4 in a row


WOO HOO!!!!  Jimmie Johnson won his 4th consecutive Nascar championship today!!!! 


And another record went down in Nascar history today.  The Hendrick team got the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place championship finishes.  No other team has ever done that.  This post is my way of congratulating them all & thanking them for a fantastic year of race watching.

Thanks for visiting.

Unfortunately, Barbara................

Yep, I'm blogging again today.  Just couldn't resist giving this game a try.  Hope you enjoy!

Found this game on Annie's blog, and had to give it a try.  The way it works is for you to  type your first name preceded by the word "unfortunately" into Google and see what you get.  Here's some of what I found when I Googled Unfortunately Barbara.....
  • Unfortunately Barbara got sick of being typecast in horror movies.
  • Unfortunately Barbara didn't seem to get it.
  • Unfortunately Barbara was psychologically unstable, ill-bred and despite outward appearances, on opening her mouth, could be counted on to be the rudest, most foul-mouthed, classless person in a room.
  • Unfortunately Barbara lost her sleeping companion, Spikey, her favorite stuffed dog.
  • Unfortunately Barbara couldn't have been more wrong.
  • Unfortunately for Barbara, the marriage proved disastrous.
  • Unfortunately Barbara is also a talker.  Nonstop.
  • Unfortunately Barbara had a few technical hitches.
  • Unfortunately Barbara is teaching and writing about Western Civ when she should be writing about politics.
  • Unfortunately Barbara has left the building.
Now, give it a try for yourself.  I'm sure you'll find it somewhat amusing.  Bye now!

Happy Friday the 13th and more!

Can't believe it's been so long since my last post here. I need to keep up more often (well, like that's gonna happen - NOT). ;-) I have been stitching a little and did finish a piece for Halloween. This is an OakHaven Design called Goodnight Halloween & I stitched it on a piece of 14 ct Sapphire Stitching's Lemon Splash Aida. Isn't he just the cutest? The poor little guy is just tuckered out from all the treating he did. LOL
Now I'm stitching exchange projects, so won't be posting anything about them until they are sent & received. And I just found the cutest 2 charts that I've added to my wish list. They are just too funny, so am going to share pics of them with yall. These charts are by Prairie Moon and are titled The Crypt Club and Merry Christmas. They sure aren't your normal type of designs, but they are just so me. Yep, I have a weird sense of humor. LOL
I had an appointment for my yearly boob smashing exam this morning, but guess I was so anxious to have it done that I went YESTERDAY! Talk about feeling dumb! But they were nice and did the test for me so I wouldn't have to return again today. I made my appointment for next year on the same day as my eye exam, so I shouldn't make this mistake again. (at least I hope not).

For all you fans of Weeks Dye Works threads, I just read that their threads are going to be colorfast. As they produce new batches of colors when they run out, the colorfast production will begin. What a neat idea, so their won't be a problem with washing projects with these overdyed threads in the future.

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my blog. I do so appreciate everyone coming and leaving comments. I know I don't leave comments for everyone like I should be doing, but hope yall know how much I enjoy reading your blogs and viewing all the beautiful stitching. It's time for me to get stitching, so I bid yall tu-da-loo!
