TUSAL, More New Stash, TUIAJ and an Award

Okay this is the 3rd time today I have tried to do this post. Hopefully I will get it right this time. I am trying to do my post for the neat award I received this week from my friend Vickie at http://reading--stitching.blogspot.com/. She awarded me the

Liebster is a German word, meaning favorite, dearest or beloved, and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you. 
I spent all week coming up with my list of bloggers to give the award to & it was not easy.
#1 is my friend & stitching sister Theresa at http://octoberlace.blogspot.com/. She is the most fearless stitcher I know.
# 2 is my friend & stitching sister Mary at http://mivancicts.blogspot.com/. She is the strongest woman I know and a great inspiration.
#3 is my friend Judith at http://judiromi.blogspot.com/. She is the one I blame for my obsession with HAED. I watched her stitching Little Red Riding Hood & the rest is history as they say.
#4 is my friend Annette at http://seaqsiderstitcher.blogspot.com/ who stitches the most awesome projects.
#5 is my friend Val at http://talesfromastitchingwitch.blogspot.com/ who not only stitches beautifully but also makes awesome jewelry.
Now for 5 things about me.
1. I have been married to the same man for 37 years & haven't killed him yet.
2. I am a senior customer service rep & account manager for a global chemical company.
3. I was born & raised in Montana
4. I love all kinds of tea
5. My oldest daughter Shannon was handicapped & passed away when she was 16.
Whew. Got this far this time.
I know I'm late for TUSAL but as I only update on Sunday so be it. As you can see I am back to singing the blues (see a previous post) but this time it is not bothering me as much.
I made great progress on TUIAJ this past week 1330 stitches. Only one more week on it as next Sunday I will be starting Village Bookstore by Randal Spangler as a SAL on one of my groups in support of HAED. I will probably do a week on VB and the either switch back to TUIAJ or pull out another one of my sadly neglected rotation. They are starting to whisper so maybe I will give them all a turn before they start really yelling.
It is cold 45F & rainy here in MA today. Last week we were in the high 80's. Can we say everyone will be sick this week?
Last but now least is new stash. I got the last HAED that I ordered during the 50% off sale & then I picked up 3 charts at my Friday stitch group.
Well I've made it this far so I better not push my luck. Here are all the pics.

It's Hermitting Weekend IHSW

Good morning everyone,

My stitching during the week was limited as I was so tired from work I kept falling asleep so only got in a few stitches each evening. I made up for it yesterday. I hermitted & got in 624 stitches on TUIAJ. Whew. I hope to do the same today.
Weather here has been cold & rainy but today is supposed to be beautiful. Already sunny & 41F.
I also got the six HAED charts that I ordered during the 50% off sale. I have one more coming. It should be here tomorrow.
Okay enough blabbering. Here is the good part. Progress picture of TUIAJ, pictures of new stash & a picture that proves my DH also stitches.(he didn't know I was taking them).
I also included a pic of the cover page for TUIAJ so you can see what it is supposed to look like when done.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccccccccccccck

Guess what guys & dolls it is Sunday again. This week I have progress on my HAED The Universe is a Jar by Randal Spangler.
I think I also mentioned previously that I am slowly moving the stash from one room to another & have been unearthing treasures as I go. This week I found a couple of pieces that I finished several years ago & one that is in progress & really doesn't have much to go. The finished pieces are a Ginger Spice piece that I cannot for the life of me remember the name of & I am too lazy to look it up & a piece from Told in A Garden.
Why is it when you get older the first thing to leave is your mind?
I also have a picture of the latest Lego that is keeping DH occupied. All most forgot that I had a picture of Daddy's little helper also.
Well enough rambling for now. I need to get ready to go to a Lacemakers Guild get together at my LNS.As if I don't have enough to do now huh?

Pictures Pictures Pictures.

Not a whole lot to write about this week. Weatherwise we actually had some snow this week. It snowed Wednesday afternoon,all night Wednesday & all day on Thursday. Then on Friday it didn't do much of anything. Saturday it rained all day so now the snow is mostly gone. That's okay by me. If it never snows again I will not be sad. I HATE snow.(I should say driving in snow).
Lots of pictures this week. My progress on The Universe in a Jar,pictures of the finished Death Star & some pics of DH's finished stitching. I have been moving my stash from one room to another (slowly) & have been unearthing lots of "Oh my I forgot all about this" treasures.
