A New Start and Finish Today

I Stared this this morning and finished it this afternoon I was on Pinterest and found this photo above, I did my own kind of thing since there was no pattern.
I wanted to make something for Valentines Day, this fit the Bill.

I have also been working on my Scattered Seed Sampler Design, I love this pillow.
So sorry about the bad photos, it is dark out, the lighting at night is not good, either the lights are too bright or not bright enough.

I like Tammy's designs, I hope to have this finished by Friday or before.

Thank-you all for your comments on my last post, you are all wonderful, I still am having problems with emails, so sorry I cannot send out individual thank-you's by email.
Mike is out of town so I had taco salad this evening,  was it good, leftovers with eggs tomorrow for breakfast.
Lunch with my sister in law which is more like a sister to me.
I hope you all are well and getting loads of stitching done.
Until Next Time

Oh No

Did I get your attention? I have had a bad couple of weeks, with a new email server (I have the same email address) and Google not liking me this week and down in bed sleeping about 16 hours a day with a horrendous cold thankfully its not the flu confirmed, I am finally able to get some stitching and blogging done, whew.

I have been working on a few items, I did finish stitching Pin Feathers by Brenda Gervais, I just need to put it together and add the buttons, maybe tomorrow.

So sorry about the wrinkles, I usually iron before construction of a piece.

The wonderful and beautiful Mary from sent this pattern to me, thank-you my friend.

I love Patriotic designs and had to do this one, I plan on putting it on a cigar box top and use for my needles and scissors.
I did find a small red heart and a silver star
, on the flag I stitched a whit star and on the flag on the lower right on the pole I stitched a flag, the flag button I had was way too big for that little area.
( so sorry about the wrinkles)

I am reading and resting, Mike is away for a guy getaway with some Law Enforcement friends, he used to teach a law enforcement class a few times a year at different collages and tech schools but had to retire due to his loss of hearing in his one ear, and his balance issues due to the hearing loss.

So I can eat and do what ever I want minus the Ford, I just have to ask my sister in law for a ride if I need to go anywhere, she is such a sweetheart about helping me.

Well the weather is not too bad today but will dip into the single digits later this week, I am so looking forward to spring even if it rains everyday.

I have not sent out thank-you for your comments due to my email issue so sorry.
Thank-you from my heart for all your comments.

What Is Going On

I am not sure what the heck is going on, I am perplexed, first I had Mozzila Firefox, for those of you who do not know, I do surveys for different companies, I spend about one hour a day between the three companies, I do this in the A.M., well some of the survey's were saying I did not match the criteria for the survey, I was going through about 50 surveys before finding one that fit me, it was not me it was the email service mozzila firefox which was screwing me up so I changed to Windstream email, totally love it but have to enter everyone's email again so I can email you, what a rip.
Then Mikes niece by marriage sends me a facebook message and lo and behold I cannot get it or get into my facebook account, they made some changes and they are not good, what the heck is happening here, my sister in law is being charged for using facebook now, if that's the case I will drop the poopheads like a hot potato.

It is in the minus zeros here again in Minnesota, I am so sick of winter, I do not want time to pass quickly but Dear Lord may we have a break for oh I don't know maybe a couple of weeks from the cold.

I hope you all are out of harms way what with the fires in California and now the floods, the horrible weather in the south and up the east coast, I think the weather needs to take a long hike from us all and Bless us with some nice weather.

Saty warm and cozy my Friends.

that was my rant for the winter so sorry you had to hear it.

Computer Issues I Can Live Without And Some Stitching

Hello to all my dear followers: I hope this day finds you well and not so cold or stuck in snow.
I am so tired of the cold, we had below zero temps for so long then wham we get three days of warm weather then tonight it will rain sleet and snow ick, had to change all kind of things I wanted to do tomorrow, I am sure Krissy the dog will not mind waiting for her shots and nails clipped till next week.

I have been stitching, I am almost done with my Blackbird Designs A Light For The Lawn Loose Feathers For The Birds #2, I have not done # one but hope to get to it soon. So sorry about the wrinkles. I used the called for fabric and almost all the called for threads. These are going to be the colors of the bedroom when we redo it this spring.

I have been making coffee in my percolator lately, I am trying to cut down on my lattes, way too much milk in them lattes.

I wanted to show you the photos I took on Christmas Eve, we have a man a very nice man at our Church who plays Santa every year, he brings the Baby Jesus down so we may kiss the Baby Jesus's feet, it is an emotional moment for many of us.

                                                   This is Michael kissing Baby Jesus Feet


Well its time to stitch, Mike is getting ready for Church he teach's ninth grade CCD Religion, he has been doing this for 17 years now the kids just love him.
I am going to sit and stitch and have some homemade vegetable soup, yummy in my tummy.
To all I wish you good and healthy week.
