I love reading everyone's tags. It's interesting to find out unusual things about fellow stitchers and to find out I'm not the only crazy person out there. So here goes mine. Mylene tagged me to name 7 weird or random facts about myself .
First, the Rules:
1 Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2 Post the Rules on your blog.
3 Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4 Tag 7 people and link them.
5 Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
Second, 7 weird or random facts about me:
1. I have my own motorcycle that I love to ride.
2. I love to organize and label things. Office Depot is the greatest place on Earth.
3. I have been to Disney World/Land 9 times and would go 9 more. I love Mickey.
4. I love to do home improvement/ do-it-yourself projects. I'm pretty handy with a skil saw.
5. I'm obsessive about my calendar and planning. I'm so worried about forgetting something or double planning.
6. I have never met an ice cream I didn't like.
7. Right now I have 7 pairs of running shoes in my closet. Maybe I should use them more with all that ice cream.
I'm new to this blog thing, so I don't have 7 blogging friends that haven't been tagged yet. So here are the ones I know:

"A Happy Heart" Stoney Creek Collection 2008
Sunday we had our monthly "Stitching and a Movie" at Bridget's house. It was a lot of fun. We watched No Reservations with Katherine Zeta Jones. It was very good. Bridget gave everyone a little happy because she felt guilty about holding us up on our round robin rotation. But it was a very nice gift. Each one fit us perfectly. A cute tin pail, some floss, fabric and candy. What could be better?!
I also kitted up two more projects to start. I've been doing so many Christmas things, I wanted something more springy. So I got a Lizzy Kate June FlipIt to make into a needle book and another LK "Love Crazy" sampler. Just something fun to break things up. I got Theresa to order my fabric today for the Nora Corbett Reindeer. I can't wait to get started.
I've been working on the Santa Sleigh Ride. Had to fix a mess up, but I think I'm back on track. It's hard to skip a large area on linen over 2 threads. At least I have trouble with it. Started another ornament from the JCS 2007 ornament issue. "Winter Love" or something like that. Almost done. That's all for now. I must go stitch. I think I'm addicted. It's all I can think about. I haven't gotten anything else done lately. I need help.

It's been a while. I haven't had time to post or read other blogs. I've been too busy stitching up a storm. I'll catch up with everyone soon, though. We woke up this morning to a terrible storm- thunder not snow- and the sound of fire trucks in our neighborhood. Lightening struck a tree by a house on the backside of the neighborhood and the house burned down. Please pray for this family. I'm not even sure of their name. But they have nothing left. It really puts a lot of things into perspective. I'm worried about what I will stitch next and they are now worried about where they will sleep tonight. We take so much for granted.

I don't know why I bothered making a stitching rotation if I'm not going to go by it. I don't like being tied down to such a schedule. I'm a moody stitcher. I just might not want to stitch on the gingerbread houses on Thursday. I thought it would help me finish started projects and not get side-tracked on something new and exciting. No such luck. Especially smaller quick projects. I really like to finish what I start before moving on, so this business of having several projects going at once is new for me. But I do like having choices for my moods.
Have a great day!!
