Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! I've been trying to get some stitching done since I'm on break from school!

Wednesday, December 14, 2011


So I'm signing up for Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge!
And the Crazy Quilt Journal Project!

I would love to learn new stitches, and I've always wanted to learn how to quilt, and what better way than improvising/googling lol

You can see the slideshow of my progress on dragon riders on a day to day basis here. I know how OCD this is, but I take a picture every day to mark my progress lol

Updates WIP

So this is a UFO I started years ago, it's a Gold Collection Petite called Geisha Beauty. I lost the threads somewhere, so I've been working with what I have in my stash lol

That's what it is supposed to end up looking like...

Also I've been working on a bookmark for my mom for Christmas. It's from Sandy Orton's book "Hold that thought Bookmarks" and the pattern is called Ribbons and Lace. I'm not around a craft store so I'm also winging it with the colors and picking what I think looks best haha

 I've added this HAED QS Wind Moon to my rotation, as Dragon Riders is sooooo red-heavy.

This is what I have so far!

I did this in my art class today :)

Yeah, so a suicide bomber attacked my husband’s COP (command outpost in afghanistan) today :( with 2000 lbs of explosives and blew up 4 barracks and their chow hall…It freaks me out so bad. No one got killed, but 22 people were injured. If anyone had been in the barracks they wouldn’t have made it…
I’m just ready for him to be home :’(

Page 1 is finished!

I finished the first page!!!!
It took from June 17th to July 9th to do :) I wish I didn't have to spend so much time on classes, or I would get it done much quicker.

Just Tired

I’m tired of women trying to start drama with me. I don’t say anything bad to anyone, and for some reason it still surrounds me sometimes. This is why I don’t get close to many girls…This one girl I thought was my friend posted on one of my husband’s fb statuses that he was unstable and mean, and he was just trying to be sweet to me! It was completely out of no where…And then I found out that she spread a rumor back in January that my husband was gay. WTF. I’ve been with him for FIVE years. I would hope I would have noticed something by now…I just don’t understand.
So now I’ve been worrying about all this, meanwhile I have a midterm in the morning at 1030-1, and have to go to the post office and back before then. Then I have work from 1-5, then class again from 6-8. I just feel like crying…I have so much going on I don’t understand how people have room in their life to start shit with me…
Oh well, I can only feel sorry for her, because her husband is home for R&R but she still can’t get me out of her head.

I got a lot more today than it looks lol

It doesn't look like much, but it took hours just to do this much more from the picture from yesterday...

Getting there...

So it's some progress at least lol

Friday, June 24, 2011


So I've made some progress on this...almost done with one color of the first page! Haha, doesn't sound like much, but that's a lot of stitching!!

This is all the colors of thread that are in this HAED! It's probably going to call for a few of the same color, too, depending on how much it's used. I'm both excited and a little intimidated. haha

Army cross stitch ♥

Still wrinkly, but it turned out to look pretty good I think :)

Wednesday, May 11, 2011


Sooo I've been thinking lately that I might want to join the army. I'm a junior in college now, and I think going in as an officer would be really nice. My husband still has 4.5 years in his contract, and we could be together more maybe...I'm so tired of just being a wife. I want to do something for me and make a difference. Idk. I just want to gain confidence and more of a sense of self. Since this deployment started I just feel lost most of the time. My husband is all for it and thinks it would be a great idea, and was the first one to suggest it, actually. It would also help me get in better shape, since I don't really exercise now lol

My husband ♥

So I just wanted to post some pictures of my husband that he's had taken of him since he's been deployed.

He's the one on the left...that one doesn't really look like him haha but I think he was just irritated...

And here's his unit crest! Yay tenth mountain ♥

I'm so happy this is halfway over. I am just counting down the days until I get to see him again.

Finished "Live, Love, Laugh"

Yay, so I finally finished and washed the pic it is still drying, but I really like how it turned out :) It's just something cute I can hang in my kitchen once I have one again. All I need now is the hubby and a house hahaha

Progress and gifts

Soooo my friend gave me all her old cross stitching stuff! Jackpot! I'm pretty excited. I've been patiently waiting on my fabric to start my HAED, but it seems as if the postal service hates me so oh well. I have been working on my Live Laugh Love one, and am almost done with it! yay! :D
Also, my husband got an afghani cell phone, so I can text him now! It's been six months since I got to text him, so I'm like a little kid in a candy store right now haha
I will post a pic later today when I finish it

Live, Love, Laugh

I got it wet so the blue ran a little, but it will come out when I wash it when it's done...just something to do until I can work on my HAED again!

Army Seal and other things

I finally got the fabric I ordered, and it's the wrong size! Now I have to wait for more to come in the I'm working on my army seal that I started and put down in January...It's coming along slowly but surely!

Bad start

So I overslept today and missed my final oral exam for spanish. I tried to explain to her that I had an eight page paper due today and that I had to stay up to finish it, and that I should be able to take it at another time, but she didn't want to hear it. She's so cold and unhelpful. It's not like I intentionally was late. Ugh. But it's georgetown day today!! Which means everyone drunk on the front lawn. I'm trying to get over being so upset so I can enjoy the last day of classes.
