Patriotic Heart & Ribbon is finished

I finished this a couple of hours ago. It really was a fun stitch.

I finally got a new keyboard. One where everything works on it and is easy to use. Seems great. My last one some of the capitals wouldn't work unless I had caps lock on.

Tonight is the last night of Adventure Club for the year so it's Carnival night. A fun night for the kids. I will miss them through the summer though this year went much to fast. I really enjoyed the 4th graders we had this year. Hmmmm maybe next year I'll try to work with 5th graders. We'll see.

My sister is coming into to town today and leaving tomorrow. Because fo the Carnival tonight and Food Pantry tomorrow I won't get to see her much this time. We might go out for lunch or breakfast.

Well, I guess I'll go back to stitching the clown although I really want to start Addie's Birth Sampler. She is going to be a year old Friday. I can't believe it.
Until next time Happy Stitching!

Patriotic Ribbon and Heart

Well.....I started another piece. I'm not forgetting the clown piece, it's 2/3 way done. But, this piece is also due May 1 and I couldn't see being late for two pieces. This is my progress after 12 hours of stitching on it. It's gong quite well and I love stitching on it.

It is such a beautiful day outside. I think our cold weather is gone for the season. It's 40's today but might reach 50 and over the weekend 70's! Wow! Hopefully spring is here to stay. I love spring season but I don't like my allergies acting up! Oh well....can't have everything!

Well, I need to run up to the store to get some ice cream topping for tonight. It's the last two weeks of Adventure Club for the season so tonight the kids get ice cream and next week is the Carnival which the love! Until next time Happy Stitching!

Back to the Clown

This is progress after 100 hours of stitching on the Clown Face. It's coming alive finally. It is a fun stitch and hopefully will be done by end of the month.

We are enjoying some nice spring like weather. It's suppose to get to mid 60's here. Then drop for a few days next week. It's still not bad though compared to a month ago 50 is great.

Well, there really isn't much to say since my last post so until next time Happy Stitching!

A Very Quick Finish

This was done in about 4 hours time and about 5 hours of pouting time! I started it at 6 am today. Was absolutely positive I had it centered right for once. Got it almost all done and discovered I used the wrong fold as the center. (The material and pattern had been sent to me as they wanted it all to be unified. I was so upset when I discovered what happened I did a lot of pouting after that as frogging was not an option nor could I redo it on different material. So I finished it off hoping they will be cutting the material down a little, they can cut at the top. I hope it will be okay. This is for a special quilt for Breanna that we are doing at CSA (a group within Love Quilts).

I just got back from walking Autumn. She gets so excited, she watches for me to come then when she sees me from her deck she gets all excited goes into the apartment and greets me at the door. After about 10 minutes she has calmed down enough to take her for her walk. It was a perfect day for a walk not too warm and not to cold.

Well, I'll go back to that clown piece tomorrow. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Chelsea's first Easter

I haad to grab this picture of Chelsea, I love it. The bunny is bigger than what she is. Actually Elaina said it was bigger then her and Josh put together. One huge bunny.

I need to get motivated to do some housework. Then I'll stitch on that clown that is taking me forever to do. Hopefully I'll make the May 1 due date but at this point I doubt it.

Until next time....Happy Stitching!

Big Bear Band is Finished

Happy Easter to everyone. I know it's a day early but I wanted to say it now since I was posting anyway. Hope you all enjoy the time with your families. I'm going to my parents house tomorrow. Which reminds me I better get the green bean caserole started.
I finished this not too long ago and it's hot off the iron now. It's such a cute piece but took forever for me to do and am happy to have it done. Now I'll work ong the clown piece for a couple of days before starting another project which will be a quick heart piece for love quilts.
Today is so beautiful outside. I took my brother's dog, Autumn out for her walk and she just enjoyed it so much. This is a perfect time of year for our walks not too hot and not too cold

Update on Big Bear Band

I picked this back up last week and probably will be done with it tomorrow or Friday for sure. It's a cute piece but been a hard one for me to get into I don't know why. But I will finish it off now.
I think Spring is finally coming to stay. I think winter had it's last Horrah for this year anyway. We lucked out of the snow storms and just got a little snow but it was cold. Now each day is suppose to warm up. I know this is short but not much is happening to write about right now. Untill next time....Happy Stitching!

Trip to MO

It's been over a week since I have blog. I just have been super busy. I haven't even stitched too much.
On Friday my parents, brother, & sister-in-law and I went to MO to see another brother and sister-in-law and their family. It was a nice time but great to be home and I can't wait to sleep in my own bed tonight.
Friday we got there and Kenn and Denise had a grilled chicken dinner for us. It was soooooo good.

Saturday we went to where my brother works and saw 4 of the Clydesdayle Horses, they are beautiful! A couple of them were out of the stable and romping around a little in a confined area. They gave us some entertainment! Then we saw some of the sites like the St. Louis Arch etc. I didn't get pictures of the arch this time as I had before. Saw the Cardinal Stadium. They were getting ready for todays Opening Ceremonies. Then we went back and stayed at the house. Caleb came over for awhile.

Then on Sunday we went to Caleb's house. It's a fixer which he is slowly but surely working on but a nice house. It will be really nice when done. Then all of us went to Josh and Elaina's and saw the biggest reason we went to MO. Chelsea Rose. She is now 2 months old and is a beautiful baby! Right now she seems to look like Josh.
I will post progress on stitching tomorrow or Wed. But right now I just wanted to post some pictures of Chelsea.
