Pages 3&4 are done. Only 9 1/3 pages to go!

Slowly but surely this piece is getting to the finish line. This is after about 624 hours of stitching. I'd like to get page 9 done and page 13 started before laying this piece down until January.

Thank you for your comments they have been encouraging to me. Thank you for reading and flollowing my blog. I really appreciate it.

Until next time.....Happy Stitching.

Update on America

I know it's a little crooked. Sorry about that. I don't know if you can tell I've made progress on this or not. I have made quite a bit of progress in the last couple of weeks actually. Pages 3 and 4 are almost done. Page 4 only has 14 columns so it's a short page.

I've had my brother's cat here for about 10 days. My friend was going out of town for the weekend so had to bring the cat back here. Another friend loaned me her son's dog kennel so I could keep Snowball in it. She did pretty well in it until today. Today she had had it with being in the kennel. I would let her out once in the morning for about an hour, then after noon 2 or 3 hours, and evening 1 hour then she'd be in kennel for the night. Saturn (my cat would be in bedroom. Only problem he figured out how to open the door when he wanted out. Until today he hadn't opened the door for a couple of days, and Snowball was meowing to get out as soon as I put her in kennel. So I did let the two cats be together, things went well until Snowball decided to make a dash for the bedroom and Saturn would not have that! Fortunately no cat fight, I grabbed Snowball and brought her back out to living room and kept Saturn in bedroom until he got out again. But they got along. Finally Tim was released from the hospital. First he was then he wasn't and then he was again. He came and got Snowball and boy was she happy to see him. He just called a little while ago and said she hasn't let him out of her sight and she is cuddling up to him on his lap. She is loves to cuddle. I thought Saturn was a cuddler but not compared to Snowball. I will miss her but I'll get to see her off and on.

My sister is coming in to town next weekend I already have plans for her. Go to Jo Ann's get floss for one thing. I'm crossing my fingers that I have enough 890 to finish pages 3 and's going to be close.

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

Progress on America

What a morning this has been. My brother called me and said he needed to bring his cat over as he was going to be in the hospital for med adjustments for a few days. So I said fine. The last time Snowball was here Saturn (my cat) and her got along fine. So when Tim dropped her off I immediately opened the carrier and let her out. BIG MISTAKE!
Saturn tore right into Snowball even under the bed fighting. I broke it up within a couple of minutes. Left Snowball in the bedroom and brought Saturn to the living room. I was so upset! I called my friend Jody and asked her if Snowball could stay with her and she said yes. So Jody came and got her, we went to Tim's to get the kitty litter box as here I had planned on them sharing it like they did before. And I had to buy Kitty litter from the store. We got to Jody's, of course snowball hid under the bed while I was there. Believe me I was a complete basket case I was so upset and hyper. After I left Snowball warmned up to Jody and snooped around the house. Snowball had seen Jody before so she wasn't a stranger. I'm calming down now. Last time Snowball was here she wouldn't let him on his cat tree. Maybe that's why he wasn't welcoming. But they say cats are territorial and don't exactly welcome new cats right away. So much for my thoughts about adopting Snowflake or Adam from Faithful. Not going to now.

I ran out of floss this past week to finish page 9 so I started page 4. These two pages are both going fairly easy, not so much confetti stitching on these two pages. I needed a break from that!

Today being 9-11 a significant day in history so this piece is appropriate for this time of year. Do you remember what you were doing when you heard the news. I had just woken up and my brother called me. I turned on the tv and basically was glued to the tv for most of the day.

Well...until next time! Happy Stitching.

Back to Stitching on America

Good afternoon! I have gone back to stitching on this America piece for my brother. I plan to finish page 9 and page 3 this time around. Pages 3 and 4 look very simple as they are mostly of the sky. Page 4 only has about 4 columns. It's going quite fast right now not so much confetti stitching on left on this page.

Well....not much has happened these past 2 days so until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Summer Flowers Finished

Good Afternoon. I just finished these a couple of hours ago. Later in the week I'll mail them, the Disney Car, and Ladybug Baby off to my nephew's wife. They will finish them off the way they want. These flowers were so much fun to do. I hope to do the fall flowers in Oct. or early Nov. We will see.

Sunday our church had their annual neighborhood picnic. The church service was held outside. We were so pleased with everything. We had so many people come in and are excited. In fact in a few minutes another friend and I are heading to the church and helping our Pastor and his wife write out the thank you for coming cards. Usually I do it by myself but that's only when we just have a few visitors, that many I need help. It was such a beautiful day for it. We had the police and fire dept. there, plus a minor league basketball team, games for the kids. It was a fun day.

So I guess I better go get ready to leave, get off the computer. Until next time....Happy Stitching!
