If I am going to be late on a swap for any reason I will contact my partner and the host. I would appreciate the same from you.
May 21, 2013 I am working on the 1, I was sick earlier and my truck was in the shop and I ended up being late on several swaps. The 1 is a cross stitch swap and I have restarted it with different patterns 3 times. 3rd time is the charm I just had to make sure there were no fractional stitches. That is what was screwing me up. Having trouble making them and then they were throwing my count off. I plan to have this in the mail by this weekend.
Also working on my ratings I am gradually getting the ratings done and will probably be going thru my ratings next week and matching them up with swaps and trying to clean off my sent list and getting them archived.
My favorite music is classic country. I also like some of the 50's through 70's rock and roll. Although no hard rock. Some of my favorite musicans are Elvis, Mel McDaniel, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Billy Ray Cyrus, Patsy Kline, Barbara Mandrell, Roy Acuff, Hank Williams Sr and Jr. Dolly Parton. And many more.
My favorite books are older Sci-fi. Such authors as Iasaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Anne McCaffrey, and others. I also like some romance and mysteries these books I read and then pass on. The Sci-Fi books I keep and read over and over.
Update I got a Kindle Fire and since getting it I have found many books I want to read. Many are free although I do not mind paying for them if they are really good or are some that continue series that I have started. At present I am reading Edgar Rice Burroughs "John Carter of Mars" I am just ready to start book 3 - The Warlord of Mars. There are 5 total. The other book I am reading is "Works of Andre Norton" 12 of her books in 1. They are technically young adult books but I happen to really like her stories.
It is really hard to choose. I like comedies such as "It's a Mad Mad Mad World", action adventure movies with Steven Seagal, Chuck Norris etc., sci-fi "Star Trek", "Star Wars" "Lord of the Rings" , musicals and lot of the old classics.
Have been going to see more movies lately and watching more at home.
At present it is Cross Stitch, Plastic Canvas stitching and crochet. Over the years I have done fabric painting, sewing (mostly clothes), latch hook, paint by number, stamped embroidery and when I first learned crochet it was thread crochet then later I learned to do granny squares with yarn and that is mostly what I do today is yarn.
I also have several collections that we have been working on for many years.
First is elephants I like them with their trunks up. I got my first ones at the Missouri State Fair over 30 years ago. My favorite is a ceramic one that is painted lavender with pink spots. I don't know why it just is. I have seen a cute one called Humphrey in the magazine Cross Stitch Crazy,
Next is Dragons. Hubby liked the really fierce ugly ones. I like the cute ones. I have several cross stitch patterns that I would really like to make but at present have not been able to get the supplies. And to go with the dragons we had to have wizards.
Next I have many different magnets. From hand made to souvenir maps. Many different Christmas ornaments that I have made or received in exchanges over the last 14 .
I am retired since July 2005. Worked 28 years for the city. We had 2 kids Daughter has 3 boys ages 22, 23 and 25. Son has daughter 19. And I have 1 great granddaughter.
Pets we have 1 cat SuzyQ very spoiled. She is 12 years old and is sitting on the chair beside me watching the leaves fall and blow in the front yard. Also we have 1 ferret named Charlie Brown. I don't know how long we will have him but we will not be getting any more after he is gone.
