My stitched bits

You Are Midnight

You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.

Whether you're a night owl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.

Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.

You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.

So now you know it :-)

So here is the latest piccie of my Queen! I haven't stitched much lately, I've been too busy rearranging wardrobes in my bedroom and I've also been busy in the kitchen, cooking stuff. It takes so much time I just can't get to stitching anymore. I do hope I can continue one of these days as my second page is almost finished!

I hope you like what you see so far!

Just another silly site asking you to draw a pig to find out about your personality. LOL
Enjoy. I'll be back later with the serious stitchings!

Well yes, finally I'm back again and there's a piccie of my WIP. I'm no quitter :-) I just didn't have the time to get to play with my computer much the last 2 weeks. And what's even worse is I didn't have much time to play with my Night Queen either!!! Yesterday evening I just managed to finish another 800 stitches which I had started with when my first page was finished. Just 800. Yuk, that's NOT much!
I intend to be stitching all this weekend! I just need to go to one shop in town in a wee bit to get me a pair of jeans I bought in the sales last Saturday. They had to shorten it so that's why I have to get back into town to get it.
I haven't stitched a lot due to being too busy buying I mean, I learned how to cook a little while back, yes, you read it correctly, I just learned to cook and I'm 45 in 2 you gotta start sometimes don't
I had so much fun that I did a bit more cooking on my own and bought pots and pans and other kitchenware.
There's also been the New Year reception at work that exhausted me a bit so that was another weekend "gone to the dogs".
When I get home from work during weekdays I have been too tired to stitch, so that's how come my work hasn't become much bigger.
Last Wednesday and Thursday I was home sick. I have a cold and it still isn't over but now I can manage it. When I was home I thought I'd be able to stitch.... yeah right.... I was feeling so awful I slept most of the time and didn't do zilch. I didn't even bother to turn on my computer. I just didn't feel like doing nothing at all!
But now I'm back into business. Going to get dressed, yes I'm still in my PJ's. Going to town to get my jeans and once back it's STITCHING time!!!!!

Raining cats and dogs here at the moment! Speaking of cats.... I'm babysitting my neighbours 2 cats at the moment. Felix and Zoë. Zoë is my Gina's mum. Anyways, I don't know what's happening but at the moment I have to scoop up brown stuff from the floors when I'm there. They have a litter box but don't use it much it seems! I think they are taking revenge as their owners aren't there!!! Getting fed up cleaning their mess though and one of them even peed on the floor too! Really great!!! I had to take a tin of food of my cats along too because there's nothing left for them and the owners are only coming back next Thursdays at the latest! I also empty the mailbox and I can't close the darn thing anymore, now it's going to rain inside the box and it will all be soggy mail they'll have. Think I'm going to put some duck tape across it when I get back later on to clean some more. I have to get back to clean as I hadn't even noticed 1 brown spot and it's sticking to the floor now. So I put some wet towel on it to get it loose. - Hope no one is eating whilst reading this - LOL
Getting back to work tomorrow so I am going to stitch more today! I won't have that much time anymore once I'm at work.... boohoohoo....sniff, sniff, sniiiirfff.... I'm gonna miss my Queen!!!!
Going to fiddle with my computer a bit now, grab something to eat and start stitching in a wee bit!
See you all laterzzz

I did it, I did it, I did it..... I finished the first page!!! The first 5200 stitches are done!!!! Only zillions more to

Am going to work in blocks of 10 x 10 stitches as of now as Them little non-stitched dots scattered all over the first part made me crazy.

Not much more to tell here. Getting dark outside, it's not too cold but there's a lot of wind and loads of rain at times.
