I've been poking away at a little cross stitcheroo. Poking has been a challenge because I either set it aside forgotten for months at a time or cross stitch until my eyes cross in kind.

The other day I came home from a day of work and found a certain Tigger in
my chair with my stuff picking up my slack.

He looked a little blue though, despite the sunlight. I think it had something to do with the fact that he managed to poke the needle clean through his paw, thread and all.

What a beautiful cross stitch. I love seeing them lying around, beside big comfy chair waiting patiently for the owner to one day finish them.

Sorry poor Tigger took a nasty stitch! At least he had the common sense to stop and wait, unlike most men that forge ahead, trying to forget the pain and look tough!

I do like that he took time make himself a great cup of tea as well.

Speaking of tea, would you like to meet up next week sometime for some tea or coffee? I am no longer contagious, except to myself! My poor immune system just couldn't get rid of the cold and it did indeed turn into a sinus infection!

The boys are doing well and Em is getting through the fence!!! It looks awesome! Levi was even carrying one board at a time (1x6x6'!!!!) to Emerson. He loves to help and carried 2 screws around following Em, just in case Daddy needed them on the spur of the second!

Take care! Talk soon.

Haha. What a great Mark. That was Mark, I suspect?

This was pretty funny. Cross-stitching...reminds me the good old days when I was 9 years old. ;)

Hey there!

Oh it looks beautiful! I'd love to see it when you have it finished, or should I say when Tigger has it finished!!! Enjoy that chair!

Hey Kelly! Thank you. And yay! You are betta. :) I would love to "tea with thee". Next week, not so good but next next is good. Did you get pics of Levi helping Em? It sounds very sweet.

Moni - I don't believe he will ever heal. The emotional wounds of being stabbed by my husband are as deep as the physical wound itself.

Ace - It was him, indeed. Marks are great, aren't they? Yes, we have this ongoing game of "plant-Tigger-in-unsuspecting-place-to-surprise/scare-spouse" which started 1 or 2 years ago.
9 was a good year, wasn't it?
And hey. :)

Kori, I have a hard time moving my hiney out of that chair once I settle myself in. Especially with the sunshine on my face. Joy! Somewhere out there is a cross stitch computer program in which you can design your own patterns or turn photos/art into patterns - therefore combining two relaxing vices into one deadly addiction.

Theresa - Thank you! If Tigger takes a funky picture of it once it's all done I shall post it. That is if I ever get myself out of that chair ....
