Back to Stitching on America

Good afternoon! I have gone back to stitching on this America piece for my brother. I plan to finish page 9 and page 3 this time around. Pages 3 and 4 look very simple as they are mostly of the sky. Page 4 only has about 4 columns. It's going quite fast right now not so much confetti stitching on left on this page.

Well....not much has happened these past 2 days so until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Summer Flowers Finished

Good Afternoon. I just finished these a couple of hours ago. Later in the week I'll mail them, the Disney Car, and Ladybug Baby off to my nephew's wife. They will finish them off the way they want. These flowers were so much fun to do. I hope to do the fall flowers in Oct. or early Nov. We will see.

Sunday our church had their annual neighborhood picnic. The church service was held outside. We were so pleased with everything. We had so many people come in and are excited. In fact in a few minutes another friend and I are heading to the church and helping our Pastor and his wife write out the thank you for coming cards. Usually I do it by myself but that's only when we just have a few visitors, that many I need help. It was such a beautiful day for it. We had the police and fire dept. there, plus a minor league basketball team, games for the kids. It was a fun day.

So I guess I better go get ready to leave, get off the computer. Until next time....Happy Stitching!

Back to Summer Flowers

0 Good afternoon. I guess it's a good afternoon. I was saddened to hear about the reporter and camera man being shot live on TV today. All we can do is pray for the families.

I got out Summer Flowers to finish up. It should be done by early next week if not before. I don't have that much more to do on them. I really am enjoying this. I have to look for the Lady Bug baby then I can get this piece, Lady Bug and the Disney Car all out in the mail next week. They are being done for my nephew's wife, and 2 children. I just hope I don't have to redo lady bug. I'm sure I'll find it when I go digging in my cabinet where the pieces are.

We are looking forward to this Sunday. We are having our annual Pork Out at church and again opening it up to the neighborhood. This year they are having games for the children, a dunk tank and other extra things we don't normally have. It's going to be a fun day. We are excited about it.

Well...until next time Happy Stitching!

Barnyard Kitten is finished

Good afternoon. I finished Barnyard Kitten today. I loved doing this piece. I volunteer on Saturdays at Faithful2felines and they asked me to do a cat piece for a big event they are having next month so I chose this piece. This cat looks a little like my cat, Saturn. Now I'm getting the flower piece back out to finish that up.

Sorry this is so short but not much to say today so until next time Happy Stitching!

Progress on Barnyard Kitten

Good evening! It's hot and humid outside, a good day to have spent inside with the airconditioner on. Tomorrow will be hot too for a while, they say we'll have a lot of rain the next 3 days. We need it.

This week has been a wierd but busy week. Monday my internet and phone service went out again. I called comcast and asked why it happened so often and I was sick of it. I was nice of it. They sent someone out Friday. He replace the wall plate. Oh my phone service and internet service were out when he arrived. But he got it to working again. He thinks it might be something in wiring in the wall but he thought maybe the wall plate would help. Also that day I let firefox update something and I never should have. Finally called or I should say got through to Geek Squad and they helped me get things going. Also reocommended I use google chrome. Well I uploaded that today, and I don't know. I ended up using firefox so I could upload a picture here. I think I will be going back and forth between the two. I couldn't find where chrome put the picture I uploaded.

Friday was also my birthday. I did go out with some friends and had a nice lunch. But most of the day I fretted over my computer, and cat. My cat is fine and the computer is fine now.

Wed. I got to go with my sister-in-law and niece and great nieces and nephews to Dutch Village in Holland, MI. It had been years since I had been there. It's changed a lot. They had rides and animals. The kids got to ride the rides, especially the girls. Johnny was more interested in learning things. He liked seeing how they made wooden shoes, and in a little Dutch Schoolhouse, took in some of the Dutch words on the chalk board also dressed up like a dutch boy. The girls got into dutch girls costumes. To be honest, they looked natural on them, even though they are not dutch at all. The kids got to feed the goats, all three liked that. The girls and I did the dutch dance with the dutch dancers after seeing a performance by them they asked the audience to join in. Well, at least those that would. I couldn't say no to the girls. But it was a fun day. Isaac being only a month old needless to say slept through it all for most part. It was first time I saw him.

Thursday was a funeral. It was a sweet spanish lady from our church. Half the funeral was in spanish the other half english. It was a huge funeral which we knew it would be as everyone loves the family.

Well....until next time....Happy Stitching. Hopefully this piece will be done mid week.

Barnyard Kitten Start

Good Evening. I laid down the flowers for a week or two to get this piece going. One of the workers at Faithful2Felines asked me to do a cat piece to sell at the Open House we are having next month. So I thought I better lay down the flowers and do this so she has time to frame it.

This weekend is Unity weekend here in our town. It's a Christan Music Festival that goes from Wed.-Sat. and brings in thousands of people. While I like Christian Contemporary Music I hate crowds and loud music so I tend to stay away from it. I did go one year and it was fine. It draws huge crowds to our city.

My sister is coming in Friday for the weekend. So it'll be a busy weekend. I love it when she comes and hate it when she leaves.

We are having Bible School this week at our church. I worked at it Monday but they had more workers then kids. That's not good, so I decided they didn't need me. It was so unorganized Monday at first. We were told to be there at noon and Bible School would run from 12:30 to 3:30. The people doing the Bible School didn't show up until 12:45. At first we thought we'd have to wing it and then call CEF to see what happened. They thought it was 1. Either way they should have been there earlier, giving us some direction as to what they were expecting. Oh well.... the kids seemed to have fun and learn so that's the main thing.

Well, not much is happening right now so until next time....Happy Stitching!

Progress on Summer Flowers

Good morning! I thought I would share the progress I made on these this past week. I love stitching these. I'm thinking these will be done early next week.

Remember I mentioned in my last post about a potluck at church and Pastor asked everyone to bring a big dish to pass. Well everyone did. I made a huge bowl of macaroni salad. Problem was so did 2 other people. Oh well....we had had plenty of food, and I had enough macaroni salad left over for the next 3 days, throwing away what was left. Considering there was so much macaroni salad there I was satisfied with what was taken at the potluck. We did vote on our Worship directors and they will be moving here from AZ in the next couple weeks. They want to get up here so they can get their two children in school at the start of the school year.

My niece and her husband and two boys are now in Sweden until next August. They seem to be doing okay.

One of our favorite cats at Faithful to Felines and his brother finally got adopted this past week. We are so happy for Felix and Fester, both are nice cats. Fester was the quiet, lay back one, sort of shy and that's why they wanted them adopted together, also they had been together since birth. Felix was a loveable little character. Always scratching at his room door to get out, going to anyone who would pay attention to him. He often was my little escort. He also was full of mischief and personality. We just loved him. He probably would have been adopted long ago but he and Fester had to be adopted together and not too many people want two new cats. We just hope they get all the love and attention they deserve.

Next week is a busy week as we are having Bible School at church, and plus other things will be going on so not much stitching will be done. I do hope to start a small cat piece to be sold in Sept. when we have our open house at Faithful to Felines. They asked me to do one.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!
