Where did this week go!!!!

Figured it was time for an update
and did not think
that I had much to report
but as I sit here thinking of what to type
I realize that I stitched more than I thought.
Monday I didn't stitch at all,
So Tuesday  I stitched Hope # 6 of the
12 Christmas Blessings from LK.

Then  I got all the alphabet done on BoaF Mystery Sampler
(sorry no picture of update next posting for sure)
The I got all the christmas presents stitched on
Wanted - Santa from LK
(again no picture yet)
Then I found this very cute Freebie
from Daffycat Designs (here)
I finished it as a pillow for my fall basket.
the material it is setting on is the backing.
Saturday I didn't get to stitch because
my DH had there final Pickup pull in Menno, SD
It was 1:30 in the morning before we got home.

Sunday I did a couple more finishes

this one I stitched up this year, it is also by LK

And another LK that I stitched up last year and
just never finish - finished it.


Here is all 3 of them that I finished up

Well thats about all for now. Time to go watch Mickey Mouse
with my grand daughter and start another christmas blessing.

My DH & I are planning to go on a Benifit Poker Run today.
A group of us will be driving our vintage vehicles.

Time for an Update

I'm not missing just busy! my grandson Trey who just turned 9 years old and is in the 3rd grade has started playing football. He has played two games and I went and watched both of them. Saturday morning was his second game. He is such a cute football player if I do say so.


Sunday found me drinking that great stuff they give you before a colonoscopy.
And Monday morning was my procedure. It took a lot out of me and when
I got back home after it was over I slept most of the day.
Monday night my husband gets home and tells me he bought
5 more baby bottle calves, so now I am up to 15 babys in my barn.
Tuesday I had my little Granddaughter all day so I did not
get to stitch until after supper.

Here are my updates for this past week:

I got a little bit more done on BoaF.


I completed another Christmas Blessing by LK.
That makes 5 done now.


And last night I started Wanted by LK
I love stitching Santa's!
I try to complete at least one every year.

Well I have some more blogs to read and some stitchin I want to do, so
Happy Stitching everyone!

Beautiful Day

Sitting on my deck with a cup of coffee listening to the birds, the trees moving in a gentle breeze, the chickens in the hen house are clucking, and hostein fat calves arrrrrrrrre getting out of there pen as I sit here and watch them. Well so much for relaxing. Off I go to get them back in.

I'm back, with the help of my two big dogs we got them in and hopefully they stay in! Now warm my coffee up and back to relaxing. I love this time of the year, now hot and not cold, just right to sit outside and relax.

Last night I sat and worked on BoaF Mystery Sampler ( I know all three parts are out and I am still working on it) I got all the leaves of the tree done and now I am starting on the boarder.


Monday I finished another of my 12 Christmas Blessings by LK - that makes 4 that I have completed stitching.
this one gave me some problems:
As I started to stitch it the thread I was going to use decided to knot up
grab a new piece of floss and start stitching.
Got the roof and beside the church done, then realized
they were suppose to be stitched in gunmetal not whitewash.
I decided to leave it and frog it later.
After I finished the piece I thought it looked ok so I left it as is.
No frogging!
Oh ya I am 1/2 stitch off and I think it is in the lower left corner.
but you can't tell it.

Here is all four of the stitched Blessings


Well time to get some house work done and them some more stitching.
Happy Stitching

My Stitching Space

A few weeks ago I read a couple different blogs
and they were showing off there
Stitching Space.
So I decided to show off where I sit and stitch


My Husband calls this mama bears chair

This is on the right hand side of my chair, all my little
stitchy stuff is in my chocolate tin.


This basket is too my left side and holds my
WIP's and ofcourse my orts.
And the wicker box it is sitting on is full too.


And there you have it, nothing fancy just my own
little piece of heaven.

I would love to see where everyone else does
there stitching.

Happy Stitching
