Another new start

I thought this would be a pretty piece to do.  I know it's definitely spring like but I really like it.  I'm not sure what I will do it,  It may possibly go to Love Quilts for a future religious quilt for a girl.
I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoys all the food.   I'm going to my brother's for Thanksgiving dinner.   It'll be fairly quiet as the little ones will be at their other grandparents so we'll miss them.   But we'll see Kevin and Beth, and I think Jeremy and Christina and their other halves will be there so that will be nice.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

And Yet Another Finish! Two in one week 4 in 3 weeks.

November seems to be my month of finishes!   I don't think I've ever done 4 in a month let alone in the first 3 weeks of the month.
The Little Mermaid nearly didn't get finished.   Yesterday I was working on her in the Food Pantry as it was quiet and she went flying across the table and unto the floor, with my help.   The hair and face were so frustrating!   They took 4 days to finally finish.  That was this morning!  The rest of it was done in about 3 hours.   I still say if I decide to do a Disney Princess again I may go to a Psychiatrist first to see how sane I am!  The piece I'm doing now is fairly easy too.   It's a flower and butterfly by Imagination with Ps. 17:8.

Well....until next time---Happy Stitching!

And a third finish in November!

I am on a row.  Three finishes in November.  I haven't finished 3  within the first two weeks of a month in I don't know how long if ever.   I received this as a RAK from Sue V about 3 years ago and finally had time to do it.  I had to leave the bottom part off as I miscalculated and left too much on top.  I am not only finish deprived but center challenged as well!  Now to get out Arielle and hopefully finish that within a week.  Than that and the rooster can go get framed and be mailed out to Missouri for Christmas.

Well--until next time Happy Stitching!

Rooster is finished

Hi Everyone.    Two finishes in two weeks!  That's rare for me.   I finished this this morning and really enjoyed doing it.   Now to select my next project!

We had our first snow fall yesterday.  It snowed hard for a while and I really thought we would be covered, but fortunately the ground was too warm and it didn't last long.   Reality is though it will be here soon enough like it or not.  Oh don't get me wrong, winter is a pretty season, and when we were young I loved sledding and figure skagting etc.   Now I'm older, the older I get the more I dislike winter.  Oh well...this is Michigan and we do get the best of all 4 seasons so we are lucky.   About a month ago on ABC News they were saying the 5 safest weather places to live in USA and Michigan was one of them.   It surprised me that Alaska  and Hawaii were in the top 5 but they were.

We are making plans for Thanksgiving.   We are going to my brother's house.   So it'll be nice.  I don't know if all the kids will be there or not, probably 2 of them, but the one that's married may be with his family.  Nuts, I want to see Johnny and Katelyn.   But I will shortly afterwards as we'll get together for Johnny's  5th birthday in Dec.   Can't believe he's turning 5 already!  He is still a loveable character.

Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

A New Start well under way

This is from the same book the Pig and Bunny I did a  year ago were from.   Stoney Creek's Farm Babies.   I love doing the animals in this book and I'm sure I'll do more.   This rooster will go to my brother who collects roosters.   I love doing this piece.   The rooster is so much fun to do I decided to do the grass and sun before I finish him off.  
Well....until nexst time Happy Stitching!

Soccer Players Finished

Hello Everyone!   How was your Halloween Night.   Mine was a lot of fun.  We had Trunk or Treat at church and we had a lot of children show up.   They were so cute.   The highlight for me was my niece, Tabbi came with her 9 year old son , Ashton.   Unfortunately we were really busy when she came so I didn't get to talk to her much.  I really felt bad as  I didn't mean to ignore them.   Also my niece Melissa and her husband John, brought their two little ones over to the apartments to see her Grandmother and me.  Johnny was Captain America and Katelyn was a bunny.  They were so cute.   So it was a great night.

I finished the Scocer players about an hour ago.   I'm not sure why the different skin tones one leg one tone, the other another or the arm different too.   But that was the pattern.   It was a fun stitch but I'm glad to have it done. I have started a Rooster for my brother.   My next few pieces will be animals I think.  The rooster is from Stoney Creek's Barnyard Babies.  So far it's going well.

We are enjoying some nice weather but it is suppose to get colder.  It is that time of the year.

Well....Until next time  Happy Stitching!
