Some More Progress Anyway

I've stitched some on Treble Clef this week and slowly but surely made progress this past week. It's not that hard of a stitch for it being by Stoney Creek. I seem to pick a lot of their patterns don't I? This is progress after about 20 hours of stitching. The bird is just statting to come in but I doubt you can see it...It's just the beak that is there.
It's been a fairly quiet week this week. My mom is home now and doing okay. She's still having some back pain though. We just hope she gets through the holidays pretty pain free.
Do you have special Thanksgiving plans? We're going to my youngest brother's house for dinner. Their daughter, Tabbi may be working but we'll have Ashton there probably. Also Wendy's mother and step father will be their and Wendy's other daughter, Tara and her two girls might be there.
The 4th of Dec. we are going to see my niece, Michelle and her baby, Nicholas. They will be in the Grand Rapids area for 3 days at her sister's house. So we are having a brunch with them that day, then that evening I will be greeting at Christmas on the Lakeshore our church is putting on 4 performances 2 the 1st weekend of Dec. and 2 the second so I'll be busy with that. They have already put up a lot of the Christmas decorations. A little early but because of the play they really don't have much time after Thanksgiving so had to have a head start. Me not being a Christmas person anyway can't seem to handle the early decorations posted it on my facebook and boy have I been abused in fun! Even our Pastor calls me Scrooge.
Then on Thurs. I came in to work in the food pantry and ended up helping them with the decorations. It was fun but I sure didn't know what I was doing from adam. I don't even decorate my own place! I know Scrooge!
Well, I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, enjoy your dinners and the leftovers. Ours starts tomorrow when we have our annual Harvest Dinner at church. Lots of great food! Until next time....Happy Stitching!

Another new start

This one I will stick to the finish. I am enjoying it. It will be a Christmas Present for a friend who rally has gone through the storms this year. First her step sister died suddenly then she found out her own sister had cancer, then the dept. she had worked at at the phone company was eliminated so she had no job, and her mother died right at the same time. She loves flowers, music and birds and this piece has all 3 so I thought it would be fitting for her.
My sinuses started acting up a month ago and for a while I started to feel better than started feeling miserable again. Now I'm starting to feel better again and hope I stay that way. Once winter comes I'll feel better for sure
My mom is home from the Nursing Home now. She was just there for a couple of weeks until she started getting her strength back up a little.
For anyone around Muskegon, Michigan our church is having Christmas on the Lakeshore Dec. 3, 4, 12 & 13. A lot of work is going into it. It's going to be a production like Calvary use to do only on a smaller scale. I'm going to be one of the Greeters. My sister is making my costume for it.
Also the weekend of Dec. 3, Michelle and Nicholas are flying up from CO. Can't wait to see Nick. So we are having a get together Dec. 4. Also Amanda and her husband may be here sometime in early Dec. They were in England for 3 years as Amanda is in the Air Force. She is expecting their first child in April so she's in the reserves now.
Well that's about it for me. Thank you to everyone who reads my blogs. I appreciate it and love hearing the comments. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Three adorable Trick or Treaters

It's been a while since I've posted pictures of these 3. Johnny is the little cowboy and will be 3 in December. Addie the butterfly is now 18 months, and Chelsea the pirate is 9 months. Aren't the adorable? I love them so much I got to see Johnny earlier today, he had his cowboy outfit on to show his great grandparents, grandparents and me. He was so cute.

I'm making some progress on Catastrophe. Maybe later this week I'll post progress on it. Until next time happy Stitching!
