DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG

I can't take a clear picture for the life of me. Guess I will have to be getting the directions out this weekend to find out what to do with this camera because I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Even when I put it on automatic, the picture is still blurry. Well anyway, this is a picutre of my Xmas stocking. Lots of work went into these stockings but they are so worth it.

Not much has been going on here. The weather has been crappy this week and now I have the news on and they are calling for bad weather for the morning commute. Just what I wanted to hear. Yesterday was just awful. It snowed, then sleet, then back to snow. The commute to and from work was dreadful yesterday. Funny story about the snow yesterday. When I came home there were big foot prints in the front yard. No packages but the postman must have walked across the yard. Only the guy does that, no when the girl delivers our mail. Well when DH got home he said "how much fabric did the UPS guy bring you today". I said I didn't get any fabric at all and I hadn't. He said well there is footprints in the front yard and only the UPS guy walks that way. I told him since he is becoming such a detective I better tell the UPS driver to walk down the driveway. I have had a pending order going all week with The Fat Quarter Shop but I haven't been able to finish it yet.

So is everybody almost ready for Xmas. I haven't even started Xmas shopping but I am hoping to make a good dent in it this weekend. The only problem is, you have to wrap all those gifts once you buy them. I am a perfectionist at heart, so all my packages have to be perfect. You must have ribbons and bows on your presents or they aren't finished.

Have been working on the challenge quilt this week. Just a few more days and I will hopefully be able to post a good picture of my progress. In between times, I have been working on my bluework snowman. I am working on one of the bigger portions right now, I think it is 18 x 42. Here is a little peek at the section I have done so far.


Making perioges for dinner tonight. I make DH the ones with cheddar cheese and potatoes and then I make mine with cheddar cheeses and jalapeno. DH always says how can you eat those when you don't even like spicy food. I don't know, they just sure taste good.

Well off to cook,

Hugs, Cindy

Ok, I'm coming to dinner. I want the jalapeno ones too. Love this stocking even though the picture is blurry. The bluework isn't blurry though. We are supposed to get ice late Saturday..so I will be in the same boat you are in. Take care driving to work!

Love your stocking, blurry or not, is it x-stitched? Ah your working on Winter Wonderland. Mine's been put away while other projects take priority. No idea what it is your cooking, but it sounds different....

Lovely Cross-stitch and I can only imagine the hours and hours of work you've put in it. I did one cross-stitch piece and it took me 10 years off and on to complete it. As for your picture taking. Have you got a macro setting? With good lighting and a steady hand you should get a good picture.

Andy's on his way for leftovers...he'll take either one. I have no clue how to make those and he loves them. Your bluework is great...is that Winter Wonderland? Be careful driving! Go Steelers!

Thanks Heather

Beautiful stocking, and I can't wait to see what you have accomplished on the Challenge Quilt. No sewing for me today--we were at the mall Christmas shopping all day!
