UFO's


I went through my UFO things looking for Light of Peace and Grrrrr couldn't find it! So I pulled out Wild Menagerie to start on first. It's a beautiful piece but done on black material, which slows it down somewhat. When done it will be 4 wild cats, Tiger, Bobcat, Lion, and I forgot what the 4th one was. First I have to finish up the PM piece by Jan. 12 and get it in mail so received by the 15th. I think it'll get done. The boys head and face are in and part of his shirt. Now I'm putting in the girls head so we'll see. Once the head and faces are done the rest of piece goes great.

I also pulled out Walking on Water by Mystic Stitch but I need to find that pattern! What's wrong I have the pattern to Light of Peace but can't find the piece which was 3/4 done, and I have the piece to Walking on Water, but need to look for the pattern! Oh well.....

Today is President Ford's funeral. His death hit me as my path crossed his many times in my early years, like preschool-early 30's. He visited the Elementary and High Schools I went to was speaker at my sister's HS graduation. Then in Bible School he was there a couple of times and lived down the street from the school. Then I worked for relatives of Betty's. When I moved back to GR I moved to Heritage Hill District and it was right down street from his childhood home, and not far from the Museum. So I saw the family off and on but never really knew them personally. They were so nice though whenever I saw them they were always so friendly and pleasant to talk to. Even one day I forgot he was in town with then candidate Ronald Regan, I took some girls from Awana's there and they ran past Secret Service to shake his hand and he let them. A day the girls never forgot. That was last time I saw him except on TV.

Well, I'm going to go back to stitching on the Precious Moments piece. I need encouragement on Wild Menagerie is why I'm posting it. Until next time Happy Stitching!

The cats look like they will be gorgeous. Looking forward to watching your progress. Good luck on finishing the PM project. I hate having to stitch to a deadline as I never seem to be able to keep on a time table to finish things. President Ford will be missed, he was one of those presidents I think everyone liked.

The cats piece looks interesting...I'll be watching your progress on it!

Do you still live in Grand Rapids? A lot of my extended family on my dad's side lives in that area. My Granddaddy's family farm was in McBain (they sold it off about 20 years ago) and parts of his brothers' and sister's families are still up around Grand Rapids.
