her hair and face and did all the outlining on her upper body plus the one hand that's completed. I used half stitches in white to determine where to start her other hand at. Those half stitches will be removed soon. I still have lots of beading to do to fill in the gaps but that has to wait for now. In the meantime I am working on her hand, the owl and the long ribbon coming down from her hand and owl.

Sorry I haven't visited anyone's blogs lately. As you all know I just moved to a new place and wow unpacking is taking its time as I am having to open each box before I can figure where and how it goes. I'm trying to work on my craft room (yay! I finally have one!) But I am finding its time to go shopping for ideas on how to put this together.

The movers came and we got all our things and they even helped us unpack some of it the next day after they got the furniture put together. I have a lot of work to do in my craft room as it is filled with boxes that need unpacking and moving to the right rooms as none of the boxes were labeled when the Germans packed us up. We were openeing up boxes as they came in to try and get them to the correct rooms. I did work on MLOTS a ;little bit so I'll post a photo soon and I know my TUSAL is way overdue. When we were in the hotel the miads kept throwing away my ort cup so it is only filled with the end of February till now.

Out of hotels at last!

Today we close on our first home! Finally out of the small hotels. What does this picture have to do with it you ask? Well nothing really but its pretty.  Saturday our new washer/dryer and refrigerator arrive and on Monday our housing goods will be delivered! Also we get our cable and internet hooked up on Saturday as well. Thankfully all the utilities are on so we just have to call the utility company and have them switch over the name on the account for us. Anyway I'll try and post this weekend but don't be surprised if I am AWOL for about a week or so because I will be unpacking and organizing things.

Oh! Destiny will get to ride the bus to and from school too because we live so far out so this weekend I will be looking for where the bus stop is LOL. 

Have a great weekend!

Can we say migraine?

Yep been battling major migraines. My house closing was pushed till the 19th because of stupid bullshit. Then both of our vehicles break down. One needs a new engine that's going to cost $5,200 USD and the other one we brought from Germany smokes, hmmm lord knows what that is and we have NO money to get either vehicle fixed atm. We had to pay off a lot of things that popped up on DH's credit and so it sucked up our savings but we will get through this.

I haven't picked up any of my stitching since its hard to look at it with a migraine but you all know that. I did buy the missing color i needed so I can fill in my stitching spots on her hair when I finally do get to sit down and stitch. I looked in hobby lobby and Michael's for the seed beads I needed while I was visiting family for my nephew's 7th birthday.

Happy things are suppose to be happening this week so I'll try and post sooner and more often after that.

Happy Stitching everyone!

MLOTS and 2 cars

This is what she looked like about a week ago. But I haven't felt like blogging or stitching much since. I stitched her skin colors and am hating the way her face looks, I know it will look better as I complete it and can get the back stitching in.  I finally sat down and order the beads I need for her and my missing color and had them sent to my moms so hopefully they will be in by the time we go there valentines weekend.


DH flew to Los Angelas California on Friday morning so he could pick up our car at the port. It's a 21 1/2 hour drive from there to here. So he was going to do it in 2 days but we had car issues the entire time. The battery died on the trip here though it was a brand new battery! One of our belts was missing plus now the alternator is going out. I'm so irritated because I know the car was fine when we dropped it off in Germany but ok fine we will fix everything.

The day before he flew out we picked up the 1998 pontiac firebird from my mom. She sold it to us as she needs to buy a 4 x 4 vehicle because of all the snow there. The firebird is very low to the ground and so more than a few inches on the roads and well your snowed in. It was my dad's midlife crisis and he bought it in 1998 and they no longer make these cars plus its in near mint condition. I hadn't been in this car since before my dad had passed so it was strange and a bit depressing being in this car for our 3 hour drive home that night. It still feels weird being in that car without him. DH fell in love the first day he saw it so when my mom was forced to sell it I couldn't exactly tell DH no. And I know its just a car but my dad LOVED this car so for it to have been sold to a stranger would have been like losing a huge piece of him.
