January TUSAL

Just a bit late posting TUSAL, but I was a bit ashamed that I haven't stitched more and therefore would have more threads, anyway I wanted to start fresh so this is it...

January 7 --  introduction and goals for the year

Well I'm Bonnie and I love to cross stitch and craft and of course I love to read. Been married for 33 yrs and I have one daughter and 2 grand-dogs. My other fave thing to do is cuddle with my black lab,shes a big ole girl-all 65 lbs of her. And I work full time as a retail supervisor and I pretty much love my job......

And as for goals, I would love to finish a few of what I've started and pretty much just stitch from my stash this year, we will see how that goes......

A few that I really want to focus on------
Sunbonnet Sue sal by Lesley Teare, just started today--
Canadian Sampler by Stitchrovia
Dog Lessons
Snow Days

All I'm gonna list for now, because I really want to get these done!!!
talk again soon,Bonnie

things are heating up...a little

Yessss! we are supposed to get to 35 today, almost time to break out the short britches..haha, just kidding, I don't even wear shorts anymore,,, In fact I prefer colder weather, I don't care for summer time, although most of my family does---but its ok,, cause everyone likes what they like!!!

Enough of the weather update,but I had a few minutes before work today, so I started the Sunbonnet Sue sal by Lesley Teare. I think I'm gonna really like this one, Sunbonnet Sue is a favorite thing of my moms so I hope to finish this sal. So I have only had time to stitch the border, so I though I would post a pic!!!  January Sue or Sam???

I'm off work tomorrow so I hope I have a good stitchy day, talk again soon...Bonnie

No Excuse...well maybe a small one...

It truly has been a long time,but I miss reading the blogs that everyone still shares and I need to get better about this myself, so I am going to give it another shot.  I have had some issues with my eyes though, so that has prevented stitching to some extent, but hopefully that is a bit better, anyway lets get this party started!!!

It is really cold here in NC, I think it was supposed to get down to 12 last night, didn't stay out to test that theory though.  I am off work today so I decided to get caught up on blogs and sites that I have neglected and maybe stitch a bit too!!!

I started the Canadian Sampler by Stitchrovia, I have loved this since I saw Pam Reid stitching it on you tube and since my
husband is part Canadian, I just wanted to stitch it. So here we go, I know its a small start,but its a start, talk again soon!!!

my new happy....

yeah i know, been a long time since i posted,and i have been cross stitching some,not a whole lot though, i think my problem is i want to do so many,that i never get started...but i've decided this has to change,here is my last start

its the frosted pumpkins-story time sampler-and its so cute,so i'm hoping to get caught up---cause i just bought the new christmas town that just came out and i neeeeed to start it...

but on to the reason my blog name has changed----i have fell into the world of planning--HAPPY PLANNING to be exact, i started with filofax and franklin covey and then to color crush and on to midori and there are things that i truly love about each of them,but i have since found true ***happy*** since i found the MAMBI HAPPY PLANNER and for those that might not know,thats me&my big ideas---they're great,think i have found peace for a bit,who knows i may never have to buy another one,at least not till december of next year

i have actually bought two of them and some what combined them,this is the first one

and then ordered this one from the MAMBI website

and here is what this week looks like,i kinda have a thing for doggies

so i guess thats how i been spending my time and i love it all--talk again soon...bonnie
