A Givaway

I am so slow at posting progress, and commenting on others blog sites I am so sorry it has been such a busy summer weddings,  funerals, graduations, work and my garden I have not had much time to post.
I have been reading lots of blog sites just not enough time to comment.
So I am haveing a givaway, this is such an adorable pattern  Lizzie Kate My Secret Garden, the profits  from this pattern were donated to Trees For Life.
You only need to enter once you donot need to post about this on your blog, this givaway will end on July 31st.
good luck to you all.
I love Lizzie kate patterns they are so sweet.
Happy stitching to you all.

Finally Finished

I am so tickled to have this done, I started this beautiful pattern and put it away so many times, I do wish I had finished it last year, I pulled and stitched so mnay times I was almost ready to toss it I am so glad I did not do that, this is a Ursula Michaels Give Thanks from the Stitchers World Wagazine September 2004.
I bought the ric rack from an ebay site (Nancy dyes all her own trims.)
This is one of the Up For A Challenge 15 I sure am happy to have it done, now I can dig into my works in progress and finish another project from the Up For A Challenge.
I do hope this posting finds you all well.
Blessings to you all

Happy Fourth OF July

I have not been able to post due to several things, numerous graduations, two weddings out of town, three funerals, a Mother that is ill, a Father-in Law who just got out of the hospital along with extended hours at work, I am so glad I am a patient person or my head would have popped off by now.
I have done little stitching but did get lots in yesterday, I will be able to post tomorrow the finished project.
Now on to today, what a wonderful day it is the freedoms we have in this country are too numerous to mention,I am blessed to be able to believe in God one of the freedoms many countries do not have, the freedom to express myself, I could go on for a long time but I think you get the picture, I lay in bed last night at 02:00 listening to the fire works going off I just could not get upset about this,  how many other countries do this kind of celebration.
Mnay of my neighbors were upset this morning I just said it is a few days a year we hear fireworks so go with it.
Many of the homes in our small neighborhood are decorated for the 4th, its so much fun to see the different ways people decorate, on the lakes around here we have boat parades, the boats are decorated with red white and blue and many parades give something for the best decorated boat so many people really go all the way.
My wonderful husband is in town selling tickets for the Knights Of Cloumbus tracker raffle, the parade stars at 10:30 and goes until about 13:00, he should be ready for a cold beer when he gets home, we will have brats and weiners with corn on the cob today, we only eat the hotdogs on the fourth its kind of a tradition around here.
I am working on my Up For A Challenge Ursula Michaels Give Thanks I will be so glad to have this finished, I am also working on With Thy Needle and Thread Birds Of A Feather, this is a stitch along with the Stitchersvillage.
I do need to go now I have a cup of coffee calling my name and I have gone on to long.
Blessings to you all on this most wonderful day.
