I want to thank-you all, the men and women who protect this great country of ours The United States Of America.
How lucky we are to live on her land.
Not many people in this world have the freedoms we have, I am so blessed to know several men and women who serve this country so proudly.
THANK-YOU so much.
God Bless America
and all who serve her.
Peace to us all
in the name of Our Lord.

Shepherds Bush projects

Hello everyone: it is about time I post some of the things I kitted a very long time ago.

I am on a Shepherds Bush run and what a run it is, I did manage to finish four small projects this past week-end.

I was not feeling well due to the fact that my super wonderful husband shared his cold with me.

I have not had a cold flu or any illness for over seven years, he says it is the lucky number seven that did it to me not him.

I will post finished pictures later this week, I will show you the one complete finish I did do.

This is the Christmas Treat bag.

I did not have a complete kit because the leftovers was gifted to me by my good friend Susan Anderson.

I hope you like my finish.

Peace Be with you.

Blackbird Retreat

This is some of the things we did at the Blackbird Designs retreat in April put on by Stitchville USA.

We had so much fun with Deb and Deb these ladies really know how to host an event.

The mother of pearl thread keeper was one of the freebies for the week-end.

Alma and Barb are a real treat to meet.

They came with many and I mean many ideas to use their patterns on and in.

We were able to sand stain and wax a sectioned box and fill it with goodies. The Tulip House was oneof the patterns we recieved along with the threads and material to finish the projects you see. The boxes are available through Hobby Lobby.

We stitched a pin keeper pictures of both the box and the pin keeper are posted.

If you can please take a class with Barb and Alma, they were just a hoot.

There were about 32 ladies and what a great group of ladies they were, so full of ideas and fun some came from Ill. Iowa Wisc. and as far away as Maine.

I look forward to another retreat with Stitchville USA.

Thank-you to both Debs.
