A lot of progress on Follow Your Dreams

Of course it's been a while since I last posted. I am not blogging the way I use to but that's okay. I am really enjoying this piece and will be sad when it is finished. It is so pretty and delicate....I love it.

I am still having problems with Menaires Disease. Hopefully I'll start PT again and that will help. The place is suppose to call me and set up an appointment so far they haven't.

We had a Kitten Shower at the Cat Shelter a couple of weeks ago. We have over 110 kittens to adopt out the most we've ever had so they decided to have a shower. We adopted out 6 kittens and 1 cat at it. We were happy, a lot of people came in and looked but didn't adopt. But we figured it got our name out there. People are finding out we're there, since they moved the shelter out here, it's been harder to get people to come, where as before they were more in the mainstream of things. But the Humane Society is just in back of us. But by my figures (I write down the names of each cat (not kitten) adopted and so far this year 93 cats were adopted out, already more then last year. Speaking of adoptions our sweet Bert, a very shy cat and had been with us for 5 years got adopted. Bittersweet as he was one of my favorites really a favorite of a lot of us.
The adopters are friends of one of the volunteers who works with our Vet. They adopted 3 cats, the other 2 weren't with us very long and not as shy as Bert. They were told to give Bert a long time to adjust. I think he'll adjust to the cats quicker then he will to the human. Adopting the 3 they did brought them up to 6 cats in the house and we're told they will be spoiled rotten.

My sister came in last week and because of my balance problems I had problems doing some housework. The apartment is still very clean, I've been trying to make sure I catch little things and keep it clean.

My cat wants me off the computer so until next time Happy Stitching.

A New Start Well Underway

Good Morning! I laid down Behold the Lamb and am doing this piece. I love working on this piece I love the colors. It is so pretty and delicate and makes me think spring. Because of severe headaches I've only been working on it 2 hours at a time so that slows me down.

How was everyone's Memorial Day? Mine was fairly quiet. In the late afternoon some friends and I went down to Lake Michigan for a picnic. It was a little cool but not bad. We had really good Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad and cookies. Also some of the kids actually went into the water. Burrrrr....is all I can say. But they also flew kites. It was a fun evening.

Until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Has it really been a Month?

Good afternoon. I have been bad at blogging these past few month. The past month I got very little stitching in, I just lost interest I guess. I am getting back into it now. I saw this piece on 123 stitch and I had to get it. So I went and ordered it not knowing I would have to print out 76 pages as it was in Mar. Apr. issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. Well there went most of my ink. Then the piece just didn't hold my interest even though a friend asked me if she could have it when it's finished. So I will finish it. It's getting more interesting now that more is done on it.

Tomorrow is our last day of Bible Study Fellowship for this year. Next year we will be studying the book of Romans and I'm looking forward to that.

There really isn't a whole lot going on that is worth writing about. I wish I had the gift of words or gab or writing. Some of you can talk about anything and make it interesting. I'm not that gifted in writing. But thank you for reading my blog and I do enjoy reading your blogs and I enjoy the comments I receive.

Oh I don't know how many of you follow me on face book. I put a lot more on my facebook page then here. But yesterday my niece uploaded the funniest video. Apparently her 3 year old son's SS class sang in church. Trice was the youngest child and he did his own thing, basically stole the show. He didn't do the motions or sing, he just danced and did his own moves it was so funny. A good video for Christina to keep and embarress Trice with when he is a teenager. LOL!

Well....until next time....Happy Stitching.

Finished John 3:16

Good afternoon. I finished this piece about an hour ago. And I have kitted up Behold the Lamb that was in Mar.-Apr. 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I saw it on a post on 123 stitch and I had to have it so ordered it. I'm anxious to start it. A friend from long ago asked for this John 3:16 piece to give to her mother who is a retired missionary and recently widowed. I hope they like it. Unfortunately I am not perfect and my stitching is far from perfect. But it'll look better in a frame.

This year has been busy at the cat shelter. We already had over 50 cats find their forever homes, a couple were retunred because they didn't work with the other cat in the house but that happens.

Anyone have special plans for Easter? I'm not sure what we're doing....I may just buy a ham and have my brother come here, unless our other brother has us over. We don't always know until a couple days before.

I am so anxious to start seeing flowers in the garden. Some are just barely blooming. I love this time of the year.

Well...until next time....Happy Stitching!

Progress on John 3:16

Good afternoon! It's so nice out today after over a week of cold, rainy weather. It looks like spring will finally be here. I'm getting anxious to start seeing flowers come up in my garden again. I even bought potting soil to plant some new flowers in a couple of weeks.

Here is my progress on John 3:16. Actually I am a little further then what shows here. The finish line is in site. All I have to do is the last flower and butterfly and it will be finish. I am enjoying this piece but am so anxious to start my next piece. Someone posted a piece called "Behold the Lamb" at 123 stitch the other day and I loved it. Of course I had to get iIt was in Mar.-Apr. 2015 edition of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I found out where to order it from and ordered it, and downloaded and printed off all 76 pages, since they only do it by e mail. My poor printer. There are quite a few pretty projects I want to do from it.

Well....until next time......Happy Stitching!

A new start

Good afternoon! I am enjoying this new piece. Yes if is very detailed but so much easier then my last piece was. I wanted something pretty, something spring, something about Easter and this piece fits the bill in all 3 categories. This is progress after about 16 hours of work.

Today is so nice out right now. They said it was going to rain but so far I haven't seen it. I am so anxious for spring to come. Hopefully, we have seen the last of the snow. I can't wait to get some new flowers in my garden. For Easter Sunday I ordered some Daffodils for our church service in memory of my parents. We had a choice of Lilies, Tulips or Daffodils, I already had Tulips and Lilies so I ordered Daffodils.

This Sunday we are having a spaghetti dinner at church. I love spaghetti especially when made by someone else. I keep meaning to get my neighbors recipe for spaghetti sauce and make home made spaghetti sauce but I keep forgetting to ask her when I see her.

Well....until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Finally Finished

Good evening. Well it's early evening. I just finished Today I shall Live in Faith late this afternoon. Man those butterflies were hard. I was so happy to finish the piece. Tomorrow my sister in law will pick it up and it will be made into a pillow and our local Child Evangelism Fellowship can sell it at a craft sell this Sat.

Last Saturday I went out to eat with my brother and sister in law and my niece and her family. We celebrated Melissa's birthday. Afterwards we went to Melissa and John's house. I played 3 different games with little Katelyn (7) and of course I lost them all.

It looks like spring may be coming in. There isn't any snow in the forecast and they say now through June it's suppose to be warmer then average. Good. I was really sick of the snow.

There isn't much happening right now so until next time.....Happy Stitching!
