A New Interesting Online Game ...

A friend of mine told me about this online game and so I decided to check it out! It's called Dragon's Cave. The purpose is to adopt a Dragon Egg and raise it until it hatches and then raise the Dragon! Sounds pretty interesting. So I have adopted my first egg! Please click on my Dragon Egg to check it out!

Adopt one today!

Just a cute Lil Dragon Egg that will one day be a big beautiful dragon! So we'll see how things go!

Until Next Time,

UPDATE ~~~ Yeah so this wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be LOL.

Another Update on the Snowman!

Hi Friends and Fellow Stitchers!

I finally picked up my stitching again the other nite thanks to some support and encouragement from Dawn. She IMd me and we had a really nice conversation. She helped make me feel better. And reminded me how therapeutic working on my cross stitching would be. And she was absolutely right! Thank you so much, Dawn, for being such a great friend!

So since then, I have been stitching a bit and I have an update on the cute autumn snowman! I have been having so much fun stitching this piece and watching it come together. So here is the progress so far ...


I think it's looking pretty cute. Of course even once I finish all of the cross stitching, there is LOTS of backstitching to do. But that will really bring it together. It's kind of hard to see on this picture, but the eyes of the snowman are 2 beads. And I had such a hard time finding a needle that I had that was skinny enough for the beads. I had to borrow a needle from one of the Mill Hill kits that I have. I had a bunch of needles before which included beading needles, but after moving a couple of times, they have disappeared. Oh well, I found a needle & got it done. I hope to get the rest of the cross stitching done within the next couple of days & then get the backstitching started by the weekend at the very latest, but hopefully by Friday. And of course I will post another update after I finish all of the X's! :)

Happy Stitching All!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥

Just Wanted to Let Ya'll Know ...

Hi Everyone!

I just thought I would let you know in case you were wondering, the HAED design Wicca that I started I am still planning on working on it ASAP. Right now however, I really do have to get these RR's finished that I am in. I don't want to hold up the show so to speak. I am really looking forward to getting back to Wicca though. And I can't wait until it is finished. I am hoping that once I am able to get back to it that I will be able to get it finished by the end of the year. But if that doesn't happen, my goal is to at least have it finished by the beginning of March, 2010. We have our county fair in April each year and I would really like to be able to enter it into next year's fair. My friend that is also working on Wicca is making AMAZING progress on it! She is almost nearly finished! And it looks absolutely beautiful!!! It is exactly 3 months since the day we started on it and I must show you her progress so far.


Isn't it beautiful!!! This is the latest update I have seen. She may even be farther than this. I just think she is doing such an awesome job on it.

So anyways, again just to let you know, I WILL be getting back to this very soon!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
