I haven't been doing too much lately. I have been doing up a little black work project that I am teaching to our Guild this month. I am also almost finished stitching Celtic Banner. I will post a picture when it is finished.

I guess I had better keep up on my blog better. I have been stitching on my Celtic Banner. Getting more and more done everyday.

Thought I had better check in

I am still here. I haven't fallen of the face of the earth. I have been stitching and sewing. Since my last post I have been to Embroidery Seminars in Sackville, NB, Victoria, BC and Winnipeg, MB. Had a great time. Took a class from Thea Dueck in Victoria. My land she is such a nice person and a great teacher. I plan on going to Ottawa, ON next year. Hopefully my hubby will be able to go to.

Hello, I am still here

It sure has been awhile since I last posted. I kept telling myself that I needed to post something but just put it off so today I decided to dive right in. Christmas was a bit different for me this year since my Mom and Dad passed away. I had my two brothers and their families over on New Years Day. Got to see my first great neice. She is 3 months old and just as bright as a button. Takes everything in. It was funny to see my brother fuss over her.
I have been stitching. I finished two pieces and I am trying to finish The Quiltmaker. I don't want to start another project until I finish this one.
I have also been doing a little bit of knitting. I am in the process of making an afghan. It is a pattern that I got from my sister in law. It is made from Homespun yarn on size 10mm needles. It is just straight knitting. I have two balls knit up and starting on my third. She uses 4 balls in hers. I also have been knitting the frilly scarfs. They are sure neet to knit. I have made 4 so far and am on my fifth.
Better go for now and stitch some more.

I am still here



I bet you thought that I fell off the face of the earth. Well, I am still here. What a year this has been. After my Dad came home from the hospital my Mom started going down hill. She was in and out of the hospital off and on for a month or more. She ended up staying the last time the Wednesday after Easter due to a fall in which she cut her arm so had to have stitches and she also has a real bad bladder infection. She never came home. She passed away on May 27th, 2011 the day that my Dad went to live with my brother and his wife. He had stage 4 liver cancer and couldn't stay alone any more. My Dad passed away the following week on June 4th, 2011. We had two funerals within two weeks. We then had the task of cleaning out the house which we finally got done and is up for sale. Hopefully we will sell it soon. I have been doing some stitching. I finished Winter White Santa and am working on Miriabilia's Rose of Sharon. I am doing quite well on her. Other than that not doing too much. Will have to get into sewing for the craft shows.

Another week

Another week done and one starting. Can't believe it is April already. I have been stitching on Winter White Santa quite steady. I hope to have the stitching done in a couple of days and then I can start the beading. Can hardly wait. Will probably run out of the Whisper floss but I have some coming up from my LNS in Moncton. I have been doing some sewing this week also. I have been making Mug Totes and sewing up some more Q-Snap covers to take with me to Retreat. Better go for now. Have to finish making supper. Just have to cook the rice since the ribs are in the slow cooker and do they smell good.
