Happy Dance It is Finished!

I finally finished this piece!   I enjoyed doing it but it is really not a piece I would normally select.  That's the thing about Love Quilts though, You find yourself doing pieces you would never do otherwise!   Anyway I am happy to have it done!   Now unto the flowers for a coule of days anyway.  Well maybe I'll finish the Wildflowers.   I mislaid the book!  Grrrr    Hate it when I do that!

Tomorrow our little Addie turns 3!   She's growing too fast and is now a sweet little girl.  Still insistent she is having a brother in June.   We;'ll see.  For her sake we hope so.

Until next time!   Happy Stitching!

It's almost done

Hopefully I will have this done on Sat.   Then I'll go back to the Wild Flowers at least for a dady or two.  There is a child at Love Quilts having Precious Moments or Angels as theme of their quilt, so I want to do a square for that one. I just have to look and see what type of angels people are stitching as I have a couple of cute cherub books I'ld love to do a piece from.  Otherwise I have lost of PM books.  While I do enjoy stitching this piece.  It is sort of a fun one, it just isn't one I would normally pick out to do.  It will go on a Western Quilt at Love Quilts..  I made a lot of progress on this this past week.

    It's been a fairly quiet week so not much to say.  We had  a birthday get together for our mom's birthday last Sat.   It was a fun and noisy morning.  Johnny, Addie, and Katelyn can make a lot of noise!   But they are so cute.   Addie will be 3 this Sunday so I better get her card in the mail!  I met to mail it out today and forgot to!

Until next time Happy Stitching!

A week's Progress

Hello everyone!  Happy Good Friday!   It was on Good Friday 27 years ago my nephew Jake was born only that day was Apr. 1.    It's a little rainy today but it will clear out, and I think Spring will finally be coming to stay!   It's about time as it is getting to the end of Apr.
     The next few days will be busy.   My sister will be in town today and tomorrow.   Today we'll do some shopping and play Mexican Dominoes and Push Rummy later.   We love those two games and whenever my sister is in town we have to play them.   Tomorrow my brother and sister in law is having us over for brunch to celebrate mom's birthday.  She will be 78 on Tues.   So two of my nieces  and maybe a nephew will join us for that.  Can't wait to see Johnny, Katelyn, and Addie again!   Addie will be 3 May 1.  Can't believe it.  She is still very ademant that her mother will have a baby brother for her in June.   We're not quite sure how she'll respond if Heather has a girl.   But like I said to Kay when she was expecting Bryan Michelle and Heather then 6 and 8 were determined to have a sister.   When Kay wasn't looking they would put their doll clothes on Bryan to make people think he was a girl!   Fortunately they didn't harm Bryan he turned out to be pure boy and today is happily married with a 3 month old son who looks an awful lot like he did.
   I have gotten quite a bit of work done on this piece.   It goes fast when I work on it.   Now you can see what it looks like.   I think it will go to a Western Quilt later.   I seer it more Western then Music and Dance.   Another lady said she would fill my second spot on Taylor's quilt.   I already had the Treble Clef on it that I did last August.
     This week really has been a rough week with my Vertigo.   In fact I really have been nausiated a lot.  I finally got my ENT appointment moved up, and then did end up going to the Dr. on Tues. as I was trying to work in the Food Pantry at church and it was awful.   I ended up leaving early and seeing the Dr. later, he gave me a different prescription that helps a little bit.   Still not gone but at least I can function.  l  just have to be careful and lay down a lot is all.

Last weekend we had our first Easter Egg Roll at church.  Because of rain and my vertigo acting up so bad I didn't get to go, but I heard a lot of good reports and they were very happy with the success of it.  It'll be something they'll do every year.   I also think just on Trunk or Treat the nieghbors are going to be asking the church to do it.     Have a great Easter Weekend!   I love this time of year.   Easter really is my favorite Holiday as we celebrate the death and ressurection of Christ and have hope and peace in Him!

Need Opinions Please and be Honest

Okay here is my dilema.   I said I would fill in for Love Quilts to do a Music Square.   Had the pattern all picked out and laid it aside and can't find it.  In my search for my music pattern books (which I only found 2 or 3 of the 6 or 7 I have) I found this piece and thought "it's easy, cute" I'[ll do it for Taylor."  So away I went stitching.   It's going fast as you can see as I started it 24 hours ago.  So this is only about 5 hours of stitching.   Anyway, the further I get the more convinced I am that this is not Taylor.  No I don't know her but it just doesn't seem Taylor to me, and it says more for a Western quilt square.  I have 3 options 1) to go to another piece Stoney Creek which is all I have outside the one I want to find.  Which will take a while, and I am struggling with Vertigo so hard to stitch long periods of time.  2) just keep stitching this one and hope it's okay  3) there is someone who might be willing to stitch a second square, I might just ask her to do one.   It'll be her 2nd square for Taylor but this is my second square for her to.  Treble Clef I did last summer is going on her quilt.   What would you do?  I love doing this piece, and will keep at it.  Then I'll go back to the flowers maybe, or find another music piece.
     Like I said I am really struggling with Vertigo.  It's so frustrating.  In fact it's been so obvious that people at church really notice it bad and have helped me out a lot.   I had hoped to wortk at the Easter Egg Roll tomorrow but doesn't look like I can now.   Maybe next year.   Someone did give my dad a suggestion that worked for their mother in law, the dr. had told her to do taking Vitams B, C, & E for 10 days, taking less every 3 days.   Anyone ever try this?  Anyone with Vertigo have any suggestions.   It is the lightheadedness I'm having problems with not the dizziness.

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

Easter Finish

I just finished this piece not too long ago.   I loved doing this piece and it provided a nice break from Wild Flowers which I will go back to doing tomorrow.  This will probably go to a young girl at Love Quilts who chose Christian as theme of her quilt.

I rhink I passed the instpection today for my yearly rent.  This is the first time they have done an instpection for this.   It's to see if there are any damages, and if there is then I'll have to pay for them .   Hopefully they didn't find anything.  I did tell them this is first time this particular inspection was ever done and they said they realized that I wasn't the first person to tell them.   We'll see.  They have a major nspection being done by the city and the state coming up so they want to take care of what they can ahead of time.   Thji is there first year of going through this and last year we had all different people in the office so this team is very nervous.  Good as that may work for them.  This place is pretty good about keeping up on reapirs though so I don't think they have much to worry about.

This Sauturday we are having an Easter Egg Roll for the neighborhood children at church.   It should be fun.   The children will hunt for eggs and then come inside to hear the True Easter Story.  

Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

A New Start

I laid the Wild Flowers to do this piece.  With Easter coming around the corner and we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ I wanted to do this piece, and I may try to find another Easter piece too.   I love the Easter Season.   It's my favorite.  I love the colors in this piece.   It's not quite half done, but I started it only yesterday so you can see it's going really fast.  

 Today is a beautiful day outside, in the 60';s and we're loving it!   Tomorrow is suppose to be 80 in land, us a little cooler but severe storms are coming in too.   Of course they will be at night.  I love night storms.  When we were young my sister and I would shriek with delight at the thunder and just giglle as we lay in our bed.  Awww the memories.
 Tomorrow after church we are having lunch with my brother and his wife.  They said they just felt like having mom dad and I over.   I work at the Resource Center after church tomrrow but that only takes a few minutes. 

Well --until next time   Happy Stitching!

Isn't it Beautiful?

I didn't fall off the wagon as when I stitch it it'll go to my sister-in=law.   She took me out to Jo Anne's and I saw this pattern couldn't refuse it.   I have since looked at the pattern, it's not going to be an easy stitch.   I did tell Beth I would do it for her, no guarantees when it would be done.
    Well, until next time....Happy stitching!

Slowly but Surely

I don't have that much more left.   Hopefully by end of next week it will be done providing I don't decide to add more to the bottom.  I lvoe this piece it is so pretty.   I'm just anxious to get it done and do something else..
   Today seems to be a descent day with the Vertigo.  It's not acting up as bad as it has been.   Good as I won't be able to see the ENT until mid June.   That's a long time to put up with Vertigo.   Although last time I put up with it 3 or 4 months.
   It seems so nice to have the spring weather popping in.   I know they say this will be a rough year for allergies and I'm feeling it.   I finally got an Air Purifier to help and surprise it helps a lot.   What took me so long.   Actually my sister bought it for me for Christnas at the suggestion  of one of our sister in laws.
    Thank you for reading my blog honest this piece will be finished some day!   Until next time Happy Stitching!
