I managed to finish one of the larger urn motifs on the "Ann Dickinson - 1819" sampler. I've been suffering from some ADD...
when I'm doing needle punch,
I want to be cross stitching,
and when I'm cross stitching,
I want to be punching...
& then when I'm punching,
I want to be sketching that idea that just popped into my head.
Anyone else suffer this stitching disorder? Maybe all of us who suffer from this disorder need to unite! I think I need a support group...what could we call our group??
Anyhoo, I am to a fun part of the "Ann" sampler...a row of one pretty little flower urn after another. And then its onto the bottom band of the sampler...my favorite part of the piece!

The count down is on! Don't forget American Idol starts tomorrow night! Remember ladies, don't forget to hide the remote tomorrow night from the dh. Maybe your household isn't like ours...BUT the dh seems to think that it is his "manly duty of the house" to be in charge of the remote...at all times! If I don't hide it, he walks into the room, picks it up and changes the channel. And then after I spew out a few choice words, he nonchalantly asks, "Oh, were you watching that?" Ugghhhh.......no, I'm just sitting here, facing the TV, with my eyes fixated on it for shits & giggles...my usual come-back comment. (Please pardon my French). So, I am very much looking forward to stitching and watching Idol once again...a perfect combo! I am sad that Simon won't be there. I was always in a love/hate relationship with that guy, but darnit it just isn't going to be the same without him...

We are in for a string of very cold days here in NW Iowa...hoping you are all staying warm wherever you are at. We had a heat wave yesterday (33 degrees)...am thinking that was probably our January thaw...and only 1 day long!
