Many Things Happening Here

First of all thank-you to all who have written and asked if everything  is okay.
No many things have happened, first my Mother is doing better, thank-you all for your prayers and concerns, it touch's my heart.
Michael and I went to Mexico for almost two weeks, it was wonderful, we had a couple of things happen, one was that we had some extremely rude and very loud people on our floor in the five suites on each side of our suite, we had to call the front desk, they were finally told to leave on the third night.
The next happening was Mike became a little ill, now before you think food or water no it is his health, last week Mike went in for a consultation with a Cardiologist, he was then told he would have a stress test by treadmill, this should some problems, so yesterday he went in for an angiogram to have stents put in three arteries, they did not do the stents, the blockage is too close to the heart chambers, he needs to have a triple bypass,, we of course are very afraid, this surgery will be done on Tuesday next week, so please I beg of you to pray for his recovery, I need this Man in my life he is my everything.

I was crying my eyes out today and the doorbell rang it was the mailman, he delivered a package, I did not feel like opening it up but when I read the address label I had to open it.
Kim from sent me a beautiful Porcelain Box she hand painted herself, it is stunning, she also sent along a wonderful  Victorian Thumb Pincushion and a lovely Shepherds Bush Kit  Hearts For you, I was thrilled.
Thank-you Kim for your beautiful heart and kindness.

Next is a bracelet I made on Saturday last week, I love beading almost as much as counted thread.
I can make three more bracelets from the beads leftover, all I need to buy is the clasp, so I am going to make a bracelet for my lovely Mother and my Sister-in-law.

it really is much prettier then the picture, the gold beads look like real gold.

I have done some stitching on my Kindred Spirits from Ellen Chester With My Needle  Designs.

I did get the long band for the tray stitched, I finished stitching this on the ISHW that  host's I started the smaller band, which I hope to stitch on this evening.

Next I bought a Sewing Necessaire from Nancy Turner at

I love this Nancy even sent some free charms, I need to pick out a design to add them to.
Time to eat dinner so I shall say goodby  until Sunday.
I will post a couple of photos our vacation but only special ones that mean so much.
I had to update this post I forgot to put a picture of Krissy on here so sorry.

Here she is relaxing on Daddy's chair, she knows not to  get on the furniture but just for the picture I let her.

This is daddy combing her hair she loves to get combed, she has to be the gentlest dog I have ever met.
Krissy has her own Facebook page Krusty A Musty is the Facebook page name we did not name her this, she was named by a rescue Society in Texas, she ended up in Minnesota due to the lack of bigger dogs in Minnesota.

My Babies are growing

Hello My Dear Friends: I wanted to show you a picture of my new babies and how they are growing,
four just adorable baby Robins, Mom lets me get up close while she feeds them, and of course I cannot get a picture of me doing this.
This will be my last post for 111 days I am leaving on vacation, I will be taking my laptop but some wife's do not work, and I am sure Mike will not blog for me.

Aren't they adorable.
I will tell you about my getaway when I come back.
Hugs and Blessings

My ISHW Second Post A Little Late

Hello everyone: I am late posting my second half of ISHW hosted by the lovely, Joyce has been hosting this great ISHW week-end for a while now, I am so happy Joyce does this it motivates me to get stuff done.

I finished all the stitching on my Bristol Sampler Stitching Bag, by  Betsy Morgan Designer, from Willing Hands Needlework Design.
Now I need to find the time to put it together, wish me luck.

Next is my Retreat project from last year I am a bit slow, this is the Kindred Spirits from Ellen Chester With My Needle Designs, I love this project, I just get waylaid with other things like beading and sewing and stained glass.
I am almost finished with the stitching, I hope to have it finished by the time I return from vacation.
This is the longest band I need to finish the two shorter bands hopefully soon.

This is the finished project.
I am a Grandmother times four, look at our babies
Last week

                                                                         This week

They are so cute, I cannot wait to see them fly away.
I am showing you some beautiful sunset pictures from a couple of weeks ago, the fires sadly up in Canada and northern Minnesota gave us a lot of smoke, it did give us lovely picture of the sun.

These pictures are all untouched this is the way they looked when I took the 30 pictures I chose the best for you.

Time to stitch.
