I am looking for an OOP chart or kit by Candamar Designs called “Teapot Stack”. If anyone has this and would be willing to part with it please let me know. I just love the colors in this pattern.

I really didn’t get to stitch at all this weekend, which means I have not progressed as much as I wanted too on “Pretty Pumpkins”. I will post a picture tomorrow of my progress. I had written over a month ago that I wanted to try a rotation of stitching, but just as I wrote that my Dad got really sick and was in the CCU unit for over a month. So needless to say I never started the rotation. I think tonight I will start, don’t know yet what WIP it will be. I will see what kind of mood I am in when I get home from my day at the office in San Diego.
I have a few WIP’s to choose from so that should be fun chosing!!

I recently started a new blog. It is http://needleartsbystephanie.blogspot.com please visit me and tell me what you think. I have notice that most people are using Blogger instead of WordPress so I thought I would try it.

Happy Stitiching…hope everyone has a great weekend.

I have been really trying to focus on “Pretty Pumpkins” from Glendon Place. I am hoping that I will get to put more time into it this weekend. I really want to start working on another project but am going to try and stick with this one. Thanks for looking!!

Pretty Pumpkin Update 10/8/2009

By the way thought I would include this picture too. We are Dodger fans and I guess so is our Yorkie “Vegas”. Yes, he does have a Dodger jersey amongst other team gear….Haha!!

Go Dodgers!!

As promised I’m finally able to add a picture of my WIP “Pretty Pumpkins”, by Glendon Place.

I will try and take a better picture later, it does not do the color of the fabric justice.

So the past three weeks has been a real rollercoaster ride for my family and myself. My Dad is still in the CCU unit and is still on a ventilator. He is really weak so they decided to put a trach in so that he can start to be weened off the ventilator. I am really encouraged on how much progress has occured over the past week, hopefully each day will get better.

I have been stitching a little. I have been bringing “Pretty Pumpkins” by Glendon Place with me to the hospital, it is really starting to take shape. I know that I have lacked adding photos but will really try to by the weekend.

On another fun note…I am going to the USC vs. Washington State game and will be tailgating before the game…fun times!! After last weeks loss and am hoping that this will be a better game. Go Trojans!! Fight On!!

My Dad was rushed to the hospital last Friday/Saturday am with a GI bleed. They could not isolate where it was coming from so they ended up having to remove his entire colon. He has been in the CCU unit for a week…and it has been a slow recovery process. I have been going between home and Palm Springs for the past week, so have not been able to post and very little stitching. I am praying that he will get better soon!!
