Brown Pony Start

I started this piece a couple of days ago. Now that the head is finished, it is going faster. This piece has a lot of browns in it but it's fun to do. This will go to a little boy at Love Quilts who chose Farm Animals as theme of his quilt.

I can't believe how fast this year is going. It's already coming up to Memorial Day Weekend. Anyone have special plans for it? At this point I don't. But anything can pop up. Hope everyone has a happy and safe Holiday Weekend. It's going to be a warm one too. Good weekend for those going camping.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Music Speaks is Finished

I woke up way to early this morning so finished this piece off. It was a fun piece to do and probably will be framed next year and given to one of our Pastor's for Pastor's appreciation in Oct. 2013. All 4 pastors and their wives are good in music.

Now I'm doing a Brown Pony for a little boy at Love Quilts who chose Farm Animals as theme of his quilt. I'm getting a lot more stitching time in now that things have quieted down a little. Things are almost too quiet.

This Wed. is our last BSF meeting until fall so our group is having it's final fellowship. I hate to see this year end, it was a good group of ladies I was with this year. I've been in it 3 years nows. It's actually a 7 year Bible Study, then you are a graduate, but they are adding
Revelations to the study in 2015 not sure what book they will take out.
Revelations will be real interesting since there are so many different interpretations of the book.

Last week our Food Pantry at church received two large gifts. One was a money gift from Dancing with the Stars (our city's version of it) and the other was from a Food Drive the US Postal Service had. That one really helped a lot and the money from the Dancing with the stars will help a lot.

Speaking of Dancing with the Stars anyone else watch it? I'm not sure who I want to win. All 3 couples are so good and all 3 deserve the win. I am sort of pulling for Petra and Don only because Petra hasn't won the trophy yet where as Mark and Cheryl both have. I'll be happy whoever wins.

Well since I'm basically kicked out of my chair (I'm sitting on the very edge) I'll go do some stitching. Until next time....Happy Stitching!

Friday Progress Report

I had a little more time to stitch this week so I got quite a bit done on Music Speaks. There is a quite a bit of confetti stitching on it so that's why it's slow going but I am enjoying it.
It has been a relatively slow week this week so not much to report. Little things have come up but nothing to write about.

Today I am going to spend mostly stitching I haven't done that in a long time. Saturn is pushing me off the computer chair so guess I better go. Why does he want the chair when I get on it? Well until next time.....Happy Stitching.

Music Speaks-Progress

I haven't had much time to stitch on this this past week plus when I do stitch Saturn is making himself known by playing with the material or the thread. I forgot what a challenge it is to stitch with a young cat. Since he is 11 lbs I can't really call him a kitten. He turned 10 months this past week.

Last Saturday we went to Addie's 4th Birthday Party. She is such a little sweetheart. As soon as I got there she ran into my arms with a big hug. (I wish I could drive, I'd visit them a little more. Of course she had to make sure we had our pajamas with us and made us put them on immediately. She showed me her new puppy, Cheerio. What a bundle of energy she is. And I thought Saturn had energy! Not compared to Cheerio.
My nephew, Bryan and his wife and 17 month old son made it in from Chicago area. And of course baby Nolan was there and was just starting to walk. By the time I left he was walking across the room. He is one determined baby. We had fears Addie would be really making sure Nolan knew she was boss when he was born, but I don't know, Nolan gives her a run for her money. He determines to do something, he does it. He is so cute. Of course Addie's and Nolan's aunts, uncles, grandma and cousins on their dad's side was there and most of them were 5 or under so it was a noisy but fun afternoon.

I went to Kohl's this past week and going back there with my mom and brother today. I am so happy I dropped one size for sure maybe two. I like loosing weight! Now if I could just break this Pepsi habbit.

Well....I'll until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Another new start

This year I'm on a role, if I keep this pace up I will have about 40 finishes this year which will be a first. But we'll see if I reach that yet. I only had two finishes in April but it was not a good stitching month.

I started Music Speaks a couple of days ago. I am enjoying this piece. There is a lot of back stitching, but I think the piece is so pretty. When I'm further along you'll see it come to life more.

My sister is going to be in town tomorrow and part of Sat. I'm hoping to do some shopping tomorrow, but it depends on how or mom is feeling. Her heart is acting up again and she's not feeling real good.

Saturday my sister's grand daughter is having a birthday party. She turned 4 on Tuesday. Everyone has to wear pajamas! Wonder why my brother in law decided to let his Ass. have the day off and he work instead (LOL). Our dad isn't going either.

Well...there isn't much new so until next time Happy Stitching!

Song Birds are Finished

I finally finished this piece. Boy if it could talk, it would have a story to tell about all that went on while stitching it.

Today we celebrated my mom's birthday at my brothers. Their two daughters and 2 grandchildren were there. Johnny and Katelyn stole the show. They bought Johnny a Police Car to drive when he is at their house so he and Katelyn rode in that a while. Plus Johnny played 3 songs for us on what I forgot what you call the instrument. You put the music on it and then pluck the strings it tells you too. For only be 5 he did real well we could easily tell what the songs were.

Saturn and I are getting to know each other pretty well. He kicks me out of my chair when he wants it. He also likes to tear kleenix apart just like Buffy use to. He is bringing so many memories of her back. Yet he is cuddly like Whiskers, so he has the best traits of both those cats.

Finally it is starting to warm up again. Unfortunately the tulips in Holland MI bloomed way to early and now almost all gone and the tulip festival doesn't start until later this week. But it's great to be getting the warmer weather back and see the sun again.

Well until next time....Happy Stitching
