A New Start

Man! I've been ignoring the blogs lately. Time just gets away from me. I am trying to stay away from the farm games except when I have to check the crops and now I'm trying to get it so it's once a day maybe twice, I'm spending way too much time at them. Also this game Marble Lines is too adedicting. That reminds me I haven't checked my email today. Okay enough of that.
This piece is going to a child at Love Quilts who chose Under the Sea as theme of her quilt. The mermaid is well underway. The fish, octopus, starfish and under water plants have to go in yet. The caption will say You-re a Keeper. I thought it was cute and so far is going well.
This coming up week is going to be really busy too as we have special Family Meetings at church with Tim and Susan Vermaas. They have been at our church 3 or 4 times now. Susan is a vantriliquist and Tim does the Bible lesson. They seem to click with our church and do a good job. I'm going to be a counsellor this time which will be my first time doing that.
Also my sister is coming in on Wed. After I go to Bible Study we'll head to Jo Ann's as I need to get a pattern for the dress I'm wearing in our Christmas program this year. They are putting on an elaborate program and those in the program and the greeters have to wear dresses from the early 1900's. My sister is making the dress for me and my sister-in-law said she would look through her hats. Yea, we have to wear hats too. My problem is I hate the hat they have with the dress I like best. The hat I like best I hate the dress so I'm hoping we can make that hat match the dress. We shall see.
Right now my sister is in CO getting aquainted with baby Nick he is 2 weeks old now. She plans to fly out there once every 3 or 4 months to see them.
Well my cat has discovered I'm at the computer. He doesn't like me there and will be in front of the screen in a minute. Yep here he is. Until next time happy Stitching!

HAPPY DANCE!!! A Finish Finally!

Yes I am shouting!!!! I am so happy to have this piece. Through all the problems with my hand and then getting really busy this piece just dragged on and on and it wasn't one that held my interest even. I will not be doing this pattern again believe me. This will go to a little boy at love quilts

Life is getting really busy lately. We have some things at church coming up like the Vermaas Family Meeting, a major Christmas Production (more on that in months to come). Plus I joined Bible Study Fellowship and that requires a lot of reading and indepth studying which is what I really needed and wanted. So on goes life.
Last week my niece, Michelle, had her baby boy. A little early but all is well and he is healthy and home now. His name is Nicholas. Michelle and Scott are finding out their lives have changed forever. Sleepless nights and all. Michelle gets this whole semester off from college and Scott is taking the next semester off so for the first 6 or 7 months of Nick's life he will have a parent with him.
Johnny is going to be a big brother in Feb. He doesn't have a clue but he'll be 3 by that time. So hard to beleve he will be a big brother let alone be 3. He's so sweet and cute. Chelsea and Addie are both growing. Addie is changing from a baby to a little girl it seems. Chelsea is crawling now. Boy I miss those babies and wish I could see them. Logan is already a month old now too. Can't wait to meet him some day....I haven't met his 7 year old sister or 6 year old brother yet. (Due to divorce and we live a few states away from them it's hard for Jake to bring those two up here.)
Tomorrow would be my grandmother's birthday. I think she would be 105 if she was still alive. She'll celebrate her birthday in heaven! to decide just what I want to work on next, the wedding piece, the food piece or start something new. In meantime I'll go read some blogs. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Finally A Post

Where have I been.'s been a very busy summer. Plus for a long time I couldn't stitch because of my hand which is much much better now. Then I just got busy with summer activities. Which I haven't figured out when summer was a cool summer. Great for me but not so good for those who wanted it warmer.
Then my computer got struck by viruses and trojan horses and I couldn't use it for a while. If I did get to a computer it was at my brother's or my dad's. So after a month and now I doubt I will make it to 100 posts this year like I had wanted I am finally back. Now to catch up on everyone else's blogs.
This piece is boring to do but almost done now. It is the 9 Planets (yes, Pluto is there although since has been discarded as a planet.) It will go to a young boy at Love Quilts who chose In Space as theme of his quilt.
There is a lot happening at church coming up with special meetings and the lanch of our kids clubs. It use to be Adventure Club but because we are using different material this year. We're using material from New Tribes Mission we will be changing the name of the club.
I hope everyone has a great Labor Day Weekend. I hope to finish this piece up. Until next time Happy Stitching!
