I have to hurry while I have a internet connection on this post

Hello to all: Again we are having internet connection problems, the businesses in town have been down just as much as I have, called to the city hall this morning complaining, I do not know if the problem will be fixed, eight times since the first of the year they have been out to my home, I keep telling them it is not me but their awful connection, they say we should be up and running due to the fact that they upgraded us, I would give anything to be back where we were, yes the speed was slow but we did have no problems with connections.

Anyhoo, I was on my way home today from an awful run, a patient that was so bad I almost quit my job., so on my way home, I see a neighbor has her grandchildren in the driveway selling cool-aid, so I stopped, I am so glad I did, I asked this little sweetheart how business was, she said slow, so the 50 cent cup of cool-aid was the best four dollars I spent, she was so thankful and so very happy, by the way it was so good.

Next is the Shepherds Bush Safe Keeping Scissor Fob, I am so happy with this heart, it is beautiful,
done on 32 count French Vanilla Linen, using Silk Floss one over two, the ribbon is so beautiful, I love the addition of the beads.

Up next is another Shepherds Bush this is the Shepherds Fold Scissor Fob, done on 32 count Stone Steps, ( I love that name) this is also done one over two with overdyed threads, I love the ribbon and beads on this one also.

I received my new kit from Scattered Seed Samplers, it is the first of a four part series, this is Moriah's Summer Token, I love it, there is a stick to make a paddle fan, the fabric Tammy has chosen is beautiful, the fabric is 32 count Belfast Platinum Linen, this linen is beautiful, the backing fabric is lovely and perfect for this project.

I wanted to show you a picture of the wonderful protection Tammy puts around the package before putting in an envelope to mail, Tammy thinks of so many sweet things, also there is a small sheep charms included, thank you Tammy I love it.

Now on to something that has nothing to do with stitching, I stopped by the Phillips Eye Institute to say hello and drop off paper work, as I was standing outside talking with a couple of people I spotted a beautiful butterfly,  a swallowtail, I think it is beautiful.

Not a real good picture, I hope you can see it.

Well I need to get to stitching, I am working on another Shepherds Bush Scissor Fob, it is the All Seasons Fob, this has sheep on it I will post again soon if the Windstream will let me, my internet company.
I hope you are all getting loads of stitching done.

Oh So Much Trouble And Some Stitching

Greetings to all, welcome to my new followers: I have been having so much trouble with my internet account with ( I am going to say it) Windstream  phone company, we have been without internet access for far to long, I called the company and asked for a refund for the days I could not use the internet, they did not want to do this but had to I was not nice.
We are up today but I am sure will be down again soon.
This has been an ongoing issue since the first of the year, I am sure they think I am the ultimate b****, but when you pay for something you should get what you pay for.

Now I want to say I am so sorry to all the people that have emailed me from blog world, I am so sorry this was a problem I could not take care of, the City of Annandale is looking for a new broadband company, yippee if it happens.

Sooo on to what I have been doing, I have finished my Sampler from Scattered Seed Samplers, A Token Of Spring oh how I love this beauty, it is such a soft and lovely design I will do more in the future.

I used crushed walnut shells and stuffing,  that is why it looks a little yonky, is that a word I do not know, I love Tammy's Designs I am totally hooked she is a new designer, she has a couple of other series out please check her out at

I did receive the next installment from Scattered Seed and will start working on it this evening after finishing my current project.

Happy Hearts Rejoice is the next in the series of four, a lovely Pinkeep Nest.

So sorry about the picture I did not take the bag off and now it is raining, it is to dark in the house to take pictures.

I am working on a Shepherds Bush Safe Keeping scissor fob, this is a quick stitch, I will finish it today.

I was in a second hand store and found a great case to carry my beading and patterns, this little beauty was only 2.49, oh my goodness, I feel lucky, I love this carrycase.

The bottom picture of the case is gray in this picture for some reason, maybe the battery is low.
This is such a handy case, I bought one from Joann Fabrics many years ago and it cost me over 30.00 so I find this a real deal.

Now on to my retirement, yes it will happen, I am sad to leave the company I work for they have been so good to me, I have also been good to them the last  22 years, you know I only called in sick 7 times and canceled 6 runs due to icy roads, when I went in to tell my boss I was retiring in October  he said jokingly he did not want to talk about it, he is such a wonderful man, we are lucky to have him, I have grown to love all the people and their families at work, we are so close, I will miss them so much.

I did tell him when our customer coordinator goes on vacation I will take over for her, they just send the 1800 number to my home for the time she is off, I just love modern technology, he was so happy.
I have been putting in loads of hours due to vacations, this is o.k. with me.
I have not taken my laptop with me because I am always driving or transferring patients.
I work at the Phillips Eye Institute in Minneapolis several times a month, so it is hard to work on my laptop.

I have my Mother almost settled into her new home, yippee, she is doing so much better, I am so proud of her, she is one of the rocks in my life, I am so Blessed to have her.
I hope all of you had a wonderful 4th, we were lucky to have my Mother, Sister-in-law, Sister-in-law and her Husband and my wonderful Neighbor Gary, he was all alone and was so thankful for the invite.

I will try and comment on your blogs later today.
