ISHW Week-end

So sorry I did not post my ISHW post yesterday, I was so excited to just do an update with all the problems I have been having with blogger.

This is a sweet little ornament Sue H. my sister from another mother gave me, I think it is so adorable, thank-you Sue.

I found this adorable pattern on Pinterest, I am not sure of the artist, I did this on 32 count two over two, he is going to be a scissor fob. I stitched him on my ISHW.

I also worked on Just Nan Little Princess Snow, I did change out the fabric color and thread colors, I wanted something a little different, I am also going to cut the big round eye circles in half, I want her to look a little more dramatic, wish me luck.

My next project to start is a Jeanette Douglas pattern,  I bought this pattern when Jeanette was teaching a class in Minnesota a few years ago, I was at the retreat she gave the class in, she is a hoot.
I just need to get the fabric, I plan on starting this sometime next week.

My wonderful sister-in-law sent this card to me early, she is so funny please read the card it is so funny, sorry about the cuss words, very early for my birthday, we are going to Mexico next month for a great getaway, I so look forward to this vacation every year.
The people staying at our home for us are a beautiful couple, it is a little vacation for them being away from home, and taking care of our home for us, besides boo boo kitty needs someone here to keep her company.

I should get ready for bed the alarm clock goes off at 03:00 tomorrow for work, ugh, it is going to be sleeting out and turn into rain later in the day ugh again, I do love my job, I have a wonderful boss and work for a wonderful company.

This is an update to my thank-you 1/21/2015

Thank-you all for your help, I do have Google Chrome, tried Firefox also gave me problems, its time for the computer doc. to stop by.
I am updating my post this is the only post I have been able to update, so I went with it.
First is the December/January exchange from Lynda Ruth, who lives in our neighbors to the north, Canada.
First ( only because I do not want to push it with this picture problem) is some positively beautiful fabric, it is 21x10 in size I have a plan for this fabric, stop by sometime soon to see.

Lynda Ruth also sent along an adorable bag with a blackbird on it, I love blackbirds with candy inside yummy, I was also gifted with this adorable little TY Beanie it is from the Beanie Boo's Collection. So sorry the picture is not so good.

This is the exchange piece she sent me. this is a Little House Needleworks pattern, she is just so  sweet.

I was also gifted with a notebook which will be put to good use along with an adorable C of course for Catherine, this will be hung on my office door. Do you see the sweet little card, it is just so sweet.
Thank-you Lynda Ruth for the beautiful gifts,  I am very touched by your kindness.

I was lucky to have purchased this Tilda book on Amazon, I do surveys for three companies and get Amazon Gift cards, what a better way to use that card, shopping on Amazon.

I did buy this book along with the other book, I just love the Tilda books, I am sure I will be busy this spring.

I won a drawing from Lynn over at stop over to her blog, Lynn has some sweet freebies to share. She just posted a freebie cat who has knitting needles and yarn it is adorable.
I plan on printing this onto fabric and using the labels for my stitching and gift giving.

I will post again tomorrow, I want to show you what I received from Sue H.
I hope to post pictures of some other fun things, but only if blogger cooperates with me, I feel lucky tonight.
I have not even been able to comment on your blogs, so sorry.
I wish you all a safe and warm winter.
