Quaker Christmas Ornament
Stitched one 32ct Cranberry Linen Stitched with DMC B5200
I stitched up this fantastic freebie I had a wee start on it before I got up from my nap after work on Friday but I worked on it that night, quite a bit on Saturday and wrapped it up today. I really enjoyed this stitch, and of course if you don't know me by now, I love to switch up the colours! This was charted up for red floss on white fabric I of course did the opposite! Unfortunately this isn't the best picture, I didn't realize the whites had blown out until I got it on the computer and honestly I'm too busy watching the Survivor Finale to get up and re-take a picture! I'll have a better picture when I do the finishing of this pretty.
I also pulled Enchantment of Winter back out. For some reason lately I've been avoiding working on this piece, despite the fact that it needs to get finished! I think I just don't want to face all that over one backstitching, which I was very good to do today until it drove me buggy! When I switched back to stitching over two without my magnifier my eyes were immediately much happier! Of course this picture just doesn't show what progress I've made.

Well there's still no new treadmill though we ordered a new one on December 3rd. This order kinda turned into a comedy of errors. Actually its not a comedy of errors, but just a bad case of STUPID PEOPLE! They were told to send one back they had two arrive. One had been ordered as a gift and ours. They had been told by the warehouse to return a treadmill, but they didn't think to find out which one. Since gifts NEVER have to go back they sent ours back before it barely arrived... never thinking to maybe CALL us to confirm we wanted it returned, since they had all our information to do that so we could come pick it up. The long and the short of it is, our treadmill has been re-ordered, its now on sale so we got a further discount, and its being delivered to the house for free. I hate STUPID PEOPLE!!!! You can ask Chrsitin I go on about stupid people a lot, a pet peeve of mine. I've not run in almost a month because its winter-like out there, and because of STUPID PEOPLE!
A wee self portrait, see that on the ground? Yup evil, white stuff!
So my regular readers know the treadmill is on order because mine broke at the tail end of November, well Murphy paid us another visit. A week away from Christmas to the day, our washing machine died today! The motor was smoking and all that. We have another big purchase coming this week, of all weeks.
