Another Finish and something from the past

Good Morning Everyone!

In cleaning out my dad's stuff I found a framed picture that I painted in my early teens. I remember spending some time at the lake with my grandparents and my grandma gave me this project to work on. Do any of you remember Artex paints? Well I used them to paint this picture and it hung in my parents kitchen for many years and now I have it in my kitchen.

And I do have a finish to share today!
Cappuccino 
by Buttons & Beads Autumn Series - Mill Hill
14 ct Mill Hill Perforated Paper
Floss & beads included in kit
Started 3/18/15
Finished 6/16/15
I like the effect of the beads, but not sure I enjoy the beading process.
Here is a picture I took after I hung it in my Kitchen
My Coffee Wall 
I have one more cappuccino picture that needs to be framed to add to the wall.

I am going to close with some pictures that I have taken of my family

New Finish and New Stash

Good Morning Everyone!
 
Can you believe it another post already! 
 
I have another finish to share with you. Had started this piece back in Feb. and had it about 90% done. All that was left was stitching the word Snow and the beads and snowflakes in each corner. I have not decided how I will finish finish it.

Quick up date

Good Morning Everyone!

We had a busy weekend - Terry went truck pulling on Friday night, I didn't get to go because I was working. Then we had another pull on Saturday afternoon, the weather was beautiful while the pull was going on. We got the truck home and the rain started - we ended up with 6 inches of rain in an hour or so. You can imagine all the water standing around and lots of  flash flooding and roads being closed. 

Well on to happier news! 2 more finishes!!!!

First one is
Olde Glory by Heart in Hand Needleart
32 ct Lt Sand Belfast Linen
WDW - Whitewash, Lancaster Red, & Americana
Started 5/30/15
Finished 6/7/15

and the second one is a small one
Smile! by SamSarah Design
32 ct Lt Sand Belfast linen
called for WDW
Started 6/7/15
finished 6/8/15

That's all I have for today. Not sure what I will work on next, maybe I will work on my quilt blocks.

Have a great week!
Happy Stitching

Good Morning Everyone!!!!!!

Once again it's been awhile (April 18th to be exact) 
It has been busy, fun, sad, some family time, some cross stitching, & some quilting. 

Family Time
April 18 we helped my Sister in Law celebrate her 50th birthday
April 19 we joined our grandson as he had his First Communion at church
Gavin is the one in the red shirt

April 24 I started a new quilt
This pattern is out of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine
It is called Thirty Something 

Some of the material I am using


and some of the 4 1/2" blocks that I have completed as of today.
I need to make 42 of these blocks.

May 1st was my mother in laws 80th birthday and we had family from out of state come to visit and help celebrate her birthday.

We spent the weekend of May 8th with our daughter and grand kids camping. It was a little cold and rained Saturday night but we had a great time.

May 12  I traveled to Mitchell SD for PSE training for my Post Office job. Friday May 15 was our testing day and I pass so I still have my job. Ya me!

Thursday May 14th while in Mitchell I got a call that my Dad was taken to the VA Hospital - COPD flair up. We spoke with the Dr. and was told that Dad only had a short time left. So my sister flew in from New Mexico on Sunday and while we were out having supper we got the call that he had passed away.
