New Stash and an Update

Above is an update on the PM Princess. I've really enjoyed stitching her and haven't gotten back to the Autumn Sampler. I guess my cross stitch genie was happy just to get it started! lol I hope to finish the PM Princess in the next few days. Next I have to do 2 more of the guardian angel I did before and she takes quite a while to stitch; so I doubt if I will get back to AS any time soon. I'm one of those stitchers who usually stitches one thing at a time. Although I have several UFOs. lol The next 3 pictures are my most recent stash acquirements.

I got the book above with a 40% off coupon at Michael's. I love these "Wannabe Bears." My kitchen is decorated in red, white, and black. I collect cows - hence the black and white and I just love red! I'm going to stitch these on some towels I have.

I got the one above with a 40% off coupon at A.C. Moore. I got several of these striped towels on sale a while back, but haven't come up with anything to stitch on them. I love these patterns. I'm stitching towels for my (estranged) mother-in-law and sister-in-law for Christmas. Even though my husband and I have been legally separated for 16 years, the 3 of us still give each other a little something at Christmas! They really loved me!! lol And I really loved them! You don't stop being friends just because you're not in the family anymore!

And the book above was on a 50% off table at A.C. Moore. I can't buy anything if I don't have a coupon, or it's not on sale! lol Anyway, I love alphabets. I especially like stitching things for DD that have her name or initial on them!

Things have gotten better here and at my mom's house. I think I failed to tell my internet friends that DD's friend, who was staying here, went home. DD had a talk with her and told her I was in too bad a shape to have extra company and that we just don't have the room! And Mom and my brother are getting along better since he started working and isn't there ALL DAY LONG!! They're looking for an apartment for him. So peace reigns again! (at least for a while! lol)

DD still likes her job and finally got her application in at Tech. She's all set to start college courses in a couple of months! Yah! Yah!

I am still on the diet and continue to shrink! I try 1 or 2 new recipes every week and so far we have liked all of them. DD especially liked the French Onion Soup we made yesterday. She LOVES Fr. Onion Soup!! She made some more this morning at 1:oo!! And of course I had a mess to clean up this morning! lol

Well, better finish cleaning up that mess and get to stitching! I'm going to visit my mom this afternoon. Have a happy day and may God bless you!

You have made a lot of progress on the Princess! And, I love your new stash!! My Autumn Sampler has not been worked on in a while because of quilt squares, but if I'm honest with myself--the quilt squares are what I enjoy stitching the most.
