It is Tuesday night December 20th. This has been a busy week. It all started last Tuesday morning with out basement being flooded. We finally got the water out and dried out.

Wednesday I spent the day at the hospital with my Mom and Dad while he was having two units of blood. My Mom doesn't see very well so I went with them to help out.

The rest of the week I was busy baking for Christmas. Made my lemon breads today. Tomorrow will be Shortbread cookie day.

I have been stitching. I am on the last 1/4 of Flowers for Momma and am also stitching on Winter White Santa. I stitch on Butterfly Fairy for my daughter when she isn't home.

Here is a picture of Sabrina that I finished and of Quaker Diamonds. Also pictured is My Day Complete.

A little update

Haven't been very diligent in posting to my blog. I have been stitching on Sabrina by Mirabilia and on Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor. Other than that just doing the usual stuff. Housework and looking after the family.

A weekly update

Here it is another week gone again. Haven't been doing very much this week since I got out of the hospital on July 12th. Went in to the ER on Thursday, July 8th with real bad stomach pain and throwing up. The doctor at first thought it was gasritis but the second doctor I saw on my second trip to the ER found a hernia. The surgeon was called in. He ordered a cat scan and decided from that that I needed surgery. Had it done about 11:00pm Thursday night. Not a lot of pain but more pulling on the incision. I now have another 4 inch scar. It is still healing but I am doing fine. Can't lift anything over 10lbs. so have to get my family to carry my laundry up and down stairs.
With not being able to do much I have been stitching. I am stitching on Sabrina. Want to have her finished to enter in our Exhibition the first of September. Have her almost half done. Will keep you up on the progress.
Better go for now and get some more stitching done.

Here it is July

Where has June gone. Can't believe that is already a month and a couple of days since my birthday. No wonder a person feels old. Here are some pictures of my latest finishes. The first one is the front and back of a biscornu called When Barnabee Met Bella by Lizzie Kate and the second one is called Quaker and Quilts by Rosewood Manor. I am working on Sabrina now. Hope to have a picture of what I have done soon.

Here it is July

I'm back

Have been a little slow posting to my blog. I have two finishes added to my finish list. One by Paula Vaughn called Lovely Lillies and one by Sue Hillis called Needleworker's Sampler. Enjoyed stitching both of these. Here are the pictures of the end results. I almost forgot about the Graduate one by Heinzeit that I did for my son. He just graduated from high school in 2008. I am a little behind on that one.

It me again

Hi, haven't updated for awhile. I have had a terrible cold since the end of March and am starting to feel better with the help of antibiotics.

Since I posted last not too much has happened. I want to post a picture of one of my creations.
I had fun doing this one.
I guess that is all for now.

Better late than never

Has been awhilc since I posted but I have been busy sewing and stitching. I finished my Lizzie Kate Christmas Double Flip from 2008. Think I will make it into a bell pull. I am still working on Lovely Lillies by Paula Vaughn. I am 3/4 done.

As for my sewing. I am cutting out fabric for small thread holders, treasure boxex and small pincushions. Want to get some made up to take to Retreat with me in April.

Here is a picture of the Lizzie Kate and of my Treasure Box.
