It Sucks!

My New Vacuum!


Its an LG.  Has a Hepa filter, wand, magnetic hose and retractable cord (thats a nice bonus) and it SUCKS!!  I can say it was disgusting to see just how much my old (and non-sucking) vacuum did not clean.

I was easily talked out of the Eureka AirSpeed by D.  He didnt like the fact that the only place you can get it was Walmart.



Movies - I love watching Pride & Prejudice, the one with Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet and Matthew Macfadyen as Mr Darcy.  Dame Judy Dench plays a wonderful Lady Catherine – the person you just have to hate.

I do have to admit, Ive never read the book and now I want to read Pride & Prejudice & Zombies after listening to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

New project start

Found Denise’s version of La-D-Da’s Pumpkins Three and just had to do something similar.  So I went and got the stuff to get started! 

Pumpkins Three 10-8-10

40ct Weeks Havana with GAST Cherry Bark (border) and Harvest Moon for the pumpkins.  DL helped with the floss toss but after stitching a few lines on the first pumpkin I may add Weeks Carrot for parts of pumpkin as well, finding the Harvest Moon hiding a bit in the Havana color.

Its my first 40ct project and so far so good.  After stitching a while and taking the pics, Harvest Moon is growing on me.

Well, Im off to watch the season ender to Haven :o)

Edit:  I had originally had Denise’s new niece as the person I got the coloring idea from on Pumpkins Three


  1. That is a sucky-looking vacuum! Congratulations.

    Pretty stitching and La-D-Da's designs are such fun.

  2. I will get a new vacuum when my son moves out. We didn't get a new couch until he went to school. I want a new vacuum so badly!

    Love your start on Pumpkin - I like your version! Liker pumpkins and the cherry bark is GOOD!

    BTW - I'm Denise - Alivia is my new niece.

    Can't wait to see how your project comes out - it is a quick stitch!


  3. Lighter pumpkins not liker. Oops!

  4. I can SO relate to the vacuum problem! Mine just got its belt repaired by DH and a plastic joiner on the tube broke so I now have it splinted with 4-pens and shipping tape! Love the colors in your pumpkin project! Can't wait to see more.
