A cute piece


It's been a while since I've blogged and in the last 2 weeks I stitched maybe a whole 3 hours. My hand is really hurting and to do anything with it is painful. Finally this past week I decided to stitch a little. The wedding piece is making progress maybe early next week I'll scan it. This is a piece I did a few years ago for my mom's best friend.
Summer has finally arrived! It's in the 80's and is hot. The other day we had one wicked storm. We didn't get it so bad in our neighborhood but south of us got hit so hard. One village was totally closed for a couple of days. Yesterday we had to go through there to get our haircuts and its was bad even then. Trees down everwhere, even on top of 3 or 4 houses that we saw. What a mess! My niece lives in that area and said she finally got power back Tues.
I've been keeping busy doing odd and end things, going to my parents to stay with mom on Fridays so dad can golf. Earlier this week we met with Gleaners, (Feed America) and got our food pantry approved by them. We passed in flying colors what a relief.
I have an internet addiction. Well not quite that bad but I found these games on Facebook I can't leave alone, Farmland, Farmtown, and My Zoo. Have to check on my crops and animals often! LOL! It's keeping my mind off stitching though. Whiskers isn't too happy with it though.
Whiskers will be 17 in Oct. and is becoming my constant little companion. When I'm at the computer he's on the desk right next to the screen, when I'm in my chair he's on th arm or back of it. It's so sweet. I can tell he is getting older.
Well...I do want to try to stitch before going to the Food Pantry so until next time.....Happy Stitching.

Very Cute! I love the saying :)

Those games on Facebook are very addicting and my stitching time has suffered as well but they are so much fun, it is hard not to keep checking in on your crops and animals.

I have not started playing those games. I'm afraid to get started, hee hee. I hope your hand feels better soon.

Sorry to hear your hand is causing such trouble, hopefully it will resolve itself soon and you'll be able to stitch comfortably again. Storms seem to have been quite nasty in several areas lately, we go hit here recently too. Love the Chocolate piece, very cute.
