Another Start.....Rabbit in the Round

I hope everyone has had a great holiday season. One of my wishes was to have a white christmas. Hey hey I did get that. I am starting to feel human again. That bug sure lasted a long time here. Started around Thanksgiving and did not go away till like last week. Adrian got his Badger Archive Book from Santa. James Bond DVDs and a Miami Vice CD (soon to be coming) for Xmas from mom. I will be seeing Allen next week and then the holiday season will be done. The above stitching is from my last years stash finding mission with Marcy and friends. It is a small project and it will be done soon. It feeds into my bunny-collecting.
Any new year's resolutions? Really working again on schoolwork. I want to get the rest of my classes out of the way. I have Chemisty, Algebra, Statistics, World Religions, and Anaylsis of Lit...soon to testing out on Jan. 13, 09.

Wishing Health and Happiness to all in 09.

Here are my prezzies for days 5 and 6 for the 12 days of Christmas exchange. A Trail Creek Farm pattern -- xmas themed and for day 6 a box of spiced chai tea. Yummy. Thanks Partner.

Weather around here is white again. Not sure how much we got bur had to use the blower after I took Adrian to work. The big snow plow came through as I was plowing so that was good so when I got home I would not have a big "lump" at the bottom of the driveway. I think this virus or whatever I have got is finally going away. I do have a nasty cough but I have energy now. I have to work today and tomorrow and maybe Friday then off for the weekend. We are suppose to get hit again on Thursday night over Friday am with ice. Ewwwww Driving on ice. Never know it might not come. Cannot get too upset. Take everyday on day at a time.
Have a good day.

Christmas is coming. This year I have more "spirit" than I have in a while. Feels good to get excited about a holiday. I think alot of that had to do with my buddy Miles. He is quite the guy. The snow has stopped coming down and now it is sooo pretty around here. I have taken a break from school right now. I am getting over this nasty cold/flu thing that I have had for a while. I want to be done with these general ed courses but they will get done eventually. Work has been less stressful so that has been good. Rest up for the next round of new admissions and a change in the "routine" for the shift.
Have a great day everyone!!

This is the other piece that I just finished. This will be a pillow as soon as I get my machine out. It was done with Weeks Yarn and I believe a 28ct evenweave. Another piece I love.

This is one of my latest finishes. I decided to go to a framing shop and have it professionally finished. I am sure glad I did. I Love it.!!!! It is on my shelf in my bedroom.

Can't forget Spaz. She had put up alot with the new addition. She was used to being the baby and now she is the "Queen". We lost Selena. Both Spaz and I went through a morning period. Ater about 5 mos. she has slowly but surely gotten used to the ball of fur.

More pictures of my lovable Miles.

This is Miles. He is my new Fur Baby. I have had him for about 5months now. I got him from the Humane Society. I got him just under 4lbs. I thought for sure he would be bigger but he's my little man. Very affectionate and purrs all the time. He is much different than my other cats. He is a chewer and plays much more than the other ones. I think he has a bit of Siamese in him. His last visit to the vet and he was about 5.5lbs. I don't think he will get much bigger. He is really a joy to have around. If I don't get up when he wants me to he comes and licks my face. He brings toys to play with and uses his voice many a time to get what he wants. He truly is a great companion.

Latest WIP and School

Hello Everyone,
Here is my latest WIP. It is from JBW Designs. French Country Alphabet. It is done in Periwinkle from Weeks Dye Works. After stitching on my french project that has many color changes, I wanted to do something less changes. I got this at my big shopping day at Welcome Stitchery. That place has EVERYTHING you need to cross stitch. Good thing it is 90 miles from me. LOL I am going to work on my Easter heart and a xmas decoration for the next years exchange while I am waiting for more floss. This was one skein of the Weeks.
Now for school. I got in gear to start working on my nursing school. I have my LPN and I want to get my Bachelors Degree. I am working on an online course. I have to work at my pace. Did not think it would be hard to set my own schedule but omg it is!! I have set up a test date so that will help me to get'er done. The subject I am working on right now is American History II. Starts at the end of the Civil War and ends at present. I did not like history in High School but I am kinda getting into it now. I like working in the nursing home where I am at but I ultimately want to work in a hospital in pediatrics. Hospitals do not hire LPNs. Also the increase in pay would not be too bad either. Better get back to the books.
