Page 5 of America finished-3 done 13 more to go

Good afternoon! I know it's been a couple of weeks since I posted. Just not much has happened and this piece just didn't go too well on this page. It was very slow going. Lots of confetti stitching that drove me nuts. I swear half the time I spent on this piece was on horrible page 5 that's what I called it horrible page five. Well that working copy has been torn to pieces now. I'm doing page 6 and that seems to be a much easier page and going faster. I still may be laying this piece down for a couple of weeks soon though. Those colors just are not the most colorful.

My brother found an apartment. We are so happy. We were afraid he'd be homeless after Jan. 31. But he found an apartment he can afford. Now he just needs to keep his finances in line. He really hasn't lived alone until three months ago and does have mental disease.

I got to return to Faithful 2 felines yesterday. I missed my cats in rooms 6 and 7. My favorite cat, Jacy, got adopted which I was so happy. I missed her but happy she has a home. Now there are several other really nice cats that need to be adopted. Although they will live out their lives there if they don't get adopted. And they have it pretty goo there. This past week one of the volunteers came in and said there was a cat meowing to get in so the people in charge went to get it and found tape on it's back legs. Needless to say they were upset, got the tape off, fed the cat and gave it water then sent her to a foster home where she will be taken care of. Like they said even if she's chipped the people aren't going to admit to owning her. We sort of think she was dropped off there or near there.

My sister is coming in Tuesday. She's hoping to return Tim's cat to him. She took care of her while Tim was in the hospital. We're going to help Tim pack up for his move. I'm hoping to get out to Jo Ann's to get some floss. It's funny all that floss I have yet I always find numbers I don't have or low on!

Well, I'm going to go read some blogs. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Hi Barb, good to hear that your brother has found an apartment and how lovely that you volunteer with cats. I have the same problem with thread - I have been building and building up my thread stash but I still never seem to have the right colour! lol!

Glad he was able to find an apartment, hopefully everything goes well for him. Liberty is looking great, but I can see how you'd might want a break from the colors and work on something else. Looking forward to see what you pick up and decide to work on. I think it's a floss conspiracy sometimes, it always seems no matter how much floss I have I'm still missing a color or two that I need.

Liberty is looking great and I congratulate you enormously for persevering with page you-know-what!
I look forward to seeing what you pick up next. :)

That Statue of Liberty looks like it's full of confetti stitching. It would drive me nuts I think!
So happy when animals find their forever homes! Happy for your brother too, it would be devastating to be homeless!
