A finish and some family time

Good morning everyone! 
I have a finish to show you
Home of a Needleworker
Little House Needleworks
Started 5/17/13
finished 6/22/13
28 ct cream Jubilee
called for CC
I will be getting this one framed and find a place to hang it in my living room. 
I actually finished this on Saturday morning. And I have a new start, this one won't take very long to finish up.

I will have this one done in the next couple of days - hopefully!

My weekend was crazy busy with truck pulls and spending time with family and friends.
Here are a few pictures from our weekend.

Mug Rugs

Good Morning Everyone! 
Can you believe it I don't post for almost 3 weeks and now 3 posts in the last week.
I don't have a lot to report this morning, but I wanted to show you what I made last night.
No I didn't make donuts - they are store bought.

It's a Mug Rug, for my coffee cup and snack


This is my first try  at making a Mug Rug and I intend to make more of these cute little mug rugs for myself and gifts for my favorite people. They stitch up quick. What do you think of them? Have you seen them before? I found them on pinterest.

Here is a update on Home of a Needleworker.

It is kinda quite around the farm this morning. We sold 21 head of fat steers yesterday so we only have 6 steers left in the fat lot. And then we hauled the last of the cow-calf pairs out to the pasture. No more sitting here playing on my computer and watching the baby calves running around.

Well I need to finish my dishes up and then get ready to run my errands this morning.

Quilting and Sewing

Good Sunday Morning!
On Friday I posted that I felt like doing some quilting and that is what I did, but not quilt blocks I made a table topper. I had the majority of it done on Friday. then Saturday morning I put the binding on, now I just have to do the hand sewing on the binding. Her is a couple of pictures of it.



Then yesterday I also made a pillow case for a pillow that I leave on my couch when some one wants to take a nap. Here's a couple pictures of it.

I think it turned out kinda cute. I know I could have just gone and bought one at a store but this was more fun. A couple of years ago I made a pillow case for each of my grandkids. The two boys got John Deere pillow cases and the girls got Disney Pricness. They are really easy to make.

Well the husband just told me I have to go help him grind feed for the cattle :( Not m favorite job. Today will  be a dirty day as we had an inch and a half of rain yesterday so we get to work in mud.

Until next time!
Happy Stitching

Way over due post!

Good Morning Everyone!!!!
Oh my goodness where did the last couple of weeks go? 
Nothing exciting has been going on here. Just the same as always - cleaning, laundry, mowing & dieting. Then get up the next day and do it all over again. I have worked on my family history several days, found some interesting stuff and hit some road blocks, but love looking and putting pieces of the past together.

Last weekend my future daughter in law had a bridal shower and she got a lot of nice gifts. This week end is her bachelorette party. I plan to go for the beginning of the evening (supper and drinks) and when the girls take off in the party bus I will be going home and let them party the night away. ( This 50 some year old can not keep up with a bunch of 25 year old's any more).

I have only been working on one project since my last post and that is: 
Home of a Needleworker

In my last post I only had the blue in the house done. I am still counting my stitches as I go, so here is the stats so far.
Just the blue in the house had 882 stitches in it.
And as of last night I had completed 3758 stitches on this piece so far.

I don't know how much stitching I will get done today because I have been wanting to do some quilting.So after I get off this computer I will be heading to my craft room and working on some quilt blocks. I have not worked on quilt blocks for quite some time.

Well that is about it for now.
Happy Stitching
