My Birthday Present and an Illness

Hello My Dear Friends: It has been a trying four days, I have not been ill for over 15 years, now I am suffering with a terrible sinus infection which has kept me down for three days, I have never slept as much as I have in the last three days, I used to love the pillow top mattress we have but now it has become my enemy, along with the Benadryl I am taking three times a day, I am up only about an hour and then back to bed, I hate this so much, at least it is not in my chest or throat.

Last Sunday Mike surprised me by going to the ATT store and getting me my first IPhone and IPad, I have finally grown up, now I can use the discount app for Target yahoo.

I know some of you are saying what took so long, I am not sure, I guess it has a lot to do with not being very technologically talented, but hey we are talking about me, someone who does not like change, I am finally here, I am excepting the change, yahoo.

I do have some other things to show you, I am getting sleepy eyed and need to sleep a little more until tomorrow.

My Friends

Just a drive by post

It is snowing lightly today it is very pretty, but the roads are slippery, Mike is shopping for his Father today and I am home waiting for ATT to come out and put in the new box's for our t.v."s yahoo, we bundled and boy did we get a deal, we do not have to pay for channels we do not use,  60.00 yep 60.00 a month for satellite t.v. yahoo we were paying 145.00 a month what a rip off for two years we get a great price of 60.00, it was worth the change.

Now on to stitching news, I received the new Scattered Seed Samplers Gate Keeper Pinpoke, I love this simple but lovely design, it even has little keys to attach to the finished pillow, Tammy has such sweet designs, she is working on a Sampler I have to get, I hope she finish's soon so I may order it.
Her is the new kit I will start working on next week.

I have not done much in the stitching  way this past week, we were moving my Father-in- Law into assisted living he loves it and now its is  hard to get him out to lunch.
This evening Mike teaching  9th grade Religion CCD.
I will be busy stitching on my Paper Snowflakes design yahoo.
I would show a photo but nothing has changed since my last post.

I had trouble with my camera (my own fault) and now want to show you what my wonderful neighbor Cheryl made for me for Christmas a kitchen towel with the shape of the state of Minnesota, I love Minnesota just not the cold that comes with the sate in the winter ugh. I love this towel, I had to promise I would use it and I am, Thank-you Cheryl my dear friend.

In a couple of days I will show you what Mike bought me on Sunday for my birthday.
I hope this day finds you well and stitching, knitting and having a good day.

Greetings Friends

Happy Stitching everyone: I have not gotten much done on the stitching front, we have been busy getting my Father-in-Law ready to move to assisted living, he is happy and sad at the same time, he will be losing a bit of independence, he is 93 still gets around and can do most things for himself, he just needs a little help with eating, he makes not the bet choice's.

I did get some stitching done on Paper Snowflake, I love this design, however I am not sure about the fabric, it looks a lot lighter then the fabric in the package photo, I want to try and do a little dye job before I put on the hands or face, I am scared of doing this but if I spray lightly from a distance maybe it will work.
The thread choice for the skirt looks different then the photo also.
Hopefully it will be finished by January 26th.

I am a member of Stitchersvillage, I love this Village, they have a Forum that you can comment on daily, they have many other things to see and visit, I play Bingo  when they have it, so this month I played and won a lovely design, it is Legacy Pattern Hilltop House and Quilt Barn Christmas Village Ornaments, with backing fabric, pattern, ribbon and padding for the ornaments, I love this, design and will stitch them after I finish Paper Snowflake.

Well today the themps were in the upper 30's yahoo, we are in a January heatwave, for about a week, next week they are saying upper 40's, I cannot wait, I am enjoying this January thaw.
We are suppose to get an ice storm but I think that will not be, so far it is staying in the southern part of the state about two counties away, that is okay with me.
I took Krissy for a long walk today, for her a half hour is long she is still recovering from her knee and ligament surgery  from November, she had a blast sniffing and snorting.
I hope you all are well and are having great weather.
Thank-you for stopping by and leaving me a comment.

Hello My Dear Friends

Thank-you all for your comments on my last post, you all are so wonderful to continue to follow and comment.
I have done some stitching in the past week, I started this on Sunday the first and have not gotten much done, appointments, arranging for my Father-in-law to get ready and move into assisted living,
snow shoveling I do the deck and front porch, Mike is able to work the snowblower so far, taking down Christmas decorations outdoors, reading and more reading (trying to get caught up) finished one book, started another Debbie Macomber  Blossom Street Brides, love her writing style, and of course stitching and beading.
I was contacted by a Lady Susan Morris she asked about a beading project, if you see this post please let me know if you have a Blog Spot, or if someone knows her from Google.

Here is what we woke up to this morning lots of snow we had in the end 6 inch's argh.

WE needed new garage doors, I love the color, Mike did a wonderful job choosing these, I was so sad for the man that put these in last week it was only 5 degrees above zero, he would not come into the house to warm up he sat in his truck, I felt so bad, he did a wonderful job for us.
Our old doors were pooping out.

I took down the last of the ornaments on Saturday, Krissy wanted to help, she snatched this off the coffee table, she does not chew anything but likes to have her own stash of goodies to lay on.

This is what I have been stitching on, this is Brenda Gervais Paper Snowflakes, I did get a little stitching in this week but not as much as I wanted.

                                                so sorry about the blurry photo.

I love this design, I bought he required fabric but it seems to be so light compared to the package photo, I guess different dye lots make a difference, I hope to have this finished by January 26 I want to have it framed for a birthday present.

Well its almost time for one of my favorite programs The Killing Fields, it is a real time series, very interesting to me.

Happy New Year

So sorry about the late post, I have been busy and was only able to comment on other Blogspots.
I want to wish you all a very Blessed and Happy 2017.
Mike and I were talking about how time flies by, I mentioned that when I was teen I thought life ended at 30, wow was I wrong, I am coming up on my 66 Birthday and feel young and am Blessed with very good health, I am not on any meds yet, who knows when and if that will happen.
I am keeping a journal of the stitching I am doing, I will see how long before I forget to journal I may miss a day here and there.
I am working on Brenda Gervais Paper Snowflakes and will post a photo tomorrow.
We have been in a deep freeze for about a week now minus degree temps, brrrr.
It is snowing now and the weather man says up to six inch's to come this week, ick.
We took My Mother to Applebee's today for her Birthday, went shopping and took her home she was tired and wanted to rest.
Well Hotel Transylvania is on, I love this movie, I am an animation freek, it reminds me of cartoons and makes me feel young.

Until Tomorrow
