2 Peas Challenge

If you got a tattoo, what kind would you get and where would you put it?

I have thought about this a lot (mainly because I love the show Miami Ink on TLC...dh and I watch it together all the time). I see so many great ones and think I like that...I just have not seen something that I absolutely love. When I was about 20 I wanted one and we even went to the tattoo place. I wanted Eeyore...he is my all time favorite (just look at my scrapping room) any way...I looked at a bunch of different Eeyore ones but I chickened out! I have needles...I dont know what would bother me more the needles or the sound that the machine makes! Where would I want it...on the lower part of my back. My sister has a butterfly on the lower part of her back...it is really neat. I think if I were to get one now it would have to have some kind of meaning...other than just because I like Eeyore! I think about it a lot but I will probably never go through with it. Did I tell you that I HATE needles...lol

  1. Great post! I also hate needles! That has a lot to do with my not having gotten one when I was in college. I'm hoping to get one in the future but my first hurdle is getting my DH to agree to it. My fear of needles is something I'll have to work on if he actually agrees to it which I'm highly doubtful he will...LOL!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
