TUSAL and A John Deere

First off I want to say that for the time being I am moderating comments on my blog. Someone from China posted about 8 porn comments a couple days ago. They were scattered all the way back to the first of the year. I had to go in and delete them.

Wow! I truly don't know where the time is going. It is zipping by so fast. I am always on the count down on my work schedule. Work three days, off two, work two days, off two and than back to work three days. Does it seem like I am living for my days off? lol.

I just finished my two day weekend and now I have three days to work and am off Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. So that means that the rest of my shopping and stitching is going to have to be done in the mornings before 11 o'clock.

It looks like it is going to be a pretty day today. Temperature is 31 degrees and supposed to get up to 55 degrees. I think I can handle that. lol

I have had fun this year with the Totally Useless SAL that Yoyo has done a fantastic job in starting and organizing. She is continuing the SAL for 2010 and is taking signups now. If you didn't participate this year please stop by and join in the fun. If you did join us this year you need to stop by and sign up for 2010.

It seems like I am always late in posting when the New Moon comes around and Yoyo has to give me a little nudge. So anyhow here is the last Picture of my Kitty Bowl. I wanted to put a red bow around here neck and dress her up for the holidays but, didn't have time to search for ribbon. I collect tins so the poinsettia is the lid to a tin that I am keeping my latest ornament projects in.

BTW, that is a pretty big bowl so give me a break OKAY? I am searching for the perfect container for next year. Maybe a wee tiny one hehe, so it looks like I am making a lot of progress.

One of my coworkers, Rhonda likes John Deere stuff so I went on a mission to find some John Deere fabric. I had in mind to sew up some ornaments but when I got one put together, it didn't show the design at all so I am going what to do? So I just finished it this way. I put dark green fabric on the back and made some twisted braid using green and yellow.

I hope to finish up Cat In Snowman's Clothing and the first ornament in Little House Needleworks Sal by Christmas. I will show some Pictures.

Hey! I like that kitty (and I'm not really a cat person) and the she allows us to see your progress just fine! Of course all the finishes help us with that too!

I have to tell you I do like your "green tractor". DH retired from the "yellow tractor" company...but now DS works for the "green" one. That's how we must refer to them around my house (LOL). With the competition as it is I rarely make "any" tractor, ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Oh, I meant to mention that I got those "chinese" comments too, weren't there just a ton of them!!

You know what, I got something similar! It has a bunch of links on the comments, so I just deleted them. I think there were about six of them! I might need to start moderating my comments also!

Wendy said...

That is a lovely ornie you made! Great work!

About the comments, you can also moderate your comments. You receive first an email if you received a comment and then you can just publish or refuse if you like. By this you don't have to go through all your blog to delete those comments.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday.

Great ornament.

It's a shame some people haven't got anything better to do than cause trouble on blogs!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas Bonnie

What neat fabric. Your bowl looks great.

Karen said...

Love the ornament and great progress on your TUSAL. Totally forgot to post this month....oh well.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday and get some time to relax and stitch.

May also want to check out the sale at Counted Stitces in North Augusta--25% off almost everything and they are so nice. Starts Saturday (10-2) and then back on Mon-Wed. Definitely worth the trip if you have never been.

I know the Needler is having their sale also!

Great ornament! I had the same thing happen on my blog a few days ago, so I too turned on the comment moderation option. I had to go back to about eight posts and delete the comments!

Carol R said...

The same thing happened on my blog too. It took ages to delete all the comments so maybe I should moderate comments too.
