Look What I found

Today was a long day at work I did get some stitching done I feel so refreshed when I stitch, I have not had a needle in hand for a little while, it felt so good

On the way home from work there were three accidents one of them shut down a part of 694 in the three lane area, my 2 1/2 hour trip ended up being about 3 1/4 hours long, I was so happy to be home, I cleaned the two upper bathrooms I clean in stages on wednesdays and thursdays only because I leave so early in the morning and get home so late that is why I call it a two day cleaning stage.

well I was feeling so sorry for myself that I just needed a pick me up and lo and behold my husband did it he showed me a nest that a returning robin is building every year she returns and builds a nest on our front porch, this one is perhaps the most unique one yet, you can see from the photo that she has one of my fake roses in the middle of the nest, I cannot wait to see the finished product, I will post pictures after it is finished and with eggs in it.

I also wanted to show you my little Peanut the Dog she thinks she is so cute when I put dishes in the dishwasher she thinks she is helping by standing on the door after she gets down I have to clean the door before I can start the thing up, I just donot have the heart to kick her off she is getting old and some of the things she has been doing lately are strange she will stand at the wall and stare at it for a little while and sometimes she will start to bark at nothing after all she is 112 in dog years 16 human years.

I am working on one of my Up For A Challenge 15 this is a thanksgiving pattern I have put this thing aside so many times only because I make a mistake and have to rip out, hopefully I can get this done sometime this week-end.

Stay healthy everyone, pray for good weather and good health.

Blessing to you all

My exchange to Lynda

This is a pattern I really enjoyed doing I almost wanted to keep it for myself and start another project for the Blackbird Designs Exchange, but had little time to start another exchange piece, Lynda did leave a comment that she really liked what I did for her.

The pattern is from the Blackbird Designs Thank-you Sarah Tobias booklet, the pattern is the For My Daughter I did make a few changes I put Spring 2011 and changed the alphabet a little, I used an unknown fabric I think it may be a linen type fabric, I used Cresent Colours Blue Moon, Pixie Dust, Pablano pepper and Weeks Dye Threads Honeysuckle, I used a braided pink trim for the edge, I tried many different ideas to finish the edge this just seemed to do the trick.

I have been very busy with work having three guys out one with a broken wrist, one having carpel tunnel sugery and another on vacation, so in 9 days I put in 90+ hours some days were only seven hours others were longer so the stitching had to take a back seat.

I am now working on a Up For The Challenge 15 I hope to have this finished this week sometime, wish me luck.

Blessings to you all.

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday

I know I have not blogged for almost a month I do want to say I am a little behind with three people out at work I am doing double duty.
Today is Divine Mercy Sunday, my husband and I were able to attend Mass at the St Paul Seminary School of Divinity at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul Minnesota.
This was for Supporters of the Seminary we have been supporters for a few years, we enjoy doing this, knowing that our money is helping to support the needs of Seminariens who need financial help, you see we donot have children God had other plans for us so, we find this very rewarding its kind of like having children but no responsibilities.
The Mass started at 10:00 the music was unbelievable the singer was one of the many Semenariens graduating this year and being Ordained in August.
The breakfast was after Mass and the layout was way to good I love fruits and veggies and they had lots and lots, along with a meat and eggs.
We had a wonderful Deacon at our table he is being Ordained in August and will head back to South Dakota, how lucky they will be to have such a bright Man to lead them in their Church.
I truely missed being in my own Parish today but the trade-off was well worth the day away.

Well I should now talk about my stitching I have been a little behind on this matter also, I did manage to get my Blackbird Designs Exchange done and sent out I will post pictures around wednesday or thursday just to make sure that She has recieved it I hope she likes it.
I am going to jump on my WIPS I am doing the Up Fo A Challenge 15 I really need to get on the ball here I have many commitment coming up my Nephew is marrying a beautiful Indian Girl and they are having a tradional Indian wedding with the Henna painting on the hands this is for prosperity and good luck, they are having tradional wedding wear, I am so excited.
I am going to start painting the bathroom and master bedroom I have had the same paint for over 9 years so it is time i am going totry and not forget to stitch I really need this time to mtself.
I hope you all will pray for the unfortunate people in the south due to the tornados, I hope they recover fast and put this horrible event behind them.
Blessings to you all
