Soccer Players

Once again it's been over 2 weeks since I've bloogged.  Truth is I almost lost my stitching mojo and for about a week just didn't even stitch.  I got so frustrated with that wedding piece I laid it down for a while.  Maybe after the first.   Blending filament is absolutely awful to stitch with.   I have the second bell almost done but just couldn't take it any longer.

   So I got this piece out to do for a girl at Love Quilts.   She likes the colors of lime and blue.   And also likes Soccer along with other things.   So I got this piece to do.  It is  going quickly.  It got me back into stitching.  I even have my next piece picked out.

   This past week our Landlords who live in another state and owe several Apartment Complexes decided to have all our hot water turned way down and would only have thenm turned up if everyone in each section would sign a waiver saying we would not sue if we got burned by hot water.   Totally ridiculous!  Our manager had all the water tanks turned down without telling us ahead.  Didn't even tell us we had to sign a waiver to get it turned back on until we called the office to complain!  We are so upset.  Long story short, all 4 of us in our unit did sign the waiver yesterday  I came right out and told them off and told them they should have warned us first and told us about signing the waiver ahead of time.  I never complain I have lived here a long time and never caused any trouble but I was angry.  I told them the least they could do is send out notes telling people about the waiver.  But they won't I know that.  I said I know you don't care about us and left.
Okay I spouted out they saw a side of me they never saw before.   I called today and apologized for my behavior they accepted it and told me I wasn't the only one upset. 

   My last post I mentioned I was going Apple Picking.   Well I went and it was fun.   We even got a hayride without the hay!   There was about 35 of us on that.   We were going to a couple's house for potluck dinner but there  were too many of us so we had the potluck at church.  It was so good  we had the best Barbeques.   I made my 7 layer bars  they liked those too.  I didn't take any home.  It was a beautiful day and it was fun.

     Monday we are having Trunk or Treat at church.  I'm doing the Apple Cider and donuts again.  Last year we didn't do it and people missed it so we are doing them again this year.   I'm looking forward to seeing the kids all dressed up. 

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Still stitching on Wedding Bells

It's been a couple of weeks since I posted.   Mostly because I really hadn't had time to stitch that much on this plus working with metallic threads really slow you down.   The bells are completely done using blending filament with 1 strand of floss.  Not my favorite thing to do  Metallic thread is not easy to stitch with.  I have found using shorter threads does help. 
Tomorrow my sister is coming in to town for a couple of days.   Wed. we'll go do some shopping.  I'm hoping to go to Jo Anne's and get some floss  and also some 4 braid thread for my next project.   I'm doing a Halloween piece   a cat sitting on some pumpkins.  Also by Stoney Creek.   I must like Stoney Creek as I've done well over 50 of their patterns.

Saturday I'm going Apple picking with our SS class.   I've never done that before so am looking forward to it    Only it's suppose to be done in the 50's Sat.  Brrrr....after having 70's for a few days.

I don't get into sports too much but I really am happy the Detroit teams are tunrning things around.   After loosing so much the last few years, this year so far has been great.   Especially the Tigers and Lions.   So I'm rooting for them.

Well....untill next time Happy Stitching!
