Trying to beat the storms

So this is progress on Doc Hudson. It is now half done and I hope the next half goes quicker then this half did.

Well I had a lot to say but I hear the thunder and the lightning flashed so better get off computer. Until next time Happy Stitching!

This looks like a mess but will be....

Good Evening everyone! I've been able to stitch quite a bit the last 2 days, thanks to my eye doing somewhat better. It looks like a mess right now but I'm hoping it resembles a car. It is a Disney Car....Doc Hudson, but right now you can't tell it. It will go to my great nephew, Wyatt. When it's done I'll mail this and Aubrey's Lady Bug piece to their mother. She'll either frame it or have it sewn into something for them.

I finally gave in and went back to eye dr. this week. The good news was it isn't an infection and the implant is fine. He could tell something was irritating my eyes though and they were sore but he doesn't know why. I asked if it was an allergy and that's why my eyes were so runny. He said no the eyes were runny because of the irritation. Anyway he gave me some eye drops to take for 2 weeks and hopefully that will clear things up and no more problems. I hope.

Now that the weather is warm the flowers in my garden are coming up and pretty. Well most of them are pretty. There are some that are really ugly. I'd like to get rid of those. I have to find out if those are flowers or weeds. If weeds they are going for sure. If flowers maybe at end of season I'll dig them out and plant something else. I didn't plant the flowers actually I'm allergic to flowers, especially roses and there are a couple of rose bushes out there. I still think that's part of my eye problem but we'll see. The roses are pretty, and I figure as long as they are outside and I don't have the sliding door open should be fine. The lady that lived here before me planted the flowers. Now I get to take care of them. I love watching them bloom.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

Finished! Spring Flowers

I loved doing these. They were so much fun and so pretty. For sure I will be doing the other 3 patterns in the book. Now I'm doing Believe by Stoney Creek. I hope to do a car pattern for my great nephew, Wyatt after this piece.

I am starting to wish I never had the cataract surgery. The first one was a piece of cake but this one, it's been about 2 months and I'm still having problems with my eye!

Last Friday my brother, sister-in-law and I went up to Hesperia and met up with our aunt and uncle. It was a lot of fun. We also stopped at an Amish store that was really fun. I could really spend a lot of money in there.

It seems nice to have the warmer weather here to stay. I have never had a garden before but the lady that lived here did have a small garden. I'm trying to keep it up. It does look like the lilacs are dying now, so I'm going to need to cut them down. I'm home the rose bushes produce roses even though I'm allergic to them. We'll see...

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

Spring Flowers

Good Morning! It looks like it's going to be a nice sunny day out there. I finally turned on my air conditioner for the summer I think. So good bye low electric bills for the summer. Although they say they are not too high here......we'll see. These apartments are smaller then Carriage House but I still say bigger then most apartments.

How was everyone's Memorial Day Weekend? Mine was nice and quiet. This Friday is when my brothers and I are going up to the cematary where our parents are buried. We'll meet our aunt and uncle up there and then go out to eat. Wonder if the restaurant will have their anniversary. Last year we went up in April I think it was. And the restaurant was having their 11th anniversary. We all are fish eaters and were luck enough to get 10 pieces of smelt for $1.10 I forgot if potatoes and vegetables were included. Anyway for 7 adults my uncle only paid $25.00. Now that was a cheap meal.

I love stitching this piece. It is so pretty. I have to lay it down every so often because my eye is still having problems especially in the sun. And I live on the side the sun beams in. In a way it's nice because you get so much light compared to the apartments across the hall who have the trees. But you don't get to enjoy the fresh air or feel the wind as much on this side because there are no trees so air conditioners go on and electric bills go up. This piece will go to Quilts for Older Children and Adults. Then I think they are sending it to to Love Quilts, Brazil. There are four different flower patterns in this book and they are all so pretty. (One for each season) I think in time I may do them all.

Thank you for reading my blog and making comments. Also thank you for following my blog. I see I'm getting more followers and I appreciate that. Some people have such nice blogs and chat about almost anything and make it interesting. I'm jealous of those people, but I sure enjoy their blogs.

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

A Very Quick Finish

This was one of the quickest finishes I have ever done. Especially when you consider I had to frog half the lettering because I read the pattern wrong and did it in wrong color. Fortunately it came out easy. After I had the border completely done....I discovered one of the two colors in the border was wrong. See it's the designers fault for confusing me! She used two different color schemes and actually 924 was suppose to go with 3726 or 3802 was suppose to go with 991. I used 3802 and 924 together! I almost did the lettering in 991 but discovered that and frogged half of the lettering to right color. Like I said designers fault for confusing me . That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL!

Thank you for reading my blog and for your comments. I really appreciate them.

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

Lady Bug Baby is finished

Good Morning! I finished this past about 3 hours ago. I had very little to do on it this morning. Last night I was just too tired to finish it. I'm happy with it. Of the EMS Animal babies I've done, this was the easiest and quickest to do. It was a fun stitch too. When these animals first came out and they were free I thought they were the dumbest things and I would never do them. Now we have to pay for them and I love them. When they first came out they had pacifiers in their mouths, I think that is what I didn't like about them. This one will go to one of my great nieces. It'll be made into a pillow or a blanket, or wall hanging for one of them.

Now I'm doing Housework by My Big Toe Designs. This looks like it's going to be a quick finish. I saw this pattern and I had to get it. It is so me. It just called out my name and said it was worth falling off the wagon for. And since I fell off the wagon anyway I bought about 5 or 6 or 7 other patterns. Although most of those I had someone in mind for.

Anyone watch Dancing with the Stars? I was so mad at myself last night, I fell asleep after Noah danced woke up to see his second dance and fell back to sleep again. I saw portions of last night one GMA and looked like it was good. Wonder who will win? In a way I think Amercan sentiment is with Noah, but those other two are really good dancers.

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